I am slowly coming to understand an unfortunate reality.
This reality is that most people are not going to achieve their dreams. Most people are going to wish for things, but never get them. They will want things, but they will so rarely experience that amazing feeling of having a dream come into reality. These people will let small dreams become real, but they will be too scared to pursue big ones.
When I say these people, I am talking about weaker parts of myself. I don't really know for sure what other people feel or think, but in my extremely limited contact with adults, I am coming to realize the reason why most people don't get what they want isn't because they don't know how to get what they want. It's because they don't put in the time and work to actually get these things.
I know I have found this in myself. I know I have wanted things that I don't allow myself for a long time. I give excuses, and "reasons", but really, this is me just accepting weakness.
It is unfortunate, because it seems like pursuing educating people on how they can live happier stronger lives is a pointless venture. If they don't want to live happier lives, even the most perfect road map won't be able to help them.
Although, I am sure there are at least some people who are looking for road maps that are willing to put in the work. I know I have benefited from roadmaps in my life.
Even if creating road maps helps only a couple of people get to achieving what they want, I think this is worth it.
If I can leave you with anything today, it's the simple idea that we all have the potential to be valuable, strong, happy people that are very useful to society. And we are just as capable of becoming weak people who act as leeches to society sucking up the hard work of others.
It's a choice, and the only thing separating yourself from each one is a lot of time, hard work, and pain.
It's up to you.
