“Today and every day you will be tempted to let your circumstances define you”
Today. Just for today let’s ask ourselves this, how do my circumstances define me? How does the way we think about our circumstances effect the way we live, and move about in our daily life? Simple questions deserve simple answers, right? Well that’s easier said than done, but let’s give it a shot!
“We cannot choose our external circumstances,
but we can always choose how to respond to them.”
Ever had an idea or goal, something that you could see yourself doing now, tomorrow, or even the next day? Maybe it was something as simple as waking up at 7am just to get in a 10-15-minute workout before work. It could have been to start eating heathier so you could hit that specific weight you’ve been trying to hit for years now, and for some odd reason just wasn’t able to. Maybe your main goal was to end an addiction? Whatever it may be, have you really ever sat down with your thoughts, and asked, “what’s that really annoying thing in my head that’s hindering my progress?” “What’s stopping me from moving forward and “just doing it?” Looking for the answer?
The Inner Critic is something like a virus that’s programmed in your head. A serious virus, and a real one! It’s been there since you first came out of the womb. Since you gave your first breath here on this beautiful Earth. Your inner critic has been destroying your life from the get go. And its sneaky, very sneaky, yet at the same time right in front of your face. Jeez, I got chill bumps just typing that haha. But lets get back on topic..
So. How “innocent” is this pandemic?
“Well, I can’t because of…”
“I would try this, but…”
“Today was the day I was going to change this, but didn’t because of…”
“I have an opportunity at this new job, but…”
Sounds familiar? It’s when you start to try something new that your inner critic is the strongest. It’s that little voice in your head that’s saying you can’t do it. It’s saying..“I’m never going to make it out of here what was I thinking?” “I have 4 kids how could I possibly afford a stable lifestyle?” “How can I achieve my goals if I don’t have the recourses to do so?” “My situation tells me that i have to stay where I am, because there is nothing else out there for me other than working a 9-5 and struggling to make ends meet.”
I’m here to tell you that none of these self-limiting beliefs are true. All things are possible, you can and will do anything that you put your mind to. In order to progress and move forward in life, you have to defeat this way of thinking. It starts with believing in and working on your inner self. It all starts with you. If you believe your circumstances hold you back it will.
“If you let your circumstances define you, they’ll defeat you” -unknown
Can you name one legend, that was held back by their circumstances? I’ll wait… Nope, because there aren’t any. Change your mindset, work on yourself (your inner self), and you will change your life. Tell yourself this: “My circumstances don’t make me, I make IT!” That no matter how hard of a curve ball life throws at you, you will always find a way to overcome it and hit a home run.
What is it you want to change today? What is that one thing you have been itching to change, and what’s that one critical mistake your making that is keeping you from making that change? See it, address it, Change!
Were all in this together. Find your Inner Peace. Have faith
