When we go to school we get told to get an education and get a 9-5 job, when we get that job, often we come home, watch TV, maybe meet up with family or friends, but how much time do we actually spend investing in ourself, in nourishing our brain and in growing us?
When you think how short life is, does it make you reflect on your life, on what you have learnt? On how you are growing yourself? On how much of yourself you are challenging, growing, and developing? I did not know to think this way, but now I know I should have thought about this years ago. If I had known about personal and professional development when younger, I don’t think I would not have been depressed like I was, because my brain would have been nourished, nurtured, and I would have been able to see me in a different light. However, my environment was no good for me, but now I have a choice about every aspect of my life and if you have not done so already, I urge you to invest in yourself, with books, training courses, seminars, and more, because you are valuable and your life is worth more than another episode of your favourite soap opera or TV show – that is not going to grow or challenge you, you are worth more that that. So as we progress through 2018, I want you to ask yourself, how much do I value my time?
People like to think that other people are what makes up their life, their decisions and their fate – but it’s not, you are totally responsible for your own life, not God, not your parents, not your spouse and not your family – just you and it’s your choice how you lead your life! So what does that mean for you in 2018? It means your success it up to you. Just like mine is up to me, and I am going to do everything in my power to ensure I become successful in all aspects of my life. I will work hard, smart, and with care and focus. There are no guarantees of success in life, but trying is a success in and of itself, as most people won’t even give it a go or bother, but I intend to give it my best shot and turn my life around. What goals, ambitions and dreams, have you set yourself for 2018 and how do you plan to achieve them?
This video is a live stream I did on my other channel – my Asexualise My Asexual Life channel about asexuality (but this particular video talks about having a choice in your life which is very relevant to this post). Asexuality is a sexual orientation that is the lack of sexual attraction, for me, I am a heteroromantic asexual – meaning I am attracted to guys romantically, but I never get the urge to have sex with them and I am cool with that. And in case you were wondering, yes I have had sex before and my ex was good at it, but no, I would rather never have again since I discovered my sexual orientation and know there are others like me. In fact, I hold in person asexual meet-ups in my city, which is awesome.
Happy New Year and stay positive!
