I hear a lot of people say things like, “I’m too set in my ways to change.” or, “I’m too old to exercise.” or, “That’s just the way it is.”
Saying you’re too set in your ways to change really means; “I’m subconsciously comfortable with my life and I’m scared to change.”
It’s never too late to change. It’s never too late to learn something new or develop a new skill or learn better behavior patterns. It’s never too late to discover your true potential and become your best self!
I’m speaking from experience. I know what it’s like to feel you’ll never change. For most of my life I lived that way. I believed I was broken and that nothing could fix me. What I didn’t know was that staying stuck in my old belief patterns was a choice. Just like buying into the lie that my history defined my future was a choice.
Once I discovered I could choose to be a different person my life underwent a miraculous transformation. I changed. I started becoming the man I always knew I could be. Depression vanished; hope shone like a searchlight in my mind and ignited the fires of creativity, self-belief, passion, and purpose!
What about you? Are you content to maintain the status-quo? Or are you ready to make a difference, to change the path of your future?
The first step to changing your life’s path is to decide you want something better. Once you make that decision you might feel discomfort or hear voices saying, “It’s really not that bad. Let’s not be hasty and do something drastic.” or something similar.
That’s fear of change talking. It’s your comfort zone resisting growth. And most importantly, it means you’re on the right path! Change of any kind is uncomfortable for most people. Embrace that feeling. Let discomfort act as a way-post telling you you’re growing.
So say, “Enough is enough!” Demand a better future for yourself and those you love.
Now, create that future!
Today is the perfect day to start!
You Are The Master of Your Destiny!
