I thought I would set myself a challenge today and write about whether it is truly possible to change your life in 30 days. Well what if I said it can take 30 seconds to change your life what would you think about that?
To be fair as we live life and the experiences we go through you realize with age that most of us never do anything to change our own happiness until it is too late.
We moan and complain that we want to change but grasping the concept of actually changing it is the hardest piece. So let me tell you my story quickly and see if you can understand that you can can change your life in 30 days or 30 seconds as it is completely up to you.
If you can imagine this yourself – you are working away all week doing 70 hours under an extreme amount of pressure with 45 people working for you.
You have 5 hours train journey to get home but when you do you buy flowers for your wife to say thank you for looking after your daughter whilst you were away.
You cook the tea and bath your daughter and put her to bed as she loves her daddy and has missed him so much. Then one day the pressure at work gets so much after 18mths of running flat out you go to the Doctors and he says to take a few weeks off to rest.
Going home you let your wife know and then she turns around and says she doesn’t love you anymore even though you are a great husband and father she would rather live on her own.
Yup it takes things like this that make you change your life in a split second because you are forced too. Now I was not particularly happily married at the time and I knew things could be better but there was no talking this through with my wife so I had to change my life and in those split seconds of the realization kicking in I did the following things.
