Changing Your World: Becoming the Catalyst
“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
Why do things change? Do things just naturally change for the good overtime or do things gradually decay if left alone? How is momentum created? Why are some people upwardly mobile while others are downwardly mobile? Why do some companies grow each year as they look for new opportunities to reinvent themselves, while some companies shrink gradually while always talking about the “good old days?” These are the questions that my companies have been dealing with over the past few fews, and during the course of this article I will address each of them.
Why do things change?
As a general rule, things change because they erode. As each river of variables enters into our lives, our families or our corporations they usually take a small piece of us everytime they pass through. A family member moves out of town because his job relocated him. Then we lose a friendship. At work your competition locally or internationally comes up with a new invention, innovation of efficiency program and now your company is looking to cut costs to remain competitive. Then someone loses a job. We get older and we gradually become less active. Things start to get sore. Thus, we get even less physically active. Over time we begin to atrophy and our bodies really begin to fall apart. The rains come down, and they wash away part of the soil as the water flows down hill. So are we do combat this natural erosion of families, friendships and finances? We must be intentional about becoming the change that we want to see.
Unless we want to fall victim to the natural erosion that is a part of life, we must show some resiliency. We must fortify our families, our friendships and our businesses with a series of elaborate dams and levies. We must be proactive about making those extra calls to family and friends. We must tend to those relationships like they are a garden. We must pull out the weeds, we must water them consistently by investing time in them. We must look for those bad apples who are poisoning our office cultures. We must not sit back and watch as nature takes its course. Nature is naturally anarchist. Leave things unattended and they will gradually fall part. We must be INTENTIONAL about setting up the systems, the accountabilities, the meetings, and the candor needed to FORCE positive change. Notice, you must FORCE positive change. It will not happen unless you FORCE it to happen. Momentum will never be created in your life or in your business unless you are INTENTIONAL ABOUT MAKING IT HAPPEN. Now let’s talk about some specifics.
Specifically, how do I create momentum at work and in my business?
In your personal life, you are going to have work diligently to keep relationships in good standing. Most people do not have alot of friends. Most people do not have good marriages. Most people are not in shape. Most people are not successful. Most people struggle to achieve. Are you going to be most people? You are not going to be most people because you are going to create your own momentum. You are going to call your friends more often. You are not going to become easily offended. You are going to have a great marriage because you are going to prioritize spending time with your wife. You are going to get in shape because you are going to be diligent about working out everyday. If you are not diligent that you cannot be successful. If you are not consistent, then you are going to fail, bottom line.
Why are some people upwardly mobile, while some people are downwardly mobile?
The great news here is that you can achieve profound success in this world, if you will simply create a plan for your life and then implement that plan.

Buying tips for Tulsa Real Estate:
Below are tips for purchasing Tulsa Real Estate, to be in the best possible financial position when you do purchase. Of course one of the first things you have to consider when purchasing real estate is where you are going to go for a lender. When searching for the best lender, keep in mind that there are a few things that all lenders consider. First of all they will all look at where you are getting the funds for the down payment and closing costs. The lenders are required to completely document all sources for the funds being used. This means that they will have to look through all of your bank records and need documentation of canceled checks, savings accounts, and even company 401k information.
When putting down a down payment for a property, it is often wise to put down a sizable down payment. Depending on the lender 5, 10, or 20 percent is usual, but it is often a good sign for the lenders if you can put down more than the minimum down payment. It is often wise to plan to pay 20 percent or more for the down payment, if you do not you could be required to obtain private mortgage insurance (PMI).
Finally, when choosing a Tulsa real estate property it is important to inspect the property thoroughly. By doing this you can usually get the seller to fix most of the problems before you buy. It is also a good idea to look around the area for properties around you, considering how well they are maintained. The area around the property will have a part in the price of the property, so make sure the area around it meets your requirements and is not in terrible condition. trash on the streets is a sign that the people around you do not keep up very good care of their properties, which could end up diminishing the value of the property you are looking at.
