I have some thoughts for you today, that may not sit well with you. In fact, you may not like them at all. But that does not mean they are not true, or that this discussion can’t help you.
My intent is to open your eyes to the biggest cause of unhappiness and frustration for many. Which can be corrected by one simple action. Which is as easy as switching a light switch in your home ON.
So what am I talking about? Choices.
Specifically, your choice to live the life you’re living now.
With all of the headaches, frustrations and other things that can make you unhappy. That leave you wanting more out of life.
Now, I’m not saying anything about the life you’re living. If you like it, and it works for you, great!
But if it’s a source of frustration on a monthly, weekly even daily basis… and you DON’T like the life you’re living now…
The fact is, where you are now is a reflection of the choices you’ve made in life.
If life is a struggle for you now… it’s your choices which have created this life for you.
If the life you live now does not make you happy… it’s your choices which can bring a life that does make you happy.
If you blame your life for causing you to live like you do now… you are placing blame in the wrong direction.
Sure, things can happen in life that are out of our control. But what you do next IS in your control. Because your life is steered in the direction of your choices.
Whether they are good choices, or not so good choices.
Did you know that setting goals is a choice? It is. And of course, some make the choice to set goals, and commit to making them become reality. While others make the choice to NOT set goals for themselves, and go on wandering around aimlessly through life.
What you do in your life is also a choice. And yes, sometimes what you choose to do may not work out like you planned. But your choices about where to go from there control your destiny.
Will you just take what life has handed you, based on the choices you’ve made in the past? Or are you ready to make new, better choices, that will put you on a path to living a better life?
Your choices are part of the Waiternomics Success Formula. They drive your Intent, which is followed by Strategy and Action. That sets you up to live a life of Wealth and Freedom. To live a prosperous life, the way you want to live.
If you’re not happy with your life as it is now, and you don’t want more out of life, you don’t want to make a better life for yourself and your family, you have made a choice also. The choice to not do anything to better yourself. To stay where you are in life, right now.
I get excited when someone comments on a Facebook post I’ve made, and shares with me that they DO want more out of life. And they’re fired up to go out and make it happen.
After all, that’s why I created Waiternomics in the first place. To help others do what I was able to do for myself. Escape the Employee Trap. And design and create the life you want to live.
It also makes me sad, to know that my message falls on deaf ears for some. They either think they can’t create a better life for themselves, or they are so deep in their “comfort zone” of where they are today… even if they don’t like where they are today… they can’t seem to muster up the excitement and drive to get off that couch, turn off the TV, and set themselves up to be happier.
So my intent today is for you leave my blog after reading this post, and start thinking about the choices you’ve made in your life.
And the choices you can make going forward, to create the kind of life for yourself that you catch yourself in envy of, when you see a successful business owner, a family having a great time together, people traveling and enjoying life to the fullest, and making life what it was intended to be… Great!
What choice can you make today to set yourself up to have a better, more enjoyable life?
