i-TFTD #206: Back After a Break

#206-1. Every decision you makeevery decisionis not a decision about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes.
-Neale Donald Walsch

#206-2. If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.
-Anita Roddick

#206-3. Once failure leads to change... Change will then lead toward success.
-Stefan Rudolph

#206-4. If your life has become root-bound and you have stopped growing, it is time to re-pot.
-Lucy MacDonald

#206-5. Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
-Oprah Winfrey

Profound advice. Periodically thinking about who I am as a person improves my decision making ability in future situations because I begin accepting myself, my limitations. That makes it easier to seek help. With this self-understanding, every situation becomes an opportunity to change, learn and grow or to re-affirm who I am.

Funny remark from a great lady entrepreneur (founder of The Body Shop), but a reminder that each of us is significant and can initiate change.

We know change is necessary but we seem to need setbacks to highlight it sometimes.

Changing our environment could be the remedy for enabling inner changes.

True friends can be identified by their presence and support during adverse times. Success and power attract a lot of companions that one should be wary of.
