What are you doing??? Get your ass up and off your phone and get it done!!!
But first read this post hehe
Let me be honest with you for a minute!!!! I am sick and tired of hearing “But I just can’t!” or “I don’t know where to begin!”
In today’s society, we have literally everything at our finger tips. Rather you want to lose weight, go on a trip, change jobs, buy a new car, or get out of a bad relationship, you have to change your mindset and make your dreams come true!!! Yeah yeah, I know what you are thinking, “Alex, you have no idea what I am going through! You aren’t in my shoes!” And you are absolutely right! I am not in your shoes. But guess what, you are not in my shoes and you don’t know all that I have been through and my struggles. You don’t know all that I went through to get where I am. Most of you probably think life was just handed to me! Well, I have got news for you!!!! Nothing was handed to me, well except my first car which was $400 from an auction. I busted my ass to get where I am and it’s all because I had vision and I saw it through.
My parents did not have a lot of money and even if they did, they would have never handed to me unless I worked for it!!! My dad once paid me $25 for stain the pool deck!! My friend and I did it together and it took us 8 hours to finish. We earned that $25 each!!!!! When I turned 18, I made it a point to never ask my dad for money because he earned that money not me!!! I didn’t have it all but I sure as hell had parents who taught me the value of money and how to work for it!!! I didn’t even get allowance. That’s parenting. (That’s another topic I will blog about soon)
I worked seven years to get my bachelor’s degree while raising my daughter and having a full time job. I was determined!!! You can be too! You have to stop blaming everyone for your problems and start pointing the finger at yourself! Once you start pointing that finger your way, maybe you will do something about it!!! You may be in a tough situation right now but start making a game plan!!!
Start repeating this to yourself, “Life is not against you, life is for you!’ –unknown
If you need to lose weight because of health reasons or just because you don’t like the way you feel, start researching what you need to do to become the person you want to become. Make a meal plan, create a workout journal and start showing up! Show up for no one other than you!!!
You want to get your degree! Walk yourself into the nearest community college and sign up for classes!! Oh but Alex, it’s not that easy!!! YES IT IS!!!! I did it when I was a single mom, 21 and living on my own with two jobs!! If I can do it, so can you!
You want to travel more! Okay start saving every penny! Maybe you are afraid because you will have to sacrifice things you like to do like go out to eat, buy clothes or hang out with your friends. Oh well, if you want something that bad, you will do everything in your power to make it happen.
Whatever it is that you want to do and you haven’t done it yet, it probably because you have come up with every excuse in the book! If you continue these excuses, you will continue to keep dreaming and your will be in the same spot you are in today! We live in a beautiful time where if we want something so bad, we can get it with enough determination and guts!!!
I have a question for you; do you have enough guts to make your dreams come true?
