More often than not, powerlessness is a perception, rather than a reality. From time to time, we all make too many excuses about why we cannot proactively create the much-needed change in our lives.

We tell ourselves, “I don’t want to rock the boat”, “I don’t want people to think badly of me”, “I don’t want to make a mistake” or “I have no influence over this”. Then we wait passively and patiently for life to improve by chance!

Some situations are not easy to change, but the truth is many are. Being proactive about creating change means claiming back your power and ultimately, your energy. It means moving your life in the direction of your hopes and dreams. You will be amazed by how much less depleted you feel when you take even the smallest action towards a positive change.

We might assume that the people who take control of their lives are assertive and confident types. However, you do not need to be completely confident in order to create change in your life – you just need to make the decision to take the first step.

Decide what you want from your life.

Start making small inroads that give you purpose and help to create the change you desire. Do not wait for new friends, a new partner or your dream role to land in your lap.

Start doing instead of dreaming.

Do not just talk about the things you are passionate about. Put a plan into action to set up a side business, take a trip, start a blog. It may require many steps, but the first step is the most important.

Demonstrate you are capable. 

If you are seeking to advance your career, do not be afraid to demonstrate your abilities at work. Note your achievements. Seek a meeting with your boss and point out that you would be comfortable performing a more senior position and you would like to be considered for promotion when an opportunity arises.

Be bold enough to open up a discussion. 

Open up a discussion instead of waiting for someone else to start the conversation (even if it is a difficult topic).

Define your own version of authenticity.

Define your personal version of authenticity and show up as yourself in every situation. Stop selling yourself short by adapting who you are to fit in with the people you are with.

Slow down. 

If you are exhausting yourself by constantly taking on too much or not setting boundaries around your most important priorities, take some time to look at how you can create more balance.

Nourish your mind and body.

Eat healthy food, exercise and do meditation to improve your health and energy. Be mindful of what you can enjoy in your life right now!
