Ch Ch Ch Ch Changes

“I still don’t know what I was waiting for …” lyrics and song by David Bowie

Principle 31 encourages us to Embrace Change. 

Jack Canfield reminds us that “change is inevitable “.

What’s changing in your life?

Are you embracing or resisting the change(s)?

What could you do differently, that you’re not doing now, to embrace change?

What ARE you waiting for?

Is it just me?

The answer is probably yes….when things aren’t working we need to take a close look at why they aren’t working and not go into denial or hiding.

Often we just don’t want to accept the bad, uncomfortable, embarrassing or painful situations in our lives.  And we all know they don’t just go away…it takes courage to take action.

Principle #30 shows us how important it is to Face What Isn’t Working and to take action now. Jack Canfield goes again to the concept of making a list od what isn’t working in your life. He says to start with the seven major areas where you would normally set goals:

  • Financial
  • Career or business
  • Family or free time
  • Health and appearance
  • Relationships
  • Personal growth and development
  • Making a difference

What’s not working? How can I improve it? What requests do I need to make? What do I need to do? What actions can I take to get each of the areas that aren’t working to work the way I’d like it to?

See you over on the working side……

Letting Go…

Principle #29 is all about how hanging on to past hurts and resentments will keep you from moving into a joyous future.

Nelson Mandela is known to have said “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies”. 

Jack Canfield offers Six Steps to Forgiveness 

  1. Acknowledge your anger and resentments.
  2. Acknowledge the hurt and pain it created.
  3. Acknowledge the fears and self-doubts that it created
  4. Acknowledge any part you may have played in letting the behavior or the event occur or letting it continue.
  5. Acknowledge what you were wanting that you didn’t get, and then put yourself in the other person’s shoes and attempt to understand where he or she was coming from at the time, and what needs they were trying to meet—- however inelegantly—by their behavior.
  6. Let go and forgive the person.

Let go and live a lighter life……
