Do you want to change things?

This applies to any area of your life. Look at your situation, pick an area you want to change and then:

  • What is bothering you about the situation? What do you need to change about it? Write these down.
  • What are the ingrained habits that have contributed to this? Write these down – you need to be honest about these.
  • What would the perfect situation look like? Write this down
  • Write down what habits you need to change to make this change. What smaller steps can you make every day to achieve your goal?

The most important thing is that you start doing something to break these chains and start building momentum  so that you can take more of those baby steps forward. Taking action and making changes will build your confidence and start to get you out of your comfort zone – paving the way for bigger steps later on.
