30 Tokens of Wisdom about Change

The phrase, “It takes twenty-one days to form a habit” encourages us to change in three weeks. Is change really possible in such a short period? For some it may work, but for others (let’s face it) it may take longer.

Change begins with a focus. I took a 4-step guide to discovering who you’re meant to be, Oprah had published. It helped me realize I am living out my purpose. Once I had confirmation about my purpose, I started a plan to focus on.

Through tokens of wisdom from mentors, family, friends, entrepreneurs, and books, here are what has helped me make better choices in life. Habits are what we choose to do daily. Some days are going to be easier than others, but keep going because you’re closer than you think.
