It is so simple but often lost in all the noise of the day.
The only way for there to be an improvement in your life something must change, and for the “something” to change “someone” must change it. Most often that someone will be you.
Let me ramp it up a bit.
For there to be significant improvement in your life there will have to be significant change. Incremental change is to die the death of a thousand cuts. Significant improvement can only come as a result of significant change and significant change can only come as a result of significant commitment and effort.
Don’t be a victim here. Complaining because someone else won’t change will not change a thing (except make you feel worse). Waiting and hoping that others will change leaves you at their mercy. There is only one person that you can be absolutely certain of who will be willing to make a significant change—you.
Start there and believe with God’s help that there is no situation that can’t become significantly better as a result of your changed behavior.
The ONE THING for today: Significant improvement requires significant change and all significant change begins with a decision to act.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
