If you’re feeling stuck in a rut personally, professionally, or with regard to relationships, it may be time to evaluate major life changes as a possibility for the resolution of that condition. If you’ve tried minor changes in terms of habit or lifestyle, and they aren’t enough to shake you out of the doldrums, then you’re going to need to dig deeper and potentially do something more difficult.
But just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean that the effort isn’t going to be worth it in the end, and in fact, the difficulty factor may even make the end result that much sweeter. Consider the instances of addiction recovery, financial freedom, school graduation, family planning, and vocational freedom.
One of the biggest goals that a person can have when it comes to trying to change their life for the better is making their way through addiction recovery. Addiction affects countless people – both those who admit it has become problematic and those who hide it. But once a solid recovery plan is found and adhered to, it can be the most beautiful long-term decision you’ve made in your entire life, for you and for the friends and family around you.
And how many people do you know that are drowning in debt? Probably most of them. How different would their lives be, how different would your life be, if you could make major life changes that would get you out of debt and allow you total financial freedom? It’s a hard road, and one that will take time and sacrifices outside of what you might be used to normally, but once attained, the peace of mind can be indescribable.
Education is a goal for many people. But is it a major goal? Are you willing to put in the time and money to go to the classes, learn the material, pass the tests, and graduate? If the answer is yes, then you know what it would take to make a major life change in order to achieve the goal of college graduation. If you look at graduation statistics, you’ll see that the path isn’t a sure thing. But if you work hard, you can do it.
Having children is a huge life change, but one that can lead you ultimately to a secure family situation. Being smart about family planning is extremely important, and you may have to make choices that seem restrictive. But to get to your end goal, think practically and logically as well as with your feelings toward your spouse.
And what about the freedom to have a job that suits your passion as well? So many people feel like they’re stuck in dead end jobs – do you want to be counted among them? With incremental, but major nonetheless, changes to your approach to work, you can make this a reality.
