If you could hop on a plane and fly anywhere you want, where would it be? Somewhere tropical, with a beach, a pina colada, some island music playing,..oops sorry I went to my dream location that quick in my mind. Honestly, I asked you this thought provoking question because where you decide to go is all up to you. You literally have the control and authority to choose where you go and where you don’t go!! You can say yes when it comes to your next destination on this journey called life. Not only does this apply to you jumping on a flight and traveling to a dream destination, but it also applies to where you go emotionally.
Emotionally and mentally, some of you have been going to dark, dreary awful places and it’s not good for your mental health. I’m concerned that some of my real life coachable friends are going places no one in their right mind would voluntarily go. And before you say someone made you go to a place you didn’t want to go, let me remind you that you’re the one who’s in control of your whereabouts. No one has the power to make you go anywhere you don’t really want to go. That is unless you’re admitting that you’re actually out of control. Please don’t tell me that you’re living life without power to make sound decisions.
See, if you want to spend the rest your days upset, in a worked up state of mind, always ready to explode, then you go right ahead. But if you want to go somewhere great, make up your mind now that you refuse to give your time, attention or energy to anything that makes you miserable. Seriously, I want you to stop doing that. Stop going “there” with these annoying toxic people who want to push your buttons all the time. Speak your peace if you have to and then move on. Actually, sometimes the best response is no response at all, but please don’t keep traveling the distance to react to obnoxious people. If you think someone is that warped in their head that they’re purposely trying to incite you, make a decision that you’re not going there anymore with them! Why would you keep on going back and forth with a fool anyway? Don’t tell me you’re one of those people who’s addicted to drama?
It’s time to learn to what’s worth your time and then start to calmly and clearly communicate like an adult. And I’m sure you’re saying “But coach you have no idea how the people are in my life!” But actually I do. I know how difficult people are and I’ve learned to stop giving them life! Your reaction in fact keeps them going. Your facial expressions encourage them to keep messing with you. Your body language is an indicator that they’re getting you wound up. You’re giving them your power. Stop that. Today is the day for you to end this pointless trip you’re on with “them!” Stop traveling to the land of negativity and confusion. Refuse to keep boarding a flight that keeps you rattled and on the edge of insanity. Tell the instigators in your world that you’re on your way somewhere better. It’s not that you think you’re better than anyone else, it’s just that you realize now that you deserve a life of peace and calm and they are not in it.
You deserve respect and honor and people who will engage with you the same way. This is truly the best way to soar and take off to your dream destination. Take your power back! You can get to your dream location if you stopped allowing stupidity to distract you and deter you from your next level. I’m so glad you’re going places, just start being more specific and intentional about where you’re headed and please by all means don’t go “there” with toxic time wasters anymore.
