Who Motivates You To Change?

World Class? Prove It!
World Class? Prove It!

Change is the only constant.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Mostly, we hate change. But yet we are surrounded by it. At work. At home. On the news. In our face. Everywhere.

And deep down inside, we know that change has many positive benefits, and with hard work, we CAN change.

But who pushes you?

Who gets in your face and reminds you you can’t quit?

Is it you?  Do you coach yourself?

And if you are self-coached, where did you learn it, from a book, a seminar, a show?  Let’s be real.

Your biggest and best change came when someone believed you could do what you didn’t believe you could do. The “coach” got in your face and pushed you, and rode you, and drove you to excellence.

Who’s coaching you now?

Or don’t you care anymore?

Prove it.

  1. Jeff,

    I believe it is God more than any person that pushes me. He created me with an internal “drive” that pushes me even when everyone else seems to be saying, “Give it up” or “Compromise and settle.” So from the outside looking it, it looks like I am self-coached, but I believe it is God-coached.

    I am definitely a Type-A personality with that internal push, but God made me that way. I have always been that way. The problem, though, with being that way is that I do face disappointments a bit because my drive doesn’t always meet with success (one of those Type-A traits for sure). But God dusts me off and picks me back up again for another turn at this wild bronco ride called “life.” 🙂

    Keep moving forward. – Walt Disney
    If your goal isn’t impossible….

  3. Absolutely! I guess I never learned that quitting is an option! 🙂 That’s one thing I hope I never learn.

  4. It is definitely addicting…and easy.
    Keep that strength alive, Bob!
    So much is touted about the power of the Human Will. But it can also be your worst enemy.
    Obviously, God made sin that way to challenge us.

    Stay Strong Brother!

  5. Craig, Bob, everyone,
    Seeing readers interact is addicting too, and if I remember correctly, way back when I first learned about social media, this is the goal – social interaction.
    Thank you for feeding the addiction. 🙂
