We don’t all strive for greatness. Some people are content to just put one foot in front of the other. Getting through the day is important, but it that all there is?
I think that most of us can agree we need to do a better job with keeping all our plates spinning. There’s a lot of buzz about work/life balance, but let’s face it; most of us struggle with the juggle. Special shout out to career minded grownups with little munchkins at home.
It’s still self-doubt that trips us up in the end. The negative talk we generate in ourselves can really stifle our dreams. Like any new habit, resolving to stay positive takes a while to get the hang of, and even longer to make it stick.
There are a million and one excuses and victim statements that keep us from leading the kind of life we want. We don’t have enough education. We don’t have enough money. We don’t have a significant other. We DO have a significant other. We don’t like our job. We’re too tired, depressed, angry… whatever.
Are you happy thinking about the reasons you can’t live the life you want? Or are you ready to actually get started working towards some life goals? Do you have a clear picture of where you’re going? Maybe you’re on your way. If you are, reach down and help the next guy up. We all need encouragement.
This week, try to identify and remove one negative self-talk tidbit from your life, and replace it with a new positive affirmation. If you think it sounds corny, keep doing what you’re doing. If you’re interested in positive change, give it a try. It’s free!
