The Power of Change

Raise your hand if you like change.

Most people really don’t like change. At all.

But if we’re unhappy with the current state, then not seeking change is a problem.

What’s that age-old definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Here’s the easiest way I know of to get some change happening, in a few painless, productive steps . . .

1. Recognize that change is needed.

Until you take a moment to see where you are and realize you’re not in a place you want to be, nothing can move forward. It’s like looking for that new restaurant in your GPS without being able to enter where you are right now.

2. Take action.

Once you look up to see that you’re not in a good place, whether that involves how you spend your working hours, how much time you have for your family, or how much you’re neglecting your own wants and needs, the next step is movement.

Moving forward can start with a turtle step. It can start with gathering information on what your options are.

3. Keep moving forward.

Like most sharks that have to keep swimming in order to breathe, you need to keep moving forward to facilitate change.

Once you’ve figured out what can be done, it’s time to take the plunge and go for it.

4. Be actively engaged in the process.

Remember those boring biochem lectures that used to lull you to sleep?

Yeah. Not actively engaging, huh?

Map out daily concrete steps to keep yourself moving in the right direction.

5. Reward yourself.

When you’ve gone out on a limb and signed up for a class or hired a coach, give yourself a big “Hi five!” It takes guts and gumption to step outside your comfort zone to get where you want to go.

You can step out of the miserable “woe is me” crowd and into the “I’m working on that” zone.

Ready to make a change?

Now’s the perfect time.

I’ve just opened up two more slots for private coaching clients. And we’re forming a Gold Mastermind Group (by application only) for those who prefer group dynamics.

These options will go quickly. So if change is what you need, email my team at and start moving forward. You’ve got this.
