You are worth the effort and the time it takes to do as well as possible in life. In case you aren’t convinced, here are seven reasons why you should undergo the work it takes to change.
1. You’re not satisfied with the current state of your life.
If there’s something in your life you aren’t happy with, no one else is more equipped to change that thing but you! Plan and simple in concept, even though not necessarily in execution.
2. You can do better in life for the change.
Hopefully, you are looking to change for the better. If you follow through and make needed lifestyle changes, your life will be better overall for the change.
3. You can inspire others to change.
People tend to respond very well to images. Whether or not you’re aware, you are already providing an “image” of your life to those around you, and that image can inspire. If you live your life in a way that another person aspires to live, you can inspire their change! Just by doing what it takes to do better, you pave the way for others to do better.
4. Your changes will improve your relationships.
The change you need might be in the interest of your relationships. What you do impacts everyone in your life. Working on your progression and expansion individually will impact your relationships. It’ll either help them appreciate you more, or show you the need to let go of those relationships.
5. Change is adventurous!
If you’re seeking some adventure, there’s no better way to get that than by embarking on a personal revolution. You know what you seek, but you don’t know what you’ll find along the way.
6. You deserve the best.
You deserve the best and you gotta believe this. Treat you as you’d treat your best friend. Assuming you’re a decent person, you probably would want to treat your best friend fabulously. Are you treating you fabulously? If not, do what it takes to do better.
7. You recognize the need for betterment in the world.
Your personal transformation can set off social transformation. Keep in mind that you do not exist in a vacuum. There is a connection between what you do/how you do it and your impact in the world. Why not use your personal energy to help bring needed change to the world? Your change can be a gift to the world.
We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.
– Mahatma Gandhi
