The pendulum of our life is constantly moving from a point of good and bad. Some changes are adoptable, while some throw us completely of balance. The most important thing we can adjust to is merely our attitude towards it.
However, life doesn’t have to be so hard. There’s an art to learning to let things go and leaving the worries of the past to yesterday. Because in life, we’re all carrying the same load, yet what differentiates us is how we choose to carry it.
Those who go through life with an unaffected attitude are the people who understand the angles of life and the differences between what can be changed and what cannot. From the time in my life and understanding those differences, the ultimate truth I have uncovered is we all are able to move on and enjoy life as it’s presented as long as we accept change.
For now, we have five pieces of core advice that can help you find the courage, motivation, momentum, support, and perspective to leap into the unknown.
Practice getting outside your comfort zone.
I was always very anxious with solo trips and putting myself out there. We all let fear stop us. One way to fight this is to push our boundaries. Think of it like lifting weights: We’re strengthening emotional muscles.
Imagine what things will look like after the change.
With the fear of the unknown comes the reward of a future. We need to remember this and move on with our life. Accept the change. Imagine a day in your life after you reach your goal.
Take one small step, then another.
Take one step at a time and climb the mountain top. As the saying goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Choose the right support network.
Change can be lonely when you try to handle it all by yourself. It helps to recruit people who can act as sounding boards and help you stay motivated. There are no brownie points for going it alone. Believe that people around you care.
Expect failure — and don’t let it stop you.
When we find the courage to try something new and it doesn’t work out, it can knock the wind out of our sails. We may question whether the change is worth it, or even possible. But what if failure weren’t such a shock to our system? What if we expected to fail, sometimes spectacularly, on the path to achieving our goals? What if we focused on how to respond to failure rather than how to avoid it?
If you absolutely can’t accept something, then you must make bold moves to change it. However, the sooner you start accepting the things you cannot change, the happier you will be. The more you change the things you refuse to accept, the greater person you will become.
