Are You Prepared To Change
There’s nothing more frustrating to a life coach than sitting down at a table ready to do the inner work with their client and realizing their client is not prepared to do the work. If you are wondering whether or not you are prepared to change, you have to understand that there is no telltale sign at the one that says you are here and ready. So if you’re wondering if you are ready to do the work to change your life; You need not look no further than the spot you are at. If you find yourself here reading this, you have come to the right place, and you’ve come here out of the need to create change. That in itself is a big clue you are ready to do the work that needs to be done to move forward with your life.
Talking Is Not Doing
Showing up is the most important thing you can do to show that you are ready to change. The reason that a life coach would become frustrated with their client is if they’re sitting across from them and they realize that their client is there just to talk. The talking does not mean that you are ready for change. It might mean you’re contemplating change but definitely not that you’re ready to activate newness. So what are the signs that you are ready and willing to change? Over the years of getting to know people and talking about self-development, I have learned to pick up the signs from those individuals that are ready to change.
Here are 6 Real-Life Examples That You Are Prepared To Change.
One: Showing Up
The number one sign that you are ready to do the work to change is to show up. Showing up is half the battle. It might take a few times of showing up then backing out before you feel ready to really make the significant change. Keep showing up. Even if you fall back, it’s still a step forward.
Two: Your Are Backed Against A Corner
The second sign is you have gotten yourself into a corner, and there is nowhere else to turn—you’re here making a decision to look for a way out from the mess you have created. Sometimes it’s not all your mess, but you allowed the chaos to rule you. Being cornered creates panic, and panic can mobilize you to change because it leaves no other choice.
Three: Something Is Missing From Your Life
Nothing is satisfactory anymore. Something is missing in your life, and you realize that the only way to get it is to seek something else. We, humans, are programmed to grow. We are not meant to stay the same. Having the feeling that something is missing is a sign you are ready to seek the next path in life.
Four: You Are Afraid Of Staying The Same
You’re more afraid of staying the same than you are of making mistakes. If you find yourself far from the path you thought you would end, you are ready to seek a new direction. If nothing else, limbo teaches you what does or doesn’t work for you.
Fifth: You See Things For What They Are
You stop arguing with your life circumstances and realize and see yourself for what you truly are. If you are miserable, you see yourself as miserable. It no longer defines you, and since it no longer defines you, it no longer controls you. When you see things for what they are, you realize there you have more control. Control gives you a push to change.
Sixth: Things That Used To Seem Hard Are Now Easier
The sixth and final sign that you are ready for change is that you just seemed to glide through the things that you need to do to change. Things become clear. You no longer see things as a considerable obstacle. What once was insurmountable is possible. When you are ready for change, you have no choice but to do the hard things.
Change Is Unavoidable
Change drags you forward even if you are not ready for it. Often if you are questioning if you are prepared for change, that is a sign it is time to kick up some dust and change things up. Showing up is the biggest battle you will face when seeking change. Likewise, if you find yourself against a corner, it’s time to seek some new opportunities. Park of seeking change is the feeling that something is missing. Or, maybe it’s the same old routine that has you bored enough to seek a new outlook. But one thing is for sure when you begin to see things clearly, and things seem more effortless, it is time to move on from old patterns and habits that no longer serve you.
A YOU Problem
It’s hard to change when others are satisfied with so little, and you feel it’s just a YOU problem. But we are meant to evolve. We are meant to seek something new. It’s within that newness that we find joy and fulfillment. And contrary to what some believe, life is about living, and there is no perfect way to live it. So keep changing, keep seeking.
