Have you ever wanted to make a powerful change in your life? Perhaps you wanted a new job, or needed a new place to live. Maybe you were looking for a new relationship. Or you needed a new car. Yet as much as we desire something new, it’s far easier to make no changes at all, and just keep on dreaming.
This mindset is a consequence of reactive living – rolling with the punches. We are pulled in many directions by our boss, our clients, and our families. We are so caught up in the details of today, that attaining something better gets pushed off into “tomorrow.” Before you know it, the same old routine, the old same rut, defines your life.
We expect big change to require big effort; and sometimes it seems impossible to live up to the ideals in our mind. So how do you harness positive change?
By making the changes you can make, within your own power, today. Small change is better than no change. Perhaps you can’t immediately change the fact you’re in debt; but you can start putting a little money aside every paycheck.
Perhaps you won’t meet the new love of your life tomorrow, but you can get ready to do so, by taking better care of your image. Try a new hairstyle; buy a new blouse. Smile at people.
Perhaps you can’t move out of your apartment tomorrow, but you can start sorting through your things and giving away the stuff you don’t need. If you want to move, why not get packing?
You can change your life. Sometimes we hear these incredible “rags to riches” stories and think it all happened overnight. In reality, those cases are extremely rare. Changing your life takes vision and commitment. It also takes action! Make the positive changes you can make, today. Every day. Small is better than none at all.
What will you change, today?
