Proverbs 22:3 "A prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it."
The word CHANGE is to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it is or from what it would be if left alone. To transform or convert.
There are many times in our life that we must take a hard long look at various aspects of our life and ask; How is it going? If not well, why? What can I do about it? What needs to change? How do I change it? Who can help me change? Etc. Then we must face the fear and take the risks necessary and move forward.
The challenge is that we often get comfortable with the status-quo and say, "well this is the way we've always done it." Even though it's not working, we continue to think that "this time it will be different", and it never is... because "if you keep doing what you've always done you'll keep getting the same results you've always gotten."
So, is there anything in your life that needs to change for 2010? Do you want something to be different in your life? If so, don't be like the "simple" person who just keeps going in the same direction! Be prudent and CHANGE! You will be glad you did!
