We often look outward in our hopes for change to happen.
We suffer through a job we hate, hoping things will get better.
We complain constantly about how we have no money.
We look at ourselves in the mirror in disappointment every morning.
We wish and pray that our friends or family will come around and treat us better.
We keep wondering when things are going to change.
We wait and wait and wait for life to get better.
Always looking outward.
Always wanting our circumstances to change.
Always focusing on how our life isn’t what we want it to be.
Yet, nothing ever changes.
We waste years – decades, even – in this pattern.
Letting life pass us by.
Because we’re not focusing on what we can control.
Don’t focus on your life.
Focus on yourself.
That’s what you can change.
If you don’t like what’s going on with your life.
Then see what happens with your life.
You might need to cultivate a stronger sense of self-awareness.
You might need to come to terms with aspects of yourself that aren’t serving you.
You might need to swallow some pride.
What are you doing that’s contributing to your problems?
How might you take control of your circumstances?
What can you do to better manage how you deal with those circumstances that you can’t affect?
Always look at yourself.
Focus on what you can do.
Let go of the things you can’t.
This will take work.
This will take time.
This will take effort.
It will not be an easy process.
It will be worth it.
You are worthy of a most excellent life.
Such a life starts and ends with you.
You’ve got this.
