Like it or not, time changes. Today I’m going to show you where to put your focus so you can create the change you desire, and begin to love change.

Whether you have an extra hour, or not, your time matters.

You may like change, or you may not. But change is inevitable. It’s a reality of living here on planet earth.

You can respond to life and create change. OR you can react to it, and resist change.

However, resisting change doesn’t allow you to avoid it.

What are you doing to be a catalyst for change in your life? To create positive change…the change you desire?

In order to create change, we must look at our TIME.

There are 3 types of time…

1. The Past
2. The Present
3. The Future

But the only time that we can change is the present, while creating the future.

When it comes to change, the greatest thing we have available to us is our NOW. It’s the date called “TODAY.”

The BEST day is the one in which you’re Being Excellent Starting Today (you know how much I love a great acronym.)

Where we’ve been gives us insight and valuable wisdom.

Where we are allows us to create a valuable present and future.

Where you focus is where you’ll go.

Get your focus on today, because it’s what allows you to steer your life into the future you desire.

This life is moving.

So are you going to be in the front seat or the back seat?

You know, as well as I do, that nobody likes a backseat driver. So get in the front seat, and get your hands on the wheel.

Which way are you going to go?

In order to master change, you must be present in your now.

Then look into the future — into the desires of your heart — to see where you’re going.

If you desire to become a change maker and a master of change, it’s vital to look at where you’ve come from, where you are, and where you desire to be tomorrow. As well as who you desire to become.

You MUST get present, and FOCUSED.

I’m here to remind you today.

You already know this, but we can get so caught up in our day-to-day lives, that we forget and simply pass time.

It’s time to get behind the wheel of your life, yourself, and ideas, and be your biggest cheerleader.

Remind yourself that you can do this!

Practice change daily.

What are you going to do today to get the maximum value from this extra hour, or every hour of your life?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage with yourself.)


Write down ONE thing that you’d like to change in the next week.

That’s right, in the next 7 days. What change would like to create?

Commit to it with all your heart and soul.

You’ll be amazed at how change you can create in your life in as little as 7 days.

Change begins the moment you make a commitment. It takes time, but transformation happens the moment you make that decision.
