4 Ways to Help You Embrace Change

Steve Rizzo, personal development expert and SUCCESS blogger, encourages us to embrace change instead of just accepting it. He shares his personal inspiration and gives four tips to help us welcome changes in our own lives.   

“Change comes into your life in one [of] two ways: either by choice or by circumstances beyond your control. Either way, when it happens, you have to be able to do more than just accept change.”

Check out Rizzo’s advice on how to laugh more and stress less. 

Slow and Steady—and Generous—Wins the Race

 
In his talk with Darren Hardy, marketing expert Seth Godin offers these words of wisdom for finding success in today’s marketplace: Be generous and grow slowly.
 
Generosity encourages trust in a business, “and if you figure out how to be trusted by a group of people, then you have done something really difficult,” Godin says.
 
He also says to ignore the illusion of overnight success, adding that companies that seemed to immediately rise to the top actually took another route to get there.
 

Founding Principles of American Business Titans

In keeping with our July 2014 feature on American bootstrapping, this video explores what traits helped legendary tycoons like John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie and J.P. Morgan change the face of the American industry.

In this clip from History’s miniseries, The Men Who Built America, modern industry leaders like Alan Greenspan, Charles Schwab and Jack Welch offer up their theories on what made America’s bootstrappers great.

“I think they were men of great character, great motivation and could sense what they were really delivering,” says Schwab.

Profit with a Purpose

In this talk with Darren Hardy, MicroEnsure CEO Richard Leftley discusses his switch from a non-profit to a for-profit business and how it's helping him provide insurance to impoverished people in developing nations around the world.
 
By expanding the scale of MicroEnsure and setting up some creative partnerships, Leftley is able to offer insurance to more than 4 million people in places like Pakistan, Bangladesh and Zambia. 
 
"This came out of, really, our desire to do good," he says. "When we started off doing micro-insurance, it was really a philanthropic thing. We wanted to change the world; we wanted to make people's lives better."
