Have the Courage to Change

How many times have you witnessed someone take the easy way out or stick to what they deem to be safe?  I personally see this happen all the time, and if I’m being honest, I’ve been in this space before.  Maybe you want to go back to school, lose weight, or change careers, BUT something keeps getting in the way.  What prevents us from not only going after these goals but also accomplishing these goals?  From my experience, it boils down to two common obstacles that get in people’s way: Confidence and Commitment.

Be Confident

“I don’t think I can do it, it probably won’t work, I don’t know how.” Do these sound familiar?  Our confidence and how we view ourselves plays a really big role in our success as individuals.  In fact, having low confidence, in my opinion, is the BIGGEST obstacle of them all because it can make you talk yourself out of even trying.  I look at confidence like I view my checking account – it’s a system of deposits and withdrawals.  When you deposit money into your account, it grows.  Your confidence is the same way!  Practice engaging in activities that allow you to make small but positive boosting deposits into your confidence.  To the contrary, your bank account or your confidence level can suffer if all you do is withdraw from it or have one failure after another. Try your best to mitigate the amount of withdrawals you encounter by making smart and well-planned decisions.

Stay Committed

Commitment: The state or quality of being dedicated to a cause or activity.  Too often, we will start a task and never finish.  Ask yourself, “What would happen to my life if I just finish this?”  Aren’t you curious?   You owe it to yourself to ride the wave.  Find comfort in knowing that this task won’t be easy – embrace that as one part of the process and remain committed.  There will ALWAYS be obstacles when working towards greatness; but you can’t use that as an excuse to not follow through. Focus on one or two things you would like to change, write them down, and once complete, check it off!

You really can make your life what you want it to be.  If you want to see a change, put some action behind it and just do it!  Be confident in your abilities and remain committed.

  1. Great job Kellie. Commitment is always my issue, but I started at the gym once again today. I already don’t want to go back, but everyday I’m going to ask myself what will happen if I lose these 20 pounds? I’m definitely curious!!!!

    Thanks for the motivation. Stay tuned for updates 🙂
