Lets face it. The world is changing and growing every second of every minute of everyday. Every decision we make affects someone else in some way, whether we realize it or not. The choice between buying a local, organic apple from the farmers market, or or buying an apple that was shipped across the country in huge gas-consuming trucks from government subsidized apple orchards in Washington from the grocery store for a $0.65 savings, does affect more than just you. It does. If you can’t see the difference, please stop reading this. Its not for you. For everyone else, let’s begin.
1. Start Small
How many times have you joined the gym, went “hard” at it for 2 months, only to end up giving up entirely? Why rush the process of aging beautifully with unneccesary cosmetic operations? Have you ever tried decorating your entire house at once, just to sit down because you “don’t know where to start”? Little changes lead to LARGE impacts. Take daily walks to lose weight. Keep young by drinking more water and taking a daily multivitamin.Hang one picture at a time and focus on your favorite room. By Starting small, you’ll catch the “bug” of being motivated and positive (more on positive feedback cycles later).
The person you are took years to mold and create. Make little changes to who you want to become; more fit? more educated? more love? What can you do today (or tomorrow, since you’re “so busy”) to initiate a change in your life, whether it be within yourself, your friendships, coworkers, or lover? Smiling more, being focused, and making conscious decisions are VERY easy (and free!!) ways to take that first step forward. Decide whats most important to you, and focus your love and energy there. We cannot change the our world in one day, but if we start small, it will lead to a beautiful grand impact.
Stay tuned for Part II & III on “How To: Change the World in 3 Easy Steps” later this week…Start small even with blog posts! A great blog can take days of clever thinking, and months of imagination and creativity to get an audience to take notice. Plus, if its that easy, couldn’t we all change the world? Possibly. Definitely. Fo-sho.
