I suspect a lot of us might answer “Yes” to the second question. But what do we do about it? Many of us just continue living our lives day by day thinking that one day “my Life will feel great” or “what can I do about my situation anyway?” We fail to take Action.
Most of us are familiar with the quotation by Reinhold Niebuhr “God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Yes, there are things we cannot change such as the weather or the pull of gravity, but there are a lot of things we can improve upon or make changes to. We just need to take Action.
Begin by asking yourself these important questions “What is most important to me?” “What do I truly value?” Make a list of at least 6 items. (For example, Career, family, friends, spirituality, finance, fun, health, travel, new opportunities, legacy, recognition etc.)
Then ask yourself this question “On a scale of 1-10, how satisfied am I with each of these areas of my life?” If you score any of the items on your list less than 10, ask yourself “in order to increase my score by 1 point what do I need to do?” or “what do I need to change?”
Focus on making those small changes and you will notice a positive difference in your life.
