I stumbled across a statement this weekend that I just have to share with you. Take it, soak it in and see where in your life this week you are either celebrating or tolerating.
What remains in your life will be largely determine by what
you celebrate and tolerate. -Steven Furtik
Everything that we do that remains breaks down into one of those two categories. Whether you want to improve your relationships, your health or your wealth, the key to getting the most out of all of those things is to look closely at what you celebrate or tolerate about them.
Questions for reflection:
Do you celebrate the people in your life enough, especially for the things that you love the most about them?
Are there habits in your life that you want to get rid of that just don’t seem to be going away, and if so, how much longer will you continue to tolerate them?
Do you tolerate things that should not be tolerated? Do you make justifications for your own bad habits because it’s just easier that way?
How much fear and doubt do you tolerate in your life? The only way fear or doubt will ever dissipate is by facing them and thereby not tolerating their presence in your life.
Do you celebrate your body for how amazing it is?
When we engage in negative thinking or allow ourselves to be around toxic, negative thinkers, we are celebrating negativity. Are you willing to make a committed decision to only tolerate positive thinking in your life? Are you willing to turn your back on toxic thinking and to stop tolerating others to bring you down?
How often do you tolerate your own negative self-talk?
Celebrate everything positive in your life. Celebrate people, celebrate health, celebrate positive thoughts and celebrate every small great decision that you make.
Celebrate YOU today, celebrate life!
