Being 20-something part 3


So I came across this picture on the Zig Ziglar facebook page and immediately thought about my mission to make better choices. I also thought about some advice I got early on to own my problems, seek solutions and not be a blame passer. Sadly I see a lot of 20-somethings (and more shockingly even older people) who simply complain about life but will not take any steps to change.

We know that the golden rule for change is that it starts on the inside. We have to acknowledge that there is something we need to change. Without that internal push, it is unlikely we will see any longer term progress. I posted the picture above to encourage myself and anyone else who knows that they need to take action. The 20s have this bad reputation of being takers and expecting things to be given to us. (Well certainly in the UK). How amazing would it be if we used the power we have to make that decision to be and do more.  To fulfill our potential and live abundant lives….

Well, we can!
