Be The Change Yourself

Watching what happened with the NFL player this week reminds us all about context. A player was super-talented, made more money than almost anybody could ever hope, and subsequently murdered at least one person, set to spend the rest of his life in prison. It is so easy to watch from here and say something like "if I had all that money then everything would be easy." Studies show similarly that poor people who win the lottery end up poor again within a couple of years.

Always remember that the real way to change your life is to change you. Acquiring things around you seems like such a great idea, but changing yourself is where the real benefit comes. Doing the work and changing yourself means that no matter what happens around you, your life is better.

Be the change yourself. Nothing else truly changes your context.
