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

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

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
