If you got knocked down…
If people talk bad about you…
When things don’t go your way…
THAT’S CALLED ‘THE REAL WORLD!!!’
If you live long enough… you will face these disappointments, because life will surely produce some miserable moments.
BUT HOW MUCH MISERY ARE WE CREATING IN OUR OWN LIVES?
How many problems do we bring upon ourselves?
How many disappointments are caused by our own doing?
My point is this… WE CAN’T BLAME EVERYTHING ON LIFE!
It’s one thing to go through struggles, and ‘chalk it up’ to life lessons to learn from… before moving on. It’s another matter to keep going through the same struggles, because you failed to learn that life lesson… while blaming it on ‘The Real World.’
It would be difficult for anyone to enjoy happiness… if they never learn accountability! Many adults live a miserable life… because they blame all their misery on everything but themselves.
The economy is to blame…
The job is to blame…
The spouse is to blame…
The president is to blame… (and you’ve never even met him)
The environment is to blame.
IF YOU REPEATEDLY EXPERIENCE THE SAME PROBLEMS?
IT’S NOT THE REAL WORLD… IT’S YOU!
Repeated failure is not a sign of bad luck… it’s often a lack of responsibility. But only when we start to turn that blame around on ourselves… is when we’ll stop causing our own misery!
