Where do we get the motivation to change? Is it from too much suffering in one area that motivates us the most?, or do we just instinctively take action because of duty or moral obligations? If it were my stance only, I would say when pain becomes too great to sweep under the figurative “rug” that we take action. We get sick of the sickness and new live takes form to move forward on the next leg of our journey. The idea of being proactive with life’s battles seems to really only apply to “those other people”, and we continue on our path to mediocrity unconsciously.
I’m a believer that with the appropriate habitual action and thorough self education, one can set forth a whole new path that we never considered would exist prior. When the person seeks for hard and long enough in a certain direction, answers surely come. Some times through people, some times through various experiences that we capture in awe. Jim Rohn gives a story that many of us can relate to, that place of wanting to do and be the right person but things just wouldn’t click, stuck in ignorance. But, he found his way out to a brighter playing field, and we would not consider him any more different than most of us, except the fact that he took direction and worked diligently towards a path he could only visualize internally.
What are some barriers you have worked through on the way to person goals?
