This is What’s Holding You Back…

Want to know a surefire way to never get what you want in life?

Start compromising.

Think about it...

How many times has compromising with yourself forced you to settle with something you really didn’t even want?

Look around you.

Is the job you have your dream job?

Is the relationship you’re in better than you ever thought a relationship could be?

Are you in the kind of shape you’d like to be in?

Is your life all you ever dreamed it would be and more?

If you answered no to any of these, I say to you:

Why the fuck not?

Chances are somewhere along the line you made what, at the time … seemed like small compromises with yourself.

Small compromises like buying a pair of jeans that is one size too large...

Going up to the next belt loop...

Staying in a relationship because it's easy and things are going "pretty good"...

Settling for an average job because it has steady pay...

I guarantee you that any area of your life that you aren't completely happy with is because of small compromises that you made.

All these compromises do is adjust your standards down a notch so that you can be comfortable with yourself.

You do realize that these seemingly small compromises you make on a daily basis are exactly what’s keeping you from the life you truly want … don’t you?

Every single one of these compromises you make is, in a sense … the beginning of the end of your dreams.

"Really hard” isn’t revving up and tenaciously going after the life you want with everything you have...

“Really hard” is living a life full of regret because you settled for an existence you never wanted...

All because you didn’t have the courage or fortitude to make things happen for yourself.

Nobody is holding you back except for you and your compromised standards.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself.

Do some soul searching...

Remember what it really is that you want from life...

Then go out and fucking get it.
