Is there an area of your life in which you feel stuck? You know you want or even need to make a change, but for some reason, you can’t seem to make it happen. Whether it is meeting that special someone, landing a better job, pursuing a fun hobby or shrinking the size of your waistline, you find yourself in the same old situation, feeling disillusioned, frustrated and maybe even hopeless.
In order to make any lasting changes in life, the first step must involve a willingness to be open and honest with oneself. To know what we truly desire, we must know who we are. Ask yourself, do I really want what I say I want? And then listen for the answer.
If your response was no, then you may be trying to live up to someone else’s dreams for you. If your answer was an unequivocal “yes,” then you may want to consider that whether we are aware of it or not, there is usually a payoff for staying stuck even when we say we want to change. In other words, there is a benefit to staying where you are.
What are you gaining by not changing? Before you say nothing, take a breath and delve a little deeper. You may be surprised by the answers you’ll find.
