There are times in life that you hit an emotional threshold.
Times when you feel strongly that something must change.
These, unlike most others, are the greatest times of growth.
This is where the present feeling now causes you more pain, than the idea of changing does.
Anytime you need to change something, this is where you must go in your mind. You have the power to do this yourself.
It comes down to two main thoughts.
Where you direct your focus and what the current situation means.
When you control these two aspects of thought, you will behave differently.
Anytime you get lost, think about where you’re focusing and what things mean. This will always lead you to the proper action.
If you’re unhappy with a situation, you must redirect your focus towards what outcome you desire. This is the only way to move out of the situation you are currently in.
But where we all struggle to move from is the area of “alright.”
Things aren’t fantastic, but they’re not that bad either.
Think about your job.
It’s not the worst job you could ever have, but it’s nowhere near the best.
What do you need to do when you’re not motivated to change?
Raise your standards.
I know it sounds trite. But it’s the truth.
You must make a decision to no longer live this way.
You must redirect your focus from “it’s alright” to “no more.”
The term “alright” needs to be stricken from your vocabulary.
Do you really just want “alright” in your life? I don’t believe you do.
Be wary of the terms you use to describe situations and people in your life. Your subconscious will hold on to them.
The subconscious mind is a suggestion machine, and it’s being bombarded with suggestions constantly, so let me give you an empowering one.
You have the power to raise your standards.
There is a way, and your mind will find it.
If you control those two important aspects of your conscious mind.
What are you focusing on? What does this mean?
Focus on where you want to go.
Create a meaning that excites you and moves you forward.
It is only when you control these aspects of your mind will you begin to find success. However you define it.
You will be questioned. You will be ridiculed. You will be made fun of, or even believed to be naive.
Let those who don’t understand continue to live their lives of mediocrity.
You were born to be different.
You were created to be all that you can be.
You have unlimited potential, and you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.
It begins with raising your standards.
Entertain. Educate. Motivate.
