Life does not have to be complicated. If you want to be happy all you need to do is make sure your life is on a steady progression towards ownership. Every day should bring you a little closer to being emotionally, mentally, and physically responsible for yourself. Ultimately, this is the only way to be happy and free. Here are three key reasons why your life must be a steady progression towards ownership.
1. If You are Not Moving Forward You are Going Backward
Life is dynamic. Everything is always changing. You have two choices you can make progress or you can regress. If you are not moving towards ownership, however incrementally, you are moving backwards. There is no standing still.
It is crucial that you are making steady progress because otherwise you will be moving farther and farther away from the type of freedom and happiness we all crave and deserve.
You need to have daily habits that are helping you be accountable for your actions and to take a lit bit more ownership of your life, otherwise you will be slowly pulled away from ownership and success and find yourself the victim in your own story instead of the hero.
2. Ownership is a Gradual Process
Just like there is no such thing as an overnight success, it takes a lot of time to take ownership of yourself emotionally, mentally, and physically. In our society we receive almost no training in how to take ownership. We are taught to look to powerful companies and governments to take care of us.
Even if you now know that this idea is a fraud, it still takes time to take ownership for yourself. You have to be both patient and relentless in working towards ownership. If you aren’t making steady progress it is too easy to fall back into bad thought habits.
3. If You Don’t Eventually Take Ownership of Your Life, You Will Never be Truly Happy
The only way to truly be happy is to live life on your own terms. If you aren’t moving towards ownership of every aspect of your life you are letting others control you. How can you ever be happy and free when someone else is calling the shots?
A steady progression towards ownership gives you hope that you will someday reach your goal of freedom. It also allows you to get used to operating with increasing amounts of control over your own life. If you are steadily working towards ownership, you will be fully prepared for all the challenges that come with being free. If you do not make steady progress, you will get discouraged. Without steady progress it is easy to let others get inside of your head. Instead of looking up towards your goals, you will be looking down and start worrying about the dangers. Once you start worrying about the fall, it is tough to keep climbing up towards your goal. If you are serious about happiness and freedom, make sure you are gradually making progress towards complete ownership of your life.
