Food for Thought

How can we excel amongst the mess of our reality if we are constantly being weighed down by it. Despite what is going on around us, we have to rise above it all.

We have to learn how to not allow our environment to infect us.

Why not be the light in the dark or the smile amongst the frowns. Who knows when your storm will pass, so dance in the rain and sing though your pain because sitting and complaining will only give you more of the same.. only action can bring change.

No more lies, No more excuses

A point comes when you no longer have any excuses to tell yourself, all the reasons you use to justify why you haven’t started a certain project or given up that annoying bad habit eventually run out. You can lie to everyone around you, you can even lie to yourself for awhile but after awhile even you will stop believing the lies and excuses you tell yourself.

Why do we put things off until the last minute, why do we wait until our backs are against the wall?

The bigger the change the bigger the sacrifice. If it was going to be easy we’d have done it by now right? We anticipate how hard something will be and this is what stops us from starting in the first place. The thought of not knowing how to do something makes us uncomfortable and puts us off, wanting instant results and not getting them discourages us, thinking about how to start stresses us out so we don’t.

If we stop at the first mind hurdle we’ll never make it out the blocks to the action stage. Some would rather not start if they can’t guarantee success but ask yourself this, isn’t not starting failure anyway?

Enough is enough! We can’t keep thinking like this, we can’t keep allowing ourselves to be our own downfall. What we put in is what we get out, it’s as simple as that.

We can keep doing the bare minimum and continue to get minimum results or we can choose to say now is the time and do more.

Opportunities, Fear & Patience

Some opportunities don’t come around everyday so when they do appear we have to be ready and willing to take it. 

There is never going to be a perfect time to start something new only the time you make.

So many times in our life we talk about wanting more, wanting to be more but we’re afraid to take the risks having more involves. 

Fear of failure is what is stopping so many of us from chasing our dreams. Fear of not knowing what to do is what keeps so many of us in our comfort zones. Ultimately we pass up on opportunities because of fear. 

The decisions we make in life should be based on our dreams and aspirations not on our fears. We have to accept that with all things we have to start from somewhere and then be prepared to put in the necessary man hours to master our craft. 

We live in a age where everyone wants instant results, we live in a now generation where everything is fast paced and easily accessible. As the years have gone by and the world we’re living in has changed, patience is one of the characteristics we have lost along the way. We’re not accustomed to waiting for things like those before us who had no choice.

Success doesn’t download at these fibre optic speeds we’re now experiencing, real life results is still working on a dial-up speed meaning it takes time, they may be some interruption but with perseverance you will eventually get what you want.

Don’t let fear stop you from taking opportunities, when they come knocking open the door and with all things remember to be patient.

Peace, Love & Positivity

What are you waiting for?! 

At what point do you say enough is enough, at what point do you pick yourself up and take control of your life? 

For the majority of us there are no free hands outs in this world, if we want something we have to make it happen. A lot of the time we over complicate things by overthinking when really it’s simple.. If you don’t like the situation you are in YOU have to make a decision that you want to change it. 

At what point do we stop expecting and start acting. We all have different breaking points, for some breaking point is absolute rock bottom and for others it’s simply not being where they want to be in life. 

Is your breaking point any less or any more than another’s? No, to break is to break regardless of what point it comes at. It’s not the breaking that defines us it’s how we stick the pieces back together, it’s what we do when we reach our breaking point that decides where we go from there, up or deeper into obscurity.

Sometimes we hit hurdles in life, sometimes we find ourselves on a path we never envisioned but the good news is that nothing is set in stone. It’s never too late to make a change, it’s never to late to change direction and walk down a completely different path. Don’t let life deceive you, you have the power within to make change happen. 

How many times have you told yourself I’ll do it tomorrow? Don’t wait until tomorrow because what you find is you can become trapped in a cycle of waiting for tomorrow’s, tomorrow’s that never come.

Take back control, make a decision and run with it.

Dust Yourself Off And Try Again

Until we’ve learnt the lessons intended for us we will always continue to make the same mistakes, we’ll always end up in the same sticky situations.

Life isn’t as complicated as we make it out to be, we’re given free will to choose the direction we’d like our life to go in, we’re given the choice in how we respond to the problems we face. Nothing is set in stone, no one can make you do or say things you don’t want to. Every word, every action comes from a choice we’ve made. This precise moment you are living is a result of a decision you made previously.

It’s so easy to blame things on other people or the world we live in. So many live with a woe is me mentality. We complain life is hard, we practically complain about everything but the ones continually complaining are the ones who are not willing to make the hard decisions or put in the hard work instead they expect things to be handed to them, we expect to one day have a miraculous change when in fact we must take action. 

How can you compare yourself to someone not knowing their story not knowing what they’ve done to be where they are, do you know the blood, tears and sweat they’ve shed to overcome what they have or do you just see and assume it came easy.

Life is really simple. Go after what you want in life. If you make mistakes learn from it and try again. You can’t knock a trier.
