Today’s word is a word that is near and dear to me. I have quoted this a lot over the years. The word is change. A good friend of mine Tom Noland sent this quote back to me after I sent it to him probably 15 or 20 years ago.
Here it is, a Howieism, my own quote of the day, “Change stimulates growth.” I know that I keep talking about these four buses. The career bus for example, How many people are miserable with what they do every day? There is no worse feeling in the world than getting out of bed and going someplace you don’t want to be. You got to make a change.
Then there’s the financial bus. How many of us deal with financial issues? If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
Additionally, there is health. We all know we have things to work on with our health. Why is it so hard to change a diet, an exercise regime, a mental regime? Whatever it is. Change it, do something different.
Then that old relationship. You know what’s not working in a relationship. It’s not going to change unless you change and you cannot change other people. That’s the most frustrating thing.
Remember, “You can’t change what’s going on around you until you start to change what’s going on within you.” My best buddy David has said to me many times, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and hoping for a different outcome.” You can’t just hope you’ve got to change.
If you are willing to change your career can change, your finances can change, your health can change and your relationships can change.
