I’ve been working on getting my new digital course Stop Whining + Start Living up and out there, and have been thinking a lot about why I chose such a weird title.
Other than the fact that I found it kind of funny, why do I feel compelled to tell people to stop whining?
Oh right – it’s because I can’t stand whiners.
Whining is a cop-out. It’s a way of not dealing with your shit and not taking control of your life.
If you want something badly enough, what are you gonna do to get it?
It’s time for us all (myself included) to step it up a few notches. Start living like you mean it. And making choices like they matter (because they do).
When you’re dead serious about creating a life, a relationship, a business, an adventure for yourself, you make it your top priority, plain and simple.
When you’re serious about changing your life, every choice matters. What you spend your time doing. Who you spend your time with. Where you dedicate your energy and where you slack off.
If you want to start a successful business that gets clients and makes money, put the time in. Do the work. Stop spending all your money on new shoes, nights out with the girls, and trips to the Caribbean. Use it instead for that business course you know you need, but can’t afford.
If you want to meet a quality man, stop going to the same trashy bars, getting wasted, and taking home losers.
If you want to travel the world, quit your job and get your ass on a plane.
It’s all about geography, choices, and deciding to prioritize this thing that you want so badly.
Because I guarantee, if you want it badly enough, and you put the time, energy, money, and love into what it is you’re going for, there’s no way you won’t get it.
