The one constant thing in our life is change. We cannot avoid it, and the more we resist change the tougher our life becomes.
Change can come into our lives as a result of a crisis, as a result of choice, or by chance. We are all faced with having to make a choice – do we make the change or not? I believe it is always better to make changes in your life when you choose to rather than being forced to.
Acting on our power of choice provides us with more opportunity to change our lives for the better. The more opportunities we create to change our lives, the more fulfilled and happier our lives become!
Here are 5 things that you can do NOW to change your life FOREVER!
Let Go Of Your Regrets!
Regrets will only hold you back in life. Regrets are events of the past and if you spend all your time thinking about the past you will miss the present and the future.
You cannot change what you did or did not do in the past, so let it go.
The only thing you have control over now is how you choose to live your present and future life.
I had a heap of regrets that were holding me back in my life. I came across the “Balloon Exercise” and got rid of my regrets for good.
What is it? It’s simple — blow up as many balloons as you need. On each balloon write a regret and then let the balloon go. As the balloon drifts off into the sky say goodbye to that regret forever.
A simple and powerful exercise that works and can change how you live your life.
Do Things That Scare The Crap Out Of You!
This is all about you choosing to step out of your comfort zone and see limitations from a different perspective.
Make a list of scary things that you would kind of like to do but are too afraid to. Put a plan in place and then go do them. Never stop doing scary things because if you do your life will become one of complacency and comfort.
It's Time To Face Your Fears!
It’s easy to ignore our fears and hope that they will go away. Unfortunately, it does not work like that.
If you want to change your life, learn to master your fears so they can’t control you any longer. Our fears are only thoughts in our minds that are not real but over time we have become to believe that they are true.
It is our fears in life that stop us from living our life to the fullest. We know when our fears are controlling our lives because we feel discontent, dissatisfied and unfulfilled.
Once we face our fears we take back our power to choose how we want to live our lives and when we do this we change our lives forever.
The only person who is going to create change in your life is you! And to create that change you have to like yourself.
There will be times in your life where you will face rejection and there will be people who will not like you that much. Accepting who you are and loving yourself helps you to move forward in your life.
Putting yourself down all the time and wishing you could be better will only lead you to a life of unhappiness and discontent.
Find your courage, love yourself and step out and do something crazy. Don’t worry about what anyone thinks or whether it is the right thing to do. In your heart if it feels right, act on it and go create the life you love.
Live In The Moment!
Many of us tend to think that the grass is greener on the other side. Often, we get to the other side of the fence we find that this is not so.
The motivation to change our lives comes from our desire to be happy. We are often so busy focusing on our pursuit of happiness that we miss the joy of actually living in the moment.
Our desire to have happiness in our lives is a desire of a future state not of the present. We become so consumed with all our problems and discontent in the present we miss the precious beauty of the moment.
Sitting on the beach eating an ice-cream with your best friend or partner is a moment of happiness. Appreciating and showing gratitude on a daily basis is experiencing happiness in the moment. Helping those in need brings joy and happiness to us.
This is what living our life in the moment is all about – don’t miss these moments because you are too busy focusing on your pursuit of happiness.
