Makes sense doesn’t it? Nothing changes if nothing changes. Most people want their lives to be different but they do absolutely nothing to make that happen. Now that makes absolutely no sense but some people embrace that sort of thinking. But nothing will change if you don’t change something.
If you want your life to be different, then you have to do something to bring about that change. You can’t be doing the same thing expecting different results. So if you want something to change for you, then you have to make an effort regarding your situation.
For example, if you are job hunting, then you have to make an effort to find that job you are after. You have to send out resumes, attend interviews and all that drama. You can’t sit at home hoping that someone will call you out of the blue for a job. Now sometimes that might happen. But it just may not happen that way for you.
Old ways don’t open new doors.
It’s the same with relationships as well. If you want something to change in your relationship then you have to make an effort to change things.
Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes
Life is about growing and the challenges you face in life will help you do that. People often want to live their life without facing challenges; they want an easy cushy life. But if you think about it for a minute, life without any sort of challenge would be boring. Challenges help us to grow.
In addition to which, challenges reveal your character, strength and they can often provide new experiences and opportunities.
For example, some women who had to deal with the financial strain of a divorce, started their own business. Now they can share their experience and inspire others. Instead of wallowing in self-pity they did something about their situation. Clearly, nothing changes if nothing changes.
Old ways don’t open new doors
Losing a job is a challenge for most people. But it’s not the end of the world. There is always something that you can do. Good things can actually come from losing a job, especially if it was a stressful one. For one thing, that job stress is gone and you now have an opportunity to do something different.
Now if you tell yourself you’ll never find another job, then you’ll be stressing yourself out. Admittedly, it’s often difficult to see the possibilities when all you are focused on is the job you just lost. This is especially so when you don’t have a clue about your possible options.
But what you need to remember is that you have skills and you can use those skills to create an income for yourself. That means you can change things for yourself. You can just sit at home wishing for the things to be different in your life. Check out the short video below and you’ll see what we mean.
Fear of Failure
Sometimes we resist doing something different because we think that we might fail at it. While that’s understandable, it’s not realistic. Sometimes we can be so pessimistic in our outlook that we overlook people and opportunities that can make a difference in our lives. We’re so consumed with the prospect of failing that we don’t even stop to think about what if it does work out.
Even if you failed at something new, it’s not the end of the world. Failure teaches us what not to do and we would not have learned those lessons from being successful. Think about people like Michael Jordan, Thomas Edison, and all the other people who failed before they succeeded and failed even while they were succeeding. They tried and continued trying, despite their failures… Nothing changes if nothing changes.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” Thomas A. Edison
They could have wallowed in self-pity and given up on their endeavors. But if they did, they would not have been an inspiration for so many people around the world. Clearly they knew better and despite their failures, they still made the effort to accomplish their goal.
Waiting until the conditions are right
Some people make a decision to wait until the conditions are right before they decide to do something about their situation. But what does that really mean? What are the conditions that need to be right, before you engage in making a change in your life? What’s your idea of the right timing?
In a case like quitting your job, it’s certainly understandable that you may not be able to simply walk away, because of your financial commitments. But for most people waiting until the conditions are right, is really about the fear of stepping outside of their comfort zone.
For example, lots of people look for online opportunities to make money from home. Even when they find one and they can see the possibilities, they choose not to do anything with it because as far as they are concerned, the “timing” isn’t right. They come up with all sorts of excuses why they can’t make use of the opportunity now.
Take a chance on you!
But if they were being honest with themselves they’ll realize that maybe it’s fear or they just aren’t ready to make a change. Truth be told, we often make time for the things that are important to us. Think about it.
You only fail when you give up trying.
So what if you tried something and failed at it? Failure is not the end of the world. You only fail when you give up trying. Understandably change can be difficult but you are not going to get a different outcome if you keep doing the same thing that’s not working, over and over. That goes for anything.
So what is it about your life that you want to change? Quitting your job? Starting an online business? Maybe you want to learn how to create a passive income source. Or maybe it’s relationship issues. Hey whatever it is, nothing will change if nothing changes.
Take a chance on yourself. If other people can achieve success, so can you. But it has to start with you changing your mindset. If you need a boost or some motivation to do that, then check out the selected resources below. But remember if you want things to be different, it’s on YOU to make that change.
Create your own reality
Here’s a question for you. “The technology that we are exposed to today, what are you using it to do?” Check out what other people are doing online? Maybe you are reading about being motivation but that’s all you are doing, reading about it, as opposed to applying the knowledge.
How is that helping you change your situation? Yep, it’s not. Think about what you really want out of life. Make a list and start brainstorming about how you can achieve your goals.
For example, maybe you want financial or geographic freedom or maybe a new job. Well, what are you prepared to do about achieving those goals?
There are so many opportunities online, that no one should really be without a job or some sort of income. But sadly, that’s not the case. Some people allow traditional mindsets and comfort zones to rob them of seeing and embracing new opportunities. I hope that’s not you. For example, if you are job hunting, there are job posting sites you can use to find a job near you.
I wanted a career change so I did something about it. I got into affiliate marketing. So now I make money 24/7 with my websites. If you are in the same situation, what are you doing about it? Hoping and wishing? You have to be proactive! Nothing changes if nothing changes.
Hey, we hope that this little article of ours has in some way spurred you on to take a step in the right direction. Make that list of things you want to achieve and start acting on it. Don’t allow fear to hold you back from achieving great things!
