Runnin outta gas???

I can't count how many people I've heard say, "I'm sick and tired of my life, I am going to do something about it".

Then what?

I must sadly say, they normally keep at it for a week or two and then quickly run outta gas. It's like that spark that they felt in that brief moment of "false revolt", was just not enough to keep them going.

You see, when a person is really sick and tired of things, they can't rest until they see change. It's like the classic example of a person walking and feeling like they have a rock or something in their shoe... It doesn't matter how much they try to ignore it, that rock is going to hurt, irritate, upset and frustrate them until they take action, by stopping, taking off the shoe and getting the rock out. In fact, the more they try to walk with the rock in the shoe, the more it will hurt.

What this means is that when a person is REALLY uncomfortable with a situation, even if they try to ignore it, they will not be able to. It is like a rock in the shoe, and the pain won't go away. They will have to take action.

But those who are not truly fed up, normally spend more time talking about how upset they are, than they do doing something to change their situation.

In short, I'm saying, if you feel like you're running outta gas, when it comes to pursuing your dreams or solving your problems; perhaps, the truth is, there was no real petrol there in the first place. Maybe you've mistaken flatulation for motivation?

P.S. If you don't know what flatulation is, just google it. At least that's a start to taking action.
