“The secret to change is to focus, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” - Socrates
Change happens when we shift our focus forward, start living in the now, and let go of the past. We've all heard this life advice a time or two and, there's no doubt it's message stings true. There's just one teeny catch: Change requires Choice.
There comes a time in each of our lives when a decision to change something must be made. It's the proverbial fork in the road. Go one way and you stay on the same path, safe and "sure" of what's ahead. Go the other way and you have no idea where you'll end up, but it's a chance you're willing to take because staying the same is no longer an option.
The brave souls who choose the other way quickly learn this road is off-beaten, bumpy and surprisingly painful. As each of us is traveling on a unique path. While we may cross paths or share similar journeys, no one path is exactly the same. Your road is not mine, nor mine yours. You must pave the way, your way, toward your goals and dreams with tough decisions, hard work, perseverance and, dare I say, even a little blood, sweat and (a lot) of tears.
Experience teaches us that if you embrace the pain, it will make you stronger. So, choose the other way. Choose to fight, turn your pain into power, and believe in yourself. Change can happen, it takes just one decision, one moment, one step at a time. Make the choice to Make the change!
Which one are you more committed to right now, your Past or your Future? The Old you or the New you? Staying the same or living your Best life?
CHALLENGE: Choose just ONE thing you want to change, no matter how small it may seem. Create a plan and make it happen!
Share your journey with us and challenge others to make the choice to make the change!
