"Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice."
- Wayne Dyer
Write your own life, stop wasting your time on useless gimmicks that are slowly taking over. I am not saying don't have some fun but we need to guard our time the way most people guard their money. If someone was burning their money because they were bored we would think they were crazy. Everyday I would bet almost everyone wastes some of their precious time. As people we believe we have plenty, but we do not. No one knows how much time we have left.
We our the masters of our own fate, but the last thing I want to do is look back on my life and wish I would have done it differently. At that point it 's too late. I want to control my life now, make the decisions that will bring lasting change into my life. I believe there are 3 things we must do to take control of our destiny.
1. Wake Up!
We obviously need to realize that a change must be made, things will not change themselves. It is proven in a law of physics, an object at rest will remain at rest. We must realize that we want to change things in our lives. Otherwise we will be in the same place as last year.
2. Take Action.
After you realize that you hate your life (just kidding), you will want to change certain things in it to alter the outcomes that you have been receiving. So you realized that you want something different, you must now be that difference. Don't want to be poor, study on how you can make money a different way then you did before. Don't want to be fat, get up an extra 20 minutes early and jump rope before you take a shower, and do it everyday( don't eat so bad either). The choices are yours to make. There is just one multiplier in the formula.
We can make decisions and never act on them but that usually just depresses us more. When you truly want to make a change you will actually get angry at yourself for not acting on your new direction in life, you will force yourself to alter your direction everyday, or live in disgust that you didn't. This I have learned first hand, I hate the fact that I didn't stay consistent, in turn I would get even more depressed. We have to remain consistent over time to let momentum kick in, once momentum starts it is super easy to continue to improve ourselves. The key is to think long term and not to be discouraged when we don't see immediate results, results compound over time.
So stick with it, follow the blog and lets make this year the best ever, at least until next year.
