The funny thing about change is that most people are unhappy with the way things are, yet few want to go through the pain of changing. In a way this amounts to SHORT changing ourselves.
Change is upon us. Ready or not, here it comes- politically, socially, economically, and financially. The question is not if will we be facing change in the coming year, but, “how will we deal with it?”
I like to believe that if we approach change from the standpoint of “attraction” then we can transform “adapting to necessary change” into LEADING revolutionary change! This is one of the reasons that I have created my “attraction principles.” I believe that with the right knowledge, mindset, and discipline we can actually “attract” a positive, desirable change, rather than being swept-up in unwanted change.
Over the next few weeks, I would like to share these principles with you, my clients, class members, subscribers, and listeners. It is my hope that they can help you “take control of change.” Each week I will focus on several principles and discuss how practicing them can help us to create sustainable change, win deeper relationships and become more influential to those within our sphere of influence.

- Become a big fish in a smaller pond.

- Reverse people’s risk in changing.
- Don’t be a better option, become the ONLY solution.
- Create an exclusive community of “super-users.”

- Traditional advertising is a HOPE business.
- Collaborate rather than compete.
- Who we are is more important that what we do.
- Create standards and systems that nurture.
