Going after what we want or making necessary changes in our lives is sometimes difficult. It may be due to fear, laziness, doubt, being too comfortable in our current circumstances or myriad other things. We know we want something different, we know we need to make certain changes, but we are holding off. We may keep telling ourselves we will do it. We may research, we may plan, think of the different ways we will achieve these things. The fact that we are planning to make the changes or eventually move into a course of action to get something we want placates us. We feel like we are doing something good and we stay in that stage.
It takes courage to forge ahead and place ourselves in uncomfortable situations and sometimes, we have a hard time entering into these things willingly. This explains why so many of us are still not doing the things we want or becoming the people we know we can be. We keep putting things off until some vague point in the future.
In some instances, the universe forces our hand. We end up in a crappy circumstance, but ultimately it forces us to do the things that are best for us. It is hard to see it at the time because everything seems to suck pretty badly. But, ultimately, these not so great times are the ones that lead to the greatest times. We no longer can hide behind certain excuses. It is sink or swim. Losing your comfortable secure job that you actually cannot stand is the perfect catalyst for giving serious thought to entering the career you actually want but were too afraid to go after. Finding yourself in dire financial straits is a great way to really start developing faith that you can attract better financial circumstances because, let’s face it, the alternative mode of thought is depressing and terrifying. In these instances, you are more likely to devote the mental effort compared to when you had your steady paycheck, even if the earnings were less than ideal.
When everything seems to be tumbling down around you, it can be scary for sure. But, it can also be an exciting time if you choose to see it that way. You can build a new life, a new you. It may not be the most ideal way to improve things, but for many of us, it is often what it takes to implement real change in our lives. No matter what is happening now, good can come out of it if you use the opportunity to your advantage. Examine these situations to see how it could lend itself to helping create something positive.
