Life has its ups and downs, and it is truly not a bed of roses, so it is understandable when you want to transform your life because of bad situations. Although beautiful, it has its fair share of good and bad moments. The thought of having to press the reset button and start life all over again has crossed the minds of every individual before, and so when you think the same way, you feel like you are the only one. No, you are not. Everyone gets to that point where they are exhausted about their lives.
Before you conclude how tired you are about life, you should have done a thorough cross-examination about your life. It could be just one area that makes you fed up, it could be two or more, but whichever case it is, this article promises to be of little help to you.
You are one step close to changing your life if you are sick of it when you acknowledge a problem. You are only able to fix a problem when you know it is there. Before discussing the ‘how-to’, I’d quickly share with you the signs that show that you are tired and, in the end, leave motivational quotes that will transform your life.
Signs That You Are Burning Out
Getting extremely angry over trivial things
When little things upset you, which is not the norm before now, that is a sign of exhaustion. When the smallest inconvenience upsets you such that you lose control over your anger, then it is a red flag that tells you to transform your life positively as soon as possible.
You are no longer motivated to do what you are passionate about
Indifference to doing what you used to be very passionate about is a sign that something is wrong somewhere. When it seems as though there is nothing good to look forward to or a lack of aspiration fueled by your passion and zeal, you may want to check what has gone wrong.
You are becoming unproductive day in day out
When your pace is slowing down, and you can not think straight anymore, then it may be a sign that you are burning out. If, for example, what you could consistently do for one hour, you are taking 4 hours to do, this is also a sign that you are exhausted.
Suppose pessimism starts to set in. All you do is wait for unpleasant occurrences to happen to you, and Negativity starts to disrupt your thinking pattern. It may be a sign that you are tired of your life.
Your emotions are all over the place.
If one minute you are sad and the next you are happy, or you experience an abrupt change in emotions, that may also be a sign that you are burning out. It could be that one moment you want to be alone and then the next you want people around in the same breath.
Having discussed the signs that show you are burning out and may need to transform your life, you need to understand how to implement such changes. Change is the only constant thing in life, and every person is subject to change at every given time. So how do you transform your life when you are so tired of it?
How To Transform Your Life When You Are So Sick Of It.
Note: This process takes time, but if you would be very intentional about it, you would achieve your desired results. After all, Rome was not built in a day.
Sit and have a thorough examination of yourself
I believe this is the first step to carry out. When you have a problem, you should not rush into getting a quick solution to fixing that problem. Sit down, take a very slow deep breath and write out in detail everything you are not satisfied with in your life. Do a thorough examination of yourself by analyzing every area: Your physical well-being, mental well-being, finances, relationships, work, or businesses. Ensure you analyze every area leaving none untouched, and be very sincere with yourself. That is the only way to advance.
Picture the type of life you want
Having done a thorough examination of yourself, now picture the life you want to live. Is there a realistic, attainable standard of living you have always wanted to have? Then picture it! Give yourself time to zoom straight into the future, exploring every aspect. I am not saying you should visualize unachievable fantasies. Be very realistic and whatever you idealize, pen it down.
Set goals in that respect
You need to have goals to keep you running from time to time. Write out those goals and also create well-detailed plans in accomplishing them. These goals must be ‘SMART’.
T- Time bound
These goals should be revisited from time to time. Have goals for the year (a cumulative of your monthly and weekly goals in bits), Have monthly goals (a breakdown of your yearly goals), Weekly goals, and then daily goals. All of the latter should stem up from your annual goals. Take out time to do this and ensure you are not distracted while setting out these goals.
Go all the way to ensure you keep to your goals
This calls for discipline and intentionality in making things work. Go all the way to ensure that you carry out the goals you have set. Let nothing distract you; remain focused. When you keep doing what you have set to do, it becomes part of you eventually. Sometimes you need to cut back on some things if you would get ahead, and when you are focused, you gain speed.
You may have to change your daily routine
“The secret of a person’s success is in his daily routines, the secrets of a person’s failure is also in his daily routines” – Mike Murdock.
You may need to check out what you do daily. Are they progressive, productive, or slacking? If progressive and satisfying, continue in it. If not, construct a daily plan in accordance with the goals you have set and follow through accordingly.
Surround yourself with good people.
One of the reasons you may have been tired of your life could be because of your association. Check your circle. Are they people that breed unhealthy comparisons amongst themselves? Or do they lessen your self-esteem? Are they adding value to your life? Or they make you want to give up all the more? Ask yourself these questions and be sincere with yourself. Know that you can only travel faster when you travel lighter. Cut off wrong relationships and surround yourself with good people instead – people interested in your growth and development, people who want the best for you and are genuinely always happy for you.
Visit a therapist
Many of us think that seeking help is a sign of weakness, but that is not true! Admitting that we are humans and that we can not always get it right or know all things is a sign of strength and flexibility. If you need to talk to someone in person about your life, do not hesitate to do so. The support you would get from such professionals would play a significant role in achieving your desired results. This not only helps in that regard, but it also calls for accountability. When structures are put in place, it breeds consistency to this life long change you are about to embark on. Do not shy away from seeking their help; they are ever ready to help you transform your life.
