Don't Become What You've Settled For
It's okay to remove things form your life.
Far too often, we keep things in our lives that we love for the wrong reasons. We refuse to remove them because they're our habits, or they're people we care about. Unfortunately, those habits don't always serve us, and those people don't always care for us. In life, it's easy to keep those things in our lives anyway, because we're afraid of moving forward without them. We're afraid of the unknown, and prefer the known even when it causes us pain.
Your pain is ruining your life.
Those people and habits will do nothing for your future, and that's why some bridges are essential to burn. Let me ask you something—what are the thing sin your life that are tearing you apart? What are the things in your life that you're holding onto out of the hopes that something will change? What toxic piece of your life are you giving chance after chance? Whatever it is, it's up to you to cut it out of your life. Too many of us are expecting something to change when we aren't willing to make changes ourselves. Too many of us are holding ourselves back, and too many of us are becoming products of the things we tolerate. Stop becoming what you've settled for.
Stop being afraid of your options, and stop being too scared of moving forward to move at all. Stop choosing the easy option, and stop choosing convenience and familiarity over what you actually need. We all have the option to move our lives to a better place, but not many of us end up doing it. Whoever you are, you've experienced this phenomenon. People who want to be more fit have the option to be lazy instead of going to the gym, and they have the option to eat junk food instead of meal-prepping. Every day, we plant seeds of limitation in ourselves. We plant seeds of struggle when we should be planting seeds of progression. We should be planting seeds of faith. Instead of doubt, we should be planting seeds of perseverance and hope. Let me ask you something—are you planting seeds of hope in your life, or are you giving yourself far less than you deserve?
Everyone wants to be fit, but no one wants to get up off the couch. We all have options, and the options we choose will reflect on our growths. The options we choose will decide the types of people we become. This week, I want you to be more conscious of the options that are presented to you, and I want you to think about what your best options truly are. Then, I want you to pick the right option, even when it requires a lot of work on your part.
It all starts with you.
