What if I told you that if you added one thing to your life you could make it infinitely better? Would that be something that you would be interested in? If you do this thing you'll get more out of life than you are getting now, and you will succeed far more often at things you have failed at before. If you just simply add this thing to your life you will become a better person. This one thing is simple to understand, but might be difficult to achieve. This change will require that you stop taking the easy road mentally, and that you get real with yourself.
The one thing you need to do is to live a life of faith, and holiness. I know what you are thinking right now, and if you hear me out you will be better for it. Many of you may not believe in a God or practice any kind of religion. Many of you even tense up at the sound of it, and it might even make you angry. However, what does it mean to live a life of faith, and holiness? That means to set your mind to believing you will accomplish what you set out to accomplish. When your life is one of faith you are more willing to step out, and try new things. You don't automatically assume that anything you do will fail, and all your ideas are stupid. Even if you don't believe in God you can still believe in yourself, and the power of positive thinking. You may think it's cheesy or stupid, but if you honestly give yourself over to it you will find yourself having more good days. The reason behind that is simple. If you look for bad, and evil things you will find them. If you look for good things you will find them. Also, living a life of holiness entails that you do what is right. Again, if you don't believe in religion you still have a moral, and a legal compass. While you do wrong things no matter your beliefs you will feel guilt and shame. If you live a life free from guilt and shame you will be happier. If you aren't sure about your beliefs challenge them search your bible, Koran, or Torah. Ask those who are experts on the subject. You will come out stronger on the other side if you have faith.
