Pushed Around

When you refuse to be pushed or coerced into saying or doing something, you feel much more in control of yourself and your life. – Brian Tracy

How are you today?

Feel alight?

What do you do when someone tries to force you to do something?

For me, I hate camping.

Never liked it.

Didn’t like it as a kid, don’t like it now.

I’ll never enjoy it.

Why? I don’t know.

I just don’t like it.

So what should I do when someone asks me to go camping?

I tell them, “no thank you, I’m not interested” – and I end the conversation.


Because I don’t like it. I don’t enjoy it. It’s not my thing.

But what happens when they try to force it on me? I disengage. I leave. I say no and I move on.

You should do the same.

Don’t let other people force you to do what you don’t want to do.

Now, what about working?

Sometimes I love work.

Sometimes I hate work.

Does that mean that I shouldn’t force myself to work?


Absolutely not.

I should force myself to do it.

It is the best thing for me and by me.

But I don’t force others to work.

If they don’t want to – they should move on.

I’m not interested in forcing others to do what they don’t want to do.

But if you want to eat and have a house – you’ll need to work because without money – you won’t make it. Best to force yourself to work, yes? Yes.
