It is a badly-kept secret that you’re actually amazing. I believe that with every ounce of my being. It’s one thing that gets me bouncing out of bed in the morning and psyched to work out how I can help encourage, motivate and serve you better.
But every now and again I meet someone who just seems to enjoy being miserable. You know the one- they moan. A LOT… their well-paid job actually expects them to log time on a computer that doesn’t involve Facebook… they eat crap then moan about their weight… they drink like a fish then complain about their hangover… they never train and yet complain they’ll never be like [handler’s name]… YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE!! I get them sometimes when I’ve put something really affirming and positive and they come back to tell me why it wouldn’t work for them. I feel gutted for those who’ve been fed that lie and if you’ve ever been the one to post something like that, you know that I can’t always resist the urge to contradict what that nasty voice in your head would have you believe!
At some level, even though these people seem happy in their misery as pigs in poop, they’re not exactly the most productive are they? They’re rarely the most successful and they’re definitely not the ones having the most fun!! They’re the ones who’ll tell you a thousand reasons why they’re helpless and hopeless and make out it’s ok. NO, it’s NOT! You were not put on this earth to be a victim, to be held down and to keep yourself down.
YOU- yes YOU reading this, you’re amazing. You’re precious, unique and loveable, and there is so much more to you than you know. But I’m going to get specific now for you, so here we go for today’s moment of bashing those mindset gremlin lies that have been holding you back. Are you with me?
Let’s get to it!
You’re an adult. You are responsible for your choices.
If a food was making you sick AS you ate it, you’d eventually click that this food & you are not friends. The same goes for negative & cynical attitudes. They hurt you at the time, they colour how you see the world, and they bring more of what you’re focused on to you.
TAKE THE HINT- quit those attitudes that are making you sick, weak and powerless. Come on, there is SO MUCH more for you than that.
Start fighting for a better attitude, LOOK for what is already good, start there and FIGHT to have a better attitude. YOU ARE WORTH IT.
Here are just some benefits of a positive attitude:
*you’ll be more pleasant to be around- let’s face it, Eeyore was never the life and soul of the party!
*you’ll see more opportunities open to you than you did before
*you’ll get more done
*you’ll be better able to cope with inevitable setbacks along the way
*you’ll actually be better able to achieve more too
*you’ll enjoy life more
*your health will thank you too!
I believe in you. I believe that you can be more than the sum of your current thoughts- particularly if you’ve never been taught how to CHANGE your thoughts and habits! Most people haven’t, you’re not alone, but you have possibility and it is my privilege to serve you and help you surprise even yourself with what you can be and do, with a bit of a work and a positive attitude.
Have a great day!
