Happy people don’t just accept change, they embrace it
The only time most of us ever learn about unlocking our self-improvement power is when the whole world is crashing and falling apart. We think and feel this way because it is not easy to change. But change becomes more painful when we ignore it.
Change will happen, like it or hate it. At one point or another, we are all going to experience different turning points in our life – and we are all going to eventually unlock our self-improvement power not because the world says so, not because our friends are nagging us, but because we realized its for our own good.
Happy people don’t just accept change, they embrace it. Now, you don’t have to feel a tremendous heat before realizing the need for self-improvement. Unlocking your self-improvement power means unlocking yourself up in the cage of thought that “its just the way I am”. It is such a poor excuse for people who fear and resist change. Most of us program our minds like computers.
Jerry repeatedly tells everyone that he doesn’t have the guts to be around groups of people. He heard his mom, his dad, his sister, his teacher tell the same things about him to other people. Over the years, that is what Jerry believes. He believes its his story. And what happens? Every time a great crowd would troop over their house, in school, and in the community – he tends to step back, shy away and lock herself up in a room. Jerry didn’t only believed in his story, he lived it.
Jerry has to realize that he is not what he is in his story. Instead of having his story post around his face for everyone to remember, he has to have the spirit and show people “I am an important person and I should be treated accordingly!”
Self-improvement may not be everybody’s favorite word, but if we look at things in a different point of view, we might have greater chances of enjoying the whole process instead of counting the days until we are fully improved. Three sessions in a week at the gym would result to a healthier life, reading books instead of looking at porns will shape up a more profound knowledge, going out with friends and peers will help you take a step back from work and unwind. And just when you are enjoying the whole process of unlocking your self-improvement power, you’ll realize that you’re beginning to take things light and become happy.
