Why is my life so bad right now?

Self-helpWhy is my life so bad right now? Have you ever asked yourself that question?

Perhaps you feel you deserve something better from life? Maybe your life’s not all you’d like it to be. Do you want more, possibly?

Does today’s question resonate with you, dear reader?

You look around and you see people enjoying the sort of life you’d like and you can’t help wondering how it’s all working out for them but not for you.

Who’s at fault?

If you feel this way then you’re not alone, that much is certain.

However, if you do feel this way, do you ever wonder who’s at fault for your life failing to meet your expectations?

Maybe you feel the fault lies with your parents or the teachers you had at school, possibly?

Perhaps you feel the fault lies with your boss or your employer.

They didn’t provide you with the right training or you didn’t get the breaks when there was an opportunity for promotion? Someone else got the promotion simply because they were well in with the boss, right? Perhaps you feel that you were a better candidate than them and yet they got the job? Life can be so unfair, right?

Well, my friend, I have to tell you that, if your life sucks, there’s only one person you can blame. Just look in any mirror and you will see that person staring right back at you.

We’re responsible for our own lives and our lives will always be what we choose to make of them.

Yes, you may have had a few bad breaks in life. Yes, perhaps your parents and/or teachers could have been better. So what? Life’s still what you choose to make it.

I’m not suggesting anything’s easy and, of course, there will always be challenges. Nevertheless, there will always be opportunities for the enterprising and fleet-footed too. And you can choose to take some of them or not.

You have to decide what it is you want. You have to work out how to get what you want. Then it requires determination and a lot of hard work on your part to get where you really want to be.

An endless stream of opportunities:

Life really is an endless stream of opportunities you can choose to take or not. Look for ways to add value to the lives of others and you’ll soon see that there are opportunities there for the taking every single day.

By providing a service and adding value to the lives of others, there’s always money to be made.

Keep educating yourself and learning new skills and you’ll be able to add more value to people.

Add more value and you’ll get paid more.

Manage the money you make wisely and you can build your own wealth over time. It can be done and people do. So, why not you?

However, there are no shortcuts. Nothing ever happens by chance.

On very rare occasions you might get lucky and something will fall into your lap. However, mostly you’ll have to work very hard to get what you want. You have to go out and make things happen I’m afraid. That’s life, unfortunately.

Life and relationships:

It’s the same with relationships too.

Find someone who you’d be happy to have as a friend, even without intimacy, and you’ll have the basis for a healthy relationship.

Friendship and trust underpin a good relationship. As does commitment and a willingness to put in as much as you take out.

It all starts with really knowing what you want.

Know your ‘Why?’

If you know your ‘Why?’ then that will give you the motivation you need to keep going until you get to where you want to be.

If you want it badly enough, you’ll find a way to make it happen.

That said, you have to be positive. You have to be prepared to make a few mistakes. And you have to be prepared to learn from those mistakes.

Never fear mistakes:

On the road to success, a few mistakes are inevitable.

However, as learning opportunities, mistakes are truly invaluable. You’ll learn much more from any mistakes you make than you will from any successes you enjoy.

That said, never allow yourself to be driven too far off course. Keep your eye on the prize you want. And never accept an answer unless it’s the one that you really want.

Don’t be discouraged:

Above all, never, ever let people discourage you from pursuing your dreams and ambitions.

It doesn’t matter what other people think; the only thing that matters is what you think. It doesn’t matter whether they believe you can do it, as long you believe you can do it.

You can be whatever you want to be, as long as you really, really want whatever it is you think you want.

Everything is possible for those who never give up until they get to where they want to be. Life really is what you make it. I can tell you that from my own experience.

You must also remember this though, life’s not a rehearsal.

You only get to go around just once. Well, as far as we know.

So make it the best you can and make the most of being you. Remember this; You’re as good as anyone and better than most.

There’s a price to be paid:

You can have the life you want but not without hard work and commitment. There’s a price to be paid and that price will be paid in blood, sweat and tears. You don’t get anything for nothing and the price must always be paid first.

If you don’t want to pay the price then the life you lead will always fall short of your expectations. Sorry if that bothers you but it’s a fact.

Where to start?

So, what actions will you take now to start improving your life?

Start by making a list, set some goals and then get going.

It’s never too late to improve your situation. It’s never too late to make your life better. And it’s never too late to be all that you could be.
