Let’s face it… doing the same thing day after day after day after day… can get a little monotonous!
When we mix what we do in life with family, friends, schedules, co-workers, rules, and know-it-all bosses… even a lifestyle that we enjoy can slowly become an after-thought of routines.
We can choose a career… but we can’t choose the people we work with.
We can choose a neighborhood… but we can’t choose who decides to live next to us.
And we all know what they say about family!!!
By repeating the same routines, and dealing with unwanted people and situations on a daily basis… it’s extremely difficult not to lose the excitement, the joy, and the adventures that life has to offer.
So here are 3 ways to help you get out of life’s ‘RUT’…
1. CUT THE FAT OUT OF YOUR LIFE
Sounds silly, but those who fail to realize this… can never enjoy the real meaning of peace. Toxic people slows us down, just like eating fat everyday slows us down. And in both cases, the effects are so slow… we don’t even see it coming. You will be surprised to discover how easily you’ll move through life, both mentally and physically… when you cut off all that fat that’s hanging on.
2. SET YOUR SITES ON SOMETHING HIGHER
Throughout the day-to-day ‘RAT RACE’… we tend to adopt the same concerns, problems, and issues of the people we have around us. BREAK FROM THAT! Focus your attention on what makes you happy. Start directing your thoughts on what will improve your life. Begin to take out the negative trash, and move in the constructive thinking.. that will bring meaning back into your life.
3. BE PRESENT… EVERYDAY!!!
You can’t bring a butter knife to a gun fight! Meaning, you’re going to be attacked by the ‘Rat Race’… EVERYDAY! The same ole schedules, the toxic people, and all the distractions and nonsense… EVERYDAY! If you apply this once in awhile, you’re doomed to fall back into that ‘Rat Race,’ but if you want to operate with more enlightenment, live by higher standards, and improve the quality of your life.. you must make it a daily lifestyle change!
