Life is not as difficult as so many people make it out to be. At least it doesn't have to be. You were given a life to live for a reason: To experience all the ups and downs. Often people tend to focus on the "downs". But this is a huge mistake. At least it is if you want to have a happy life. The "downs" exist solely that we can know what we prefer and what we don't. If you find yourself stuck in a job you hate (down) than you know what you don't want. And when you know what you don't want, it is easier to realize what you do want. Just focus on the opposite of what you don't want. If you don't want to work hard to make lots of money, than that means you want to play hard to make lots of money. Focus on that! How much fun would life be if you made lots of money by playing! Now, everyone's idea of playing is going to be different. What one person likes isn't necessarily what another person likes. All you have to do is pay attention to how you are feeling. Your feelings will never steer you in the wrong direction. If you are faced with a choice that feels wrong, than listen to your feelings. Some people call that listening to your gut. It's the same thing. Fear prevents many from listening to their gut. If you are offered a job that you know you will hate, then you have a choice. Fear is that little voice inside your head saying "what if that's the only offer you get? How will you pay your bills? Everyone hates their job, so why are you so special?" We've all heard that voice before, and listened to it. More importantly, we've all probably regretted listening to that voice. Put that fear in a box, and start trusting your emotions. If something smells rotten to you, or just plain not right for you, then stay away from it. Focus on what you love. Pay attention to your heart. It will never lead you astray. The universe works in magical ways and is always wanting what is best for us, but we have to be willing partners. If you tell universe what you want, by focusing on it, then the universe will bring it to you. Have faith, trust in the process, find fun and humour in the little things, and bigger things will come your way.
