Why do people change?

There are a variety of reasons why people change. In most cases people change because of the experience they had in the past. They can either turn bitter or better. Its a choice between living and dying.

I’ve spent traveling all over Asia and Australia for the past year and have met a lot of people along the way. Most of them gave me answers on how I want to live my life. A year is all it took to make a difference. A lot of self reflection and realization that life is not just about living comfortably but being able to get through to life’s challenges successfully as an individual. It’s being able to do and concentrate on the things I want for myself and not worry about others happiness. To be my own, without any distractions, the feeling of being free of my own choices.

Have you ever been in a situation where in you feel helpless or the lack of freedom to do what you wanted to do? Have you ever felt yourself wanting to turn the situation around? Visualize yourself in a cross road. One path may be tough and another is a straight path. Most people would take the stress free path,  usually the experience is the same and already expected. Are you adventurous enough to take a different path than what your forefathers have passed through? The choice is yours.

“Be the change you want to see in the world” – Gandhi

The choices you make everyday, let it be something that makes you grow and become a better person. Let it make you feel fulfilled and make you feel that your life has a purpose. Don’t listen to what others tell you what your life’s supposed to be. We are after all unique in every way.
