Are You Beginning 2014 With Intention And Commitment?

by Dr. Rick Kirschner on January 6, 2014

Super Start!Here at The Art Of Change Skills For Life, we are all about making a difference, having an impact, and living lives of service to a better future.

Change is inevitable, but progress is not.  You make the difference.  The biggest changes that ever have happened in this world were the result of people like yourself who showed up, stepped up, and took small steps forward towards an outcome they deemed worthy of their energy and time.   To master the art of change skills for life, you have to begin somewhere.

And in this case, we begin this new year with the most pressing question:  What do you want to change? Not what do you wish was different (We all wish some things were different, and wishing does not change them), or that someone else would do something about (If you wait for someone else’s hands, you may fall down!)

No.  The question, with the emphasis placed where it truly belongs in change work, is this:  What do YOU want to change?  What are you willing to do something about, to identify and take a small step forward and then another one after that?

Meaningful change in our own lives usually requires quite a bit of commitment.   Helping others to change requires even more.   You’re going to have to be able to count on yourself, so that when the going gets tough, you can keep going.  And you’ll be setting an example to the people around you of what it takes.

Your ability to give and keep your word with yourself is paramount to your success and happiness in life.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year and a successful, productive and fulfilling 2014!
