I am an old movie buff and have very fond memories of hanging out with my mother watching Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Cary Grant, Betty Davis, Jimmy Stewart and other movie icons from the past.
I have always respected and admired Katherine Hepburn as a leading lady in the movie industry. She set the stage for many other female movie stars to succeed. A very out-spoken individual who had clear and well-defined opinions about everything, she had a long career in Hollywood. She garnered four Best Actress Awards in her 60 years on the big screen.
One of my favorite quotes from her is, “We are taught you must blame your father, your sisters, your brother, the school, the teachers – but never blame yourself. It’s never your fault. But’s is always your fault, because if you wanted to change you’re the one who has got to change.”
I love this quote and it goes perfectly with my “millimeter approach” to change.
It is so easy to blame everything and everybody for whatever isn’t working in our lives. Change is hard, scary and intimidating.
But it does not need to be when you approach the change with a “millimeter approach,” those small, but significant steps toward your personal or business goals.
Why not stop the blaming and take a millimeter approach. Do just one small thing today to move forward to your goals of better health, weight loss, more customers, better relationships, more money and more success. You can’t keep blaming your family, your teachers, the economy, our government or the weather.
