“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” George Bernard Shaw
Nelson Rivera, Jr, Change – Motivational Video
“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Motivation Mondays: Change Is Inevitable And Good: Recently, I made a public commitment to offer a motivational quote and message every Monday to help myself and others start our week on an upbeat note. I dreaded doing it but knew that if I truly wanted to change my blogging goals, I had to stand for something. Change is inevitable whether we like it or not. It happens to us in many ways, some subtle and some quite bold, and we might as well embrace it.
We change in physical, emotional, mental and many ways throughout our lifetime. Some of it is difficult and some of it is invigorating. However we wish to view change in our lives, we can grow from it if we adopt the attitude that every form of change is an opportunity to learn and grow. Change is good. The details for Motivation Mondays are below. Join in! The themes for November are:
11/3 – Change
11/10 – Courage
11/17 – Forgiveness
11/24 – Gratitude
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” Steve Jobs;
One thing I know for sure is that every time we make a commitment to do something, there will be some testing to trip us up or make us more determined. I lost electricity last night and this morning and as far as I’m concerned, the focus must remain on the goal. Here’s to a great week ahead. The details are below. Join in!
