Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit. With these benefits come the keys to success, which is happiness.
Success is not the key to happiness, however, happiness is the key to success. If you are actually loving what you are doing you will be successful at it.
What are the changes and adjustments that you’re making to ensure your success?
With 2019 well on the way, there are less than 267 days left in 2019Live CountDown to 2020 and just as many opportunities to make those changes.
Imagining yourself without that job is a sure way to appreciate those tasks that you may consider menial or easy. Your ability to do those tasks, your motivation to actively achieve them and do them well.
Furthermore, your attitude while doing them determines those results. Then why aren’t more people just casually, purposefully, and genuinely happy or project happiness more often or just in general, out of habit or practice?
SEASON OF CHANGE
A New Year should equal a New You. Although we have 365 opportunities every year to change, there are those who simply refuse to take advantage of that bonus to make whatever changes they need or feel necessary for those changes to occur, then adjust themselves accordingly.
Not because they worry about things that won’t even matter in a few days, weeks or months but because in life things are rarely perfect when we want them to be.
Nevertheless, there is an opposition to all things. Up-down, left-right, good-bad… The scale is always balanced and people are the only creatures on the planet that have a choice on which side of their own personal scale of balance to choose to be on.
Regardless of how much emphasis you are putting into living that life to its fullest one should never give up on their dreams.
If you’re pushing harder than you did yesterday or last year, you’re working to make your tomorrow a better one. That power to make changes makes the New You.
Regarding the fear of change?
Running away and giving up on your problems doesn’t solve them. Facing and embracing them does. If you want successful outcomes in life, you can park in those tempting parking spaces on the road of life.
You are today, where your thoughts have brought you. Tomorrow, you will be where your thoughts will bring you. Being passionate about your life, taking chances and learning to live without the fear of failing is a
positive life change that will bring out the new you! Passing failure often leads to success!
We are blessed with excellent opportunities to make things better for ourselves every day. There is absolutely no reason why you should not take advantage of those very same opportunities to make things better for ourselves, families, relations and those around us. Making things better for them, as well as our own. As long as we keep trying to make things work.
What you become from these experiences is far more important than what you are going through to get there. What you receive, is influenced by what you become from choosing to change.
Is It Hard To Change?
Yes, of course, it is difficult to change, that’s to be expected. You can”t expect change to occur without the manifestation of a particular action. Sometimes those actions hurt like hell. Nevertheless, It is in having the option, that whenever a new day arrives, that you will be able to try again. That is a tremendous benefit.
What changes have I made so far this year?
When it comes to home and family life, I wrestle daily to be better myself. By being a recently separated grandmother, that lives with three of her adult children. My daily activities include a whole lot of ME TIME. When up until last year, a substantial amount of my time includes taking care of a spouse, (2009 to 2018, no longer the case), and spent recovering from a six-year span of chronic seizures that occurred as a result of having a 3.5-centimeter meningioma from my brain in October 2005, I suffered from 2006 to 2012 and was considered a liability due to the frequency of seizure activity. Also, no longer a problem.
Imagine this change. Mind you… I have always been kind of sickly, but would never let that sickness, Asthma hinder me in any way. Remember, there have not always been inhalers, but I managed to get by… Always hoping for tomorrow. I never gave up. Now I am here writing to you, whoever you may be. Letting you know that even though the New Year is No Longer new and whether you want it to occur or not, Time, Fate and Destiny will make certain that change will occur.
Not that my kids complain of my caterpillar-like progress, but by that final stage to be compared to that of a beautiful butterfly. It is the results of change that make the difference to you and those around you. I can personally attest to that. That it definitely feels good. Moreover, any of my children, all successful in their own way, btw, would say, “Hush mom, you took care of us, it’s our turn.”
This is a direct result of a positive change.
