7 ways to live a more fulfilling life

Are you stagnating? Unhappy with your life? The first step to change is to take responsibility. Stop blaming others, your parents, your job, lack of money. The list is endless in the blame game. Responsibility for one’s self and ones feelings, hopes and desires comes from you. No one else. When you take responsibility action occurs.
- Nothing is achieved without action
What you want to achieve in your life? Set your intention. Nothing happens until you do. You want to be the best cyclist in the world? You first have to buy a bike. If you have no job? Then probably you have no money to buy a bike. Set your intention to earn money, the first step on your dream. Then build from there. You can achieve what you want with intention.
- Do something new everyday
