How much does it take to change?
They say, people don’t change
Or that it’s hard to change…
But I disagree.
It doesn’t take alot to change.
Change can happen from the smallest things.
Maybe something someone said that clicked with you.
Or a book.
I know many peoples lives had changed simply from reading a book.
And they have completely changed there lives around.
It doesn’t take a lot to change.
It just requires doing something different
When it’s not on your doorstep
What do you do?
Do you wait until another event rolls around closer to you or do you travel the distance.
I’ve been to several events 100s of miles away from where I live, long train or coach journeys, hotels etc.
At the same time in Facebook groups I see people asking will this event be in X place or y place…
Because they don’t want to travel.
Yet even if it was on there doorstep, would they go?
I don’t know… but the question is if its really worth something to you
How far are you willing to go?
You can’t know if your going to enjoy an experience until you experience it.
You can’t know
And we talk ourselves out of doing things we think we won’t enjoy, yet we dont truly know we wouldn’t until we tried
Some of my best experiences were doing things I didn’t want to do
Some of my best achievements I almost talked myself out of doing
Why because of some little voice in our heads?
Just try something new
You might love it, you might not
“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”
The little prince
It’s not the mansion that’s beautiful, It’s the hard work you put in to acquire it that makes it so,
It’s not the abs you want, its the feeling of achievement you get once you have them
It’s not the relationship, just two people together, Its all the hardships you’ve been and overcome together that make it
It’s not the things we own, or our jobs we do its all the things we cannot see but have the biggest impact,
Happiness isn’t the holiday, or the cash in the bank, or the dream partner,
It is and always will be the work and the effort we put in.
“People where you live, the little prince said, grow five thousand roses in one garden… Yet they don’t find what they’re looking for… And yet what they’re looking for could be found in a single rose.”
Just show up
Every day and put the work in,
It doesn’t matter how bad it is, commits to it daily,
hundreds, thousands of bad pages, bad reps, bad drawings
Keep going, because the more bad work we do, the closer we get to producing something good,
Out of bad, we can create good, but out of nothing remains nothing
We are not the universe we are not going to create everything from one big bang’s worth of hard work,
We need to show up.
