Stuck? Feeling dissatisfied? Want more in life?
Things cannot change until you first make a commitment to change. The first step in this process to be happy now. I know it sounds contradictory when you feel you can’t be happy until your life changes.
You have the power to make those incremental changes now. Once your disposition and your attitude changes about life that is when you are in a receiving mode. When you are in a receiving mode that is when what you desire will start to flow into your life.
Here is a simple trick to get the momentum going.
Set Your Boundaries
A lot of the dissatisfaction is feeling like you are living your life for others instead of for yourself. The quickest way to turn this around is set your boundaries.
Decide right now what you need to eliminate or minimize in your life that will support your happiness. Determine what you can put in place to make this happen. For example, the news depresses me. It can quickly turn my mood sour when I see how horrible humans are to one another. I set a boundary for myself to stay away from the new. I also set a boundary for my husband to only share anything from the news if it is the best interest of my well-being.
Another boundary I set was in my day job. It was taking away from my personal time and I was building up resentment. Which in turn caused me to not be at my best for my employer. I determined what I needed to implement a change in my attitude, and I talked to my boss about it. I told her why the change was needed and how this would benefit both me and the company.
Once she understood my boundaries, why I needed them, and because I gave her some solutions if those boundaries needed to be crossed, she was open and accepting to these boundaries.
I no longer work weekends; my days are limited to only 50% of my time in meetings and my evenings are now free to spend with my husband.
These little tweaks made all the difference in my happiness and my attitude. What boundaries can you set for yourself or others that will move into a receiving mode?
