On the heels of my post, “Habit vs. lifestyle…,” I read an article that begins with this sentence: One of the hardest things in life is feeling stuck in a situation that we don’t like and want to change. In the next breath, I opened an email promoting an article about mediocrity, stating that everything we have in our lives is what we want; i.e., if we wanted something different, we’d have something different. The author maintains that until we really want to change, we won’t. Our lives and our environments are a reflection of our desires. When our desires change, we adapt our environment to match our new desires. So what am I saying? In order to change, we must eliminate everything that contradicts our highest values. And then make a decision, followed by a commitment—always surrounding ourselves with the kind of friends who lift us higher. Finally, we must remember: a negative mind will not create a positive life.

What do you want to change?
