Creating Positive Change
Updated: Sep 6, 2022
There are times in a person’s life when they may feel stuck. They may be in a situation that is making them unhappy, however, they are lacking the motivation or extra push they need to help them create positive change in their life. Sometimes they are not even sure what it is that they want.
If a person is unclear as to what their goal is, they can take a look at each area of their life. Those areas may include Family, friends, health, career, finances, physical location, hobbies, and their love life. They can begin by determining on a scale of one to ten (ten being best) how they feel about each of those areas of their life. After they determine which area has the lowest number, they can then think about what they can do to make that area a “ten”.
Once a person has determined what their goal (or dream) is, they can then begin to focus on it by determining what steps they need to take in order to get there. One thing to consider is that even though a person may not be happy with their current situation, it was that situation that launched their dream. So it is important to appreciate where a person is in their life, which helps to create a positive mental attitude. This attitude can help to move a person in the right direction more quickly.
Also, it is a good idea for a person to surround themselves with other people who have similar goals. This support system can add more motivation, and can provide even more ideas that will help them to reach their goal. Determination is very important because the person 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, a person simply needs to keep trying and not give up.
