Curly Washburn (Jack Palance) offers Mitch Robbins (Billy Crystal) some words of wisdom about the secret to life in the 1991 movie City Slickers. Curly suggested that there is one thing you need to find happiness and peace in life. The point is that we all have to find that one thing for ourselves.
Awareness, Words, and Actions are steps t0 help you find that one thing ©
- Awareness- Finding the words that give you a sense of purpose for yourself, others, and the world. (You have to know that you want a change)
- Words– Using behavioral words to define yourself. (Have to find a way to focus yourself on inner thinking while living in an active physical world- Who do you want to be- friendly, helpful, compassionate, efficient?)
- Actions– Actions that match the words you have chosen. (If words and actions do not match, trust and authenticity are fractured. Actions are the true nature of a person, while words are white noise)
The most difficult part of finding that one thing is deciding to make the change, but when you decide, then that one thing can change you, your community, and maybe even the world.
