Oprah says: Change one thing

3 August, 2019

“… the most profound shifts are the ones you make on the inside..”

Sometimes it seems like nothing works the way it should. You  have probably hit that point from time to time, where work is no fun, relationship is a struggle, or you don’t 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.

Read a magazine article you would never typically even consider. Try a new type of restaurant. Take a different route to work. Eat a new type of food.  Listen to some different music.  Change the channel.  Any simple change can shift your perspective, and has the potential to drastically transform your life.

It’s like a ship at sea…if it changes course even one degree, 100 kilometers 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 huge situation, just make one simple shift: one small thing at a time.

And the best part is…it’s all experimentation. If you don’t like your new perspective, you can always go back and figure out a new one, shift the perspective slightly.  Practice something different.  Give it a go with a different thought pattern

What “one-degree” shift will you make?
