Stop Complaining, You’re Not Working Hard Enough
As someone with a strong work ethic, I pride myself on getting things done by any means necessary. I am committed to making things work and finding solutions to problems. I require a lot of myself because I know what I am capable of and mediocrity and I have never been synonymous. I’m going to work harder than anyone else, I’m going to provide the best results I possibly can, and I’m going to give 110% to everything my name is associated with.
Not only do I demand a lot of myself, I expect it from the people I associate myself with. I can’t relate to people who want handouts, don’t want to work, or who would rather complain than solve the problems in their life. If you are my friend, partner, whoever, and I am sharing my time and energy with you, I expect nothing but greatness from you because I know you have it in you. I see your potential and I am going to do what I can, within boundaries, of course, to get you to dream bigger, want more, and do more.
I will support you, push you, encourage you, uplift you, but I cannot and will not do the work for you. That’s your responsibility. I will also not listen to your complaints if you’re not doing anything to change your situation. If all you have to offer are excuses of why you can’t change your current situation, then you just don’t want to change them, and that’s your prerogative, but I can’t relate.
Too many people are sitting on untouched potential because they are afraid to be uncomfortable, and they have people around them who enable them to stay stagnant, “safe”, and miserable. Not I. Either you’re going to do the work to change your situation, or you’re going to complain and continue to be miserable. The choice is always yours.
As the saying goes, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink. I can do all I can to show you your greatness, but until you realize it, it won’t matter. As friends, family members, partners, etc., it is imperative that we push each other to greatness. There’s no time for pity parties, excuses, and woe is me monologues.
Get over it and go out and make something happen for yourself!
