We all have our own desires and needs, but if we don’t discover what we want from ourselves and what we stand for, we’ll never know what they are and will only end up living passively and unfulfilled.
Why are you doing what you’re doing? Is it something that you want to do?
And if you haven’t known clearly what exactly you desire, what do you do?
Here’s a simple but powerful way to figure that out. It works for not only myself but also many of my friends as well as students. Hopefully this can be helpful for you too.
You see, we are born in a collective world where there’s a certain path that can make us succeed in life.
Go to school, get good grades, complete a college degree, find a job that pays nicely… As if life can only become successful if we follow it.
The belief is deeply inserted into your mind since we were kids, from parents in family, teachers in school, people in society.
When looking at what majority people are doing – following it. So we bought into the notion that it’s something that we should do too.
For me, the most painful part is not that we’ve followed the path, it’s that we’ve given up listening to our true desire from the deep heart.
It’s like we chose to throw our life away and live what the society told us to.
Well, it’s not too late to change. And here’s the powerful solution that could be the game-changer in your life. Utilize your pain.
Imagine that someone is pointing a gun on your forehead and asking you to eat dirt otherwise you’ll be shot.
How do you feel? Anger, depression, sadness, fear, disgust…
Why? Because you care deeply about having freedom and autonomy to decide what you want to do.
This is what the negative emotion response caused by pain tells you.
When people ask me how I figure out starting an online business of my own is right for me, I share with them my most painful experience and how it helped me clarify what’s really important for me.
For me, losing time being with people that I love the most because of a long working hours job is the most devastating sacrifice I’ve ever made.
And online business provides the most time flexibility so it’s the best decision for you.
Maybe it’s for you too. Maybe it’s not. Keypoint being – pay extremely attention to how you feel and discover what matters to you the most.
Pain is the clearest guidance to your desire. If you really want to become the kind of person who’s strong, powerful, and unstoppable of creating something greater in your life, this is the stepping stone.
Choose the path, live with no regret
