Ready to make the change?


Change is a natural part of life. Whether we want it or not, change will be part of our lives at one point or another. Sometimes, change can be easy, but often it can be challenging, and even scary. However, if you are reading this, it means that you have made a change or are considering making one, and that is a big step forward!

Change can take many forms, and it can happen in all areas of your life. Maybe you have changed jobs or moved to a new town or city. Perhaps you have ended a relationship or started a new one. Or maybe you have made changes to your health, diet, or fitness routine.

Whatever your change may be, it is essential to understand that change is a process. It takes time, effort, and patience. It can be tempting to give up when the going gets tough, but remember that change is not a destination, it's a journey.

The first step in making a change is to identify what you want to change. Be specific about what you want to achieve and why it's important to you. Write it down, (journal!) tell someone about it, or create a vision board. The more clarity you have about your goal, the more likely you are to achieve it.

Once you have identified your goal, it's time to create a plan. Break your goal down into smaller, more manageable steps. And make sure each step is achievable. Set yourself up for success! Celebrate each small win, as it will give you the motivation to keep going.

It's also essential to have support during the change process. Talk to friends and family, about your goals and progress. Join a support group or find an accountability partner. Having someone to encourage you and keep you on track can make all the difference.

Another essential factor in making a successful change is to be kind to yourself. Change can be challenging, and it's okay to struggle at times. Be patient with yourself and acknowledge your progress, no matter how small. Remember that setbacks are a natural part of the process, and they do not mean that you have failed, you can even give yourself a day or two to just dwell...and then... get up and keep going! Learn from those setbacks, adjust your plan if necessary, and  keep moving forward.

As you work towards your goal, it's essential to stay focused and motivated. Visualise yourself achieving your goal and how it will feel when you get there. Use positive affirmations, listen to inspiring music, or read motivational books. Whatever will work for you! But most importantly, surround yourself with people who support and encourage you.

Finally, celebrate your success when you achieve your goal. Whether it's a small or significant accomplishment, take the time to acknowledge and reward yourself for your hard work. Celebrating your success will motivate you to keep going and make more changes in your life.

And just one last little piece of advice....Don't wait for change to happen to you! as most of the time, specially if we are not ready, we end up resisting it, which in turn brings pain and suffering.

Instead do what my amazing friend Leina Broughton says :

"Be the creative director of your life" 

Create the change you want to see in your life!!!
