Never Settle for Less (The Ultimate Guide + Image Quotes)

According to studies, two-thirds of Americans are dissatisfied. That is absurd. Check this list for warning signs that you're settling for less than you deserve, whether you want to get out of a bad relationship, move across the country, start a business, dye your hair green, or go to the moon.

1. You are constantly exhausted

You should not be tired at one o'clock in the afternoon if you get eight hours of sleep and are otherwise healthy. Life gives you energy when you are excited about it. If you get tired early in the morning or have difficulty getting out of bed, your life isn't providing you with the excitement and energy you require to get through the day. You're tired of being bored. Take action.

2. You keep using the word “after

You put off pursuing your dream until this or that happens because you are afraid of failing. You believe that if you don't start, you won't be able to fail. That's an excellent way to avoid failure, but it's a terrible way to live a fulfilling life. The timing will never be perfect. In fact, the timing will almost certainly never be favorable. Waiting for something that will never come will keep you settling for less. Take action right now.

3. You place blame on others

Every day, people do mean, harmful, and illegal things. But that isn't the reason you haven't achieved your goals. Every successful person has had dirt kicked in their face at some point in their lives, most likely several times. In any case, they were successful. Blaming someone who has maliciously harmed you, the government, the economy, or any other force gives them power over you. Don't do it. It's the equivalent of giving your opponent brass knuckles in a fight.

4. You don't believe you can

Nobody who has ever done anything has ever claimed that it was simple. It's always difficult, but it's always worthwhile. Don't confuse difficult with impossible. Punch yourself in the face whenever you catch yourself saying, “I can't do that.” Then ask yourself if you really can't do it or if you're just saying that because it's difficult. Perform difficult tasks.

5. You have a lot of ideas but little action

You spend a lot of time thinking about what you want to accomplish, but you take little or no action. You fantasize about it but never do it. If you keep thinking about something, you should do it. There's a reason it's stuck in your head. Nobody ever said on their deathbed, “I'm really glad I thought about that thing my whole life but never did it.” Consider less and act more.

6. You keep repeating the phrase “someday

“Someday” is a worse word than “after.” You keep saying you'll follow your dream someday. It really means, “When something unknown happens, I'll do what I really want to do.” You're putting your life on the line. Kick the ball as hard as you possibly can.

7. You slam successful people

You only despise other people because they have accomplished something — their lifestyle, their wealth, their relationships. You believe that successful people are greedy, unlucky, or dishonest. This forces you to settle for less and creates an artificial barrier to success. You are conditioning your mind to believe the lie that success is reserved for the greedy, lucky, and dishonest. Because you are most likely none of these, your subconscious mind is learning that success is not for you. Celebrate the accomplishments of others.

8. You're playing small and think it's fine

You convince yourself that settling for less is acceptable. You make up ridiculous reasons why it's okay to keep playing small. You believe that playing small is more secure and practical.

“So many of us choose our life paths based on fear disguised as practicality.”

Jim Carrey

Do you want to reflect on how safely you played the game at the end of your life? Play the game in order to win. You could lose. Losing is a necessary part of winning.

9. You read things like this

You are settling for less if you read about Kim Kardashian's latest drama or other worthless celebrity gossip. You only have 24 hours in a day and a finite amount of time on this planet. You could argue that you enjoy celebrity gossip or news, but is that really what you want to do? Continue reading that stuff if you have nothing better to do. If not, use that time to move closer to your goal.

10. You are envious

Everyone else appears to be living a better life. They are happier, wealthier, have better relationships, and have a better life in general than you. You're a little (or a lot) irritated about it. Take note of even the most subtly expressed rage or hostility toward successful people. If you are pursuing life with all your might, you will be ecstatic to celebrate the success of others.

11. The highlight of your day is food, alcohol, or television

You understand what I mean. You've been thinking about that beer, glass of wine, burger, or the latest episode of Breaking Bad all day. There's nothing wrong with any of those things unless they're the highlight of your day on a regular basis. If all you want out of life is a cheeseburger, a beer, and the latest episode of American Idol, you are settling for less than you deserve. Go after what you really want.

Each of these outcomes is the result of fear. You are convinced that if you fail, your dream will perish. Nonetheless, it is your dream that drives you every day. You don't have to accept failure as a possibility. You can keep going after your goal regardless of what happens.

“It's difficult to beat someone who never gives up.”

Babe Ruth's

The alternative is to make do with less for the rest of your life. You are deserving of better. Take a single step today.
