Time To Move On

You have the power to change your life. Without taking responsibility for your life, nothing gets done.

When it comes to getting things done, it is okay to make mistakes. Because without mistakes, you are not going to get anything done. And do not forget why you are here. To get things done.

If you are not getting anything done, then it is time to move on. It is time to be honest with yourself. It is time to stop chasing what is not for you. It is time to face your reality. It is time to seek help from other people. And it is time to start challenging yourself.

If you want to improve yourself, you have to focus on your own improvement. Ask the right questions. Take chances. Do not fear risks. Because if you do not take risks, you are not going to get what you want.

Remember that your job is to improve yourself. It is not to focus on what others are doing. What matters is what you are doing. And if you aren’t getting the right results, then move on. Do not waste your time. Because you are not going to be here forever. All you have is today. So why not make it a special day for yourself and for the people around you?

If you are bigger than what you are doing right now, then do not waste your time. Move on. Try something different. Move to another company, if you can do it. In his book Higher is Waiting, Tyler Perry writes, “If you’re not growing anymore, if it feels as if the walls are closing in on you, if your roots are pressing up against one another and its uncomfortable, if you’re not getting enough spiritual nourishment and encouragement, then it’s probably time to move to a bigger pot- a larger world.”

If you are not learning anymore, then it is time to move on. Before you move, ask the right question. For example, “Why am I moving?” Yes, why are you moving? Is it the right time?

Why You Should Not Give “Less Than Your Best”

Steve Prefontaine said, “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.” When things are difficult, it is easier to just give up than to continue. It is easier to stop doing than to start doing again. It is easier to stop living than to start thinking again.

Whatever you are doing, no matter how difficult, do not settle for less, do not give less than your best. Don’t!

Instead of giving up, instead of focusing on what you cannot do, instead of doing less than your best, why not focus on opportunity. If you want to improve yourself, real improvement, do not focus on problems, focus on opportunity.

We grow when we challenge ourselves. But before you do something, assess your own strengths and weaknesses. It is important. It saves time. If you can do it, do it. But if you cannot do it, then don’t waste your time. Because failure comes from doing what we don’t know how to do. As Thomas Paine once said, “When it become necessary to do anything, the whole heart and soul should go into the measure, or not attempt it.”

If what you are going for is not for you, don’t go for it. If you don’t feel good about it, don’t do it. If it is for you, then you must do it with all your might. Remember, if you want to be successful in your own life, you MUST put your whole heart and soul into what you do. If not, it won’t work.
