One Thing

One Thing.

Change ONE THING. To change your life, you’re going to need to do something different. You’re going to need to take a different action, think a different thought, do something different than what you’re doing right now.

It almost doesn’t matter WHAT you do, just change one thing. If you need to lose weight, what’s ONE THING that you can do towards that end, towards that goal?

When I’m looking at changing my life, I get to change on a number of levels. So, let’s go with the example of losing weight. Here’s what I’d look at:

On the physical level, of course I could exercise. But if I haven’t been, I’m probably not going to start a full exercise program tomorrow. But what can I do?

Change ONE THING. The one thing has to be unique to and for you. I could decrease my ice cream intake, my soda intake, I could increase the amount that I walk around the block. Right there I’ve listed three things.

Note that I’m not saying decrease food intake, I’m said I could decrease one specific item of food. I also can increase something, but here, I’m just suggesting one thing. Be specific with the one thing.

To make a change in your life, start with one thing. Keep it simple. Increase one thing, or decrease one thing. Maybe asking someone for help is that one thing (that can be a really good thing).
