Stop Judging Your Life
I would like to share with you guys some tips that may help you change for the better, and to help you deal with change. Now, I can't tell you an exact magic formula that will guarantee you success, but I do know that these tips have helped me along the way, and I believe they can be helpful for you as well. There is always something to be learned from other people's experiences.
First of all, you are an incredible human being. No matter what you went through, you are not the mistakes you have made. You are so much more than that. The fact that you are here today is a miracle in and of itself. If people knew all of the bad little details of your past, the first thing that they would ask is how you are still standing. The fact that you are means that you are incredible and you are strong. I think it is important to start with that. You need to acknowledge that before you work on being better. Becoming better requires. It doesn't insinuate fixing who you are because you are not broken.
Too many of us judge our lives by our current circumstances. Sometimes certain things have to go wrong so other things can go right later down the road. We learn from our mistakes and we learn from our misfortune. Don't believe that you'll only be as happy or as successful as you are right now. You are so full of potential it is unreal.
Now let's move forward to change. The first thing to realize is that you cannot change without making the choice. Many of us want things to change but we aren't willing to change anything in our life. We want things to be different, but we don't want to do anything different. That's basically the definition of insanity. If you do the same things, you are gonna get the same results every time. You've got to make a choice, and you aren't making a choice based on circumstances. You aren't making a choice based on faith, or lack of faith. You're not making a choice based on what you think is going to happen or based upon your limitations. Not any of that. You are deciding that in order for your life to be different, then you've got to start taking the steps and actually doing something different. You can't just not make a decision. Not making a decision is still a decision. What happens when you don't make a choice is that life starts to choose for you, and life tends to choose hard times. Life chooses heartbreak and hurt.
Stop overthinking it. You've got to say to yourself whatever the choice is that you want to make. I am going to start eating better, or I am going to start reading everyday, or I am going to start working out. And here's the second and most important part. YOU HAVE TO COMMIT. If you aren't committed to the choice, the specific choice, then it just won't stick. There's not much else to it. It needs to be a real decision and not just some vague ambition that you have in the back of your mind. Be intentional and commit to change.
It all starts with you.
