It may seem easier to stay in the comfort zone of your life now and dream of how things could be different, rather than to actually initiate a change. However change is a part of life and sometimes it’s necessary to make that change to have a more positive and fulfilling life.
Making that change can be particularly difficult when the situation you’re in is quite comfortable and the alternative is unknown. For example leaving a job you don’t enjoy but pays you well, or ending a relationship in which you’re stuck in a rut but not really unhappy.
The fear of change applies to smaller life decisions as well. You may have realised that your a people pleaser and want to change your behaviours, but a fear of how others will react may stop you. Or perhaps you’ve decided to get fit but the fear of failing means you don’t even get started.
This uncertainty about what will happen next maybe scary but if you focus on all the positive things that might happen instead you will find making the first step easier. It’s worth remembering the statement;
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got”
So next time you find yourself saying “I wish I could…..” choose to say “I will…..”
