If You Want to Make Massive Change in Your Life
If you’re ready to change your life: your career, relationships, health, and amount of joy you experience daily, then you must start by changing how you approach life, or in other words, the attitude you have about the people, places, and circumstances in your life. The outward circumstances will only change once your mindset changes. If you approach the same problem with the mindset that created it, you won’t be able to see the solution. An internal shift must occur prior to any external change.
So, here’s the rub; so far, your mindset has been fixed. Your current perception is an accumulation of your parents’ limiting beliefs, your gender, what your education, the messages you picked up from movies, and the images and beliefs subconscious picked up from what you experienced, much of which, you’re unaware. So, what that means is, you may have limiting beliefs about money and how it's a real struggle to acquire wealth, but you're probably unaware of this belief, as well as how it's affecting your life. What's holding you back, for the most part, is that you have unhealed trauma, negative memories, and fears. You have a dream, but you procrastinate. You want to work out, but you’re too tired. You want a great relationship, but you’re shy and a bit insecure. You want to be happy, but you don’t even know what that means. Where do you even begin?
Here’s the key: You have to be willing to shift your perception, to look at things differently, and to approach the same people, places, and circumstances in your life from a different angle.
You have to be willing to let go of the voice in your head that says you can’t do it and you're not good enough, the part of you that complains, isn’t willing to accept responsibility, blames your parents, or has limiting beliefs, such as there aren’t any good men out there, or you’ll never reach your desired weight. You have to be willing to be more positive, confident, and loving. You have to identify all the places in your life where you’re not being your best self and be willing to change.
You have to dig into your inner-world. You have to sit in meditation and prayer and ask for guidance as to why you’re self-sabotaging, procrastinating, and inviting people into your life who aren’t loving. You have to be willing to let go of relationships that are no longer serving you. You have to be willing to say no when it doesn’t feel right. You have to be willing to step out of your comfort zone. You have to take that dance class when you’re scared, quit your unfulfilling job even thought it feels safe and comfortable, and forgive that person who hurt you.
You have to be willing to be braver than you ever thought, and this doesn’t mean jumping out of planes, it means doing things that scare you, like opening you’re heart when you’ve been hurt in the past, or following your creative dreams, even when you don't feel good enough. You have to be willing to give before you can get, to accept before you can receive, and to take responsibility for everything that happens in your life.
You have to be willing to stop caring about who likes or accept you and learn to accept yourself. You have to be willing to shut off the television and go outside, to sit in silence and look at the sky and feel truly grateful for your life, because even if you think that it sucks, you have breath, and you’re here, and all of this will end faster than you really think.
You have to learn how to say what you really think and how to sit in your emotions, rather than pushing them down and choosing to over-eat, over-drink, or over-spend as consolation for emotional pain you're unwilling to face. You have to learn how to say thank you, and I love you, and I allow this moment to be exactly as it is without anything needing to be different for me to be happy..
As you shift your mindset and learn how to show up in your life differently, your life will shift. Your positive energy will attract likeminded people, and your willingness to be confident and take inspired action will allow you to fulfill your dreams and create a life worth living. A little bit of willingness to change is the precursor to every transformation. If you want to make massive change, start today, and start small. Be willing to shift your perception, and be willing to let go of whatever is standing in the way of your happiness. It takes less than you believe to make a radical shift in your life and overall well-being.
