“Feeling sorry for yourself, and your present condition, is not only a waste of energy but the worst habit you could possibly have.” Dale Carnegie
Do you constantly feel sorry for yourself? By no means am I saying that feeling bad isn’t allowed but does it stop you there, trapping you like quicksand?, or do you stand up, dust yourself off and decide to do something about it?
Feeling sorry does nothing for you and your current situation. It only further keeps you stuck, paralyzed, and doubting yourself from taking action. Action that will allow you to break free and progress forward.
The best thing to do is acknowledge the situation for what it is but be resourceful and take action to better yourself.
Standards, Choices, Habits, Actions.
You have to own it! You have to take responsibility for yourself! No one is going to save you but yourself.
“It is better for you to take responsibility for your life as it is, instead of blaming others, or circumstances, for your predicament. As your eyes open, you’ll see that your state of health, happiness, and every circumstance of your life has been, in large part, arranged by you – consciously or unconsciously.” Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives
Every day you CHOOSE who you become. You choose what foods to buy, you choose what foods to eat, you choose if you plan your schedule, you choose to exercise or not, you choose your priorities, you choose the relationships you have, you choose if you prep your food or watch television, you choose if you go to bed early or late, you choose the habits that make you you.
If you do not like how things are, the good news? It is all you and you can always choose to do differently. You have the power to choose better food, to choose to sleep earlier, to read information that will better your health and wellbeing, to choose the people in your life, everything! The power is yours!
“The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior: A Book That Changes Lives
