I find myself becoming increasingly concerned about the society we are becoming…lazy, self entitled, overly sensitive, argumentative, always passing the buck and beyond gullible. There is this mindset that everyone else has it easier, I am just unlucky and if I had the same opportunity as others my life would be great too. Worst of all there are many people out there who are constantly promoting this “magically fix your life” snake oil. I have to tell you it infuriates me! Sad to say many of the people promoting this crap are in the same field as I am!
It is time to wake up people! I will say it again…there is no magic wand. If you want to change your life I am sorry but you have to do the work! You have to take an overall approach! You need to focus on your mind, body and spirit! There are no spells, chants, magic rocks, oils or anything else that is going to fix your life for you with absolutely no effort from you. Yes, there are things we can use as tools to assist us but they are just that tools not magic wands. The only thing you need is a mirror! Look in it…see that awesome person looking at you. Guess what? That wonderful person has everything they need to have whatever they want! BUT that person has to be willing to let go of what is not working, make different choices and do the work.
Lets all stop worrying about what everyone else is doing. Lets stop trying to fix everyone else and focus on the one person we can change….ourselves. Lets stop taking everything so personally and start respecting the rights of others to actually have their own opinion. Lets stop looking at what other people have with jealousy and instead look to them for inspiration. Lets let go of the need to be right and instead focus on the need to feel at peace. You are the creator of your life. If you don’t like what has been created then make different choices!
I tell people all the time that I am not the tell you what you want to hear kinda psychic. I tell ya the truth! Yeaph sometimes people don’t like what I have to say but ya know what…at the end of the day they appreciate being told that truth (eventually…lol). So here it is folks…it is time to wake the hell up. Let’s stop giving our power away to others. Lets start taking responsibility for our own choices!
Your boss is making your life miserable…well then find a new job!
Your significant other treats you horribly…then get the hell out of the bad relationship!
Your tired of not feeling well, being overweight or unhealthy…then do something about it!
Your tired of living to pay bills…then downsize to a lifestyle where you can afford to do the things you want!
I know, I know…but Lisa Ann you don’t understand I can’t afford to leave my job, I can’t leave my relationship cause I love him/her, I don’t have time to take care of myself, I don’t want to give up my stuff…. Great! Then nothing is going to change for you. You can’t keep doing the same thing over and over and then get mad cause nothing is changing.
Years ago I found myself in this spiraling vortex of constant complaining and negativity. It was then that I made myself a promise. I promised myself that if I wasn’t willing to change something then I couldn’t complain about it. I cannot even begin to tell you how that one simple promise to myself changed my life! So now I am passing this little gem onto you…repeat after me “If I am not willing to make different choices to change the situation then I need to stop complaining about the situation”.
PLEASE for the love of God start taking your power back! NO matter where you are in life, who you are, what you do, what you want to do….YOU HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED INSIDE OF YOU! Don’t look for the quick fix! Look for the long term solutions! You are awesome and you deserve to have everything you want!
