Yep. This about sums up my blog for this week. DO SOMETHING.
So many of us just sit back hoping things will happen, hoping we will get another job or order, hoping that what we want will happen. I’m guilty of it. We constantly throw out examples of things we want to have changed or done differently. We throw out our issues to everyone else to get it off our chest. But what gets done?
Truth is.. that rarely happens. So DO SOMETHING about it. Make it happen. Make it so.
You want to do less lender work or want to make more money to take your family on a trip… DO SOMETHING about it.
DO SOMETHING about all those things on your list you haven’t gotten to. DO SOMETHING about the issues you have in your personal or work life. They aren’t going to just magically disappear.
DO SOMETHING that will have you feeling better about yourself at the end of the day, or week or month. Even if its just something small, DOING SOMETHING at least shows you tried.
DO SOMETHING. It’s not hard to do. You just have to be WILLING to do it.
If you aren’t willing to DO SOMETHING about it then you shouldn’t complain. You shouldn’t complain about how unfair it is or how it’s not right. Get involved. Become a voice or become someone willing to help make things happen.
DO SOMETHING.. now, later or in the future when you know what it is you want to happen.
I’ve been through a ton of shit in my 45 yrs on this earth and I always just wanted shit to happen for me. I blamed everyone but myself when that shit didn’t happen for me. Then I started to DO SOMETHING about the issues and things I had in front of me and things started to change. Many for the good but some still unresolved, however I will still try and DO SOMETHING about them. Yes I have found a new path and yes I will continue down it. All of my complaining did absolutely NOTHING! It made me look good however it did nothing else. I was back to square one…
If you yourself don’t DO SOMETHING about it .. then why should you expect anyone else to or for those things to be resolved? At least if you tried and if the results aren’t what you expected, then maybe you need to DO SOMETHING MORE!
Go back to my first blog on CHANGE.. Then think about what it is you can change and what you cant. For the things you cant personally change.. What can you do to help make that change?
I’m not here to preach to you. I can only give you my thoughts on this. I can give you my experience. After all this is my blog and my thoughts. Its up to you to do the hard work.
Ill leave you with a favorite quote of mine from the book ” The subtle art of not giving a fuck”.
“Self-improvement is really about prioritizing better values, choosing better things to give a fuck about. Because when you give better fucks, you get better problems. And when you get better problems, you get a better life.”
So DO SOMETHING to create better problems in your life.
