Only you can change

“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” -- Albert Einstein

We all wish it were better.

More of this.

Less of that.

A more peaceful future.

But in the end, no matter how much we expect others to make our lives a better place, the only person who can effect real change is us.

Just us. No one else.

And before you go running for another book, programme or course to help reshape your life, my advice is to look at the areas of your life that you wish were better i.e. they are not working, write one thing down in each, and you will have something very concrete to work on.

This exhortation is not a ‘you can do better’ example, but to challenge you to stop running away from the few things that if brought to book would make the biggest difference in your life.

[The quote above is one, no doubt, you’ve seen many times but ask yourself, what have you done in the last 24 hours to bring about change that would enable you to look in the mirror with a sense of renewed optimism and not resigned acceptance? If my experience is anything to go by, just rising 10 minutes earlier each day and writing or podcasting has made a profound difference in my life. No great shakes I know but in doing this it’s given me the self-belief in so many other areas of my life.]
