Change?

From Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.”

“On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, “Is it safe?” Expediency asks the question, “Is it politic?” And Vanity comes along and asks the question, “Is it popular?” But Conscience asks the question “Is it right?” And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.”

“The saving of our world from pending doom will come, not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.”  
There was  a joke about a woman and her son who went to stay at a hotel in the desert. The boy opened the window and was surprised by this aweful, loud howling sound. He asked his mother if she knew what the sound was.

Mom responded “It’s a coyote on a cactus!”
The boy asks “But why doesn’t it get off the cactus?”

Mom responds “Because it does not hurt enough yet.”

Is there something in your life you are putting up with? Something painful, uncomfortable, perhaps mildly unpleasant but not quite bad enough to drop or change?
The question I ask myself in this type of situation is….Why? Is it the “devil you know…rather than the devil you don’t know?”

I have found that often it’s the momentum required to make the change that stops me. It means doing things, thinking thoughts, moving in a new direction for long enough to see and experience the positive results.

I know, personally I am an immediate gratification junkie at times. I also know that significant change, either in my life or my community at large comes from sticking to the new idea and plan until it’s done. This is why they say that 90% of success is merely showing up.
What are you willing to show up for….what GOOD is waiting for your diligence?
