Why I decided that I must live my life on my terms.

Yesterday, I was talking to my partner, and even though I had heard Alex Hormozi mention that "We're all going to die, it doesn't matter who we are", I had never had the "click" that I needed to have to feel it.

We're all going to die one day, and we don't know when that day will be.
I've spent my whole life trying to find my purpose, where I was simply disappointed most of the time, and I was always looking at other people and comparing myself.

But now, I can finally say that I am slowly feeling like I am finding it with more clarity.

For that reason, as scary as it might be, I decided that I needed to stop being scared of things that weren't going to help me achieve the goals that I have set for myself.

The one is to make sure that I always focus on doing something that I love.

The second one is to enjoy the process and the journey that comes with doing what I love.

Basically, I want to grow old doing what I love, not feeling that I am working.

More specially what that means is: building solutions that solve problems (help people) and improve how things are being done (innovate).

What's that one thing for you?
