Complaining is easy.
Far too easy.
It’s so simple to blame the world and his wife for your circumstances in life.
You’ve put on too much weight.
You’re stuck in an unfulfilling job.
Your career has no prospects.
You don’t have the necessary experience or qualifications to apply for your dream job.
You haven’t been on holiday in years.
But what’s the point in moaning about things if you’re not actually prepared to do something to rectify the situation? I mean, after all, it is your life. You are the one ultimately responsible for your own happiness, successes and failures.
Because it’s simpler. So much so, in fact, since it allows us to focus on something to blame rather than looking inwardly inside ourselves. It’s a way to remove ourselves from responsibility for our own perceived misfortunes or inadequacies. It is also much simpler than committing the necessary time and energy to pull ourselves out of the bind we find ourselves in.
But remember…situations can improve and that includes yours too!
Don’t get complacent constantly complaining and cocooning yourself in a comfortable cell. You deserve so much better for yourself. Don’t let fear freeze your ambitions. Put in the necessary work and dedication as well as working smart and you will be well on your way to achieving your goals. To take charge of your life, that desire to transform your circumstances must trump your willingness to settle for the sad status quo.
Are you ready to be the true commander of your own life???
Great! 🙂 But how exactly???
Here are some examples to be in control of your own destiny…
- Don’t complain about not having a job or career if you aren’t prepared to apply for any. Instead, ascertain which field you would like to go into and apply to the relevant companies and organisations.
- Don’t complain if you are not fit or not in the greatest shape you could be if you are only going to sit and be sad about it. Rather, find a keep fit regime which is good for you (the gym, jogging, martial arts, dance, hiking etc.), be consistent with your workouts and maintain a healthy diet.
- Don’t feel sorry for yourself if you don’t have the necessary qualifications to get through to the interview stages for your dream job. Undertake some courses (there are some brilliant online ones also). If the courses are too expensive for you at the moment, there is still no need to remain stagnant. Read widely on the qualification subject you ultimately want to be employed in until you can afford them.
- Don’t get jealous of others if they are regular jet-setters and you haven’t been on a decent holiday in what seems like forever. Instead, save up as much money as you can. If saving seems impossible, is there something that you would be able to sacrifice to manifest your dream? Could you, for example, give up eating out at restaurants and having takeaways and put that money towards your holiday fund?
Don’t stay standing still feeling sorry for yourself. Even if you do small things to help change your situation for the better, you are still improving your circumstances. It doesn’t matter how long it takes, so long as you are moving in the right direction.
Cease complaining, take charge and become content. You can do it! 🙂
