What Real Change Is

“Real change is when everyone pulls together, comes together, works together, when all exercise our responsibilities to ourselves, to our families, to our communities and to others.”

-David Cameron

       Real change comes down to one thing: a choice. It’s the decision to do whatever is necessary to uphold what we sincerely believe in. David Cameron’s quote reminds us that real change cannot be achieved alone. In essence it takes a village to make that change happen.

The first choice is deciding to pull everyone in to even give the remote possibility of having change having a chance to even occur. If you are resistant because of what you fear then change will never even have a chance to get off of the ground. Now when you make the joint decision to come together the challenge then lies in working together. Yes there will be disagreements and to try and avoid ever having these is nearly impossible, so don’t even try. Be yourself and let them do the same. Learn to compromise, learn to look at things from their perspective. Don’t lose sight that you all are on the same side and wanting the same kind of change. There will be many different pathways to get there. Just keep moving forward. Keep moving forward together.

The quote continues in reminding us that we all have certain responsibilities in order for the change we want to see and actually happen becoming a reality. We need to learn to let go of negativity and let positivity and hope overtake our body and soul. We owe this to ourselves. We owe this to our families and our society as a whole. Our future is dependent upon on us coming together to be that change. So step up and make it happen.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
