Is there a bulldozer on your horizon?
The need for change bulldozed a road down the centre of my mind.
Why is it so hard to break free of a life that’s good enough to pursue the life we truly long for?
We like to think these things are complicated, but the root cause is pretty simple: change is hard, so we tend to put it off until it becomes urgent.
When the time comes to change, it becomes an overpowering presence; something that must be resolved one way or another.
When the time comes where you’re willing to make a big break, you may find yourself facing down fear and trying to see through to the other side.
Just remember: once you start going down the road of change, you don’t always know where you’re going to end up.
This very reason is why many people remaining stuck in discontent but unable to find their way out.
Will it be easy?
Probably not, at least not if it’s worth doing.
Will everything be OK?
Maybe, maybe not. That’s why it’s scary.
Many people will not be able to leave behind what is comfortable in pursuit of what is compelling.
Others, will find a way “come hell or high water” to follow the path of no return.
