A dear friend of mine has been wanting to quit smoking for a long time.
My neighbour’s daughter is in an abusive relationship and has been wanting to leave the relationship for some years.
An acquaintance’s relative is on drugs and has been wanting to seek help for a few years.
Another friend of mine is bored to death of her job and has been intending to explore other options.
I have had a few clients who break out in sweat every time they have to speak in public and they have spent years “intending” to improve their public speaking skills.
I could go on, but I guess you got the gist already…
For most people, it is something they do, which they really want to stop doing. For others, it is something they don’t do, which they want to start doing.
But, isn’t it true that a lot of people never really achieve this change?
They keep wanting to…, intending to…, or trying to…
New year resolutions mean absolutely nothing, if year after year, they remain on that piece of paper or just in your head.
What is stopping you from making that change?
What is limiting you from walking out of that situation?
What is holding you back from taking that step in the direction you want?
It might not be easy, but nobody promised you anything was going to be easy.
It might require more than I know, but I do not know everything.
One thing I do know though is that, it is not enough to want to do it, or to stop doing it, you have to actually do it or stop doing it.
You have to move. Take it one step at a time, but for the love of all that is good, MOVE!
