You Either Do or You Don’t
In this fast-paced, high-pressured world, life is ALWAYS happening around us.
So many things are beyond your control – all the people and institutions and natural events of the world really have nothing to do with you!
But here’s what you can control: your own words and actions.
You can listen to your heart, acknowledge your desires and disappointments, and then let go and surrender to this wondrous, empowering constant of the universe: What you do is all up to you.
Success isn’t just what happens TO you or AROUND you. It’s what you do about it YOURSELF.
It’s the choices you make day after day, situation after situation.
Look at this relatively minor example to see what I mean.
Let’s say you’ve recently committed to running outside three times a week, but your town has been hit with thunderstorms every day.
What do you do?
Stay home and channel surf? Or go to the gym and use a treadmill?
You go out with friends who order heavy appetizers and rounds of beers, do you join in because you feel like you have to, knowing you’ll regret it later? Or do you enjoy sensibly so you can stay on track?
Seriously – these are the kinds of little situations that we all face every day. And it’s through making the right choices that we succeed.
It’s called going with the flow.
It’s not called blaming someone or something else for a situation that is out of our control.
So – decide right now: When it comes to taking care of yourself, are you in or are you out?
