Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” – John. F. Kennedy


Since “change is the law of life,” below are 5 reasons it’s important to SHIFT:

#1: Life and Work often seem to move at the speed of light, and if you are not careful it will carry you to places you didn’t intend to go….SHIFT-ing your focus to become more aware will allow you to make conscious choices in order to steer your life and work in the direction you desire.

#2: If you don’t consider long-term consequences when choosing short-term actions, your sigh of relief today could become a state of agony later…..SHIFT-ing your actions to be more aligned with your long-term desires puts you in the driver’s seat in whatever change journey you are now experiencing.

#3: You cannot control anyone but yourself – especially the people you love most.….SHIFT-ing your expectations to think the best of those around you, while also acknowledging their human weakness, makes you more capable of offering grace and forgiveness in the same way you would hope to receive it.

#4: When you say the phrase “I can’t” it’s only a matter of time before you make that statement true…..SHIFT-ing your beliefs will open up amazing opportunities for you to become who you had always hoped you would be and accomplish things you always dreamed of.

#5: Not having the right people in your inner-circle can make a difficult situation even harder…..SHIFT-ing your relationships may be necessary to ensure you are receiving effective wisdom and support during any season of your life and work.
