Oh, crap, I’m in a preaching mode…
The Wake-Up Call philosophy is about re-evaluation, about looking at yourself and asking yourself where you are in your life and where you would want to be.
It’s good to have a regular wake-up call. It’s nice to smell the coffee. It’s educating to read the writing on the wall. To pinch yourself once in a while. Hard.
I think life should be under constant evaluation, with out over-analyzing everything. Re-evaluate yourself using your gut and your heart and not your mind. This is the best way to get the good answers on where and who you are in your life right now.
Stopping and thinking things over and being able to question decisions and actions without judging yourself too hard is incredibly important to achieving some kind of happiness.
And then we get into the never-ending question about what happiness really is and then you think you’re stuck right? Wrong. There’s no general term of what being happy is. Only you can know what happiness means to you and the only way to figure it out is to stop and ask yourself those questions:
Am I where I want to be?
Do I live the life I want to have?
Am I doing the things I dreamt of doing?
And if you’re saying NO to any one of the questions above you need to ask yourself why and you need to ask yourself how you can say YES.
Then you do what it takes. NO excuses. Just do it. Do it.
