The truth is, change can be hard.
Change can be forbidding.
Because our results come from our actions.
Our actions stem from how we think.
How we think is driven by our beliefs.
To get different (and better) results we have to take different actions.
And that means that sometimes we have to change what we believe about life and ourselves, by making the effort to change what we may have believed about life and ourselves for many years.
So if you want radically different results from the average, typical, normal results you're getting at the moment, you may have to change from the average, typical, and “normal” thought patterns you're practising, or to be more precise, what we perceive to be "normal thinking".
And we all know what happens to those who are “different”, how their actions, ideas, concepts, can be viewed. That's frequently the biggest deterrent to making changes in life; "WHAT WILL PEOPLE THINK?", we ask ourselves .
Provided our actions don't intrude on the rights, property or freedom of others, we can pretty well decide to be, do, and have anything we want.
All we have to do is pay the price.
And frequently the price isn't always to do with money. It can be family time, personal relationships, personal stress levels, sleepless nights, frazzled days, that get laid on the altar of success...we can end up achieving what we thought "success" to be, only to be physically, mentally and emotionally bankrupt.
What people think of that is their business. If that's the price we pay, and accept it as that, like a hangover after a wildly enjoyable night of revelry, then it's our business and we live with it.(And that’s a philosophy I share with you in Common Sense Wellness™).
Like it or not, our ultimate success or failure in our aims in life is largely up to us.
It’s our choice, and we’re free to make any choice we wish.
But, but, but, we’re NOT free to avoid the consequences of our choices.
