Don’t we often see a problem, but prefer to look the other way or find an excuse to keep things the way they are? If that is the case, in this post, I present you with four steps for change to happen. None of them are easy, but if you take them serious and into account you will get some where.
The need for change can come in the form of a problem, something we dislike, something that has been or not been. This can be something within yourself, or your surroundings. Whatever it is, or wherever it derives from, the first step is to notice it and recognize it.
The next step is to have the motivation and the desire to do what it takes to make a change. If you are the one who notices the need, who wants the need, then its in your hands to start off. And you may just be half way there if you really have the fire and what it takes to move towards the actions.
MAKE A PLAN
So where do you start? With a plan. Change does not come in a sunrise. It takes early mornings and late evenings. It is hard work. A little bit here and little bit more over there, but in the end you know it will be well worth it. At this time you are not making excuses, you are setting steps for triumph.

In this last step, most of the action takes place. It is here where success or failure is defined. Where we see if we made it to the finish line, stayed half way, or came close. If you want to make it to the end, always look back to the first three steps. Never forget what the problem was, your will to change it, and the plan you made.
I hope this post was useful, and if you are looking for change, I hope you take it into account. I look forward to sharing how I have used these steps in a change that I am working within my self, for myself, and to be happier with my self.
So take five minutes of you day, recognize something you wish to change, if you think you have what it takes, I challenge you to move on with the next steps.
