Change Is a Cycle, Says Vijay Eswaran

Vijay Eswaran, one of the greatest life coaches and motivational speakers, has some of the most beautiful insights about change. He says that first of all, you have to change from within. When you change yourself, you can start attracting change in all parts of your life.

The truth is that when you change, you start surrounding yourself with and attracting people who are going through the same process. Those people who do not want to change and want to remain in the same rut will fall by the wayside. Change is not easy and it is not meant to be easy. It is hard and it is tough. However, when you do it, you will grow so much as a person. Many people will not want to change with you. They will be lazy and will disappear from your life.

Vijay Eswaran goes on to explain a very beautiful insight a friend of his had while he and she were sitting by the ocean. They were watching how the waves were washing against some rocks. They noticed how the waves were eroding the rocks. However, it takes hundreds or even thousands of years for the waves to erode the rocks.

The truth is that change is no different. Change happens slowly. You can not go from one to ten overnight. First, you have to go from one to two. Once you do that, going to three is not a big deal anymore. Then you go to four, which is a lot easier now that you are at three. Finally, you will be at nine, at which point going to ten will be no big deal.

Once you make changes in your life, says Vijay Eswaran, you will be able to make bigger changes later on. What seemed like a big change to you a year ago will seem like a small change now. What seems like a big change to you now will seem like nothing in five years from now. All you have to do is make the first step and you will be on your way very soon.
