“How do I change my life?” This is a common question that people ask. Refusing change will only make our lives harder. Instead of trying to avoid it altogether, think about how you can adjust your life to accommodate the changes that are happening around you.
We are constantly surrounded by change and it is the thing that has the most dramatic effect on our lives. It is not possible to avoid it. The change will come to you, challenge, and change your life.
We can see the possibility of change through a crisis or a choice. In every situation, we face the dilemma of making a decision: Do we make the change?
Unexpected events can’t be avoided. However, we can choose how we respond. Positive change can be achieved through our power of choice.
We have more power to transform our lives by acting on our power of decision. The more we make it possible to improve our lives, the happier and fulfilled our lives will become.
1. Find Meaning
Spend some time contemplating what is important to you and why.
What is the most important thing you would like to do in your lifetime? What are you pursuing? What makes it possible to be happy?
Your meaning in your life determines the direction you want to go. You’ll spend your whole life lost in the void of meaning.
2. Create a Dream Board
When we were little, we daydreamed all the time. We were skilled at visualizing the future we wanted to be as children. We believed in the possibility of anything.
As we grew up, our ability for dreaming became diminished. Once we felt like achieving them was impossible, our dreams became hidden.
A dream board is an excellent way to believe in yourself again. Every day, you can see your dreams on a dream board. It will remind you to refocus all your energy toward the things that matter most to you.
3. Set Goals
Once you have identified the priorities in your life as well as your vision for your dream life, it is time you took action and established your long-term medium, and short-term objectives. By setting these goals, you can realize your dreams.
Your goals may change. Your goals can change as life happens. Be flexible with your goals. When you’re trying to change your life, it’s the small things that make the difference.
4. Lose Your Regrets
Regrets only hinder your ability to live a fulfilling life. If you dwell on the past all the time, you will miss the future and the present.
You can’t change the past. Only you now have control over how you live your current and future lives. You can challenge any negative thoughts you hold about your past.
For fun and to visualize letting go, you could write down all your regrets on a piece o paper. You could then either burn it or place it in your backyard.
5. Do Something that Scares you
It’s about you taking a risk and looking at your limitations from a completely different perspective.
Public speaking can be frightening. I was terrified of public speaking. I knew I wanted motivational speakers. Toast Masters helped me conquer my fear and I became a Toast Master.
My first speech turned out to be terrible. My knees were weak, I was shaking and couldn’t stop shaking. I finished the speech and it was better than I expected. I chose not to quit and now I’m a motivational speaker.
