Small Adjustments Make For Big Life Changes

Its the small things, not the big ones, that we make that make the difference in our lives.

Legendary business philosopher, Jim Rohn says, “What if an apple a day keeps the doctor away? What if that is in fact true? Must you eat an apple a day? What happens if you wait until Saturday to arrive and just sit down and eat 7 apples? Won't that work as well?”

I think most of us 'get the point'. You can't eat 7 apples on Saturday and make up for what you didn't do all week. It will make you sick.

My grandmother used to make the most amazing pies. My favorite was coconut. The meringue was the best part; well, besides the crust; well beside the filling....oh, and the coconuts. Anyway, mama would set the pie out to cool after baking. She didn't have air conditioning in her house. She would set them near a window.

Flies were always a problem but, they were big enough to see. It was the pesky gnats that got into the meringue that I hated. You'd see one about the time you had the fork full in your mouth.

Just like the gnats, its the little things that mess up life.

Mr. Rohn said, “There are about 7 things that you either do or don't do in a day that would make the major difference in your life.” Think about it. Only 7 things that determine the state of your health, wealth, relationships and life.

When I heard him say this, I immediately went to work discovering what those 7 things were in MY life. You might want to do this yourself. Just take a piece of paper and draw a line down the middle. On one side, list the things that you know you SHOULD be doing each day that can make a big difference in your life. On the other side, list those things that you need to stop doing in order to make your life better. You'll find it challenging enough with this list.

Start working on them one by one. Make the changes that you need to make to make your life better. You deserve to be happy, healthy and in control of your life. You'll feel much better when you do it.
