Making a Change That Matters

Making a Change That Matters


Almost everyone wants to change or improve some part of their life. For some people, it's eating better or getting more exercise. For others, it might be quitting smoking or drinking less. But whatever the change, you have to be ready to make it. And only you know when you're ready for a change.

Maybe you're ready for a change today. Or maybe you don't feel like you need to make a change right now. No matter where you're at—you've come to the right place.

Which of these sounds most like you?

  • Not Ready for Change? "My life's too crazy to deal with anything new right now, and I'm fine. I don't think my behavior is that big a problem."
  • Thinking About a Change? "Life could be better. I don't know how much I can do right now, but I think something needs to change."
  • Planning for a Change That Matters. "I know what hasn't worked before. I need to think this through."
  • Making Your Change Happen. "I'm ready to make a change."
  • Keeping Change Going—Your New Normal. "I'm glad I made the change, but some days it's not easy. And I've come too far to go back now."
