Life works in mysterious ways. We all have our own path and lessons that we learn along the way. Everyone is given their own set of lessons to learn, struggles to overcome, and experiences which makes up their journey. With that many people know when it is time for a change or to set out on the path of self-improvement or personal development. For many, this process of knowing is easy.
For others it is less evident. For some the is a path to change is a little more pained. The struggles become the witness needed to find one’s path again. Some people feel lost in the day to day and while they might desire for a vibrant life, they do not know where to begin or where to start on the path of change.
Change is a process. While the idea of change is exciting for some, for many the idea of change is a scary process. It might represent leaving behind the past or letting go of something that many some are not ready to let go of. Working through this process of letting go is important for the change to occur.
Also, knowing the importance of letting go for one’s own personal development is integral for other changes to develop and happen.
If you are wanting a life change, the first part is to ask yourself a series of questions to see if you are ready. Also, look for patterns, situations, or feelings that may be holding you back from making a change.
Fear is one of the main reasons that people do not change. They fear the unknown, what the life change will produce, and sometimes people fear loss.
Overall, the future is unknown and people in general tend to stick with what they know rather than challenging themselves to change. The courageous seek change and those who challenge themselves internally typically find that change is good and the path to transformation.
In a mini-exercise to see where you are, ask yourself the following questions to figure out whether you are ready for a life change.
Do you love your life? If yes, great. If not, why?
Are you doing things daily which make you happier or contribute to your overall well-being, or joy?
Do you love your job, career, or business?
Are you in a happy relationship or marriage?
If you are single, do you love yourself currently or do you long for a partner to complete your life?
What would you like to do differently in your life?
If you could change one thing in your life what would it be?
What did you find out from this mini-exercise? Are you ready for a change? What would you like to change in your life?
