Morning Cup of Joe – Acceptable Demands

To me, it is a little disturbing to think about the substantial amount of people who simply accept things as they are. Going about their day without a care in the world; satisfied with their mediocrity. If you are going to be anything in this world, you cannot be comfortable with the status quo. Don’t be misled, some people are perfectly fine with where they are and are not interested in advancing. That’s simply their prerogative which they’re entitled to. While I have a serious issue with this, I am fully aware that we are all responsible for ourselves.

For a long time in my life I accepted things as they were hoping they would get better. After I realized that this method of thinking and acting was not getting me anywhere, I decided to start demanding things. The thing one that has remained constant is the cordiality that exists with every demand. Before you can demand anything, you must first be confident in knowing what you want; be clear. Once you are clear on what you want, you will be more discerning as it relates to your options. Basically, you won’t be so quick to accept just anything and you shouldn’t.

This is also true in the relationships that we forge. If you are with someone who is not treating you the way you are supposed to be treated, reevaluate your situation and create an exit strategy immediately. The fact of the matter is; you deserve better than what you are currently choosing to accept. Make smart decisions and wise choices that benefit you in the long run. Remember that life’s journey is all about the choices we make; choose wisely.
