Sometimes I feel stuck, bored, frustrated. It’s not that I don’t like the life I live; it’s just sometimes I suspect there’s something more, some greater sense of meaning or excitement, new connections, new adventures, new possibilities. The truth is those possibilities are within my reach. I may not be able to quit my job or develop new skills while I sleep; but every day contains countless opportunities, all dictated by the choices I make. Some of those choices may seem inconsequential. They’re the little things, after all. Why not do it the way I always do it? Why not stay in my comfort zone when it’s just so comfortable here? I should do it for the possibility. The possibility of, if I make one minor change, I may set the stage for major fulfillment. Sometimes even the smallest shift in thinking or doing can create the biggest opportunity. So here is how I plan to get started:
I will challenge my beliefs about what I can and can’t do.
Look for opportunities in a tough situation. Avoid the victim mentality, and opt instead for a “ready for new beginnings” attitude.
Remove the things from my life that doesn’t serve me to make room for something better and new.
Commit to something I always say I’ll do but always fail to start
Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Positive energy creates positive results.
Say yes to something I always talk myself out of.
So how will you open your world to new possibilities?
