Growth is an act of grace bestowed by the evolutionary impulse that animates and enlivens all of life. The evolutionary impulse is an optimizing force. We attract this grace by creating favorable conditions to our growth.
You can change your life now, in an instant. Maybe not forever. You are certain to fall back into the conditioning again at some point. But you can always, in any moment, connect with stillness and presence. Each time you do this, you are de-conditioning the ego.
