If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. That's what Dr. Phil says on his TV show. I think that is sooo profound . . .
It takes away your lackadaisical response to something, doesn't it? The "I don't care. What happens, happens" attitude.
Because you actually want to be the one in control, don't you? You don't want to fall for just "anything".
In order not to fall for just "anything", YOU have to make a decision. If you don't make a decision, you have actually made a decision not to decide. Therefore, someone else will make the decision for you.
We say things to ourselves like "But I don't know what to do." Well, guess what? You certainly aren't going to learn what to do by not doing it.
YOU have to stand up and take control. You have to choose. Because you actually have a vested interest in the outcome. Because if you don't take a stand, someone is going to make the decision for you. And you will "fall" for it, won't you?, I ask, eyebrows raised.
It's a law of nature. You either do what you know you should, or you "fall" for something someone else wants.
Some people live their lives like that. They think, "Oh well, if I don't do it someone else will." Great, huh? They are letting someone else live their life, aren't they? Someone else will do whatever needs to be done, instead of them. Right or wrong that someone else is learning, instead of them.
Because everything we do is a learning process. If someone else learns, well . . .
If someone else does it, they reap the profits, good or bad. Those are profits YOU should have been reaping, either way. Because life is what? A learning process. You need to make it a point to keep learning.
You should want to reap the benefits of all experiences -- badly. You should want to reap the benefits of all experiences -- very badly. We learn most of our most valuable lessons from our mistakes.
Learn what you stand for. Start a list and add to it daily.
You have to know what you stand for, so you'll know what you won't fall for. If you don't know right now, figure it out right now -- it makes life a whole lot easier.
