Keep Trying to Get Better

by Jonathan Longnecker

I would guess that 90% of the people you meet deal with the same problems they’ve dealt with their whole life. Maybe they’re workaholics (lifting my own hand). Maybe they have anger issues. Maybe they’re lazy or maybe they lack self esteem.

We all have personality traits and tendencies that we’re not proud of, but that’s no excuse to accept them.

The first step is admitting you have a problem, right? Or maybe in this case becoming aware that you need to change something. Depending on what the problem is, this can be a huge step.

But I’d say most people generally know where they need to improve. The kicker is doing something about it. Why is it so hard? Because it’s so easy to do nothing.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to wake up 30 years from now and be dealing with the same junk I am now. It won’t be easy, but I owe it to my family, my friends, my business and myself to be better.

So what are we waiting for? Let’s buck the trend and be the 10% that don’t settle for staying the same. Let’s try growing.
