I can’t change now… [insert an endless amount of excuses].
When we get a certain age, go a certain amount of time with a career, lifestyle, mindset… after a certain point there’s no changing the way things are. We can’t go back. We’ve missed our opportunity.
I call bullshit!
I can’t say how many times I’ve heard people talk about how they want to change, but they can’t for whatever reason, more like excuse. It bothers me… to my core it bothers me. It bothers me when people talk constantly about wanting something to change in their life, but they never actually take any steps to change it. Makes me wonder if they really want it or they’re just saying they want it.
We all hesitate to change. Change is scary. Change is really hard. It’s hard to do something different and push ourselves out of our comfort zone, even if its not all that comfortable and really just familiar. Change is also hard because of the people around us. A lot of others don’t want us to change because they don’t want to change.
I believe if we are here, alive, breathing air we have an opportunity to change. We are never too stuck in our ways, too old, too poor, too broken, etc. We have the most powerful thing on our side to help ourselves change… our minds. Our minds are the most powerful tool to change. We need to master our mindset!
If we want to change we need to do it, do it now, stop talking about doing it and do it. We will always have people who tell us we are crazy, we can’t do it. We will always have a part of ourselves that will tell ourselves the same things.
Nothing will every change if nothing ever changes.
What do we want? How do we make the changes to get there?
