To Those Who Are Stuck…
You might be someone who is stuck in a job they don’t enjoy.
Someone living in a town you feel you don’t belong in.
Someone living a life that you hate.
You are stuck…
I’ve Been There
Constantly saying “same old, same old.”
But I Did Not Accept That
I didn’t accept where I was, who I was being, how I was acting.
I did not accept “that” as who I was doomed to be.
I did not accept that.
I made a decision.
A decision to act.
To move forward.
To stare my weaknesses in the face and work on them.
A Decision To Work On My Weaknesses
I was weak, in fact, I am weak.
I get lonely, tired, lazy.
I get worked up over petty bull shi*t.
I worry about the little things and ignore the big important things.
I eat the wrong foods and hit the snooze.
BUT I DON’T ACCEPT THAT
I don’t accept that low standard of myself.
I don’t accept living my life like that.
So I worked on my weaknesses, by taking action, and failing over and over again.
Through this relentless self exploration, I developed discipline.
DISCIPLINE and COMMITMENT
Commitment is doing what you said you were going to do long after the mood you have said it in has left.
Discipline means when you don’t feel like it, you get your butt up and do it anyway.
I don’t care if I fail.
I don’t care if no one reads this.
I care about doing my best, learning from my mistakes and becoming just a little bit better today than I was yesterday.
If you’re stuck, I suggest you give that a try. Stare at your weaknesses…change them.
The Battle Is Between Your Ears
Yes, I have weaknesses. And Yes, I don’t accept them as fate.
Know that the battle isn’t with you and the diet plan, you and your boss, or you and your enemies; it’s not even you against the alarm.
The battle is you against you; you against your mind.
You must declare war on negative, unproductive, weak thoughts. THEY ARE LIES.
The mind will tell you that you’re stuck because of him, or her, or the organization.
The mind will always tell you that you cannot take anymore far before you would actually be stopped.
Do not listen to these lies.
They are lies.
Don’t Worry About What Others Are Doing Or Saying
If you worry about whats going on outside of you, you will miss the deep problems going on right between your ears.
The problem is you.
The problem is your perspective.
The problem is your attitude.
You’re Stuck Because Of You
If you want to get unstuck.
If you want to change.
GET UP AND GO. NOW.
Read a book.
Go for a run.
Call a friend.
Get a coach.
Get a therapist.
DO SOMETHING. ANYTHING.
If you keep doing what you’ve been doing, you’ll keep feeling the way you feel; stuck.
Get Up And Move. NOW.
