How many of you feel like you’re at your breaking point?
You’re tired of paying bills. You’re tired of your job. You’re tired of your kids. You’re tired of your spouse. You’re tired of this work-weekend-pay bills rotation. You’re tired of adulthood all together. You need a vacation to the middle of nowhere, where no phones or other distractions are allowed. Can I get an, “Amen,” from the congregation?
I get it but, please point me in the direction of the person who told you that life was going to be easy, so I can slap them silly. I doubt anyone has ever told you that. In fact, I’m sure people have told you the exact opposite yet, here you are complaining, whining and slowly dying. Life comes with hardships, adversity, heartbreak, bulls**t, bills, responsibilities etc. but it also comes with love, vacations, success, family, wealth and abundance – it’s all about perspective.
Without a shift in perspective you’ll think of every plight as a shortcoming instead of an opportunity to rise. Every stressful endeavor or difficulty or moment of discomfort etc. gifts you an opportunity to learn. The only loss is not learning. Today I challenge you to shift your perspective.
Make a list of everything and everyone you are grateful for.
Make another list of everything and everyone that stresses you out.
Whichever list is longer, that’s the list you need to focus on, not dwell on – focus on. If your stresses list is longer, you need to work on minimizing and eventually abolishing those triggers. This life – this is it! Stop living yours like this is the trial run – it’s not. You are unmotivated, uninspired and tired because you choose to be. There’s an immense amount of power in your choices.
Stop wallowing in self-pity. Pick yourself up and start again.
You got this!
