Are you ready to push your limits? Are you ready to grow and change? Over the past few weeks we discussed important questions to ask (PART ONE), discussed relationships that might be holding us back (PART TWO), and last week we talked about making even small changes and the impact they have our our lives (PART THREE).
Another aspect of change is that it will push you to your limits and beyond. Think you are doing all that you can right now, and your best is being offered? Well, in order to make a real change for the best – notice I didn’t say better – you will have to work ten times smarter, ten times harder than you do at this moment.
Yes, it takes work, but it’s like running a marathon or winning a chess tournament. There is a time, for however brief when the mind and the body must push through a wall, a place where it is so easy to quit. Once you get past that point, once you make the choice to go through, the other side, and the results will be within your reach.
In my favorite book it says, “Whatever you find to do, do it with all your might, all your strength, and all your power.” It is this ideal that you need to carry forth with you while you are changing to get better results. The true best a person can give is not some amount, but rather a conscious effort to become something better than what they were before.
Think of Dan Marino of the Miami Dolphins or Rich Gannon, most notably of the Oakland Raiders. When the time for change had come, both of these quarterbacks went full force into their new careers as broadcasters and analysts.
Today, many of the younger football fans at first don’t recognize them as greats of the game. They are seen as successes in the broadcast world because they made the choice to become successful.
In the end, it really is a simple choice. A future where you are plagued by self-doubt and a lack of confidence, or one where you are confident, full of vibrant life. By making the conscious choice to change what needs to be changed, and live the way you need to live, the future can be brighter than you ever imagined.
What changes do you need to make? What weeds do you need to pull?
