OPINION – They say the definition of insanity is: “doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.” With so many opportunities in this world to achieve a life worth living, I can’t help but to wonder why there is such a disconnect between those who want more and others who actually have more.

I recall a time in my life when the majority of my conversations were of wanting so badly for my circumstances to change however, after doing what I like to call a “check up from the neck up”, I became fully aware that although I desired changes to happen in my life, I was consistently operating day in and day out by doing the same exact thing. The problem was clear; I was insane.

I was wandering through life aimlessly hoping that all the things I verbally spoke of would magically manifest in the physical realm and I would instantly go from wanting more to actually having
it. However, there was one problem with that existence; Even though I desired change, I had not yet changed myself. Again, I was insane.

You see, when we are mindful of our minds we get to live a new life. It is not the manifestations of our external circumstances that come first, those things will always be a after thought of growing into a new level of being. By becoming consciously aware that yes thoughts are things, but in order to attain what your true heart desires, we must make internal progress which allows us to recognize opportunities, people, places and things which will be an aide to our next level growth.

Because in the end, for things to change we must change.

Be Bold. Be Great. Be You.
