Both Feet In
It’s one thing to do something half way, or a little bit, but it’s another thing to do something the whole way with both feet in. People often times don’t realize how much potential there is when a real commitment is made. A real commitment requires sacrifice, possibly a huge sacrifice depending on how great a change you are looking to make.
Sometimes when people start thinking about completely changing their lifestyle, it becomes even harder than they anticipated. Strange forces start working against them. These forces don’t want them to completely let go of their old lifestyle, in which something always comes up, or a new enticing opportunity presents itself, where the individual is lured and drawn back in.
So the question is, how do we put both feet in to a new lifestyle? How do we really change? The first thing that we need to do is to have a goal, or a vision in mind of the kind of person that we want to become. When we envision ourselves becoming a certain way, we make better decisions, decisions that will help us become the person we envision. Second, we have to take the necessary steps forward to obtain our goals or vision. We have to make good decisions, and learn to stay away from the things that will cause us to make bad decisions. Third, we have to stay on it. We have to work at this change with a relentless pursuit. If we make a mistake, we get back on it. If we make another mistake, we get back on it – we don’t quit. People tend to quit too soon when they make a mistake or have a slip up. Don’t quit, it wouldn’t be worth the lifestyle change if it were an easy process.
