Younger self: Think positive, they say. What does that even mean?
Sure you can think positive when you have it all. Some people are fortunate. They just have the circumstances to succeed in life. Or they’re luckily born with the right mindset.
Me today: So you think it’s a matter of luck?
Younger self: Isn’t it?
Me today: No. It’s not. It’s a matter of perspective. You choose how you see things, then things start changing into what you want them to be like.
Younger self: What do you mean?
Me today: Who do you want to become? What would your life look like if you already were that person?
What would you eat, what time would you wake up?
How would you spend your time? Who would you spend it with?
How would you look like, think like if you’d have the things you wish you had right now?
Younger self: Ummm…
Me today: Take your time. Think about it. If you were that person, what would you do right this second?
Act like you already are that person.
And you will become her.
