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.

To Keep Your Life Moving Forward, Now Is The Right Time To Act

“If you’re waiting until you feel talented enough to make it, you’ll never make it.”- Criss Jami

“To keep life moving forward, hope for the best, take action, and be persistent.”- Debasish Mridha, MD

Happiness comes from your ability to take action. Unhappiness comes from your inability to take action. If you want to be happy, learn how to take action. If you want to be unhappy, learn how to procrastinate. You must act to make things happen for you. You know, if you don’t change yourself, your situation won’t change. Change starts with you, because you are in charge of your life.

Starting something of value is hard and scary. But if you have the courage to start something, your life will never be the same again. Once you have the courage to act, you must keep acting. It is easier to start something than it is to keep it going. Keeping it going is more important than starting it. If you can’t keep something going, why start it? And if you have the courage to start, to act, to change your life, don’t postpone it. The next day is busy, so do it now!

Whatever you have in mind that you want to do, start it before the fire is extinguished. Learn how to cook your food when the fire is really hot. Start your project before the enthusiasm fades away. You cannot achieve anything of value without enthusiasm. According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

Don’t look for a perfect place to start. Start where you are. Don’t look for new materials to start with, start with what you have.

Right now is the best time to start anything. Udai Yadla said, “When you wait for the right time, you’ll never know when it’s already too late.” So if you want to start something, start it today, not tomorrow.
