Change is the Law of life….

Last month was about thinking BIG and creating a better future.

This month I thought about changing the format a little, being inspired by the content in the book of the month “The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs”

We also had great feedback last month on our book of the month for kids based on Stephen Coveys 7 habits. It is always great to get your feedback. Thanks for making time to read this. We always endeavour to make it motivational and give you some food for thought.

Trust you are going to be inspired to create an Awesome April for yourself.

Change is the law of Life

Taking action and changing the format of the Newsletter this month I have decided to expand on some of the quotes I was reviewing for my presentation at the upcoming Miners Health & Wellbeing Conference**

I trust you can find a quote about change and the future which sparks your passion and you decide to make some changes in your professional and personal life so you to can “make a ding in the universe”!

Quick Quotations to inspire:

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward: you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” Steve Jobs

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Peter Drucker

“Change is the law of life. and those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.” JF Kennedy

“I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” Thomas Jefferson.

“Ordinary people believe only in the possible. Extraordinary people visualise not what is possible or impossible, but rather what is impossible. and by visualising the impossible, they begin to see it as possible.” Cherie Carter-Scott.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the one’s we have been waitng for. We are the change that we seek.” Barack Obama.

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer.

“You see things: and say , “Why?” But I dream things that never were: and say “Why not?” George Bernard Shaw

“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” Buddha.

A final thought………..

BOOK REVIEW:
The Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs – Insanely Different Principles for Breakthrough Success

Many of you will know lots about Steve Jobs already. This book covers the known stories but also some new ones like Dysons 5123 failures and why Steve trusted his instinct to take a Calligraphy class not knowing why he was being guided to it.

The overriding message is that the secret of success is to follow your passion and do what you love. Available as an audio book which I found fantastic for listening to when driving and inspiring me rather than listening to the negativity of the news reports.

Here is a link to the book:
