Be Your Own Agent of Change
Change is inevitable!
When you become your own advocate for change, you can commit yourself in the right direction with a sense of purpose. Without this insight, you are essentially letting other situations or people determine your course. Make time in your life to explore your goals and desires. It is an important exercise that helps to guide your development.
I knew a mom at my child's elementary school who was one of the most committed people that I have ever met. She was the kind of mom that did so much, that no matter how many hours you spent volunteering, you still felt guilty that you couldn't do more. She was elected president of the PTA. The summer before she started her 2 year term, she had a heart attack. She was forced by her own health to reexamine her priorities and resigned. Why am I sharing this account? I truly believe that if you don't take time to make the necessary changes that you need to in your life, then life will make the changes for you. When this happens, it's never quite as gentle.
If you repetitively find yourself saying, I need to change this particular something, but never do, then it's time to pay attention to your needs and address the change.
If you need inspiration, search for it until you find it. It will be worth your while.
Believe in yourself and your abilities. A positive attitude is sometimes all we have at first. Build on this daily.
Set up reasonable goals, the kind that you know you can achieve, and then see them through. This act helps to build momentum.
Expect setbacks, but don't give up. Acknowledge them and continue.
Confront your fears, because you are stronger than you realize.
If you need help along the way, get it. Asking for help is a sign of strength-really!
The process will take time, but remember it is your journey and you are worth it.
Be your own agent of change and choose the change that YOU desire!
Change is not merely necessary to life - it is life.
