You don’t like where you are in life. Now what? What can you do to change your life if you’re unhappy with it? It’s actually simple. Not easy – but simple.
The first step is acceptance.
Admit to yourself that you’re not happy, and don’t for one second feel guilty about it. You deserve everything you want out of this life. And you only get one. This is your only shot! It’s okay if you’re unhappy – even if you have everything you need, even if you have more than most, and even if you’re rich. Happiness is not solely defined by socioeconomic status.
The second step is acknowledging that you chose the life you have
I know that’s hard to hear, but your life is a product of your action and inaction to this point. When I realized this and owned my part, it became so much easier to choose a different path. Both your action and your lack of action have contributed to the state of affairs you now find yourself in.
THIS SHOULD EMPOWER YOU.
Why? Because if you chose the life you have now, you can also choose something different.
YOU ARE NOT STUCK. YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM. YOU ARE NOT WHO YOU’VE BEEN IN THE PAST.
The third step to changing your life is figuring out what you want.
You can’t confidently advance in any direction if you haven’t determined a destination. You HAVE TO know where you want to go. You have to set a goal. And you have to figure out how to reach it.
