Key Points

1. Taking Time Away is Not the End

Often times in life, we need to separate ourselves from our current situations.

Whether it is a job, a relationship, or even just a physical location that it tying you down, everyone will have a point in their life where they need to “escape” to uncover more about themselves to truly become their best selves.

But we are scared.

We are afraid that it will result in catastrophic failure if things don’t pan out.

But the truth is, even if we don’t achieve the goals we had set, the lessons you learn while away will equip you to achieve more when you come back to your old life.

If you take a sabbatical from work to travel, you will return more grounded, more focused, and more passionate, and employers know this.

If you take some time away from a relationship to focus on your own personal growth, you will come back as a more present, conscious, and compassionate lover, and most women know this.

Don’t be afraid to take time away from the good so that you can return to the great.

2. Be Authentic

Life is short, so why would you waste it being anyone other than who you are.

Almost all of us live our lives behind a mask. We perform on the stage of life to impress people and show them that we are like everyone else.

But the hard truth is, the world doesn’t need more cookie cutter people.

It needs more people who are fearlessly embracing their authentic selves, people who are pursuing a life of excellence and uniqueness.

Forget about being like everyone else.

The world has plenty of copycats. Be yourself, be authentic, and allow the universe to use that for greatness.

3. The Universe Will not Hand You Anything

So many of us believe in the “Secret” that if we just write down our goals and put them out to the universe that we will achieve every dream that we have, but the truth is much more different.

The universe will conspire with you to help you achieve your goals, but you must put in the work.

You have to grind and hustle and sweat and bleed.

There is no other way to achieve success.

Put your goals out to the universe and then work your butt off to achieve them.

Then and only then will the universe open up to help you.

4. Trust Yourself 

One of the hardest things in life is to trust yourself, to believe in yourself, and to stick to your values even when the rest of the world steers you in another direction.

But if you want to succeed and live the most fulfilling life possible, then you must learn to trust yourself.

Trust your gut, trust your intuition, trust yourself.

If you feel called to do something, then do it, no matter what other people say.

And remember, you can fail doing something that you don’t like so go ahead and take a chance on something you love.

5. Challenges are An Opportunity for Growth 

So many people view challenges as a bad thing.

They think that challenging situations are a curse.

But the thing is, challenges are an opportunity.

They are an opportunity for you to grow into your strongest self, to prove what you are made of, and to overcome obstacles that others deem as impossible.

Never view challenges as a negative thing.

They are what makes this life worth living and what separates the boys from the men.
