You possess all that you need to achieve your goals.

Stop complaining about how over weight you are, when you are eating anything that comes around and not going to to the gym. Don’t complain about the quality of your life if you are not doing anything to improve it. You have no right to complain about your pay when you are not not doing a thing to improve your skills. Change your mind and begin living a life of happiness.

Living happy is not a just an opportunity or a privilege. You have a responsibility to enjoy happiness. Decide and determine your own happiness.

You hold the key to change your life. Why are you complaining about how bad things are around you, If you are surrounding yourself with them? Begin by changing your mind and the way you look at things. Why are you complaining about the quality of friends you have when you entertain them?

Just because you have been invited doesn’t mean you have to attend. Just because someone has called you doesn’t  mean you have to call them back. If you are in a pub and someone is offering you alcohol doesn’t mean you have to consume it. You have the power to say no. Quit giving those lame excuses, you have the will power to do the right things.

Just because your homey’s are partying doesn’t mean you have to party. You have a responsibility to your own life. Just because you are down doesn’t mean you cannot get up. You will fall many times before you succeed. Just like like a baby falls many times when learning how to walk. Just because you have made mistakes in life doesn’t mean that’s the end of the world. Who does not make mistakes?

Change Your Mind and Change Your Life

If you are down, get up. Its time to make that important change and move your life to another level. Stop feeling pity for yourself. Yes, you are the reason why you are not employed. You are the one in that unhealthy relationship. But, what are you doing about it? You can change the way you feel by changing the way you think.

Self pity will only make you more miserable and sad. Self pity will not change anything; complaining will even compound your situation. Get a grip on your life by changing the way you think. Look, if you are not in control of your life someone else is. Someone else is making decisions for you; someone else is determining how much you should be paid.

When you change your mind set new doors begin to open up. You begin to write a whole new, better chapter of your life. You begin to possess the very things that you long for in your life. The talents, ideas, the gifts and imaginations you have all begin to come to life. Do not let your poverty mentality determine your destiny.

You begin to attract the very things that have eluded you before.  Look, God created you to succeed. Even before he created this world he had you in mind. Don’t allow your mind to be a stumbling block to your destiny. Do not be afraid of the unknown. If you can see the invisible you can do the impossible. Venture into the unknown and stop being afraid of the unfamiliar.

Your mind is the biggest asset and tool for improving your well being. It is in your mind that change is cultivated, nurtured and birthed. “Everything changes when you change” – Jim Rohn.

Why Important Change is Valuable

Change makes you break your cycle. It motivates you to look beyond your comfort zone. Change makes you venture into new dimensions of your life. It exposes you to things that you never would have experienced. With change you begin to look at life from a different perspective. Positive change makes you feel in control of your life.

I believe that positive transformation is a huge sign of ones personal growth. Not many people embrace change easily. It therefore, means that we must all strive to make positive transformation if we have to have an impact in our lives.

If you do not take the right steps to adapt, the world will leave you behind. After all we live in an ever changing environment. Those who succeed are those who embrace and harness change. Do not be shy from making positive changes in your life. The only way to keep improving your life is to keep on making positive changes. Those who succeed are those who are not scared to make and take bold decisions.

The world is not what it used to be 15 years ago. For example technology has tremendously evolved over the last decades. Take mobile phones, they have rapidly moved from analogue to digital. Now we have smart phones. Gone are the days when a phone was just used for voice calls only. Imagine how difficult it is for people who have resisted change.

emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing
what we link pain and pleasure to, we will instantly change our
” – Tony Robbins.

Be the change you would like to see in the world. Fear not your inadequacies. Learn from your past experiences above all take steps to make the change when necessary. I know that sudden change can make you lose your focus, always put your trust and faith in God Almighty he is a great shepherd. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths” – Proverbs.
