How to Transform Your Life Moment by Moment

February 21, 2017

“It’s not that easy, it’s really hard,” someone said this to me recently in regards to a change they desperately needed to make. I responded by saying, “And living like this is not hard?”

Have you ever wanted—needed something so badly that it hurt? Have you ever felt stuck by thinking it was just too hard and you didn’t know how you would ever get there? If you haven’t, you’re lucky. But for those of you who have been there, I’m offering these words in hopes that it strikes a chord and you take immediate action.

To the person that told me the above statement, I finished by asking them to make a choice. I could see how difficult it was for them to continue living the way they were. It was ‘HARD’ for them to go on this way. So, I asked this, which ‘hard’ do you want to live with?

As an example, let us say that you hate your job and you want to quit. That every morning you feel terrible, perhaps even shed tears as you make your one hour commute. One might say to you, then just quit, get another job. You might suggest, it’s not that easy. It’s hard to look for another job, one that offers the same benefits as what I have now. In this case (and in all cases) you are making a choice. You are choosing which “hard” you want to live with.

For further clarification, let me provide another example. Let us say you want to get in shape, lose a few pounds because you are extremely unhappy with your current image. You’re so unhappy that you are unkind to yourself, you are miserable and you often cry yourself to sleep. Changing your lifestyle, eating healthy and exercising regularly may seem hard to you. From this point of view, both are hard: feeling sad about yourself and changing your entire lifestyle. So, if they are both hard, then why not go for the one that that is actually moving you in the direction of happiness.

Your life can be transformed by the choices you make moment by moment. Everything in life is about choices. At any given moment, we are deciding on something, to sit on the couch and watch T.V. or to update and send out that resume. To binge watch something on Netflix, or to go for a one hour walk.

I am in total agreement that transformation is often hard, but I also know that living unhappily, without actively pursuing that change you desire is much much harder. So don't wait another day. Actively pursue your highest joy, moment by moment.

As a side note, in case you didn’t know, I am also the author of two fiction novels: More Than Words Can Say and Falling For You. You can visit the “book” tab for more information or visit Amazon, they are both available on paperback and kindle!
