We have all heard about people going through a change of life. This is a physical change that affects people in a variety ways. There is less known "change of life" that some people go through without ever knowing it. This change is a mental change of life.
Never does a day go by without a number of changes taking place in our lives. We can choose to control the type of changes we make or alternatively we can allows others make these choices for us. We can choose to let things happen to us or choose to make things happen for us. Seems like an easy choice to make or is it?
When it comes to choices about making changes in his or her life, a champion wants control and takes control. By controlling the changes being made, a champion makes good things happen.
Champions recognize that taking control of the choices they make can involve a bit of risk, but they also realize that failing to make decisions and choices will ultimately prove even riskier. The only real choice for any of us to make is a real easy one. In order to live the lives weve always dreamed of living, we must insist on controlling any and all changes we make in our lives.
We must summon the courage to change those things in our lives that need to be changed and then change them right now. Further, every aspect of our lives must be subject to change. Lets face the facts here. The only sure fire way to insure ourselves a different result is to change. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is a dead end road to nowhere.
How can you or I reasonably expect our lives to change if were not willing to change as well? Quite simply, we cannot. Each of us reaches a crossroads in our lives where a number of life changing decisions must be made. In these moments of truth, we must ultimately decide whether we are going to forcefully snatch control of our lives and make good things happen or instead relinquish control and let whatever happens happen.
What kind of decisions have you made in the past? have these choices taken you where you have always dreamed of going? More importantly, what kind of decisions are you going to be making in the future? And finally, are you fully prepared to make the choices that need to be made and give change a chance in your life?
It is never too late (or too early for that matter) for you to go through your change of life and start making those needed changes right now.
