Your Metamorphosis and How to Deal With it
There will be times in your life when you wake up and you don’t feel a drive and motivation to get out of bed.
Sleeping late, too much work without play, and drinking a bottle of red the night before are all culprits.
But this lack of enthusiasm could actually be signalling a very special time in your life, when what you’ve been doing for the last x days/months/years suddenly loses its appeal because your body, mind and spirit have moved on…
And this usually happens without us ever consciously realizing it.
Most of us are so numbed to how we truly feel that we fail to realize when we’ve had a “change of heart”.
Instead, we stay on the same path. We double our efforts. We are blamed and we blame ourselves, asking “what’s wrong with me?”
My friend, there is nothing wrong with you, and there’s a shining light at the end of the tunnel just waiting to be seen.
If you feel like you’ve been wasting your time — like there’s something out there you should be doing that you’re not — then you’re on to something and you need not ignore it.
Question yourself. Review what you’ve been doing for the last so many days/months/years. Compare that with where you want to be in the next x days/months/years. If you can see that what you’ve been doing won’t take you where you want to go, then just stop.
It can be painful to change direction, especially if there’s a lot of moving parts in your life (dependents, mortgages, debts etc) but you need to ask yourself if the pain of changing direction is greater than the pain of staying put.
If you run your own businesses like I do, then this little nugget of wisdom from a previous business coach can help make change a lot more doable:
if you’ve spent your life mastering something and you feel like a career change, you don’t need to leave your industry. Instead do something in a parallel niche — it can be damaging to change industries beyond a certain age.
Delegate. Recruit. Adapt. Revel in your evolution.
I can’t convey the kind of liberation felt when one sheds their skin and realigns themselves with constantly changing wants and needs. Your choices don’t have to be (and shouldn’t be) leading down one strict path.
