It’s never too late to change your life regardless of your age or circumstances. When you have a very deep desire to do this, nothing will stand in your way.
There are so many options available to all of us once we determine specifically what we desire. This one decision opens up a wealth of new ideas and opportunities for us, to which otherwise we would have been oblivious.
Self Knowledge Starts With Self Honesty
In order to discover our true reason for being here right here and now, we must be honest with ourselves. No excuses. No sugar coating things. Once we accept fully what is happening in our life right this very moment, we are able to make the progress we desire. On the other hand, when we lie to ourselves, we put the brakes on to any advancement in the areas of our lives in which we seek to improve.
It is so much easier to settle for things and make excuses for why things are not better. We can spend as much time as we want doing that but things will not change, and our inner frustrations and regrets will still exist, and sometimes increase.
All of us have so very much to give and contribute to others and the world, that it is just a matter of waking up and stop playing small. When we were young we had unlimited dreams, and we were just waiting to grow up and make them real. What happened? Well, we bought into a lot of nonsense which we were taught by well-meaning and not so well meanings folks along the way.
When we allow ourselves to be authentic and vulnerable we open ourselves to a whole new horizon of possibilities. It is not important for us to know the exact possibilities right now, rather we just need to head in that direction by being who we truly are and not pretending to be someone else just to fit in or to avoid rejection.
There is Power in Vulnerability as we are proud to be authentic and live our purpose. We are not afraid to show our true feelings and thoughts as we know that is the only way we can truly contribute to others.
When we are honest with ourselves about our strengths and weaknesses and where we are at this moment in time, we learn so much about ourselves which strengthens and empowers us moving forward.
Making A Decision To Change
Change of any sort starts with a decision. We have the power to make choices and decide what we want to do in life. When we were kids we craved for this power. Now that we have it, how well do we use it?
Granted many decisions along the way in our lives were made unconsciously to some extent as we bought into a lot of false assumptions put out there by our teachers and want-to-be role models. The educational system really does not do a very good job in preparing young minds to prosper and succeed. The success rates do not need to be as low as they are.
It’s so important for us to tap our Power in the Present Moment, and make decisions Consciously, which will get us headed in the direction we want to go, and not heading off in circles and ending up in places and circumstances which keep us confused and wondering how we got there.
All we need is the Desire to Change and it will happen regardless if we believe it or not right now. The changes will occur over time because we will Know and not believe it is possible. When we know something, it happens. When we believe something, it may or may not happen as our assumptions or beliefs may be wrong.
So let;s make a decision right this moment to change our lives to head in the direction which is most satisfying and produces the results we desire.
So What Do We Truly Want At This Point In Our Life
It doesn’t matter what stage in life we are, if we want something different we Can Have It. Never let anyone tell you anything different, because they will be lying to you regardless if they realize it or now.
Spend some time reflecting and soul-searching on what is most important to you, and then make a decision to head in that direction. Once you take the first small steps on your new path, the people and resources needed to assist you along the way will begin to show up.
It is important to surround yourself with people who are supportive of your new venture; the ones who are there to encourage and assist. You only want to hear what’s possible and not what doesn’t work. You’ll figure out what works and what doesn’t on your own, so you don’t need people telling you what can’t be done.
