What happens when things do not go as planned? How do you navigate the unexpected when you are trying to follow a new budget and start on a new path for your life. These are both very tough questions. Especially at a time when you are just getting your bearings and building a new life.
Change your perspective.
Do not let a detour derail you.
What does this mean? To start with if you have not read EGO IS THE ENEMY, I highly suggest you do so. With that being said, is your ego getting in the way of your goals and happiness? Are your decisions driven by what you see your new live becoming? Your true desires and dreams, or are you being bogged down by your ego. If you are designing your dream life, but feel the need for outside approval, chances are you are not folowing your own heart. this is where ego comes in, the need to be acepted. The desire to apear a particular way to the outside world. Where am I leading with all this? Let me explain.
When you have a plan and you get hit with the unexpected, and that happens sometimes in life. Your ability to adjust and do what is necessary to accomplish your goal can be severly effected if you are more worried about what others will think, than what your heart truly desires.
Adjust your thinking.
You can change your life by changing your thought process. The less you need outside approval for the decisions you make to be happy. The happier you will be. Let me guess, it’s not that easy right? Actually, yes, it is. You can adjust to your situation faster if you are true to yourself. It is when you focus on the outside world and their approval that you make things more difficult and sometimes even kill the dream you were working for.
Life is going to happen. The car may break down, you may lose your job, there are a milllion things that will come into play. The key is to stay focused on the end goal while making adjustments. Do not limit yourself with the opinions of others. Make the necessary changes and move forward with confidence that you are doing what is best for you.
