Just Do It Already!

Posted on

I can’t stand excuses. I hate it when people blame their shortcomings on anything but themselves. You are responsible for your own future and your own happiness.

If you don’t like where you are in your life, you can change it. Unless of course you’re in prison and in that case, thanks for getting caught.

Its time for grown ups to just grow up already and make their dreams happen, that’s what separates “the men from the boys” so to speak, motivation and how far you’re willing to go to reach your goals.

Showing an unwillingness to change and learn new things and expand your own possibilities shows weakness of character and lack of motivation. Not traits to be proud of or even want to be obvious, unless you’re a comic and then even I’ll make an exception if you’re funny.

What I’m trying to say is that there is nothing stopping you from getting what you want except……you.

You can go through life being told what to do by people who do not have your best interests in mind OR you can make your own decisions, if you want to go back to school – no one is going to walk up to you and hand you a scholarship just because you want it. You go and you research available scholarships and you apply and you go to school. The one constant in all of this, is you.

So the real question to ask yourself if you find that you are not happy in any situation is, “What can I do to change this?” Then…..do it.

  1. I’m right there with you, I know so many people from our generation that couldn’t even define “motivation” much less act like they have any. We’ve been labeled the Boomerang generation and I quite frankly am offended by that label. I’m a stand on my own feet kinda girl.

  2. Girl, you say it so true. Without ambition, without goals, people allow themselves to be weak and to be led like sheep. It starts, though, by raising your kids with ambition. I know too many 30-somethings whose parents just let them run rampant and fail school, and now where are they? If they have a job at all, it’s low-level, and they might start school, but I have yet to know anyone from that mindset to actually graduate. The “if it’s too hard I just won’t do it” mentality of our generation disgusts me. I am just very lucky to be married to someone who sees how important ambition and motivation are, and how important it is that we instill that in our kids. :mrgreen:
