Feel like you're just running through the motions every day? Doing the same old things that you've always done? Get up, go to work, eat, sleep, repeat...
Don't feel bad, you're not alone. Most people get sucked into letting routine run the show. And it's easy to see why. It's not that everyone is lazy; routine is very, very strong, and even the best of us get trapped by it.
Fortunately, there are quick and easy ways to beating this problem. The simple tips below will help you break free of habit and kick start an exciting and successful comeback!
I have read many stories about people who were supposed to be too old to do this or that - and they did it. It always has been, and always will be, a state of mind. So make sure your state of mind is clear about one thing - the right time is now. You, yes you, are the perfect age to do everything you want to do.
After you've got the age issue in check, it's time to beef up on your daydreaming skills...
Let's say you want to get a new job but can't seem to find the motivation you need to get things moving. Here's what you do. Imagine everything going exactly the way you want it from the very first day on the job. Picture yourself coming to work with a smile, making new friends, and bringing in major successes for the company.
Everything you want should have an exciting mental picture to go with it. Have you been using your imagination as often as you should be?
Consider the things you want to do with your life and then get out there and learn about people who followed a similar path. Better yet, uncover the stories of people who went much farther than you are planning on going. It will motivate you to think about a bigger and better picture of tomorrow.
The first key is focus. You need to know what you're afraid of instead of avoiding it like most people do. You know you can't fix a problem you can't even see. That's why you need to get clear about what's going on in your head. When you do, you'll be amazed at what happens. Fears that linger beneath the surface take on a size that is much larger than reality. In other words, when you don't know what you're afraid of, it can feel like the fear is an enormous, overwhelming thing. But when you shine some light on it, you see it for what it really is - a much smaller matter than you thought it was.
