You Are the Magic

Have you ever felt like you’re not very important? I think most of us feel like that from time to time. I know I have – many times.

It’s easy to feel down on yourself sometimes. Perhaps you feel no one listens to you or cares what you think. Maybe you think no one understands you. Or perhaps you’ve been working very hard on something, yet nobody shows much interest in it.

Whether we’re:

  • building our business,
  • advancing our career,
  • working on our relationships,
  • looking to make new friends,
  • improving our health,
  • or working on other goals

we need to always keep one idea in the front of our minds.

‘I am the magic.’

That’s it.

If I’m going to achieve my goals, it’s up to me to make it happen.

It’s good to have other people who will look out for you and offer support. But others – even close friends and family – are ultimately responsible for their own lives, not yours.

We have to learn to stand on our own feet. If we want all these ‘better’ things, we need to become ‘better’ people. We need to grow and expand. We need to invest in ourselves.

Some people invest in a new car or some other toy to make them feel better about not achieving other things they really want. But smart people know to invest in themselves. They know that they are the magic.

In my opinion, one of the best investments you can make in yourself lies in improving your change fitness. By improving your capacity to succeed at change, you unlock doors to many other things you want from life.

Whether that be a better business, career, relationship, or health, becoming more successful at change makes all those things more within your reach.

You are the magic. Develop your change fitness and go for what you really want.
