Change One Thing

Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. If you’re an unhappy employee, you may have hit that point where work is no fun, relationship with co-workers is a struggle and you dread going into the office day after day.

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

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

Attend an event where you can surround yourself with people who are doing what you want to do. Read an article, a novel, a biography you wouldn’t typically even consider – you might be inspired. Talk to a friend who you consider successful – you might gather useful tips and insights. Take a different route to places that you usually go – you might come across something you’ve never noticed or an unexpected opportunity. 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. And above all, turn these feelings into powerful actions other than reactions.

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 shift again.

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