There are two ways we can see life:
1. Life happens to me.
2. I am the creator of my life.
Not too long ago, I’d sometimes view my daily tasks as heavy weights on my shoulders.
What shifted everything? My attitude.
The first mindset is a sure-fire recipe for leading a life of misery. Some people think that life just happens to them. They feel like they can’t change anything.
When we believe that we have no control over our circumstances, we become the victim.
…and basically give up on life. What’s the point of all of this anyway, right?
When you think like this, it’s easy to feel stuck. It’s like sitting through a never-ending sad film and not knowing where the door is.
But some people believe they can choose their own path, choosing to be in the driver’s seat of their lives.
…and everything changes.
When we shift our perspective and believe that we can, in fact, create life exactly as we want it, we become powerful beyond measure.
The simple belief that we can influence and change our situation catapults us into a totally different reality.
It means that if something’s wrong, you can try to fix it. No blaming bad luck, your boss, or your family.
The ball’s in our court.
Suddenly we realize there is nobody else to blame for our situation but ourselves. We have the power to change anything if we really want to. It’s no longer about blaming anyone.
Suddenly we stop justifying ourselves and making excuses. We realize we are fully in control of our destiny.
We see the real picture: It’s up to us.
When we take full ownership of our lives, there are no excuses. There is just our decision to do it or not to do it.
Every choice we make – whether to go for that morning run or skip it – isn’t dictated by the rain outside or someone else’s mood.
Owning our choices leaves no room for excuses.
It’s all about our commitment.
Gone are the days of constant complaints. Why? Because in any scenario, we have three clear options: Change it, leave it, or accept it. Complaining is pointless when we can actively make a difference, by changing it, walking away, or coming to terms with the situation, right?
Understanding and choosing how we view life is pivotal to our overall well-being and happiness.
By realizing we’re not mere passengers but active drivers of our destiny, we open doors to endless possibilities and untapped potential. Our mindset doesn’t just influence our actions; it shapes our reality.
So, next time you find yourself at a crossroads, remember: your attitude is your compass, guiding you towards either empowerment or resignation. Choose wisely, for every thought we cultivate determines the path we tread in the grand journey called life.
