Changing your life takes time. That’s a fact. Some changes take less time than others, but they take time. Some changes are necessary, and some aren’t needed. This process is usually beneficial to a person’s life when they choose to change the aspects that will help better themselves, and that requires getting rid of the bad habits that can affect their progress. The key to success isn’t to scold or punish yourself when you do something that you want to stop doing or drift back into your old ways. The key is using the new tools that you’ve acquired to keep on your path to changing for the better. A primary example is someone who becomes born again. The first couple of months they are a new person and no longer doing anything they used to do. Then as time goes on they slip up or drift back into old habits. A lot of times they get down on themselves and feel like a failure, and that opens the opportunity to relapse.
Change takes time and more importantly effort. The effort put into changing yourself is what transforms you into the person you want to be. The effort is the key. Born again Christians choose to begin to change their lives and turn it over to Christ. Some forget that after you done this you can’t go back to who you were. You are his child now and he will always love and forgive you even if you do wrong or make mistakes. Prior to giving your life to Christ, you didn’t have the tools to correct yourself and the knowledge of what that change will bring and that’s a major difference. The journey to becoming great is more important than the decision to be great.
The reason for change can be the determining factor as well. People change for the wrong reasons too much. A lot of times they do it for other people and not for themselves. Whether it’s a career choice, a relocation, or a simple appearance change, it’s best if it’s done because you want to, not because everyone else wants you to. You got to do the things that make that person in the mirror happy, as you see him every morning in the mirror.
