It is so easy to continue down the road you are currently on. Continue with life as it is, even if it’s not satisfying anymore or has even become toxic. A new path has to be created and sometimes you hack away at the weeds of old thought patterns. Change, even good change, is so very hard.
Every person who has accomplished something amazing did so by deciding to choose a different path, stop living as they had been, take a huge risk, walk off into the unknown on new road and let the old way be gone forever.
Sometimes these choices come in agonizing moments of upset when you find your life has become so low and you’ve dug a hole for yourself so deep that your only choice is to stop digging. Sometimes they come as moments of great inspiration when you decide that the vision you have in your head is so important that you simply have to share it with as many people as possible.
Other times it comes as a solution to a troublesome problem, as in — what if we could use small wooden blocks to press words into paper so books could be made more easily, wouldn’t that be a great idea!
Some time ago in a moment of intense despair I decided I could no longer be someone who weighed 220 pounds; my life as a fat person was done. I committed to change no matter what it took and on that day I became truly free. It took my body a year to catch up but that’s part of the journey too.
Without true commitment, courage (lots and lots of courage — trust me on this one) and a willingness to continue no matter what, it is very hard to succeed at any goal long-term. But with it — even the impossible is possible.
Are you on the right path?
