It is so easy for us to always focus on the negatives, but to even get us in the right headspace to make a change in our lives we need to remember what is important, what we already have and to appreciate every last bit of it.
There are so many excuses that we give ourselves for not making our lives what we want them to be:
- No time
- No opportunity
- No money
- Too stressed
The list goes on but the chances are that one thing that we want to change and has always eluded us, is the one thing that would most likely transform all of that.
For me (like many others that I speak to through my site) the change I wanted to make was in my career, my job and everyday working life. Having gone through the system of University, Graduate scheme and a few good jobs at good businesses, nothing seemed to be fulfilling me. I worked hard and was rewarded with progression, pay rises etc but it all still felt like I wasn’t really moving in the right direction, I was going forward but at a tangent to my real dreams.
Now I am sure this is true for many of you – if it is then you can find a lot of helpful posts and info on the rest of the site about creating a working life that you love – but to stick to the more general topic (I understand that not everyone is dissatisfied in their job), it’s about focusing on what you want and realising that no-one is going to just give it to you.
You have to put in the effort, you have to find the answer and you have to go for it.
It becomes easy to tell ourselves – we have tried, it doesn’t work, I can’t do it, but now think if someone said find the solution to your problem and I will give you a million pounds, I bet you would do everything possible to do it and make it work? And no doubt you WOULD find that solution.
So… why not just go for it, make a start and get changing your life today! Stop waiting for someone to hand that change to you.
You don’t need a miracle you just need to find the opportunity that is waiting for you.
If you have any questions or would just like to discuss where you are currently at it would be great to hear from you.
