So if you yourself are in a low key kind of mood this one will appeal to you – if not, don’t hesitate to check out the archives of the site. 😉 Let’s get started…
Musings Episode 61: Transitions…
Transitions can range from a variety of scenarios. It could be a situation, a state, even a frame of mind. The funny thing about transitions is, no matter what reason, how you think about them, react to them, and move with them, can greatly affect how they have an impact on your life.
I have to be honest and say lately I’ve been going through a transitional period myself. How I’ve been dealing with it has been in a sort of grey area. Not bad – but not great either.
Sometimes it can be a real struggle.
This is where I say improving your lifestyle all boils down to YOU – no matter what training is provided. The tools are like that of a mechanic’s – just because they’re in the garage, doesn’t mean they’re gonna fix/tune the car themselves.
I remember about a month or so back someone unsubscribed from the mailing list over at Rego’s Life Official Site. In the box where they could put why they were unsubscribing, they said this: “Did not improve life.”
I smiled reading the unscubscribe letter. “That’s cute,” I thought. Not to be sarcastic – but to be honest, it was cute.
As I’ve said time and time again, to every single subscriber and reader on here, while I may provide you with the tools, there’s no “magic potion” that’ll get you living life like a millionaire a week from now.
The “magic potion” is within yourself.
Within your own mind.
Your own thoughts.
Your own ambitions.
Your own heart.
Yes, it’s a process.
Did anyone say it was going to be easy?
Not all the time.
Will it be worth it?
That’s being irresponsible.
You can’t stick your head in the sand and say, “woe is me” – you just can’t.
If you’re reading this right now, you’re obviously a human being.
You’re the most intelligent being on the face of this earth.
Albeit not every time you act like it (in fact, many act the opposite).
You’ve gotta take that power and harness it.
Don’t wait for transitions to happen to you.
Don’t let negative transitions happen.
Create and direct your own transitions, control your own future, and fess up to the fact when you know you’re being lazy.
I know sometimes the fight can be tiring.
I know sometimes LIFE, can be tiring…but the way you look at it, can all depend on just HOW tiring you let it seem.
You’ve fought the good fight, and you can fight a few more.
A hundred more.
A thousand more.
And when you get tired of fighting – is when you realize there’s really no need to fight – but instead, simply PLAN.
Plan, improvise, and plan some more. (Wanna know how? Check out this week’s Make it Mondays: Create a Plan of Action – Don’t Let Your Story Write Itself)
You’ll eventually realize that transitions don’t happen to you, but in fact you can create transitions.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Sun Tzu…
Improve Your Lifestyle. Improve Yourself. This is Life. This is Rego’s Life.™
