Why Be the Change? This is an interesting question and there are a couple of layers to the question.
The first, to paraphrase Gandhi is to ask yourself why YOU would want to be the change you want to see in the world.
It seems like a simple enough question, especially if you are already reading this article, and I talk to people every week who LOVE the “idea” of being the change, but they are not willing to take the actions to truly “be the change”.
What do I mean, well they spend a lot of time talking about how great their modality, product or service is, but are not taking the actions necessary to actually get this amazing “life changing” gift out into the world.
They feel that people should just be “attracted” to them for them to be helped, as apposed to actually going out there and bringing the change out into the world.
The phrase is, “Be the change you wish to see in the world”, that last part is KEY. “In the world”, not hanging out behind your computer. Not playing it safe where no one can see you. Not being the change you wish to see on some blog or twitter feed, but out in the world!
Why am I so passionate about this, because I spent a couple of years trying to be the change I wanted to see in my living room. Trying to be the change I wanted to see when talking with close friends. Trying to be the change I wanted to see in my ezine going out to a couple hundred people. Trying to be the change behind my computer.
The only real change that happened in my world was that I went 6-figures in debt, ate rice and beans for a month straight and almost had to give up on my dream.
Then an amazing thing happened. I got some advice from Suzanne and I got out from behind my computer and I actually went out into the world. I learned how to “be” the change I wanted to see in the world THROUGH my business and everything turned around.
Paige and I went from being 6-figures in debt to having a 6-figure business in 8-months. We actually started to have clients. We actually started to change lives. And we actually started to BE the change I wanted to see OUT in the world.
So, you may be asking yourself, how do I learn to be the change I wish to see, how do I even know what to say when I’m out there “in the world”. Well, that is the second layer to the question, “Why Be the Change?”
And almost as important as the first layer, this second layer actually helps you to get you and the change you want to bring to the world – out in the world.
And that is Suzanne’s Be the Change Event.
At the first Be the Change, Paige and I got our first “high-paying” client, we connected with people who would become clients, JV partners, colleagues and friends, and it marked a real turn around for our business.
Be the Change happens every Spring and it is THE Event to be at, if you want to meet new partners, potential clients and learn how to get your message, your business, and your change out in the world.
This is the 5th year, and this year is going to be bigger, better and just plain more “Hell Yeah!” than previous years.
If you’re ready to actually Be the Change you wish to see in the world, but you’re not sure how to do it, how to get out there, or who to connect with. Get yourself to the Be the Change Event and get your change out in the world.
If you have any questions about the Be the Change Event and if it’s the right event for you just email support@SuzanneEvans.org.
