    No Room For Maybe

    Have you been thinking that maybe it’s time for a change?

    Have you thought to yourself, maybe I should go back to school or maybe it’s time to finally work on that book idea?

    Well, change is good.  I am just not too sure that you will be experiencing change any time soon and here’s why.

    Before you can experience real change in your life, you must feel a sense of conviction.  One of my favorite quotes concerning change is…

     people don’t change because of what they know, they change because of how they feel.

    … I am not sure who said it, but it’s true.

    When you truly feel convinced that it is time for change, there is no room for maybe.  The word maybe means neither yes nor no.  Every time you place the word maybe in front of an opportunity for real change, you are actually placing a question mark by it and suspending it.  Instead of moving closer to your goals you are postponing them---hanging them in the balance.

    If you want to experience real change by finally saying yes to your dreams and fulfilling your goals, here is your approach:

    Say yes! Instead of saying neither yes nor no to changing your life, say certainly.  Certainly means yes. Convince yourself that it is time to change your life by saying yes--- first!  That change in your vocabulary will spark a change in your thinking.

    Feel it.  The reason you want to make a change in the first place is because you are no longer content with the way things are now.  Discontent doesn’t feel good, does it? I want you to feel that discontent one last time, and then imagine just how good change is going to feel.

    Do it now.  Leave no room for maybe. Don’t postpone it.  Don’t question it.  This change is probably a long time coming anyway.  You have talked about it.  You have thought about it. You have even imagined what it would feel like.  Now it’s time to do it.

    Maybe has taken up enough space in your life. It’s time to finally say yes to your dreams and experience some real change in your life.  Leave no room for maybe.

    Yes, it's time to get serious about setting new financial, career, and weight loss goals.
