How a small decision can turn your life around
Updated: May 12
You want to change your life, your situation or your health perhaps, but where do you start?
Often people don't make changes to their life because it just seems, well, too hard. The change that needs to be made takes action, determination and willpower...it's often easier to stay where you are because it's comfortable. Even if this 'comfort' will cause you absolute dramas in the future, at this present moment it's easy...
One of the issues is because you are looking at the BIG change that needs to happen, rather looking at small incremental steps to get to that big change or goal.
Say you have been thinking of gaining a new qualification or degree...you're thinking 3-4 years is crazy, I dont have the time and I dont have the money. WELL let me tell you! you do have the time, we all have exactly the same amount of time in our days, the difference is WHAT you choose to do with it.
The time will go by regardless of whether you make it useful to your life
So it takes you 3-10 years to get a degree, the years will have passed by anyhow! at least you have something at the end of it that can perhaps change the next 30 years of your life. TIME well spent I say.
Small steps add up to monumental changes in weeks, months and years. Just one little change per day can alter your mindset, your health, your relationship and your career.
If you are in your car driving and you see a shocking accident ahead...
will you continue on the same course and crash?...or will you just slightly change direction...?
So how do you turn your life around?...
1. You make a decision on what you want to change
2. You seriously reflect on WHY you want to change
3. You write down the end goal or big picture
4. You write down the small, baby steps you can take to get to the end goal
5. You take action TODAY, just one small step
1. You write down what you need to STOP doing and STOP doing them
2. You learn to say NO to things that don't serve you or the big picture
3. You surround yourself with positive people
4. You 'feed' yourself with positive news, books, videos etc.
So yes, small decisions can have huge impact on your happiness and your life...have a GO today
