You don’t have to wait until New Years Eve to make some resolutions if you want to change your life. With all of the great information now available with a simple query on any search engine, you can quickly find some great insights on how you can improve your life. For instance, you could find a life coach who will assist you developing the change you want.
We recently interviewed life coach Daniel Adams who works with many clients around the world on supporting them to achieve their goals and he said that the number one reason people don’t take more action is because they are afraid of change and the unknown. In the article, he clearly noted how many people want to create a better life, but they feel stuck because they feel overwhelmed with the stress and anxiety that comes with having to make the changes necessary. Because of this, he decided to round up some great tips and resource that could be very beneficial for people.
1. Read Inspiring Quotes About Life
The first thing he suggests is reading inspirational quotes and affirmations every morning before starting your day. Affirmations are just brief, uplifting sentences that you repeat to yourself every day, if you’re familiar with them. He said that by doing so, it can help sharpen your mind and set the tone so that you feel motivated and inspired to take the necessary actions to move forward in your life.
2. Travel the world
If it’s possible, then you should make sure you fit some traveling in. Okay, so you might not have the time or the funds to go on a round-the-world trip, but it certainly is a truism that ‘travel broadens the mind’.
3. Slow down
To change your life, you need time to think and reflect. If you are always busy, you won’t have the time to think about your life let alone taking action to change it. You won’t have the room to apply the tips below. So slow down and make the room for change.
4. Let Go Of Your Regrets
Regrets will only hold you back in life. Regrets are events of the past and if you spend all your time thinking about the past you will miss the present and the future. You cannot change what you did or did not do in the past, so let it go. The only thing you have control over now is how you choose to live your present and future life.
5. Choose the right support network
Change can be lonely when you try to handle it all by yourself. It helps to recruit people who can act as sounding boards and help you stay motivated. There are no brownie points for going it alone.
The truth is that changing your life can be a fun and exciting experience so long as you do not take it too serious or try to do too much. This is why many people work with a life coach who can help guide them along their journey step by step. Many coaches use a process called chunking which is designed to make it easier so that you don’t feel overwhelmed.
Overcoming Fears & Blocks
Another reason why people look to life coaching to support them is that they become overwhelmed with fears and anxieties that come up along the way. Very often when individuals want to create dramatic changes, it is going to force them to have to face many insecurities in their life.
Those who often get stuck or paralyzed because they have a hard time making decisions or taking action do so because they lack the ability to see what it is they need to do and begin to overthink the problem. This is where “paralysis by analysis” can set in and drive the individual to enter into a downward spiral where they will more than likely want to give up on themselves.
But with a life coach who can support you, they can offer the assistance necessary to help bring clarity to any situation so that you don’t get stuck and can feel free to move forward more effortlessly. This is why so many athletes and high level executives employ coaches so that they can help bring out the best in them while transforming fears.
