“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.”
~ Jim Rohn
Do you feel stuck in a rut and nothing ever changes? We keep telling ourselves we want it to be different but are we willing to do what it takes? You can find numerous quotes from the late Jim Rohn, an author and motivational speaker, that really hit home. For example, “If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.” Another one is “Everyone must choose one of two pains: The pain of discipline or the pain of regret.” And finally, “Life doesn’t get better by chance; it gets better by change.” What is your inner dialogue? Listen to what you are saying to yourself. Everything we have thought is what has created the life we are currently living.
So how can you change? What if we made a paradigm shift? According to the Merriam-Webster.com Dictionary,
the definition of a paradigm shift is: “an important change that happens when the usual way of thinking about or doing something is replaced by a new and different way”. As Jim Rohn said, “Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more wisdom.” (Juma)
Why not take the time to learn what you can do? You deserve it! Sometimes we are so busy making sure everyone’s needs are met that we don’t think of ourselves. It is okay to be a bit selfish and do what we need to do for us. We can always read self-development books, work on our inner programming and spend some time meditating. However, if we are in a rut, we can’t see how to get out of it and we need to change our way of thinking!
A great tool is working with a professional who can help you find your way. At Wholeness Healing Center we want people to reach their fullest and greatest potential. You can start where you are and begin to make a change! Give Wholeness Healing Center a call to set an appointment to begin looking at your own needs, desires and solutions for
your life. If your employer has contracted with Wholeness Healing Center for their Employee Assistance Program, just let us know what company you are with. Your call is completely confidential. “You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.” Jim Rohn (Juma)
