I am not here to impress you, I am here to reveal to you the truths necessary for growth. It will be about how to achieve your goals, using the truth, to leave behind a legacy that will protect you from regrets.
The following are 10 harsh truths that you should know:
1. We all have the same problems
My problems are the same as yours. Shit may happen in your life, but you are not alone in this.
Divorce, death of a loved one, refusal or dismissal – this is what many people face.
The realization that your problems are not unique will allow you to move on without getting stuck in place and without sparing yourself.
All your problems are just a process that you must go through.
This process is part of the human experience. You were forced to subscribe to this when your parents decided to conceive you.
2. You do not need experience – ever
Many people do not dare to try to get the job of their dreams only because the announcement states „Experience in this field of at least 5 years”.
This line is part of each job ad template. It is designed to weed out people who love to spend their own and someone else’s time and who are not able to see further obstacles caught in the way. If you give up your dream career only because of this line in the job ad, you are unlikely to work in most companies.
Experience often leads to fixed thinking, when you think you know everything, whereas in reality you do not. Sometimes the best experience is lack of experience and brilliant thinking.
3. All of us in our lives will face the loss of loved ones – be prepared for this
Over the past few years, I have lost many relatives, including my grandmother, who died at the age of 104 because she stopped eating and decided that she had lived long enough. On the day when the doctors told me that she did not have long left, I was far from the city.
I bought a ticket and hurried to her to say goodbye. I arrived just in time. I took my grandmother’s hand and said that I love her very much. She squeezed my hand, closed her eyes – that was it. It seemed to me that all this time she was waiting for me.
Each of us is destined to face a loss in life, so enjoy the time you spend with your friends and family. Do not take them for granted and never leave people who are not indifferent to you in difficult situations.
Let your relationship not be stained by something stupid like disagreements about money or different beliefs. Death is guaranteed for all of us. This is the only thing we can be sure of, and this is the only motivation we need.
4. Complaints are a waste of time
Complaints will not help, this is the lot of whiners who do not want to face the harsh truth: we control everything that happens to us. This means that we control how we interpret all the events happening to us.
Complaining is a disease. No one likes those who always complain. Instead of moving forward towards your goals, you stand still.
5. No one cares about your personal brand
Nobody cares about your ego or how good you are or your company. All we care about is the value it gives us. If you are doing something that is meaningful to others, then we will like it. That’s all.
Your brand is a perception based on the results you showed in the past. The usefulness of your brand is equivalent to what you can teach us, what you can give us or how much you can inspire us.
6. Opinions of other people do not matter
In half of the cases, people who express these opinions are losers who project their desires, needs, failures and desires onto you. They live someone else’s life because their own is crap.
The only opinion that matters is yours. If you believe that you are capable of the impossible, then you will succeed.
7. You do not need education or permission – they are optional
The other day, a colleague asked me if she needed to take social media-related courses if she wanted to work in this area. I answered her: „Why?
Declare yourself online by demonstrating your abilities.”
I also added: “There are a lot of podcasts that you can listen to for free and that require nothing from you except listening. In the end, it all comes down to finding people who have achieved significant results in this area and following their strategies.”
To achieve your goals, you do not need education. You also do not need anyone’s permission. Whatever you do, do not waste time seeking approval. This habit arises as a result of excessive thinking, laziness and lack of action.
8. No one wants to deal with regrets
There have been several studies on what people on their deathbed think. As a rule, most of them regret what they failed to do.
When you realize that there are no barriers and that you should try everything your soul wants, in legal limits of course, you will begin to live life without regrets.
Your life is a miracle. If you like traveling, do it. If you want to build a career in a certain area, do it. Strategies, resources, people come into your life when you begin to act without regrets.
9. Life is full of suffering that you must learn to accept
To some extent, life is like torture. We will suffer from the very first day – this is guaranteed. On the other hand, suffering is torture only when you allow yourself to suffer.
When you consider suffering as a necessity and learn to use it to your advantage, this very suffering becomes the fuel for your goals and dreams. When suffering appears in your life, you already know what to do with it.
Suffering is part of the struggle that helps you do amazing things in this world.
10. Stop wasting your time
Useless action instead of pursuing your passion is the most foolish thing you can do. In the time you wasted, much could have been achieved. If you think that you do not have time to write articles, compose music, train, you are mistaken. You have as much time as I do, so why not devote it to learn what you really like?
