Hey, It's Time For Cheese

Today I read the book Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson, M.D.

I'm super surprised I have not read it before. I think I thought I had. I realized I have been thinking about many of the thoughts expressed in it for a while now, sans the cheese references of course. I kind of wish I had read it sooner, it might have spurred me on a bit faster in my quest to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

What would you do if you weren't afraid? (aka...What would I really love to do? The question of the past year.)

Smell the cheese often so you know when it is getting old. (In retrospect I didn't do this often enough and my cheese unfortunately got moldy.)

Movement in a new direction helps you find new cheese. (Already feeling like these are fantastic words to live by!)

When you move beyond your fear, you feel free. (In my own words, Let it go...Let it go).

Imagining myself enjoying new cheese even before I find it, leads me to it. (No wonder why I have been so excited about vision board workshops lately, they are based on The Law of Attraction.)

The Law of Attraction states that whatever you focus on, think about, read about, and talk about intensely, you’re going to attract more of into your life.

The quicker you let go of old cheese, the sooner you find new cheese. (Out with the old, in with the new, bring on those new opportunities. I'm ready).

Old beliefs do not lead you to new cheese. (I think I have said this in the last year in every which way I could possibly think of... sans the cheese reference.)

Change happens.
Anticipate change.
Monitor change.
Adapt to change quickly.
Enjoy change!
Be ready to change quickly and enjoy it again & again.

All of the above phrases were taken from the book Who Moved My Cheese? by Spencer Johnson, M.D. Although at times, we all have a little Sniff, a little Scurry, some Hem and some Haw in us, we have the ability to adjust our attitudes and our ways of thinking to take control of our lives. Currently within me, Sniff and Haw are large and in charge. How about you?

Have you read it yet? Might be worth it, it's a quick read.
