Time for Change

For some, making changes in one’s life can be seen as an impossible task.  That’s because we focus on the totality of the problem at hand and not necessarily on the component parts of the problem.  The old saying goes that you eat an elephant one bite at a time.  How true that is.

However, the process of bringing changes into our lives is more complex than that.  Here are three questions that I have found very useful in helping myself and my clients to bring clarity to this somewhat complex issue:

Do I want to change this at this point in my life?  Yes/No

Can I change this?  Yes/No

When will I change this?

First, you need to decide that YES, I do want this change in my life now.  Second, while looking inside, you realize that yes, I CAN make this change.  You can then call on your own internal resources or ask for some outside help with this.   You then need to decide WHEN you want to start making these changes and then taking the action steps to put all of this into motion.

I live by the moto that Struggle is Optional.  If something is not going well in your life, change it.  We all have the power to create the life that we want.  We live in an abundant world and all the resources are there to assist us.  Decide and take Action…Now.  Don’t wait for that perfect moment when all will be right.  Things are never right.  The right time for change is now.
