I look around at people in my world, friends, family, associates, (and I realize I am not perfect by any stretch of the imagination)and I see so many people settling to live a life of complacency. I understand that not every person is cut out or equiped to be a CEO, but what happened to continually striving to be the best a person can be; continuing to self-improve? If I am missing something here please comment and help me expand my understanding. I work hard to read everything I can to challenge myself to expand and not settle. I must not become complacent, I must grow.
I read so many life-complaints on Facebook and Twitter and think to myself: “Take action and change your life!! How can you expect life to change for you when you keep committed to the same actions that produced the problem you are complaining about?!?!” It drives me absolutely insane! Here’s a tip: if you are unhappy with your life then make a list of all the things you do…then do the opposite. Change your habits (aka actions) change your results.
Or continue the same habits, get the same results, but stop complaining. You are getting exactly what you should from life. This might seem harsh, but you can’t expect anyone to help YOU, except YOU. Change, change, change, change, change, change!!
“I just can’t seem to lose weight.” Meanwhile you eat 3,500 calories per week and sit watching television at night.
“I hate my job, but cannot quit because I can’t make less money.” Meanwhile, you could make household budget cuts and pay off some debt in 20 months, thus freeing you up to take a job that makes you happier.
“I wish I could make more money.” Meanwhile you hang out at night with your friends gaming, bar hopping or sitting around versus registering for night classes and furthering your education, thus setting you up for career advancement.
DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING DIFFERENT. I am being tough, but some of my readers need a kick in the butt! If you continue procrastinating, tomorrow will turn into 5, 10, 20 years. And you will be in the same place you are right now, I promise you. And I know it’s hard…but it’s not impossible!
It is time for tough love to get people to begin expecting more from themselves! Please SHARE this with your friends and let’s change somone’s life!!
