If your life “sucks” you probably have a list of reasons (more like excuses) why it does. Maybe it’s those mean racists at you job or your “baby daddy” (s) who won’t pay his(their) child support or maybe your Mom didn’t hug you enough as a kid. While one or all of the above may be true, you still have the ability to take your life into your hands and do something meaningful with it.
Below are a list of things you may want to stop doing so that you can change your life for the better:
1. You watch television so much it’s like a second job (if you even have a job). Television is just one way that many people waste their time and their life but there are many more. Basically, if you spend most of your time doing some mindless activity that adds nothing to your life, like watching television, playing video games or gossiping and spreading rumors, that might be why your life sucks.
2. You’re overweight and want to make excuses about it rather than do something about it. Have you ever noticed that people who say they have “a problem with my thyroid” or a “problem with my knees” as a reason for being overweight tend to eat more than most people and exercise a lot less than most people? Even if a person has a thyroid issue, eating smaller and healthier meals will still be better than eating a whole bunch of junk. And if a person’s knees hurt, they can lift some weights…walking and running are not the only forms of exercise.
3. You’re very negative. If you tend to see problems in everything, then you’re probably a negative person. The difference between an analytical person and a negative person is that the analytical person is looking for problems with the intention of coming up with solutions. The negative person, on the other hand, is looking for problems so they can use them as an excuse for inaction or to discourage someone else from doing something.
4. You’re selfish, self absorbed and self involved. In short: get over yourself! The most miserable people on earth are selfish people. Instead of focusing on how miserable you feel, get out and serve or go help someone in need.
5. You’re terrified of making a mistake. Fear of failure is a huge deterrent for a lot of people. Guess what? A lot of people who dared to try something new felt some level of fear but they went ahead anyway. If you think failure will surely kill you, you’re probably wrong but just in-case, take one small step at a time and do something small and then keep doing more until you’re taking bigger steps.
At the end of the day, you only have one life to live so stop making excises and get on with it!
