Why Are You Resisting Change In Your Life?

“One reason people resist change is because they focus on what they have to give up, instead of what they have to gain.” -Believe Fitness NY Keep this in mind whenever you find yourself in a position to resist change. If you are only focusing on what you have to give up, you will hold on tighter to the things that keep you in your comfort zone. When you decide to look at what you have to gain, you will take the necessary steps and some risks in order for the change to take you to where you are supposed to be in life. I have seen where people will refuse change because of personal beliefs and what other people have shared with them over time. If there is such a comfort zone with a person, they will not want to leave what they are familiar with. The problem is that if you never leave your comfort zone, you cannot

Do You Have To Work Hard To Achieve Success?

“Success does not come easy later in life unless you put in hard work first.” -Michael J. Fite Keep this in mind whenever you look at trying to achieve something in your life. If you are not willing to put in the work necessary to achieve what you want, you will find yourself still in the same spot in your life. You will also envy and hate those who are successful and did the hard work. When you do put in the hard work in the beginning, you will find that as you make progress, things become easier and you will eventually accomplish what you want in life. Hard work is naturally meant to separate the successful from the mediocre. The successful do the hard work and conquer challenges while the mediocre run from hard work and fall back into a comfort zone. I am seeing this when it comes to my military career. I remember sitting in recruit training

Are You Normal Or Unique?

“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” -Maya Angelou Keep this in mind whenever you find yourself deciding whether it is okay to be normal or unique. It is okay to be normal, but you will find yourself just like everyone else and not really trying anything that will make you stand out or become better in life. This can lead to people not taking notice of and recognizing you from the crowd. When you decide to step out and be unique, you get to try out and explore different things that will help you to grow and take on your own identity. This can lead to you gaining confidence in yourself and getting noticed by people. Why do people want to be normal when they can be unique? The easy answer is this: it is easier to a person to follow the crowd than to stand apart from it.

Are You A Big Dreamer Or Small Dreamer?

“It’s best to dream big and have big goals so that you can have an unlimited ceiling in your life than to dream small and have small goals to where reach a limited ceiling in your life.” -Michael J. Fite Keep this in mind when you find yourself trying to determine the size of your goals and dreams. To have a big dream or goal may be scary at first because you do not know how exactly you are going to get there, but it allows for you to have something to grow into, learn from, and help create new possibilities. When you choose to have a small dream or goal, you can only go so far and it can limit you from seeing your true potential in life. I have learned in my existence that people who dream big seem to be crazy to those who dream small. I have always been puzzled by that but the answer as to

Will You Spend Today Complaining Or Doing Something About It?

“Spending today complaining about yesterday won’t make tomorrow any better.” -Unknown Keep this in mind if you are spending any part of today complaining about what happened yesterday. When you do so, you are wasting valuable time out of today focusing on something that you cannot go back and change instead of using today to create new chances and opportunities to build a better tomorrow. I am a believer that tomorrow cannot happen in anyone’s life worrying about yesterday. I find this to be true because it is hard to go forward and conquer anything when a person is mentally stuck in reverse. I am reminded of when I was living at home with my mother at 20. I did not like the fact that I could not have a room to myself because I felt I was too grown to be sleeping on a couch or in the same room as my brother. I would spend a lot of

What Is The Impact Of The Choices You Make?

“Your life is a result of the choices you make…If you don’t like your life, it is time to start making better choices.” -Unknown Keep this in mind when you reflect on where you are in life and the impact of your choices. If you make bad choices throughout your life, it will leave you in a predicament where you are not happy with what is around you, and it can bring forth a bad attitude. You may try to blame others and never take responsibility, but you are ultimately responsible for the choices you make and the life that you live as a result of them. I am a believer that a person will not make better choices in life until they have reached their personal “rock bottom” in life. I believe this because once a person hits a point where they have nowhere to go, that is when true change can happen. For me, that “rock-bottom” had me
