Changing the World
Reykjavik Iceland. 11 December 2014. (Tonight is the first day of Christmas here)
We are a few weeks before the end of the year. What things remain undone on your 2014 New Years Resolution list? I do not so much make New Years Resolutions as REVOLUTION. In light of the recently released torture report there are certainly things that need to be changed.
The challenge of the day is: What are you doing today to change YOUR world? Notice I did not write THE world I said YOUR world. It is the only world you have the power to change on a daily basis. Your world is the people, places, and situations within your physical and virtual reach, that which you have the power to control. Too often we allow outside influences change our world. Re-reading The Chimp Paradox by Steve Peters has made me think about this. We are in command of our own ships, so take the wheel and start changing what you can change now. Don’t wait! Never underestimate the power you have within you to lead change.
Heed the advice of Gandhi “ Be the change you want to see in the world.” Change is uncomfortable and not easy but it is constant so take charge and be proactive and lead the change. Start now – Take Action – Small steps lead to bigger steps and bigger steps lead to profound change.
Change yourself and then you can change others. Soon by changing YOUR world you will have a chance to change THE world.
What are your New Years REVOLUTIONS? Are you willing to make a change?
