I remember a commercial from decades ago told us if we did not like who we were we could “live it as a blonde”. As if changing our hair color was all we had to do. Is it really that simple? It has not been for me, how about you?
If you don’t like what’s happening to or around you – what are you doing about it?
If you want your life to be different who are you willing to become to be able to have that?
Life is good- even when it’s difficult or sad or when you are blue. Think of the alternatives.
You could have less than you do right at this very moment…yes you want more of something, but more than what exactly?
Do you know what you want? All you have to do is ask yourself, “What exactly do I want?”
Easy question but are you ready for the answer? Better yet are you ready to change? You will need to make some changes or you would have “it” already!
It’s not difficult but it is a process and if you are the impatient kind of person, this will add a different dimension to slow! Slow can mean steady when you are doing the next thing that will facilitate the change but usually change needs choice then courage then persistence then a new habit.
Don’t stop now! You deserve to have what you want and dream about. Just because it will take more than five minutes to get there doesn’t mean it’s not worth the effort! The effort is part of the glory at the end when we know we did it! Some folks can get a book to give them the guidance to start heading in the right direction while others need a cheerleader or someone who helps them connect with their Inner Guidance System.
That cheerleader can come in many forms. A good friend or relative, an excellent boss or even a hired hand can support you through whatever part of the path that needs it. The dedicated hands will be there to ask the hard questions and prod you on. You may not even like the kind of assistance they can give you but it is easier when it’s not a boss or spouse. Not great for building relationships if you come off not appreciative for the aide.
There are lots of tools on the internet that can get you started. The first step is a desire to change then the rest is just one step at a time. Mind Tools is a good website resource that has all kinds of tools that can get you started, but if you decide you want a coach, of course there is me but there is also a load of info on coaching at findacoach.com.
If life for you is a simple as changing your hair colour then go for it! Live it as a blond, brunet, red head or just let it go grey, naturally. Even that takes time if you have been covering it up for a time. Cut it short and start from scratch. The results will be different and everything can change, from the colour and length of our hair, to what we do and more importantly how we feel about our SELF.
Live the life you love and love the life you live!
Life is good, isn’t it!
