So we all agree that sometimes life can be a bit unfair. They say rich men envy poor men and poor men envy the rich. We all come from different backgrounds or up bringing but what really matters is how we end the journey. We have people that are fortunate enough to have the foundation built for them so when you see them, to you they are lucky. We also have the type of people that worked their bums off to get where they are now. They were not lucky as the others, but they made it. We also have the group of people that, they have ideas and plan to make it but no matter what, they do not get the help they need,they are never lucky enough. And finally, we have those people that do not strive to even make it in life. They find happiness in their present situation, refusing to take that extra step forward.
Let us go back to the first people that are lucky because the foundation has already been laid for them. I must admit once in a while we tend to be jealous of them, right? When we look at them, it’s like everything is going so well for them. They have never experienced hardship before because everything is taken care of. I have news for you, IT ISN’T ALL THAT GLITTERS WHICH IS GOLD. No one asked for the cards they are dealt, you just have to make the best of it. You are the captain of your life so you can change your situation, with the right actions and attitude.
Why not be the one who will lay the foundation for your generation? You do not have to look up to anyone or be discouraged because some one has more than you. A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step. All the successful people you see,made so many sacrifices to be where they are now and have what they have now.Take responsibility of your future and more importantly, have faith in it. If you truly want to make it,you will start digging to know what to do and stop hating on peoples fortune…If it is a generational curse – seek spiritual help, if it is your own laziness; get your bum off the couch! Time is ticking.
“The truth about willpower”
Willpower is that thing we are always in battle with. On a scale of 1 to 10 what will you rate your willpower? My willpower will probably be a 6. Based on the fact that when I put my mind to achieve something, I achieve it but along the way I get distracted. I get distracted a lot especially when it comes to food and well, men. I go all the way if I am very focused on what I want to achieve. It is hard for me to let go my willpower because I tend to look at what I have to deal with as a negative thing. Therefore, the zeal to overcome that negative thing gives me the strongest willpower to go all the way. I have gone through a couple of situations that I have actually been good with my willpower. If I did not have that strong willpower, I feel I would not have succeeded. Yours will probably be different.
Everybody has a challenge in their lives that definitely requires willpower to overcome. The most challenging one in a lot of people’s life at the moment is the willpower to say no to junk food. As much as we all want to say NO to it, you tend too see yourself getting caught up in it. The fact that it taste good, quick to get, and also your friends love it is not helping matters. I personally always fall short when I am with my friends.
“Willpower is like a muscle – the more you use it, the stronger it gets,” Dr. Martin Ginis said. “Try to resist having that extra piece of cake.” Some of the ways you can begin to strengthen your willpower muscle is by:
- Always have your own food with you whenever you go to work or school in order for not to be tempted and go to a fast food.
- Stay away from fast foods.
- Have snacks with you all the time so that you can munch on when you crave for junk food.
- Exercise more often to be in shape.
- Have friends that are very determined in life to push you when you need encouragement.
- Anticipate and plan for your times of low self-control by regularly challenging yourself to tasks that test your self-control.
- Have a positive attitude towards everything.
- Visualize success even when it seems all is not well.
