When I saw this poster I thought to myself, “Wow, this really says it all”. So how do we leave the life we don’t want? I believe the first step is creating a vision. What is the life you want? What type of work do you want to do? What do you want to look like? How do you want to feel? Where do you want to live? and so forth. Once you have a vision you have something to reach for.

Next I believe you have to view the life you want as a life that you are worthy of, that you deserve. You have to give yourself permission to live a better life, to walk in your vision.

Then  you have to put one foot in front of the other and start taking small steps towards reaching your new vision for your life. Step out of your comfort zone, allow yourself to grow. If you fear something confront it! Remove the words “I CAN’T” from  your vocabulary. You are capable of more than you know.

Remove the negative nellies from your vocabulary!Think positive. When we constantly look in the mirror and tell ourselves we can’t then, well sadly we can’t. When we look in the mirror and say we are ugly, fat, or can never be loved, well that becomes what we portray to the world and then guess what it becomes true to us. What we speak into our lives in some ways makes us who we are because the more we say it the more we believe it and the more we believe it the more we live it. We have to speak life into our lives, not death.

Remove the energy sucking vampires from your life. There are many people out there disguised as friends but who are really there only to make sure you stay in the pity party with them. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result (I forget who said this). This means to make a change you must change your actions, your thought process, the people you are hanging around, your environment ect. Whatever it is that is keeping you in the slump you are in. Whatever is stealing your vision from you, it’s time to cut loose.

If we focus on taking one step in front of the other, I like to say baby steps we will one day very soon realize we are walking in our vision for our life. We will see that what we thought was impossible really was never impossible we were simply standing in our own way to fulfilling the life we should have always been living.

So my challenge to you today is to get out of your own way and start living the life you know you have always wanted. If you feel like you don’t have a dream or a vision I promise you do. Think about what your passion is, what you enjoy doing, what makes you happy, who makes you happy. When you focus on the positive your vision will begin to emerge and you will realize it wasn’t that you didn’t have a dream it was that all the negativity all the garbage in your life had buried it.

Don’t waste another day thinking it’s impossible, realize that you have the power to change your life. Make the impossible possible, live your dream, reach for your vision, and find your happiness.

    • Thank you Wendell…people are so afraid of change but more often than not it is a beautiful thing. The gentleman in the commercial used to go to church with me and he has an amazing story and is a strong man of God. Love that the life God gave him is touching so many people.

      • LOL okay ignore the second half of my comment. When you mentioned Nike I was thinking I had posted my friends video who works as the Director of Innovation for Digital Support at Nike and I guess I forgot to post that on the end of it like I had meant to. 🙂 I will try and post it a little latter since I bauched that one up lol So umm yes I agree Like the Nike commercial, “Just Do It”.

  1. Leaving the life I didn’t want was a great boost towards the life I am now living, the one I want. Great post! I wish more people could see how leaving what you don’t like out of your life that so much more can improve. It’s a message I would like to see more often.
