The last twelve months have been a major reality check for me – as in, my perception of reality.
When I began writing The Cult of Dissatisfaction, and even all the way up until the start of 2017, my perception of my life was pretty negative. I had a physical break down in October 2016, although not many people would have noticed – just my husband, because I collapsed every evening and couldn’t do anything but sleep on weekends.
It was the process of writing The Cult of Dissatisfaction, and realising that so much of my own negative mindset was contributing to my situation – and I was in control of changing it. What I really wanted was a little more eagerness and joy. I wanted more laughter. I wanted more “high-fives”, more excited greetings with friends and admirers.
I had to teach myself, or remind myself, that all is well. Actually, life is pretty good. I had to remember that I will never have everything done, because there’s always more work and more opportunities. Even when I achieve everything I want now, by then there will be more that I want! I can’t be forever dissatisfied because I don’t have what I want – because I will always be wanting more. So I need to be satisfied with how far I’ve come, and look forward to more that will come!
Just like me; you are on the right track. You are right on schedule. Everything is unfolding perfectly. All is really well. Start having fun. You are the right person; this is the right time. You, like me, have done the hard work; you’ve paid your dues, you’re thinking the right thoughts, you’re doing the right things, and you are exactly where you’re supposed to be.
You and I are poised for the happiest times in our lives.
So what if you don’t have it all yet? It’s coming. You’re gunna get what you want, and you’ll love it when you do. Then you’ll forget that there was ever a time when you didn’t have it, or that you felt dissatisfied. Life is so much fun, and full of opportunity and excitement.
That’s your reality check – now go out and chase your dreams!
