Unfortunately, change requires you to give up one thing for something else. To achieve something new, you must be willing to give up something you currently possess. You may have to give time, money, or something else. Not wanting to change is the reason I believe most people do not go after or achieve their dreams. They want something new but are not willing to change. They want new results using old methods.
They may want to start a business but are not willing to spend the time or money needed to make it a success. They may want a soulmate but will not work on themselves to attract the person. Thy may want to lose weight but do not want to exercise or give up their current eating habits. They have not accepted the concept; that change requires them to change. That to get something new, they must be willing to give up something old.
The something old may be, the way they think, their attitude, their current habits, money they spend elsewhere, leisure time, just to name a few.
The simple truth is, no matter what it is, to achieve your goals, you must change. If you keep doing what you are currently doing, you will get the same results. Change requires changing something.
The change does not have to be drastic or unpleasant. What you change or give up, however, must be appropriate for the goal you want to achieve. As we begin a new year, what are you willing to give up this year to achieve your goals?
