The Guide To Change … by Iyanla Vanzant

IYANLA1. HAVE A VISION.

You can’t achieve something if you don’t know what it is! Maybe you want to start thinking more positively. The vision will give you something to focus on and writing it down will help you to stay in track

2. GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE DIFFERENT…

from how you’ve been in the past and what you think is expected of you. Answer the call from within to connect with what is true for YOU!

3. BEGIN WHERE YOU ARE, WITH WHAT YOU HAVE.

When you start a workout a trainer will tell you, “If you can’t touch your toes touch your knees, if you can’t touch your knees go for your hips.” So do what you can. And then…

4. PUSH

When your mind says”No!” you say yes (No, you can’t think positively about that plane train delay? Yes – 2 hours to yourself! – yes, yes you can.)

5. LIGHTEN UP YOUR ENLIGHTENMENT 

Transformation doesn’t have to be deep, dark and mysterious. If you screw up fine – laugh at yourself, learn and move on.
