We all like to do lot of things in life. We wish things can change, people can change. We complain about people who do not work or who takes advantage of us but rarely do we make attempts to bring the change that we want to see.
There could be many reasons for this –
1. You are afraid – Afraid to make the change because you fear that you might fail, afraid that you might hurt someone, afraid of the consequence of your actions. You are not willing to take the risk
2. You do not know what to do – Sometimes you sincerely want to change things but you do not know how to do it.
3. You do not want to change – You are just the person who likes to complain, who likes to talk about change but you do not want to be the one doing it. If someone else does it for you then you would accept it.
These are fairly broad categories and most of us fall in either the first or the second category or perhaps both. It’s a fair assumption that with any change there are consequences. For example – say you do not like your boss. You want to do something about it but you do not know how to do it. You are afraid that if you complain it might get you into trouble. On the other hand you would be happy if there was a way to tackle the situation without complaining but you do not know how?
Sometimes solution could be as simple as speaking to the person about the problem. Sometimes depending on the situation you might have to do more. But the important point is that you must make an attempt. Attempt to find a solution, attempt to get things right. If you do not know talk to a friend, get others opinion but at the end, it is your decision.
We miss out on lot of things by not making an attempt to achieve it. Think of it this way. You already do not have it, so even if it doesn’t work out you have nothing to lose but if it does work out then you will feel satisfied and will also learn that your success was just one step away.
