It All Starts With You

Posted Jan 17, 2016 by Mathieu Chiasson

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years is that no one will come to rescue me. If you want things to change and get a better life you have to change.

And it all starts with a simple choice. A choice to change, to improve and move forward.

Promise and warning of change

You don’t need to know much about change. There is one promise and one warning about it.

The promise is that…

If you will change, everything will change for you.

And the warning is that…

If you don’t change, nothing will change for you.

Two very simple concepts which can be hard to put in action in real life.

Become a believer of you

Here’s a simple philosophy shift you can do that will help you reach a better life.

Figure out WHO you need to become in order to get what you want.

Success is not something you achieve, success is something you attract by the person you become. So you need to take the time to find out what kind of person would attract the things you want in life.

Start paying attention to the people you perceive as successful. Look at their habits. What are they doing differently?

  • What do they read?
  • What do they eat?
  • How do they spend their free time?
  • Who do they spend time with?

Find out the answers to these questions If you can’t see the traits you want to embody in someone around you then use your imagination to visualize the answers.

  • How would a wealthy person spend his evening?
  • Would a fit person take the stairs or elevator?

See yourself in that new and better you. Imagine yourself doing all those great new habits.

Don’t be discouraged if it takes time. Changing is a long process but if you take on each day with a mindset to change who you are. Then positive changes will start to appear in your life.

It’s a long process. It takes time to change and become better but once you’re a better person, you've changed for good.
