Changes By Lauren Gayle


Ever get to that point where you just want change? Yeah I me too!


Why do we fear change so much? A question i am yet to find an answer too but one thing i do know is change can come from the smallest of things but have the biggest impact on your life. We just need to have the confidence to make the changes and allow them to happen.

Start working on yourself! Sometimes we are so consumed with making others happy that we forget about ourselves :(. Yes it is ok to sometimes be selfish and think about yourself for a change. It can take one thing for you to realize hmmm maybe I have been neglecting my feelings and myself for a while, let me reel it back in. This could be anything from focusing on your next career move to maybe ticking off those little things on your wish list but as long as it makes you happy, DO IT!

Even changing your social circle, over the years I have realized that you are a true reflection of the company you keep. Don’t feel guilty for being choosey with who you surround yourself with, do cut those ties with people that you well and truly believe aren’t helping you excel to the next level. Surround yourself with like-minded people, one’s that want to WIN as much as you do and better yet want to see you WIN too! After all life is way too short for toxic people and negativity! People will come and go throughout life but those that want to be in your life, will be in your life because they WANT to be in YOUR life.

*clicks refresh*

Once you start making the small changes, the bigger changes will start map themselves out (again something I am slowly realizing). It’s not going to happen overnight but it will happen! Having the faith, patience and self-belief that you can make the relevant changes in your life is key. Nothing is going to be easy; boy do you need to mentally prepare yourself for the hard work that you’re going to have to put in but keep that eye on the prize! We all have a purpose and it’s important that we are fulfilling it daily. Progress is impossible without change and if you can’t change your mind then you can’t change anything!
