Success Is Doing The Best You Can

17 Apr

Seems pretty simple, right?

Afterall, we can’t do more than we can!
Afterall, trying harder than we are capable of never works out!
Afterall, our best is our best, and there is nothing better than our best!

So, why is it that if we do our best sometimes it is not good enough?

Well, it is!

The problem is not with ourselves. The problem is with other people! Everybody has different levels of what we are capable of. One persons best effort will not always be the same as someone else’s best effort. This is what makes us all individuals.

Many times we also compare ourselves to other people. If only I could look like Brad Pitt. If only I could run fast like Usane Bolt. If only I could hit a baseball like Derek Jeter. And then there are our friends, family and the immediate people in our lives. If only I could be like my older brothers or sisters. If only I could be like my parents. If only I could have the incredible faith like my minister or wisdom of my school professor.

You see, this is how many of us go through life but we should not. If only we could understand that just doing our individual bests is Success. It IS accomplishing the goal.

There is nothing wrong with achieving less than someone else if you “Do Your Best”! Doing you best is a happy thing. It means you have taken your god given ability, which none of us can change, and we put our heart and best effort into whatever it is!

So, next time you look at something you have done in life and wonder if it is successful?……just simply ask yourself if you did your best! If the answer is yes, then you are a SUCCESS!

Happiness Results In Alcohol ——– Alcohol Never Result In Happiness!

11 Mar

Do you want to know “What causes people to become Alcoholics”?

Simple….Back in the beginning of most peoples first drinks of growing up, or at whatever age we had our first drink, our first drinking experiences usually comes as a result of some sort of celebration.

* Perhaps a winning high school football game
* Someones happy wedding
* Making a big business deal
* Having a great time with friends
* It could be anything but usually in celebration of life

CELEBRATION OF LIFE IS AWESOME! WOO-HOO! PARTY!

And this is where the problem lays. A celebration just by definition is a happy moment in life. Then we “reward” ourselves with alcohol at the end of our celebration.

So, being the dimwitted human beings we are, we start associating alcohol with the great feelings we experienced with real life happiness in those celebrations.

But it is not. We get it backwards and we get confused.

We start thinking by drinking alcohol we then can have the wonderful feeling of real life celebrations and happiness we were “conditioned” to associate with alcohol. It is normal. Think about how many times we have had wonderful days and then rewarded or additionally celebrating ourselves by having a drink! It is normal to want to always have these happy moments. So, the human brain says, well, I just had a horrible day at work, how about I be happy like I was on all those wonderful days I did something fabulous in life and then drank after.

Drinking to try and get the adrenaline rush we have when we are experiencing something wonderful in life doesn’t lead to the same adrenaline rush. It is fake. It doesn’t bring the same happiness of a true celebration of life moments.

So, we drink to try and find those happy moments again. Why wouldn’t we! Heck, life is hard enough and if you can bottle all our amazing moments in life and pop the bottle open to relive them?….Who wouldn’t! And so the merry-go-round starts spinning!

Then, in some people, we end up drinking night after night after night. We chase those happy moments we remember a falsely given a cheap, fake, version of happiness. We get the alcohol happiness but never achieve the same real life happiness that only real life moments and natural body adrenaline can produce!

True happiness, and the adrenaline rush only comes from real life celebrations of life. Alcohol can not give you this.

Want to stop drinking? How to stop drinking? Simple, just realize that Happiness is what we experience in life. Happiness are the amazing moments we have in life. Alcohol is and should be only for those moments.

So, hey, if every day is an a Amazing day for you then go for it. However, for most of us, life every day is not.

I don’t have any problem with people drinking. I think AA (Alcoholics Anonymous), and any idiot / morons who say they are going to “rehab” is a fool. Rehab “doctors” are a bunch of loser people who have never drank and experienced life. They pushed their butt stained noses into books and never lived life. If you want real advice in how to stop drinking ask someone who has been there, gone back, been there, gone back, and has a control of the nasty dragon!

It’s not easy to quit drinking. It takes wanting to stop! If you don’t want too, don’t bother torchuring yourself or the idiot who suggested it! It takes a commitment to yourself to seeing a “new” future that you want more than the old one!

If someone asks you to stop drinking tell them you are Charlie Sheen and you are WINNING!

But beware, if you are not making $2,000,000, 20 times a year each television show episode then you might want to re-evaluate if you are truly WINNING! You just might be LOSING!

To stop drinking, you need to talk to yourself every single day of the first 2 weeks non-stop repeating, “I am not WINNING when I drink, everything is a MESS, I will drink when I’m WINNING again”!

Yes, I said it. WINNERS can drink again! LOSERS can not!

Are you a winner or a loser? Be honest.

Except for the very few we are all losers. The US news media has romanticized and glamorized models, actors, politicians, come to think of it, anyone in front of a camera!

Why is it that “ALL OF US” have to be force fed such fake expectations! Do I hear LAWSUIT? Yep! What is my cut since I pointed this out?
