Where are You at?
If you are like me, you have spent a serious amount of time considering whether where you currently are in life is the place you want to be! I’m talking about where your best fit is in the balancing act of work, family, friends and also hobbies or pastimes.
How many times have you told someone you care about that you don’t have time to spend with them doing something they love because of work? How often do you feel that you are unable to serve people in a way which has meaning to you?
Step One to Change
When we become aware of a problem we can either accept that things are not going to change, or search for ways to find a solution to change our story, our reality. If you want to step into a different space in your life, it begins purely with a decision, but it is carried out with an action!
So if you have opened your mind up to the potential of there being another way for you to live your life, that is a huge step…and through this step, you have begun to facilitate the change!
So having decided that there could be more in your life than there currently is, then comes the next step, to figure out what to actually do. The advice given to me was to sit down and clarify exactly what you want and where and how you can serve others most effectively, not a hazy thought of something which might be OK; articulate on paper exactly where you want to be in your life!
I recommend paper over computer or tablet, as it tends to help open the more creative side in you. Doubts and negativity have no place in the thought process leading you create this list, make it the dream description or list! Once you have that down on paper you have a framework, and you may just begin to see your purpose!
One BIG factor to add to this, is that you need to have absolute clarity as to why you want a change…and I mean a reason which you can put in a short sentence! And the best reasons are generally to do with people…other than yourself.
From Here to There
Having a framework of ideas and dreams now listed, you are at the very least beginning to see your passion and where you believe you should be in your life more clearly. So now comes the little task of making it happen! How do you make your passion into something which both serves others and creates an income?
You can certainly do some internet research and ask friends who may have an entrepreneurial business, and all that is great as it begins to generate ideas! Most of all, you need to have a clear picture in your head as to why you want this change (your short sentence BIG reason).
Then you need to have a mindset which is set on making it happen no matter what! And you need to be willing to work, and work on the process to take you “there”.
Aligning Your Mind With Your Dream Future
One of the most challenging aspects of changing your life, especially in a dramatic way, is to keep your head space in positive territory! Reading positive books about positive Leadership from experts such as John Maxwell, or listening to podcasts from gurus like Tony Robbins or others who have been where you are, and are now where you want to be! (You may not necessarily want to be as wealthy as Tony Robbins, but his views and approach to mindset is exceptional)
Entrepreneurs are simply people who decide that they no longer want to follow the status quo, and their mind is focused waveringly on leaving the well worn highway of the standard career pathway…not because there is anything wrong with the standard path, it’s just that they/you believe in a different, and for an individual such as yourself, a higher purpose for their/your life!
“You become what you digest into your spirit. Whatever you think about, focus on, read about, talk about, you’re going to attract more into your life. Make sure they’re all positive.” – Germany Kent. (Yes his name is “Germany”) So ensuring your focus is kept onward and upward is vital to your purpose becoming a reality!
Follow Your Path
For the Entrepreneur there actually is not a destination point or an end to your trip, as there is always new things to learn and different ways to approach blockages which jump up in front of you. There is not a time which comes when you say that you have “arrived”. This is purely because life is about the experiences, the moments which you have day after day week after week.
So making change in your life is not about a far off destination which when reached will make you fulfilled; rather it’s about pacing your trip, it’s about being in a position to slow down, and even stop and breathe in the moment as it is happening!
This altered pace of life means you take more in, and give more of yourself to others willingly. Because you have shifted your focus outside of yourself to help and serve others, you see the world in a different light.
Yes you can still see the evil and atrocities committed and it still affects you, perhaps even more in some ways, however due to your contribution you can genuinely see the change in your world – the people you come into contact with whom you have had the privilege to serve and empower!
I truly believe one of the most difficult and potentially stressful realities you can be confronted with, is to see some great injustice which you are seemingly powerless to change! Being in a position to make a positive difference in any way to your community, has an amazing effect on the eyes through which you see the world…

Phew… Aligning your mind with your dream future… Once I started understanding the effect of words within my head [ and the fact I had chosen my pathway… and that needed to change too] The words I was to use began to change. Lists of words come, were either utilized, or changed, and went.
The comment ” You become what you utilize in spirit” is the truth. And core trigger to processing change desired.
Changing your life is definitely a long process and as you said, it all comes down to your mindset. I`ve found that staying positive is very tough but when you are focused on the reasons you want to change, nothing will be able to stand in your way. Thank you for the informative read.
