Your Own Worst Enemy

By Edited Feb 20, 2016 2 2

Don't Let You get Yourself Down

"Today *is* the first day of the rest of  your life."  Live like it is the best day of your life.  

Tomorrow will be better than today.  How does one know that?  Just make it so.  If a person believes that they have a problem they will have a problem.  If a person fears change, when change comes he will fear it.  If a person has convinced themselves that he or she is unable to do things differently the person will do nothing differently.

Amazing as it sounds each person does make his own destiny.  Choose to get up in the morning or choose to take a left turn instead of a right.  The choices that a person makes creates a change in his life.  Each choice becomes a new potential destiny.  This can occur when a person loses a job, or when this same person chooses to eat at a different place for lunch.  Regardless of how benign the choice seems, it will become a step in the destiny of the actor.

Problems are just unsolved potential.  Look at a problem as though there is a solution.  Do not look at a problem as though it is impossible.  Any new thought, any new angle, any new direction, makes a problem look like a potential change.  When a solution does not come readily, think about it and create a solution.

Eat a Whopper at Burger King every Thursday and every Thursday the guy behind the counter at Burger King will be waiting for the Whopper guy.  Change Thursday up.  Eat at Chilli's, or Applebee's, or take a lunch to work and eat in the break room.  A change can bring an opportunity that would not have occurred under consistent circumstances.

No matter the situation, no matter the change, or the choice, it is up to every person to create his own life, his own path, his own destiny.  There is no one on Earth who has total control over any other person.  It depends on an individual to know that he or she has the power to create his or her own personal future.

It is amazing how many people complain about being stuck in a rut, and yet they continue to do the exact same thing day in and day out. They are perpetuating their own version of the movie "Ground Hog's Day". I totally agree with your article. Mix it up a little. Who knows what could happen?

You have hit the nail on the head. We have to look outside the box and challenge ourselves to do and act better. I know from personal experience that we tend to put ourselves down thinking negative thoughts like, I could not do that, I haven't got enough experience.

We all need to think positive and say we can do that or at least say I will give it a go. Even when applying for a job, be honest and tell your intending boss, I do not have the required experience but am willing to learn if you will give me a chance. A chance to prove yourself is a great start to the rest of your life. Confidence increases with success.
