Seasons of Change
The beauty of the changing leaves and cooler temperatures are signs that we are entering into a new season.
As nature moves into hibernation and rest, we tend to do the same. We snuggle under our warm blankets, eat abundantly, and spend time relaxing with friends and family. The official holiday season is just around the corner.
As we near the end of 2019 and get ready to enter the new year, we have the chance to do things differently. This is an excellent time to do some pruning and shaping so we are ready for 2020.
Season of change = season of growth
For most of us, change isn’t comfortable or easy. We have become creatures of habit and familiarity. This includes our relationships, jobs, routines, the way we eat and drink, and how we think on a continual basis. We become automatic and a bit lazy with our responsibilities. Why? Because it’s comfortable. This prevents us from growing and reaching new levels.
Consider for a moment what you would like your life to look like this time next year. Would you like to be at the same job? How about your weight? Maybe you wish to volunteer for a charity or participate in a course at the Junior college. More importantly, how you are showing up for your family and friends? Would you like to see improvement?
Ed Mylett stated in an interview that his goal is to level up each year and grow into the person he is created to be. His morning routines are habitual. He doesn’t miss a day. He holds himself to high standards, not to impress anyone but himself. When he feels like quitting, he presses harder on the pedal. When he’s at the gym, he always does ONE more rep. His work ethic is impeccable, but it’s not just about his work ethic. It’s about being the absolute best he can be as a human being.
We can all learn a valuable lesson from Ed’s exemplary routines. His mindset is what drives his determination every day. He starts and ends his day with immense gratitude. From this place, everything else can flow.
What are you grateful for today? Be specific. Consider writing your gratitude each day in a journal. When you are grateful, you cannot be angry, grumpy, complaining, bitter, resentful, or fearful. You can only be powerful and creative. ]
Put your hand over your heart and breath. Feel your heart beating? Give thanks for this wonder! You’re alive! Tell yourself how blessed you are and what an incredible human being you are and believe it because it’s true.
As we transition into this new season, consider looking at change as an opportunity for growth. You don’t want to remain exactly where you are this time next year, do you? Make small changes now, whatever that looks like for you. Maybe it’s giving up alcohol. Maybe it’s releasing that toxic person out of your life. Perhaps it’s looking for a new job. How about going back to school or starting that book you’ve been dreaming about?
Whatever it is for you, focus on reaching the next level of YOU.
Get excited for change! If it scares you, even better!
This will confirm that you should give it a go!
