2 questions for change.
I've heard it said that change most often comes through crisis.
Either crisis of conscience or crisis of circumstance. Either way pain is involved.
I admit that I hate to believe that, but I am pretty sure it is true. "One of the most important lessons in life is to embrace difficulties and learn from them instead of trying to get them fixed as soon as possible."
-Dr. Samuel Chand
Reading John Maxwell's "Talent is Never Enough" I learned a great growth tool. Ian Harvey, CEO of London-based BTG asks his inner circle to tell him:
Two things he should stop doing.
Two things he should keep doing.
Two things he should start doing.
Self deception is par for the course when it comes to evaluating ourselves.
Ask those questions to some of your inner circle. Avoid a bunch of "yes" people that want to flatter you. Find people who love you enough to be honest with you.
Now that might just help you have the clarity you need for some positive change. After all, the only alternative is insanity...doing the same things over and over looking for a different result!

How many people do you have in your life that can be truly honest with you? Who are they? When was the last time you took some time to grow in your self awareness related to your strengths and weaknesses?
