"You are the way you are because that's the way you want to be. If you really wanted to be any different, you would be in the process of changing right now."
We all have the ability to change in ways that will make our lives work better for us--to be happier, more successful, more satisfied with our lives. But the most important thing to do is to DECIDE to change. Once that happens, you can set into motion ways to change what isn't working.
This week: Think about how your life is right now. What isn't working for you? What would make your life more satisfying? Make sure you are thinking about YOUR life, and not someone else's. You don't have the ability to make someone else behave differently--you can only change yourself. DECIDE to change some area of your life during 2010. Really commit yourself to making this change. Make sure what you decide to change is something that is really compelling for you. Otherwise you won't make the change. Now decide what steps you will need to take to make those changes. Congratulations! You have just laid out a plan for making a change that is important to you!
