Are you happy with who you are today? Then why do you continue to do the same things day after day? Something keeps you going in that same direction, on that same path of dissatisfaction. Comfort, security, complacency, and fear of change are what keep you there. You will continue to remain there because nothing will change unless you decide to act and think differently. You know, there are so many things in this world that tell you that you don’t look good enough, work hard enough, or are smart enough… you don’t need your own mind telling you the same things. Let’s make some changes, and the only place to start is how you think.
Constantly hearing or seeing something can trick your mind in to believing. The problem is people get in this trap of telling themselves that shit isn’t going right. They create this momentum in a negative direction and it just keeps rolling. Eventually, it gets so overwhelming it is like you have to move Mt. Everest! The thing people fear so much is that the mountain is yours to move. It is your responsibility to be the change in your life. People around you can support you, keep it going in the right direction, but you need to be the force.
Don’t wake up and start your day in a negative mindset. Start every day the same way. Get into the habit of saying something positive to yourself in the mirror. Pick one simple phrase and say it every morning. Make it the first thing you do! Don’t turn off your alarm and immediately open that social media app. I know this is hard because I catch myself doing it all the time. It is not a healthy habit. So don’t open that app, immediately go to the mirror and say something positive, out loud. Do this, every morning, for at least 20 days. I promise, you will notice a difference. Like I said, if you don’t put in the effort then nothing will change. It is up to you.
