“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success if found in your daily routine.”– John C. Maxwell
Anyone who has followed my journey since the beginning knows that I have changed completely. Sometimes even I feel, this is my second birth. I made some conscious and consistent efforts to change. As much as I love myself, I believe in growth and change is a huge part of it.
I was not happy with the way my life was, how my Relationships were with every one around, how I looked and how people behaved with me. I jotted down every thing I wasn’t content with narrowed down factors that I can control and factors I have no control over.
If you have ever felt the same way, I highly recommend you to make your list. And then divide them the following way. Here is my list and majority of times these are the points for most of us.
Factors You Can Control:
- Your Outlook towards life
- Your EMOTIONS
- Dedication towards your goals
- Your Mindset
- Loving Yourself
- Your Efforts In Your Relationships
- Accepting Imperfections (yours and others)
- Your confidence
- Your Health
Factors You Have No Control Over:
- Result Of Your Hardwork
- Others Attitude Towards You
- What people think about You
- Others Mindset
- How people perceive You
- Beauty Standards Set By Media
- Other Person’s Effort In Relationships
- People’s Expectations from You
- Toxic People
- Life’s Unpredictability
After you have made your list, now you need to make a conscious effort to let go of the factors you have no control over. Also work on the factors you have total control over. Always remember, only you have the power to turn things around.
You need to realise that any change begins with “YOU”. And trust me things will change. You will simply love the way your life has shaped after you work towards these factors. Even if you adapt and let go of 30% from the above list your life will change for good and will thank YOURSELF oneday for the efforts you did to make it happen.
As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”– Henry David Thoreau
