Mediocrity has become the lifestyle for most people in the world today. Choices made during their younger years as well as the choices they make today are responsible for their circumstances today. How they handle their circumstances will decide where they will be tomorrow. You can alter your circumstances of life or Development From Within–Making The Choice To Do Nothing.
Very often when we talk to people on the downward slope to failure we find there is an element of blame to their present circumstances. It is always someone else’s fault, their environment or the economy that has brought about their demise. There is a reason outside of themselves that is to blame and that is the way they go through life. The circumstances in their life never change and time after time they find themselves on the downward slope to many small failures that lead to major failure in their life that they view as “not my fault.”
For the people described above their lives and circumstances remain the same and never change because they choose to never change from within. You see, how we deal with life’s circumstances and failures will determine if they are going to continue or turn around to become successes. If we have the habit to blame or just ignore we will find we are trapped within and ever spiralling downward. There needs to be a change and that change must come from within ourselves. Not always can we change the environment around us but we can change ourselves to deal with it differently. Stop blaming what is around us for our temporary failures and look to oneself to see where the blame really lies.
Change is not always easy and to change for the better will often require sacrifices. It may mean that we sacrifice some of the relationship we have with certain friends because they have a negative attitude that is ever present. Nothing can hold you back more than negativity which even if you decide to remain positive but remain with those that have a negative outlook on life and business. Negativity always has a way of creeping back into our lives when exposed to it. You will need to decide that negativity not going to be apart of your life so sacrifices will need to be made.
You will need to choose those relationships that promote happiness, encouragement and support for the endeavour you have embarked upon. Choose those of like mindedness that line up with what you are trying to accomplish. Use these new relationships to brainstorm ideas, look for workarounds when confronted with temporary failure and more importantly as true friendship which promote loyalty and honesty among each other with the other persons best interest at heart.
If you want to change your circumstances you need to begin from within yourself. Development from within requires honesty and deep down searching to decide where you need to change so you can move forward in life and business. You cannot expect a different ending to a movie if you are watching the same one over and over. The choice is yours and yours alone. Nothing will change for you and you path will remain the same, Development From Within–Making The Choice To Do Nothing.
