Are You Flexible and Open to Change?
by Joanne Troppello
When things don’t go according to plan, change the plan to fit the circumstances— being flexible to change will inspire the right plan.
Now those may be some lofty words, but they make sense when you’re trying to figure out your life plan and evaluate what’s working and what isn’t. If you want to live a life without limits, you’re going to have to plan your life around the philosophy of a person who wants a life without limits.
Okay, let’s dissect that perspective. It pays off in the long run to make a life plan; however, you can’t get stuck on things that will only limit your life rather than propelling your life into a life without limits.
So, what sorts of things get you stuck?
For one thing, having bitterness and un-forgiveness in your heart is a sure way to get stuck without a way of getting out. Well, the only way to get unstuck and out of bitterness is to forgive and move on. Don’t waste your life on things that don’t matter. Life is too short to get stuck in the mud and “ickiness” of an unforgiving life.
You can also get stuck when you are faced with obstacles in your pathway and you don’t think you’ll ever get over them.
My mom used to tell me where there’s a will there’s a way.
I truly believe that. If you want something badly enough, you’ll do what’s necessary to get it (anything legal, of course)—the question is: how badly do you want “this thing”? If it’s something worth fighting for in order to live a life without limits, then go for it.
Now, let’s be clear. A life without limits does not mean that you disobey rules and live destructively. A life without limits means that you live life with an attitude of gratitude and a persevering desire to stop your #1 enemy: lack of faith in yourself and your situation.
You also need to know how to find the balance in your life. Knowing when to quit a project that is going nowhere, doesn’t mean that you’re a quitter—it means that you know how to live life without limits. You know that wasting time on a project that is going nowhere is not going to get you to where you need to go. Knowing when to hang on to a project that just needs “a little more time,” and having the perseverance and discipline to see it through to completion…is going to take you over to the other side, to the winning side.
Knowing how to be flexible when obstacles come your way and things get rough is going to catapult you towards success. Just don’t give up and always keep your vision alive. You are your own biggest fan!
