Everyone expects themselves to improve every year, they have this hope that they will have achieved far more after a year of doing the same things. For these people, every year is a disappointment. They are the same person that they were a year ago, only a year older. Most people have encountered this situation, and it is demoralising. One doesn’t want to be in it, instead one should actively pursue their goals and stick to them to find themselves with different results in the future.
One cannot expect to have better outcomes if they don’t considerably change their current routine, it is madness to think otherwise. People always do this though, and then they complain that they aren’t achieving anything. What are they expecting? Massive success needs huge change. You cannot keep the same routine and expect a better outcome.
One will learn to change and learn to deal with its outcomes. You cannot expect things to work out even with change, but at least you know if you succeed or fail. It will not guarantee success, but not changing will guarantee failure. With change comes learning of what to do and what not to do, all of which will aid your future development. One needs to tweak their routine until they are reaching the result that they crave. If they don’t, then they should prepare themselves for a stagnant lifestyle.
Don’t choose the easy way, that is a life with no change. Embrace change and understand that change is necessary. An easier life won’t be a happier nor a more fulfilling one. Put the effort into changing and see your life quality improve drastically. The worst feeling is being in the same position a year later wishing that you would have acted a year before. This feeling can last forever and the only way to prevent it is by acting now. The only thing one will say if they do finally act is that they should have done so before.
No change will guarantee failure. One should take the risk and change, there is little to lose and a lot to gain.
