You have to be life empowering to yourself . You cannot sit and wait till someone comes along and does it for you !
Stop being the victim in your life. Don’t sit and say that things happen for a reason , then when those things happen you are questioning why it did . Always passing the blame on to others . It is like a tug of war . You will never win . Let go and move on .
OWN IT … Use it to EMPOWER Yourself !
How many time do you find yourself being passionate about what you don’t want to happen in your life. You focus you whole being on it . In the end you find yourself surround by what you didn’t want to happen. Take that and turn it in your favor. Take that passion and place it in a positive light . Only move forward with it . Like a fish you can only swim one way and that is forward.
I like to think I attract great things in my life . Now that is . I didn’t always think this way .
What do you attract to you ?
I was one of those people when it rain it pours. Everything happens to me. Never the good. Well that is what I thought. The fact of the matter was . All I focused on was the bad things that happened and did not give much attention to the good things happening around me.
Once I was able to see it is all in my mind set , I changed it immediately. Almost immediately my luck started to change. Good things started happening to me . Well to be honest I didn’t really glorify the bad things anymore. If you give it attention then it would mean that it effects me. I will no longer allow the negative effect my life. I only allow great things to be attracted to me.
Is it easy to walk in these shoes ?
They say if you want to be something in life you should walk a day in those shoes . That way you are sure that is what you want for you life . So in a way it is like faking it till you make it.
They say you should fake it till you make it , But I think that is a fine line. I think it is great to put yourself in someone elses shoes . But how long are you willing to fake it for. How long does it take to make it?
It takes as long as it take for you to take the actions to get you there. Everyday you have to ask yourself . Am I doing everything I can today to reach my goals ? If your answer is no . Just know that you are the only thing stopping you from finding success .
Do you depend to much on others ? Can you make any decisions for yourself ? Some people are afraid to even put these questions into thought . The reason being is they will come to realize that they are not really in charge of there own lives.
Self reliance means reliance on one’s own powers and resources rather than those of others. Not many people can say they are truly self – reliant . I would like to think I am . The truth be told I am not 100% self – reliant . That is something I am working on. Many people wouldn’t think that about me . I am very serious about being in motion and doing everything it take to be in total control of my life.
So I feel to achieve success in my life I need to be self – reliant and be in motion. More important not to force it ! It can happen if you make a decision for it to .
Failure in my life is not a option.
How many times in your life have you heard I forgot ? Do they really forget or did they :
Forgetting to remember really isn’t the same is forgetting. It is more like choosing not to remember. The information that you are given wasn’t important enough to remember. You made a choice to store it in a place in your mind that you will only return to it after you are reminded that you forgot.
My daughter is infamous for forgetting to remember. It is a regular saying for her. When we made her realize it was a choice she realized that she can change that. She still forgets to remember , but it is not as often as it used to be.
How many times do you say you are going to clean house in your life ? But when it comes down to it a lot gets sweep-ed under the rug. You decided every year you are going to stop doing the wrong things and start doing the right ones. You are going to stop complaining and start doing something about it.
Out with the Old , In with the New
I pick the topic of friendships at this time . That is what I have been dealing with a lot lately. I have come to a crossroads in my life . Do I continue to complain about the friendships I have or do I change something about them. So I am choosing to do something about the friendships. I have decided to end them. It is time in my life to let go of people who have been in my life out of habit. The ones who have been just there because I am used to it that way. I am letting go of those who don’t challenge me to be a better human. I am letting go of those that are my friend because of need . The friendships that are draining to me.
With all of those friendships gone, I have created the space in my life for people who challenge me to be a better human. I am excited about it. I am surrounding myself with like minded people who are achieving goals and dreams in their life . I have made a goal for myself to only surround myself with people moving forward. I will never look back again.
A lot of people like to talk a good game,
Very little attempt playing in it.
Are you the type that gives great advise but never takes your own. I used to be like that. I would present how great life is and how easy it is to achieve . Up until this past year I was all game no play. This year I am all in the game. I am a key player in my game of life. A matter a fact I am the only player to my game.
How many of you have to many players in ” YOUR” life ?
You know the saying to many cooks can spoil the pot . Well to many key players in your life leave very little control for yourself . You should be the only one making big choices in the game . Yeah sure you can ask for advise . But remember people give advise off of their own experiences . So they might not mean to give you the wrong advise. But it does happen . Are the people helping you worthy of your life ?
Do we just get so comfortable in our lives that good bad or in different we keep living it ? Why is it so hard to see that the life we are living like it or not we choose into. We also get to choose out of it . Create a new one . It is just a simple as that. People will find every excuse in the book to say it isn’t . But the fact is everyday we make choices in our lives and they got us into the exact situation we are in now.
Are you happy , Really happy ?
If you life isn’t really what you want to be , why do you think you have to keep doing it . Why is it so hard to see life is not what society has created life to be . There is more to life than a good career and a 9 to 5 job. What happened to family and enjoying life. It is crazy that your employer gets to tell you how many days you are allowed to be sick in a year. When you can take vacation and how many times a year you can do that. Some jobs don’t even give you a choice when you can take it. It is quite bazaar to me .
It is sad to see all the stereotypes in the world. Being in the business that I am in I get to meet of different people. I realize how naive people are. They judge people on what society suggests that people are.
Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
I met a woman in LA last week that lives in the mid west. We got to talking about tattoos . She went on to say her impression of them. Then she went on about people that had tattoos are kinda rough in personality. Then I explained to her that I myself have several tattoos. That I intend to be a heavily tattooed woman. She was in shock. I had just finished tell her about how I am class mom and a volunteer in the school library. What a Suzie homemaker type of mother I am. I all in one conversation had changed her opinion of tattooed people. Then I made her realize that she prejudges people based on stereotypes. She really couldn’t see it to that extent.
It is sad to think that people aren’t given a fair chance for things based on the way they look. I am grateful that I am who I am . I break barriers of stereotypes. I love stepping up to the challenge . You really have to keep an open mind to make a difference and not get upset or angry when people express their opinion on people. Just put them in someone Else’s shoe for a glimpse of what they face on a daily .
Do you judge a book by it’s cover?
I think it is truly important for you to challenge yourself . Do something you would never do . Once you do that you will see that it is not that hard to believe in yourself and accomplish your goals. No matter what your past beliefs may be , You have to understand life is a CHOICE.
Every Day Step Out of The Box
Choose in to your own life. If you can see the bight side of everything life will be a much easier road to drive. Obstacles will not be to challenging for you. You will rise to the top of any situation. Most importantly remember you deserve to be happy .
