Here’s a nasty little secret for you – no one is coming to save you. Here’s another one – you’re never going to win the lottery. Yep, if you want that prince on the white horse to come save you, you’re going to be waiting until you’re in the grave. No one is coming. You have to be your own savior.
You know what the worst part of this is? You’re going to have to do the dirty work. That lottery ticket isn’t going to be the “one”, by the way this is especially true if you don’t even buy a lottery ticket, but sometimes fantasize about what you would do if you won. (This is me…I actually do this occasionally). See, we all are looking for a savior.
The problem is that none of us wants to do the work it takes to change our lives. Most of us want to magically wake up in the morning and all the hard work is done, and we’re suddenly living our dream life. That would be great. But it’s not going to happen.
So, what do we do? One of the first things to do is to admit this to yourself. Admit that you’re going to have to do the work. Admit that you are worth it…this is the most important part. You need to feel that you are worth all the hard work. That the life you’ve dreamed of for so long is what you’re worthy of. And then, you need to make a plan, set some goals, and start the work. The only way to fulfill your dreams is to do the work. Be your own savior.
