I’ve met a lot of miserable people. I’m sure they have good hearts and mean well, but they drive me nuts because they talk about a great goal and then they sigh and shrug, droop their head down and trudge on to the next “important” but meaningless-to-them, thing.
I get it. Sometimes life is challenging and we all have days, weeks, maybe months when you can’t seem to catch a break. NOTHING seems to be going your way. There are dozens of actions you could do, but one thing you must avoid. Giving up.
There are activities you’re not very good at, and should stop doing them. Stopping can be a sound decision based on fact. Giving up is a decision based on the erosion of your faith in yourself. You really aren’t entitled to do that – you have too many gifts.
Do your future self a favor and heed Thoreau’s warning, refuse to live in “quiet desperation”.
There is something inside of you that you’re not currently doing. It’s aching to get out but your fear, excuses, or limited imagination is suffocating it. THAT is why so many people are miserable. And they think a pill, a drink, or some other distraction will make the miserable feeling go away. It doesn’t.
Deferring your dreams does not make them come true. It makes them become hazy memories. The solution is to breathe life into them. Thinking about your dream lifts your shoulders and replaces the anxiety you’re feeling in the pit of your stomach with something better – anticipation.
If this resonates with you let’s talk. I specialize in helping people find the aha within. It’s right there in black and white in the middle of my name. I get you back to acting on purpose, help you set your goals and maintain success. It’s your path. I keep you on it.
If, like me, you’ve met enough miserable people, please help me begin to turn the tide. Send this message to others who are ready for a leg up toward their dreams, because no one should ever be without a great goal.
