Identify and avoid situations that aren’t good, but occurring over and over. Is your health upsetting you? Fix it, do what you need to do to feel better about yourself or take action to heal. Stuck in traffic constantly and getting home angry and frustrated? Change it.
Move closer to work. You can’t be a good partner, parent or contributor if you are shut down, angry and upset.
And, like everything I do, commit to this. You have to make a decision to be obsessed with having the life you want. You have to take ownership of your life.
I work to fund the life I want. I shape my life so I can be with my wife and kids. I align the pieces so I can have the life I want and deserve. I make sure I have things around me in order so it reminds me, and reinforces that I have my life in order and in control. That is the life I want.
