Change can be good for you. In today's world of societal and corporate change, job security is a thing of the past. While we must face the fact that change is inevitable, we should also realize that many changes are positive and benefit both individuals and businesses.

Some things you can change and some you can't. You cannot change when you were born, where you were born, how you were born or to whom you were born. It's a fact that if you were born white you will stay white and if you were born black you will remain black. It's a fact that you cannot change a single event that has already happened. You can't change one whisper of yesterday. Tomorrow, however, is an entirely different matter. If you're willing to change your thinking today, you can change your life and your living to make your tomorrows better and brighter.

Example: As a student at Yazoo City High School in Mississippi, table tennis was one of my favorite sports. Frankly, I could beat most of my buddies at that particular sport. Then a new kid came to town and he beat me regularly. I was using the old three-finger grip; he was using the new "handshake" grip. I felt that I was playing as well as I could with the grip I was using so I changed to the "handshake" grip. Initial results were disastrous. My buddies beat me like a drum. But after a couple of weeks I started winning and eventually was able to beat the "new kid in town." I'm convinced there was no way I could have done that without changing my grip, though I actually got worse at first.

Message: Analyze your situation. Have you gone as far as you can go and are you doing as well as you can with present procedures? If so, don't be afraid to take two steps back if it will enable you to move three steps forward. Make those changes and I'll SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
