"Be changed and the world around you begins to change."
~Dr. Gerald Epstein
When you want change in some part of your life, change how you act and react. This works for two reasons. First, it models the change you want to see in the world or those around you. Second, it changes YOUR behavior and attitude, and clears the way for others to change as well.
This week: First, identify a change you'd like to see in some person or area in your life. Next, change your reaction to them. If you have been quietly accepting their bad behavior, change that approach and speak out. If you have been reacting negatively, change your approach to something more positive. Finally, notice what happens. When you change your behavior or attitudes, it opens the door for changes in others. The changes may be small at first, but you can always build on them.
