Have you ever dreamed about a better life? Do you ever feel sad looking at the sorry state of your miserable existence?
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you were better looking? More fit? More confident with girls/boys? If you were sober? If you had a better job? If you travelled more? If you had a better family?
Improving Your Life
At the same time, have you ever asked yourself what you’ve done to deserve a better life? Or do you just look at what others have and wonder why you don’t have the same? Do you blame it on luck, a poor roll of the dice?
There are things in life we control, and things we don’t. There’s absolutely no use fretting over the things you can’t control. None. Life will throw you curve balls – it’s how you swing back at them that defines your life.
If you’re an alcoholic, there’s a good chance you spend a lot of time feeling sorry for yourself. Stop it. Right now.
The truth is that you aren’t entitled to a better life, but at the same time, you owe it to yourself to do take action and do everything in your power to make your life better. And believe me, if you do the work, the results will come. Don’t believe me?
Start logging everything you do in a day. At the end of the day, mark off the things you’ve done that have had a positive impact in your life. Remember, just being productive doesn’t count – showing up to work, or going to an AA meeting don’t actually accomplish anything. – its what you do there that really matters.
If you’re the type to feel sorry for yourself, I guarantee that you’re not actually filling your day with things that will have a significant, positive impact on your life 1 year, 2 year, 5 years down the road.
Take MASSIVE Action
Start taking real, massive action to improving every aspect of your life – your health, your career, your relationships, your sense of fulfillment. Get yourself out of that comfortable routine of dreaming and living in denial, and do things that push your own boundaries. Write down lists of goals, and break them down into tangible, measurable steps with firm deadlines. This way if you fail, you can look back and see for yourself that you didn’t fail because of chance, but because you didn’t take the steps necessary to create change.
Your life will only get better if you make real changes. Stop sitting back and hoping for things to get better, and go out and take actual steps towards personal growth and becoming who you want to be.
