Three Things in This World That You Can and Can’t Change


In this world, there are three things that you cannot change: people, places, and things. However, there are three things that you can change in your life: the people that you associate with, the places you go, and the things you do.  As Jeff states in his video above, “The reality is the only power of change that you really have is the power to change the person you are.”

If you live your life to the fullest and be the person that you can truly be proud of, you should be able to live your life without regret.  Jeff asks you, “Do you have the courage to look in the mirror and look at your life in phases: where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re going?”  If you associate with people, places, and things that have a positive impact in your life, you should have no problem answering this question.  If you find yourself in places doing things that you would not be willing to admit and sign on a written document, you need to bring change in your life.

It does not matter where in the world you live; live without blaming life on the circumstances around you.  Life is what you make of it.  You could live a life of wealth with the best circumstances that you can imagine, but you could still be unhappy depending on how you view your life.  If you are able to turn on a computer and read this, know that there are people out there that have much less than you and much worse circumstances in their lives.  However, depending on how you view your life, they may live much happier lives simply because they choose to do so.

Jeff asks you to “have the courage to look in the mirror and realize the things you can’t change and accept the things you can change.”  Everything in your life comes down to two things: your attitude and your own choices.  Positively changing both of these can make the difference between living a life of regrets and living a life of happiness.
