I’ve often heard people refer to issues, negative issues, as, “it’s no big deal.”
Teenagers, for instance, will often say about the things that adults have learned through experience, that it’s no big deal. Some examples are:
- Watching constant violence on TV or video games.
- Immersing themselves in the overly sexual media.
- Allowing people to disrespect them as long as it is followed by laughter.
- Casual use of cigarettes and alcohol, underage.
- Other dangerous behaviors and mentalities…
But, it is that mentality, that IS a BIG DEAL.
It is that “not a big deal” type of mentality that causes people NOT to take the important things in their life serious enough, like: unfulfilled careers, poverty, mediocrity, living fearful, a lack of confidence, etc…
At some point, if you EVER want to be successful in anything, or EVER want to achieve any dreams. You will have to look at all of the factors in your life as significant.
You must get rid of the things that don’t add to your pursuit of those goals!!!
So, when it comes to those negative habits, even starting as early as childhood, teenage years, or early adulthood, those little things that are considered “no big deal” are the very things that will hinder you from demanding the respect, confidence, and character that is required to make your dreams come true!
If you want to make it the right way, self-respect, honor, dedication, and discipline are VERY BIG DEALS, and you must remove things that are counter to that!
Is changing your life for the better a big deal to you??? If it is, it is also time to re-prioritize what is a big deal, and what is not, in your life, and using those priorities to guide you.
No big deal??? Hardly!!!
Living the life you deserve is a very big deal, but it starts with the mentality that you accept! Once you have the right mentality, you will truly then discover what is a big deal or not!
