You Can't Win 'Em All, But You Have To Start Somewhere!

posted in: Blog, Motivation | 0

We spend a lot of time and energy working to please everyone at once. Let’s be honest. It can be downright exhausting. What you have to remember is that the most important person to focus on when trying to maintaining happiness is yourself. Please don’t mistake me, I’m not telling you to change your ways and become a selfish individual. I’m saying, be healthy, photo(53)be happy, and be smart about your decisions. Other’s happiness will follow. You will never be able to please everyone. But, if you live your life in the right way, by doing things that are morally correct and by being compassionate, you’re not only maintaining your own happiness, but taking care of the happiness of others as well.
The first step begins with you.
There will always be a critic or someone who feels that they don’t like how you do things. But, as long as you’re doing the right thing, the people that truly matter (including yourself), will be content.
Let me ask you, if you’re unhappy, frustrated and worn out from being pulled in different directions trying to please various people, how are you giving your all?
How are you applying your skills, care, or ability in the best and most efficient way? Chances are, you’re not.
Picture this scenario: You’re stressed to the max with so much on your plate that you’re frazzled, short-tempered and can’t focus. Who is happy here?

No one.
The first step begins with you.

Take a moment, grab a coffee and relax by yourself, hold the door open for a complete stranger who may not even be close to the door but would appreciate your generosity. By lifting your own spirits, your lifting someone else’s as well.
I’m dating myself a bit here, but, there’s an old song by Rick Nelson, and in it he says, “You can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself.”
Begin with you and the rest will follow. You’ll always have critics and people who aren’t happy with what you’re offering or doing, but, at the end of the day, you’ve pleased someone … even if it’s just yourself.
