The Truth Can Set You Free

Miserable thoughts today won’t result in a happier tomorrow.

It just isn’t going to happen.

So it’s time to face up to reality – are you happy? Are you living up to your full potential? If your answer is NO, then what are you going to do about it?

There’s a difference between working hard at something for gain and having to drag yourself through the motions  in the vain hope that you’re misery now will pay off.

You’ve got to recognize when it’s time to stop. Identify when you’re only holding onto something out of fear, rather than passion…learn to distinguish between whether something is pushing you closer towards your dreams or just holding you back from them.

Yes – there is no guarantee that the grass will be greener on the other side. But if the grass sure isn’t green here, why are you hanging around?

Be smart and know when to move on. Recognizing when something isn’t making you happy and that change is needed isn’t quitting. It’s taking responsibility for your happiness; it’s respecting the fact that life is short and that time is too precious to waste on something that is keeping you small, when your dreams are so BIG.

Moving on doesn’t make you a failure, it is making something of yourself.

Admitting that something isn’t working for you may be easier than you initially thought. It can be liberating! Having the courage to say ‘no more’ will leave you feeling lighter…daring…brave again.

Reluctant to give up a bad thing? Unsure of whether or not it’s time to call it quits?

Whether the decision in question is about love, your career or a big life decision, here are some signs that it might be time to move onto greener pastures:

  • Everything you do is ‘forced’, there is no enthusiasm for what you do
  • When people ask how your day has been, you find your own answer boring
  • There is not much praise or gratitude coming your way
  • You would describe your attitude as having become ‘indifferent’
  • There is so much you want to say, but haven't

Right now, your ego and fears might be trying to have their say, with whisperings of ‘just hang in a little longer…’, ‘but you don’t want to see all your hard work go to waste…’, ‘everyone will see you as a failure…’ etc…
But if the clues are there, you need to accept the facts of what you’re dealing with.

Not happy? Then it’s time to stop the excuses and to do something about it. Don’t get hung up on the hows or what-ifs, just choose to look at the situation exactly as it is – and decide you’re going to move on from it.

The result will be…total liberation. Because it is true what they say – the truth WILL set you free. And once you’re able to look at your life, free from the blinkers of fear and expectation, you’ll find your next move may be more obvious than you’d previously imagined.
