Another Great Quote…

If YOU will change, EVERYTHING will change for you…
– Jim Rohn

I love that quote.  First of all, it reminds me that I can’t sit and wait for the world around me to change first – I have to be the one to change my life.  I can’t wait for my friends, my family, my boss, the government, my doctor or anyone else to make it better – I have to do it.  If I want something different today than yesterday, I have to DO something differently…

I have to THINK differently.

I have to TALK differently.

I have to ACT differently.

I have to DECIDE differently.

If I don’t, then today will be much like yesterday…
This quote also reminds me that I have much more control over my life than I sometimes give credit.  Life is a gift (althought I know it’s hard sometimes).  I need to ask myself each morning, “What am I going to do with this gift today?”  Asking that question alone can change your life…

So, with that in mind, what are you going to do with your gift today?

  1. So true, Charlie. It’s easy to let life snowball and think we no longer have control.

  2. Charlie,
    Great Posting!

    I think a great way to use your “gift” is to
    think positive thoughts. I realize that this
    day and time, its hard sometimes, but I
    think its important to see the positive aspects
    of any situation. This will make your day
    go a lot better!

  3. Thank you for bringing these thoughts back to the front of my mind. It’s so easy to get bogged down in the little day-to-day “wah wah’s”. Then they seem to build upon each other and before you know it, you’re just dealing with a majorly bad attitude. Thanks for these powerful words.
