WHAT is your WHY?
Life, if we allow it to, will become stagnant and repetitive. Do this long enough and an internal void will begin to develop--and metastasize much like cancer. You will turn into a bitter, angry, resentful human being who is filled with decades of regret. We often program ourselves to look forward to the weekend so that we can get away from our weekly 9-5 job, tricking ourselves into believing that if we can just relax for the weekend and get away from the demands that each week puts on us, that our lives will somehow miraculously get better. Here’s your wake-up call: You can’t expect life to just happen by sitting back idly and waiting for it because it never will happen---you have to make life happen. It needs to start today--right now--this very moment.
If you constantly wait for the right time, the right day, the right week, the right temperature, the right month, the right year---you will miss out on God’s greatest gift to you--your life. You will look back years from now and wish that you could travel back in time and kick the younger you---the one who is reading this very insight---right in the butt and say “Get out there and start making it happen.” I ask you, what is the point of waking up every day, doing the same thing you did the day before, going to sleep, and then waking up to do it all over again? Is there a point to this redundant behavior? Are you living your life to the fullest? Have you released your fullest potential? Are you happy with your current situation? Are you the best version of yourself day in day out?
If you continue to re-live the same day over and over--I promise you, do this for long enough and your life will pass you by in the blink of an eye. If you feel like you are caught in a rut, YOU have to dig yourself out. If you need help, by all means, start asking for it--read books, listen to motivational videos, higher a life coach/mentor, attend seminars, travel, do what is necessary to allow yourself to TRULY LIVE. By sitting back idly waiting for things to happen to you---you’re going to be waiting for the rest of your life. There are two types of people: those who wait for life to happen and those who make life happen to them. Living the same day over and over again for 80 years isn’t a life. Life isn’t about the number of breaths we take, it’s about the number of moments that take our breath away. It starts with YOU. The power of YOU can be more powerful than you can ever realize. It starts with your ATTITUDE. It starts with breaking out of your COMFORT ZONE.
When was the last time you spent a few minutes asking yourself...What do I want? How badly do I want it? It’s time to get rid of the “same s**t, different day” mentality. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that’s why they call it the present! Don’t wait until it’s too late to enjoy your gift. So, ask yourself---what is your why?
