To do the best you can, you must ask yourself the right questions. You can’t do your best if you don’t ask yourself the right questions. You must be honest with yourself. Life is change. Without change, their is no life, no growth. And to change yourself, you must ask the right questions. In his book, Running The Gauntlet, Jeffrey Hayzlett writes, “Change begins by changing the questions.” He is right. If you don’t like where you are, change it. If you don’t like what you are doing, change it. No one is going to do it for you. Remember, you can’t grow without change. And change is painful, but you need it to move forward.
You may not like where you are right now. You are not happy with yourself. You are discouraged. You are angry. It is okay to feel like that. But the solutions to your problems are not in your feelings, they are in your doings. Think about that.
Maybe where you are is the right place for you to be right now. If that is the case with you, you must find ways to make where you are better. You must change how you see where you are. You must change how you think about where you are. Norman Vincent Peale said, “Change your thoughts and you change your world.” Change your thoughts and your life will change. Change your thoughts and your environment will change. Change your thoughts and your feelings will change.
Be happy with where you are. It is your place to be. Focus on the positive things that are happening around you. Don’t let your negative thoughts block your opportunities. As you are aware, there are opportunities everywhere. So don’t miss them. When you do this, you learn how to master your life.
