Change Your Philosophy, Change Your Life

Rodin-27s-ThinkerFor change to occur in your life, your philosophy must change. I did not invent this idea, nor did Jim Rohn who said “Success is not something you pursue, it’s something you become.”

Both Jim Rohn and I agree that changing your philosophy and becoming more must be your foundation. If you believe that you are going to pursue money, awards or promotions, you are wrong. If you think you are going to convince others to change while you’re still thinking and doing the same things, you are wrong. If you are waiting for a new company President, happier colleagues or more positive relatives, you are wrong. Your philosophy must change for your life to change.

What does a successful philosophy look like? Well, everyone is different and will have a different formula for success. I can give you some ideas to get you started on improving your philosophy…here are 3 to get you started:

1) Stop blaming others and start taking 100% responsibility

Your position in life is because of your habits, thinking patterns and choices. It’s nobody else’s fault you’re not living up to your potential personally, professionally or within your relationships.

2) Identify your biggest fault and start changing it now

Be honest with yourself. What is the one single element that holds you back. Fear? Procrastination? Low self-worth? Trying to be perfect?
What is it? Change its direction NOW. If you need help, ask.

3) Do one thing each day that makes you feel uncomfortable

Comfort zones kill progress. We make decisions every day that are comfortable and easy. It’s human nature to take the path of least resistance. While this may be smart when you’re surviving in the wild, it is not helpful to your self-growth and life progress. You need to become more to attract more; if you want more money, better relationships, more happiness, increased confidence or pretty much anything better, you have to practice being uncomfortable. DO something uncomfortable each day and watch the world around you change for your benefit.


There are many more elements that can mold one’s philosophy. You now have a few to get you started. Enjoy the journey and ask for help along the way.
