Make the HARD Decisions
I have a tendency to get pretty fired up about what I want to talk to you guys about today, because this is just a big truth about life, man. So many of us in our lives, we stay in situations that we know are not good for us. Now I do not mean just relationships. Please do not think this message is just about relationships and click away. This can be with anything in our lives that we do this with. We stay in environments, we stay in jobs, we stay in relationships, we stay in friendships, we stay in bad habits, we stay in all of these places that we know are not good for but we just choose to ignore that fact because we are too afraid to make the hard decisions that are ultimately going to be best for us in our lives to become the best possible version of ourselves that we could be.
I want to tell you from personal experience that I know making decisions can be really hard sometimes. I get it. It can be really scary to make a definitive decision because saying yes to one thing means saying no to every other possibility of that thing so we end up floating around in limbo and we stay in places we know we should not. Let me tell you something right now, if you ever want to grow, if you ever want to be better, if you ever really want to get anywhere worthwhile in your life then you NEED to be willing to make those hard decisions. There will always be times where you are not sure if you made the right decision but let me tell you that makeing the hypothetically wrong decision is miles and miles better than not making any decision at all. At least you did something. At least you took a stand on something. At least you know that you took a leap of faith and believed in something for a change.
You know what? You are going to have to say that I can no longer be in this place. You are going to have to say that I can not longer have this person in my life. You are going to have to say that I can no longer be in this toxic relationship because all of these things are doing nothing but keeping me from becoming the person I want to be. If you are constantly compromising who you want to be, or you are compromising your values, or you are compromising your morals, then you can know for sure you have to take a step towards the better and that means leaving where you currently are behind. Stop getting stuck in fear and indecision and take a chance by making those hard decisions. Sometimes you will be unsure, but ultimately your life will be infinitely better as a result. I promise.
It all starts with you.
