Do you ever feel like you are going around in circles? Living your day to day life but nothing is progressing. You have loads of decisions to make but don’t know which road to take. It’s like you are waiting for the next big thing to happen in your life. Maybe you don’t have to wait, the power is already in your hands to change your reality.
Nothing changes, if nothing changes
You can be either of these types of people; One who lets life happen to them or one who takes control and pursues their goals and desires. There’s no point sitting around complaining about things that aren’t going in your favor. What can you do to help yourself right in this present moment?
Whatever it is that you need to make a decision on, give yourself a deadline to finalize it.

Calculate your worst case scenario
Back when I was studying Business Management at University, we had a business strategy class. One of the concepts I remember in this class was about the best and worst-case scenarios. If you plan for your worst-case scenario, it’s not going to be all that bad! This is the same with your life. I believe this actually helps with maintaining a level of happiness and contentment. Most likely, our brain’s worst-case scenario is so unlikely to happen that it never gets that bad in reality. Get nervous and anxious before an interview? More often than not, it goes much better than you envisioned, right?!
Don’t waste your youth
As the saying goes, the youth is wasted on the young. Don’t be that person that looks back with regret when they are too old to act upon it. Do the things that interest and intrigue you now. Realistically, you can always go back from a decision that you made or fix something that didn’t go as planned, but you can’t turn back time once you are older.
