Welcome to our Autumn Issue of MATTERS Magazine, which is all about CHANGE.
We include some great articles on Sunshine Changemakers, and give you some ideas for embracing change and being the change within your industry, or within your life.
CHANGE is all about choice. If you choose to stay the same, nothing changes — you have to make the decision to change if you want 2017 to be your best year. We are definitely making it our best year. We are passionate about being the magazine on the Sunshine Coast that you MUST read. We are passionate about BEING THE CHANGE. We want you to read this magazine cover to cover, with the knowledge that every single page has the potential to help you change to become the “you” that you want to be.
You can sit back and watch and complain, this shouldn’t be, that shouldn’t be, shouldn’t happen —blah, blah, blah — they should do this, do that, etc., or you can stand up and be a catalyst for change yourself. We want to stand up and be counted, we want you to truly know that MATTERS magazine is about change; it is about encouraging the people and businesses on the Sunshine Coast to STEP UP, to work together, to be or become the BEST VERSION of themselves possible. We want to empower you to embrace change, to know that if something is going to happen, you can’t just sit back and hope for change, you have to be part of it. Collaboration is key — don’t consider others in your industry as competitors, consider them as collaborators, believe and know that together you can make your industry better. You do not need to keep these changes to yourself with a fear of your ideas being stolen — if your ideas are good, give them freely to all who will listen.
I love that Matters Magazine is essentially enticing other magazines to be more positive, to write more about the POWER OF THE MIND, because the truth is, in our opinion, success is exactly what you say it is. My belief is that success without fulfilment is failure; it doesn’t matter how much money you do or don’t have in the bank, if you are not at peace, if you are not content, the money means jackshit. We want to inspire people to see that success in both business and life is not only possible, but is actually possible by simply embracing change, by BEING THE CHANGE.
