Talking Change or Causing Change?

Some people talk change, others cause it.”

Hubert Humphrey

It was 1968 and Vice President Hubert Humphrey entered the race for President after President Johnson decided he would not seek re-election. His campaign theme was simple and to the point, “Some People Talk Change … Others Cause It”. We had the war in Vietnam, a sagging economy and unrest in the streets. Candidates were talking about change. Humphrey was saying talk can be cheap … suggesting that he could actually cause change just not talk about it.

His campaign message could have worked had he entered the race earlier and had a field organization in place. He was caught off guard by Johnson’s announcement and others had already been running with strong organization. Humphrey won the Democrat nomination after the assassination of Robert Kennedy and an explosive Chicago convention. The end result was Richard M. Nixon became President of the United States.

It doesn’t matter what your political bent is since this message is NOT about politics. This is about business and how you can increase your success in your business. Humphrey’s slogan is speaking to us today in a climate of uncertainty.

The late US Senator and Vice President is speaking directly to you. Are you just one to talk a lot about how you’re going to change and improve your business OR are you going to place things in motion to CAUSE these positive changes?

If you are under-employed or are looking for a new way to provide financial independence for you and your family for not only today but for decades to come, this Humphrey message is one you should pay attention to.

We know that talk is cheap. It is much harder to cause positive changes in what you do, day in and day out, to make advances in your business. Think about what you can do this week and really execute.

If you are in a dead-end job perhaps making a positive change in direction could really benefit you and your family.

The career I am familiar with is running your own business helping people plan for the physical, emotional and financial burdens Long Term Care places on family and friends.

ACSIA Long Term Care provides the state-of-the-art training and support, plus provides the millions in targeted marketing so you can speak to people interested in having a plan. Go to and discover a way to cause positive change for you.

If you are already in business or in a career you are very happy with, please keep in mind that you need to do more than just talk about change in your organziation. Positive change can be done in any organization if you are committed to it.

Here is the hard part: really executing these positive changes. Make the effort, see the positive changes and create your own luck!
