People have been taught to color the lines from an early age. Consistency is considered normal, and it makes waves, calling a person a high maintenance because they “don’t go with the flow.” As successful people grow older, they realize that life has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. We learn that we cannot and should not feel guilty for wanting more.
As we pursue our ultimate goal of life, we learn to dip our toes in water (figuratively speaking) and to stop listening to them. Finding success helps us to be courageous. There comes a moment, however, when we hear the pull of an apology for trying to be different and just make us.
Life goes on fast. No one knows when it will end. Apologizing for the life we really want is a limited belief that must be met in order to be truly successful. Here’s why you should stop apologizing for insisting on a successful life.
Pursuing your goals is your privilege.
The concept of the “American Dream” approach is no longer the same. Wages are low, and living expenses are constantly rising. Gone are the days of 30 years of going to work and receiving a pension. Building a business is a dignified job. Don’t apologize for demanding more than “normal”. This is your life and you get to decide what “dream” means to you. It is your right and responsibility to pursue success and you do not have to answer for the right decisions.
“Make your life art. Imagine that there are no limits to what you can become, have, or have. ”- Brian Tracy
You understand the importance of your health.
When others choose for their life, that is their decision. Don’t apologize for making the best decisions in your life. Your body is a temple, and you find out what you are getting into. If you choose to say no, you may feel awkward or apologetic. Your aggressive path to success means that you will need to increase your strength. Your health choices give you what you will need. Do not apologize for making any decisions that may improve your health.
You have gone too far without tolerating toxic relationships.
Whether it’s a friend, family member, or partner, you realize that a toxic relationship can ruin your life and you’re over it. No matter how difficult it is, cleansing the relationship in the life of an incompatible person is necessary in order to be successful. It may be considered tough or sticky, but the path to success requires a different mindset and a commitment to a healthy mental bandwidth. Do not apologize for making sure you are surrounded by a very good relationship.
You are committed to avoiding complacency.
Often, we are confused by gratitude and indifference. Thank you, but look for great experiences and goals in your life. Successful leaders know that prosperity is the enemy of growth because it ensures stability. Your commitment to avoiding negligence (at all costs) is one of the reasons why you will continue to grow. Don’t apologize for demanding more thanks.
Stop looking back, and that’s a good thing.
If you have left behind old thoughts, and / or bad people, do not apologize. Keep moving forward. The past is meant to be part of your learning journey. It helps you to understand what works and what doesn’t. You don’t need to stay there or be chained to previous decisions.
“The whole secret of a successful life is finding out what a person’s future is going to be, and then doing it.” – Henry Ford
You are confident in what you want.
Often, self-esteem is confused with arrogance. The fact is, successful leaders know what they are looking for, and they are pursuing it. Stop apologizing for your conviction, determination, and persistence in achieving great goals. Self-confidence can be your guide in times when doubts and fears try to distract you. You know what you want – you are a brave owner.
Apologizing is a natural human emotion for which we are held. We can break free from negative feelings. Remember, there is a big difference between selfishness and selfishness.
The path to success will have a different meaning for everyone who reads this, but a good description of the universe becomes your best translation in all areas of your life. Live your life according to your goals and spend time doing the things that matter to you. Pursue endless life and do not apologize for decisions that help you to create success, satisfaction, and happiness.
