The Courage to Change

🔥 The Courage to Change

“Grant me the courage to change the things I can”

The second request in the serenity prayer is often overlooked….

The ability to change requires discipline rather than acceptance…

The ability to change requires continuous effort, diligence and hard work…

In other words it can be a lot more difficult to change the things you can, than it is to accept the things you can’t change…

And that is why courage is needed in order to affect change in your life…

Change can only come from within you…

Courage to change your bad habits…
Courage to change laziness…
Courage to change procrastination…
Courage to change dishonesty…
Courage to change judgment of others…
Courage to change gossip about others…
Courage to change negativity…

The list is endless…

And yet most won’t change a thing about themselves…

The reality is, there is a lot more to change about yourself needed, than there is to accept about others.

A hard pill to swallow but if your primary focus becomes the things you can change within yourself…

Acceptance of others for who they are and acceptance of life for what it is becomes natural.

Change can only start from within and God will take care of the rest.

Paul
