What are you willing to give up?

What are you willing to give up?



Change.

What a powerful yet elusive concept.

The idea that things could be better keeps us going during the darkest of hours. The thought that things could be different. Our current problems could disappear. The thought that our dreams can be realized. The thought that everything will be, and is, okay.

Change.

What a powerful yet elusive concept.

If we overcome our challenges, change will provide a vehicle to achieve our dreams. Change will let us spend more time doing what we WANT to, rather than spend time on what we HAVE to. Change will yield us being the best us we can be. Our president was elected on the concept of change.

Change.

What a powerful yet elusive concept.

A lot of people TALK about change. Everyday will be a victory. Every week will be better than the last. Every year will be their year from here on out.

I genuinely hope they're right. I wish the best for everybody because "A rising tide raises all ships." Unfortunately, most won't experience the change they speak of. Most won't inconvenience themselves. Most won't stick with their changes long enough to benefit. Most won't speak what they want, they'll continue speaking what they have.

That won't be you though. You're reading this for a reason.

While you're here, I have one question to ask you. What are you willing to give up?

Yes, I said give up. In order to get the change you REALLY want, you're going to have to give up something. You may have to give up your TV time. You may have to give up a couple of your weekly outings with your friends. You may have to miss the big sporting event coming up. You just might have to give up something you hold dearly to get the change that you want. Nothing is free, including change. If you aren't willing to give up something, you don't want change. So again, I ask you...

What are you willing to give up?

Change.

What a powerful concept.
