Recycled Post: Be Active and Achieve

on January 25, 2016

This post comes from January 2013, but I think it’s something important to always focus on. Lent is coming soon, and why not reflect on how you can go above and beyond your comfort zone to achieve your goals and desires?

“Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action” – Benjamin Disraeli

Get up and get moving! Be active, achieve things, experience things. Follow your dreams and desires, speak up, engage in conversation, engage yourself. Be active in your life. You may bump into some difficult moments, but like Benjamin states, happiness is achieved if you go and act.

Example – you want to gain friendship, so instead of wondering when it will come to you, go out, engage in small talk, find similar interests, and be bold to start a friendship and to hang out sometime.

Example 2 – you wish you had more vacation time from work, but nothing has come up. Finally you find the courage to ask your supervisor, and as easy as 1, 2, 3 you get an increase in vacation on your next paycheck.

Example 3 – you have a dream to make some homemade gifts and sell them at your local market, but are afraid no one will like them or afraid the business aspects are just to scary. But you go ahead, work hard at your work, and show it to some friends. Soon enough you are selling your gifts and excited for more things to come.

So go do what you love, be courageous in your decisions and soon enough happiness will follow.
