Make the change!
I am stuck in a professional rut and my job is just getting me down! How many times have I heard this from family, friends and colleagues? It’s probably one of the most frustrating situations we find ourselves in and it can have a huge impact on our mental state. Taking into consideration the amount of time we actually spend in work every week, if it’s not spent feeling good most of the time then there is something wrong. The good news is there is a way out, but it’s going to take time, dedication and perseverance. Most importantly you need to take that first step which is the decision that no matter what, you have had enough of this current state, and you are going to make the change.
“It is in your moments of decision that your future is Shaped”
In order to make the change, especially when you are feeling down it is important that you find what it is that motivates you, discover what will get you up in the morning with that reinvigorated hunger for success and overdose on it. What worked for me was motivational videos, life coach podcasts and audio advice downloads from motivational speakers such as Les Brown, Eric Thomas, Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar to name but a few. I listened to these affirmations first thing in the morning and at every possible moment during the day until it was engrained in my very being and I no longer needed a reminder. I could automatically turn it on when required, it was liberating, and I was now more motivated than ever and found change was much easier. Oh, by the way, completely ignore all the negative people, they will bring you down and they have no place in your new plan.
Make the change today and be the best you can be at whatever it is you want to be. Don’t put it off any longer, find your inner drive and your motivation and go for it. We are only on this planet for a short period of time and we owe it to ourselves to fulfil all of our dreams no matter how far away they seem to be. Make the decision today, no excuses, find a way!
