Watch this:

If you can relate to Raymond, perhaps this will give you some motivation.

Most of us are walking around in a haze.

I'm still trying to shake it off.

My problem is that I regularly put a gun to my own head, metaphorically speaking. And when I don't have answers, it hurts.

But I always try stuff.

And things are starting to stick.

We're all trying to find something and move forward.

This is how you start:

👉 Commit to evolving
👉 Understand who you are
👉 Accept who you are

and then:

🎬 Do (don't think)

I met Arnold Schwarzenegger several years ago at a book signing.

I have always been fascinated by his ability to so clearly visualise and set personal goals, and his complete dedication to achieving them.

In the recently released Netflix documentary (recommended), Arnold, the [take] action hero emphasises how taking action is the only route to success of any kind.

For me, overthinking is absolutely the primary reason I delay taking action.

When I do take action, I'm on my game. But I could get more done if I thought less about doing it.

Every key decision is a trust fall. You will catch yourself.

➡️ Keep moving forward

Regardless of what life throws at you, moving past the issues and making progress is the only way to reach your goals.

Keep trying stuff, and you will find something that you like and that gives you purpose.

Purpose is the shell that builds the resilience we need to get through the hard times 🪖

So, what do you want to be?
