Look at your life from a new perspective

What steps do you need to take now?

If you want to change something in your life that you don’t like then you have to start to look at your life from a new perspective because unless you do so, life and whatever you don’t like in it may continue unchanged however much you wish for it to change, the secret is to do things differently.

Do things you  hadn’t considered previously by:

Setting  new boundaries.

Habits are the way you define your life. They are your boundaries, the way you know when to start and when to stop, how you decide what doing something actually means to you and how you behave each day. All of these things can be changed if you decide you want life to be different.  You could start with changing something such as the time you get up in the morning or the time you go to bed. A change in one part of your life makes it easier for you to make changes in another part.

Trying something new.

Not only new boundaries but also what you do and how you do it. Try doing something you haven’t done before or approach solving a problem or challenge in a new way. Notice how friends, family or work colleagues do the same tasks, especially if they do them more quickly or more efficiently than you, and learn to do the same yourself. When you find  new ways to achieve the desired outcomes you will be motivated to get more done yourself.

Changing your perspective.

Notice what seems important and what doesn’t seem important and then switch your feelings around so that your perspective about them both changes. This may be useful to enable you to understand the world from someone else’s viewpoint and thus understand them better. This in turn is useful when you want to change your life so you can make changes that are beneficial to others as much as you.

Stopping something which is unnecessary.

Much of what you do, or at least some of it may not actually be necessary at all. So re-assess all of what you do each day and ask yourself if you need to continue in the same way and what you could stop doing altogether. If you take a metaphorical step back in this way and observe yourself from an outsider’s perspective then you will gain a greater insight into ways you waste time by doing unnecessary tasks.

What do you owe yourself?

You owe it to yourself to get the most out of your life.

The worst thing that you can do is to look back over your life and say “I wish I had done this” or “I wish I had done that”

Creating a vision and a mission of what you want out from your life will provide you with some direction and momentum to move forward.

Do you feel as though you are stuck in a rut or lack some direction and purpose to your life? Are you just drifting along from one day to the next?

What is your life all about?

Do you let events happen to you rather than going out and making them happen?

When you have a compelling vision, you will feel good about yourself. You know where you are going life and have a purpose to it all.

When you feel in control of your life and events you will naturally feel more confident and motivated to achieve more.

Are you in the right place for change?

Where you are physically and emotionally can have a great influence on what you are able to achieve, whether this is in relation to day to day success or achieving a lifetime goal of changing your life and your lifestyle in major ways.

Could it be true that your environment can have such an important impact on the success or failure of your plans? The answer is most definitely  a resounding ‘yes’!
Let’s  consider  where you are in the world: are you in an urban or rural place and how would these affect you? Consider how and where you are able to work and concentrate best. You may be someone who needs complete silence or would better benefit form interaction and support from other people around you. You may prefer working in a high rise office block or appreciate being able to get into or go out into fresh air during your day to day activities. This means that id you find yourself in the opposite sort of place than  your ideal that you may not function so well and your achievements can be diminished.

Your physical space is important and can its suitability also depends on the  air temperature and the climate. Consider too the convenience or not of how you reach your place of work or the space where you want to carry out  the changes you want to make.

Not only physical space but you emotional mindset is important too and it’s vital that you are in the right mindset for change. You need to be feeling very positive about the benefits you will experience when you make the changes you want to make so that you can engage in those changes with passion and enthusiasm.

If you mindset is doubtful or actually negative then your chance of success will be severely
reduced.
It helps to get into the right emotional space if you can gain support from at least one person, whether this is a close friend or family member or someone who you’ve not met before such as a coach or a mentor.
People sometimes their failure to succeed with the statement that they were not ‘in the right place’ at the time. So this an important factor for success. If you really want to succeed and have failed to do so until now then consider going to another place, whether that is a big as another country or as small as going into another room in the same building, or changing the arrangement of the furniture in the same room.
