Change One Thing
Like everyone else, there are days or months that I feel in a rut! You know – always doing the same thing everyday. I feel like I’m coasting in life but no rollercoaster rides. Sometimes the ups and downs we can do without but sometimes they are needed just to remind us we are alive!
I’ve read many books over the years, and listened to many motivational speakers. I hear them often say, if you want to change your life, change ONE thing you do every day. It’s a kickstart into wanting to climb out of that rut. That sounds like work ☹
I decided to test that silly thought that I could get a different life with changing just one thing! They aren’t exactly correct.
Changing one thing in my everyday routine hasn’t changed my life per se but it has given me a different perspective.
It has allowed for more creativity as in, what am I going to change next. Now I’m not talking about a total revamp of everything (I did that over 2 years ago) but I’m talking about getting up ½ hour earlier to do something extra for your self.
For those of you that think getting up ½ hour earlier than you normally do isn’t going to happen you should book a Discovery Session with me. Being self employed and being your own boss allows you to live the life you want, set that alarm clock or not and choose your daily schedule of work or play.
Changing that one thing has made me realize that my life could be different; that I could accomplish whatever I want; spend the day with a friend, or lie in bed longer with my love – whatever I decide, it’s all good. It’s a small start to wanting my life to be different. No huge heroic effort is needed here. I’m happy because with huge effort, sometimes comes disappointment that I’ve taken on something bigger than I’m capable of mastering. The smaller change of one thing in my daily routine has helped begin the journey to a different life: One that I am the master of.
Try it for yourself and you will see what I mean.
Here is what I’ve done. I naturally wake up at 0600 hours – meditate and write in a journal of all the people and things in life that I’m grateful for. I’ve always done this – well, for years anyways. Lately I decided to challenge my fitness level – or lack thereof. I walk by 0700 hours. I started with ½ hour and now 2 weeks later, I’m at one hour of walking BEFORE I do any work or talk to anyone or look at any electronic device. Due to this small change, I actually do feel better and I’m able to focus on getting that work done, with lots of energy left over to do what my heart desires, outside of work.
So, maybe my life has changed because of that one thing!
