Despite what you may think, it is not difficult to live a better life.
Sure, life seems difficult, relationships fail, you probably work at a job you cannot stand and so much more! I promise when you are finished reading you will begin to have a whole new outlook on life and will know you can live a better life!
There is one thing you do that causes you not to live a better life! Do you know what it is?
You Make Too Many Uninformed Decisions Without Carefully Weighing The Consequences!
Are you where you desire to be in life? Most likely the answer is, “No!” I can almost guarantee you made an uninformed choice or decision a few years back that put you where you are today. Now be honest with yourself and think back.
For example, if you decided you didn’t like high school and dropped out it’s not a big deal. But as you get older, need to pay bills, have children and more responsibilities that decision to drop out is now hurting you. It makes it very difficult to live a better life.
Here’s another example, you fall madly in live with someone thinking it’s going to last only to realize they wanted to have a little fun with you and leave but now a baby is on the way. Your decision to not protect yourself has caused you some difficulty in your life.
Okay, I’ll give you one more! You take a job paying a lot of money because it can provide you with the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed. After a few months you realize you can’t stand the job but you cannot leave. You have begun to spend more money than you make and don’t want to go back to the way you used to live. So, you stay miserable on the job just to maintain your lifestyle and keep that paycheck.
Those are just three of the many ways in which you derail your chances to live a better life.
Why do you make these mistakes in judgment? Well, you rely on your emotions to make decisions for you. Your emotions will usually get you in a world of trouble. As if you didn’t know that by now!
The way to correct this problem is to stop and think things through. There is no rush to make a decision. If you are being rushed then there’s a good chance that decision will come back to haunt you many years later.
Here’s what I ask myself when I have to make a choice or decision:
- Is this something that I need?
- Will it hurt me or help in the short term and long term?
- Who will be affected by this decision or choice?
- Can I live with the consequences of this decision or choice long after I make it?
Those four questions save my butt every single time! I cannot tell you how many things I have avoided by using the above questions!
Look, I am not stupid! I know it will be difficult to stop and think about something when you just want to do it. I’ve been there for so many years. But after a while you just get sick and tired of repeating the same mistakes. You just want to live a better life.
There is a way to live a better life! I have shown you one way! But will you follow? Another way is to have access to Relationship Coaching and Life Coaching when you need it the most. It is your life and your happiness that is on the line here. Not mine!
I have found the way to live a better life. It is simple. It works for me! And I truly believe it can work for you!
Often, I get emails telling me, “Your approach is to simple.” I just laugh, as I know many of the best things in life are free and the way to experience a fulfilling life is to enjoy and utilize those simple things.
If you are ready to live a better life then make a change today! You will have no one to blame but yourself if you end up with a life you dislike! A better life is waiting for you!
