Life Is Full of ‘Ifs’ and ‘Buts’
Many people have a relationship that includes many “ifs” and “buts”. This attitude often becomes a huge obstacle on the path leading to success. People who greet everything with the help of “if” or “but” are in fact people who are unlikely to succeed in life.
Why is this so? Experiencing different things gives people an advantage. Exits and involvement in various activities give them a lot of experience and knowledge about different things. Because no knowledge loses time, no one ever knows when their experience can come in handy. Thus, people who are always ready to be on the road are more likely to succeed. On the contrary, people who always stop, giving an excuse or always indulging in arguments based on ifs and butts, often lose some of the best opportunities in life. These people let go of the chances that they can teach them very good lessons. And without important lessons, these people lack a basic solid foundation, which is important for success.
When a person puts “if” or “but” clauses, they limit themselves to doing things that otherwise should be done, and which they are usually able to do. Thus, people must make a subconscious effort to turn all “ifs” and “buts” into something more positive. Every time a situation arises when the “if” or “but” comes into your mind, replace it with “I must.” Paul J. Meyer, who developed the principles of personal development and professional skills, said: “Success is the progressive realization of predefined, personal goals.” And the fact is that this awareness begins to emerge only when people begin to take steps and begin to do something. People who sit with one foot resting on the other all the time, never realize their potential, vocation or goals. Even when they realize this, the activity in them becomes their main cause of failure.
Once Mother Teresa said: “The hunger of love is much harder to remove than the hunger of bread.” In our daily life, we need to show our love for others when, and when possible. This can simply be “thank you” after serving the staff of the canteen; it can be a smile when you meet your friends on the road; this can also be announced to those who support you …
Life is like a lamp; sometimes dark, sometimes bright, it depends on the switch – love.
