Knowing and wanting to change can be a daunting and a difficult thing to do. It brings up uncertainties, insecurity and worry.

Most of us want change but are afraid of it. We spend time talking about our unhappy lives – careers, relationships, of being alone but we have no idea how to move beyond it. We allow ourselves to get paralyzed in our lives and just exist rather than live – all because we are resisting change!
The universe is constantly sending us signals that it is time to let go and move forward.
“It’s better to see the signals when they are rain drops rather than waiting for them to become a tsunami” – Ambila Nath
All you need to do is be open up to seeing the signs because whether you like it or not, it’s going to happen with or without your approval. It could be something small (your landlord has raised your rent), or big (end of a relationship, job loss, illness).
Here Are The Signs You Need To Know When It’s Time For Change
When You Live In The Past To Escape The Present
Be honest with yourself and look into why you’re afraid of the present. Face the fear of what you think will happen to you, if you were to take steps to create a more positive situation.
When You Keep Saying ‘No’ To New Opportunities
The universe is trying to open you up and send you opportunities to help you. They may not be what you are looking for at first glance, but by keeping hold of the past you are only delaying the process and making life more miserable. Be open to letting go so you can make room for the new.
When You Are Miserable In Your Current Situation
Life moves in a circle of constant change and situations, places, hobbies and people will come and go from your life. Be willing to let go of what is no longer serving you. As you grow and change, so do your passions and the people around you.
When You Sugar-Coat How Wonderful Your Life Is
To avoid change, we can constantly keep telling ourselves and other people just how wonderful everything is and that you have no challenges in your life. Keeping up pretence of the perfect life can be far more exhausting than just letting go and facing reality and embracing change.
When You Have Forgotten You Have Choices
Learn to recognize when enough is enough. Sometimes you have to stop hitting your head against a brick wall and move on. You don’t have to continue living in the drama just because it’s familiar.
Commit to making choices that nurture you and your personal growth.
Give yourself permission to let go and move on. Love yourself enough to choose happiness rather than anything that sucks the life out of you.
When You Have Forgotten That You Deserve The Best
Your self-worth will never grow in an atmosphere where there is a lot of negativity surrounding you. You deserve to be appreciated and valued. Surround yourself with those who have a positive attitude and encourage you to follow your path towards greater success and happiness and the achievement of your dreams.
When You Let Small Things Become Bigger
Stop focusing on the niggly everyday things that get you down. You are free to choose what you focus on and feel. Take control and change the older patterns of being. Each day practice releasing something that you normally would find annoying. You’ll gain more happiness and inner peace.
When You Choose To Be A Victim
It’s definitely time for a change when you find yourself asking ‘why me’, rather than ‘what’s next’. Don’t become a victim to your own stories when life doesn’t turn out the way that you expected it to. Stop blaming others or some outside circumstances as the situation will not change – You must!
New things will only be available to you when you make the positive choices and understanding that you are greater than any current problem.
When You Can’t Wait For The Weekend
If you’re saving all your living for the weekends then think about your lifestyle and consider making some changes. Spending 5 days living in frustration and misery and putting all your energy and expectations on to 2 days of the weekend, is very exhausting and demotivating.
Start planning a few things you would enjoy doing during the weekdays rather than saving everything for the weekend.
When You Are Not Focusing On Your Priorities
Are you spending your time living your top priorities? Write down your 3 top priorities. Then write down the 3 things you focus most of your life on. Now see what are you consistently spending most of your time doing. If you’re not focusing your life on what’s important to you then it’s time to make some changes.
When You Think The Grass Is Greener On The Other Side
If you find yourself constantly looking at someone else’s life and feeling that they have it all. Ask yourself why you want what the other person has? Living a life on your terms, focused on your priorities, passions, and strengths, will provide you with much more happier life than trying to be like somebody else.
