Change Starts with You


change begin with meIf you want to change your life, you must make changes yourself in some way.
If you want to change your career, you are the person who needs to make the change.
If you want to change your relationship status, you must be the one to be determined to do so.
If you want to change your health and the shape of your body, you need to make the needed changes to be successful.
Whatever it is that you want to change, whether it is yourself, your situations, or the world, this change starts with you first.
If you want to make a small or drastic change, you may need to change one, some or all of the following:
  • Beliefs
  • Habits
  • Thought patterns
  • Exercise routine
  • Diet
  • The way you eat your food
  • Actions
  • The time you wake in the morning
  • The time you go to sleep at night
  • The way you interact with others
  • Your reactions
  • The words your use
  • The way you view your life
  • The way you look at other people
  • How you hug
  • How you kiss
  • How you love
  • How you show you care
  • The way you dress
  • How you shake a hand
  • The way you talk to your children
  • The way you play
  • ______________
If you were to change just one of these, you would experience a shift in your life. I guarantee you would experience a change in your life-whether it would be minimal or huge-there would be a change.
Here is a great song from Jake Owen about how change starts with him. Sing along with the lyrics below:

I had a one night stand with my best friends baby sister
And to this day he still won’t speak to me
I pawned my grandpa’s old guitar in collage
For a case of beer and a tank of gasoline
I took a swing at my old man one Christmas
I never dreamed that it would be his last
I wish mom had rung my neck
When she caught me with those cigarettes
Which reminds me, I’m down to my last pack

If I had a dime
For half the things I did
That didn’t make no sense at all
I’d be living a little higher on the hog
If only I’d have known
That later on down the road
I’d look back and not like what I see
I’d have changed a lot of things
Startin’ with me

I called my brother everything I could think of
The night he wouldn’t bail me out of jail
I lost a job most folks ‘round here would die for
By laying out all night and raising hell
And I let a woman that I love slip through my fingers
Chalk another dumb move up to my foolish pride
I wasn’t there standin’ by the bed
When the preacher bowed his head
With the family, the day my grandma died

If I had a dime
For half the things I did
That didn’t make no sense at all
I’d be living a little higher on the hog
If only I’d have known
That later on down the road
I’d look back and not like what I see
I’d have changed a lot of things
Startin’ with me

If only I’d have known
That later on down the road
I’d look back and not like what I see
Whoa, I’d have changed a lot of things
Startin’ with me
Startin’ with me
