THE DAY THAT TURNS YOUR LIFE AROUND
(Resource: 7 Strategies for WEALTH & HAPPINESS, by Jim Rohn)
"If you keep on doing the same things you’ve always done …
you’ll keep on getting the same things you’ve always gotten."
To change your circumstances, you must first change YOURSELF (i.e. your Habits and Routines).
Then, and ONLY then, will you do that "something" different that will turn your life around. Question is … Do you REALLY want to change? … Can you say to yourself -- “I’m READY, now!”
Disgust* with your current situation intensifies the Desire to change ... till you finally make the Decision to do so. At this point Determination "kicks in," and you will never be the same person again … you have taken another step (dare we say … LEAP) forward in becoming that person God meant for you to be!
So … are you going to wait till your life is almost gone to become "that" person? Why not this year … this month … this week … WHY NOT today !!! Yes, TODAY can be that day that turns your life around. No one else can do it for you – you must do it YOURSELF … and the best way to "get the ball rolling" is to sit down right now with paper and pen and "brainstorm" – write down everything you can think of that you’d like to do and have … places you’d like go … people you’d like to get closer to … who/what you’d like to become (i.e. DREAMS/ GOALS). (To really get this ball rolling – take our [free] workshop!)
Say YES to Yourself, and YES to Life. YES, this can be the day that you start reaping all the blessings Life has to offer, and is "eager" to give you … so WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ??? -- Go get that paper and pen … and START WRITING!
(* The 2 primary sources of motivation -- Desperation and Inspiration … often a combination of both. In his book, Awaken the Giant Within, Anthony Robbins states, “…when people finally do change, they do it in a moment, don't they? There's an instant when the change occurs. Why not make that instant now? Usually its the getting ready to change that takes people time ... the problem .. is that change is often a should and not a must. The only way we’re going to make a change now is if we create a sense of urgency that’s so intense that we’re compelled to follow through… I’ve found that 20% of any change is knowing how; but 80% is knowing why. If we gather a set of strong enough reasons to change, we can change in a minute something we’ve failed to change for years.” … Obviously you’re not going to lose 30 lbs in an instant … what we’re talking about is your “frame of mind” [mindset/attitude]. That can be changed in an instant … and once changed, anything is possible!)
The "master key" is SELF-DISCIPLINE. Start this process of becoming the person you were meant to be by doing something small/easy that can be done right now, in just a few minutes (like starting your master list of desires/goals) … and, as Jim Rohn puts it –
Out of this [small] beginning you’ll learn how it feels to be disciplined. And from there, the Sky’s the limit! ["Success breeds success."] ` … the key is to take a step … today.
Start reading good books … today. Start setting your first goal … today.
Start a sensible weight-reduction plan … today. Write a long-overdue letter … today.
… Make this -- the first day of your new beginnings – a part of the week of new beginnings. Go ahead, see how many things you can start and continue in this, your week of new beginnings. [Do this each week for a month ... it will become a habit, and] you’ll never be claimed by the past!
[A parting thought/truth:] The real value in setting goals is not in their achievement. The acquisition of the things you want is strictly secondary. The major reason for setting goals is to compel you to become the person it takes to achieve them ... the greatest value is in the skills, knowledge, discipline, and leadership qualities you'll develop in reaching those goals.
