We are bombarded with difficult problems and questions as we go through life. Most of the time, we are not sure how to deal with them right away. There are times that we just go with the flow and figure out the answers later on. While we all have our own journeys, we should have a common objective in life which is to think rationally as much as we can.
Our fundamental beliefs greatly affect our reasoning. That’s why good parenting is a vital part of an individual’s personality. Many adults make bad decisions and develop bad attitude because they were not well-guided when they were young. I still believe that a well-raised individual is less likely to cause problems. And to those who experienced bad parenting and still fought through life despite hardships, you have my utmost respect. You are role models of the society.
To those who are still struggling, maybe it’s not too late. Maybe you are already in your 40s and still aren’t sure of what to do with your life. Stop for a moment and ask yourself these questions:
- What do you really want to do in life?
- What are you willing to sacrifice to achieve your goals?
- What are the things that you must do that you keep making excuses not to do them?
- Where do you constantly fail?
- What are the usual reasons why you can’t move forward?
These all boil down to thinking rationally and not being a victim of delusion. It’s not easy, and will never be. Seek help from family and friends, but of course, you must also help yourself. While prayers are powerful, good things will not happen to you if you don’t work for it. Remember, life is too short to waste. You only live once so fix your life and chase those dreams!
