Have you ever had an incredible opportunity land in your lap? Have you been faced with moving to another town or another big life change? How do you keep your sanity with all this change? Life changes, and sometimes in wonderful big ways. It’s all in how we look at handling it. So, how can you prevent yourself from feeling overwhelmed? I’ve got three suggestions to help you simplify your life when something grand rolls your way:
- Is it a great opportunity for you: So, that big promotion or business opportunity comes your way. It’s a big one, and you know it’s great. The question is, does this opportunity make sense for you? Many people get into situations or “force it” . Things like buying a bigger house or car than they can really afford. Down the line these things can bite you in the the you-know-where, so make sure this opportunity feels right and makes sense for you and your situation.
- Balance: So, you’ve decided to take the offer, and you know it’s right for you. However, your plate full. Time to think about some elimination. Do you need to downsize in some other areas of your life to make room? Balance means whatever you take it to mean, and you know when you don’t have balance. 😉
- Sometimes, sacrifice comes with great opportunity. With the presidential race this year, I am fascinated by it all. What a thrill it is to run in that race, actually get elected and reach the seat or Mr. or Ms. President! I also think about the family of the candidates. They are also giving a considerable sacrifice of privacy and one crazy schedule. Inevitably, something will have to go so you can maintain balance and peace of mind. Make sure you’re taking on what you can actually handle, or your great opportunity can end up a great stresser instead of an opportunity of a lifetime.
Take some time to think things through, and make the best decision with the information you are given. If you go into it with your eyes wide open, you’re sure to get farther. One thing about life is certain, and that’s change. Doors close in one area and open in another. Keep a look out for the ones that have your name on it. 🙂
