When you see someone you know becoming successful, stop for just a second and take a look around you and ask yourself if this is the quality of life you were hoping for.
If your answer is “NO!”, then my question to you is “Why Not?”
When people are prompted with question such as this – “What are you doing to change your life?” Most replied that “it’s no use because…..” and so on and so forth…. these are just excuses!
Does it have to be that way? It’s a definite “NO!”
Stop Making Excuses And Just Do It!
The first step in getting out of any rut is to stop making excuses and assume responsibility for the quality of life that you are having.
You can change your life situation today!
How do I know? I know because many other people have done it. There will always be obstacles, but they can always be overcome. The only requirement is that YOU must have a desire to change.
Mark Twain once said “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” If your “want to” is strong enough, you can achieve almost anything you set your mind to.
The second step to getting out of the rut is step out of your comfort zone and have faith in what it is that you are going to do and, as the Nike commercial says, “Just do it”. There is no time like the present to change your situation. You might not succeed the first time, but you must keep trying. Success will come with persistency!
Remember the old saying “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” Don’t worry about making mistake in whatever thing you do. Albert Einstein once said “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”
So Step Out! Take a chance, and as William Durant, the founder of General Motors said
“Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.”

A leader is someone who is ahead of the pack. Even if it is only by one inch. They are doing, or have done, what they want or expect others to do. They are not watchers nor do they wait around. They take action...proper action....a lot of proper action! And they never give up! -- Jack M. Zufelt
