This was said at the weekend by my cousin at his 50th birthday. It’s a great mantra to have when faced with a big decision or opportunity in your life. It can also apply to the lifestyle you choose too. The small decisions you make today will affect the lifestyle you are capable of having tomorrow.
For me the big decision was to change my career – from working with my brother as a general manager to working with people to find ways to increase their energy, decrease their stress and support their telomeres as a health coach. My daily small decisions are influenced by my big decision in becoming a health coach. Walking a talk that suits my needs and lifestyle requires daily choices in how I live. A cup of tea instead of coffee, water instead of cola, fresh food instead of processed food etc.
Making big changes is certainly not easy. This in itself can scare people from even considering changing jobs, houses, cities, careers or even what you eat. But what stops you from considering a change? The unknown, family, friends, fear?
Making changes, big and small, mostly is about having support. My support has come from my amazing wife and from friends and family, especially my brother. When you are changing careers and cities – all the support you can get is welcome. But what has been the hardest part in making this change? The doing part has been relatively easy - the hardest part was deciding I was capable of making the change from working for my brother to pursuing something I finally worked out that I wanted to do.
It was a limitation that I had placed on myself. What limitations are you placing on yourself?
When the next opportunity comes my way, my cousin’s words will come to mind and I will evaluate the opportunity available by looking back on my life - hopefully as a healthy and active old man – and thinking …… did I regret not taking the opportunity?
