Become A Control Freak About Your Own Life!
Are you stuck in a rut? Do some days feel like the same old, same old... kind of like Groundhog Day? (No, this isn't an ad for a self-improvement seminar.) Well, join the club! Not that it's a club I want to be in or that I'd recruit my friends to join! OMG, please! I'm not one of those people who drags everyone down to my level when things aren't perfect. But most everyone ends up in this unfortunate club at some point, like it or not. It can happen without us even realizing. We get distracted, we get lazy, we lose inspiration, and before we know it, we're living our own Groundhog Day (but without Andie MacDowell's awesome hair!). If that's where you are right now, make 2018 the year that you take control of your life to make it what you want it to be!
If you're not sure where to start, take a look at this Forbes article for some ideas. It suggests 6 things you can do to change course. Not big lofty stuff that's hard for mere mortals to implement, just practical ideas everyone can do. Like saying "No" once in a while to things that zap your creative energy. Or saying "Yes" to things that can boost your creative spirit; trying new things... all suggestions that can make a difference. You should read for yourself to see. Once you have a few simple habit-changing ideas to run with, you might be ready for a more intellectual approach that can lead you to a shift of mindset. Actually, the author calls it a "shift of brilliance." How brilliant is that? Check out this article for 7 ways to shift and take control of your life. It's good reading to get you started.
