If you’re gonna be great, it’s gonna take more than just hard work. Sure, hard work is ultra important. But that’s not going to be what get’s you to the next level of happiness.
Wanna know how you can really turn your life from good to great?
Stop complaining and making excuses.
Guaranteed that there’s someone (or multiple someones) out there that have it just as “bad” or worse than you. No matter what is going on around you, just remember that ultimately, you have control over your own life.
Listen, brotholomew. You could be great AND happy. But it will take a little work. The most important thing to understand is that it rarely, if ever, comes wandering up to you. You are just going to have to get off your but(t) and figure it out for yourself.

P.S. You are bigger than your but, ha!…buuuuuttttt you don’t have to go it alone. There are 8 billion people in the world. There’s probably someone out there that’s had the same issue that’s just dying to hear you share your story and help. Go find them! Join a meet-up group. Or go online to one of the millions of Facebook groups (here’s mine). Hell, you can even go to one of those good old-fashioned support groups. At the end of the day, you have a choice. Either make excuses or make things happen…Talk soon!
