What if you had a special remote control in which you could rewind, pause, or fast forward parts of your life? Would you rewind and change anything from your past? Would you fast forward through some current events? Would you fast forward to the future to where you have “arrived” at a position you want to be at?
Click, The Movie
I just watched the movie “Click” starring Adam Sandler with my son. We watched it before, however, this time we talked about having “regrets” in our lives and about missing special moments, past, present, and future. I was like Adam Sandler’s character, Michael, where all I did was work at the job, trying to “get promoted” to provide for my family. Fast forward to 1995, and I realized I had missed 8 years of my son’s life, and it was like I had a remote control which when I pressed the fast forward button, showed me the future where my son was now an adult and I had no relationship with him. I also saw us struggling financially and we were not there for our family. I knew I had to make a change in 1995, and I feel so blessed today that I found the home based network marketing business industry which totally changed the course of our lives!
If You Keep On Doing The Same Things
It was like the movie “Click”, where Michael was able to go into the future seeing what would happen if he kept on doing the same things he was doing day in and day out. He was able to “see” and then he had the opportunity to change. If you are reading this, I hope you will take some time to press the “fast forward” button of your life, and see what your life will be like if you keep doing things the way you are doing them today. The world is changing so quickly right now, and honestly you can’t keep on doing things the same way anymore.
The Pain Of Discipline Or the Pain Of Regret
I remember our mentor Jim Rohn saying “We suffer one of two things. Either the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. You’ve got to choose discipline, versus regret, because discipline weighs ounces and regret weighs tons.” If you look back on your life and you have some pain of regret, make the decision today to never feel that pain again. Decide today that you will change and be a little uncomfortable while you are learning new skills which will require some discipline. It will set you free and then you will be able to rewind your life one day, and say “I am so grateful, I made the decision to change in 2010″.
Here’s a scene from the movie “Click”, which changed Michael’s life. Please take the time to watch, you won’t regret it:
