The one constant thing in our life is change. Just take a look around, who would have known a few months ago that you’d have to be staying at home all the time, canceling all your trips and events because of the outbreak of coronavirus?
We cannot avoid change. The more we resist it, the tougher our life becomes. So instead of avoiding it, ask "how can I change my life?"
Trust me, I know this because I was very skilled at deflecting change in my life. We are surrounded by change and it is the one thing that has the most dramatic impact on our lives. Change has the ability to catch up with you at some point in your life. There is no avoiding it because it will find you, challenge you, and force you to reconsider how you live your life.
Change can come into our lives as a result of a crisis, as a result of choice or by chance. In either situation we are all faced with having to make a choice – do we make the change or not? I believe it is always better to make changes in your life when you choose to rather than being forced to.
We however cannot avoid the unexpected events (crisis) in our lives because it is these events that challenge our complacency in life. What we can control when we are experiencing these challenging events, is how we choose to respond to them.
It is our power of choice that enables us to activate positive change in our lives.
Acting on our power of choice provides us with more opportunity to change our lives for the better. The more opportunities we create to change our lives the more fulfilled and happier our lives become.
So, how to change your life? Here are a few things that have helped me evolve during lockdown and I know can help change your life, for the good.
