01 Jan Is this what you want?
“Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do.” Kathleen Winsor She was so angry. Initially it didn’t make sense, and it was hard to follow. Her friend had finished a training program, in an area she loved, left her job, and opened her own business. This infuriated her. Why? Why was she so mad at her friend for reaching her goal? She couldn’t understand why she wasn’t happy for her. It’s pretty clear, from the outside, isn’t it? Her reaction had nothing to do with her friend. Her friend was simply an innocent target for her frustration. Her friend wasn’t happy, so she took steps to change that. It’s funny how often we resent those that do what we wish we could do. We wonder, what do they know that we don’t? We ponder, why can they do it and we can’t? We lament, why are they doing it and we aren’t? You know why someone else has it? It’s not a mystery and there aren’t any tricks. So, why do they have it? Simple. Because they decided to do it, and then they actually did it. That’s all. You don’t need to monitor what others are doing, or getting, or succeeding at anymore! Stop your running tally of the successes in the lives of others. Whether it is about health, career, relationships, education, finances, a house, a car, or a pet, start looking at what YOU want in life. It’s time to let go of what others are doing, or focusing what they have. This is YOUR life, How do you want to live it? Be busy doing YOUR thing now. It’s time. ~
