Every day you wake up, you have the chance to do something monumentally different. If you are unhappy with your current life, why do you keep living it? It doesn’t matter who you are, or what’s holding you back. I assure you, for every excuse you make, there are successful people who came from exactly where you are and still did it. Why can’t you? Because you are your own worst enemy.
Excuses are mediocrities’ 5 star prison.
You love sitting on that plush couch manufactured by “I’m addicted to security”, and the mundane repetitiveness of being a robot versus being what you actually are – a human being. Simply put, you love it there. If you hated it, why are you there? Be honest with yourself.
Speaking of robots
When did you think it was okay to trade in your humanity? When did you stop dreaming of being more than what you are, and when did that spark that fuels your passion to conquer any adversity fizzle out? Why do you exist like a MacBook? Do you want to be typed on, and then discarded when the next update arrives? That is what happens to machines, and if you exist like one, that is exactly what you are setting yourself up for.
You are a human being . . .
. . . And that makes you magical. Your ancestors started in caves and now they touch moons, utilizing tools that allow your entire world to be accessed at a click of a button. You are genetically related to every great person on the planet, and the knack for innovation is hardwired into your DNA. You can achieve anything you want; you just have to believe again.
That’s why you have to stop making excuses.
Yes, the world and people may have played a role in your failures, but you choose to stay there, and that makes it entirely your fault. You cannot control what happens in your external environment, but your response to whatever happens is absolutely in your control.
Admit it. You are your own worst enemy.
You traded self-love for external objects, and in doing so, you gave up your passion for comfort, your happiness for contentment, and your limitless future for mediocrities’ 5 star accommodations. Admit it. You are the only person with the power to sell your self-worth.
The first stage is denial.
After you overcome being in denial, that idea of a happy, better life that you had locked in the depths of your heart will start to resurface again. It didn’t die, it can’t. It was just blocked by all those things that were mentioned before. That passion for life still burns inside you, can you feel it? It’s there. It’s just not powered with oxygen. Instead, this internal flame runs on self-love. The more you love yourself and perpetuate it in your life, the more this flame will glow.
It’s time to glow.
