If you want things to be different in your life or your work, it is easy
to look around you and see all the things that are getting in your
way. They are the causes of your problems. ‘If only the world or other
people were different then I could make that changes I need’ may be the
refrain going round in your head.
So you sit and wait for something to shift ‘out there’ that will enable you to improve your lot. And you wait…and wait…and wait…
Are you still waiting…?
You could be waiting a long time.
What about the other way?
So what if you were to turn all that around and decide instead that you will be the one who makes the changes? What are you willing to change?
If you immediately feel yourself bristling slightly and thinking ‘why should I, it’s not my fault’ then maybe that is where to start.
Will you change your attitude to change and decide that you will take personal responsibility for creating a new future for yourself?
Where else could you make changes?
If you don't, then nothing will change. End of.
"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result."
Who Moved My Cheese
This is a great little book which explores how different people approach changes that they find themselves confronted with in life.
Some will stick their heads in the sand and try to cling to the familiar, while others will embrace it and grow and adapt.
The message is simple and succinct – you have to be willing to adapt to change as it happens around you if you are to survive. You might think you know this already – but are you really acting on this knowledge?
Written in the form of a parable, Who Moved My Cheese follows the adventures of Sniff and Scurry and contrasts them with Hem and Haw as they respond the changes in the maze they live in.
It provides an essential reminder that if you are stuck in a situation that is not working for you, get up and do something about it!
A short and easy read, this is the book to turn to every time you are finding change a struggle just to remind you that there is a way out.
