My good friend A. was talking about how 2011 would be a big year of change for her. If you’re like me, change is scary. I take comfort in the predictable. I enjoy order and routine. I am not spontaneous — sudden changes in my plans don’t invigorate me, they annoy me.
But I told her that change is good. I meant it, too. It is. If we’re lucky, 2011 will be a year of change for all of us.
Everything you now do is something you have chosen to do. Some people don’t want to believe that. But if you’re over age twenty-one, your life is what you’re making of it. To change your life, you need to change your priorities.
– John C. Maxwell
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
– M. Scott Peck
To change one’s life, start immediately, do it flamboyantly, no exceptions.
– William James
