Nothing happens until something moves 



Perhaps it’s time to take an honest look at what you have been doing to move forward in your life.

Daily I notice how people desperately want to achieve success in their lives find work get educated fall in love start a family yet they anxiously sit around the sidelines doing absolutely nothing but complain about how bad life is and waiting to see what will come their way. The hard truth and fact is that success doesn’t just fall out of the sky or come handed to you on a silver platter… like Einstein says:”nothing happens until something moves”… action based on realistic circumstances speak so much louder than just words. Yet it is much easier to sit around and remain stuck than it is to move out of your lazy comfort zone. Problem with that is that you won’t be able to achieve anything. In real life failure seems to be the easy way out for many and being successful is always someone elses luck. Luck has nothing to do with it – get up get moving because moving forward means starting right where you are with the little that you have at hand.

Yes times are hard and stressful money is tight and sometimes non existent. But being in denial about your situation just means that you are sabotaging yourself and your future. And most of the time its just a cry for help. The person stuck in victim mode always screams – rescue me please!!! 

Denial always says “I am ashamed and I’m afraid to admit it to myself. I don’t want anyone to see or know this about me. Because for me to see or know this would imply that I am ‘less than’ or ‘unworthy’ in your eyes.” 

So this is what I would say to Denial…

“Hey Denial come over here, thank you for sharing… NOW LEAVE” 


I would love to hear your thoughts and read your comments. 

Thank you for reading,

    Great post I completely agree. It’s so easy to stay in our comfort zones and complain about our circumstances because it gives us an excuse not to do anything. Success is possible it’s just about what you make out of what you have 😉

    Love this piece – I live in Australia where we have practically everything we could wish for and yet we still complain and want more. The Age of Entitlement is with us. Once people feel entitled to something it’s very hard to tell them they shouldn’t have it, that they should work to achieve it for themselves. My poems talk about this.
    Wishing you all a successful and self-reliant New Year.
