I recently saw a quote on Facebook that said, “If you change nothing, nothing will change.” When I read this, it just hit me that yes, how true! If we keep doing the same things, we will get the same result.
It is important to always create change in our lives so we do not become stagnant. Once stagnation sets in, negativity creeps into our consciousness and we begin to blame others for what is happening, or not happening, to us. This is one reason why I will be making some changes to Diversity Rules in order to create some new momentum to begin to carry it to a higher level of excellence.
I have also been reflecting upon my life and where I am at the moment. There is a level of complacency and stagnation that has begun to take hold. I have decided to initiate some changes that will serve to propel me forward and create new energy to fulfill the destiny that is before me. I encourage you to do the same. Some of the choices I shall make will be difficult ones, but deep inside I know whatever I ultimately decide, they will be the right decisions.
You may be saying to yourself that you are content and no change is necessary. That is a sign that you need to change. That is complacency! We can always better ourselves and do more than what we are doing in order to create a more meaningful impact in our lives and in the lives of others. There is always room to improve and become more fulfilled and content.
Once a person stops growing, they die, mentally. No matter how fulfilled and content one is, there is always something greater to reach for. When the time is right and the universe deems it so and feels a person is ready to move forward more, it shall be so.
What is it that is holding you back? What do you need to change in your lives right now that will create some positive energy to propel you forward to new heights of achievement and success? Decide how you are going to approach dispelling what is holding you back and develop a plan to move yourself forward. You will not regret your decision.
Change is always painful too. Once a decision to change has been made, forces of inertia begin to swirl about us to try to sway our decision and create fear within ourselves to stop what we have put into action. Do not succumb to fear and doubt nor listen to those who try to convince you to change your mind. Continue forward and embrace change courageously and without regret.
