What would you like to change?

If you could change one thing in your life -- right now -- what would you change? ...

... Would it be to get yourself physically fitter? Quit smoking? Or perhaps find a more fulfilling job? Maybe learn a new skill? Work on relationships? Reduce stress in your life?

I'm sure this is not the first time that you have ever thought about what you'd love to change... but take it one step further -- what is stopping you from making the change? What things/obstacles/circumstances do you see as preventing you?

Seriously think about what it is you would like to change in your life. Write it out in detail, what it looks like, feels like, and how different your life would be if that change happened now.
Then, write out all the reasons why you can't make that change become a reality... in other words, what is stopping you from instigating change in your life. Write out all the reasons, all the excuses (and of course they are extremely valid) why you cannot begin to move towards the change that you desire...

Then look at your list of reasons/excuses... and consider this possibility: the one thing you need to change is... your thinking.

Many self-development speakers and authors, including James Allen believe "let a person radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life." (James Allen, As a Man Thinketh).

I'll leave you with another quote from James Allen "All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts."

If you would like to know more... you can send an e-mail to or leave a post on here. I would like to hear your thoughts.

Take care
