Change is the transformation from one thing to another. Change is a requirement to success in life whether you goal is personal or professional. Just as a cocoon changes into a butterfly or a cub a lion, we must change from the person we are now into the individual we wish to become in the future. Change demands work and the work is not accomplished in a day. When it comes to change, you must see where you’re going because if you can’t see where you are going, you’ll never get there.
How many times have you said to yourself I’m going to do this or that and nothing changed? I know I have. I believe that in order to change anything that is in our control, we must participate in the process. Oftentimes, we want the gain and not the pain. We live in a population where people don’t want to deal with change. They would rather let someone else deal with that issue. Politicians love to talk change however, things still remain the same.
I feel that change cannot not be obtained through another man, it must begin with yourself. When you place the responsibility of change in the hands of another man, you get problems. Only you can be your change. There is an old saying that goes: if you continue to do what you’ve always done, you will continue to get what you always have. Most people have a poverty mentality that says what can you do for me versus a how can I add value mindset. If your mindset is wrong, your reality will be wrong also. When you resist change and sacrifice it for security, you become a slave and relinquish your freedom.
