HASRAT untuk BERUBAH

Oleh: Budi Harold Rarumangkay

SADAR atau tidak, suka atau tidak, semua yang ada di muka bumi ini selalu berubah. Hukum alam dalam dunia ini serba berubah dan tidak ada yang kekal, kecuali perubahan itu sendiri. Bahkan dalam kitab suci telah disebutkan tentang perubahan : Al-Quran dalam QS A—Ra’ad 13:11 dan Injil Alkitab Roma 12 :2. Intinya, jika ingin suatu kehidupan yang lebih berkualitas, maka kita harus melakukan perubahan.

Nah, bagaimana melakukan perubahan? Itu di awali dari diri sendiri. Sebab, tidak mungkin kita melakukan suatu perubahan besar jika kita sendiri tidak mau berubah. Untuk mendapatkan hasil yang besar, harus dimulai dengan perbuatan yang kecil. Untuk mencapai langkah seribu itu diawali dengan langkah pertama.

Namun pada kenyataannya, banyak orang tidak mau melakukan perubahan. Mereka terlena, dan merasa puas diri, mereka tidak mau meninggalkan “zona kenyamanan”. Padahal jika ingin sukses maka kita harus berubah. Sebab semua orang sukses di muka bumi ini karena mereka ingin berubah. Jangan tunggu kita sudah terkapar dan tidak berdaya baru mau melakukan perubahan. Lakukan perubahan disaat kita sedang merasa nyaman.

Saat ditanya bagaimana dia menaklukan dunia, Alexander Agung menjawab;” Dengan tidak menunda segala sesuatu, lakukan segalanya sesegera mungkin”. Hidup ini singkat, perjalanan waktu terus berputar. Karenanya, jangan biarkan waktu berlalu tanpa makna. Hidup terlalu berarti untuk disia-siakan.

Perubahan harus diawali dengan niat dan keinginan yang kuat. Hasrat yang menggebu, menggelora, dan begitu mendesak. Lantas apa kaitannya dengan kehidupan kita? Kaitannya adalah, jika kita tidak mau melakukan perubahan, maka kehidupan kita hanya dari itu ke itu saja. Coba renungkan, kehidupan kita dalam kurun waktu Lima tahun terakhir ini. Sudahkah kita mencapai puncak kehidupan? Sudahkah kita membahagiakan orang-orang yang kita cintai? (terutama kedua orang tua dan keluarga), Berapa banyak penghasilan kita? Berapa banyak teman kita yang baru? Atau dari dulu itu-itu saja? Atau sudahkah kita menunaikan ibadah? (Naik Haji bagi umat Islam atau ke Jerusalem dan ke Lourdes bagi umat Kristen).

Untuk berubah kita harus semangat. Sebab dengan semangat akan membuat seseorang tetap”hidup”. Dengan bersemangat akan melahirkan ide-ide brillian. Jika ingin sukses harus semangat. Semangatlah yang membuat perbaikan dalam hidup ini secara perlahan-lahan. Kemajuan dibuat satu langkah demi satu langkah. Kemajuan diraih secara tahap demi tahap. Tetapkan langkah, tetapkan fokus dan tujuan dengan memiliki jiwa daya saing yang kuat.

Tentang HASRAT untuk BERUBAH, ada sebuah untaian kata yang sangat indah yang terukir pada sebuah makam di Westminster Abbey, Inggris, 1100 M. untaian kata-kata itu berbunyi:

Ketika aku masih muda dan bebas berkhayal, aku bermimpi ingin mengubah dunia. Seiring dengan bertambahnya usia dan kearifanku, kudapati bahwa dunia tidak kunjung berubah. Maka, cita-cita itupun agak kupersempit, lalu kuputuskan untuk hanya mengubah negeriku. Namun tampaknya, hasrat itupun tiada hasil. Ketika usiaku semakin senja, dengan semangatku yang masih tersisa, kuputuskan untuk mengubah keluargaku, orang-orang yang paling dekat denganku. Tetapi celakanya, merekapun tidak mau diubah. Dan kini, sementara aku berbaring saat ajal menjelang, tiba-tiba kusadari: Andaikan yang pertama-tama kuubah adalah diriku, maka dengan menjadikan diriku sebagai teladan, mungkin aku bisa mengubah keluargaku. Lalu berkat inspirasi dan dorongan mereka, bisa jadi akupun mampu memperbaiki negeriku. Kemudian siapa tahu, aku bahkan bisa mengubah dunia .. (***)
