What Stops You From Making Needed Changes in Your Life?

Changes that we make which truly enhance the quality of our lives often only come after we have had enough of what we DON’T want. But this is tricky business because we usually find ways to divert ourselves from having enough with: sex, drugs, rock ‘n’ roll, facebook, sports, movies, TV, sleep, work, etc. So we pine for quality of life, but we rarely take the steps necessary to get there.
If we REALLY want to change our lives, we have to STOP diverting ourselves from the pain and anxiety of our lives. The diversion only supports the pain in the long run. And having enough gives us the energy and passion to make changes that help transform our lives into greater satisfaction, greater creativity, and a greater understanding of how to stop creating hell and start creating heaven!

Everybody Wants to…But Nobody Wants to!

I’ve started writing and accumulating all the “Everybody wants to but nobody wants to” sayings! Here’s what I’ve got so far:

Everybody wants to live a long life, but nobody wants to grow old.

Everybody wants to have lots of money, but nobody wants to really work for it.

Everybody wants to own the results but nobody wants to own the process.

Everybody wants to share their ideas but nobody wants to implement them.

Everybody wants to make their relationships work but nobody wants to change.

Everybody wants control but nobody wants responsibility.

Everybody wants to change the world but nobody wants to change.

Everybody wants choices but nobody wants to make choices.

Everybody wants to get great service but nobody wants to pay for it.

Everybody wants to be somebody but nobody wants to be themselves.

Everybody wants to be told the truth but nobody wants to tell the truth.

Everybody wants to be told the truth but nobody wants to hear the truth.

Everybody wants to do something to help but nobody wants to be the first.

Everybody wants to get an “A” but nobody wants to study.

Everybody wants to lose weight but nobody wants to exercise and eat less.

Everybody wants a harvest but nobody wants to hoe.

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.

Everyone wants to be accepted for who they are but nobody wants to accept others for who they are.

Send me any others that you have!

Thanks,

Subhan
