Recently the quote for Tony Robbins has been reverberating through my heart and mind. “”Life is not happening to you, it’s happening for you.”
I have realized that too much of the time, I take a passive stance with life. I have let others decide the form my life takes. I have allowed voices from the past, to continue to dictate my direction. Perhaps my own self doubt or my lack of faith that I deserve better, also plays a part in how things play out. However, this passiveness and defeatist attitude does not bring change, only excuses for why things are the way they are.
That is the difference in believing life is happening to you or happening for you. If you believe is is happening to you, then you simply make excuses for why things are the way they are, and why they cant change. “It is what it is!”
BUT, if you believe Life is happening for you, then you understand that life is an opportunity and offers moments to live and create the life, your heart is calling you to. You have hope and faith in the potential to be propelled forward and can no longer be satisfied to stay where you have been. You don’t see Life as holding you down, but rather calling you upward.
I am no longer willing to settle for the way my health has been
I am no longer willing to settle for the relationships that have come along up till now
I am no longer willing to settle for the limits and lacks that have mediocrially meandered in my direction.
I Am No Longer Willing to Settle!
I am Only Willing to Live!
