Yesterday, while listening to a lecture by Jim Rohn, he made a point that was such a great reminder of one thing we must possess to reach our fullest potential: willingness to change.
If you want change, YOU must change. If you change, everything will change for you. When you get better, everything will get better for you.– Jim Rohn
As I find myself in a time of reflection, personal growth, and preparation for the next season of life, Rohn’s statement resonates deeply with me. It is easy to focus on the things that hinder us and overlook the things within our power to change our life.
Sometimes it is easy to get discouraged about things that have not gone the way we wanted them to. It’s also hard to know whether we can positively influence our future. Are we really in control of our own life? Can we change our outcomes despite what may have happened to us in the past?
In this life, we need personal belief and faith that if WE change, then everything will change for us.
This lecture encouraged me to be willing to change the areas of my life that hinder my growth. While your change may be different than mine, the first step is being honest about the factors you currently allow to inhibit positive change in your life.
Are you spending enough time focused on changing your thoughts and behaviors for the better? Or, are you just stuck expressing frustration?
Wherever you are starting today, know that you can change your thoughts, actions, and character. Our goal: focus on proactively working on the areas of our life that are within our control to change and improve.
See you on the journey of self-improvement!
