To Change Your Life…
Wanting to change your life?
No one changes unless they want to.
Not if you beg them.
Not if you shame them.
Not if you use reason, emotion, or tough love.
There’s only one thing that makes someone change:
their own realization that they need to do it.
And there’s only one time it will happen: when they decide they’re ready.
– Wise words by Lori Deschene of TinyBuddha
Can you change your life? I’ve long had this interest in how people change their lives. Sometimes the change is an improvement, sometimes it’s for the worse, or sometimes neither — but in nearly every case, something mysterious happens. They make a decision and they become a different person. I’ve known so many people who seemed hopeless, but suddenly the next day they’re a new person. Whether they knew it or know, they had found the secret sauce that allowed them some massive transformation. From what I can tell, there’s usually some singular even in their lives, even when they don’t remember, that changed everything for them. Have you gone through such a change or have you witnessed it in other people? What seems to be the catalyst for this change?
