Do you ever just stop to smell the roses?
Do you stop worrying about having a bigger house? Nicer car? Do you ever just decide to reset, focus on yourself instead of focusing on getting things?
This something I’ve noticed a lot of clients struggling with. They see this as a away to get the “stuff” that they want.
If I just do this, this, and that, It’ll all be perfect and I’ll be able to get this, this, and that.
The goal of self improvement isn’t to acquire things, it’s to do as it states: improve yourself.
We pollute our minds with trying to keep up with the joneses, jealousy, greed, bitterness, when we should be grateful for what we have, and for the opportunity that we have to improve our lot. What others have should never be your concern.
If you want to improve your life, have a bigger house, nicer car, first begin on focusing on you. What is it about you that’s preventing you from achieving your goals?
Stop focusing on what you don’t have. Right now.
Reset. Stop to smell the roses. Be grateful for what you have. And from there, build yourself back up and become a master of what you want to achieve.
No one is taught any of this in school, or by their parents. These are hard lessons we have to learn as we grow older.
Most importantly, watch your inner conversation. Watch what you say to yourself. Negative thoughts are like dirty shoes in your house; they will make a mess and it’ll be a pain to clean up.
