READY FOR FREEDOM?
THEN GET READY TO TAKE ACTION
So many times I see students go to lectures, read books, take classes, and get really excited about some new goal. They do this new thing for a while. They talk about it, and talk about it some more. And then pretty soon, they’re couch potatoes again. They’re in front of the television, staring out of glazed eyes, mouth watering from watching fast food and beer commercials, and the only action they’re taking is through a traffic jam to the refrigerator instead action for their lives!
You’ve heard the expression, “Nothing succeeds like success.” Here’s another: “Nothing changes you like change.” When you are finally ready to claim your freedom, when you’re really ready to stop being a victim and take charge of your life, you are ready to make a change. Change means to take action not to talk about it, not to give up after an enthusiastic start, not to hold back in fear, but to actually do something.
Making changes helps set you free by opening up many more alternatives and options for you. A person who knows just one way of doing something, just one way of being, is not as free as the person who can choose from many options. Some of the actions you will need to take involve making changes that encourage you to look at additional options.
