Sometimes when we’re going through some difficult ‘life stuff’, we are more sensitive to negativity. Even folks who practice personal growth can lose focus on what we want, and fall into victim mentality. What I find helpful when faced with messy life, is to look at what’s right in my life, in the moment. My [...]

Tuning Up Life is a resource for simple, effective tips and tools for Living Life Better. We all encounter challenges, setbacks and disappointments in life that can leave us lost and confused, and stuck. And even when life is ‘okay’, meaning our basic needs of food, shelter, and water are being met-(living paycheck to paycheck) or exceeded-(more money in the bank than we can count)…we can still feel unsatisfied, unfulfilled and long for something else, something MORE than our current circumstance, even if we don’t know what that something else is.
One important thing for you to know and understand is that you always have opportunities to Live Life Better. Whatever brought you to this place right now can be the start of something new and improved for your life. The choice you’ve made to read this far and the actions you take right now determine your future quality of life, so this is a BIG DEAL.
Congratulations on taking a step to Living Life Better.
THE THING ABOUT BEING STUCK…
A dear friend of mine once said to me: “Happiness is overrated.” But when I asked if they wanted the life they are living for their grandchild…the answer was HECK NO! (It was actually hell no…but this great example of being stuck and not knowing it.)
And that’s the thing about being stuck…so many people are stuck, that it appears normal, as if ‘that’s the way life is supposed to be’…suck it up.
My high school Spanish teacher used to say “Life sucks then you die.” I’ve been out of high school for a long LONG time, but I never forgot her words. My former teacher was probably stuck in a life she didn’t love –and I can understand her feeling that way, but I wouldn’t want someone who believes ‘life sucks’ teaching my child or operating on my brain.
Are you unknowingly planting seeds of negativism, hopelessness, expect the worst, life sucks, happiness is overrated – to those you love and influence by your actions, words, or attitude?
Taking Action Is How You Break FREE From Being Stuck In Life.
People stay stuck because even if’s it uncomfortable, it’s familiar. Change can require moving to a new place, learning a new skill, challenging our body physically, however, change offers an opportunity grow something better than your current circumstance. Don’t let fear cheat you out of your best life.
CHANGE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE OVERWHELMING…
Having a plan – a system, a map, a vision and knowing what you want and where you’re going and why you’re going, are keys to living a life you desire. When you know what makes you happy, you can focus on bringing more of that into your world. A good life coach will help you formulate a plan to achieve your goals. One of my favorite’s quotes is by Alan Cohen sums it up nicely.
“It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.”
The key to living life better …to being a better parent, partner, leader, teacher, to success, is living a life YOU love.
How Do You Live A Life You Love?
By taking responsibility for your life and for the choices you make and have made that have brought you to this moment.
For example: If you’re unhealthy, or in a job that makes your chest hurt, underpaid, in bad relationships…bored, or lonely, and you’re not doing anything to make life better…these are your choices. You can choose something different at any time.
You can be proactive, – take action, get a plan for your life, and take the steps to achieve your goals. OR you can just let life unfold and be like a ship on the ocean with no captain to direct its course, and be at the mercy of whichever way the wind blows.
Living a life we love is entirely possible and it starts with focusing on YOU and knowing what you really want for your life and being willing to make it happen.
Life Is Not A Test Run … There Are No Do Overs…Only Do Now!
Rich or poor, strong or weak, we all have the same 24 hours a day. Time makes all of us equal. What you do with your time is your choice. If there’s something missing from your life now…the longer you wait to take action, the more time you spend feeling unfulfilled, and unsatisfied. Those feeling do not magically disappear, and the energy of those feeling…well…they will grow and expand.
Are you willing to make time for a better life?
“We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same. “ Carlos Castaneda
