How to Change Your Circumstances for Your Favor

Everything that you’ve ever achieved, and want to accomplish comes from you – your mind. 

You set the limits and expectations for what you want in life, which is why I mentioned in the previous article, that the first step to breaking free from your limitations, is to learn how to control and change your perception of your current situation.

With this in mind, you can now actively take charge of your circumstances to build and create new opportunities. 

So how do you begin?

Think of being at the beach, where you can see the tides coming in. When the tide is against you, it feels like an uphill battle. But when the tide is with you, like when you’re surfing, suddenly there’s this invisible force – a momentum that pushes you along and you’re able to ride the waves smoothly, like how that momentum pushes you towards your goal.

So part of taking charge of your circumstances is to systematically turn the tides in your favor.
That means actively and strategically building up momentum for yourself, to propel you where you want to go.
But first, you have to know what you want. You need to know where you’re going in order to set the right goals and the right actions to start getting there, right?

Next, you also need to see things in terms of Trends

Do you believe that a big change requires some sort of big, dramatic decision?

Well that’s not always the case…

The truth is, that change, especially big change, almost never happens as a sudden, one-off result. They don’t happen in a sudden impulsive decision, because those almost never turn out well.
The outcomes that do succeed, are a result of a build up of underlying factors that probably started a long time ago.
Think of the last major decision you made. The seeds that culminated in it, were probably planted months or maybe even a year before, am I right?
You can say that those seeds began a new life trend that started gaining momentum as you put more actions into it. And this really is how your life works.

It’s a series of trends. And a trend is a direction of change – it’s always moving forward.


But the thing about trends is that they’re either going up or down, and some are moving faster than others, but they’re always moving.
Another thing about trends is that you don’t notice the change happening at the time. The vast majority of change happens behind the scenes, and builds up over time. It’s not until it passes a critical point when it suddenly becomes apparent.
Real change comes from where your trends are taking you. Because a trend is like a river, once it builds up momentum, it becomes a force of its own, and nothing can stop it from reaching its destination.

So the secret to turning the tides to your favor, is to control your trends.

But a trend doesn’t start with your actions.

Like your limitations, it starts from your perspective – how you see the thing you’re trying to change. So once you change your perspective, believe it or not, you’ve already started creating a new trend.

You’ll start doing things differently, and soon enough it’ll become automatic. Slowly at first, but over time, these will build up into a completely new you in that part of your life.

So since trends are realized over time, this means that it’s important to start now, because big change is like a snowball. It accumulates from lots of consistent actions.

The upside to viewing change in terms of trends, is that you can start enjoying the change immediately. And the change doesn’t stop, as long as the trend keeps building up. It’ll continue to grow and get bigger and bigger…

The biggest difference between those who experience breakthroughs and those who don’t, is that the ones who see breakthroughs go through a total shift in mindset. They realize a need to see things differently, and as a result, they’re able to act differently which leads to successful outcomes.

Once you’ve experienced that shift in perspective, you’re halfway through the journey of breaking free from your current situation.
