Why is my life so bad right now?

Why is my life so bad right now? Have you ever asked yourself that question dear reader? Perhaps you feel you deserve something better from life? Your life’s not all you’d like it to be, possibly?

Does the headline question resonate with you? 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?

If you feel this way then you’re not alone, that much is certain. Plenty of people feel this way. 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? 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, if your life sucks then there is 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 is still what you choose to make it.

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

Life is an endless stream of opportunities you can choose to take or not. For the eagle-eyed and fleet-footed, opportunities are 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 always create your own wealth over time. It can be done and people do. 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.

It’s the same with relationships too. Find someone who you’d be happy to have as a friend, even without sex, and you 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. 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.

On the road to success, a few mistakes are inevitable. However as learning opportunities, mistakes are invaluable. You’ll learn much more from any mistakes you make than you will from any successes you enjoy.

However, 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 want.

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

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 go. Life really is what you make it.

You must also remember this though, life’s not a rehearsal. You only get to go round once. So make it the best you can and make the most of being you. You’re as good as anyone and better than most.

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 never get anything for nothing and the price must 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.

So, what actions will you take now to start improving your life? Make a list and get going. It’s never too late to improve your situation. It’s never too late to make life better.
