The greatest motivation

The most motivational statement comes down to three words: “You’re gonna die.”

You get one life and one chance to make yourself happy. Instead of sitting and complaining about not pursuing the things you want in life, do something about it.

The life you want

No matter your age, you have the time to make yourself happy:
  • If you’re in your early 20s, most likely you don't have major life commitments, so this is the time to take the chance on the life you want: travel, experiment with your talents, start networking.
  • If you’re in your 40s, 50s, 60s, or older, instead of retiring and taking up golf, maybe it’s time to triple down and really focus on what you want. 

Stop making excuses

There’s this tendency people have to pass over opportunities when they think they can just “come back to it later.” People are living their lives like they have unlimited time. 

The biggest poison we encounter as humans is regret, so stop making excuses and start making yourself happy.

This will allow you to politely shut down a person's request without brutally closing the door entirely.

It works especially well for social obligations.

“No, Thank You”

If and when you don’t want to do something, reply with a simple, “No, thank you.

Sometimes, trying to offer an explanation of your refusal will open the door for arguments and maybe even for a future similar invitation. By offering this answer, you’ve made it clear that you’re not interested.

Work hard, live longer

One of the biggest truths you will ever come to realize is that hard work, ambition and targets give actual meaning to your life. 

Furthermore, once you have given a purpose to your work, you will most certainly see that motivation goes a long way into making someone's life more interesting to live.

There is a limit to happiness

Whoever believes that happiness knows no bound is in for a big surprise: happiness, like everything in this world, knows limits and very often we perceive this fact maybe just a bit too harsh. 

In order to enjoy life and to get to feel happy, as much as it is possible, one should first be able to deal with difficult situations. Therefore, maturity tends to be seen as the key to ensuring a satisfactory life.
