Sometimes we get stuck. Whether in our jobs, a relationship or unhealthy habits. There is a lot of information out there to help one get un-stuck, there are entire sections at bookstores, tens of thousand avenues online or walls filled at the library devoted to becoming un-stuck. While our resources are seemingly endless, it takes only one thing, one tiny step to be able to move forward towards a happier, healthier life. That one thing, that one tiny step is within you.
You can spend hours surfing the web, reading one self-help book after another or watching re-runs of “The Secret” profiled on “Oprah” but until you are ready to make any changes, change won’t happen. Let’s repeat that. Until YOU are ready to make any changes it won’t happen.
Now there’s a lot to be said for “faking it til you make it” or “acting as if you are already the you, you want to be”. Trust me, there is a lot to be said for that. If you have done this and it’s not working and you are really ready to make changes it’s time to identify what what roadblocks may prevent you from reaching this goal. Doing so ahead of time will probably be the most important step you can make. Once you know what can trip you up, you can take steps to overcome it when it does.
Remember, you are the only one who can affect change in your life!
Now go run!
