Take Over Control

If there is one thing that really grinds my gears it is people who complain for hours and pretend as though they are completely helpless, lacking any sort of ambition to change. Do you honestly think everyone is born in shape, healthy and educated? Well, let me assure you they are not. That is something they made a choice to become and followed through on. I just can’t stand it!

I have had to “silence” many people in my life because I get so worked up at their inability to understand that the only person who can help you in life is you. This has become most apparent in how people approach health and fitness but I have been exposed to it in arenas such as careers and relationships as well. Any way you slice it, it is still super annoying and painful for me to experience. If I hear one more person complain about how fat they look in their skinny jeans while sapping on a margarita and woofing down wet bean and cheesers I am going to lose my shit! I mean… DUUUUUHHH, drink a freaking glass of water and let’s power walk around this restaurant for G sake. TAKE OVER CONTROL!

You want change, MAKE IT! You want to leave your miserable job because it sucks and you are under appreciated, DO IT! Life is far too short to be stuck in things that make you unhappy. Anything that makes you bummed out or not see life as the most shiny, glorious day ever, has got to go! That fat suit your wearing, yeah, unzip that nasty thing and step out as the fit and healthy person you want to be. Hate the fact you are lonely due to your negative nature? Go on a freaking vacation and press reset on your life! There is only ONE person who can make changes and make you happy... walk to your bathroom, look in the mirror and check them out, it is YOU! So, the next time you hear this whiny voice and you aren’t sure where it is coming from, make sure it isn’t coming from that loser inside of you. Every one of you has the ability to be and do whatever you want. I am not saying it is going to be easy, but if it isn’t hard is it really worth doing? Probably not. Decide what you want from yourself and your life and go get it. Turn on that ambition, that motivation to take life by the cajones and make it happen! Better to do that and die trying than to waste away your youth and precious time on this Earth being a lazy “settler”. Make the most of what you have and TAKE OVER CONTROL! You truly can do it, believe it and never, ever let anyone (especially yourself) say you can’t.
