Stop Tolerating it and Make Changes

It’s time to take action and be brave

Many of us tolerate things in our lives that drain us or no longer bring us joy – for instance, a bad relationship, a job or an unhealthy behaviour. It’s vital to stop tolerating it – whatever you are unwillingly accepting. Life is too short to accept what you don’t want.
The usual reason for this acceptance is fear. But you cannot find what you want whilst you are still entrenched in tolerating. A leap of faith is required to end one set of circumstances. This removes negative energy and resistance in your life and allows more positive, fresh energy to enter into your life.
Once your focus is away from tolerating, and the resentment that brings, you free up your consciousness and time for more positive forces to enter into your life.

This may all seem like hocus pocus but it is based on the psychological concept of “cognitive bias”. We tend to notice that which we focus upon. If we are in an unfulfilling job, this may take up our thoughts. For example “I hate my job. My friend Mike seems to have a much better job and he gets paid more”. You may notice stories in the media about bad jobs or just be more on the lookout for ideas and concepts that confirm your resentment about work and how unfair the world is.


Stop tolerating it and take action

So, basically, you will be living at a lower level of energy awareness – looking for things that confirm your current state of mind.
It’s time to quit tolerating, and end one chapter so that a new one can begin. This is a test of your courage!

Can you prove that you won’t settle for less? Do you think you have what it takes to regain control and set yourself of a new more rewarding path?

If you can manage your fear and stop thinking about what could go wrong, you can. Don’t be afraid of new opportunities, that is what life is about – instead, be afraid of staying in your comfort zone and accepting that which no longer works for you…
