Challenge Status Quo
I want to give you a message of hope, a message with solutions, and a message with suggestions that help you positively affect those things that matter to you. Some principles you may never have thought of before, which is helpful to consider now.
What you consider now might challenge the way you think and feel about your life in the future and challenge the status quo you’ve lived in for so long.
Likely, you will realize that your past thinking, past attitude, past habits and reactions have created the status quo that’s challenging you to consider now. Up to this point, you hadn’t considered how your life is working out for you and if it’s the way you’ve wanted.
My job is to help you challenge status quo and try to push you out of your comfort zone! A change in attitudes changes how you approach life, work, and daily activities. Perhaps it’s time to risk taking a different approach to these activities?
Relax, you won’t be asked to do anything you can’t do or don’t want to do. This has to be about what YOU want and what YOU feel is important for your own happiness and peace of mind. You have my support if you want it, so let me help you make the changes you need to make to accomplish your goals.
Are You In Default or In the Driver’s Seat?
First, consider that it doesn’t matter whose fault it is or if you are dissatisfied with life’s situations and the problems — it is what it is. What you need to do is accept things as they are and find a way to deal with it in a manner that you can accept.
Second, consider that your attitude about life’s events affect the habits you develop and what you get back from life.
- In general, a positive attitude reaps positive responses from people with whom you interact on a daily basis.
- Life gives back what you reflect in your expectations.
- A negative attitude reaps negativity from people around you and a negative response from life.
- A healthy attitude makes a huge difference in your ability to make wise decisions,
- affecting how proactive you are in engaging yourself in life,
- and affecting the position you place yourself because of choices you make and the consequences you receive.
Did you catch what I just said? Let me break this down for you.
- Attitude makes a difference in how proactive you are in choices you make, and whether you are living in default or sitting in the driver’s seat of life.
- Sitting in the driver’s seat means you are making your own decisions instead of waiting for something to happen and then let it drag you down.
- Instead of looking at your attitude and accepting the lesson you can learn from a bad situation, you go to the same place you always go to when you don’t like what life dishes out to you: being angry with God, your parents, your employer or anyone you think has it better than you.
- Living in default means that, instead of realizing life sometimes hands out doses of misfortune to everyone and you are no different or think you are singled out for some reason, you just throw up your hands and give up!
- You develop a bad attitude toward those who have a better life than you when you live in default instead of being proactive.
- You blame people for what they have that you don’t and want, rationalizing that they had better opportunities than you without knowing if that is really true, and then expect them to help you out because they live better than you.
- Sitting in the driver’s seat means that, instead of forcing someone to make decisions for you because you can’t or won’t, you make your own decisions and take responsibility for them.
