So you’ve decided to take charge of your life. Congrats! It’s not an easy decision to make, but knowing that you can turn your life around is very empowering. That being said, how are you going to change your life?
I’m sensing there are crickets in the room. It’s not an easy question. But even though your stomach may already be twisting in knots, your journey has only begun. The thing to determine now is how you want your life to change. What is it that you want? Are you looking for a new career? Are you hoping to start a new relationship, move your relationship to the next level, start a family? Do you want to get healthy? Do you want to bring more meaning into your life?
There are no wrong answers. That’s the beauty of it. It’s your life. You can make it what you want it to be. And while I would love to think you want to be a positive, proactive, contributing member of society, the truth of the matter is that you can apply these concepts to anything you want. It’s just a question of figuring out what it is you want and coming up with a course of action to get there.
That means it’s time for self-reflection. You may be miserable. You may be only slightly disgruntled. Either way, you’re not happy with how things are. So take some time to figure out what it is that you’re unhappy with. When you dream about what your life could be like, what is it that’s different?
In the next few blog posts I’ll be going into more ideas and suggestions to get your brain working, depending on which category your life changes fall into. While the possibilities are truly endless, many have come before you. And they have paved the way. With the internet — and the global community it’s developed — you have more options than ever. And that can only be a good thing. Now you can get the support, feedback and inspiration you need, when you need it. I’d like to think that this blog will be one source of inspiration for you, but it’s not the only one.
It’s going to be an exciting journey. It’s been exciting and invigorating to me, and I know it can be for you, too. So give it some time, think about what you want, and let’s get started!
