You only get one life to live, and going through the motions day in and day out is not a great way to live it. Here are five warning signs that you just exist in life.
1. You let negative people hold you back.
When we're excited about a big decision or change, we naturally want to tell someone. Negative people will point out the reasons why what you want to do is impossible. They will feed into the things inside you that are holding you back. If you want to live, and not exist, you have to cut negative people out of your life.
2. You believe self-limiting beliefs.
Whether it's doubt, fear, or negative thoughts about ourselves, we struggle with self-limiting beliefs. If you want to truly live, it starts with beating the thoughts that are holding you back. It's time to conquer whatever self-limiting beliefs you've been listening to. What we believe in our minds affects the actions we take. Realise that you're powerful, and can do anything.
3. You have more regret than hope.
When you think about your life, do you have hope? When we let regret win and don't do anything about our dreams, it's easy to lose hope. You only get one life to live; the worst way to live your life is with unfilled dreams and never ending regret. Never let hope die in your mind and heart.
4. You don't take action on your dreams.
Do you dream about an amazing life or do you take the actions it requires to make those dreams a reality? I'm not sitting here telling you it will be easy, but I'm telling you that it's possible. Too many of us are content to let our dreams be enough for us. What's waiting for you is so much greater than the dreams.
5. You choose "stuff" over experiences.
At the end of your life you're not going to remember all the stuff you accumulated; you'll remember all of your incredible experiences. There's nothing wrong with having nice things as long as they don't replace your desire to live.
If any of these things have held you back, let today be the day you scream, enough! It starts with those dreams and a plan, and then taking action on that plan. Start truly living today.
