Day 139: Why It’s So Hard To Make Changes

It seems that every single time that we try to make changes in our life we fall short of the results that we hope to make happen.  We read self-help books, watch self-help YouTube videos, etc…, and we might make a bit of progress but never as much as we had hoped.    I don’t believe that the “problem” is us…it’s that we are trying to force ourselves into a box that someone else made to fit a large number of people.  We don’t fit into anyone’s box.  We are individuals and there is absolutely no box anywhere that fits us.  So stay away from boxes.  If someone promises that they can “fix” us, they are lying or at least exaggerating.  Besides, we are not broken.  We do not need to be fixed by anyone.  Anything that we can possibly desire to be or accomplish, we are capable of making it happen.  We might need some encouragement or a little assistance from others but that is all.  So, forget about all of the self-help things that you’ve tried in the past that didn’t work.  You were not a failure.  You were failed by people promising you that they had all the answers.  So, just trust your gut.  You know what you want and somewhere inside you, you know how to get it.  Believe in yourself.
