Why so serious? Yes, I know. That’s a line from an old Batman movie. But, it’s true that we sometimes become too serious about life or career.
But, I should be just as concerned about balance between career and life.
That’s why I’m writing this today to help you (and me) realize that there are some things in life we cannot change – nor should we.
Get a Jump on the New Year by Using Acceptance to Better your Personal & Modeling Life
Do you have the knack to accept the things you can change and the things you can’t change? Are you willing to accept the numerous changes that occur in your life?
When you are able to accept things in life, you find a way to take charge. When you’re in command, it helps you to discover a better personal life. And, you’ll learn to discover you!
Finding Identity can be an Excuse
Many people believe that, when we act the same way at all times, we institute our identity.
- & actions.
We have been infested by a world of influences both good and bad. Every day we feel something new, which causes our personality to reflect these modifications.
We live in a world that desensitizes us.
We’re surrounded by 1,000,000,000,000s of influences on:
- in the media,
- on radio,
- in homes,
- schools etc.
Each to their own. But, everybody is judging somebody every waking moment, which is something we have to accept.
We can’t alter these people’s behaviors and ways of thinking. But, we can change ours.
This is a component of learning and accepting. The best way around the world is to become your own influence – and let other influences affect other people, not us.
Laugh It Off!
Once you learn to accept, you’ll be able to laugh.
For example, if that other model makes you crazy, you’ll see the humor in his or her actions.
And, you might see the humor in your own actions when you make mistakes (And you will if you live long enough).
Once you begin to see the humor in life, you’ll feel better inside. When you learn to change to better your response to things that happen in life, others might follow.
Good conduct is far more effective than words to help others to change.
I once heard a wise saying:
“What you do speaks so loud, I can’t hear a word you’re saying.”
A good axiom to live by.
Think and Grow in Your Personal Life – The Better Way..
As you grow you’ll feel a fresh hunger for a full life. And, that hunger will guide you to discover fresh ways to make your life better.
In time, as you begin to feel better, you’ll see a need to exercise, eat correctly, and hang out with positive people, etc.
Then, this hunger will soon inspire you to work toward accomplishing your goals. I won’t go into this now because I wrote a piece about goal setting a while ago.
My final thought for Models?
Take time to smell the roses. Find humor in the things and situations around you. Not only will this make you a better model, it’ll move you to be a better person.
When that happens, people will love you for your attitude, your determination and your care for other human beings.
Make it a good day!
