Many people may say they aren’t satisfied with where they are in their life for one reason or another, but continue to stay where they are. For many, this may be because change can take you out of your comfort zone. Sometimes we need to get comfortable with the uncomfortable in order to make positive changes in our lives.
Every positive change in your life begins with a clear, unequivocal, decision that you are going to either do something or stop doing something. Another reason people resist change is because they tend to focus on what they have to give up, instead of what they have to gain. Your perspective then becomes very important.
Your perspective is important because you will usually find what you are looking for, whether it be in your best interest or not. Know that whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, either way, you are right.
Oftentimes, people will spend so much time looking at the closed doors in their life that they don’t see the doors opening right before them, simply because they weren’t looking.
When making changes in your life, be sure to start small and change something you do daily. The secret to your success is found in your daily routine. Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step in your life. The important thing is to get started. Be sure to focus your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.
Remember that when you commit to making changes, it’s important not to make excuses for what you feel you can or cannot do. Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t do.
Change can be painful, but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong. Stay committed to learning. If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are committed to learning, no one can stop you. Make that change.
