Such a simple thing to do but it’s the easiest option available and best of all requires no effort on your part.
All you have to do is just stop what you’re doing.
You struggle against the odds to get things right.
Can you recall the instances in your life where you just sat back and the good times rolled in?
We often hear of the big wins, the good luck stories but we don’t hear of how much effort was put in or the bad things that happened before the lucky break.
Why don’t you at least have a situation where half of the time good things happen and half the time bad things? I think most of us would be happy with a 60/40 split, favouring the good.
Why do bad things happen in threes? Or so we are led to believe.
Why do we attribute so much in our lives to good or bad luck and yet most of the time we experience bad luck?
Is bad luck more powerful than good luck or are we just attuned/expecting it?
It usually takes a huge amount of effort to get things to go right in your life. You wake up in the morning and your day starts with resolving problems.
We are so geared and trained in this aspect that we barely notice it.
You lose your keys, the car won’t start, you’re stuck in traffic or you spill coffee on your clothes before an important meeting.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to pick up a musical instrument and just play it?
How about selecting the right stocks, seeing your investment grow and selling at exactly the right time?
What about choosing the right lotto numbers – not once, but a few times with big winnings?
And your relationship?
Does it just get better of its own volition or do you have to work hard at it?
Unfortunately, the above scenarios rarely occur in life.
They are mostly in your dreams.
There are so many areas in your life that you can quit.
Just stop doing what you are doing well and quit.
It’s so easy to be a quitter as it requires no effort on your part whatsoever – unless you are addicted to something or you’re a workaholic.
For interest’s sake, let’s look at one area to quit – like working – and see the ripple effect.
Many blogs advocate the simple life and how to achieve peace from having less. It’s a good philosophy as many of us are addicted to the things around us thinking that they will make us happy.
By quitting your job, your income will disappear along with your savings, credit cards and all your possessions. Food does not come for free but then you could join the line at the soup kitchen.
Once you’ve quit your job, and your income source dries up, then you’ll notice that any excess weight will peel off within a few months. By then your family should have left as there’ll be no place to stay, no luxuries, no food and best of all – no money.
There are people who have done just that.
They were disillusioned with life with all the corporate nonsense about success. They refused to follow the system.
It was a choice they made, and some are very happy with their decision – no matter what they appear like on the outside.
The above is a simple example of how you’ve allowed life to dictate to you. There are many areas in life where you’d never think about quitting, but what if you were forced to?
Do you merely survive because of the choices and beliefs you’ve elevated to god status in your life?
Are you really in control of your life?
If quitting has the ability to wreck your life in one easy step then don’t you think it’s time to make some changes?
Can you make a decision to quit or have the strings of life hanged you on the gallows of circumstances?
By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day. ~Robert Frost
