This website won’t change your life. That self-help book on the nightstand next to your bed isn’t going to do it either. Not a single word you read has the power to make any difference in your life. That quote from Gandhi changes nothing.
This article isn’t going to change your life. It might be the most inspiring thing you’ve read all day but it isn’t going to do you a damn bit of good.
The truth I hope you’ll realize by the end of this article is that reading it hasn’t changed anything.
It hasn’t changed anything not because the knowledge contained in the words isn’t valuable, or that the lesson taught isn’t sound. But if you quit reading this article right now, you aren’t going to miss out on anything that is going to change your life.
If you’re trying to change your life, you’re at the wrong place doing the wrong thing. If you’re searching for some insight, the answers to your problems might be contained within the pages of a book or blog, but even if you do find the solution, it isn’t going to do you any good.
It isn’t going to solve anything.
Having the answer isn’t the solution. Gaining knowledge may make you wiser, but it doesn’t matter how smart you become. Despite all the information you consume, unless you incorporate that knowledge into your life, it’s served you no purpose.
You can only change your life by taking action; by making decisions and following through. You have to commit to more than the desire for change, but to change itself. Improving your life cannot be done without action. A book can’t act for you. The most inspiring quote you’ve ever read isn’t going to make anything different.
“Action expresses priorities.” ~ Gandhi
No. That’s up to you.
If you want to change your life, quit reading this and change your life.
