Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should.  You have probably hit that point in your life where work was no fun, a relationship was a struggle, or you didn’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.

Eliminate one unhealthy food from your diet.  Do an unselfish act of kindness for a loved one with no expectation of anything in return.  Find three things about your job you can be grateful for.  Take a different route to work. Any simple change has the potential to drastically change your perspective and 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.

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-shift” can YOU make TODAY?
