You can go through your life pointing the finger at other people for your faults or look yourself in the mirror and take full responsibility. Weak, insecure people look externally and play the blame game. No matter what you are in whether it’s business, sports, school, and family do not be a victim of your circumstances. It has become an epidemic now to blame other people for your faults because that is the easiest thing to DO! Take full responsibility for your life and do not bitch about where you are. If you have had enough of living an average life, then get up off the couch and do something about it. You are not a statue. You have the ability to stir the direction of your life. Unfortunately, we are now living in a nation full of victims.
Poor me mentality will not get you anywhere. There is a someone out there who was dealt a bad hand and did something about the situation. They transformed their life through the times of adversity and did not wallow in self-pity. Adversity has the power for you to break records or sink you. There are so many ways to get ahead in the world today. If you are stuck it’s because of the limiting beliefs, you keep telling yourself and you are not surrounding yourself around the right people. Hang with the winners who have what you want and you will see that the conversation will be different. If you constantly hand around low energy, weak people that will rub off on you. Cut out the complainer’s no one wants to hear the bullshit. The reality is that nobody cares about your problems and that 80% of people are glad you have them. Do yourself a favor and turn your problems into opportunities.
If you have a burning desire to achieve success, then you will not allow anything to hold you back. Anybody can get it if they truly want it bad enough. You can try every shortcut you want but it will catch up to you. Whatever you do in life there will be an easier way out. The ones who hang in there are the ones who will succeed. What’s the one driving force that gives the high achievers fuel is hunger. No one can take away the spark from you once you have it. It’s up to you about what you want to do with your situation. You can decide today, right now that you are not going to be another victim. You’re going to set massive goals for yourself and ignore all the chatter noise from all the average mindless people telling you what to do. I know what it’s like because I started listening to all the losers come in my life feeding me advice on what I should do and who I should be. Notice how successful people are not out there willing to offer free advice. They are too busy getting ahead than looking to stroke their ego.
Resistance is good because it brings pain. Pain is the best motivator. When you start to feel a little pain you will see what you are made of. You can either avoid the pain and run from it like a bitch or face it head-on. There are plenty of crutches out there today that you can get hooked on to avoid any pain from your life. I got knocked down my Junior year while in college and had all sorts of whackjobs tell me to take these pills and get on this. Thank god I didn’t listen to all the quacks. Sometimes you need to take off the diapers and suck it up. It’s life.
Mental toughness comes from the moments when you feel like quitting and run on reserves. Please do not allow yourself to get lost in the sea of weakness.
