There comes a point in your life where you feel that things are going to change. You don’t know how and you don’t know why, but you know that change is coming. It’s like that same old routine isn’t cutting it, and you want to do more with your time. Those things that made you happy before just aren’t up to par now, those late nights in the bar don’t appeal to you. The habits you had before are a burden to you and you want new habits. Being average isn’t okay anymore and you want to be more productive. The knowledge you have now is just the beginning because you genuinely want to learn more. Going to work isn’t something you dread everyday, because you know that you can use that time to get better at what you do. Being a parent or spouse isn’t just a part of life anymore, you have a true desire to be the best you can because those people need you. Your fitness goals were on the back burner but you are seeing that if you don’t change that it may cut years off of your life. Your finances seem to be nothing but debt and you know it’s time to control that.
There are so many aspects of our lives where we can feel that change coming. You never know when that feeling will show up, but when it does you won’t have a doubt it is there. But, there will be plenty of other doubts and thoughts that can hold you back. “I’m not smart so I can’t go to school”. “I’m to old or out of shape to start working out and go back to school”. “I have no clue where to start”. “I will fail any ways”. ” I come from a poor family, so I’m probably destined to be poor”. “I can’t become good at this job because I don’t know how to get better”. “If I change now, I will end up in a worse situation”. “I have too much going on to change something right now”. The list goes on, and it sucks because society will accept these reasons not to change. This world will fuel your thoughts to remain the same because it is easy and comfortable. Most people won’t dare you to be different.
Change is part of life, and it needs to be embraced. When you embrace this new change taking place, it will take you to a side of you that you never knew existed. It will become an obsession, you won’t see it as such a negative thing. When you see even the smallest result of a change you embraced, you will begin to feed off of it. Change will be something you start to constantly seek out because you know where it can take you. when you see a few pounds off of your body you will want to keep going. When you get praised at work for doing something good, you will strive to get better. When you look at your degree plan and realize you are halfway done with a degree, you are gonna be hooked and want to focus on improving your GPA. When your spouse says that they are proud of what you accomplished, you will want to constantly prove to them that their support was worthwhile. When you get your finances under control after coming from a poor family and can buy your child something nice, you will feel a personal satisfaction that is unreal. So, when you feel that it is time to change something in your life, it’s not a mistake. Make that change happen and reap the results of dedication.
