What to do if you have nothing?

What to do if you have nothing?

I've got your attention on this and you will be rewarded with some wisdom. Ok, what we have today is some people say they can't do stuff because they don't have enough time, they don't have enough knowledge, not enough self-confidence, no enough money. Well, what we say is what we get. Even if it's a question, it's actually your goal.

How often do you see successful people talk about their failures? You think they had none? Or you think they are better than you? Have more luck or more skills, rich parents?

BS. That's a block you build in front of you as an excuse not to go forward.

You know why, cause if you just jump on Wikipedia and search info about some successful people who you think are just lucky enough, you'll see their background. They were hated, pushed away, no parents or they were beaten by those. No money, no perspective, trouble. And why don't they talk about it?

Simply because when a person ends up in all of the lives challenges he has options. Try to solve problems or build a better future. And those are not the same.

The first goal will not get you anywhere, cause solving problems brings you more problems. "And so that you are so good at it, here are some more," life thinks.

But if you instead focus on the best life you want, you are on your way. That could only be possible if it's your goal.

How to know what your goal is? You can say: "I know, be rich, happy, healthy, like that guy on Ferrari, or a wife of that guy on Ferrari." That's not your goal, that's a basic idea promoted by the society. If you follow it, without truly believing in it - that's not your goal, so you won't achieve it. Your goal would be following what others do.

It's an easy start. Copy and you are good to go. It doesn't work.

To be truly successful in life means doing something that makes you feel great, happy and proud. To have some emotional rise all the time. And for that, you need to dig deeper with you and hear your call. Everyone has it. It's just hard to hear it because of all the problems and info around. Everything takes your attention away. TV, Phone, the internet, news, friends, family, school, work, children and we forgot to buy a new freaking lamp... It's a never ending story.

Doing something all the time is not bad, but when you don't have the answer WHY are you doing this? And WHAT will it give to you? There could be no success.

Now answering our main question: What to do when you have nothing? That's BS as well. You are alive and you have all the power in the world to do anything. You can read if you are here. That's great. You have eyes and you can see what's going on around. You have feelings and a mind because you have that question. You got everything you need to be successful.

Only one thing you should do - change the question. How do I get rich and why do I need this. How to find my true love? And do I want it? Can doing that make me happy?

The right questions are the key to everything. Wrong questions help you stay in the swamp of a daily routine.

Get out of there, listen to yourself, ask the right questions and let's start a better life right now!

"To be truly successful in life means doing something that makes you feel great, happy and proud" I think this is key to finding success. It may take time, but patience can and many times does pay off, both literally and rhetorically speaking.

That´s it! "If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there". So, ask the right questions to yourself and go for it :-)
