Your Life is What You Tolerate

If you tolerate living in a disorganized or shabby house…

If you tolerate the addiction or irresponsibility of your spouse…

If you tolerate the financial mismanagement of your parents (or your adult kids)…

If you tolerate being around negative toxic people…

If you tolerate being scammed and cheated…

If you tolerate someone’s unethical treatment of you…

If you tolerate working in an organization that mistreats people…

If you tolerate the shortcomings of your leaders…

If you tolerate the excuses of the people you work with…

If you tolerate mediocrity or poor quality of anything…

Then that will be your life.


Complaining about why your life sucks doesn’t change anything.

Instead, ask yourself about the things you can’t tolerate.

If your place has been dirty and disorganized for a very long time, that means you can tolerate that.

Same goes for your work and relationships.

The things you tolerate will define the life you want for yourself.

Once you know the things you can tolerate and the things you can’t, you’re now aware.

Awareness is the first step to transforming a miserable life into the life you want.

Once you’re aware, you have to decide if you want to change, leave, or accept.

It’s your own life. You’re the one in charge.
