4: Complain, accept or change

When you don’t like things in your life, things that piss you off, you have three options::

  1. Keep complaining like a baby
  2. Accept it like a man
  3. Change it like a hero

In a business perspective you being an entrepreneur you have to face an occasionally even stronger reality where you need to adapt fast and make quick decisions. A short video by Gary Vaynerchuk expresses the adaptation to reality very direct and understandable.

You basically need to put yourself into, what I call, hunger mode. You want to be wanting more because you’re hungry for more, not satisfied with the status quo and totally not with how your life is.

Being comfortable, similar to the scene of the popular movie „Wall-E“ where people sit in their chair, receive food, become fat and immobile is one of the horror scenarios.

All that is only valid if you are hero, not the one who accepts, not the one who cries. You’re the one who changes. And change starts with being productive. One of the easiest ways to be productive is get your ass move out of the chair, every day.

The take-away from today: You decide how to deal with problems and challenges – personal and professional. At the end of the day, you want to ask yourself: Did I give everything today to achieve what I wanted or was I being too soft and unwilling? Be honest to yourself because if you’re not the cycle of lying to yourself will just continue.

Honesty starts with yourself. Have a good day.
