Labels are limits

Labels are limits

While labels can be targets to strive for, more often than not, labels are limits. People define the boundaries of their lives and what they are capable of achieving by the labels they give themselves and those they choose to conform to their lives to.

Before you apply a label to any aspect of your life, make sure you’re not adopting it as a means to excuse yourself from personal growth, working on yourself, or doing as much as you are capable of doing in life.

You can get through this

You can get through this

Always keep in mind that no matter what you’re dealing with now, now is not forever. Repeat that. Now is not forever. Your life will change. Your feelings will change. Your attitude will change. And your circumstances will change.

Whatever you are dealing with now, hang in there and do whatever is necessary to manage this minute, this hour, or this day in as healthy & productive a way as possible and you will see that things will change.

Now is not forever – now is just a passing moment in your life. You can get through this.

When it works for others, but not for you…

When it works for others, but not for you...

Just because something works for someone else doesn’t mean that it will work for you – but if it doesn’t, it doesn’t mean that you should stop seeking something that will.

Don’t let your lack of results be an excuse for a lack of effort. Your life is your responsibility.

When something that works for others doesn’t work for you, it’s your responsibility to keep trying new things until you find something that will.

Challenge what you believe

Challenge what you believe

If you’re not ever willing to challenge what you believe, there’s a good chance that you’re harboring beliefs that no longer serve you. Or at the very least, harboring beliefs that are not a reflection of reality. Especially if you only surround yourself with people who believe the same things you do.

Broken vs unsolved

Broken vs unsolved

When a person learns to recognize the difference between something that’s actually broken and something that is simply unassembled or unsolved, the manner and attitude with which they approach that thing can have a dramatic impact on its outcome.

If you’ve ever referred to yourself or someone else as broken, understand that the same concept applies.

The situation sucks

The situation sucks

Yes, the situation you’re struggling with sucks. But answer this question:

Are you going to let it stop you?

If the answer is no, great! But then that raises another question:

If you’re not going to let your current circumstances stop you, what are you doing beating yourself up and making yourself feel miserable when you could be pushing forward and working on overcoming whatever it is you are struggling with?
