If you are going to change you have to change life styles and patterns too. The most effective way to change life and lifestyles is to set effective goals for you. This means that you have to set goals that can be achieved. They cant be dreams that you want to be a fairy princess or rescued by a frog changed into a prince but they have to be realistic goals that are manageable, that are specific and are measurable too. If you cant measure a goal then you have no way to tell whether you are achieving it. If you have no guidelines or steps then it cant be successful and it may as well remain a dream.
After you do some thinking or reflecting about your life you may decide you need to make some changes. But how does one go about thinking or reflecting about your life? If you are a person who just sort of glides through life perhaps you cant but if you are that sort of person you probably dont need goals because you would not keep them anyway. However if you are a person who is living life and is somewhat dissatisfied with some things in it then you may be the sort of person who can set up some goals and change life around you too.
If you are slightly dissatisfied with your life you first need to decide what part of your life you are dissatisfied with. There are some basic areas of life that are pretty standard to everyone. These areas or issues whether a few of them or a lot of them generally impact each person who lives a life that interacts with other people. These basically fall into the areas of education or mental issues which might entail achieving some college classes for metal growth or just for your enjoyment or any other type of classes you might be interested in for personal growth of the mind and education.
The next area is that of health or physical well being. Not everyone is in the best health or physical shape they are capable of achieving. If not and you are slightly dissatisfied with your weight or your physical abilities you can set goals to exercise more and be specific about it or to eat healthier and set specific ways you can achieve these goals. Also you must set a timeline for goal accomplishment.
The next area is that of ethics or spiritual issues. If you find you are not happy and need something else which can be related to your beliefs or how you live your life. An example is that you may want to expand you spirit with religion of some kind or perhaps get involved with some sort of volunteer program. First you would have to define what you are searching for then do some research on it so that your goals are realistic and achievable.
Others more easily understood might be family issues, financial issues, career issues and cultural issues.
