I talk with lots of people that want to change. Change their income. Change their health. Change their relationships.

Change is hard. In fact, change is impossible. You have proven this to yourself over and over again.

Most people who want change, want it fast. C’mon – we have fast food, instant coffee, same-day delivery from Amazon … we want what we want and we want it fast. We want it now.

But lasting change doesn’t come quickly. It’s a slow process.

In my view, a better way to look at developing change is to work on improving.

Look at that word for a minute.

Do you see the “I’m proving” in improving? That’s what improving is all about. Proving to yourself, slowly, that you can accomplish the change you seek.

If you really want to change your income, your health or your relationships, let me encourage you to take an “I’m proving” approach. Slowly, one day at a time, just prove to yourself you can do something.

If you want more sales, try proving to yourself you can make one more call a day.

If you want to improve your health, try proving to yourself that you can go to the gym, even if it’s only for 10 minutes.

If you want to change your relationships, try proving to yourself that you can be just a little more tolerant or loving.

Then, over time, prove to yourself you can do more.

If you want change – instead of seeking massive, instant success – just try improving slowly and incrementally.

Improve your life with “I’m proving” for life.
