Can We Change the World?

It took me 100 years to figure out I can’t change the world.

~ Bessie Delaney, 1993, age 101

I get a kick out of this quote. I hope it doesn’t take me that long, but it may. We human beings are slow to learn the lessons of the universe. We are burdened with intelligence and creativity as much as we are blessed with them. They lead us to believe we have the power to effect change in the world around us. This includes the notion that we can somehow will ourselves well or free us of our problems. The reality is that about the only things we have any control over are our actions and reactions to the situations we face.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: What things in this universe are you trying to control today? Ask the God of your understanding to take these over just for today. At night, thank God for handling things all day for you.

Note: Comment below and let me know how this works for you.
