When a recent event such as a job loss, end of a relationship or illness has shaken you to the core, what do you do? Do you embrace the road you are now on or do you resist, react, and avoid change at all costs? It’s a choice that will either paralyze you or propel you forward towards self-growth.
Being on the verge of impending change is probably one of the hardest places to be. At every fork in the road there are decisions that need to be made and questions about the outcome. The slate is blank and the only choices are to stay where you are or move forward. What choice will you make? To get to the point of life-changing transformation, we need to do the work. And change, good or bad, is painful. It is the ending of one life and a beginning of another. How you do deal with that fear of the unknown? Do you jump into the next phase of your life allowing the “what if’s” to consume your thoughts and dictate your actions? Or do you open yourself up to something different? Ask yourself how often you make unconscious decisions about your future that end up propelling you into self-sabotaging behavior?
You could turn the other cheek and continue doing what you’ve always done or you could open your eyes to its gift. That gift is the opportunity you have to create a conscious, healthy and wealthy life, the life that you really want. It’s a life that comes out of self-growth and life-changing transformation. How do you get there?
Here are six things you can do in the midst of uncertainty to choose differently that will ultimately change the trajectory of your life.
