I Wish it Was Easier
Man, I wish it was easier.
“Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.”
That concept triggered a complete change in my life where I began to focus on growing my mindset and my general LIFE SKILLS on a daily basis. You see, too often I find and see people in life wishing they were in a better organization, company, and/or situation as if by some magic life change or miracle, things would be better for them if that change were to happen. They WASTE time waiting for things to get easier and for life to get better…….
I can understand this mindset because I LIVED it prior to discovering the wealth of information out there on Youtube, Google, and in seminars. I remember specifically “wishing” I had never quit trying to get into College for Orthodontics, wishing I had never quit college, Wishing I hadn’t even started drinking, wishing I hadn’t done cocaine, Wishing we weren’t being outsourced at work with machines, wishing I hadn’t moved back to Idaho and passed up that Dental Lab Job in SLC, wishing I hadn’t gotten pregnant with our first child before we were married, wishing that somebody out there would see my work ethic and worth, wishing that my wife didn’t have to work nights, wishing that I was fit and strong like my neighbor, wishing I had a job that paid me well that didn’t require 2-4 hours of overtime daily, wishing I had more freedom at work, wishing I had more than 2 weeks of vacation, Wishing that we didn’t have to live paycheck to paycheck, wishing that I could have more time with my family. If THOSE things would happen, I could then be happier. My journal entries during many of these times looked hopeless and almost always ended with, “Oh well…. Maybe tomorrow will be better.”
The thought I want to leave you with today is that the grass is green where you water it. Realize TODAY that you are worth it and in order for things to change, you have to change. This is my focus and I am committed to creating an ARMY of passionate people EXCITED about CHANGE.
