I have always been passionate and excited about learning how we can positively change our life and continue to create more happiness, joy, success, whatever it is that we ultimately want. What I have learned over the years is that in order to make any change, we first need to change our priorities, and this isn’t as obvious as it seems.
We are such complex and beautiful creatures and so individual, which means that when we want to make changes, it is important to not use the ‘one size fits all approach‘. What works for someone else might not work for you, but there are still some key ingredients to change which do apply to us all.
When you want to change, you first have to bring awareness to what your real priorities have been which has gotten you to where you are. You can’t change what you are not aware of. After this, you want to identify what you want to shift in terms of what you are making important.
Awareness is the first step
Some of us spend most of our focus on our work, then less on relationships and even less on ourselves. Others might not work a lot, have lots of great relationships, but not prioritize themself. You can see someone’s priorities by looking at their life.
What does this mean to you? It means if you focus on shifting your priorities first, you will find it much easier to make the changes you want in life.
You might have an intention to improve your relationship with your partner or family, but if you don’t change your priorities at a foundational level, you will likely continue to subconsciously prioritize work, for example. It would remain an intention, to have better relationships, but you have to change the order of importance and what you decide to do.
Here are 4 Key Questions to get started…
We have three areas of life we tend to prioritize over the other: our self, relationships, and work.
1. Which have you been prioritizing and in what order?
2. Which ones do you need to prioritize instead to successfully make the changes you want?
3. What does prioritizing this new area over the other look like exactly? Be specific. (What are you going to be doing differently, more of or not doing anymore)?
4. What results can you get excited about creating by changing your priorities? What is possible now with your new priorities?
Our life is a reflection of our priorities, and if you want to change your life, you must change your fundamental priorities, intention alone will not work! It’s key to ask the right questions to support you to successfully changing.
