According to Brian Tracy, “You have within you the potential to accomplish wonderful things with your life. Your greatest responsibilities are to dream big dreams, decide exactly what you want, make a plan to achieve it… take action every single day in the direction of your dreams and goals, and resolve to never, never, never give up. When you take these actions, you put yourself on the side of the angels. You become unstoppable and your success becomes inevitable.”

It is your life. You are responsible for making it better than it was yesterday. To do that, you must decide exactly what you want to do with your life. Remember, your dreams are not going to come true just by thinking positively about them. You must take action. You must get out of your comfort zone. You must have the courage to do what you haven’t done before. Positive thinking is good, but not enough to make your dreams come true.

If you want your dreams, your goals to come true, you must do something about them. You must put your dreams in front of you every day. When you do nothing about your dreams, you are actually doing something about them. You are ignoring them. You are closing the door to your success. You are closing the door to your future life. You can change that by doing a little more than you have always done in the past. Your ability to do a little more can change your life. Nothing happens without taking action.

Do not let what happened to you in the past to determine your present life. To do that, you must learn how to guide your mind against negative thoughts. In the words of Nigel Cumberland, “Not allowing what happened in the past to determine your future starts in your mind.” If you want to get to where you want to be, you must do everything within your power to protect your mind from invaders.

If want to achieve your dreams, don’t be afraid to follow your own path. Dan Rockwell writes, “Adopt practices that express who you are to become who you aspire to be.” That is the fastest way to get to where you want to be. The question is: Are you ready to walk alone?

Change Takes Time

Why do you want to change your life? Do you have what it takes to change your life? You can change your life if you believe you can. But you have got to be patient with yourself. Change takes courage. It takes time. You can do it if you believe you can.

Assess yourself. Make sure you check yourself for your strengths and weaknesses. Make sure you are ready to make the change that you want to make. Don’t change anything when you are not ready. Don’t change because people ask you to change. You change your life when you are ready. It is never too late to change what you don’t like in your life. It is never too late to modify what is not working well for you. It is never too late to maintain what is working for you.

Keep and maintain what is working for you. People try to change when they are not ready. If you are not ready and you jump into changing your life, for sure, you will mess up. Change takes time. Change is difficult. Change is inevitable. We are changing every day. But before you change, make sure you are changing for the right reasons. And if you are changing for the right reasons, be patient. Change is not going to happen overnight.

Ask yourself: “Do I have what it takes to achieve my goals?

Changing your life is important. Whether you like it or not, you are changing every day, and you will continue to change. If you are not changing, you are dying. If you are not adding value to your life, you are not helping your life. If you are not moving, you are staggering. If you don’t have a plan, you are wandering. If you don’t know where you are going, you are confused.

Believe you can change your life. According to Norman Vincent Peale, “You can if you think you can.” Do you really believe in yourself? If not, why?
