You know what hurts? No, not love. An unfulfilled dream does. It lingers behind your wide awake eyes at night blaming you for not working hard enough. The good news is that dreams can be revived, renewed, or completely altered. Looking profoundly within is the only way to find something that you are really passionate about and you want to do for the rest of your life. That not an easy task, of course, yet, inevitable. Once a friend told me something that I will never forget: do what you need to do and eventually, you will love what you are doing.
This sentence made me pause and look from afar at everything I am currently working on in my life. Am I doing what I need to be doing, or am I doing what I love? The ugly truth is that they are two different things, but this truth should be faced be resolved for good. You need to workout but you love food, you need to work hard, but you love your nothing box, and you need to be more caring and a giver but you love yourself more than other. And the worst of them all, you care and give too much because you hate yourself for not being good enough.
Psychologists say that in order for a human to implement a habit and be hard for him to let go of, he has to do it for 21 consecutive days. If you are getting me right, the trick is to implement good habits into your character and eventually they will be the things that you love and you will be unable to let go of. Your goals do not care how you feel, look, or lack. They exist and they need to be achieved. Implement hard-work, power walks, and be consistent.
