One Word is Making Your Life Miserable – Pride
February 27, 2012 Leave a comment
If you’re one of those people going around giving life a bad wrap, like “Life is a Bitch,” why don’t you go ahead and tell the truth about it? That perspective is not about life, it’s about you!
No, no, no…I am not calling you a bitch. I wouldn’t do that! (Well, I might but that would be a different post.) But if you have bought into the “if it ain’t one thing it’s another”, “I can’t catch a break”, “Every time I take one step forward I’m knocked two steps back” or “Life is a Bitch” theories , I beg to differ!
Life is a wonderful journey filled with unexpected gems that titillate the senses, pique curiosity and presents endless opportunities!
But P-R-I-D-E…that part of you that blocks you from feeling fully, accepting responsibility, being accountable and growing bountifully…Pride is a Bitch!
Here’s how you begin to change that:
- Allow yourself to feel e-v-e-r-y thing. The emotions you’re most afraid of feeling are the ones you need to feel the most.
- Be willing to take the ride that accepting responsibilities will send you on. When you own your flaws, wrongs, and dare to embark on the journey of making your NEXT Decision BETTER the entire world seeks to align with you and life begins to deliver wonderful things.
- Do what is expected of you – honor those in your space and respect authority. When you do, you’ll find that the world is a much kinder place. You really do, get what you give.
- Remain teachable. If you knew it all, your life wouldn’t be a bitch right now…know what I’m saying? Nobody, ever learns it all, neither should we. Life is adventurous because there is so much to learn and do.
Here’s a reality: life is as kind to you as you are to it! Regardless of what shows up – roll with it! And I promise you, life will begin to be kinder. It’s often more about how you perceive what is happening, than what’s really happening. 😉
