Whatever you do in life, whatever you believe.
There one common denominator.
You’ve got to get your shit together before you can help others, become happy or accomplish things in life.
All the rest are stories and fairy tales.
The moment you realize this your life will completely change. Own yourself by knowing yourself and realizing it all starts with you.
Yes, everything starts with yourself. Never blame someone if things go wrong. Blame yourself.
As long as you keep blaming others or keep finding excuses nothing will ever change.
I hear people complaining all the time. The government this, my girlfriend that, my children etc.
But never do I hear them say: ‘What can I do to make things better?’
There is an old Flemish saying: ‘If everyone sweeps at his door, the whole street is clean’.
That’s spot on.
As long as we don’t roll up our sleeves and take action nothing will ever change. The good thing is that you don’t need to change the world. By changing just one habit in your life, your life will drastically take another turn.
This habit can be getting out of bed just one hour earlier, but not to work. Use the hour to have a healthy breakfast, exercise, meditate etc.
Only this slight change in your life will make a massive impact. Consider doing two of these things.
In a few months, you won’t recognize your previous life anymore.
And here’s something else.
It doesn’t need to be something you don’t like. Start with doing something you like but be consistent. I know that many coaches want to get you out of your comfort zone, but that’s not the point.
The point is showing that the responsibility is solely yours.
This comfort zone thing is an entirely other matter.
So next time something doesn’t go your way. Start by looking at yourself and what you can do to change it.
