IT’S Not Going to Change. You Will.

It’s got to get better this year.

It’s got to work out this time.

It’s going to change.

Nope. No. It won’t. Your life will repeat. It will follow a pattern. It will habitually reproduce your outcomes.

There is one way out of reliving the same things over and over.

You change.

HE, SHE, IT will not change. YOU are the one who needs to change.

Your partner will not change. Your family will not change. Your job will not change. Your financial situation will not change.

YOU change. Then see what happens.

Recently, my friend told me he was having problems with his kid. He decided to try something new. He changed. He went to a therapist.

The therapist told him this awesome news: He can’t control his kid. But if HE CHANGES, things will change. If HE LEARNS SOMETHING NEW, things will change. If HE STARTS BEHAVING DIFFERENTLY, his situation will change. The kid doesn’t have to do therapy with him (although that would be ideal!).

YOU change. Then see what happens.

Free yourself from complaining about your current situation. Free yourself from worry about others. Free yourself from trying to change other people. Leave other people alone.

Here is the most powerful thing any human being can do: YOU CHANGE.

Is change easy? No. That’s why most people don’t do it.

Is doing what you’re currently doing and getting the same outcome awesome? Great. Keep doing it.

Is doing what you’re currently doing and getting the same outcome upsetting you? Great. You have an opportunity on your hands.

Beautiful, smart, you know what I’m talking about reader: No one in your life wants to change for you. So do yourself a favor. Let them all off the hook, because hooks are sharp. Let yourself off the hook. Now that you’re off that hook, take back your incredible power.

You change. Then see what happens. Loving you out there! XO
