Change is life. And life is change.
If we are not changing, then something else is happening in our lives.
Change is not easy. But without change, we are not going to grow.
If you really want to grow, to expand yourself,
then enjoy these three change lessons from Saul Alinsky.
"Change means movement.
"Change means movement. Movement means friction.
Only in the frictionless vacuum, of a nonexistent
abstract world can movement or change occur
without the abrasive friction of conflict."- Saul Alinsky
We need a bridge
"Men don't like to step abruptly out of the security
of familiar experience: they need a bridge to cross
from their own experience to a new day."- Saul Alinsky
We must work together
"Change comes from power, and power comes from organization.
In order to act, people must get together."- Saul Alinsky
You can live a positive life. Because it is not about material things. It is not about college degrees. It is not about where you live, or what you do for a living. It is not. It is more than that.
A positive life doesn't mean a problem-free life. People living positive lives have problems, but they deal with their problems better than the rest of us. They know what to worry about. They also know what not to worry about. They worry less, but focus more.
When it comes to living a positive life, it is all about living in the moment. It is all about finding love in what you are doing. It is all about finding love in the little things. It is all about enjoying what you have. It is all about focusing on what you have, not on what you do not have. It is all about turning problems into opportunities. It is all about using what you have to get what you do not have. It is all about keeping a positive outlook in the face of problems.
When you are down, when you are not happy, instead of beating yourself up, try to think of things that make you feel good about yourself. They are out there. But to attact positive things into your life, you must think positive thoughts.
