Lighting A Fire

It's no mystery that changing or improving an area of your life can be difficult. And oddly enough, it's usually not the change itself that's hard. Rather, it's igniting or lighting a fire within yourself to get things moving in the right direction.

Here are a few things to remember when pursuing personal change and growth:

1. It doesn’t matter if you have a genius IQ or a PhD in Quantum Physics, you can’t change anything in your life without taking some kind of action. There’s a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. It’s as simple as that.

2. You can't be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes teach you important lessons. Every time you make one, you’re one step closer to your goal. In fact the only mistake that can actually truly hurt you is choosing to do nothing simply because you’re too scared to make a mistake.

So don’t hesitate or don’t doubt yourself. In life, it’s rarely about getting a chance and it’s about taking a chance. You’ll never be 100% sure that something will work, but you can always be 100% sure that doing nothing won’t work.

Most of the time you just have to go for it and no matter how it turns out, it always ends up just the way it should be. Either you succeed or you learn something. Win-Win. Remember, if you never act, you will never know for sure, and you will be left standing in the same spot forever.

3. The number one thing that holds people back is their own reluctance to accept an opportunity simply because they don’t think they’re ready. In other words, they believe they require additional knowledge, skill, experience, etc. before they can aptly partake in the opportunity. Sadly, this is the kind of thinking that stifles personal growth.

The truth is nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. This is because most great opportunities in life force us to grow emotionally and intellectually. They force us to stretch ourselves and venture outside our comfort zones, which brings us full circle because when we don’t feel 100% comfortable, we don’t feel ready.

Just remember that significant moments of opportunity for personal growth and development will come and go throughout your lifetime. If you are looking to make positive changes in your life you will need to embrace these moments of opportunity even though you will never feel 100% ready for them. If you don't, you might end up missing out on something.
