Learning to Accept Today

Self control sucks, why is it we want the things we want so bad? Yet we get mad at ourselves the moment we have at it.

Some people go their whole lives caught up in addictive behaviour, their whole lives with intentions to quit but never really taking action.

Life and its moments will never be perfect we need to begin today. We need to see today in a new light, free of attachment and desire. Free of the thought “I need _____ to be happy” (fill the blank with whatever it is you abuse)

We all have certain behaviors we wish we could quit; to bad it’s not that easy.

Most of us are conditioned by our environments; it’s easier to accept what is rather than fighting against the current. Whether deliberate or not, subconsciously we adapt to our surroundings making them our reality.

Peer pressure is impossible to overcome if you constantly are bombarded by people you consider influencers. These influencers appear to have it all going for them on the surface yet on the other side of the coin they don’t realize the harm they’re inflicting on themselves in the long-term.

Everyone wants to be happy. You see it everywhere, advertising messages of happiness; it’s what’s being sold. Don’t let anyone sell you on the idea of happiness it’s nothing you can buy or consume.

Happiness comes from taking part in the journey of life, its heart-aches, its ups, downs and everything in between. It’s all a lesson.

The lesson is to become one with suffering and to accept your life as it is. We can’t change the past or future all we can do is act within the very moment we’re given.

Act in the moment, don’t grieve any longer. Don’t let self-sabotaging behaviour control the direction of your life. It’s never to late to start again. It’s never to late to reinvent yourself and change the course of your life.

Start today, start with the intentions to make today better than yesterday. Make everyday better than the last and complete everything you start. Don’t live with resentment of “I didn’t do this” or “I didn’t do that”.

Prioritize with the future in mind, start taking action against anything that’s eating you away. Start scheduling time to do the things that actually matter and following through with your word to do them.

Capitalize on your strengths and refuse to neglect your weaknesses, choose to participate in the journey of life. Choose to grow and develop yourself into something. Build the strongest version of yourself.

Find your grit; find your purpose for starting and don’t let anyone convince you it’s not worthy. Make a mission statement, write it down, and make sure you see it everyday. Use it to remind yourself in remembering the reason you put forth the effort you do. Let it be a symbol of your journey, a reflection of the transformations that are and will be.

 

Progression & The Bigger Picture

the bigger picture

For some personal growth comes easy, for others it the idea feels gut-wrenching and the thought of even taking action makes us feel discusted with ourselves. Really, you can choose to live in the dumps because you don’t have everything you want or you can make a stand. Its up to you to decide today’s the day everything’s going to change. Decide that If you fail, you’ll just begin again and nothing can keep you from achieving what you truly believe is possible.

The lust for better achievement is something that is developed through continuous action. Not everybody seeks to improve themselves, not everybody is motivated to run a marathon or go to the gym everyday. We all find our own ways to feel like we’ve achieved something.

Video game developers take full advantage of this. The need for progression is integrated into almost all video games now-a-days. Our need of self-mastery and achievement fuel our egos making video games rewarding and highly addictive.

Decide your focus, be specific with what it is you want to achieve and what areas of your self you want to improve. Be clear and distinguish what action steps need to be taken to meet this accomplishment.

Establish a vision you can begin to work towards through consistent action. Dedicate yourself to action. Eliminate distractions but remember to have fun when you need it. Remember balance is key to a happy and successful life.

Analyze yourself determine whether you’re taking the action steps needed. Are you letting your emotions interfere with taking action? Remember, either way change is inevitable, choose to take part of the creation process or to learn to accept what is. You cannot be angry at something you do not choose to change. Begin to take responsibility for yourself and let logic guide you through the puzzle of life. Learn to monitor and alter your moods whenever needed. Find a quiet place, listen to music, get your pump on, whatever it is get into your zone each and every day.

Controlling your emotions means setting the mood for whatever it is you need to do. Get psyched up then get down to business. Remember to put first things first and to always choose the best rational.

Let go of stress, you’re going to fail its inevitable. Choose to fail putting your best foot forward. When you fall remember pain is only temporary – No pain, no gain – It’s a stepping stone to success so embrace it. Just breathe. Forget about your worries, let go of your expectations just be at ease with what is. Sometimes life can throw a lot at us but we need to remember to focus on the bigger picture.

Commit yourself; what do you have to lose? Are your problems really as bad as they seem? What’s standing in your way from action? Most of the time our problems really aren’t what they seem. Choose to see your situation from a different perspective. Learn to live in the moment and put your thoughts away. Don’t let the voice inside your head distract you from enjoying and being your best self.

You are the ruler, don’t let the tiny voices push you around. You’re in command of this spaceship, now take off and fly.
