Nothing in life is permanent. We must all learn to compromise and be adaptable to change. Whether it is personal or it is regarding your professional life, it is imperative to be ready all the time as the world and people can be fickle. Learn a new skill; maximize your creativity as much as possible so when that change comes, you are ready and not scared. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Try to have as many baskets as you as you can so when one falls apart, it is easy for you to pick up the pieces.

Life is a competition. Survival of the fittest, fight for what you want or someone else will take it. People don’t hold doors anymore. ~Unknown
In Life: Always know how to set yourself up from competition as when someone tells you to run one mile, do 10 miles. 😉

If you surround yourself with what you are passionate about, your competitors won’t stand a chance. Look for something you would do for free and then find a way to make money by doing what you love the most.

Making a decision:
Every time I would make an emotional decision, it is most of a time guaranteed failure. So now since I am planning and working for a change that could alter my life, I stopped and seeked advice from several people close to me. My emotional self, wants it all but realistically not so. My conscience was telling me to weigh first the pros and cons of making the decision so I decided to do otherwise. I need to think this through and plan it out more carefully. Seeking the advice of experts and love ones made me realized not to rush things right away. I made some revisions on the proposal that is more conducive and safer for me. To make it short, a wiser move. Start small and will plan the bigger move when the right time comes. For now, I will take my sweet time and check other options if the revised plan does not fall through.

They even went out of there way to stop him because they believed it was not real. Indiana Jones did not let others (naysayers) affect his plan because he believed in his heart that the stories were real. What a wonderful article about 5 life lessons from Indiana Jones..
I am about to make a decision —a change in my life…It is a difficult decision because it requires a belief, research, a plan, an alternative or and a deviation if it does not work out. However, I will pursue the dream..I will find a way to make it happen through research and an extensive plan to make it work. It is a scary feeling but but but I must move forward and go for it.
