Living the Life You Love by Paula Renaye





If you value it, you’ll make time for it.
If it’s important to you, you’ll make it happen.

What are you willing to do to live the life you love? What are you willing to do to get what you really want?

These seem like simple questions, don’t they? The answers may seem simple too, and you may be thinking, “I’ll do whatever it takes to get what I want,” or “I’ll do anything, absolutely anything, to fix my problem. “Well, these are nice thoughts, but they aren’t true. I know for an absolute fact that you won’t do “anything.” I won’t.

If my goal is to have more money, I’m not willing to rob a bank to get it. Are you? That’s an extreme example, but it does highlight the fact that things may not be as clear-cut as you think.

So, let’s try it again with a bit of a twist. Are you willing to change yourselfin order to get what you want and live a life you love?

Talk about getting to the hard stuff right out of the gate! Seriously, think about it. Are you willing to let go of some of your thoughts, beliefs and behaviors? Are you willing to consider that something you thought of as “just the way it is” may not be? Are you willing to change critical aspects of your life to get what you say you want? How much of the way things are right now—the way you are right now—are you really willing to change?

I can hear you already: “Of course I’m willing to change. I know I need to change some things or I wouldn’t be reading this!”

Not so fast.

How about where you live? Are you willing to move? Quit your job? Go back to school? End a relationship? We all think we’re willing to do anything—absolutely anything—to make things different in our lives in order to accomplish a goal we say we want or to stop some pain that has us on our knees. But is it really true?

Let’s try a different question: What in your life are you not willing to change? Your job? Where you live? How often you talk to your mother? What you eat? Who you hang out with? Whether you have pets? What you do in your spare time? Who you live with?

Before you can realistically expect your dreams to come true, you have to figure out why they haven’t already. Recognizing what you’re not willing to do is a great first step.

For example, if you have a full-time job and watch television four hours every night, and you’re not willing to quit working or stop watching television, then it’s going to be difficult for you to meet a variety of goals. You can’t go back to school unless you take weekend classes. You can’t work out every other day unless you park an exercise machine in front of the television.
