This is the fifth installment of “Be Ready for the Wonderful: Words of Well-Being to Ease Your Way Through Change.”

Be a Champion for Your Own Life

Although you may gather a wide circle of support to assist you through turbulent transitions, ultimately you are the star of your own show.

The unfailing commitment to redesign your life must originate within you. Only you can muster the inner fortitude required for the spiritual heavy lifting you will face.

When you bump up against walls and need someone to speak on your behalf, the strongest, most capable advocate you will ever know…is you. This does not suggest that you are destined to slog through change alone and untended. There are friends, family members, practitioners, and trusted guides who can support you in many, many ways as you traverse the landscape of change.

They may hold your hand, steady your arm, help you get a grip on your nervousness, and point you in the right direction. But there can only be one who will breathe, eat, drink, sleep, dream, and walk your path of personal transformation — and that individual is you.
