Many people want to make personal changes for a better workplace. Are you one of them? We often spend a lot of time trying to figure the how. Yet sometimes, we lose sight of the why.
Have you ever questioned, “Am I in the right spot?” You know, are you in the right relationships, hanging with the right people, or actively employed in the right company?
We may even question if we studied the right stuff in school or if we are living in the right city or state. Has this, ever been you?
Everyone’s circumstance is situational. It is like the FAE, our actions and behaviors may best be judged by considering the situation, not labeling the person.
Making personal changes can be challenging. We often think a lot about the new place we want to be, yet we often skip the concept of what we will give up.
If you want to give up a bad habit, it can be simple. Quit smoking, or quit eating donuts. You know what we have to give up.
What if you just want a better outlook for your future?
Did I marry the right person?
Did I choose the right career path?
Am I working for the right company?
Sometimes the best thing to give up is your doubt.
Instead of continuously questioning where you are at, instead be convinced that you are in the right place, right now, at this time. Commit to your place, give up the doubt.
It changes everything.
