When you can’t see what’s ahead of you, it’s easier to hold on to what you already have. Even if your current situation is painful, you know what to expect from it. But change will come, whether you initiate it or not.
In the beginning you’ll be resistant when you try doing something new. That’s why change must first start with the way we think about ourselves. Then we can reinforce our new thoughts with action. At first it will be difficult, uncomfortable even. If we don’t see immediate results from the changes, it’ll be easy to believe that we’re wasting our time.
However, if we’re currently dissatisfied with some aspect of our lives, we’re already in the process of change. Awareness means that some part of us has changed, and we’re no longer comfortable with the status quo.
There’s no change without surrender. Surrender the need to be in control. Surrender the illusion of security. Surrender and move through the fear that keeps you stagnating in a life you’ve outgrown.
