quotes about change

How often have you heard someone say something along the lines of, “I wish I had done X or Y before”? Or maybe you’ve said it yourself. The problem is, no matter how much time passes, we never seem to get around to changing our habits.

It’s true that we all want to change our lives for the better, but sometimes we don’t know where to start. There are plenty of inspirational quotes out there, but they aren’t always helpful. They might even make you feel bad because you’re comparing yourself to other people who have achieved their goals.

Instead of looking at other people’s success stories, look at the failures. This way, you’ll see what didn’t work for them and why. Then, you can apply those lessons to your situation and create a plan to achieve your goals.
