It’s easy to forget why we started on our personal journey when we’re in the trenches, fighting our way to your personal and professional goals.
Life throws hardships and challenges at us left and right, and it’s tempting to give up and throw in the towel. Not only is it tempting, it’s easy. The world has made it easy for us to make an excuse or blame.
People nowadays are all too eager to coddle you when you don’t achieve something. It’s too easy to rationalize and justify.
When you feel that. When you hear that. When you see that. You must remember, only you are in power here.
You Are In Charge!
When you complain about the economy, people don’t want to buy, my partner doesn’t support me, my friends won’t help me, the sales aren’t good enough…whatever it is. When you complain about the ONLY things you actually have. You have nothing left.
You are always in charge of your life no matter what hand you were dealt. Other people can advise you but at the end of the day, only YOU can make the decisions for your life.
It sounds harsh but it’s true! If other people are making decisions for your life, then you aren’t really living are you? You are just existing and going through the motions day after day after day…
Now I’m not saying that life is perfect and that everything will be handed to you on a silver platter, but if YOU don’t take control, then who will? Who will make the decisions for your life? Who will create the future that YOU want? No one else is going to do it for you! So whatever hand you were dealt in life, make the best of it and never give up on yourself because only YOU have the power here!
It’s easy to forget our “why”–why we’re doing what we’re doing when challenges pop up seemingly out of nowhere (which let’s be honest, they do). It would be so much easier to just give up sometimes but if we did that whenever things got tough, we would never get anywhere or achieve anything in life.
The next time you find yourself feeling like giving up, remember why you started on this journey in the first place and all of the reasons why you want to see it through until the end. Only YOU have the power here so do something about it!
Almost every “Professional Speaker” on the planet claims they’re number one in whatever topics they speak on. It’s not how many books you’ve written that matters, but rather what best practices you can transfer to the audience, based on a proven track record.
