Decision to change requires a Made Up Mind

Most people desire to see their life transformed and changed.However it takes more than just a need to want to change your life.

You need to make up your mind, you either make it happen or keep at it until it happens, but never give up. When you decide to change, break all bridges and create a laser focus to what you want in life. Many people set goals that are forgotten after a few days or weeks of creating them.

The reason being goals without a made up mind are just wishlists. A made up mind is a fuel that gets things done. A made up mind is a disciplined and focused one. It perseveres when you move from your comfort zone, from the life you are used to and to the life you desire to create; that you have never lived before. It might make someone feel like an impostor.

This is because it requires you to do things you have never done before and become a person you have never become before.

Decision to change requires an Action

I remember when I graduated from high school in Tanzania and I applied for University and I was never selected, lying down on my bed not knowing what to do. I remember making a decision, I am not accepting the refusal admission letter as final. I decided to go and meet with the University Professor, head of academics.

Upon entering his office and sharing with him what brought me there, he demanded for me to leave his office before he called for security to take me and I requested him to tell me whether I had an opportunity or not and I will be out of his office in 30 seconds. We argued back and forth and later he said my friend have a sit.

“Tell me how I can help you” To cut the long story short, I was admitted and became a student at that particular University. Decision determines what life will bring into you. This does not mean things will be easy, however they will be worth it in the end. But also remember not making a decision is a decision made as well.Action taking differentiate between those who have and those who have not.

Decision to change requires Trusting The Process

If you want to live a life you have never lived, you have to do things you have never done before. This process demands taking bold action to do things others are not willing to do. The University Professor told me, I taught here for over 30 years. I have never seen a courageous young man like you and I want to help you get an admission. The process can be tough and lonely and sometimes painful however when we keep at it and persevere, we will achieve what we desire.

Decision to change requires a new you

Every new level in life requires new you, that means new skills, new relationships, new thinking and so forth. The thinking that got you here might not necessarily get you to the next level you desire. As you continue on the journey to change you will experience pain as you become a new you. That is why you require finding someone such as a coach or mentor who has walked the path of change you desire, who can speak to you through the journey.

Decision to change requires ability to let go

As you are becoming a new you, do not try to control things you cannot control. You cannot control how many people will buy your products or services but you can control the number of people you talk to. You cannot control how people treat you but you can control how you feel after the treatment.
