Becoming a Butterfly

"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly." —Anonymous

Think back to the last time you received terrible news or went through a difficult situation—maybe you got fired, experienced a terrible breakup or were extremely depressed.

Now look at where you are today. From this perspective can you see what was positive about the experience. What did you learn or gain? How did you grow? The next time something not-so-fun happens, remember that there is always something brighter just around the corner. This is the Change Guarantee.

Keep moving forward and you'll get there!
