Character is developed from embracing the struggle. Make your tests your testimony, instead of dwelling on the negative; focus on solving the negative. Focus on putting more into life than getting more out of life. Take risk, risk takers always gain the most out of life. Don’t know where to start? Just start, the Universe will give you immediate feedback on what needs to be done.

Dark times encounter all of us. It is how we receive it that matters. If we are victimized by our thoughts we are victimized by life. I use my memories but I don’t allow my memories to use me. When I think about losses or failures of any sort I think of it with the perspective of learning from it. When I think about something I miss; family, friends, a time in my life I focus on the positive, the great times and the happy moments; I try my hardest not to focus on the emotion of sadness and emptiness and I never allow myself to dwell in those thoughts for too long because I am fully aware that I cannot bring back something I no longer have but I can absolutely embrace the moment I am in now and the people I have in it and the things I am blessed with. So I reminisce about the times in my past but I focus more on the time of now. Darkness will pass, things will always turn out ok and if it is not ok, it has not yet passed.

How can we balance life sorrows while trying to live life abundantly? We have to learn how to awaken the beast! Think about what will make you happy with the things you have at this moment and write it down. Think about what things you think you need that will add to your happiness and write that down. Then write a plan of action towards first appreciating what you have now.
-Wake up with gratitude every day
-Be kind to yourself and others
-Embrace the bumps in the road
-Laugh at life, lighten up, don’t be so serious
-Surround yourself with positivity
*Literature *Audios
*TV/Movies *People
-Focus on the now
Now write a plan of action towards getting what you want to have
-What is it that you want?
-What do you have to do to get it?
-Start with small steps
-Write down systematic actions that can create habits
*Specific Goals
*Measurable Goals
*Attainable Goals
*Realistic Goals
*Timely Goals

Unhappiness is simply the lack of progress towards a pre set goal. In order to awake the beast within you must make progressive progress. You don’t have to arrive all at once. You don’t have to get there immediately; 3months, 6months, 1year from now you will see progress. Life is not a present of time. Life is a collection of experiences. Life isn’t about watching the clock, life starts when you wake up and ends when you rest your head. Ignore all the “you oughts” and “you shoulds”; be in control of your actions at all times. That is how you awaken the beast within. Valuing your time will give you leverage. Time is like capital and attitude plus influence play a major part of what shapes our life. Awaken the beast within by knowing what happiness means to you and start your path towards becoming that happiness.
