Henri- Frederic Amiel said, “There is no respect for others without humility in one’s self.” It takes humility to say “enough is really enough.” The question is, “When is enough really enough?”
Enough is enough when you can’t stand up for yourself anymore. Enough is enough when you can’t pursue your dreams, when you can’t pursue your goals. Enough is really enough when we can’t take care of our lives anymore. Enough is enough when no one seems to care about you. Enough is enough when you can’t sleep. Enough is enough when you can’t get anything done. Enough is enough when you are just existing. Enough is enough when you are bigger than what you are doing. Enough is enough when you are ready to move on to the next new thing.
But it takes real courage to face it. It takes courage to quit a job. It takes courage to start a new business. It takes courage to even ask your girl friend to marry you. It takes courage to do everything. Sometimes you just need to say enough is enough and be okay with your life. Because if you can’t say enough is enough, how can you focus on what is important to you? You can’t.
Before you say enough is enough, you must know why you are saying it. Let is be your own why, not other people’s whys. Love yourself enough to take a leap of faith. Love yourself enough to take risks. According to Cleo Wade, “Love yourself enough to say enough is enough when enough has become enough.” No matter where you are, what you are doing, love yourself enough to say, “enough is really enough.”
“Tomorrow will be like today. Life wastes itself whilst we are preparing to live.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson
The question is, Do you want your tomorrow to be like today? Do you really want to see something new? If yes, what are you doing about it? Are you planning? Are you reading? Are you doing things differently? Are you asking yourself the hard questions? Are you hanging out with the right people? Are you thinking the right thoughts? If not now, when are you going to start?
And to make your future the way you want it, you need a balanced equation. You need to focus on what will get you closer to your dream. It is very important. Do not just talk about changing your life. If you want to really change it, if you want your tomorrow to be different, you must act differently today. That is the only way you can change your future. Do not forget that your future is in your care. If you don’t take your future seriously today, when are you going to take it seriously?
