It’s the end of January and most people have forgotten about the New Year’s resolutions they committed to on the 1st of the month. Many think… why bother, I know I won’t keep my resolutions anyway… and I will re-commit next year – and that is when I will really do it!
You have to admit, there is still time to make the changes you want this year… there are still 11 months left… the question you have to answer is, can you do it on your own?
Or, are you still thinking things will change soon and you won’t have to worry about anything?
Nothing happens the way you want it unless YOU make the DECISION to make the change.
You won’t change your habits, make more money, pay off your credit cards, lose weight or change any relationship until YOU decide how YOU want to change!
Your partner, your co-workers, and your family members aren’t the ones that have to change…
If YOU want to change, YOU have to do the work.
Recently, I had a meeting with a client. She couldn’t understand why when she asked her partner to lose weight, he didn’t. When she asked her co-workers if they’d change the way they communicate with her, they didn’t. When I asked her what her responsibility was to her partner or her team, she shrugged and said, they have to make the change.
She didn’t see any reason she needed to support her partner or ask how she could support him. When I asked her if her partner wanted to lose weight, she hadn’t asked him. Yet, she identified he had to change.
Likewise, she communicated with her co-workers demanding they make changes in the way the team interacted, yet there was no accountability on her part. When I asked how the team responded, she was annoyed they didn’t understand her position.
That’s exactly why when you are faced with making change in your life, it is up to you to decide what YOU want to do.
So if you’ve been hoping work would change and you’re wondering how long you can hang on, STOP.
If work isn’t as fulfilling or satisfying as it once was, it’s up to you to decide what you want.
No one can make the change for you. It isn’t even a choice of waiting to see if it’s what you want. When you are unfulfilled or unsatisfied, it’s up to you to ask what do I want?
Do you want more joy in your life? Do you want the life you have always dreamed of?
If you said yes, then stay tuned for a special invitation on my next blog!
You deserve to have joy on your terms and celebrate what matters to you.
