Playing the hand you have got

playing-the-hand

Throughout life, as I have matured my mentality – one thing has stood out like a sore thumb to me… there are a lot of people who make excuses and moan!
I’m sure you have been on the receiving end of someone who makes excuses as to why they didn’t do what they said they were going to do? Or moaning about their situation:

  • They don’t have enough money
  • They don’t have time
  • They didn’t understand
  • They didn’t know
  • They forgot
  • They had bad luck
  • It’s just one of those days…
  • The list is honestly endless and to be even more honest – SO BORING!

    If there’s one thing I’ve learned, both success and failure aren’t due to being lucky or unlucky. In fact, you can quite obviously see why some people are successful and unsuccessful. You are in the situation you are in because of you! If there’s anything you are going to learn from this post, it should be, “Things don’t happen to you, they happen because of you,” and the reason for that is because what happens in life to you happens to everyone. Any situation you go through, or negative emotion isn’t a unique occurrence to you. In fact if you were to write down the reasons why you aren’t in the position you want to be in, I bet you, everything I’ve got, the list would contain issues a successful person has been through as well. The only difference is, it’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do!

    It baffles me as to why people moan about their current situation – that is the biggest mistake someone can make! Why would you blame what you’ve got? It’s all you have! Instead of blaming your situation, ask yourself what changes you can make today that will make an impact on your life 1 week, 1 month or 1 year from now! Yes its true, you probably won’t see results straight away – but there’s one thing for sure, you will see more results taking action rather than doing nothing – plus you will also find new levels of motivation!

    If you aren’t happy with the hand you have been dealt with…tough! Start taking action today! The actions you take dictate your success.
