Are You On The Right Bus?

Andrew Roberts Mindset, Philosophy 26 Comments

Have you ever found yourself in a job, relationship or situation that you had a deep knowing was not right for you?

This is a sign that you may not be on the right bus.

“When you let go of how you think things SHOULD BE and embrace how it IS, your life will magically become the one you’ve been searching for”

The reality is that when you are desperately chasing something, you’re actually pushing it away.

  • Do you really need to conquer new goals to feel good?
  • How is it that some people that have nothing compared to us are so much happier?
  • Why is it that we have such a need to be consumed with money and material things at the expense of happiness?
  • Isn’t it actually happiness that we are all chasing?

Isn’t it crazy that in the Western world, we are so ready to sacrifice so much happiness in order to make the money to buy things that we don’t really need and don’t really want to impress people we don’t even know or don’t even like?

So ask yourself, “What the hell am I chasing?” and “Am I on the right bus or am I on someone else’s bus?

Realising You’re On The Wrong Bus Is A Positive Step

Our brain often gets in the way and puts us on a bus we’re not meant to be on. This is when things start going wrong in different areas of our lives such as our relationships, money or our career.

These are just blessings in disguise, they are taps trying to get us back on the right path.
What you need to do is …

  1. STOP
  2. Change direction (you can’t steer a parked car)
  3. Back yourself

Too often, we make decisions based on the question, “will this make me more money?”
A Dolphin will ride the crest of a wave and let the power propel it forward whereas too many humans are 3 metres ahead of the wave, paddling frantically and not enjoying the journey.

In a study by a nurse of terminally ill patients, the top 3 regrets were:

  1. I wish I had helped more people
  2. I wish I didn’t work so hard
  3. I wish I was true to myself

REMEMBER: ‘Wisdom is the application of knowledge’, none of this means anything unless you do something about it. With no new actions, there are no new results, so make a decision to get on the right bus and start your wonderful journey.
