We often fantasize about the life we wished we had, meanwhile we overlook many of the great parts of our current life. We have to learn to appreciate the good parts of our life now before we can appreciate anything that the future may hold.
Instead of trying to imagine what you’d like to do with your life, take account of the things you currently enjoy doing. What are the things in your life that are most important to you night now?
We tend to think of things we’ve never done before as our ideal life. We romanticize them. But this is because we know almost nothing about them. Focus on what you already know — what you are already familiar with and find a way to do more of it.
To whatever extent you can choose your lifestyle, choose it. You know what’s important to you, you know what is a good use of your time. Do whatever you can in your power to devote your time to those things.
What you choose has already chosen you, don’t ignore its call. Don’t let fear of failure, fear of success, or the fear of what others will think, stop you from living the life you have been called to live.
