Life doesn’t owe you anything! Yes, you read that right, life doesn’t owe you anything and it is not prepared to give you anything simply because you think you deserve it or because you believe that the world owes you.
If you intend to make something of your own life, you need to stop expecting things to just happen for you; you need to rise up to your feet and make your dreams come to pass.
The world is filled with many people who believe that life has been unfair to them because they think they have limited opportunities, talents and support. So they go about grumbling and grumpy and blaming everything and everybody for the mess of a life that they have. Grow up and take responsibility for yourself and your life.
Show me a man that lives with the inaccurate perception that life owes him and I will show you a man who is on a journey to poverty, lack and purposelessness. You already have everything that life has to offer you, roll up your sleeves and make the best of what you have and put in the work.
People with a sense of entitlement are the reason why the world is filled with so much hunger, hatred, anger and depression. The earth itself is suffering from the plunder of those who want to take and have nothing to give back to her. What is ruining the world is that we want to receive but do not feel the same urge to give out to the world around us. Stop sucking the world of its essence; you are here to make it a better place.
It is easier to just believe that life should offer you everything on a platter of gold; but that is the way of weaklings who cannot see beyond their noses and who are not looking to live forever; to leave your mark on the sands of time and build great big things that will outlive you, you need to drop the imaginary entitlement mentality and make something out of your own life.
You are born with the most important things you need. If you only pay quality attention, you will come to terms with this truth and you will see the limitless potentials that you carry with you every day. Stop feeling inadequate or incapable of a phenomenal life.
Stop expecting so much from people; it will only lead to a lot of disappointments, heartaches and bitterness. You need to know that people are so distracted looking for what they want and no one is there to give you what you want; go make your own life.
Be sure of this; everything you see was created by somebody and there is really nothing stopping you from achieving your dreams; you only need to believe in yourself, relieve yourself from the pressure of waiting for someone else and you will see that you are your best superman.
Stop waiting for everything to be perfect, stop waiting for all the stars to align or for the “right” time; there is nothing as such. Stop waiting till you have everything you need to build your dream or to go after your goals; use what you have for what you have is always enough!
