Toxicity pertains to the state of being poisonous. Commonly, it is the term used when someone or something infiltrates your life making living unbearable. There are many toxic things that surround you, which can either make or break your life. These things crawl into your skin and make everything that you do a little less enough. Satisfaction and contentment will be hard to find no matter how hard you look for them. It is because you’ve already gone too deep in toxicity that it is almost impossible to be saved.

Every person has experienced being toxic to someone and likewise. These poisonous things can come in the form of a family member, a close friend, a significant other, and even yourself. However, it can also appear as insecurities, desires, longings, habits, behaviors, and characteristics. 

Regardless of what toxicity looks like, the most important thing is that you learn how to eliminate them before they start to take over you. It is not something that you should cling on for a long time for it will destroy you sooner or later.

“It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go.” – Daniell Koepke

Whether it’s you or others who are making your life turn upside-down, the only thing that matters is that you begin to cut the rope for life is not a walk in the park. You should start focusing on the brighter side and realize that not all the things around you are diamonds — some are only poisons disguising themselves as sparkly rocks. 

There are a lot of reasons why you must cut off all the toxic things in your life. It is not just for the sake of living a better life but also for the sake of saving yourself from destruction.

When you begin cleaning all edges of your life and start to enhance them, you will gradually meet confidence and be its best friend. Everything may seem scary before but these fears will start to fade away. Also, you may have been trapped in your shell for a long time, but once you erase one of the biggest toxics in your life — which is your insecurities, you will begin to love yourself. 

Self-love is the most important thing of all for that is where change and happiness come from. Once you begin to learn loving yourself despite your imperfections, such as crooked teeth, big belly, wide forehead, stubborn freckles, uneven skin tone, and more, the fear of being the subject for discrimination and not fitting in will not matter anymore.

Additionally, holding back will not be on your list of options once you begin removing the toxic aspects in your life. There may be things that you did not catch, opportunities that you rejected, and people that you shut down because of a handful of reasons. But now that you are starting over and living with contentment, you will start to embrace the change and will never restrain yourself on what makes you happy. 

There will be no more “what ifs” and “should have beens” that will constantly pop up in your mind making you overthink. You will no longer spend your night regretting the chances that you didn’t take; instead you will sleep peacefully knowing that you are bolder and much more capable now.

“If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” – Thomas Edison

Being toxic or being drowned in toxicity can become a little too much to handle. There can be instances where you forget your worth for you are focusing on what’s on your plate, but that is not what life is supposed to be. 

The more you concentrate on the things that might break you, the bigger the tendency that you’d overlook the most significant things in your life. That is why wiping all the toxics will help you see how shiny you are. Once you were a rock full of dust and mud but the moment you begin to clean and wipe that rock, you will discover how much of a gem you are

You really need to stop welcoming things that will not bring betterment to your life, especially those that only create destruction and chaos. Always focus on the good and if there are instances that will make your life a living hell, strive to cut them off and do not let them get in your head. Open your eyes so that you can see how beautiful you already are.

Toxicity may create a little hole in both your mind and soul but never forget that you are the captain of your ship. Do not let the poison continue to flow through your system, be the agent that stops this ugly thing from streaming so that you can be the best version of yourself.

In the weeks and months following the heinous terror attacks of September 11, millions of Americans decreased their domestic air travel. As domestic flying decreased, car travel increased where a study found that people opted to drive longer distances rather than fly. Not taking into account 9/11, there were 331 airplane crash fatalities in the U.S from 1751 crash events. What’s interesting is there were 42,000 driving-related deaths in that same year. The number of deaths in air travel and road travel remained relatively consistent in subsequent years. (more…)

I had, and still have, a message I want to share with those that will listen. Heck, I am even willing to share it to those that are less than willing to listen. Therefore, I decided to start a podcast. A podcast focused on those that feel like the odds are stacked against them when it comes to venturing into those entrepreneurial waters. Those that have an inner belief that they can do it, but perhaps the people around them are less than enthusiastic about this new journey. 

Nonetheless, these Dark Horses, as I call them, buck the odds and run their own race to reach their own dreams and achieve their own goals. Little did I know that as I launched The Dark Horse Entrepreneur podcast, on a mission to teach others the lessons I have learned in business and in life, that I would be in turn learning even more lessons because of stepping out into the podcast arena.
