Everybody is capable of living a happy and successful life. Sure, some may have to work harder than others in order to find happiness and success, but make no mistake that anybody can live this life if they so wish. Where can one find happiness and success? It all lies within the mind of every individual.

I am a firm believer that each and every single person who walks this earth is not only capable of achieving everything that they desire in life, but that they are also responsible for the reality in which they are living in today.

From somebody who has dealt with mental illnesses for far longer than the date that I was originally diagnosed nearly six years ago, I never thought that I would find myself saying that I am responsible for it all. But it’s true. We are all responsible for the reality in which we live in today, and it is for that same reason that we can find happiness and success all within our own minds.

Rollercoaster to success.

This gift that we are living, the gift of life, think of it as a long rollercoaster. There are going to be hills and slopes, highs and lows, and twists and turns. But as long as that rollercoaster keeps moving forward, it will find its destination.

The same goes for the life that we all live. Everybody experiences the hill and slopes, the highs and lows, and the twists and turns of life. Those who don’t achieve their desires are the ones that let all of these variables keep them off track. Those who do achieve their desires, though, are the ones who follow the path of the rollercoaster no matter how many obstacles they face. That path, and there is only one, is forward.

Keep moving forward.

I truly can’t say this enough, but if you want to achieve any goal that you set for yourself, then you need to keep moving forward. No matter how small or big your step might be, moving forward is the only way that you will ever live the life in which you wish to live, and the life that you deserve to live.

I could have allowed my depression and eating disorder to control my life in every aspect, and for years they did just that, but they will not control the rest of my life

During those six years, my life remained the same. I was never happy with who I was as a person, I never felt like I was good enough at anything that I did, and the smallest gust of wind was enough to throw my emotions off the tracks.

It wasn’t until I truly had enough of feeling worthless, and until I looked inside of my own mind that I started to find happiness and success in life. The thing is, that happiness and success that I craved has always been there, all I needed to do was to dig it up and let it out.

Overcoming obstacles.

Everybody encounters obstacles in life. As I said, those who achieve their desires are the ones who keep moving forward. So why not move forward? Why not follow the only direction that leads to happiness and success – the only direction that leads to a better life that is waiting to be lived? You owe it to yourself to do so.

You are going to experience obstacles, you are going to experience doubt, and you are going to experience fear. None of those factors, though, can ever stop you from achieving the things that you wish to achieve unless you allow them to.

You are worthy of all that you desire.

I can’t tell you how much my life has changed since looking myself in the mirror and realizing that I am the only one responsible for the life that I am living. It’s why I’m writing this. I want you to see that there is nothing that you can’t do. No matter where you are at in life, no matter what you have experienced, you can achieve anything that you desire. You just need to be willing to move forward, and you do that by looking within your own mind and realizing all that you already are.

You are worthy of the things that you desire, you are worthy of the success that you envy, and you are worthy of the happiness that you crave. Look within your mind at the incredible person who you already are, and never stop moving forward towards the things that you wish to achieve. That is how you will find happiness and success.
