When was the last time you found yourself jumping out of bed, excited about the new day ahead of you? Possibly a long time ago. Why is it so, that we are going through life this way, dragging ourselves to work in the morning, lacking motivation to be the best version of ourselves. Surely there’s a better way, there must be a better place for us to find, there is much more to life to be lived and explored. You owe it not only to yourself, you owe it to your family and the people you care about the most.
Deep down inside, you know when it’s time to move on, but normally it takes us a few more months to take action and actually do anything about it. Fear of the unknown, financial constraints, the convenience of staying in our comfort zone. But once you feel the status quo is affecting your mental health, you know it’s time. You just know.
So for me, after working for the same business for more than 7 years, I’ve decided the time has finally come. I know I should have done it a while back, but for all sorts of reasons I just kept going, finding excuses not to take action. It doesn’t really matter right now, because this time around I’ve called it out – enough is enough. That’s it, I’m out!
So seriously, let me ask you again: “When was the last time you jumped out of bed?” Early morning when you had to catch a flight, heading off to a holiday? Or waking up early to watch your favourite sports team play? How good would that be, if every morning was just like that, when you’re simply keen to get out of bed, excited about what’s waiting for you ahead. This is not science-fiction, it’s completely realistic and possible, it’s up to you to make the change in mindset. Doing something you love and are passionate about, being your own boss, making a difference, be creative and innovative – you just have to pick whatever works for you. It’s clearly not that simple but it really starts in your head. I’ve decided, it is time I do something different. Every door you close, another one opens. Every ending is a beginning of something new and exciting. New opportunities await. Lots of potential, lots of excitement, if you dare to look at it this way. So chin up and move forward, the best days of your life haven’t been lived yet.
