“You must be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
With so much destruction and negativity around us, Mahatma Gandhi’s words are inspirational and a reminder that in order to affect change, we must first begin with change in ourselves. We can start the process by putting our focus on making more conscious or mindful choices with a level of awareness to the consequences our actions may generate.
In other words, when we find ourselves in a state of mind that includes excessive complaining about our environment, our jobs, the people we work with, or even those in our inner circle, we must analyze what choices we are making to help create these contaminating experiences. If for example, we are so distraught that we are unable to appreciate or experience some level of value or gratitude, we can ask ourselves, what we did to attract these unfavorable situations or non-supportive people into our lives. In short, if we are unhappy and want to see changes made, we can take responsibility and assess the part we played to enable these people or situations that contribute to stressful conditions, then deliberately change our strategy to produce different outcomes.
In the meantime, I will be engaging in a different kind of stress relief strategy; one that includes taking a little time off for spring break. I will be back soon to share more valuable information on organizational management as well as make a few announcements about some exciting projects on the horizon.
Until then … stay organized, enjoy the magnificence of this season, and make the changes you need to support your passions. See ya’ soon!
