Choices that are holding you back!

You know as we all move through this world we are all faced with so many choices everyday.

What to wear, what to eat, where to shop, who to vote for, etc. the list is endless and I don’t want to bore you cause you know what I’m talking about.

What I have discovered is that there are choices that we can make everyday that can affect us more than anything else!

Do you want to know what those choices are??

Well I’ll tell you in a minute but first let me share this bit of hard truth…. Life is really what you make of it.

Life can be great, terrible, hard, complex, and so many other things, but really that is all in how you react.

Most of us have a knee jerk reaction to most situations and we react hard and emotionally more often then not.

If someone hurts us or says something mean we go on the defensive and go into our fight or flight modes.  We lash out at the person or turn inward and pout.

So do you still want to know what choices affect you more than anything.  Ok here goes, when you choose to let others rule your emotions. You need to stop letting others have such control over you.

What you don’t realize is that when you react emotionally to that person who said the mean or hurtful things you are just giving them permission to have control over your life.

No one should have that kind of control over you.  You should be the one to say who has control.  Move on to Move up!

Leave those hurtful negative people in the dust and forget them. Let me give you an example:

I had an instance where this very thing came up.  Some co-workers left a mess after their shift so it came down to me to clean up after them and put their stuff away.  I was furious!  How DARE they do that and leave all of their mess for ME to pick up!!!  I was fuming and ranting in my mind of the injustice of it all!  I was ready to go to my supervisor and tell him all about it and then I was thinking of what I would say to their supervisor.  Oh I was ready to get some people in trouble.

These thoughts were bringing me down and really getting my blood boiling!  I was running it over and over and over and over in my mind.  I was spiraling down a dark hole of anger.  As I look back I could feel my whole body change as I thought about how wrong it was.

Then like a slap to the face my thoughts shifted and I was thinking of a great book that I had read The 10X Rule.  I thought of the wonderful author and Sales guru Grant Cardone, and one of his favorite sayings from that book. “Don’t be a little bitch.” (well actually that saying comes in the audio edition but he uses that saying a lot).  I stopped what I was doing right there. I realized I was being a little bitch.  I thought of the past few moments and how I was whining (to myself) that it was so UNFAIR and why did they do this to me and they should get in trouble for leaving such a mess.  Boy it was pathetic!!!!

Here I was allowing these people (and you know they didn’t give work a second thought as they left that day) to control me and my life.  I was letting them bring me down.  I gave them such power over me.    It was a very sobering!  How many other times had I allowed others to control me?

I shook my head and got all of those negative thoughts out of my head.  I pulled up my big girl panties and didn’t whine or complain to my supervisor. I just cleaned up their mess and went on with my day.  I felt so much lighter after that.

See we have a choice to let those things bring us down or we can let those things go and get on with our day.  Who knows why they left me a mess but I didn’t let it ruin my day.
