Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind.
To the fearful, it is threatening because it means that things may get worse.
To the hopeful, it is encouraging because things may get better.
To the confident, it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

This Week´s Inspiration
The Gift of Dramatic Change!


To undergo transformation, transition, or substitution; to make different in some particular way; to make radically different; to give a different position, course, or direction; to replace with another; to undergo a modification of: to become different; to pass from one phase to another

What is this thing called change?

Is it a positive or a negative condition? I guess that depends.

Let’s be clear: Change is part of the human condition.
Without change, how would we progress, discover, or develop?

Simply, we would not. Change is paramount to any improvements we seek.

Two old sayings apply here.

  • If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.
  • The definition of Insanity is continuing to do the same things over and over, expecting different results.

But many individuals want their situation to be different—without implementing any changes.

I recently articulated my intentions for dramatic improvements—personally and at CRG. (I will share the details at another time.)

Quite frankly, in a short period of time, I’ve had enough change!

Can a person experience dramatic improvements without dramatic changes?


We can fool ourselves that convenient minor adjustments will result in breathtaking transformations.

They will not.

My intention of extraordinary growth is in conflict with my desire for little or no change. How many people are experiencing that same thinking?

I suggest that slow and steady does not win the race or achieve the revolutionary results we want. Given our culture for immediate gratification, slow is the kiss of death. But that does not mean fast is always better.

Where do we find balance and accept the constant condition of change?

No matter the situation we want to improve, there is a level of change that will create the results we desire. That’s the physical Law of Momentum. Without enough force behind it, the energy we expend is absorbed back into the status quo and the new condition is not realized.

Then, because we think our efforts did not work, we often stop trying, when in fact we just did not apply enough change to create a new condition.

Let me cite a few examples.

  • You want to lose weight but don’t want to change your lifestyle. You start walking 1 day a week for 30 minutes and wonder why your weight is not reducing.
  • Your child is struggling in a subject at school so you hire a tutor for 15 minutes a week. The grades do not improve.
  • You want to develop a better relationship with your significant other so you go out for dinner once a month. The relationship does not improve.
  • You want to increase your sales numbers so you make one more sales call per day. Sales stay the same.
  • The local sports team is doing poorly so they bring in a new player. The team doesn’t win any more games than it did before they hired the star.

What do all those examples have in common?

The Law of Momentum was at work. Too little effort was applied to make a real difference.

If you are not getting the change you seek in your life, you are not making enough alterations.

Dramatic improvements require dramatic change.

I’m sorry. I wish there was another way, but there isn’t. I have many personal examples to prove that.

Change for change’s sake has little value.

The necessary level of modification will be unique to every person and situation, but there is a level that will cause the Law of Momentum to kick in for you.

It’s very important to understand that each person responds to change in a different way.

  • Some of this can be attributed to your personal style and your level of self-worth and confidence.
  • Your level of wellness and health can determine your ability to handle various levels of change.
  • When you are clear about your direction and purpose, that significantly increases your ability to implement and be successful in the change process.

The following CRG assessments and resources will provide you with insights and guidelines to implement change with confidence.

This Week´s Action Steps

The Gift of Dramatic Change!

  1. Change is constant. It cannot be avoided.
  1. You cannot achieve dramatic improvements without dramatic changes.
  1. If you implement changes that did not result in your desired results, ask yourself two questions.
    • Was I doing the correct activities to create the desired change? If not, what are the right actions? List them now.
    • If you were doing the correct activities, were you doing enough to achieve the change?
  1. Change works with the physical Law of Momentum. Unless there is enough momentum to alter an outcome or direction, the status quo will prevail.
  1. The correct measure of activity necessary to create your desired change is unique to every situation. The fact remains that expecting something different while you maintain the status quo is the definition of insanity.
  1. It’s very important to appreciate that each of us reacts to change in a different way. To understand your natural predisposition to change, please complete the Personal Style Indicator. Even though dramatic change requires extraordinary actions, your natural ability to handle change should be taken into consideration.
  1. Other contributing factors that affect your response to change are your confidence, health, and your clarity of direction. For this, please complete the Self-Worth Inventory, Stress Indicator and Health Planner, and the Values Preference Indicator. And My Source EXPERIENCE Journal.
  1. As we saw in the opening quote, change—as experienced by the confident individual—is seen as an inspiring event that can make things better.
  1. Follow the above steps and realize the changes you seek.

Until next time, keep Living On Purpose!.
