I Want to Change My Life

I created this blog because I want to change my life and I want to create a life that's worth living.  From my experience, I can say it's not that hard to create something different than what your accustomed to (watch the video below).

The trick is to maintain the change.  If we're not careful or if we don't guard our thoughts, the old habits will creep back in and before we know it, we're right back where we started.

How Many Times Have You Changed Your Life?

How many times have you changed only to end up right back to the same bad habits and people you wanted to avoid?  I know the feeling because it's happened to me so many times I lost count.

I've helped elect a mayor and I've attended lunches with senators and governors. But I always ended up back in the ghetto injecting or smoking drugs. I've even worked for a presidential candidate and had dinner on a regular basis with a federal judge whom I consider a close friend.

As you can see, I've done very well at certain parts of my life. I want to change my life to what it was like at my best points. I have launched businesses and worked for some of the best corporations in the United States only to end up back where I started.

Currently, I am 50 years of age and I want to change my life for the better once and for all.  I am sick and tired of being sick and tired... the italicized words are used in Alcoholics Anonymous repeatedly because they work. Just like the questions below, it is designed to motivate people.

Questions to Answer to Begin Creating a Different Life

If you don't make time for what matters to you, how can others value your importance? The questions below are designed to help you create different thought patterns. Some people might say the questions are food for thought and they'd be right because that's exactly what they are.

Take your time reading the questions and pick those that are important to you. Write the questions you want to focus on then begin writing your answers. The exercise doesn't have to be completed in one sitting. Work on it for a few days or longer. As long as your focusing and thinking about them, you are on the right track.

  • Who am I?
  • How do I think of myself?
  • What are my strengths
  • What are my weaknesses?
  • Who do I want to be?
  • Why am I important?
  • What is my mission?
  • What am I missing?
  • Why am I afraid of making changes or of taking risks?
  • Do I fear failure or the responsibility that could come with success?
  • Could I embrace change as an adventure?
  • What has stopped me from keeping resolutions in the past?
