Only one thing in this world is constant, and that is change. Changing your life is both scary and exciting as well, the only aim is to grow in any way. If you want to change your life the first thing you need to change is, to change yourself. If you are not where you want to be in your life, change it. It sounds easier but tough to be done, right?. Change is taking place constantly whether we like it or not, we do not have control over it. You can either resist it or move with it. It is rightly said EVERYTHING STARTS AND ENDS WITH YOU.
Most people come to a point one day where they have to make a change in their life to either grow personally or professionally, but it’s hard to figure out when you’re ready to make that change. So how do you know when it’s time that you are ready to change your life?. The truth maybe there is at least one sign that you might be ignoring or not even noticing.
1. You Are No More Motivated
We all have some goals in our life that wake us early in the morning even working late at night. That motivation makes us so dedicated to our work that social events are no more important to us, we avoid them due to work. It always comes from our motivation to succeed either professionally or personally, but once the drive is missing, then you cant keep going and you will lose your motivation. It may happen that we may not feel the same dive that we felt earlier, then it can be a sign. It can be your need or want that has changed. Most important thing is that if you don’t feel the same motivation any longer, then it’s time to do something about it.
We always say we should keep going even when it’s tough, but it’s okay to change or redefine yourself. It’s not about stopping up but thinking again that if we really need the same thing. Sometimes we find out that we want the same thing, but the way you’re going about its not working for you. It doesn’t mean that we have failed. It simply means you are ready to focus on what matters: YOU
2. Double check every day – Are you happy?
We all want a happy life for which we work so hard it’s normal to be upset or feel a bit low. It’s really normal, but if you feel unhappy every day and usually without knowing the reason – it’s a sign.
There may be sometimes people or work may be the reason for our unhappiness. We have to accept the reason but, we don’t have to accept being unhappy. We don’t feel that kick that we used to feel prior, just check your routine schedule and what are you doing in your daily life. How many things do you do for yourself and how many do you do to please someone else? It is rightly said you can make others happy only if you are happy. So find the things that make you happy. It is not being misjudged as selfish or lazy, it’s just the cure to do something for yourself. So now make a list of things that makes you happy it’s okay to be selfish.
3. People Around You Are Changing
We all are unique in our own way we should not compare ourselves with others on daily basis, it’s okay to take a look once in a while. The people around us often reflect back on us. If people around us have suddenly changed who meeting you and going out with you on daily basis and suddenly stop doing so, maybe they have started focusing on work. It might be a sign.
This by no means that you should also change your life if you’re still feeling fulfilled and good about it. But if you turn your head and start noticing a change around you and it makes you rethink things, it’s probably a sign of you being ready to change as well.
A healthy life shouldn’t be all fun and games, but if you feel bored on daily basis, then it could be a sign. There’s a difference between waking up on a Sunday and not knowing what to do and waking up every day and feeling bored.
Maybe your routine life feels no more fun or challenging to you, you feel bored with what you doing. Just go and check on are feeling bored or just need something more in life? Humans are run by habits and routines, which makes it tough to change them. It also makes us stay in a bad situation much longer than needed.
5. Are you feeling stressed?
Today life is full of stress, it is probably one of the most signs that you’re in need of change. This is the hardest thing to react to because when you are stressed, you don’t feel like doing anything changed.
There are many things by which we can relieve stress it just we have to check which suits us the most. It may be meditation, laughing, a long drive, spending time with loved ones, sitting alone, watching funny movies, etc.
6. Are You Feared?
Everybody lives with fear. They’re afraid of losing someone. They’re afraid of losing their job. They’re afraid of making the wrong decision. They’re afraid of a lot of things because life is very scary. It’s okay to be scared for a limited period of time but it’s not okay to live in constant fear.
When you are scared it will be tough to take any decision about a change in your life, now you have to decide if you want to stay in fear or want to overcome it.
Try to visualize the future where there is no more fear in your life and use it as a ladder to make a hard decision now and change your life for the better.
7. There Is No More Excitement in Your Life
Human needs continuous excitement in their daily lives because we will feel scared, stressed, and unhappy at times. If you are sure that there is no more excitement in your life, then it’s a sign that you’re ready for a change.
What you used to feel about in the past may not excite you anymore. In that state, you need the change so that you may feel the same excitement as before. Once you decide to change your life it won’t be easy in the beginning. Changing your life can be tough, but it’s worth it.
