A Father’s Daily Action to his daughter during The United States Air Force Academy Basic Training

The word for today is CHANGIFICATION: the process of intentionally switching things around to STRETCH (StretchiFication) the CAPACITY (Capacification) of someone. It’s funny, we always pursue comfort and calmness, but we seldom grow when we are comfortable; just recover. In order to grow, we have to stretch our capacity by creating change. Intentionally changing the people we are with, our surroundings, and what we are doing is ChangiFication.  It is a process that will stretch us further and expand our capacity. That’s the beauty of change. Without change, we stop growing. The process of consistent change or CHANGIFICATION may appear frustrating but will accelerate your growth.

Usually, change seems to be thrown at us as if we can’t control it or it is some kind of external impact that leaves us powerless.  ChangiFication is different than this type of change. ChangiFication is when you or I seek out change for the purpose of growth and development.  It is intentional. The ability to prosper through change is a skill that is developed over time and may never be perfected, but you can always grow by succeeding in the face of change.


Love, Dad
