Blog | 5 P’s of Life
Are you stuck?
Are you focusing on what didn’t work out in life?
Isn’t it time you stopped reliving your disappointment?
If you answered “yes” then today is your day. Begin moving forward by identifying ONE thing you want to change in your life. Keep in mind, it has to be something Y-O-U have control over – you can’t change the past, you can’t change a person.
What do you have control over? You have control over your own attitude and response to things in your life. You have control over your actions.
Write down what you want to change in your life and place it somewhere you can view it every day, ideally a place where you can view it multiple times a day. Try writing it on a piece of paper and take a photo of it. Upload it to your phone as your wallpaper.
Once you’ve identified what you want to change then take action. Let a trusted family member or friend know what you are doing and ask for their help. They may have ideas on how you can achieve that one thing you are changing about yourself. If it’s hard to find someone to help you, then hire a professional (such as TransitionPG).
If you find yourself still having a hard time letting go of what went wrong, then give yourself 15 minutes every day to dwell in self-pity. Set your timer and begin. When your timer goes off, readjust your mindset and refocus on the one thing you are trying to change in your life. To help transition your mindset and build positive energy read motivational quotes (we post quotes daily on Twitter and FaceBook).
It’s difficult to get unstuck. But once you let go of the past, you open the doors for a better and brighter future. It takes one day at a time. Be patient with yourself.
