I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel less than great. Low energy, fed-up, and bored are all words you could use to describe what I’m like on those days. It is normal to have a few bad days every now and then. Our problems come when the bad days seem to compile and change our lives for the worst. I came across this great motivational video with Tony Robbins featuring Les Brown. If you desire to change your life right now, this is one of the most inspiring videos you can find.
Getting Out of Your Rut and Changing Your Life
What happens when you get a whole string of those off-days, maybe lasting weeks, months or even years? Too many of us say that we’re in a rut, feel stuck, fed-up, or bored and admit that we don’t want things to be that way, but we don’t know what to do to change. That’s the problem, when you’re in a rut, you don’t have the energy or motivation to change things for the better, and it’s tough to find the insight or resources you need to make that jump.
Do Something Differently
Life tends to run smoothly when we establish systems and routines for things, but the problem comes when things run too smoothly and we become blinded to any ideas or choices that sit outside of our routine. All the stuff we do every day becomes the norm, running on auto-pilot, and the slightest change can leave us feeling frustrated and stressed,.
Start with making one or two simple changes each month. Remove one bad habit and replace it with a good one each month.
Doing something differently or changing parts of your routine, instantly takes you out of the norm and allows you to get motivated and create the best schedule that fits your needs. Step out of your routine and you’ll be in a position where you’re able to make different choices, see things differently and get a different result.
