But if my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy
Well I deserve nothing more than I get
Cos’ nothing I have is truly mine
When it comes to your life. When it comes to the important decisions that you make on a daily basis…are you a doer or a thinker? Are you a participant or an observer? Are you being active or reactive?
Who is making the BIG decisions in your life?
Who is shaping your life?
Are you following your heart, your dreams and your goals?
Or are you giving in to fear?
Giving into other people’s expectations of you?
Can you truly say that you’re in total control of your life right now?
If the answer is No, then you’re wrong.
Because no matter what you think, the reality is that you are always in control of your life.
You are the captain.
You are the pilot.
You are the boss!
If you’re not living a fulfilling life it’s no one else’s fault but your own.
You’re choosing to sacrifice things, you’re choosing to compromise for others. It’s your decision.
It’s no secret that we love to pass fault around as if it were free candy.
But how does it help us to blame others? Sure, the Ego feels better. But how does that help? We’re just feeding it. It loves excuses. Does it make us happier?
It’s time to STOP making excuses & Take Control.
How? Here are 3 easy steps:
Step 1: Admit that you are holding yourself back.
Admit that you’re afraid. Admit that you’re to blame. Admit to yourself that you are powerful beyond measure and that the ability to completely transform your life lies in your hands and your hands only.
Step 2: Commit to taking a step forward towards the path that you would like to be on.
It could be a baby step but it has to be an action, a change, something that you can feel.
You have to feel that change happening in your life.
You can write it down. It could be starting to exercise from tomorrow for example, hell why not today. It could be to change your eating habits, to be more honest, to volunteer some more, to wake up earlier, to be braver, to do a random act of kindness today. Whatever it is, set a goal for yourself. A real goal that you can accomplish within a certain amount of time.
For example: My goal is to reach PRIME Health. Right now, that means to lose 20 lbs in 90 days. To exercise more. To wake up earlier and be more active.
My other goal is to blog more often, write a poem or a song a day, to always, always, always spread love and kindness to every human being I encounter. Those are just a few.
In order to achieve this, I’ve enrolled in a program. So you see? That’s me being proactive with my life.
Step 3: Don’t give up when the going gets tough.
Because it will… It always does. If there’s one thing we can depend on life to do is to give us a hard time. But it does that because it loves us so much. How else can we grow?
How many of you have tried something new and quit halfway through?
The reality is: You’re just not going to get there if you give up. No matter what happens, no matter how hard it gets, no matter how many mistakes you make, it’s not over until you call it. It’s only over when you stop trying. And we seem to do that too easily nowadays.
So my advice? Don’t get comfortable. Trust me, I know how easy it is. How good it feels. But you’re honestly missing out! There’s so much out there waiting to come to you… you just have to let it in.
