Rise Above Fear Of Growing Up

As we grow up we slowly realise that not everyone has time for parties.

Truth can be devastating for those party maniacs. Suddenly they have to stop these activities and become grown up.

In these situations it is possible to lose will and feel lonely and lost in all those commitments that await us.

Let’s be clear, you will still see different events, family gatherings and kid birthdays. However, this is often not enough for someone who didn’t miss one weekend of parties.

Once you grow up you might feel completely lonely in a room full of people.

In this period your mind and spirit don’t accept it’s new surroundings. You are faced with some sort of inner struggle. You struggle to maintain life you once had.

Keep in mind that nothing lasts forever.

It is important to recognize these feelings because that is the first step to accept that you are a grown up now.

Work on your routines and activities, this will help you reduce pressure you have with growing up. You can still do things you like just a little adjusted.

Relax with your friends with couple of drinks every now and then. This can be usefull and satisfying.

You want to rise above you fear of growing up? Just be who you are. Do everything your way. Don’t lose identity in this chaos called life.

Learn to cope with pressure and practice patience.

Success And Happiness Have No End

It is unfortunate that modern society describes itself through achievements.

This lower value of people who are not as successful and happy as others. Do not chase success instead devote yourself to something greater than us.

Let success be byproduct of this devotion.

Do not aim success. The more you make it a target the more you are going to miss it. Success, as happines cannot be found, it must be created.

Happiness is created as consequence of personal devotion to reason higher than you can imagine.

Success and happiness will only find you if  you don’t think about them and keep doing what you do best.

Life Is Not What Happens It Is How You React To What Is Happening

Attitude is much more important than facts, history, education, money, circumstances, failure and success.

If it far more important what you think, speak or do. Rather than how you look or your skill levels. Attitude is what builds or destroys everything around us.

Our attitude defines our feelings, beliefs and very often our behavior. Our attitude can be positive or negative, in addition it is sometimes neutral.

Whatever it may be, attitude has very important place in our lives. In addition this life can, truth be told, be very cruel. Different events and situations will happen whether we like it or not.

Some people have trouble accepting reality, especially if it is painfull. In these situations people tend to blame circumstances in which they are found.

For them this circumstance and its outcome are one and the same. They bring rash decisions under the wave of emotions and most likely regret them afterwards.

For other people this way of dealing with reality is not acceptable. They in spite of bad situations find way to success. Why?

Because they are aware that no matter the situation they always have a choice. They choose their attitude and how they perceive things. Every day.

These positive people also know they can choose how to react to their past and all that has happened to them. They control their emotions and successfully overcome any obstacles in their way.

Most important thing is to know that you are responsible for your life.

You are the one responsible. You may not prevent bad things from happening, but you are responsible for your attitude when they do happen.

Do not allow for these things to cast a shadow on your life and days. Bad things always happen, but your reaction is what will define your character and quality of your life.

Sometimes it is hard to find solution to any given situation but here are some of the advices I have prepaired for you to help.

Every problem brings opportunity to improve something that we miss. External factors only give strenght to that problem, more often those problems are in us.

Ask For Advice

Often we are not aware how many people went through the same situation.

Sometimes their situations were bigger and more complex. Don’t shy from asking for advice, sometimes it is much easier to percieve the problem when there is someone to help you.

Think About Solution

Seek multiple ways to solve the problem, simplest solution is not always the best one. Always have a backup plan on how to solve the problem.

Little problems in everyday life become big if you think the wrong way.

Think about what is the worse thing that can come out of the problem. Are your fears justified, are they real?

Often in these situations we don’t see solution because our fears paralyze us in taking action. This only makes it harder for you to get out of it.

How to rise above all of these things?
