    Live Bold!

    If you’re wondering why you aren’t happier or things just don’t seem to work out the way you want, it could very well be because you aren’t “living bold.” The decision to live boldly is one that takes courage and determination, but also one that pays off tenfold.

    Allow Yourself to Want

    The first step in living a bold life is to allow yourself to want. Few realize they are the ones getting in their own way, because they don’t think they really and truly deserve what they want in life. Getting over this proverbial hump takes time, but it’s worth it, as the result is a happier, more peaceful, more satisfied you. Train your mind to accept yourself and that it’s okay to want the things you want. Don’t feel bad about the process taking a chunk of time either–everyone’s process is different, as no two people will change their mindsets the same way.

    Allow Yourself to Ask

    The next step in living boldly is to allow yourself to ask for what you want. Remind yourself–every day if you have to–that asking for what makes you happy isn’t selfish, it’s necessary to enjoy your life and subsequently contribute to the lives of those around you. It’s okay to ask for more than you currently have, and to be ambitious enough to go after it. As long as your actions aren’t harmful to others, motivating yourself to take what you want is a great thing.

    Make a point of allowing yourself to think about what you want, and to take the time to focus on these things. What really and truly makes you happy? What about your current situation is making you unhappy, and what can you do to change it? Remember, the decision to live boldly or to stay in your current situation and remain miserable is a choice. No one is holding a gun to your head and making you stay where you are in your life. It’s you and you alone!

    Wrapping Up

    Retraining your mindset so you may live a bold life might just be the best decision you’ll ever make. It gives you the courage to go after that job promotion, or to change careers. It makes it possible to move across the country if you wish, or to travel. It makes dealing with personal situations easier, such as finally approaching the person you’ve been swooning over for months.

    Give yourself the gift of changing your mindset…and enjoy living boldly!
