Hmmm, this is a slippery slope. In today's society, where we struggle every single day to cope with striving for perfection, the end result is simply...NOTHING!
Now that probably sounds a bit odd but the reality is so many of us are so incredibly scared to make a mistake that we don't do ANYTHING, thinking doing nothing will actually be better than making a decision and making the wrong one. I believe in technical terms its called Analysis Paralysis. One literally becomes unable to make any decision because the fear of making the wrong choice is so stressful, you make no choice. Or you feel it's not "perfect" yet so you can't finish it. GUESS WHAT? THAT is a decision! Yes, No choice is a choice. When you relinquish YOUR choice making however, you give up your right to complain about the outcome. Because, often in your absence of choice making someone has had to make one for you. I am often heard saying #makegoodchoices for a reason. IF we don't make them- SOMEONE will make them for us and we are FORCED to live with it! I personally choose to make my own choices -good and bad. At least I will rightfully own whatever consequences that come from it good and bad. What choices are hard for you that make you want to be a turtle and pull your head in and hide?? Or are you that person who says- WHO CARES!!! I am doing it! Ready aim FIRE! And Boom....Make good choices friends... but MAKE them!
Did you know that Mohammed Ali would do push ups every day. If he was asked how many have you done- he would say I have no idea, I don't start counting until if feels hard. Victory is in the resistance my friends! When it starts to feel hard, the magic transformation is literally right around the corner! This is what separates the 2% from the other 98%! These people in the 2% THRIVE in the challenge, the adversity, the change and the turbulence! It is the fuel for their FIRE! THEY KNOW whats coming their way by pushing through the hard times! Are you going for what you want, or settling for what you have? Tony Robbins says "Are you emotionally fit? We can only be free and successful if we accept adversity as a catalyst for greatness! Decide that you are 100% responsible for everything in your life!" You ARE the BOSS Applesauce! It's YOUR time to SHINE! Get off the couch, MAKE YOUR LIFE mean something BIG! Dream BIG! LIVE BIG! LOVE BIG! You have to SHOW UP... to GO UP! You have to GET BACK UP when you get knocked down! When it gets hard just keep repeating- Victory is mine...Victory is mine! You can't have the RAINBOW with out the rain people. Weather the storm so you can enjoy the rainbow! Where are you headed today and what's the weather like around you? #changeagent #bethechange
Today I sent edits for the From Grief to Grind book coming out next month. I almost didn't do it. Not the edits- but the whole story. Guess what- I chose to do it because it was for me. It was my chance to put a period at the end of that sentence and put an official ending to that story. Why? Because I am FULL of stories that are being written! GET OUT OF YOU OWN WAY!!! The number of times per day I hear about people saying they cant do something is simply- outrageous! You started- you can finish. Will it be perfect? NO. Do you care? NO. Get over it- even Jesus wasn't perfect so what makes you think you can be? If you were, you would literally have zero friends because everyone would hate you because they couldn't be perfect like you! Good Grief- spend some time today finishing anything you started and stopped. Then spend some time loving on yourself!
