Can You Spare Some Change ?

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” ~ Maria Robinson, American author

Have you already identified an area of your life you want to change, but you keep putting off doing something about it? Perhaps you’ve read all the ‘how to’ guides under the sun and researched every technique needed to make that change a reality… yet you don’t ever take any action.

I’m sure at one time or another you’ve promised yourself that you’ll begin a new habit another day: you’ll lead generate tomorrow; you’re going to practice your scripts on Monday; you’ll change companies when its time for your split to roll back. All too often, however, the promised day passes by and still you haven’t taken any action to move toward your goal. 

It’s frustrating because you want to do it, but you always delay the first – and arguably the most important – day of change. Eventually, it seems such an impossible task that you give up before you try anything.

But it is possible to start those changes today - and you can begin right here and now.

By postponing the first day of change, we seek to avoid that critical moment when we have to finally experience discomfort. You’ve probably used excuses like:

I’m not ready . . . .

The timing’s all wrong . . . .

It’s too much hard work . . . .

I’m too busy . . . .

All of the above could be reasons you use to justify not taking action. On the surface, they may appear to be valid arguments but, deep down, they’re more likely to be a delaying tactic to put off taking that critical first step towards change.

Unless you get serious and totally commit to the changes needed for a new level of accomplishment, you’ll find the same old excuses apply equally no matter when you aim to begin.

Be honest with yourself – if you’re not ready now, then when will you be?  Nothing changes until something moves!
