You Hold The Remote Control to Your Life’s Story

You Hold The Remote Control to Your Life’s Story

Morning Motivation with Andriea DeniseYou are in control. You have control over what you think, what you wear, where you go, what you do, what you eat, who you talk to, etc. Because you have control over so much of your life, you shouldn’t stress when you find that there is something that you can’t control.

Whenever something proves to be out of your control, take your power back by controlling how you respond to the situation. You can always control what happens next. Spend your time focusing on the things that serve you, rather than the things that put you in a negative space. Thinking about something that can’t be changed does nothing but waste your time. Be productive. Be positive. Be proactive.

Move to the next moment, and figure out how you can make things better. Don’t be afraid to ask for help either. We are all here to serve one another in some way. You don’t have to have all of the answers. You can control how you solve an issue. You can control who you go to for help. You can control who you help.

Life is all about choices. I know that I say this a lot, but it’s only because it’s true. You can choose to be down on yourself, thinking about the things that you can’t control or change. OR you can choose to be positive and focus on the things that you do have control over, and focus on the things that you can change.

Take Action: Decide to change your perception, and make the best of the things you have control over.

Are You Screening Your Friends?

Are You Screening Your Friends?

Are you screening your friends? You should be. People everywhere are friends with some people, because they weren’t bold enough to say no. I know I’m guilty. I didn’t even think screening friends was a thing, until I became an adult. Some people are only supposed to be in your life for a season. As harsh as it may sound, that is the reality. Read more

How to Create The Life You Want

How to Create The Life You Want

You may be like most people who want a different life from the one that they currently have, but you don’t know how to create the life you want. Even when some venture out to start down the path of creating the life that they want, if something goes wrong, they give up and retreat to their comfort zone. The problem is that people typically choose to stay in their comfort zones and complain about how unfair life is.

 

I am on my own journey of creating the exact life that I want for myself. I have been on this journey for over 10 years now. As you begin or continue on your journey, it is important for you to know that the things you want will change as you grow and change.

 

How to Create The Life You Want

 

There is only one way to create the life you want. That way is by making small, consistent changes. Life is not about making huge overhauls. Instead, it is about taking things day by day. Making one decision to take a step toward the things you want. For example, I decided that I wanted to lose weight. I calculated that I needed to lose at least 80 pounds to be the weight I was when I got married 7 years ago. 80 sounded like such a huge number, and it would be a long time before I hit that goal. So, I broke my goal down into 10 pound increments. Because I never had to diet before, I decided not to beat myself up. I started cooking healthier meals and snacking less, but on those days that I just wanted cake, ice cream, pizza, or cookies, I allowed myself to indulge. After a while, I ate less of the junk, because I didn’t feel restricted. I made even more and healthier choices. It has been a slow process, but I have lost 47 pounds so far.

 

Whatever it is that you want to change in your own life, you absolutely can. All you have to do is make a series of decisions that lead you to your goals.

How to Change Your Life for the Better

How to Change Your Life for the Better

Are you interested in learning how to change your life for the better? If so, you are not alone. There are millions of people walking this earth, wanting a different life from the one they currently have. This is not a surprise, because people, in general, are insatiable, and always want something more. That is not a bad thing though. It is quite normal to want something different, because none of us were able to choose how, when, or where we were born. We definitely didn’t choose the families that we were born into. The surprising thing is that so many of those people don’t actually know that they can change their lives.

 

The truth is, you do not have to accept the life that was handed to you as the only way that you are supposed to live. You have the power to change your income, neighborhood, education, body, etc.

How to Change Your Life for the Better

 

1 Make a decision

If you truly want to change your life, you need to first make a decision to change. Set your mind on exactly what you want your life to look like. Be very specific. If you don’t know exactly, but you have an idea of what you want it to feel like, start there. Sometimes, we focus on certain things, because we believe that those things will bring about a certain feeling. If we focus on the feeling, we may even get there a lot quicker than if we were trying to obtain things.

2 Get Moving

Once you have decided on how to change your life, and you have a clear picture of what that looks like, start moving in that direction. If you want a better body, you should start exercising, or eating properly. Start making choices that support your desires. If you say that you want to purchase a new house or car, it’s counterproductive to continue making decisions that will put you in debt and make your goal seem even further away. This doesn’t have to be an overhaul of your life. Just take it one day at a time, and make decisions that will push you in the direction of your goals.
