Life Is What You Make It

 


In our modern-day microwave society where, instant gratification has become the new normal for many, it’s not surprising that there’s a substantial cost associated to life and our environment. With obesity on the rise ask yourself why is it we see more and more advertising of fast food, followed by the convenience of home delivery.

With the current lockdown in place where we find more and more people working from home. No longer doing the daily commute to and from work, food on tap, drink on tap, telly on tap and the bombardment of negative news let’s not be surprised to find out that the mortality rate has gone up. Coincidence I think not.


Life is what you make it. What you put up with, you end up with. There are and continue to be many changes as we live our day to day lives. New restrictions as to how we do much of what we all took for granted and the consequence, anxiety, depression, isolation, mental and physical abuse, the loss of livelihoods resulting in far too many cases of death and destruction. 

 You see what you tolerate has an uncanny knack of coming around and biting you on the rear end. In a relationship If you tolerate cheating of any kind, there’s no reason for your partner to stop. Likewise, with degrading language, you will get used to it and come to expect vulgar words in your presence. If you tolerate people interfering in your relationship, you will start to resent friends and family.


From a work perspective, if you tolerate low quality work, there’s no reason for anyone to want to do business with you. If you tolerate tardiness, you allow a lazy, disrespectful precedent to be set that is detrimental to your reputation. Entertaining procrastination, you will find it becoming a self-defeating habit which weakens you physically and psychologically. And lastly If you tolerate lies, deceit and manipulation from the media or any government agency you endorse the behaviour and give it the green light to continue.

What’s the solution? You raise your standards. In the words of Nelson Mandela “Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.” It’s about working from your power and not your pain.


Become your own cheerleader, be mindful of what you say when you talk to yourself, speak life. As from today never let anyone determine your self-worth, never speak without listening, never give up before you’re ready, never settle for less than you deserve, never complicate what you can simplify, never make promises you can’t keep and never ever believe it’s too late to begin.
