This post is for people who have been actively improving their lives so far, a bit of motivation you know? My reasoning? Only they will have the capability to understand.
But you can read it too, granted that you're doing something with your life and constantly improving.
Have you been doing things that benefit you in your life at the moment? You know, things such as exercising, going out with mates, meeting girls and having fun? If you have then I *salute* you, if not then you got work to do.
We've all been there. You know what I mean, that "place" (or feeling) where there was absolute hopelessness. Where we didn't know what to do and wondered where it all went wrong and why nothing went as we imagined our life to be like. Then, something happened.
The pain threshold (I'll talk about this next time) was far too much. This time, you actually started to stop feeling sorry for yourself and genuinely did something to change your life for the better. As time went on, you gradually moved yourself away from that rut and kept going while making life your bitch. Times were changing.
Now you're better than you were those many moons ago yet there is still work to do, a lot more.
Reflecting or knowing where you've been and the difficulties that were had is a good thing to do. Many don't do this I feel and I think it's part of the whole process to improving oneself. Let me illustrate;
- Reflecting keeps you humble where you don't lose sight of why you're doing what you're doing in the first place. Many guys have strayed, don't let that be you.
- Secondly, it reminds you of others who chose not to change their life for the better. Harsh I know, but this isn't about them - it's about YOU.
- Lastly, it keeps you motivated. It's, in my opinion, the unintended (or intended?) product of the two previous points. Motivation itself isn't going to produce results but results produce the motivation.
