Success is possible. But every day, life expects results from you. What good do you bring to the table – of LIFE? Are you just sitting and waiting to be served… or do you have something of value to offer. The world is full of people who need things. Either you will go about the task of seeing to those needs by learning a unique set of skills, or the world will reject you, no matter how kind, giving and polite you are.
Life is about reality. Everything is ‘Real world’ and ‘Real time’. There are no re-runs or replays. You don’t have to like it. In fact, you don’t have to like anything…. You don’t even have to agree with everything. But for sure, life will still go on. And you will still have to do things that will help you find the joy in life, and make your life worthy of living.
If you want something to change in your life, don’t complain, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. The world never responds to wishes. It doesn’t care what you prefer… things will happen, and then you will have to adjust to the way things happen. You may not like it when it rains. But it rains anyway. Clouds form, then the thunder… and the lightening – and finally the rain. Yet, there’s nothing you can do about it but make an adjustment to keep from getting wet. Similarly, people have needs… and they assign value to the people who are mentally and physically equipped to meet those needs.
Here are four things about life you should know that might help you to look deeper into life… and help you make changes which will make your life better.
You are settling somewhere in your life. Somewhere in your life you’ve said, “This is good enough” when deep down you know it’s not. You want more. You want something better. Maybe at the time you settled you knew it was just temporary, and you vowed to change things later. Was yesterday later? Is it today? Guess what? You don’t have a time for later. Do it now. Tomorrow is borrowed time you can’t afford.
You can have more. You don’t have to settle for anything but extraordinary.
You are 100% capable of living your dream life, but fear has you captive. The enemy has you overwhelmed by fear- that you can’t live your dream life. That thing that you want is too hard, too scary, you’re too old, or not “enough” of something. But it’s all a lie. Search deeper to see the truth in your heart. It might be quiet, but it’s there.
The answer or solution to your happiness is not based on anything but you. It’s not going to magically happen when you lose weight. It’s not going to happen when you get married, or get a promotion, or any circumstance outside of you. Go ahead and try. Expect the magic to happen when you reach this marker. See what happens. Truth is… you have to live out what you want to see happen for you.
By not loving yourself like you should, you are cheating yourself out of your life. Loving GOD, loving others and then loving you… are the fundamental ingredient in life’s happiness. Without those… you will wander lost with a hole in your heart. You will waste time, constantly trying to fill it up with outside circumstances or ways to numb it. Over spending, over eating, over exercising, drinking, relationships, or whatever it is you do to try to get the love you need… it won’t work. Love has to start with loving you – for who you are.
The bottom line is you have to actually “TRY” before you can expect results. You don’t have the right to complain unless you actually make an effort first.
