Wasting Your Wake-Up Call.

Sometimes bad news is the best news you can get. You're stuck and frustrated and not sure what to do.

You're pretty sure things aren't the way they should be but aren't motivated enough to change them.

You're going through the motions.

That bad news is your motivation to turn things around.

A wake-up call. An opportunity to rethink why and how and what you're doing.

It's probably not going to be a fun call, but you should be grateful for it.

You were stuck and now you're not. You were looking for motivation and now you have it.

In truth, you don't need to do anything.

That wake-up call might just  be another good excuse for you to point the finger at somebody else.

Another reason to stay beaten down. Another sign but everyone else has it easier than you do.

If you're looking for excuses, you'll find one.

But if you're desperate for change, a wake up call is the lift you've been looking for.

A reason to try harder.

The motivation to dig deeper. The purpose and power to persevere.

Don't waste this opportunity.

Don't look back on your wake-up call and realize you let it become your final call.
