What comes to those who wait?

Dr. Steve McSwain shares this from Bryant McGill:

Many have said that happiness is an inside job, but be sure to put some emphasis on the word “job.” First, accept that you have responsibility in your own happiness. Stop blaming the world, your past, bad luck or other people. Accept the fact that you have some power and choices in your life. Then begin to use your power and choices.
The most insubordinate obstacle you will encounter is your own limited thinking. How long are you going to keep waiting for happiness to come your way? I guess you’re waiting for happiness to knock your door down and drag you out of your x-year-long streak of “bad luck.”
Quit making excuses, quit denigrating yourself and quit lying to yourself about your lack of ability. Tell the truth; you can, you will and you are. You are not going to move forward unless you firmly commit yourself to change. You must be stubborn about what you can do, not stubborn about why you can’t. Be adamant about your standards.
You may live in a harsh world at times, but you can have a beautiful inner-life, and a beautiful outer-life always begins with a beautiful inner-life.
What are you waiting for?

  1. “Waiting is a skill.” a quote from some writer, I forget. I listened to this video and he made me want to jump up and start hashing about. He made me feel guilty, worthless, useless…he really pushed my buttons. I haven’t been waiting so much as tired of engaging in crap just for the sake of being in action so I can say, “yeah…look at me..I’m doing something.” That ‘something’ was useless and a waste of time and money, but hey..I’m not waiting!! I say..relax…waiting, being patient is a skill.
