The Bottom LineJune 9th, 2014 | Posted by in Perspectives
In my life, I’ve noticed that most people go through a period of life where they blame others for whatever injustice they believe has been inflicted upon them. I’ve been there myself, more times that I care to admit. I think it’s human nature to blame others. But I also think that it’s unproductive–even damaging. Everyone has been through hard things. None of us really knows the life of another. Some people’s problems are obvious while other’s are hidden. On top of that, life is never “fair.” But looking backwards all the time, blaming family or even the world for our problems won’t solve anything. I am reminded of an African American spiritual titled, “Hold On.” The idea in the song is to not give up. Hold on! A line from the lyrics goes like this, “Can’t plow straight if you’re looking back.” In other words, moving forward is much more difficult if we hold on to the grudges of the past. Instead, work towards your goals instead of festering over past injustices. Forget or forgive past injuries, whether real or imagined. It really will make life easier. Move forward so that you can work towards your dreams instead of your nightmares.
THE BOTTOM LINE
FACE IT, nobody owes you a living.
What you achieve, or fail to achieve in your lifetime
Is directly related to what you do or fail to do.
No one chooses his parent or childhood,
But you can choose your own direction.
Everyone has problems and obstacles to overcome,
But that too is relative to each individual.
NOTHING IS CARVED IN STONE!
You can change anything in your life
If you want to badly enough.
Excuses are for losers! Those who take responsibility for their actions
Are the real winners in life.
Winners meet life challenges head on
Knowing there are guarantees, and give it all they’ve got
And never think it’s too late or too early to begin.
Time plays no favorites
And will pass whether you act or not
Take control of your LIFE
Dare to Dream and take risks.……
If you aren’t willing to work for your goals
Don’t expect others to.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
