What If I told you that you have the power to control your life? What if I told you that you have the choice to create generational wealth? What if I told you that you create the life you want to live?
It took me some time to figure out that the person in the mirror is responsible for your happiness and the way you view and live your life. I complained and played the blame game for far too long in my life. It is not worth it. It is robbing years out of your life. I urge you to take control of your life right now.
I knew I wanted better for my life, so I did better. I ate healthier and read books from financial experts. I wanted to feel better, so I did things that made me happy. I no longer cared about what people thought about me, I didn't care! I’d rather disappoint than to be disappointed.
I made a million mistakes. I listened to the wrong people. I hung around the wrong crowds. I cared about things and people that didn't care about me. I was keeping up with the rich folks when I wasn't a part of the rich world. I did nothing to fuel my life. I made in the moment decisions, and I paid for them. I allowed people to suck me into their miserable worlds. I allowed people to get me angry. I included myself in foolery, gossip and in negative people's daily lives.
Believe it or not, you are who you hang around. I never believed this. I wasn't doing anything that I didn't want to do. I kept telling myself this to make me feel better. Eventually, without me even realizing I became those very people, I said that I would never be. I caused my unhappiness, and I say this because we all have a choice. And yes, I know some people have it much worse than others. But I am here to tell you it is still a choice for you.
You can allow it to hinder your future, or you can do something about it. You can change the way you think, the food you eat, and the people who you surround yourself with. You can change your finances and stop living paycheck to paycheck. And guess what? It doesn't matter if you think you don't make enough. The truth is you need to shift your mindset and allow positivity to fill your cup. Trust me, this is RealLyfe.
