This is a popular week for reflecting on life and giving thanks for our family, friends, and health. After all, these three combined have a huge impact on our daily lives. There are countless things I’m thankful for every day, and I hope you feel the same way. Now I want you to take a moment for yourself and reflect on the power of choices and change. They shouldn’t be overlooked when giving thanks!
Choose To Be Happy → Change Your Mindset
Happiness is a choice. It really is! Happiness doesn’t come from being rich or popular. Nor does it exist in material possessions. Happiness comes from within you and is absolutely free! If you aren’t already, please find a way to laugh every day and I guarantee your happiness meter will rise. Once you realize that you can control your thoughts, you can change your mindset and your life.
Choose To Get Educated → Change Your Career
It makes me sad and sometimes even annoyed when I hear people complain endlessly about how they hate their jobs. They get so entangled in their own negativity and nagging, and expect others to feel sorry for them. No thanks! Constant complainers waste so much precious time and often don’t realize that their attitude pushes others away. There’s SO much truth in the phrase “knowledge is power.” If you’re unhappy with your job or industry, don’t just sit there! Start researching, reading, saving, learning and change your career!
Choose To Travel → Change Your Perspective
A lot of people are scared to travel or assume customs are the same all over the world and never leave their comfort zone. I’ve been fortunate to do a fair amount of traveling and can vouch that experiencing other cultures is life changing. I believe there would be a lot less hate in the world if more people educated themselves on different cultures. Learning a foreign language is a fun way expand your horizons and there’s lots of free resources online and at public libraries. There are so many amazing places to see and people to meet domestically and abroad. Go exploring and change your perspective.
Choose To Get Active → Change Your Lifestyle
Whether or not you believe in fate, don’t rely on the universe to unfold your future for you. Cuz if you do, you’ll be stuck waiting a really, really long time! If you want to lose weight, start eating healthier and get up and exercise. Tired of being alone every weekend? Start making plans and fill up your social calendar! Want to be your own boss? Go draft up some ideas, make a business plan, and start a side business. You have the power to make choices and change your life.
Work where you want…Live how you want…Be who you want to be!
