Are you tired of doing the same thing day after day? Do you feel like you’ve hit a plateau when it comes to finding happiness and purpose in your life? Before you jump to conclusions and begin wondering what in the world could be wrong with you, take a step back. It’s very likely you’re feeling and experiencing something that many people go through quite regularly, and it could indicate that you need a life change.
Tony Robbins and his team have helped countless people learn how to transform their lives from ordinary to extraordinary by empowering them to pursue the goals they’ve always been driven by but may have lost sight of along the years. Whether you’re looking to embrace minor or major life changes, transformation is possible and easier than you think when you’re able to first identify the most common signs.
Sign 1: You’re no longer working toward a goal
What in life are you trying to achieve? It’s important to be working toward a goal, be it short or long term, at all times. Goals can help you progress in your personal and professional life, but they need to be defined before you try to make them happen. Do you no longer feel like you’re working to reach your objective? If so, it could be time to reevaluate what drives you. Set your sights on a tangible goal and take steps to help you achieve it.
Sign 2: You’re only focused on yourself
Perhaps you’ve hit a plateau because you’re failing to see life’s greater picture, and instead focusing only on yourself. Are you only working toward a goal because it will benefit you? It’s important to take a step back and think about who you can serve with your specific skill set. Who do you want to help, be it your family, community or the planet in general? Contributing to something greater than yourself can fill you with a sense of gratitude and purpose. As Tony likes to say, “trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole world changes in an instant!”
Sign 3: You’re stuck physically
Human beings need exercise. You don’t need to lose weight or be in the best shape of your life, but you do need to move around and use your body. If you’re feeling limited by your physical health, it’s difficult to feel satisfied emotionally and mentally. Work to develop healthy exercise habits, be it intensive training or taking a brisk walk each morning. You’ll be surprised by how even the slightest change in your physical body positively impacts your overall state. Try it out and see how it affects your mental and emotional well-being.
Sign 4: You’re bored or unhappy
When your alarm clock goes off each morning, do you greet the new day with gratitude or dread? If you’re feeling uninspired and restless, it could be symptomatic that you’re in need of a major life change. By shaking up your lifestyle, you can return to the thrill you once felt from even the smallest moments of joy. Instead of going about your usual routine, break free from the everyday. Try a new form of exercise, go to a cooking or dance class or find a book that interests you and learn something new. By meeting new people and trying new things, you’ll find out what captivates your interest and break free from your mental rut.
Sometimes, the only way to get out of your comfort zone and get back to progressing is by doing something bold. By giving yourself the chance to try something different and new, you’ll be one step closer to living the life you’ve always imagined. That’s why thousands of people around the world have turned to the Tony Robbins’ firewalk. The firewalk presents those who attempt it with a seemingly impossible task: walking across a hot bed of coals. But for those who persevere, they’ll learn how to be fearless, and how to harness their mental strength even when it feels difficult to do so. These qualities can help when it comes to pushing past plateaus and making the necessary life changes you’re in dire need of or maybe the ones you previously weren’t aware of and now are come to fruition.
At some point in time, everyone hits a plateau that causes them to question their growth. Instead of waiting for a life change to happen to you, get out there and make the change yourself. Attend the next upcoming Unleash the Power Within to participate in Tony Robbins’ firewalk, and step out of your rut feeling driven once more.
