Imagine not wanting to spend time with your significant other.

Imagine not liking what you see in the mirror.

Imagine dreading going to work every morning.

Imagine becoming anxious looking at all the bills you have to pay.

Imagine being stressed, tired, depressed, and anxious everyday.

With any of these, here’s the day you turn your life around.

It’s when you say “I’ve had enough.”

The day you are disgusted with where you are headed, is the day you will turn your life around.

It’s a simple formula really:

Emotional Trigger -> Action -> Results.

What are you disgusted by today?

  1. Your relationship – What are you waiting for? Your husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend to say that this isn’t working anymore?
  2. Your career – What are you waiting for? To be fired before realizing that you need to make a change. That something you are doing isn’t working.
  3. Your health – What are you waiting for? For you to fall sick/ill? For a heart attack? For a stroke? For an anxiety attack? For surgery before you realize that what you’re putting in your body isn’t good for you? Before being fat-shamed? What is it?
  4. Your finances – Are you waiting to become homeless before realizing that the path you’re on is destructive? Do you really need that drastic of a slap in the face?

The best thing you can do: This is extremely tough to do, but if you can, remove people you don’t want to be like. Surround yourself with those whom you want to be like, and your life will change. Be around the person who has the body you want, and seek their advice. Work out with them. Be around the person with a great relationship, and seek their advice. You see where I’m going with this. Having close relationships with those types of people will bring the best out of you. An added benefit, they will support you, encourage you, and call you out when you aren’t being yourself. They’ll help you get back on track when you fall off.

Additionally, always think of ways of being proactive versus reactive. Most of our lives we’ve been taught to play defense. To avoid bad things. How about playing offense? Be proactive and change your life for the better instead of avoiding bad things from happening.

Try it out, and let me know how it goes.

But know that ultimately, unless you want to turn things around bad enough, it won’t happen.

I am always here to see you win.

With lots of love, and gratitude.

"There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs." Staying Uncomfortable is the result of my mind trying to make sense of life, people, and the world around me. The fickle nature of life has made me realize the importance of being in the present moment, and that life is all about enjoying these little moments. As I embark upon this journey of spirituality and a growth mindset, I invite you along with us, to share your perspectives, and to challenge ours. Lots of love, and gratitude for being here with us.
