Complacency

Did you know that most people spend their lives in the behavioral state of complacency?  They dream, they imagine, they want, but they take no action.  Many times the reason why is because people don’t feel they deserve, or they feel they don’t have what it takes to change their lives, or they don’t feel it’s possible for them.  They lack confidence or resources or ability to change. 

These are all excuses. 

The real problem is that most people don’t believe extraordinary change is possible for them. 

They wallow in preconceived and instilled conditioning as though it is their only fate.  And too many people stay in comfort zones that make them feel secure.  But comfort zones are dead zones and keep people from growing.

If you would only let go of rigid ideas, open up your mind to new ideas and possibilities, and believe it is possible for you, you will see miraculous changes take place.  Change is always happening. 

Why not choose your change. 

You are not stuck.  You don’t have to accept what you don’t want.  You have the ability to exercise control over your circumstances, your attitude, your behavior, your life.

 So your destiny is what you make to be.
