I was having a chat with someone recently about doing things in life and changing it up. It was brought to my attention that they were making excuses for themselves. What excuse? They didn’t want to get fit or healthy because they didn’t think their husband deserved it.
I know what you’re thinking. Really? Yes, really. All too often we make excuses that we’re not even aware of. Sometimes we’re aware of them, but most of the time we’ve told ourselves that often enough, that we’re not aware of them.
Why is this an issue? Why wouldn’t it be? We’re on this planet for one thing and one thing only. Ok, maybe a few things. For example: we’re here to be healthy, learn and grow, and experience all that we can. So, why is it that we’re holding ourselves back?
I think that a large part if it is negativity. Negativity is what holds us back. Even if we have plans, (big plans) we’ll could still have some negative thought holding us back. As Randy Gage puts it, you have to get rid of the negative thoughts and replace them with good thoughts. Only when the Positive outweighs the negative, can we then move forward.
Randy Gage on Youtube. Highly recommended.
One thing we have to realize, is that we’re hear for ourselves. No one else. We don’t have to please anyone. If we want to be healthy, it should be for our own reasons. To live longer, live happier, regardless if someone deserves it or not. We deserve it for ourselves.
Before you go bashing yourself with negativity, remember this, “It’s for me, no one else.” What are some other excuses that you’ve caught yourself giving? What are some tips that people can use to become positive thinkers?
Ever notice how people change? Some people change trying to be like other people. Others change for a need more or less. Then there are those who are forced to change.
I Choose to change because right now, my life is in Chaos. It’s Hecktic. There is nothing worse than being 30 years old and having done nothing with your life. So, here’s what I’m going to start doing to make it better.
Sense I’m avid about losing weight and even possibly running a marathon, I need to get out there and start hangin with people that already do that. So, that’s what I’m going to do. If you want to be successful, you’ve got to hang out around successful people. If you want to be Fit, you’ve got to hang out around Fit people.
Why is this important? Influence. People in our lives influence us everyday. If you hang out with Smart people, guess what, you’re going to have the urge to become smarter, and hopefully do just that. Heaven forbid the general population get any dumber.
Some people have family who are just lazy, obese, can’t get off their butts for nothing. What do you do about that? Well, for starters, instead of hanging out with the people just like you at school or work. Start making new friends. Have that desire to make changes in your life. Your new friends will respect you for that and probably will even help you.
Networking. I’m going to start Networking a heck of a lot more. People that you talk to and connect with, that’s what it’s about nowadays. If you have connections, you’ll go far. If you have connections, you can get yourself out there, become known.
Sense Changes are inevitable, why not start making your own changes now? No excuses. So, my question for you today is this.
What kind of changes are you going to start making in your life? Start today. Otherwise, you’ll end up like me, 30 years old, (or older) and not getting anywhere in life. It’s never too late to start now. Join me in this #OccupyThisChange movement.
