"My father instilled in me that if you don't see things happening the way you want them to, you get out there and make them happen."
~ Susan Powter
Many people are good at recognizing when things are not going the way they would like. They identify all the things that are wrong--in politics, in business, in the economy, in their relationships, in their life. But too few take action and responsibility for making changes. If you find yourself complaining about things not happening the way you want them to, get out there and make them happen.
This week: Identify something that is not going the way you would like, one specific thing. Now, think about what change you would like to see. What could YOU personally do to help make that change? What action could you take? Brainstorm solutions and write down your ideas. Then go back and pick ONE thing you can do this week to begin to change the situation. Although you might think that your action "won't count," recognize that if everybody took some small action, there would begin to be a solution. Do something, just for this week.
