HOW TO ELIMINATE TOLERATIONS IN YOUR LIFE

There are so many things we tolerate in our lives, day after day. Things that really irk us and raise our stress levels; things and people that steal our joy and drain our energy. We allow them to go on unabated because we are trying to avoid dealing with the crux of the matter.

So, what are you tolerating in your life right now?

An abusive spouse

Cluttered house

Noisy neighbours

What have you done or what are you doing about it??........nothing. I got that right. You don’t even want to think about it.

Well, now is your moment of truth. Exhale, take some “me” time and get out a sheet of paper.

List your tolerations in the home, office and maybe even in your relationships.

Is there something you can do to change that situation to a more positive or healthier one?

Is there someone you need to speak to, and you have been avoiding it?

Is there something in your daily routine or schedule you can eliminate to make your day more meaningful?

What is the worse thing that can happen if you fail in your efforts?

What would be the end result if your efforts were successful?

Can you continue to ignore this toleration? What would be the cost?

In reality (not TV), much of the cost would be on your emotional, physical and mental health. What a price to pay!!! So if you love yourself and if you value your health, go ahead and do what needs to be done. It may not be as bad as it seems, and you may be pleasantly surprised at the outcome.

In some cases, there may be some situations which cannot be resolved immediately. In those situations, I invite you to re-evaluate who you are in those situations…how you respond at those times. Do you just simply react, everytime you are in that situation?

If you cannot change the situation, change who you are in the situation.

Then watch your life change for the better.
