September is the beginning of spring and the changes that blossom from it. Spring is a true re-constructionist, it brings change, new life, new hope and new opportunity.
And like spring, change is the constant, the signal for rebirth.
Change your thoughts and you change your world – Norman Vincent Peale
And changed we did!
Change has a considerable psychological impact on the mind. To the pessimist it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the optimist it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.
Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Even for pessimists there is a certain relief in change, even if it means just shifting your position, and get numb in a new place! An optimist is the human personification of spring, someone who keeps her face to the sunshine so she cannot see the shadow.
Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation – Robert F. Kennedy
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing herself. It is easy to change the world – change yourself. They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself. Only you can change your life – no one can do it for you. And for those that hate change, remember it is the only thing that has brought progress.
Turbulence is life force. It is opportunity. Love turbulence and use it for change.
