We are all creatures of habit, good or bad, and they set the daily path in which we walk. A habit is something we take part in more than once in like manner. We feel satisfied with the routine and thus its molded into our subconscious. The problem comes for those of us that have never tasted great success, nor have had the privilege of an outside influence. Perhaps, from someone in a position we desire to rise to ourselves.
Throughout our lives we develop daily routines that fit our comfort level. Depending on our surroundings, we then begin to adapt and conform to a social group that fits closes with our views on life. Their perspective is considered. Then reason, by way of which causes the strongest emotional response in us, bends both perspectives together forming a new world view. This new view is then etched into our subconscious as a sense of belonging travels through our nervous system, bringing pleasure and satisfaction to our body. This feeling is interpreted as being right.
It is at this point, the direction of our lives is set and the wet concrete containing our life's blueprint dries into permanency ... most will never deviate from this course. This must be understood before one can come to the conclusion that interchange is a must for success to occur. This realization can stimulate the mind to desire change, causing us to open ourselves to the task.
Habits of the successful are formulated through constant effort, just as our habits are formed. The successful perform actions that lead to success, while our habits are lead by personal comfort (a life without struggle). The successful are constantly learning and doing in order to sustain success. We talk about success amongst our peers as though its within our grasp, but continue to do only enough to barely survive. I've often heard many state their lack of interest for reading or learning. They just do their job and that's enough, but in the same conversation say "but who knows, maybe one day my life will change and I'll become successful." How could it change if you're unwilling to perform the proper actions that create change? How can opportunities open themselves to someone who has decidedly kept their mind closed?
Yes, it is necessary to change who you are as a person. That includes your views on social preference, religion, politics, society as a whole, and your very personal world views. You must stop doing what makes you comfortable and jump into the unknown where your future is undetermined. Sure its scary to live a life where you are constantly uncertain of what will come next. Sure its unsettling to be unaware of the consequences of your next step and how it'll alter your life... but what lies on the other side of that fear is your success.
I'm not comforted by knowing the ending of my story. It doesn't bring me peace to think of a stable and secure life... leaving in the shadows the dreams I once knew. My comfort lies in knowing I'm living on purpose. My peace comes from knowing I have the ability to conquer the obstacles that stand before me like the high walls of a king. I have changed continually throughout my journey and no doubt will continue to change based off new found and sound knowledge. I'm not afraid of change... I welcome it. Every turn, left or right, has provided the opportunity for me to prove myself worthy and has deepened my desire and determination to succeed.
What you do with your life is completely in your hands. Although, I urge you to seek change, I've simply shared what I've learned in life as it has shared its knowledge with me.
