“It’s not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent; it’s the one that is most responsive to change.” – Charles Darwin

If you’re like most people, you don’t like the concept of change. For many, it mainly represents fear, another chance to fail or, more optimistically, a chance to step out into the unknown bravely. Change can be a powerful catalyst in your life. It can drive you to achieve things you never thought possible.

Because you have the power to choose, you have the ability to change. Change is a choice born of hope, faith, and courage. Before you can decide to change and create the energy necessary, remember, you must leave your past paradigms or self-limiting beliefs behind and step into the present. The present is the only place where you can create, and it’s the only place where hope, faith, and courage can exist.

Once you bid farewell to your ego-based past and embrace the power of now, you will begin to sense the genuinely unlimited potential that is you. You will start to free yourself from the chains of limited thoughts and begin to experience the beauty of unlimited thinking and endless possibilities. Shift your thinking about the change from fear to courage, from doubt to hope.

Change is a choice

You are the only person who can change yourself. Somebody else cannot change you.

Most people need to look at the way that they look at change. How many times have you heard somebody say, ‘I sure hope that things will change.’? The only way things will change for you is when you switch. It has absolutely nothing to do with hope.

You may have heard these words said before, ‘I don’t know why I’m this way.’ Well, you are the way you are because that is the way you have chosen to be.

Positive change is possibly the most sought-after goal in life. What changes would improve your experience today?

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
