When it comes to change, we don’t want to hear it. We don’t want to talk about it. We don’t want to experience it.

If you want to live a fulfilled life, you can’t do it without change. As I write this note, I am changing. I am Learning. I am developing myself.

Don’t fight change. Change is not about changing your physical body. Change is about changing your soul. Change is not about you. It is about your soul. It is about your inner life. It is about your spiritual life.

To change your life, according to Nelson Mandela, you must do these four things:

You must conduct yourself with morality. Mandela said, “Those who conduct themselves with morality, integrity and consistency need not to fear the forces of inhumanity and cruelty.”

You must dedicate yourself to what you do. In Mandela’s words, “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

You must conquer your fear. According to Mandela, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

You must learn from pleasant and unpleasant experiences. “It is in the character of growth that we should learn from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences.”

Change is the way.

How To Take action

Know what you want. You can’t take action without knowing what you want to achieve. Have a detailed plan. Know yourself. Know what you can do. Know what you can’t do. Go for what you can do. Seek help for what you can’t do.

You have got to be satisfied with your life. Self- satisfaction is the beginning of success.

Don’t resist change. Life is all about change. The more you resist change, the more you are holding yourself back. You can’t move forward without change. So why not embrace it?

Believe you can succeed. If you believe in yourself, there is nothing you cannot achieve. It is your conviction that something is true. Before you take action, don’t doubt yourself for a second. If you do, you have defeated yourself.

You must eliminate “I Can’t” from your head. You must replace it with positive words.

Don’t let your mistakes make you. Without mistakes, there is no experience. You need mistakes to gain experience in your life. Don’t be afraid of making them.

Follow your passion. It is good to follow your passion. But before you commit yourself to your passion, you must test it.

Learn from your past, but live in the moment. Don’t live in the past. It is gone. It has nothing to do for you anymore.

Life is a risk. Risk doing something positive, no matter what. If you risk doing nothing, you risk losing everything.

Take responsibility for your actions. It pains to hold yourself accountable for your actions. But without that, you can’t strengthen your muscles. Learning comes from taking responsibility for your actions. It is the way forward, if you want to grow.

You should never focus on problems. The more you focus on your problems, the more you attract problems into your life. People love solutions. If you want to win in life, be a solutionist.
