Change

It was Albert Einstein who defined insanity as, “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Most of us are familiar with that quote and we readily attest to the wisdom of the statement but when we stop to think about the adjustments we need to make in our lives, well, we get sidetracked. Why? Well… we’re busy; we just have too much going on right now. And besides, it’s just not a good time right now because…

What are you dissatisfied with in your life? What would you love to change? What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

I believe all of us were created with specific abilities or “gifts” that have been given to us for the greater good. Often, however, those gifts lie dormant within us because we have never been encouraged to uncover them. Some of us have uncovered the gift but we have never taken the time to discipline the gift so we can get the maximum effectiveness out of it. The writer of the Proverbs rightly noted that, “Whoever walks with the wise will become wise; whoever walks with fools will suffer harm” (Proverbs 13:20). The idea is that those who want to live their life for maximum effectiveness need develop relationships that will take them to the next level of skill. I have heard it said that five years from now you will be the same person you are now except for the people you meet and the books you read. In other words, you are only going to experience meaningful change in your life based on exposure to new ideas and new influences. So what are you doing to facilitate that exposure?
