Chances, Choices and Changes

Many people have written their own version of the Three C’s. Three words that make a difference in their career, their relationships, their happiness.  For me, I also have Three C’s have impacted my life.

Chances

Like many people I have had a lot of chances to try something different. Many chances I never followed through with, for different reasons. I was not interested, it was too far away, I had no confidence to give it a go. There were many other excuses that I came up with at the time.

Chances that interested me were given serious thought, some I was talked out of by family or friends. Some of these I regretted later in life. The ones that I took hold of and worked with gave me great satisfaction. I learned that unless we are willing to take a chance, nothing happens and we cannot move on or grow to our fullest potential.

Choices

We continually make choices in everything we do, what we wear, what we eat just to name a few.  We all have freedom of choice our choices make us the person we are and will lead us to be the person we will become.

Choices come with consequences; it is up to us to make a choice to take a chance if we want our lives to improve. The choice is always ours to make, is up to us.  When we procrastinate, we can become our worst enemy.

Changes

Many wait for the changes around them to improve before they decide to make changes in their own life. It is important that we fully understand what change we want to make for our future and focus on the change.

Change can bring pressure to our life, but if we want to grow, we need to change. This is when our attitude to life plays a big part, because our attitude also has to change.

My daughter is a Beauty Therapist and had her own salon. As I had time on my hands, I often visited the salon and helped out making tea or coffee for the clients. Occasionally one of the clients would ask me to do a treatment on them as I was older, of course, I would explain that I was not qualified.

My daughter suggested that I should train and become a beauty therapist. The choice was mine to make.

At that time in my life, I was in my mid-forties. To do this, I would have to attend a Beauty College five days a week for twelve months as well as a technical college at night to study human anatomy.  It had been a long time since I’d studied, and then there were the hands-on treatments with willing clients.

While it was an opportunity to learn something new, there was also the negative thought that I might not pass, or not be good enough. Finally, there was a considerable cost involved. Despite the risks, I decided to take the chance.

For the next year, I worked and studied hard. At the end of it,  I became a Beauty Therapist and a Masseuse, and my life changed for the better.

I took a chance, and I made a choice which changed my life.  It was a fulfilling decision I was able to make a difference in the lives of many others.

Chances, Choices and Changes, these are my three ’C’s that I believe can make a difference in your life too.
