I am dumbfounded by the number of people who seem to be disconnected from the fact that their actions contribute greatly to their life. If you have followed my blog for any length of time you are probably tired of me harping on this, but it still astounds me. I can tell you that I underachieved for many years working in the golf industry. I settled for an occupation that came easy to me, but didn’t challenge me at all.
There was a time when I didn’t get that I didn’t get it!
When I finally came to terms with the fact that my actions directly contributed to what I was getting in life, my life changed for the better. I stopped drinking. I started eating better. I started a simple exercise regimen. I started reading more. I started the Dream Big blog. I started volunteering with the National MS Society.
I took control of as many factors as I could. I decided to stop leaving life up to chance and decided I was going to dictate the terms. And it has worked much better than the way I was living before. I know some of you are not going to buy what I’m saying and that is okay. I’m not going to tell you what to do.
The fact I have realized since taking direct control of my life is life is better now than it was 4 years ago. That’s all the evidence I need. I’m glad now that I get that I kinda get it.
