Change: It All Begins Within You(Being the change you want to see in the world).

Change is inevitable. We all know that nothing or no one stays the same forever. If something indeed does remain the same throughout the years, there is absolutely no growth happening. Let me rephrase that. Growth may be happening, but it's not the positive growth that we should be striving for. One thing that I hear and read from a lot of others is how the world is changing. Most of the time, people say it's changing for the worse. I'll admit myself that I concur that it is, but that doesn't mean you can't provide change. This is ya man Brad H. back at you once again with another blog posting of 'Brad H's Perspective'.

As you can undoubtedly can tell, this week's post will deal with change, and how it starts within us. As I mentioned earlier, the world is changing, and not always for the better. Negativity and unfortunate incidents seem to dominate in today's society. It's almost like there is something bad or negative taking place whenever we turn on the news -- which is one of the reasons why I seldom watch the news these days. However, despite all of the changes along with all the bad occurring, there are still a lot of good and positive things always taking place. There are also a lot of positive and inspirational people out there in the world. Keeping a positive mindset is vital, but can sometimes be tough.

So maybe you're like a lot of people who doesn't like how things are going in general. Maybe it's happening in your household, or maybe in your community. To be even more broader, it could be happening in your city or state. Maybe you don't like some of the actions and things that others close to you are engaging in. Maybe it annoys and frustrates you that so many people are allowing negativity to run their lives. You know what it's time to do? Let go of it all, and focus on yourself. If you want to see change in your environment, it must start within you first. You can't be an individual that wants something or someone to change, but you're not willing to change yourself in order to be an example for others.

It's never guaranteed that others will follow your lead in addressing issues important to you. However, if enough people see that you're trying to spread something you're passionate about through your actions, eventually someone will come on board. The key word is action. Any movement that takes or has taken place, never starts big. It's comparable to a snowball rolling down a hill. It starts out small, but becomes bigger as it gains momentum. It's the same exact way with change. So to sum it all up, we have to focus on saving ourselves first. Only then will we be able to be an example to others. And remember, don't complain about things that are happening if you're not willing to change yourself to be an example. That's basically it.

As always, I appreciate you reading another edition of 'Brad H's Perspective'. Hopefully you found some understanding via this post. I'll see you all next time. Peace!
