“I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said, than regretting not doing what my heart led me to and wondering what life had been like if I’d just been myself.” Brittany Renée
One thing I took back from the motivational seminar is that everything starts from within. The first step to change is the most difficult.
People become complacent to the same mediocrity of what has become of their life. The routine becomes safe…comfortable like a well worn glove. Oh, I like my routine. Routine is safe.
But it can also become pretty damn boring.
The path to greatness (and everyone has their own personal gauge of what they consider great) begins with acknowledging our weaknesses and finding ways to improve. Complaining gets you nowhere. It’s amazing how far we can take ourselves if we believe in ourselves first. Sure it sounds blase but it makes sense. We are our own harshest critics.
What I gained from the seminar is that we must believe in something, a higher power, a goal but in the end we need to believe in ourselves. When you look in the mirror what do you see? Do you see potential or a problem? What gives you passion? Is there something that interests you and if so are you doing something about it, to include this someway into your life? Could be your job, a hobby….you have to let it in because life can sometimes become so overwhelming we don’t have anything to hang on to. But if you have a goal, a passion for something it’s like a tether in keeping things real.
