Road to Success……You have to Change
Even when you decide and accept that it is necessary to change, you still have to deal with how to change and where to start.
Zig Ziglar in his book of quotes says: “You are what you are and where you are because of what has gone into your mind. You can change what you are and where you are by changing what goes into your mind”
It takes time to change and cut a new path and you find yourself slipping back into the old way without realizing how you got there. It takes time to form new habits and make the change permanent. I guess that is a good thing because it allows you to tweek it along the way before you get set in your new ways.
The pain of the old way sometimes help you to get back in line, while the positives that the new way has brought is motivation to stick with it.
Sometimes change requires us to overdrive some negatives that are deeply embedded in our subconscious and that sabotage us every time we try to go forward. As a believer in God that is where prayers and positive affirmation and faith comes in, to get us pass these hurdles which we must overcome.
A good tool to use also is visualization. Run a mental movie of yourself doing the activity and make it as detailed as you can. You would be surprised at how you can mentally overcome hurdles and fine tune the changes even before you take action.
Change often requires us to do the uncomfortable for awhile. The uncertain outcome makes us fearful and anxious until it we become comfortable with the new situation.
My mentor, the Late Jim Rohn, philosopher, says: “For things to change you have to change”
Change, it is not easy but it is necessary for us to grow and achieve our goals..
