Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen - Micheal Jordan
We all reach points in our lives where we want change, in fact it's a constant requirement of human nature to grow. Whatever change you may want in your life right now is perfectly normal, be that losing weight, changing jobs, setting up a business, the direction of your business, your mindset, relationships (with yourself as well as others), your creativity, the list goes on. Those changes can often feel overwhelming, the end goal of where we want to be so far away from where we are now that the step to our goal or dream feels too big or too scary. That need for positive change can soon be replaced by feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, and fear, dis-empowering us from that place of desire for change, often times debilitating us in our every day lives and our personal, professional and creative growth.
Sitting still and doing nothing can often leave us with feelings of unfulfillment. That stagnation can lead to frustration, bitterness, resentment, anger and so much more. The difference in those who move through those challenging times of change lies in what they are prepared to do to make those changes and make their own difference. Rather than focusing on the resources they lack, wishing for that lottery win or that magic wand to make things magically appear they focus on the resources they have to hand and start taking those steps to create change. So many of us put off the changes we need to make because we are blinded by what we feel we are lacking, we fail to use our creative mind to see what resources we do have to hand and how we can best use them. It is our mindset and how we approach any challenge or change we are facing that will determine the out come.
We can all make our excuses, we can blame external factors, we can constantly live in the past and sit in the mindset of 'but this ... and if only that'. Whilst we may often find ourselves stuck in situations that aren't of our making, taking responsibility for getting ourselves out of a situation and creating our own change is where our power lies. We can talk the talk and keep telling ourselves, and others, what we are going to do to make those changes but until we make the decision and take that first step to do what it takes to make that change happen ... nothing is going to happen, and we continue to smoke the 'hopeium' pipe. Hope is the first step to change and a powerful tool to get us moving, but it is the faith in ourselves to take action where the magic happens.
