Change is a process, not an event.
We've all done it. You watch webinars, join programs, sign up for courses, attend talks by inspirational speakers, read books by well-known authors etc etc, and you come away feeling like you’re now armed with powerful information that’s going to change your life. You are buzzing with excitement. This is it! This is the turning point you've been waiting for. Your life is going to be different from now on. Get ready world because here I come!
Then a week, a month, six months later, you sit there feeling deflated, disappointed and disillusioned because your life is still pretty much the same as before. Nothing much has changed.
What happened to that buzz, that excitement, that life-changing turning point?
Most of us want to be, do and have more in life. It’s part of who we are. The drive to be better versions of ourselves. To realise our full potential.
But the big question is: Are you willing to do what it takes in order to become the person you want to be?
You can watch as many webinars and read as many books as you want, but it isn't going to change your life if you’re not willing to look inward and do the work. Why? Because change is a process, not an event.
Change does not happen at a specific point in time, like “when I finish reading that book” or “when I sign up for that course” or “When I've taken that magic pill”. Change is the result of a process. Change happens when you are willing to do the work needed to become the person capable of accomplishing whatever it is you want to accomplish.
At the end of the day, it’s all about how committed you are to change. How badly do you want it? How willing are you to begin the process of change and take control of your life?
