Actions Speak Louder Than Words
Anyone can talk the talk, but do they walk the walk? It is easy to talk about change in your life and talking about change is an important step in the process..we think about change, create a strategy and a step by step plan, we might talk about it, and then we proceed to action...many people don't get to this last most critical step in their lives...and I think that the reason for this is that people are not changing for themselves, they are changing to propitiate others, which is for all the wrong reasons...People need to want change for themselves in order for long-term success or success at all to take place and transform lives...There is much more quiescence in our society than change actually happening in peoples lives, change is happening all around us and it passes us by...People feel safe and satisfied with their own status quo and we are lazy and continue plodding along in our own rut content in some ways but complaining because nothing good is happening...Remember, to have good things happen we must be an active participant in the "movement of good" and that starts and ends with US! Complain and remain!! Negative thoughts and negative actions only attracts more negativity..Fake it till you make it...don't allow circumstances to dictate your mood or your food because failure will surely ensue if you give in to the temptation of your circumstances or situations....we must have the strength and willpower to rise above what things "look like" to our naked eyes and change our mindsets and our perspectives...Start each day in a quiet place, meditate, pray, stretch your mind AND your body to get ready for the day this puts in a health state of mental and physical flexibility so that we can roll with the punches that the day will always throw! Also, I believe that it is helpful to give yourself a few good positive phrases and think about the things that we are thankful and grateful for so that we recognize and give focus to the positive things that are indeed happening to us or for us so that we can begin to truly SEE that there is positive action in our lives...Start today and make your actions line up with your words, lets make a plan for positive, healthy change in our lives and do it for ourselves! Smile! Inhale, relax and start to picture what your life success looks like, hold that focus and begin to watch that unfold! Success is coming, don't let failure keep you off track!
