How To Move from a Mindset of “Settling for Less” to a More Sizzling Lifestyle

I’ve wasted far too many years in the past settling for less because I believed that was the best I could do.  Thank God I know better now! How about you? Do you sometimes feel like you’re caught up inside a ditch with nowhere to go?  Are you fed up with your current way of life – doing the same thing over and over, every single day? Surely that’s not a lifestyle to be content with!

There is an exhilarating world out there and with so much to offer you. Deep down within you, you know very well that there’s need for you to come out and create your ideal life. Understandably, you might find it overwhelming and probably daunting too, nonetheless, you can’t allow your life just pass you by.

It’s time for you to start living those dreams, take a bold leap of faith and get out of your comfortable zone! So, just how do you get started?

Read on for some helpful tips that will assist you in becoming all you can be, now and always:

1.  Decide what you want to do.

Put your fears to the side and take an action by stepping out of your comfortable zone. Dwelling in your comfort zone for so long has so far not helped your situation. If you want to move to the next level, you’ll need to triumph over that fear… In deciding what you want to do, ask yourself…”If I could do anything without fear, money, or time being an issue, what would I choose?

  • Make a list of everything you would like to accomplish someday. It doesn’t matter how crazy or outrageous you may think it is, just write it down.
  • It also doesn’t matter if your list has three or thirty-three things listed. Just search your heart and your mind and write down what you would really like to do.

2.  Faith.

It’s important to have faith to see your journey until the end, yet this may be one of the hardest qualities to develop. Remember how it feels to be stuck where you are with no excitement and no real purpose. You know things can be better than they are now, but how?

  • All you need to do is believe in yourself. You know that countless people before you have lived their dreams, so why not you? What makes them so different?
  •  There really is no difference between you and others, except for the belief in the possibility for great success. You can be just like they are; you just have to believe you can do it!

3.  Don’t keep it a secret.

If you’re ashamed of how you’re feeling, you shouldn’t be. Many people find themselves in the same predicament. The only thing that should embarrass you is if you intentionally decide to stay in that rut! Do yourself a big favour and open up to someone you trust.

  • Whether that’s a parent, spouse, or best friend, tell them that you’re ready to make a change in your life and they’ll be able support you throughout your journey. They’ll encourage you on the good days and cry with you on the bad days.
  • Most importantly, they’ll be there to support you throughout it all. It’s just what you need to achieve great success!

4.  Take the first step.

It’s time to take that first leap of faith. As much as you want to step outside the box and get out of this rut, nothing will happen without taking that first big step.

  • No matter how frightening you may be, you need to focus on the big picture and the pot of gold at the end of that rainbow. Muster up all the encouragement and support you can find and just do it. Once the first step is accomplished, it gets easier!
  • You deserve to be the best that you can possibly be, and deep down inside you know this. You’ll be so glad you took action – and you’ll be so proud of yourself when you celebrate at the finish line!

No one enjoys being in a rut and just going through the motions of life. Don’t let your fears hold you back. After all, this is a wonderful world that you deserve to enjoy to the fullest!

Go out and experience everything life has to offer. Take that first leap of faith and you’ll never look back again!
