No more excuses. No more feeling helpless. No more thinking that nothing can be done. It's time to fix your problems.
When you're having a problem that has been plaguing you for months or years, it makes you feel like a prisoner. You can't live your life because you got some problems that you can't seem to shake off. When you can't fix your problems, the problems only become heavier to the point where you will crack.
It's time to fix your problem.
We get caught up in talking about our woes. We like going on and on about how hard life is for us. But we barely focus on the solution, and because we don't try to find the answer for our problems, we would tend to sink deeper and deeper into despair until we lose our minds.
Sometimes, the answers are obvious. Other times, the answers are a bit harder to find. Either way, there is an answer for you -- you just need to be PERSISTENT in looking for it.
Whatever your struggle is, there is a solution. Maybe I can't tell you what it is. Usually, the person with the problem is the one who could find the solution. A person struggling with depression cannot get help from someone who doesn't struggle with it. A person who struggles with weight cannot get help from someone who doesn't struggle with it. Only YOU could help YOU fix the problem that YOU have.
- Everybody around you could offer assistance, but they cannot fix your problem.
- Everybody could offer you a shoulder to cry on, but they cannot give you an answer.
- Everybody could sympathize, offer to pray for you, and tell you to call if you need anything. But only YOU could change your situation.
Just like I cannot tell a child how to grow, I cannot tell you how to change your situation. My suggestions may not work for you, but YOU know a way that will work -- you just need to do it.
We could struggle with something only so long until we get tired of it. Once our bodies get fatigue with the struggle, our frustrations will pave the way for change. When you realize that you can't live your life because you allow the struggle to continue, then you will start seeing solutions. The alternative is to keep struggling with the problem, and you don't want that.
Speaking of, ask yourself, "How long do I plan on struggling with this?" Ten years will come and go, and you don't want to look back to see that you've been plagued with the same problem for all those ten years. There will come a point in your life where you would have to decide if you want to continue in the struggle or look for a way out.
When you try to find a solution, you need to be ACTIVE! You can't be passive about change. You can't just "let change happen." You need to "make it happen!" Your problems have no "problem" making your life a mess. Now it's time to turn the tables and attack those problems with passion!
- The longer you struggle, the less enjoyable your life will be.
- The longer you wait for change, the less likely it will happen.
It's time to do something. The right time is NOW. The worst time is LATER.
If you've been actively reading these articles, that shows that you're going in the right direction. But sooner or later, the motivation I give won't be enough. You will need to find a solution that only YOU could provide.
- Don't wait for the doctors to tell you a solution.
- Don't wait for your preacher to tell you a solution.
- Don't wait for your spouse to tell you a solution.
- Don't wait for a radio show to tell you a solution.
- Don't wait to have a dream about a solution.
Go out there and find that solution! Take the next step. It's time to change. You've been fighting this battle for far too long. Let's do something about it now before the problem completely consumes us. The problem WILL consume you. It's only a matter of WHEN. However, if you take the offensive and attack the problem, then it's a matter of IF the problem will consume you. The answer is determined by how hard you fight it. The harder you go after that problem, the more victorious you will be.
