taking action.

"A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided."
 Anthony Robbins is a world renowned self-help author and motivational speaker. With quotes like the one above, it's pretty obvious why. We all go through phases where we realize that we are unhappy with a certain aspect of our life; whether it's our career, relationship, friendships, finances, physical health, living conditions, lifestyle, or anything else. Admitting you are unhappy is one thing, but actually taking action to change that desolate feeling is something completely different. It's easy for us all to complain, say we're unhappy, throw up our hands, or have an emotional breakdown. The pity party can only go on so long- eventually your biggest supporters will start to fade from the exhaustion of trying to help you get on a better path or help you make changes. We are all strong, capable human beings. We must push ourselves to great heights. We must not settle for less than we deserve. If we are unhappy, we must take action to change it. Good things in life are rarely handed to us- most require hard work, sweat, and probably tears. Sometimes it means trying to make changes, but making the wrong ones. Life is a process; a series of steps. We can't expect to wake up one day and for things to be perfect. Nothing in life is perfect, but this doesn't mean you cannot be happy. You should set some standards for yourself on a regular basis- what kind of life you want to live, what kind of people you want to let into your life, what kind of effort you are willing to put in, and who you want to be. If your life isn't aligning with your ideals, then take action! It's the single most effective way to get yourself on a better path.

Refuse to settle. Make a plan. Take action. Be something grand!
