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?
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?
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.
