It’s easy to get lost in the midst of all the chatter of what everybody else is doing. What matters the most is being able to have clarity and focus in your life. Comparing yourself to others is a challenge all of us face today with the influence social media plays upon us. It’s important to stay focused on your mission and not to compare yourself to others. FOCUS comes when you discipline yourself to be better than who you were yesterday. Be in competition with the guy you face in the mirror every single morning. You must be able to push yourself each day. Get uncomfortable doing things that you do not want to do. First, you must know where you want to go! If you have no goals, you will end up nowhere. The next step is to take massive action on the goals that you have in place. Raise your standards!!!!
When life puts your back up against the wall you must fight back. No one is perfect. Each day there are 24 hours on the clock to make the most out of the time we are given. We face so many distractions that are thrown at us on a daily basis. It is up to us on how we want to stir our direction. You can choose to live a life of mediocrity and regret or you can decide that I will not back down. Keep moving the ball forward in every area of your life. If you want to get in better shape, continue your education, develop stronger relationships, whatever it is that you want you must put the full effort it into it. You get what you put in. If you decide to take it 50 % today well don’t makeup excuses for why your life isn’t taking off. You’re your only limit.
Excuses are what destroy dreams and goals. Toss out the excuses! Don’t bother wasting your energy into what other people are doing. Gossip, rumors, criticism are all weakness. No one has time for a complainer or wants to hear one. You’re writing the story to your book each day. Do you want to get to the end of your life and look back saying well I wasted my time procrastinating and making up excuses? Or would you rather get to the end and say I squeezed out every breathing moment. You are where you are in life due to all the choices you have made up to this point. No one else has put you in the shoes you are in today. You are the CEO of your life.
Don’t let negative people try to chop you down. They are throwing their own insecurities on you because chances are they were too much of a coward to take the risk. Successful people do not have time to criticize others or care to because they are too focused in on themselves. You can always become a better version of yourself. Always set higher standards for yourself. Never get satisfied with the current situation you are in. Find people who are on the same mission as you.
You must put yourself first above anybody else. As soon as you start to let toxic, negative people into your life they will drain away your energy. Doing the same things over and over again expecting a different result is INSANITY. You’re not a damn tree. You have the power to move your butt and change the course of your life. There’s plenty of refugee victims in this society we live in today blaming everyone else for where they are in life! Stop looking at your issues as problems they are opportunities for you to get better and grow.
The problem is that there are plenty of easy temptations we face each day to fall into immediate gratification. You can’t decide to just turn on the switch one day and decide to snooze the next. Get your mind wired to attacking each day like you were going to die tomorrow.
Focus and clarity come when you cut out all the bullshit from your life. If you’re having a rough time with getting your life to the next level then examine what you do on a daily basis. Take notes of what your activities look like on a daily basis. This will sum it up for you. Add up all the time you spend gossiping, talking about the past, complaining, and making up excuses. Now cut out all of it! You have what it takes to live the best life yet it’s up to you what you want to do about it.
Raise the bar every single day! No more excuses. Cut the tie with your story that you keep telling yourself about why I can’t achieve this goal. You have what it takes. Don’t let people get in the way for what you want to achieve. This is your life. Take ownership and get after it!
