Today’s post is a continuation of yesterday’s post – The Love in Evolve. I want to offer an answer to the question: How does one get over the hurdle of fearing change and onto evolving?
Well your evolution depends on you. You have to consciously accept the responsibility for your personal growth and development. You have to decide that enough is enough and step out and make the change. In a Les Brown video, he talked about a dog on the porch, crying because it was sitting on a nail. The obvious solution to the problem would be for the dog to get off the nail. When Les asked the dog’s owner, “Why doesn’t the dog get up?” the owner simply replied that the nail wasn’t hurting the dog enough.
Are you hurting enough? Or you do constantly complain about something that you can change while doing nothing about it? If you’re that dog on the porch, I want you to love yourself. Get to know everything about yourself; your good qualities so that you can strengthen them and your bad so that you can change them. The next step includes building your character, improving your attitude, gaining the proper information, surrounding yourself with quality people and ensuring that you create a positive outlook on life and evolve to be to person you want to be.
To some this may seem like a daunting task and I have to admit that it is not something that you can do in a day, a month or a year. It’s a forever endeavor but YOU ARE WORTH IT!
