Do you want to make positive change in your life? It can be scary but guess what change is invigorating! It’s what keeps us from getting bored. If we stuck with the same activities, people and routines for 10 years straight without ever changing anything then life would be really boring (not to mention lonely). We should embrace positive change because it has many benefits: making you more flexible and opening your mind up to new experiences–in both personal and professional settings.
Making Positive Change in Your Life with Micro Goals
Have you ever heard of micro-goals? They are small, mini goals that you can accomplish easily. Try giving yourself micro-goals to reach.
Then you can celebrate in your mind or journal every accomplishment: “I bought some healthy snacks today!” or “I was able to wake up 10 minutes early this morning and that’s when I decided to start my book.” Imagine how rewarding it will feel to look back on your accomplishments.
For example, if you want to write a book, break it down into sections; take it one chapter at a time. This is the same concept as breaking eating habits into baby steps: first commit to healthy food in the morning, then commit to getting enough sleep every night; you can even set weekly goals for yourself.
If things aren’t going your way, remember that all progress is good progress. If you’re giving more than 100% and still not seeing results, just have faith that plans will eventually fall into place. Remember: it’s not a race, and you’re doing just fine.
