John c. Maxwell said, when it comes to change, there are really only three kinds of people
- Those who don’t know what to do
- Those who know what to do, but don’t do it.
- Those who know what to do and follow through.
Trust me, there are a lot of people in the first category, who are struggling with a lot of things but don’t just know what to do to get out. There is always something pulling them back into their comfort zone any time they desire to find out what they need to do.
The second category can be very tricky, my spiritual father Bishop David Oyedepo use to say “it is not what you know that changes you but what you do with what you know that does”. There are some people that have been able to break that barrier that hold others down from finding what they need to do but actually lack the force to do them.
On a very serious note, I myself also struggle with this at time. I would find out what needs to be done but struggle to do them even though I know it is profitable.
I found out that as humans we enjoy being in our comfort zone, and anything that clashes with our comfort zone, we most times fight it, and there is absolutely no change that would not take you out of your comfort zone.
So I love what James Clear calls “1% growth”, and john C. Maxwell puts it as “get a little better every day”.
So don’t be scared by the big things and big changes you desire to attain, just take it little by little.
Change is change no matter how slow.
