January is often viewed as a month of Change. Here at Brevedy, we’ve been reviewing and summarizing Charlie Harary’s 10 part audio series on Change. Over the past few installments, we’ve been focused on developing the proper mentality for Change. Today, we are going to speak about how the way we view ourselves is one of the greatest barriers to change.
Change itself is not usually physical. But if you want to see change, look at an ocean-liner changing direction. It’s barely perceivable and it takes an extremely long period of time. A race-car, on the other hand, can turn on a dime. What’s the difference? The difference is baggage. When we realize that we are not defined by the physical, that we are not our past bad decisions, when we shed our baggage, we can change on a dime. That’s not saying its easy. But it can be done.
Realizing that our power to change is rooted in the fact that we are spiritual beings, creates a mentality that we can change, on a dime. Today, you can recreate yourself by thinking “I’m a different person. I’m not defined by my past.” Now, you’re ready for change. Moving forward, we will discuss the steps that we need to take to execute that change.
