Give Yourself Direction

I consider myself very fortunate that I have something in my life that I am passionate about and that I absolutely love doing. Martial arts has literally transformed my life and at 23 I have a clear vision of what I want to be doing for the rest of my life - and I am going to be loving it! Its depressing to see people who go to work everyday absolultely miserable, and I refuse to be one of those people! I want to live the dream and be happy - I'm not saying its going to be easy, or that there aren't going to be ups and downs, but I try to take daily steps to make it happen. But to get what you really want out of life, you need to dig deep and find out what TRULY makes you happy - not just what you think might make you happy. Once you do this and practice putting yourself in that mindset everyday, then all of the sudden things start to happen - maybe not tomorrow, or next week, or even next year, but I promise that only the people that take action on a daily basis will reach their destination.

So, as an exercise, what you need to do is sit down with a pen and paper and write down what you truly love doing and write down what you want out of life.

Think about what truly makes you happy and the type of life that you want to live, and go from there. You'll never get anywhere if you don't know your destination!
