Get On With It

“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.” - Maya Angelou

Coming across this quote got me fired up today. I love it because it’s so true. Sadly most people don’t act as if it is.

Ms. Angelou’s quote might seem simplistic to some of you reading this post, but I can assure you it really is that simple.

You may feel like you’re the victim of your life. In reality you are the creator. Believe it. It’s true.

How you respond and react to what happens in your life makes all the difference. You may not be able to control everything that happens, none of us can, but you do have control over how you react to what happens. Are your reactions/responses serving you or harming you? Is your attitude holding you back or moving your forward? You get to choose. Choose wisely.

Think about your life and what you’d like to change.

What have you tolerated for too long? Now is the time to say enough is enough!

What relationships are draining you or making you miserable instead of building you up? It’s time to let these people go. It will be uncomfortable and scary. You’ll experience a sense of loss, but after a period of mourning, you’ll thrive!

What attitudes and beliefs have been holding you back? It’s time to tweak or replace them so they serve you better.

What have you been putting off doing? What dreams have you put on the back burner? It’s time to get passionate again and move toward something amazing! When you believe passionately in something that doesn’t exist yet – you help to create it.

This is your time. Create the life you want, the one you know you deserve. It’s all there waiting for you. You just have to decide and do it!

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
