Your Life Can Be Better – The Decision Is Yours!

Majority of people pass through their lives without even trying to enjoy the life that is given to them. They blindly follow their daily routine and live automated lives just like robots. They either justify their situation or keep complaining about life but rarely do something to make them feel better. If you’re one of them, I must tell you that your life can be better, much better, but you have to do something about it.

If you want your situation to change, you must change first! So, are you ready to leave the old you and embrace the new you – the one who will be happier, fulfilled, joyous and what is even more important, the one who will live life on purpose?

Do You Enjoy Your Life?

Yesterday morning I was at the beach. It was very quiet, so I couldn’t help hearing everything without intentional listening. There was a couple with a little girl. It was their last day of 7 days holiday for this year. He was proudly informing everybody that they were leaving for the different county before lunch, so he could get to work at 7 pm that evening. Of course, everybody noticed how hard working he was. Before they left, he called somebody and asked for a small loan.

How sad was this – I thought. He worked hard the whole year, so he could spend a one-week holiday with his family. Then last day of their holiday he was looking for a loan, maybe for covering their holiday expenses. Did they even relax and enjoy their holiday?

Build your dream quoteThen I remembered that the majority of people live like this. They don’t pursue their dreams, they work for somebody else instead, they usually get one to two weeks holiday during summer and go away with their family if they can afford to spend their money without jeopardize their everyday living.

Do You Fit In?

We are conditioned to live our lives according to generally accepted rules – go to school, get a degree, get a job, get a loan, buy a house, get married, raise children, work hard and get retired. If you ticked all these boxes without getting any disease along the way, you’re considered to be living very good life, and now you are old enough to get sick and die.

To be accepted from the society, it’s more important to get formal education than self-education, to get a job than to follow your life calling, to get married than to truly love, to have children than to raise children, to suffer than to be happy, to work hard than to do what you love doing, to fit in than to enjoy your life.

Majority of people are not even aware that their life could be different. They stuck with the program they have carried on since their childhood and there are very rare individuals who dare to deviate from established patterns.

Get Out of Your Program

The stories about the world and how are we supposed to behave in it are passed around from generation to generation to us. These stories that we were told during our childhood form our deeply held beliefs.

These beliefs are filters through which we interpret our reality. So, there might be a great opportunity sitting just in front of us, but we may not see it because of what we perceive is completely different.what do I want

Given that we create our lives from these programs we have got from other people, no wonder that our lives differ from that what we want.

To get out of your program, you must be aware that you’re running a program. You cannot change that you’re not aware is there.

Why People Don’t Change

People do what they used to do. They feel comfortable as long as they do what they are familiar with. But if you ask them to get out of their comfort zone and do something unknown and unfamiliar to them, they will start to feel resistance and will make up different excuses to stay in their comfort zone. That’s the ego in action.

Ego is a complex construct in your mind, it is who you think you are, your self-image. It will resist anything new and unpredictable and try to keep you in the known and predictable, just to keep you safe. Ego is in charge of survival, not happiness. Happiness is your job. And yes, your life can be better!

So, if you want to change, you need to invest some effort. It doesn’t have to be a physical effort, but you will need some mental effort to point your mind in the right direction. Majority of people never get ready to get out of their comfort zone because it’s easier to keep complaining about life, blaming other people or justifying their unsatisfied situation than to take responsibility for their life.

The Power of Decision

If you want to change your life, decide what you want. Think about what you want, but when it comes to the final decision, make your decision from your heart, rather than the mind because mind understands but the heart knows.

At the moment you make a decision, things start to change! But it has to be a firm decision, without any doubt on your side. You have to believe in yourself and your ability to change your life for the better.

Last summer, after I spent 2 weeks holiday on the beach and came back to work, I realized that was not kind in the blue seaof life that I wanted any more. I decided that I would spend the entire next summer on the beach. At the time I didn’t know how, but I believed in the power of decision.

And here I am – on the beach! It’s been 6 weeks already and I will stay here as long as the weather allows me.

How is that possible? Well, I got out of my comfort zone.

I quit my job and decided to be my own boss. Then I came across Wealthy Affiliate – an online business education platform, where I learned new skills, built my own website and started writing a blog.

  2. That was an eye opening post Blanka. It was beautiful reading it. It’s very true that decision have power. As the saying goes “success is a decision away”. Decision can really change the course of an individual life and even a whole nation. Keep up the good work Blanka.

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I agree with you, never underestimate the power of decision. Every change starts with a clear and firm decision. The clarity of decision helps you to overcome excuses and take decisive action in the direction of your goal. Cheers!

  3. Hi,
    Great job on a very convincing article on how people either have the inability to change, or, the resistance to change, even if the change is a good one. I also agree with you, change can only occur when one makes a decision and commitment to change, and not look back. Thank you.

  4. This is an excellent post that has really made me think about the way I am living. Over the years I have broken free from the automation of my life only to find myself back in it through commitments.
    Now is the time to truly break free. Wealthy Affiliate sounds exciting. Can you tell me how much it will cost to join.
    With Grace and Gratitude

  7. Hello Blanka!
    I must agree about WA. I only have a couple of months with them and haven’t made any money yet, but I do know that my time will come as well…
    As for your post, I must say is very good and inspiring! Indeed the power of our brain is unbelievable. Sadly not everyone believes it or they don’t even wanna believe it, but I think that is their problem, not ours! Good job…

    1. Hi Selene,

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting on the post, I’m pleased you liked it. I wish you all the best and lot of success on your WA journey!

  8. Hi Blanka,
    good question. What do I want? Most of us live by some program we inherited from our parents. The hardest thing is to get out of the comfort zone even though it’s not comfortable in that area. Can we move the boundaries of our mind? We can but we have to work on it. I like your blog about personal development, examples and tips are great. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Hi Blanka, that is just so wonderful that you have spent the summer on the beach like you planned to do. You are living proof that if you make a firm decision then anything is possible.

    I love all your posts as they always seem to give me some education that I need right at that particular moment. I guess that’s not even bizarre to somebody who understands the law of attraction like you do, it makes absolute sense that everything comes to us because we have attracted it.

    The part about the ego causing us to live like robots really struck me as I have never thought about it like that before and wow it makes absolute sense. We are just a collection of belief systems and conditioned patterns, and pretty much everybody I know lives like that. I’m glad that I am starting to see the light 🙂

    1. Hi Stefanie,

      Thanks for your comment. I really believe in the law of attraction. We attract what we believe. Once we become aware of our belief systems and conditioned patterns, we are free to change them and to attract what we really want.
