The Questions We Ask Ourselves, and God (Part 3): When Are Things Going To Change?

“If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” 

~Mary Engelbreit 

When you get stuck in a period of your life where nothing seems to be going the way that you think it should be you will start to question when things are going to change for you?  The answer to that is simple but we tend to make it much more complicated then it has to be.  Things will change when you make the decision to change them.  

I know how it feels to be in that place where everything is going wrong.  You think that things are going so bad that they can never get better.  You start to wonder what you did to bring this kind of ‘bad luck’ your way.  You even go over in your head things you could have done in a different way so that maybe things wouldn’t feel so impossible.  You start to contemplate whether you will come out of that bad place long enough to make your dreams a reality.  It’s a place that nobody likes to be in.  But you don’t have to stay there.    

Your attitude towards whatever your circumstances are determines the outcome of those circumstances.  If you stay insistent that nothing is going to get better, that nothing is going to change, then why would you be surprised when they don’t.  You attract what it is that you want so if you want to gain control of that situation and you want things to turn around then you have to change your mindset.  Nothing is going to change if you don’t believe that it can. 

Whatever your dreams are, it is never too late for them to come true.  You may be down but you most certainly are not out.  If you know that there are some things in your life that you need to change, all you need to do is take that step to change it.  When you take that step that is when things are going to start to change for you.  You just have to believe that they can, in fact, change.
