Waiting or change your thinking – Want’s it going to be?

Change. Many people want change to happen, but they are waiting for it to come along and simply happen for them. Some of you may be fans of positive affirmations, of New Year's resolutions and some of you may not. My take on it is that on it's own, setting your...
