A lot of us wait for significant life events to kick start life-changing decisions. Whether it’s New Year’s Day, a reunion, or a pandemic that prompts us, we seem to think we need these occasions to create a “game changer.”
It doesn’t have to take a big trip or an occasion to fire up personal innovation. Committing to small changes can create momentum to affect your lifestyle and overall well-being.
Self-actualisation is the key to finding meaning and purpose in your life. Self-actualising is the act of finding your full potential by living a life that is meaningful – intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. Research states that when someone’s life differs from their true nature and capabilities, they tend to be less happy than people who have lives and goals that harmonise. For instance, if you’re passionate about helping children and teaching in schools you won’t be matching your full potential as a banker. Creating significant changes will happen over time if you strive for the best while being your most authentic self.
You never need an excuse to create life changes since you have the potential to start today. Don’t forget that it doesn’t have to be big life decisions or events that create an impact – what we do day-by-day can make a big difference. It’s crazy to think that seemingly small matters would create such traction but in life it really is about the little things.
