I have always been really good at giving advice. Wasn’t always the best at taking it. I always used to say if I just would take my own advise I’d be okay. Well now I am at a crossroads in my life. I want to continue to be able to give advise . I know I have to get better at taking it.
Sometimes it is Better to Listen to Advise Then Give it
My memory skills have helped me a great deal in life. I retain so much information ,it is mind boggling at times. What i have to focus on is my listening skills. If i could concentrate and focus more on what i am listening to, I can remember more useful information. That is very important in the field i desire to be a big part of.
I am Listening!!!
It is very important for my to clear my mind before I listen. My brain has to many thoughts going on at one time. That is where my listening defaults. I already know this. That is where discipline needs to step in to my life. I am very self disciplined so i see myself becoming a very successful listener.
Wow , I am at day 71. Time flies when you are living your life. Not letting life live you. Sam Crowley had said, “I see dead people everyday” I know what he means. He didn’t mean that he can see the dead. He meant that the average person is walking around like they are dead. They are letting life live them, not living there life.
I am Living My Life as I Choose to.
I refuse to walk around like I am dead. I want to feel life. Enjoy and embrace it. I have taken full control over myself. I practice full discipline. I make choices for myself and stick to them. When I don’t the only person I am hurting is myself. Why would I choose to do that.
I love that I am able to touch the hearts and souls of those I talk with. I learn from the same people I help. That is true growth in my eyes. When you are able to give and take at the same time.I used to not be the best listener. That has changed because I wanted it to grow and learn. You can’t learn if you don’t listen.
All you need is DISCIPLINE to over come this.
I find in life people tend to make excuses for their behavior. People who Drink, Smoke, Gamble and even Shop. They to me show a lack of self discipline. Doctors like to put labels on behaviors , which then allows the behaviors to continue. Instead of finding the reason behind the behavior they label it and move on.
Is Addiction Really That or Is It a Lack of Self Discipline?
I am no doctor but it is plain to see that everything people claim to be addicted to can be stopped if they just choose to. I know easier said than done. Not true. If you want anything in life bad enough you will get it. If a drug addict wants drugs but has no money , they will find a way to get money. At the same time they can find a way not to get high. They just choose to be weak.
Why would anybody want to choose failure as an option in life? And why do people think they have to do it alone. Nobody wants to see there loved one failing in there life. That is when friends and family step in and want to help. So ask. The only shame is not asking .
Take control and discipline yourself.
