Do you have any New Year resolutions for this year? If so, what would you like to change or reinforce when it comes to your passions and interests? Making positive changes in your life doesn’t really mean you need to drastically change your behavior, goals and attitude; it only means being more passionate about what you want to achieve in life and what drives you. Do you feel burdened by expectations of loved ones and family? Are there things you wish you could have done, but never had the time to do so? May be now is the time to fulfill your passions and dreams, or at least get a head start.
You don’t need huge goals in life to be happy or be successful, indecisiveness and fear shouldn’t hold you back, at least you are trying and aren’t afraid of falling or failing. It’s worse to not try at all to get what you want. It’s normal for many of us to feel out of control and suffocated in what we do in our professional life, but it’s never too late to make a change. You just need to stop, take a deep breath and realize that this is your life and you need to change it! How about making some positive changes in your life to get a fresh start or just reinforce your beliefs and aspirations.
Decide Your Preferences
Decide what’s most important to you in the moment, don’t try to do everything and please everyone, because that is just not possible, it only makes life more complicated. You can change your life by the choices you make in the short run or long run; it’s all about being unstuck, if you feel stuck get over it. If you feel resentment or guilt over your past decisions, now is the time to get over it and let go. Go slowly, and create a hierarchy of your goals, manage them in small and doable tasks, changing little things at a time really works.
Have A Trigger
Do you need a push, a trigger or dose of motivation to just do what you want? Whether it’s starting a new exercise regime, learning a new skill, a language may be there should be a trigger than just self-motivation. By taking up on new habits, behavior or activities you’re making some changes in your daily routine, you should have someone patting your back for your new interests. A trigger could be simply a self-belief that this is good for me and I want to do it, or I want to change my eating habits because it’s going to make healthy and feel great.
Making new changes can be a challenge in the beginning, it could be as drastic as quitting your job, moving on from a harsh relationship, to as simple as including whole grains in your diet. Life always has a way of getting in the way of our aspirations, don’t let any excuse come in your way, always have an alternate or back up plan. Everything is difficult in the beginning, just be patient, take a deep breath, and think you have to do it.
Self-criticism is lethal, so reward yourself for any minor or baby steps you’ve taken towards your goal or a lifestyle change. Celebrate little changes in your behavior, and be happy, acknowledge your efforts and be steadfast, slowly and gradually you’ll make positive changes in your life and move towards your bigger and better goals.
Help Others On The way To Success
Are you satisfied and happy with what you have achieved or still on the way? Share your blessings with someone who is under privileged or have much less than what you have. Helping out others gives a great feeling of fulfillment and purpose. Help others in any way possible, your friends, colleagues, neighbors, or anyone you think needs your help and attention.
