My life sucks, I want to try this but I’m just not sure, I wish I had the time to.blah blah blah. If you are one of those people who make up excuses as to why they can’t do something or stuck in your old ways this post is for you….
Why do we yearn to want to try something or we’re just so stuck in our old ways that nobody can move us from that spot? it’s because you’re comfortable and you see nothing wrong about where you are in life, but that your current life and a million other excuses are stopping you from where you want to be.
It’s really easy to become comfortable. You get that apartment you always wanted. But what about moving forward sometime in life towards house that can actually be yours? You spend your days looking at HGTV or looking at house tours on YouTube and wish you were where they were. The real answer. You can be where they are, but it takes stepping out of your comfort zone and being familiar with the unfamiliar.
Once you accomplish a goal in life, you should always ask yourself this question, What’s next? You graduate college with your bachelors in nursing, What’s next? Are you just satisfied with a piece of paper that you think defines your work ethic or worth. No. You define your work ethic, success, and work. You purchase an apartment? What’s next? Are you going to be in your comfort zone with giving away money for a place that will never be yours. In reality, if you add up all the money you have spent on an apartment in a year, you could already be saving for a house.
You have to be willing to step out of that comfort zone and do something you’ve never did before to get results that you’ve never gotten. That is what a lot of your favorite celebrities or idols have done to get to where they are. Don’t be afraid to fail. You may or may not succeed. That is why they have a thing called “trial and error”. You learn from your mistakes and you try your best to correct them based off your mistakes.
When you look back on your life, you don’t want to look back with regret and wish you would have started that business ten years ago, or I should have taken that job, maybe my life would be different now. Don’t think of could’ve, would’ve should’ve. Say ” I will, I am, and I have. I will step towards that goal and get out of my comfort zone. I am stepping out of my comfort zone by doing something I’ve never did. I have stepped out of my comfort zone, I might have failed, but I am creating trial and error in my life. That is okay.
We settle in relationships as well. We’re afraid to be alone and so we accept disrespect and unneeded behavior from somebody. We then create room for a bruised ego later on. Do not let fear paralyze you and keep you in that spot that you want.
In this world, we have a great deal of technology. Technology that makes us lazy. We want something fast, right then and there, and hate to wait for it. Some people don’t want to wait for the right person, so they get the first option that comes along and whispers “sweet nothings” in their ear or you get someone that’s already bad and you have the intention of thinking you can changed them. Let me tell you this, you cannot change a person, they have to want to change and only for the person they feel is worth it. You’re better off being alone waiting for the right person.
Dating takes time and effort. This is very much like every other aspect in our life. Anything worth having, is worth working for. Sometimes you may be in a spot that you like, but you stay in that spot because it’s much easier not to challenge yourself. Get out that rut that you’re in. That’s between where you are and where you want to be.
We have no room for laziness. Stop making up excuses. People will complain all day about their current situation, yet will never do nothing about it because they are comfortable. Also, stop using the past as a crutch to justify why you can or can’t do something. The past is just that, the past. Use the past to motivate you for where you want to be in life.
Change your mindset today. Surround yourself with positive people or people who have the same vision as you. Negative people will only tell you negative things so be mindful on who you tell your dreams or business to. Design a plan and set it in motion. Excellence is the goal. Don’t live a life of mediocrity.
