What is Common Sense? And What Is Common Practice?

“The universe doesn’t give you what you ask for with your thoughts – it gives you what you demand with your actions.” 
Steve Maraboli

We all have a certain image of how we want our life to be, or how we want ourselves to be.

But the thing is, are we doing what it takes to get there, to be in that place we always tell ourselves we should be in?

We always say I deserve this and I deserve that, but then feel frustrated and angry when we don’t have it! Have you ever wondered why you’re not getting what you want?

It’s because you are not putting the common practice into the common sense, it’s as simple as that!

Will you get those six packs you have always dreamt of having if you don’t bust your ass off at the gym and follow a healthy lifestyle? of course not!

The same applies to every area in your life, if you want to be an entrepreneur and start your own business, having a plan to do so is not the answer. However, the actions you take are!

They say five frogs were standing on a log in a river, four of them decided to jump, how many are left?

Five! because they only decided to jump but didn’t actually have the courage to do it.

Don’t just think and plan how you want to be as a soul in this universe, what changes do you want to make or what lifestyle you want to have. Start taking actions, push yourself to take that first step (which is usually the hardest) because one bold move after the other, you will build a momentum and things will start to make sense again.

Write down what actions you want to take that will move you a small step closer each day to where you want to be, and start doing them. Not next week, not next month… NOW, because now is all you’ve got!


Peace & Love,
