Time to change your personality?
As we all know, we have a few days left in 2014, so you know what that means? It's time to assess ourselves and develop goals to ensure a more successful year in 2015! In order to obtain something different, we have to do something different. What will you do differently to improve your quality of life in 2015? Some people may decide to improve themselves through personal transformation. There are times when we feel that we are in a lull and it's time to transform into someone with greater capacity or re-brand ourselves. This can be done by readjusting our personality and attitude. Here are the top 5 personality changes that people typically target for themselves:
Anger. Are you tempermental? Do you find yourself stressed or angry about things, which you cannot control? If so, you may want to work on de-escalating your temper through meditation or other methods of relaxation. Take the time needed to go within to identify the source of your anger and then address it at the point of origination, instead of dealing with the symptoms. If meditation is difficult for you, schedule a body massage for yourself to relax and de-stress. Pamper you! Aggressiveness. Some people put on the 'Tough Guy' image 24/7 and find themselves taking a more aggressive approach with everyone and everything when it isn't necessary. Take the steam out of your pressure cooker! Vent your true feelings to a trusted friend or cleryman, so that you can deal with any hostility. Calm down, so that you can enjoy life, as well as, the people around you. Place more effort into enjoying the journey. Paranoia. Don't immediately feel that someone is always out to derail you. Fact remains that most people are much too busy and just don't have the time to place that much effort into you. Fear is contagious and will dominate your life, if you allow it to do so. Make it a goal to find immediate solutions to any issues or problems that weigh heavily on your mind and let the rest go. Life is more peaceful that way. Be Patient. Do you find yourself moving at warp speed all the time? Have you overcommitted yourself? Take a load off yourself and slow down. The world will continue to turn, if you're unable to make an event or do a favor for someone. Be more patient with others and more importantly, be more patient with yourself. You are a limited resource, so accept that and act accordingly. Passivity. Do they call you 'Mr/Ms. Nice Guy'? Do you feel that you must always agree to someone else's expectations for your life? News Flash: You don't have to! Don't hesitate to kindly question those who are overly nice or who consistently ask something of you. Make an effort to convey to others that you will not be taken advantage of. Re-assess, re-address, and re-arrange what is needed in your life. Your life is your own...make the BEST of it! PM
