That’s a broad question, but a powerful one. It could mean making some small changes in your lifestyle, like going to bed an hour early to get more sleep. Or it could mean completely redoing your health routine — investing in a coach, going to the gym, and starting a new diet.
And it doesn’t just apply to fitness. There are so many areas in our lives that we should pay attention to and continually try to improve. For example, how’s your mental health? Maybe on the outside, your life looks perfect, but on the inside, you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, and loneliness.
Sometimes, we know we need to make a change, but that change seems impossible. Perhaps you know you need to quit your job, but you’re afraid of the financial insecurity. Or maybe, you know you need to lose weight, but you don’t feel like you have the resources or the motivation to begin a fitness plan.
Tricia Cunningham wrote, “The individual who says it is not possible should move out of the way of those doing it.” And Oprah Winfrey said, “Turn your wounds into wisdom.” No matter what difficulty you’re facing in life right now — whether it be related to career, health, or relationships — you have the power to push through the impossible and make a change.
