We all have pity parties for ourselves sometimes. Sometimes you can’t help but feel like the world is against you. But guess what? No one cares. The world doesn’t care. The world doesn’t owe you anything. The best way to change your life positively is to stop feeling sorry for yourself. No one cares!
The only thing that matters is taking action in order to get results. In order to do so, you need to take responsibility for your own life. No one else is responsible for the fact that you’re late to a meeting. You are responsible for the fact that you’re late on that bill payment. You’re the one that didn’t take the right actions to fulfill your obligations.
Don’t make excuses and complain about why you didn’t get the promotion or the raise you thought you deserved.
“Be so good they can’t ignore you” – Steve Martin
In the case of your career goals, do not leave anything to doubt for your bosses about raises, bonuses, and promotions. Outwork and outsmart everyone else to get ‘what you deserve.’
Same goes for your financial goals. You should know the formula for financial success. If you don’t, you’ve been too lazy to learn the information from books or using google on your phone.
Life is hard, don’t make things harder. Complaining to anyone who will listen to it, doesn’t change anything. Talk is cheap.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself. Change your life by looking in the mirror and being honest. Change your life by doing the things that will help you achieve your goals. It sounds so simple but you’d be amazed at how many people I know can’t get out of their own way.
