There are times in life when you may feel stuck. You may be in a situation that is making you unhappy, however you are lacking the motivation or extra push needed to help you create positive change in your life. Sometimes you are not even sure what it is that you want.
If you are unclear as to what your goal is, you can take a look at each area of you life. Those areas may include: family, friends, health, career, finances, physical location, hobbies, and maybe even your love life. You can begin by determining on a scale of one to ten (ten being best) how you feel about each of those areas of your life. After you determine which area has the lowest number, you can then think about what you can do to make that area a “ten”.
Once you have determined what your goal (or dream) is, you can then begin to focus on it by determining what steps you need to take in order to get there. One thing to consider is that even though you may not be happy with your current situation, it was that situation that launched your dream. So it is important to appreciate where you are in your life, which helps to create a positive mental attitude. This attitude can help to move you in the right direction more quickly.
Also, it is a good idea for you to surround yourself with other people who have similar goals. This support system can add more motivation, and can provide even more ideas which will help you to reach your goal. Determination is very important, because the one who did not reach their goal is usually the one who gave up before they reached the “finish line”. (Consider that Thomas Edison tried 700 times before inventing the light bulb!) Sometimes, you simply need to keep trying and not give up.
If you could use some extra motivation, a personal life or wellness coach can help you to find out what you want, and can help inspire you to get there. Also, a hypnotherapist can provide positive visualization, which helps people to reach their goal more quickly by using the power of the subconscious mind. Combining the two techniques can really help you to create positive change in your life.
