What is your cage? Your prison? That thing that is weighing you down, making your life heavy, making you feel smothered, imprisoned and trapped?
What is making you feel unhappy, tired, disconnected, and unfulfilled?
…you could change your life and feel courageous, supported and confident?
…you could connect with yourself and find out what you truly want?
…you could find joy and purpose in your life and your work?
Well, you can make those, what if’s a reality?
Whatever it is, you can make a decision to change it now, so that you can enjoy the life you dream about that lives in your heart.
Sometimes, you just need to take action instead of continuing to pile up dreams without doing anything more about them. Making a big change in a matter of hours may not be possible, but you can at least get started on the path to change.
See, we are all in search of “lasting happiness”. But happiness doesn’t just “happen”. It is something you choose and create. You simply need a few powerful new tools in your toolkit that you can reliably and practically use to help you create the inner feelings and outer results you want.
Take a moment to feed your soul with a few words that will inspire your journey through the day. The self-reflection questions are there for you to use any way you need them. For reflection, for meditation, for prompting a journal entry. If you enjoy these daily affirmations, please share it with your friends who could use some positivity in their own lives!
I Make Changes
I remain flexible and adapt to changing conditions. I make positive changes in my life and I keep moving forward.
I question my assumptions. I examine any distorted thinking that holds me back. I overhaul my attitude and focus on what I can control.
I start small. I break big projects down into smaller tasks. If I want to change jobs, I move from one step to the next. I inventory my skills. I research opportunities. I network to follow up on leads. I rehearse my interview responses.
I experiment. I try out as many approaches as it takes to reach my goals. I give myself credit for testing my abilities instead of sitting on the sidelines. I learn from each attempt so I can keep advancing toward my goals.
I create new habits. I save a portion of each paycheck and bring a brown bag lunch to work. I eat more vegetables and join a gym.
I reach out for support. Quitting smoking or working out is easier when I have a buddy. I let my friends and family know what they can do to help me.
I remember that I deserve to be happy.
Today, I embrace changes that enrich my life. When I open my eyes to doing things differently, I broaden my experiences. I learn and grow.
- How do I renew my motivation when I find it difficult to make a change?
- What is the relationship between change and growth?
- What would my life be like without any changes?
Here’s to leading a life of purpose and living with passion!
With much love and gratitude,
