Are you yearning to make some real changes this year? I’m not talking about making a list of resolutions, I’m talking about creating realistic action steps. Does thinking about making changes in your life overwhelm you? Is it something you tried to do in the past and failed at? Maybe you are simply tackling too much at once. Try one small step at a time.
Start with an idea or a vision of what you want to bring into your life. What would it look like if you made some changes? Can you picture your surroundings? Let’s say for example, you want to experience more peace, feel calm in stressful situations, or just plain be relaxed more of the time. What kind of environment are you spending time in? Are there changes you can make to promote a sense of calm? Here’s an example of what I mean:
I remember answering incoming calls in a tiny office space/storage room with no windows. One day instead of lunch, I headed to a poster shop to find visions of serenity. I came back with 3 beautiful photos of ocean scenes. You know, white beaches palm trees, unlimited horizons to gaze at – kind of like the Corona beer commercials. That one small improvement in my work space enabled me to “breathe” easier and put a smile into my voice in responding to callers. It was a quick and inexpensive action step toward changing my environment for the better and resulted in my feeling more relaxed and optimistic in my job. That one small action step created immediate change for me!
What do you want to change? Do you want to have more joy, peace, love, achievement, success, health, or wealth? Whatever it is that you want to bring into your life, I challenge you to take a least one action step in the next 30 days to help it to happen! (and I’d love to hear about it!) –Dee
