Reading this won’t change your life whatsoever.

The only thing that changes our lives is making decisions and taking action.

Thoughts are thoughts.

But action—compassionate, enthusiastic, intentional, meaningful action—is the one and only key to “changing our lives.”

So when you read a sensational headline promising that a video or collection of quotes or photos or whatever will change your life, don’t buy it. It’s nothing more than clever advertising.

I know, I know. We want to believe something simple and effortless will change us for the better. I have, in the past, wished for signs from the astrological sky, longed for answers in Tarot card readings and begged for clarity and guidance from the I Ching.

Sadly, it (usually) doesn’t work that way. Life changes require action. Happiness, balance and flexibility are skills that take practice.
