It doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, in all walks of life your resistance to the truth can be brutal and your inability to accept that life is sometimes indifferent to what your wants and beliefs are.
Some limiting beliefs that can make life brutal…..
Believing that working brings you closer to having everything you want
It really doesn’t because no matter how hard you work, you won’t have everything you want. Life is not a one size fits all deal and every outcome in life cannot be controlled. Only by conditioning yourself to pay close attention to what’s important to you as individual and what’s happening around you, will help you make the best of any outcome. You may not get everything you want but you would have learned to manage your time and energy as well as building a more positive attitude towards life.
Ignoring that everything you reap in life comes at a cost
We all want the reward but without the risk. Right? You can’t get from one end of a country to another without taking a journey. Life is like that, you can’t get to a destination in life without taking the journey, during that journey you have to decide what you’re willing to give up to get what you want. Friends, family, your job, bad habits…..Look at your routine and ask yourself-“where will I be a year from now based on what I’m doing today?”
Believing that trust means trustworthy
Not everyone you trust is trustworthy! I can guarantee you that everyone reading this right now has suffered some kind of betrayal, maybe from a family member, friend, a partner (business or intimate), yourself! We betrayal ourselves all the time when we do things we know we shouldn’t but do it anyway. Loving someone who doesn’t love us back or building someone else’s dream instead of building our own is betraying yourself.
The cold hard fact is people will only be there for you as long as you have some they need when you no longer serve a purpose they will leave. Rebuilding trust after a betrayal is like trying to mend broken glass. But before you try putting those pieces back together you have to ask yourself. “Is it worth it? What does this relationship bring to my life?”
Trust is an essential element in maintaining lasting and meaningful connections with others and ourselves. By resourcefully processing a betrayal the lessons learned will be invaluable to your arsenal. The only thing that makes us different is how we handle life, no one is exceptional to the rest, we all work hard with the disappointment at the end of the day of not getting what we want; we’ve all want to reap the rewards at not cost and we’ve all been betrayed.
A beautiful life is accepting the indifferences and believing in what can be rather than what is.
