Moving on from the comfort zone in your life can be incredibly difficult but if you have already realised that you need to move on then you are past the first hurdle. Noticing that you need to move on to something new is difficult in itself but sadly that is the easy part. There are certain things in life that you need to cut out and stop letting them effect you and this post is about those things and how to combat them.
Stop letting the opinions of others around you effect how you feel about yourself. The only opinion that should matter is your own so start doing whats best for you instead of putting other people first. You will quickly find that the people who matter don’t care and the people that do don’t matter.
Don’t be ashamed of failures in your past because your past is not your future and if you didn’t fail at anything then you wouldn’t learn. I think that as long as you learn from your failures and mistakes then they were worth it. Focus on your life now rather than your past and you will feel a lot happier with yourself.
Decide what you want from your life and don’t be indecisive. Once you have made a decision about what you want from your life really work for it. You are never going to leave where you are right now if you can’t decide where you want to be in the future.
Once you have decided which goals you want to reach don’t procrastinate. You can either accept how your life currently is or you can take responsibility for your life and change it for the better. Write your goals down and put them somewhere that you will see them everyday and don’t stop working for them lil you have reached them.
Live everyday to the fullest possible because you never know when it’s going to be over. Morbid I know, but never chose to do nothing over doing something new. There are at least 365 opportunities in a year so make the most of them.
Learn to accept when you are wrong. You will learn so much more if you lose the need to always be correct and you will find that more people will like you if you aren’t as argumentative.
If you have a problem in your life that could be fixed either through communicating or working a little bit harder just do it. Stop running away from problems that could quite easily be solved. If you aren’t willing to fix anything then don’t complain about them when they don’t sort themselves out.
This next tip is quite a bit like the tip above! When it comes to making decisions stop putting them off and start facing them head on. Later on in life you will realise that your biggest failures were the fact that you couldn’t act on a decision.
You will find it incredibly difficult to be happy with yourself if you can’t see past the negative aspects in your life. You will be much happier if you can look past these negative aspects and focus on the positive ones. If you stop looking for these negative aspects then you probably won’t see them. It’s relatively simple because the negative points probably aren’t even there or as big a problem as you thought so stop looking for them in everything you do.
Last but not least, just live in the moment. I am the worst for this. I want to accomplish everything right now and when I can’t I get incredibly uncomfortable. Whats worse is sometimes you feel like you want to do all these things right now but when it actually comes down to it happening you can find that you actually weren’t ready at all. Slow down, take your time and learn to love your life now. Happiness is a way of life and not a destination.
