Pay The Price
Change is a word that most people don’t like to hear. It’s not that people don’t want things to change, they don’t want to change! We want change without the pain of personal adjustment. I think we all want improvement. Who goes to the store to buy an old refrigerator? No one! When you go shopping you want the new and improved! I think we all want progress, we don’t want to pay the price for it.
Every place in life has a price tag attached to it. When I’m looking to do something, I always ask myself, “What’s the price I’m going to have to pay to get it?” You can be anywhere you want in life as long as you’re willing to pay the price. Lisa and I sat down last year and we decided I was going to limit my travel schedule to 10 days a month. It had an impact on our income but it was a price I was willing to pay so that I could still attend my boy’s soccer games and my daughters dance recitals. I’m willing to pay the price of less income so I can be home more with my family. What price do you need to pay?
1. Information is Enough
Most of the time when I’m not performing well, it’s not an information problem but a motivational problem. With my nutrition, I know what I need to eat, it’s just at times I don’t want to! Look at the word emotion. Most of it is motion! Emotion is what creates the energy to change! What are you motivated to change in your life today?
2. People Can Change by Themselves
Change is a team sport. God has not created people to change in a vacuum Modification demands accountability. The very fact that I have coaches checking up on me helps me want to have the right answer! Who do you have in your life that can hold you accountable for change?
