I’ve woken up very hungry this morning. Not for food (okay, food as well) but for success. I’ve always desired to be successful at whatever I do and when it comes to working, I believe I have a strong work ethic.
However lately for around the past 6 months I have been unsettled and unsure of what’s to come. Even now, I have received a bit of news to provide clarity over an area of my life, but that in itself brings forth its own challenges.
I think there are two types of people in the world. Ones who are obsessed with being completely an utterly in control, need to have a plan for every element of their lives and others who seem to have a carpe diem mentality, more of a yolo (you only live once), get up and go, no two days are the same type people. I think 6 months ago I was definitely more like the first type of person, but now due to many different factors I’m gearing more towards being the second type of person.
What I am trying to say is life is too short to be anything less than happy. I don’t want to go to work just for the sake of it. I want to love my job so much so that it doesn’t feel like work, and truthfully I think that will only happen for me when I stop being a type 1 kind of person. I need to take more risks, be more fearless. If you don’t try, you will never know.
I’m in a position at the moment where I may have to leave my current job role due to relocation and I’m thinking this is the perfect time for a fresh start. The type 1 person in me is shit scared worried about breaking my current routine, what I’m used to, stepping out of my comfort zone. But the type 2 person in me is telling me to go for it full throttle. Take this time and opportunity to figure out what I truly love.
No matter what we feel we are afraid to do, sometimes we need to accept challenges and know we are good enough. Believe in yourself and your capabilities. Confidence will come in time and it doesn’t matter what society says you ‘should’ be like. Be you. Because you are the best version of you. Embrace change and welcome opportunities.
