Life is about keeping things in perspective.
Where is your focus?
Where we are in Louisville, it’s pretty gray in the winter … more gray than sun. And lately I’ve noticed more people complaining about the weather …
“It’s SOOOO gray, I just want to crawl back into bed…”
“It’s SOOO cold, I can’t leave my house…”
"I CAN'T exercise today, I NEED the sun for that…"
And so on.
But if you choose to live in this area, where it is always pretty gray in the winter, what is complaining about it going to do?
Surely won't change the weather. Don't get me wrong, sun would be nice … but complaining about it won't make it happen.
It reminds me about people who are addicted to the news.
You turn it on and hear about the debt. The unemployment is higher than ever. Health care debates – one side thinks it’s the greatest thing in the world, the other thinks it’s going to be the end of the world.
I'm not saying you should be unaware of current events, but just curious how that helps YOUR future?
Take time for YOU – worrying about problems takes time away from creating solutions.
You likely have heard the story how many super successful people started their businesses in a “down” economy – Bill Gates, Richard Branson, and many others.
They didn’t focus on how everything in the world wasn’t going their way – they created their way!
How does this apply to YOU?
If you’re always focusing on “My body will NEVER look good…” or “I will NEVER be able to wear XYZ…” etc, then you’re right, you won’t.
Put on your blinders like a horse racing in the Kentucky Derby and forge ahead towards your goals.
You are the only person who can create your future — if you're waiting for the "perfect day" or "perfect time" to do something, it's going to be awhile.
