Nothing is more frustrating than hearing whispers of “Why me?” over and over again. There are some days that all you can do is sit back, shake your head and ask yourself, “Why me?”. Why do these things have to happen to me? Why is it that I always get the short end of the stick? Why can’t I do better?
Life can be brutal. And at times, you feel like you are being beaten up over and over again. I have felt that on TOO many occasions. What is it that we as women tend to beat ourselves up thinking it will help us gain traction? We only fall backwards leading us down the dark spiral staircase to destruction.
How is your countdown looking today? Are you ready to take on the world? Or would you prefer to remain stuck in your “WHYs”?
Too many questions, I know. Why can’t I just know what to do next? It’s not fair. My girlfriend seems to have it all put together. The harder I try, the farther behind I fall.
So what’s left for me…..The why?
I’m tired of the leftovers! I want something more in life.
Why can’t I?
Stop asking yourself why and take AIM!
Action ignites motivation!
Sometimes our why’s are only ‘wait for a moment’ excuses to lead us astray from what really matters. Let’s just pause here. Are your why’s really excuses?
Well for me, they were more of a distraction. And yes, distractions are excuses! Anything to attract you to something else becomes your excuse, good or bad.
So if why’s are excuses, what can you do to overcome them?
Well, if you are asking yourself “why?”, then turn the question to a more actionable step. For example….. What can I do to better the woman I see in the mirror? What can I do to impact those who know me?
What can I do?
‘What can I do?’ puts the ball in your court giving the one thing you can control…YOU! Otherwise, we are sitting and trying to control things that we have no control over. No wonder you are asking yourself “WHY?”.
So what can you do right now? It’s all about creating your now. If your why is stopping you, how can you go over, under or around it?
YOU have the power!
Put your ‘whys’ to bed and let God resurrect the power within you to answer “What can I do?”.
One step at a time leads to miles of greatness!
Leave the whys alone and take your next step. It’s just the next step. You are not going to move the mountain in one day. You are incredible! But we need to be reasonable, and realistic. ;0)
You are a beautiful woman created on purpose for a purpose. Don’t let a day go by without smiling and reminding yourself of the impact you create!
Go out and make it an incredible day!
