“Life’s a ____.” Insert the expletive that many associate with the statement. We know life is hard. Raising a family is hard. Going after your dreams is hard. But you’re doing a great job at it! Seriously! You’re honestly doing much better than you think. Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it. Just ask yourself these eight questions.
1. Are you reading this article?
If so, you have a valuable tool at your disposal. The power of the Internet is limitless. You can learn about anything you desire, connect with old friends, explore job opportunities, search for support communities, and network with people all around the world. Not to mention that your vision is in tact too.
2. Did you eat something today?
One out of eight people in the world are suffering from hunger, so be thankful that you’re not one of them.
3. Do you hate your job?
At least you have one unlike the 11,500,000 people who are currently unemployed in the United States. If you have dreams of self-employment (and enough savings to support yourself), I’m sure an unemployed person would be happy to trade places with you so that you can pursue your passion.
4. Did you just scroll down to read this?
I don’t know about you, but I’m glad I have fingers and extremities like hands and fingers to do things with, unlike the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have some type of amputation.
5. Did you fail at something recently?
Failure is the most effective teacher you’ll ever meet, so be happy you learned a lesson. Stop looking at failure as a bad thing and see it as a learning opportunity. Improve yourself in some way every time you fail and eventually, you will become so developed that the only option left is success.
