Transform Your Life
I think we have all been fed the lie that we are not special. We have been fed the lie that we do not have what it takes to be whomever we want to be. We have been told how we aren't rich enough to do this, or pretty enough to do that, and this whole culture has got us all caught up on what we can't do instead of dreaming about what we could do if we put our minds to it.
The power we have over ourselves is so incredible and we do not even realize it most of the time. For most of us, we think things are one way or another and our thoughts on the subject or our attitude towards something has nothing to do with the outcome, but that is not true. We can convince ourselves that we can't do something and make it true because of what we told ourselves. Our mindset has so much power over what we can do. I say all of this because I truly believe that you have the power to transform your life to the point where you and your mindset would be completely unrecognizable… But it does not matter what I believe. You have to believe it for it to be possible.
If you want to transform yourself and your life then you have to stop sabotaging yourself by saying things like "I can't." You have got to stop focusing on your limitations and what you can't do. Start dreaming about what you could do. What would it be like if you decided to make every decision based on the best possible outcome towards the best possible version of yourself? Too often we just accept life as the way that it is. We don't get up in the morning on time and we tell ourselves that that is just the way it is. We don't go to the gym or do the work to get a promotion and we tell ourselves that is just who we are. Well, we aren't going to do that anymore. If you want to transform yourself then you have to make the choice. You've got to make the choice right now to be better and to believe that you can be.
You need to bring people into your life that have been through whatever hurdles you are going through. If you are trying to get back in shape, find someone who has fought that battle before and ask them for help. You are not required to do this alone. Success leaves clues. You also need to put yourself in the proper environment for your success. Think about your life and ask yourself if the environment you are in is conducive to the success that you want to achieve. If not, change your environment. Stop hanging around the people that don't want to see you succeed.
Lastly, focus on the proper curriculum. I know this sounds boring but if you want to be successful then you need to find the proper information to help you succeed. When you want to do better in any field you should be reading books, investing in programs, and talking to the experts that are going to help you grow in that field. To change your life you've got to make a choice to be better and to believe. Make the choice.
It all starts with you.
