They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. This is an old Chinese proverb but it is as true today as it was then.
Sometimes change is thrust upon us and that is outside our control but the real change that makes a difference, is the change that YOU decide to make, the change over which YOU have control.
Change can seem a massive challenge and can take you out of your comfort zone. This can be really scary and that is why it just doesn’t happen with a lot of people. Any change you make – however small – can have an amazing effect on your life. Your self esteem grows, your confidence soars and what happens when you gain in confidence? You try more new things and you venture even more outside your comfort zone.
Think back to when you were a child:
We all dreamed of being whatever we wanted to be.
An astronaut; a famous dancer; to climb Mount Everest; becoming Prime Minister.
The thought never entered our heads that we couldn’t do any of these things –
but somewhere along the way, as we grew up, we just let life and living steal our dreams.
Maybe you have fulfilled all those dreams and that is great but I am sure there’s always room for more!
So how about 2012 being the year that puts you back in control of your future, the year when you start to believe in your dreams again.
What about going on a journey over the next few months by starting to make some small changes in your life?
You will have to Dare2Change some things, you will have to step outside that comfort zone and you will have to take action! If your dream is big enough and you are prepared to focus and set your goals then you can start to make those dreams come true.
