"If you're not willing to risk the unusual,
you will have to settle for the ordinary."
-- Jim Rohn
As I lay down and thought I was going to go to sleep, a well-used phrase popped into my head and it refused to leave. It was this: "what are you willing to do to have what you want?" Who knows who said it first, but it has been said by many. It is a great question.
Several blocks away there is a house that has very little paint left, and the wood is in bad shape. Having been built in 1965, it appears that it is the original paint. The bushes, yard are in similar shape and there is a really old single guy who lives there. He is probably the original owner. You would think that he refuses change, but the reality is that his house is changing whether he likes it or not. It is more true that he has no interest, and certainly doesn't value keeping his house up. I wouldn't be surprised that the inside is in similar shape.
Some people don't want much I suppose, but most people do. The great thing about we humans is that we are always wanting something. We often tire of things being the same after a short time and we want something more, better, cooler, more satisfying, with more features, time-saving, labor-saving, satisfaction-giving things. Though we say we don't like change, the real truth is that we crave change.
So, what are you willing to do to have what you want? Maybe a lot. It could be everything, or it could be very little. We all seem to have a comfort zone that we stay close to, and the closer we stay to this the smaller our changes can be. If we desire a major change, it is likely to require a major change, perhaps even a large risk. That scares the hell out of many.
We all draw the line somewhere. Where is yours? What do you want? What are you willing to do to achieve what you want? Some say they want big change but are only willing to risk a little. I know from experience that this generally means the big change is only a dream and will probably never be a reality. Hanging on to security is like being tied to a post in the ground. You can only go so far and you are held back.
Just as the question, what are you willing to do in order to have what you want is important to consider, how about taking it a step further. What are you willing to change in order to live your life more fully? As a born creator, have you learned to be conforming with others which stifles your creative agenda?
