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.
How could I sit here and give advice if I don’t share My Own Journey?
I too have a past. I used to allow my past experiences to cloud my judgement in everything I do. I knew that I wanted to stop using my childhood as an excuse. My past relationships would hinder my new ones.
My Own Journey truly started for me about 5 years ago. I was tired of letting my life control me. I needed to gain control of my life. I started reading book after book. Everyday I would incorporate what I have read into my life. I felt a change, so I took a break from reading.
Then it dawned on me, you can never stop improving yourself. I continued my search to what would help me help myself. I found very empowering books and self help programs. I was growing. I found out some important things about myself. I like me! I was able for the first time in my life look in a mirror and see my reflection and liked what I saw. I knew this was a start to a new me. I need to go back into these relationships under my terms.
It was my life and i was ready to take full control of it. Then I came across the book THE SECRET.
I hadn’t heard of it till my brother -in-law’s grandmother shared her copy with me. It helped me realize that I am an amazing person. All the changes I was making in my life were going to create an amazing future for me. But reading The Secret wasn’t enough growth for me. I knew that I am capable of so much more. I have hidden talents that I am yet to discover.
As always I again search the internet to find more ways to better myself. I searched The Law of Attraction in a random search engine. I came across a web page that offered an income and personal growth. I thought I might have just struck gold….. To make this long story short … I did.
I found The Beyond Freedom program. It is a 90 day self help program.
I am on Day 8. Continue reading
