Motivating and communicating

Keep growing by being able to change


Every day presents a new opportunity. Oftentimes we're unable to seize the moment because we're mired in old habits, doing the same thing over and over again.

Some people believe that they can't change and say, "That's just the way I am." You can change. You can start now. It could change your life today and you don't have to wait for July 1.

We tend to stay in routines, our comfort zones, regardless of how useful the routine is. Experiences have shown that the more we do something, the more the habit grows and the more difficult it is to change. But we can change. We can form new habits that are better for us, that would help us grow. Sure change is hard, but change is life.

Ask yourself, if I change the way I do something will I be an entirely different person or will I be just interacting differently?

Remember, no one is perfect. Be bold enough to step up to what you want to do, want to be, and do it now.  Soon, the new way will be the old way.
