Why You Must Foster Positive Change In Your Life

If you look back over the past three years, you’ll notice that your life has changed in many ways. Above getting older, there are things in your life that changed. Perhaps you’ve changed job or graduated from college or started going to the gym or stopped smoking or got married or you lost a loved one or launch a business…

Of course, you had nothing to do with some of the changes you’ve experienced; life happens. However, many of these changes were within your control. When you look at those controllable changes, were they the ones you wanted? Did those changes contribute to bringing you forward?

During the upcoming years, your life will continue to change. Some of the changes you’ll experience will continue to be out of your control—although you’ll control your reaction to those changes. That said, for the most part, your life will reflect the changes you decide to embrace and those you create.

You don’t have to be a victim of change; you can engineer it. You can see a better, brighter future for yourself and work diligently to make it your reality.

Whatever the current state of your life, you can change it. It will demand discipline and dedication, but you can turn things around for yourself: if you want it “bad enough.”

You can foster positive change in your life. In fact, I would go as far as to say that you’re responsible for fostering positive change in your life. Otherwise, like a ship drifting at sea, your life will continue to change but perhaps not in the way you would want it to.

For your ship to reach its destination, you must be intentional about changing yourself (i.e., growing) and your circumstances (i.e., taking action on your goals).

In three years, your life will have changed, but you can actively participate in that change; you have an opportunity to shape your life.

In the past, you may not have been as intentional as you would have liked; you may have allowed yourself to drift away. But it’s not too late to make a change. The ability to change the direction of your life is a gift. Make the most of it.
