Living up to our full potential isn’t as easy as we’d like to imagine it is. We envision great things for our lives- travel, passion, experiences, and yet we settle for careers, families, and an often-mundane existence. Rather than take risks, we avoid them in favor of safety and security. While this isn’t always a bad thing, it can come at the price of not living up to your full potential.
Changes are hard to make, especially when we are entrenched in our obligations to our families and our jobs. There’s not a lot of wiggle room that we’ve built for ourselves in these situations. Even if you feel stuck, trapped, or uninspired, there are ways to make sure you are fulfilling your responsibilities while still staying true to your own dreams and goals.
Fear can be our first reaction when faced with the unknown. Uncertainty is a situation we try to avoid. However, this fear can lead to learning about yourself and growing stronger by overcoming that fear. Pushing past this fear can lead to greater personal growth, confidence, and becoming the person you want to be.
If you’re ready to make the leap into the unknown, trust that everything will be ok. The universe will catch you and reward this leap of faith with growth and opportunity. First, however, you have to make room for this change to occur in your life. Start by recognizing places in your life where you feel unhappiness; in your job, your relationship, in your social life, or in yourself. Then, break this unhappiness down to find the root of it. Are you in a career that someone else pushed you in to? Did you rush a relationship too quickly? Are you surrounded by people who don’t make you feel good?
Living your best life starts by pushing away fear and making the changes you know you need to make in your life. You need to simplify your life by decluttering your physical, emotional, and mental spaces and rebuilding your life into what you want it to be.
Change requires work, and work can be a deterrent for some people. The universe rewards hard work, though, so don’t be discouraged in your journey towards change. Imagine the life you want, and then do what it takes to make that a reality. Putting out positive energy can help set the tone for you and the people around you during this time.
No one has the power to change your life except you. Embrace what you know you are capable of by working to build the best life you can today. You’ll soon find yourself on the path to real love, an abundant life, and many more successes.
