Glaring Signals That You’re Settling For Less Than You Deserve

Your heart is speaking…are you listening?

How many people do you think are settling for less than they deserve in life? Not just life, but love?

Most people, if we’re being honest, are living a life that leaves space between what they’re getting, and what they deserve.

For some, I believe it’s something they don’t even realize. If they’ve never taken the time to define what they deserve, how can they know what it really means?

And, what’s more, if they don’t truly believe they deserve it, they’ll be left longingly staring out the window as the world passes them by.

I, however, refuse to sit idly by and let people sink into their seats wishing for a life that, if they actually stepped up to the plate, they are capable of creating.

That’s precisely why I started writing and speaking and coaching over 10 years ago.

One of the primary factors in this is not just knowing what you deserve, but being able to honestly recognize the signs that you’re not getting it.

It’s time to stop tacitly accepting what you’re handed in life. Time to stop settling for “just okay.” Time to stop thinking that happiness is reserved for other people.
