Where Do You Start?

on October 6, 2012

“Where does change begin? It begins in this room. 

Why? 

Because this is the room you are in.”

-Peter Block

“If we really want to step up and make a difference…we need to understand that the best place to begin stepping up is wherever you are right now. Stepping up begins when we open our eyes and see that wherever we are, whatever moment we are in, and whatever situation we find ourselves in, stepping up is available to us right there.

…As Arthur Ashe, the late tennis great, once said ‘To achieve greatness, start where you are, use what you have, and do what you can’.”

The above is an excerpt from Chapter 7 of Dr. John Izzo’s book: Stepping Up , How Taking Responsibility Changes Everything. We’ll be giving away a copy of this book at the Starting Where You Are retreat in mid-October.

Questions for you: Where in your life or work are you feeling frustrated? What change are you seeking? How might you start exactly where you are and step up?
