For this week’s post, I wanted to reference my new Positive Thought, the picture of a lock and keys.
Sometimes, we want to give up. Why? Well, we become discouraged when life seems too hard to handle.
Life isn’t easy.
If someone ever told you life was easy, they were lying. Generally, most of us will have to work hard to reach our goals in life.
But, hard work is worth it. Once you finally achieve the goal you were aiming for, you will look back and say, “It was worth ALL the hard work!”
It is almost insane how you have the ability to change your life if you work hard.
If you don’t want to stay at your current place of employment (no promotions available, no raise in sight, etc.), no problem. You can update your resume and apply for another one! Or you can start your own business and become your own boss!
If you don’t like where you live (too expensive in your area/city, rough neighborhood, etc.), no problem. You can apply for another job (see previous paragraph) that pays much more. You could also apply for a second job to add more income. Another option is find new ways to save money on your bills and/or spending habits (see my post in two weeks 😉).
My point is, if you do the work, hard work, you CAN create your ideal life.
Of course, I understand not every circumstance can be immediately changed. There will be phases in your life where change is not feasible. This could be due to lack of financial means or even lack of time.
And that is OKAY!
But, remember you can work towards change when you have the means and/or time.
During this phase of your life, when no immediate change is in sight, please try to keep positive thoughts in the forefront of your mind. Come and visit my Positive Thought page and see which thought rings true to you and your current situation.
Don’t be discouraged by the negative.
It is easy to tell yourself: I can’t; There is no money; There is no time; That isn’t for me.
But, it is harder to say: I can do this; I will find/make the money; I will find/make the time; This is for me.
I speak from experience when I say, it is easy to be discouraged by the negative. So, please keep those thoughts positive and keep your head up.
YOU have the ability to change your circumstances, even if it isn’t at this moment.
