One of my favorite mentors of all time, the late JIM ROHN said “In order for things to change, you have to change.”
It all comes down to having a “WILLINGNESS” for change.
In order to reach a full willingness, the realization of the needed change must reach a cognitive and emotional acceptance that the change must take place.
There are 3 stages for change:
- Understanding the reasons for change.
- Accepting necessity for change.
- Desire to engage change.
“Be not afraid of growing slowly. Be only afraid of standing still” – Chinese Proverb
If you have the desire to grow, an openness to change, and the ability to accept new experiences into your life, then the things you need to develop yourself will slowly fall into your lap.
If you want change in your life, the fastest way to get it is to seek the advise of other people.
It can be difficult to see things objectively when we’re used to doing the same old routine day in and day out.
Getting a coach or a mentor, or following websites like my blog, allow you to soak in new ideas that you may never have thought of before.
I wouldn’t be anywhere near where I am today without all of the books, mentors and programs I’ve allowed myself to soak in.
If I had to do it all on my own, I’d be going at a snails pace and the growth I’d have experienced would have come at a much slower rate.
Take it upon yourself to enjoy and relish in how valuable a great book can be. Someone spent several years of their life writing a great book for you, and you get to enjoy it and soak it in without having to learn it all yourself!
My message to you today is to embrace “WILLINGNESS” to Change.
Have a Blessed Day!
