Chance or Change, What’s it Going to Be?



“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.”   Jim Rohn

I started listening to Jim Rohn back in the 80’s when his material was on tape and I loved his clear ‘in your face’ quotes. What I’m hearing here is, “it’s all up to you, stop sitting around waiting for someone to wave a magic wand for the miracle to happen.” Yes we are at the time of the year when the New Year energy gives us a kick up the backside to verbalise what changes we want to make. As we all know though, words can be cheap. I would say though that in this instance words are actually expensive. What is it costing you to stay where you are, to stay stuck in the habits of a lifetime? We all know that unless we change the activity, the outcomes don’t change, but we’re going to have to take our heads out of the sand for long enough to see the changes we need to make, and the message is strong enough for us to want to do it. 

What is it going to take to say enough is enough, it’s time to make a stand? What is going to take to say I’m sick of waiting for something else to happen, I’m sick of getting my present results, I’m sick of repeating the same year over and over. The 3rd ‘C’ in this equation is choice. We can all exercise that choice to take a chance so that our lives can change. In the words of a key note speaker I heard about 10 years ago which stuck with me, “When would NOW be a good time?”  

Enjoy making the changes you know you want!
