If what you are doing isn’t working, then something has to change.
What should you change?
Anything. Your habits. Your routines. Your perspective. Your assumptions—definitely your assumptions. Assess everything you are doing (or not doing) and understand why. Are you running from Paper Tigers? Are you avoiding your passions?
It’s okay if you don’t like what you find. But now what are you going to do about it? What you need is momentum. A little step towards progress and success, and then another and another.
Smarter people have said it better than me —
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”Mark Twain
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”Albert Einstein
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”Maya Angelou
It doesn’t matter what problem you are dealing with—use it. Make it a part of your story. Flip it on its head and make it something you are proud of.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
