What Are You Waiting For?

What are you waiting for? Do you want to make changes in your life? Do you constantly tell yourself that if things were different, you could do this and that? Nothing is going change, unless you initiate the change. Blaming others and blaming circumstances would not make your situation better. According to a positive thinker Remez Sasson that  Daydreaming about a different life style, about a vacation, about a new car, or about a new house is not enough. Wishing you were wealthy, healthy or in love, and at the same time, at the back of your mind, not believing you will ever achieve any of these things, would only make the situation worse.

What you feel and believe deep inside you is more powerful than all your resolutions, wishes and daydreaming. You should work on convincing yourself that these things are possible. When you are convinced you act differently.

If you want to make changes in your life, they have to start right now, not in some undefined future. You are cheating and frustrating yourself when you procrastinate, when you make empty resolutions, and when you believe that if circumstances were different you would have been able to do this and that. Now, this very moment is the time to start any change, the smallest one or the biggest one. If you say, "I'll start tomorrow", you are cheating yourself, because tomorrow you will again say the same thing. There will always be another tomorrow, but no change in your life.
