an excerpt from my forthcoming book Shift Into High Gear
It's healthy to embrace and respond to change as the new normal. In this day and era, with a volatile and unstable global economy, your prosperity and your future will be determined by how you deal with all those changes. For Change is all around us, and ever happening with or without us. Change is neither good nor bad, neither right nor wrong, change just reshapes life.
What you make of it is up to you, how you react to change, how you deal with changing circumstances around you greatly impacts your life. Life is not something that happens to you, life is what you make of it.
Because there is a big difference between deciding and doing.
Accepting change is good. Thinking about it is good too. But one needs to make a conscious choice of embracing change rather than simply embracing one's good intentions. Otherwise, we will continue to be our own victim, which will keep us caught in the same place.
The real measure of change is; can you change yourself?
It is as bad as you want it to be.
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who really make it in this world are the ones who get up and look for the circumstances they want and if they can’t find them, they make them.*
Do you think that what has happened to you is bad ?
Is it a situation you wish you weren’t in?
Then Change it.
Look for the positives and realize that life presents many lessons to learn from. Think about what you can do yourself to turn around these difficult circumstances and grow from. If you wish you had a better relationship with somebody significant in your life, work to get just that. If you know that you have unhealthy eating habits, and have just been brushing them aside because you are “too busy,” make an effort to bring about change. Go for what you really want out of life. Maintain a positive outlook. Magic can happen.
It's all up to you!
Shift into high gear and May you live every day of your life.
…..and I know you can do it, its time you understood that too!
