Obviously Obvious Friday (Jan 29, 2016)

I’m gonna tell ya some things you already know.  Nothing new, just stuff you’ve heard before.

: Things will not change until you change some things.

Everyone wants to change something about themselves, their lives, their world, but few actually even begin to make the small necessary changes that yield big, positive results.  We try, but we fall, and then we give up.  Or, we never even get started; we get stuck either wishing for change, or complaining about the way things are…and nothing changes.  But why waste time and energy wishing or complaining when that energy can be channeled into making positive progress?

Key points-

  1. Believe you can change for the better.  Believe you deserve to change for the better.
  2. Make a list.  What do you want to be, to do, to have, to experience?  How must you change in order to achieve these fantastic goals?
  3. Start small.  For example, watch less TV in favor of gaining new knowledge, or getting fitter, or spending more quality time with your family or yourself.  Save $X per day, or per week, money that you would have frittered away on things you don’t really need or that don’t really help you achieve your overriding mission.
  4. Fight for it.  Do not give up.  

Remember: if you keep doin’ what ya been doin’, you’ll keep gettin’ what ya been gettin’.

There ya go.   TGIOF.

About malcolm2030

I started my formal study of a traditional Japanese martial art during my freshman year in college in late 1990 and in early 2017, I took a leap of faith and have been teaching traditional martial arts and fitness on a full-time basis. I enjoy researching and exploring topics ranging from health and fitness, brain science and quantum physics, to relational dynamics, energy, and optimum living. I believe that we all should be daily evolving toward our true potential; while there will be times when we fall back, or get pushed back, or knocked down, the sum of our steps over a given period of time should be forward.
