Everything you don’t want
Is exactly what you need
What you don’t want to do, see or hear
Is what it takes to succeed in any form of success
Long term commitment, slow results and hard work
In relationships for example (and I know this isn’t everyone’s) but I see a lot on social media many people within a year of a relationship getting engaged.
Now to me that isn’t the long game, that’s still the honey moon period of the relationship where they haven’t been through any real tests, they are rushing results… (But then again I could just be miserable judging from the lonely side line)
Body everyone wants to lose 10 years of bad habits in 2 weeks
And become a millionaire over night
Nobody wants the long term struggle, nobody wants to be told that it will take time, they want results yesterday or they don’t want to do anything
So they spend time hopping from fad to fad, from engagement to engagement hoping to find the one thing to jump them success over night.
When it’s not on your doorstep
What do you do?
Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.
I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.
At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…
Because they don’t want to travel.
Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?
I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you
How far are you willing to go?
People say they don’t give a fuck, or we tell people not to give one
But its not that you shouldn’t give a fuck
Because you should
But it’s to give less fucks about everything and focus more fucks on the things that matter
Like who cares what the Kardashians are doing they don’t really deserve a fuck
When you could be focusing those fucks on say your health, or caring for a loved one
Some things need more energy than others and some things just drain time and energy and results in waisted fucks
Give a fuck
But only on the important things
Fuck the rest
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
No one is responsible for your happiness,
And your not responsible for anyone else’s
No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take
Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,
Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens
It’s all on you.
I had a cool idea for a post today, but then I forgot what is was, so now I’m just kind of improvising as I go,
Because sometimes we can just sit and think too much and get nothing done whilst waiting for a bit of inspiration
Or we can just start something, good or bad it doesn’t matter because it will get the juices flowing and something good may come of it
What stands In the way becomes the way as Marcus Aurelius would say
It’s a bit like when your feeling anxious about something, say a job Interview,
Well during the interview your not anxious because your there in the present but worrying about is in the future
So action helps stop anxiety
We can think or we can do
We can worry or we can take action
We can let obstacles stop us, or we can use them to drive us forward
