The Beginning...

 So, this is when we get into the opening...the start.


Often, what I have found is that, once we get the paraphernalia right to kick start something to action, we are ready to gather all our energies, enthusiasm and excitement freely into it. Remember the earliest days of putting into action a new resolution?? The only thing is that there is a lot of tendency to get back very easily to the stage prior to this initiation...We just give up mid way and somehow find an excuse to return to what we call our 'normalcy'...
 

 Why does this happen? Is it because we were too comfortable with the earlier stage? Were we so content? Were we so attached to our erstwhile identity that we just didn't want to get it maneuvered in any form, however minute it may be? Even if we are pretty sure that it will, in some form, result in our own drive towards personal expansion? Then..why at all did we think of trying to come up with a new idea to bring about a transformation?

There is only one reason why we try going back. We resist the change happening. We just try to freeze within our comfort zones. And this inertia happens to everyone. The only ones who come out of it are those who consciously overcome this.
And now the way to keep ourselves going strongly with our reformative plans is to observe. Just observe what really is happening. The thing is that, most of the problems arise when we view too much from the internal perspective. What if we try seeing it inside out? I mean, just looking at yourself from an outside angle? As if we are a complete stranger to ourselves? 

Then...we see...the way we behave. When we just step out from our own shoes, at least for a few minutes..we observe, understand and more importantly, start getting closer to our real selves.

Now what do we see when we step back? The image of our own selves?  Okay..Let's imagine,,
We see ourselves (our image) slightly taking a step back..And finding an excuse..ruthlessly kicking back that idea that pops up, yelling "Hey you told me you are going to stick to this!!!".

And before that image goes into a stage of self-abnegation, we suddenly put off our shoes (Remember Cinderella??;) and become ourselves again and say...No...I am not going to give up...

This is how it works...Because, often..what it takes to keep on with a resolution is a few seconds of deep thought..Just a few seconds about why this resolution...rather... why not keep up with this?

And once we are able to surmount  that small obstacle, we have won over ourselves. And that is when we get back to our real selves...Because, those few seconds are the difference between what I wanted to be and what I am today...

God knows...those few seconds may, in the long run..even shape the way your life is going to get a major turnaround...

Once we understand this, it will be far easier for us to bring about any changes that we may desire to implement. After everything is said and done, remember, its our life. And only we can decide the way it should turn out to be.
