“It is, what it is.” How many times have you heard or used that phrase?
Think about it for a sec – something goes wrong and the first response is, “Well… it IS, what it is.”
Instead of actually doing something about it, you resign yourself and say, “It is, what it is.”
My friend, that phrase keeps you STUCK! It’s a total COP-OUT! It literally KILLS your chances for success! I know this seems harsh, but you need to grasp the importance of what I’m saying!
I’m not being “holier-than-thou” here, it used to use it all the time, until a friend of mine recently – lovingly– corrected me.
See, “It is, what it is,” closes your mind to solutions. It means you are settling. Your inner self accepts “I can’t do anything about it anyway!”
So, what do you do? You don’t take action. You don’t seek solutions. You give up. You settle. And you never fulfill your destiny… all because of this one phrase, this one mindset.
So today, I want to encourage you to take that phrase OUT of your vocabulary! Change the way you think about obstacles and challenges in your life. STOP SETTLING… and start SEEKING solutions!
Me, I consider myself a problem solver, solutions come quickly. But to other people’s problems, not my own. i had to turn that around, apply my other people’s problem solving skills to me. Not easy, it forces to look at your real you, not the which i were you and only then can you find the best solution to the problem t hand.
Consider this…those curve-balls, disappointments, arguments and mistakes provide a PERFECT setup for breakthrough!
Not much changed since last night. And nothing much WILL change, if WE don’t change!
It’s time to stop settling. It’s time to stop giving up (even though you don’t realize it)! Instead of reaching for excuses and cop-outs, reach for solutions! Reach for opportunities!
