How to demystify Turning Points

Although a turning point signifies a change of direction in life, we are not always consciously aware of it. But if we are, do we start making changes to free ourselves from the burden of taking on too much work, staying in a relationship that has gone past the sell by date or stay in a home that could do with a little refurbishments and new decoration?

This article points out what needs to change in your life in order to move past your turning point and live a happier life.

Explore your current situation. Ask yourself how long you have been in this stuck situation? Is it one week? Have you been stuck for longer than a month? I believe that you are frustrated, depressed and you are feeling stuck.

The chance is that you have felt really comfortable in your job for a while. The wages are good and pay your bills. The routine of the job has become familiar. You have made friends with some of your colleagues and socialise outside work. Life could not be more perfect! But is it really?

When you are in your comfort zone you feel confident and at ease, often feel relaxed, snug even - and that can be a very pleasant place to be. I felt the same when I worked in the corporate world. But out of a sudden, the comfort zone I was in became uncomfortable and started to loose its meaning.

Fact is that if you stay too long in one job and know that you have no career prospects, you can't grow as a person, you can't grow your knowledge. Your life becomes stale. And yet, how long have you been in this kind of discomfort?

On a scale from 1 - 10, how uncomfortable do you currently feel? 1 is very uncomfortable and 10 is very comfortable or the most comfortable I have ever felt. If you have answered this question with 5 or less than have a look at your current situation.

Ask yourself as to why you feel that way? How can you change the situation or just make amendments? Sometimes it only takes a few tweaks to make yourself feel better. This could be talking to your manager about something you are not happy with or make a suggestion on how to improve your situation.

How quickly can you implement the change? Will it take a week or two to three months?

What other resources have you got to leave the discomfort behind?

Neale Donald Walsch once said that life begins at the end of the comfort zone. I can vouch for that. After I left my work which was great and I loved my colleagues. But I noticed that if I do not leave this kind of comfort zone, my life living my purpose will never happen. I left it and guess what... life has begun. The feeling of being free and having changed my life is amazing. It feels invigorating and liberating. It took a lot of courage to make this all important step, but is was well worth it.
