That’s a question I can’t stop asking myself since yesterday. It was a good, actually great Saturday evening I went to watch a movie in the cinema. The movie did not start after 30 minutes from the time it was supposed to start. All the people who have paid money and devoted time to watch this movie did nothing.
So, I went to check what was happening and if there was a technical issue. The people in the hall did nothing. This made me think how these people react about the really significant and big things in life. Do they do NOTHING about improving their business? Do they do NOTHING about having healthy and happy relationships with the people around them? Do they do NOTHING about the way they feel about themselves? Do they do NOTHING about their most intimate and heartfelt quests? If you cannot react to even a simple situation like this what do you do in the other ones. Do you wait for someone to get the job done for you, fix your relationships, and make your business thrive? Or you expect magical miracles happening to change everything for you and live in fairytale world?
Another more useful and active way to live is to approach the situations in your life with confidence and courage. Do something that gets you in a better position towards where you want to be. The facts in life prove that sometimes things inevitably get out of control. Yes, we are in charge to understand that this is our only life and we CAN and HAVE TO take actions.
As individuals we have no idea how powerful we are because this power is covered by inner doubts, lack of real confidence and feeling guilty like you are not good enough. Sounds like you sometimes? Face yourself and make the decision to make decisions in the moments of DECISIONS. Don’t run away, but take an active stand and make a choice. If you don’t make a choice someone else will make it for you anyway. So, use your power until you have it in your own hands and control. You can start with small choices and baby steps as long as you start creating a habit to make choices. The more choices you make the more confident you will feel in your ability to take an active stand in your life.
Everyone you admire, people who have affected and changed the world, made choices. They made BRAVE, DIFFERENT CHOICES. People like Einstein, Ghandi or Mandela had huge certainty and confidence in the choices they made. Choices that changed the world we know in positive, innovative way and proved what real values do with extraordinary people. What could you achieve with your values in your own LIFE? A choice made counts only if it’s kept in tough times. Learn what type of choices will lift us and help us expand who we are exactly in those moments.
Making DIFFERENT, BRAVE choices makes you a DIFFERENT, BRAVE person. You become the change you wish to see in the world. If we want as society, world citizens changes, we have to start with ourselves at first place. Telling you this, I know how hard is to change yourself. But I can tell you the new YOU that YOU become is worthy it the effort. Do it for yourself and start now. The quicker you start making aware, brave and different choices your inner and outer world will start shifting.
It’s all in your hands.
