What Are You
If you had to choose one right now at this very moment with the way you are living you’re life, what would you pick? Are you a sheep or a lion? For me, the answer is easy. From ages 6-25 I was a sheep there’s no question about it. I was hesitant, scared of life, scared of the journey and my path ahead of me. I thought the best option would be is to do nothing. Just roll with whatever comes my way and just accept it and that was it, deal with whatever cards I was dealt with. I’m sure you can guess, but that’s a horrible attitude and way to live.
We shouldn’t be waiting for life to happen and the journey to come to us. That’s where I think a lot of us screw up, I included in that. Life is what we make it, the journey is what we do every day and in our life. We need to go out and make the most of it and live it up every day, and every second we have. Life is short, it’s time we start treating it like a vacation and enjoy it when we can of course. But it’s also about time we start working and get off our butts and start doing something for ourselves.
Get Back Up
If you’re in a slump and you’re not sure what to do next or what your purpose is. It sucks and you might feel like crap and drained from that. I have been there for longer than I would have liked. Some days I didn’t want to get out of bed, I just wanted to play video games or watch movies. Just to putt off reality and hide from the journey and my life ahead waiting for me. That’s where I screwed up, I know that now. At the time I thought it was where I was supposed to be and what I was supposed to be doing.
With that attitude and mindset, I couldn’t have been more wrong about that haha. That’s life sometimes we need to run into a brick wall and fall and get knocked down. What’s important is that you get back up and keep going. Even if it takes you longer then you would have liked, keep fighting and don’t stop fighting. If you fall again, well then you get back up no matter how many times you fall over.
Enjoy The Ride
I’ll be 28 in a few weeks, and I have never felt more like a Lion in my life. Sure, there’s stuff I’m still working on and trying to get better in. But that’s life, some things will be a lifelong process and battle every day.
I finally woke up one day and it hit me. My life is, of course, is in God’s hands and I know he has everything planned out and figured out already. But a lot of it also falls back on me and what I decide to do with the obstacles and blessings he puts in front of me. Good or bad, it doesn’t matter, what matters is what you make of those obstacles.
I finally feel alive and I’m on the right track for once in my life. I feel like my writing is getting better, well that’s my opinion of course hopefully I’m not wrong haha. I’m starting to get a clear picture of what my future could be and what I want it to look like. The only thing is I have to keep putting in the work, I can’t slow down now. I need to keep working on my craft and keep doing the best I can every day. No matter what comes up in front of me or tries to slow me down.
With all of that said, now start to look at your life and situation you’re in. Are you happy with your choices and the way you’re living your life, or do you want to change a few things? If you want to change some stuff, then change it already. Quit putting it off and say oh I’ll do this or that tomorrow or start Monday. That’s CRAP and a copout answer. That’s why you’re not happy with where you are in your life right now. It all starts with your mindset and what you’re thinking.
Put In The Work
If your goal is to become a Lion, fearless, strong and powerful. Then decide to become a Lion, it shouldn’t be that hard. Now the process and journey to becoming a lion will be hard. But what do you expect, of course, it will? You don’t just wake up the next day, with your dream body or dream job. The only way that happens is if your dreaming, or it’s in a movie or book. You’re going to have to put in work and hours and hours into trying to better yourself and change your old ways.
Deciding that you cant live like a sheep anymore, scared and just following the crowd and content with where you are in life. I personally think you should want more than just being content and ok with your average life. Life should be so much more than that, you should be exploring and putting yourself in danger by taking risks on new opportunities in life and start living.
It’s Time To Start Living
To me, that’s the kind of life I want to live. That’s why I’m a Lion and why I had to change. It all starts with you on the inside first. I understand staying where you are might be safe and comfortable, but that’s boring and gets old quick. There is so much life out there for us to explore and roam just like the King. It’s time we all start exploring together and enjoying the world and jungle that is laid out in front of us every day.
