One thing people don't like is change. But with change comes growth. Don't run from change. You need to start drinking 8 eight oz glasses of water a day. Don't say, I can't; I don't drink that much water now. I can't change to do that. Sure you can. You need to start moving more. Don't think; I can't make that kind of change. Yes you can!
If you keep doing the thing you always do, expect the thing you always get. Come on, make that change.
Whatever that change might be. Embrace it and see what new things it will do for you.

Embrace Change, Even If It's Uncomfortable At First
Getting used to doing things differently, like changing cooking and eating habits and working out (even just fitting a workout in to my day) can make me bristle at times. It's not what I'm "used to". But when I start feeling like this, I ask myself, "Well, how was that old way of life working for you? You have to change habits to expect different results." It sounds so simplistic, and it is, but sometimes that little reminder is what I need to motivate myself to make healthy choices.
Change is a fact of life. Given time, circumstance, or an unfortunate sequence of events, your ‘world’ will change at some point. Use that knowledge to appreciate what you have in the present. Constantly look for ways to adapt and improve the person you are. If the Present doesn’t ‘work’ for you, use THAT feeling as motivation to change your life into something better. You’ll be happy you did, and so will the people who care about you
People often hit plateaus and wonder why nothing is HAPPENING. It’s almost as if our bodies are telling us, it needs a change and a challenge to become ‘stronger’ and live. Change your routines, your menu, your activities, your thinking. Look forward to Change as a way to try something new.
