6 Signs it’s time for a change
Change is a way of life; however, change is also a hard, elusive process to manage effectively. Many people live a hesitant, tentative life, completely unaware of the strength and power that they must get much, much more out of living.
Don’t be one of them. Don’t wait until your life truly sucks before paying attention to the signs it’s definitely time for a change.
Not every bad moment makes for a bad life. Sometimes, a difficult moment is just that. And sometimes, feeling stuck turns out to be a good thing. Especially when it forces us to stop and really start to notice what’s happening around us.
Our ultimate success or failure depends completely on our ability to recognize whether something is just a bad moment or a cry for help.
Here are some signs it’s time for a change:
1. You tend to let minor irritations become huge problems
Free yourself from those annoying irritations that get you down. You’re freer than you give yourself credit for. You’re free to take control and refuse to react in the old ways. You’re free to feel anything you choose. You’re free to stop letting small annoyances take hold of you.
2. You’ve lost your passion
Your lifestyle no longer suits the person you have become. There is no spring in your steps, no joy in your heart. Life is just a boring day. You have forgotten the moment you jumped out of bed with a smile in your heart. External motivation will not last. Money and material wealth have their place, but if you want to live a passionate life, then the inner motivation will allow you to reach your goals. It is rarely exhausted before the dream comes true.
Finding something that makes you passionate is one of the secrets to a happy and fulfilling life. If you participate or actively seek your passion every day, you can live a brilliant life.
When you are involved in something you firmly believe in, the one you love becomes an interesting person. When you become the person who inspires the rest of us, it's hard not to experience a meaningful life.
3. You’ve forgotten you have choices
Learn to recognize when enough is enough. Sometimes, you must stop bumping your head against a well-known wall and move on. You don't have to continue living in the drama just because you are familiar.
Let yourself give up those people and situations, thoughts and feelings that are not conducive to nourishing growth or soul. let go. Let go now.
Commit to making choices that are conducive to personal growth, allowing yourself to open a new chapter in your life, and making choices that free you from the wrong path and the wrong purpose. Love yourself enough to choose freedom from anything that makes your life boring.
4. When you find yourself asking the wrong question it’s time to make a change
If you find yourself asking why me, more often than you ask what next. It's definitely time for a change. Don't be the victim of the story you tell yourself.
When things don't go as you want, don't blame others or the external environment. It's time to give that up.
You have, you’ve always had, the power to change things; to do what needs to be done to produce the results you want.
Be willing to ask yourself: what do I believe? What was I thinking? How was I feeling?
All that matters now is that you choose to be focused on the right questions, the right ideas, that feeling that there is always another option, a different way.
Different results will only be available to you as you make the necessary choices that lead you towards understanding that you are greater than any current problem.
5. You’ve forgotten that you’re deserving of the best
Not everyone sees you through the same eyes. But everyone deserves to have someone on their side who appreciates them just the way they are.
Feelings of worth will never flourish in an environment of criticism, where mistakes aren’t accepted and differences are downgraded.
If you’re surrounded by people who are critical and discouraging, the inspiration and hope that allows you to be in touch with your deepest potential are being crushed.
You deserve to be valued and appreciated. Surround yourself with those who have a constructive attitude towards you. That way you will be able to follow your path towards greater happiness and accomplish the achievement of your dreams. Do it today. You’re worth it.
6. It’s hard to stop obsessing over what was
Life has its losses and gains, ups and downs, chances to embrace happiness, to experience love and hope, and to fulfil your dreams.
Bad things do happen. No one is free from the pain of the past. We can choose to be frozen and focused on endless feelings of sadness for all that’s gone wrong in life or, turn our focus on the most precious gift we have…life.
Offer yourself love and kindness as you train yourself to take your attention away from what was and place it on what is and what’s going to be.
All you need to do is take it one step at a time. One little shift in attention today will shine a big, bright light on tomorrow. Remember you have always done the best you could with what you knew at the time. Celebrate that awareness. Trust me, it’s going to set you free.
