Although Change Is a Fact of Life, It Is Easy to Get Stuck in the Muck

KathiBurnsLife is about constant change. Sometimes we simply get tired of learning and changing and feel more comfortable staying where we are. This is why it is understandable that people get stuck. It happens to everyone at some point in his or her life.

If you feel stuck in some area of your life, be it relationships, career or health, start by clearing your environment of unnecessary objects. This is an easy place to begin. It might seem insurmountable, but the good news is that all you really need to do is start. And if you have tried and failed to clear your life of clutter, hire a professional. In a short time, a professional can help you move the papers, set up sustainable systems or do whatever else is needed so that you can gain confidence and a new feeling of mastery of your environment.

Meanwhile, you will have begun to remove blocks that were holding you back from a lot more than just a clean shelf. You do not have to excel in every area of your life. In fact, it is not possible. It is not in our DNA to be great at everything. Thank goodness or this would truly be a boring and one-dimensional world. It’s not a tragedy if you can’t figure out how to keep the paper piles at bay or get on top of whatever else is mucking up your life. You are probably great in other areas of your life.

Everyone needs help moving through personal blocks at one time or another. The most successful people in life realize this and quickly hire others to assist them when they reach a personal or career standstill. Masters always hire other masters so don’t feel like you have to move through every life change alone.

A struggling economy is the perfect time to reinvent yourself

KathiBurnsDuring this current economy millions of people are coping with major unexpected change.

The Change Nation interview with Daryn Kagan is the perfect example of someone taking a seemingly dire situation and making lemons out of lemonaide. When faced with the demise of her job, she took that golden opportunity to embrace change and recreate a new career based on her passions, an inspirational news web site. I don’t know about you, but I love the idea of hearing about good news instead of news about war, poverty and disharmony.

If you find yourself unemployed and wondering what to do next, consider taking the time right now to discover what your true skills, talents and passions are and how you might best offer them to the world. I did this shortly after 911 and the demise of my tourism related business. Without 911, I would not be living my purpose and offering my highest talents to the world because I never had the time to stop and take a serious look at what I really wanted to do. I am sure you know the story: you get on the ‘money train’ and cant stop it long enough to jump off safely. Maybe you didn’t jump but were dumped, so what? This is still your perfect opportunity to begin anew.

Take this golden opportunity to recreate your life so that you can now live the life of your dreams. Some of the most successful businesses in the world began when the economy was in recession, just look at Microsoft and Apple. Embrace change and get started now creating the life of your dreams now!
