Do you need to consider what it’s costing you to remain where you are?
I’ve been looking at the theme of living with purpose this month, and for the May newsletter I’ve created a mini guide with hints and tips of how you can live life with more purpose (click on the link here if you haven’t signed up yet!)
This week, I’m looking at what it is costing us to remain where we are.
It’s very easy to get lost in the ‘day to day’, especially with everything that’s been going on during the past year, and we can drift or lose focus.
And as the weeks roll into months, and roll into years, the time always passes quicker when we are head down, getting on with it.
Perhaps after months of lockdown, you’ve had lots of time for reflection and questions – I know I certainly have. And I don’t want to go back to how life was before.
If you recognise that you are feeling unmotivated, or lack confidence or inspiration, you may well be feeling stuck. And it’s likely that you may have lost, or outgrown, your purpose.
By not having a purpose to work towards, we can lose focus. But it doesn’t matter how big or small that purpose is. Purpose doesn’t need to be this huge achievement or ambition…it can mean being better than we were yesterday, or last week, or last year.
It’s recognising that we want different. We want better. We deserve better.
Often we don’t notice until we hit that wall, asking ‘Is this it?’.
The very act of recognising means that we are intentionally noticing what’s going on. Maybe you haven’t done that for a while either?
The first step in getting unstuck is noticing that you are stuck. Because then you can create the vision of where you want to be instead.
