My past few blogs have focused on the way we treat others around us, with the goal on being happier ourselves. However, it’d be ego-orientated to believe that making others happy is the one key to personal wellbeing. It’s surprising, really, how one’s mood can change in such a short frame of time. Over the past few weeks, a number of people have noted how they have ‘no motivation’, or that they simply feel lethargic. I can’t argue, and truth be told, neither can you. We’ve all had this feeling of lethargy at some point. In my eyes, it’s a lack of productivity in our day to day lives. I’ve said it once before, and I want to reiterate my point. We are all in the same situation in life, we all have the chance to be who we want to be. Note the specific language choice of that last sentence – WHO, not WHAT. Really, success isn’t deemed on how others around you perceive or who you’ve become. Success is deemed on that gut feeling you get when you look in the mirror every morning, every afternoon, every time you see yourself in a shop window. Do it now, if you can. Are you who you want to be? Are you where you want to be? If you aren’t feeling that warmth that those who are content are getting, make a change. You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets. You are the same as every individual out there, so go and do what you want to do. There’s one hurdle you’ll have to face to get there – That person staring right back at you in the mirror.

My goal is to become who I want to be. I don’t want to divulge that information publicly, and neither should you. But I’ve taken the first step up the ladder… Have you?
Step 4 – Take that first step
*I’ll let you know how this goes when I make my second step (reaction to previous blog, below)
Reaction to step 3 – Money doesn’t matter
In a small Tesco Express in Plymouth – waiting to pay for 3 crates of alcohol for a BBQ.
Me: “Ah, how should we sort this guys, it’s £24 isn’t it”
Everyone: “Ah, so that’s… £6 each is it?”
Friend: “I’ll get this guys, don’t worry about it…”
Reaction (including myself): affection, appreciation.
Reaction whilst he’s at the counter: “XXX’s such a good guy isn’t he…”
Simple, yes, yes he is…
*Step 3 shows mileage, I hope it has for you too…
