What is the one thing every person on this planet has in common?

If you said “change” you are right.

I know some of you are saying, my life is boring, nothing ever changes. Think again.

We are not the same from one day to the next. Change can be so subtle as to go unnoticed.

Sometimes outside forces make change mandatory. Are you paying the same for food, gas and housing than you did a year or two ago?

Are your relationships exactly the same as they were last year?

What experiences have you been through and what have you learned in the past year?

Change is the one constant in our lives. Everyone is navigating change whether it is change we initiated or change that occurred through outside forces.

One reason people are hesitant to embrace change is that it isn’t familiar. It is untrodden ground.

In embracing change, we suspend our negativity and become full of gratitude. This shift in perspective helps us open up to new ideas and ways of doing things. Instead of grumbling that this isn’t what we are used to (an example of noxious negativity), we jump into, “How am I going to navigate this?”

Pathologically Positive people start looking for solutions. And as we navigate change we create a new narrative. We KNOW we can handle change because we have done so in the past.

Better yet, you can create positive change in your life.

Try my BB8 (Better By 8:00) challenge. Do something before 8:00 tonight to make your life better. Think small or big. Make a phone call, fix that one thing that has been bothering you, express gratitude to someone. The ideas are endless. 

YOU have the power to change your life for the better.
