Just Change One Thing

change one thing

 Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. If you’re a human being, you have probably experienced that place where work is no fun, relationship is a struggle or 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.

Happiness Principle #8 says, Stimulate Your Development.  Change even a tiny thing in your environment and you will stimulate your entire system — thinking, feeling, reacting.

Read a magazine article you would never typically even consider. Try a new type of restaurant — or a new food. Take a different route to work. Hang out with some people you don’t normally converse.  Any simple change of scenery can shift your perspective, and has the potential to drastically transform your life.

You’re like a ship at sea…if you change course even one degree, 100 miles later you’ll be 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?
