Motivational Message Of The Week: Life Owes You Nothing So Stop The Moaning & Do Something…

life is hard

How often have I heard people say ‘life has not been fair to me’ and ‘my life is crap’ or my friend is doing so well, they are so ‘lucky’ as if life owes them something or their friend just woke up one day with success and money at their fingers?

For some reason, many of us think life has an obligation towards us, and this obligation is for things to easily or favourably work our way with minimal or no efforts in as quicker time as possible!

If you wouldn’t like it when all the stars of the universe conspire against you to make your life hell, why must they come together in calmness to freely offer you greatness? Life was here before you so why must it owe you a damn thing?

Instead of us getting out of our self-pity, laziness, desire for instant gratification, get rich quick mentality and schemes, to go out there and chase what we are passionate about, we constantly nag and moan about what life has not given us.

It is unfortunate that some of us think this way…we want something so life must give it to us or present us the opportunity to aid in getting it without doing anything about it or doing very little.

We want to live a certain lifestyle and think life owes us the duty to make sure that happens.  We want to get to the top and life owes us an obligation to ensure that we get to the top.  Not only get to the top but make it easy and smooth for us. Are we really asking ourselves how realistic these demands and assumptions are?

Why must life owe you anything when you do not acknowledge that you owe yourself something? If you cannot put in the sacrifice, vigorous effort, sleepless nights, sweat and go through the obstacles of life as a duty to yourself so as to achieve what you desire, why must life do that for you?

These constant complaints and comparisons suggesting that life ought to give us what we need and provide us the living we want is often accompanied by ‘life is not easy’.  Who ever said it was going to be easy? Did anyone promise an easy life? The time spent talking about the hardships of life is time wasted that can be used to make a plan to get what you believe you are owed through your hard work…CONTINUE READING FROM HERE

  1. Another wonderful article. I believe in what you have said, for sure but hilariously, let me point out when some people are a little bit right when they say life is not fair: when your friend is beautiful or handsome than you and gets all the good guys/gals and you get nothing. And then (as a girl) it translates into nice things like cars, houses, businesses and you keep sitting there and you just keep getting all those things. Your friend, on the other hand, doesn’t get a good man and she keeps working hard at illing relationships.
    But yes, there are those who watch you work longer hours, going to school, taking up the most difficult courses and saving money in every direction, hardening up your finances and at the end you enjoy your good life while they spend on material things, choosing the lesser/faster ways of life when they meet you at the crossroads, they say “life if not fair”
