Key Points

1. You Are Enough

So often in life, we get caught up trying to achieve all of these external goals. We base our value off of the size of our house, the top speed of our car, the looks of our girlfriend or the number of zeros in our bank account without realizing that our true value is not based off of any of these external factors.

You are enough as you are, your value is internal and not based off of anything you do or achieve, your resolutions to be someone different don’t work because you base your worth off of whether or not they are achieved and you leave yourself more frustrated than you began.

2. Take Time Alone

Another great issue in our society is the lack of solitude in our lives. We are so over connected on a daily basis that it is often difficult to sit by ourselves and just think. To appreciate the world that we have the privilege of living in, to appreciate the fact that we get to wake up every morning and live this amazing adventure called life.

We often get so caught up in creating a life that we forget to live, to sit, to enjoy and to smile.

So take some time by yourself. Go for a hike, meditate, spend a week in the mountains alone, disconnect from your phone and just enjoy your life, you will be grateful that you did.

3. You Often Create Difficult Situations for Yourself to Remove Previous Guilt 

In our lives, we are often the main villain of our story. We unconsciously create lives that are harder and more difficult than necessary to overcompensate for some sort of past trauma.

Take some time and really think about the conditions of your life and whether or not they are truly serving you or if they were created by your subconscious to make up for something you lacked in the past.
