I live in a country which follows the British education system. We got GCE Advance Level instead of High school in American system. (It is pretty much the same thing)
Few years ago when I was doing AL (Advance Level), I was so content. Although I went through the same shit I’m going through now I handled it well. I wasn’t overthinking and ruining everything. I was confident with what I did. I was confident with my life.
Back then I was so concerned with my studies and getting good grades. So I was working hard towards a goal.
I had a purpose.
Human beings are built to work towards a goal. Have a life with purpose. Without purpose we lose our confidence. If you lose confidence, it initiates a cascade of reactions which eventually end up with a miserable life.
Now once I entered med school somehow on the way I lost purpose. I was just living.
And now it is time for me to get myself back into the game. 😀
The trick I am using is very simple.
Find yourself a purpose and think of the positive outcomes of it. And work your ass off for it. The only rule of your purpose is that it should be short and sweet. It shouldn’t be complicated.
My purpose: Become a True leader
A leader is charismatic. He knows how to talk to other people and suddenly everyone likes him.
A leader knows how to deal with tough times and choose accurate decisions. He will take the lead and work out solutions.
A leader does not have regrets. He will do whatever it is at the moment feels right and then not think twice about it later.
A leader does not procrastinate. He is well organized.
Leaders are people who do their work as well have a good social life.
I will be the person that everybody else want to be.
Actually It is not something hard to do. If you put your mind to it and have enthusiasm towards it that’s all it takes.
Happy people have two things in common. They know exactly what they want and they feel they’re moving toward getting it. That’s what makes life feel good: when it has direction, when you are heading straight for what you love.
