Putting up with it is the same as endorsing it.
(Quote attributed to Larry Winget)
Let’s face it: you either want it or you don’t.
- Could be that roll of fat around your gut
- Could be the dust in your wallet
- Could be your ability to maintain a loving relationship
- Could be anything you keep putting up with, but can’t stand
If you’re putting up with it, you’re endorsing it
You get what you settle for, friend.
That’s the bottom line.
If you can stand the situation, it will persist.
If you can’t, you’ll do what needs to be done to change it.
Roadturn Challenge: Consider something in your life you’re sick and tired of. (Don’t start with your spouse, though :). It’s probably better to choose something simple to practice on — like that perennial sink of dirty dishes, or a car in severe need of cleaning.
Decide, right now, whether you can live with it the way it is, or whether the situation is going to HAVE to change. I’m not asking you to DO anything here, just to make a decision. Do that, and the solution will follow.
If you decide you CAN live with things the way they are, then quit griping and stressing about the situation. Give yourself and everyone else a break.
If you decide you CAN’T put up with it, then make your decision. This MUST change. Put you foot down. Draw the line. Make up your mind.
Roadturn Principle: In the end, you always get what you’ll settle for.
How does that feel?
Let’s talk about it….
