I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

You can only change yourself

on April 19, 2013

Did you know that  you can’t change anyone but yourself?   We think we can, but we can’t.

This a hard lesson that most of us have to learn the hard way.   We spend a large part of our life trying to change other people.  We try to change our husband, our wife, our children, our friends.

“When my husband/wife changes, I will be happy”.  

“When my children change,  things will be easier”. 

“When my boss changes, my life will be better”.

Wrong!  When YOU change, your life will be better.  In reality, changes need to be made within ourselves.   If we make positive changes ourselves, we can then have a positive influence on Retiredother people, but we can’t change them.  This is something that they have to want to do themselves.

Instead of frustrating yourself trying to change someone in your life, work on making some positive changes yourself and you will likely have a happier and more peaceful life.

If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.  ~Mary Engelbreit

When you are through changing, you are through.  ~Bruce Barton

If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies.  ~Author Unknown
