The thought of changing your life can be too much for most people, but what if you just concentrate on hanging just one thing? You can start changing your life by changing just one thing. It’s common to feel stuck in a rut and not knowing where to begin to have the life that you want. Your life is moving in a direction that you don’t want to go in and you don’t know how to correct the course. Rather than changing everything, what is one thing that you can change right now? Here is one thing that you can change right now.
Why Does Changing One Thing Work
One of the reasons that this is so effective is that it helps you to build momentum, all you need to do is to get moving. This creates a sort of snowball effect, you start feeling positive again and it becomes easy to add more positive habits in the future. Instead of wishing your life was something else you can start moving your life into the direction that you want it to go. Stop fighting yourself and allow yourself to go with the momentum.
What to Change
Tony Robbins will tell you that to change your life that you need to raise your standards, that’s an awesome place to start but it is also vague. How about instead, that you focus on one thing that you can control that you can change. Something that will push you a little be but isn’t too hard to change. You want something that will give you some positive momentum. You can either create a new habit that serves you or get rid of an old one that is holding you back from the life you want.
You can make your “one thing” something that creates a positive change in your life, for instance, carving 10 minutes out of your day to start meditating. It could be something as simple as going to bed at the same time every night. Renowned psychologist Jordan Peterson will tell you to just clean your room to help you to take back control of your life. Find something that you can start with today.
Start with a single step and let it create the forward momentum that you need to take your life in the direction that you want. Rejoice in your success and once you have that one thing done, move on to something bigger, remember you are in control of your life and you can change it.
