In this fast-paced, high-pressured world, life is ALWAYS happening around us.
So many things are beyond our control – the people, the institutions, the natural events of the world…
But here’s what we can control – our own words and actions.
We can listen to our heart, acknowledge our desires and disappointments, and then surrender to this wondrous, empowering constant of the universe – what you do is all up to you 🙂
Success isn’t just what happens TO or AROUND you. It’s what you do about it YOURSELF.
It’s the choices you make day after day, situation after situation.
Here’s a relatively minor example to see what I mean:
Let’s say you’ve recently committed to running outside 3 times a week, but your town has been hit with thunderstorms every day.
What do you do?
Stay home and channel surf? Or go to the gym and use a treadmill?
How about when you go out with friends who order heavy appetizers and rounds of beers, do you join in because you feel like you have to, knowing you’ll regret it later? Or do you enjoy sensibly, so you can stay on track?
Seriously, these are the kinds of little situations that we all face every day. And it’s through making the right choices that we succeed.
It’s called rolling with the flow.
It’s not called blaming something, or someone, else for our own decisions.
So, decide right now…
When it comes to taking care of yourself, are you in or are you out?
Comment and let me know 🙂
