Whatever you dream you can, begin it.

CHANGE – YOU make it happen


Tiny Revolutions

Yesterday’s blog post  by community and social media guru Chris Brogan is absolutely a must read for anyone. That is, anyone who dreams of starting something new, anyone who is currently taking “tiny” steps in their own “revolution” on a path to change their lives- or the world…or anyone who has “been there, done that”. Because there’s always a new challenge, a new frontier, a new mountain (or, for some of us, a new anthill that feels like a mountain) to climb.


The KEY difference between your revolution and letting life live you is that YOU start making these events happen, instead of just letting them happen to you.


That one quote is the most powerful statement in Chris’ post. After being laid off 4 times in 6 years, enduring chemotherapy, a divorce, and several other adverse life events in the same time period, I felt like a rubber ball with all the bounce missing. Resilience? I didn’t have an ounce left. It took me six months of participation in a series of education programs to realize that I felt like – and acted like – a victim (life happens to me…I have no control). Ba da bing! THAT was the beginning of my tiny revolution.


Taking action, even when the outcome is uncertain, is empowering and energizing.


Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

—Goethe
