For Personal Growth, Change One Thing

Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. If you’re a human, you have probably hit that point where work is no fun, being in a relationship is a struggle and you don’t even feel comfortable in your body.

At times like these, changing your life can seem overwhelming. There’s so much to do…where do you even start?

It’s quite simple, really…just change ONE thing.

To create relationship changes –

Stop saying something you always say.

Start saying something you never say.

Stop doing something you always do.

Stop doing start doing something you never do.

Read a magazine article you would never typically even consider. Try a new type of restaurant. Take a different route to work.  Any change that you make becomes a change in your environment and can stimulate changes in your partner. If you no longer let them do something out of habit, maybe they’ll do something new. If you open up new possibilities for them to consider, perhaps they will be eager to try.  Maybe making changes will create an environment for you to have a new perspective which then opens up new opportunities.

Any simple change of scenery can shift your perspective and has the potential to drastically transform your life.

It’s like a ship at sea…if it changes course even one degree, 100 miles later it’s in completely new waters.

Of course, the most profound shifts are the ones you make on the inside. Annoyance can easily be turned into fascination. Frustration can be flipped to become gratitude. Even anger can be transformed if you simply turn it into a song.

You don’t have to tackle the whole enchilada, just make one simple shift.

And the best part is…it’s all experimentation. If you don’t like your new perspective, you can always go back to your old one.

What “one-degree” shift can YOU make TODAY?
