Here Are The Top 10 Power Shifts You Need To Move Forward In Your Life and Go To The Next Level

10 years from now, right around the 40ish or 50ish year stage in your life, you will suddenly begin to realize many things about yourself and the life you have create thus far. You will ask yourself questions like. How will it be when I get to the end of my life? How do I feel about the life I have lived?

Then someone may  give you advice by telling that it is not too late to be the person you want to be. Does that mean anything to you?

You bet it should. The feeling of anxiety may come over you but that is normal. Then you will feel confused because you may not know what to do next. Life may have not always good. You may still long for a happy life, a successful marriage, two wonderful kids, and a job you reasonably enjoyed. So now is the time to pursue your dreams.

It was your glass ceiling that held you back. The “practical” and fear-based lesson you were taught as a child that convinced you all along that your passion was impossible and dreams were not worth the risk.

Here are 10 powerful shifts that can help you move your life to the next level. This post is design to help breaking through your own glass ceiling and create the life you really want.

1. Give yourself permission to not only dream, but live. You probably had no problem dreaming as a kid and acting out those desires. What happened to your ability to imagine and dream about what you want and who you want to be? When was the last time you caught yourself daydreaming and appreciated it?

2. Stop looking outside yourself for happiness. Look inside. Increase your self-awareness. Get curious about who you are at the core. Cultivate and nurture a relationship with yourself.

3. Cover the basics. Take the time to address your personal needs. How can you focus on thriving in your life if you are in survival mode? Set up that meeting with a life (career) coach and/or financial advisor, get your space organized, clean up the details that are wasting your energy. Plan your finances.

4. Embrace your past and move on. Shift from “why it happened” to what I want to do about it now. Asking “why” is not a very empowering question. Asking what or how I want to proceed can be much more powerful and produce forward movement.

5. Remember that you are not alone. It is easy to feel overwhelmed with life. Seek and surround yourself with support. With the internet and social media that's not really a hard task. Get online and join likeminded groups. Get rid of all the toxic people in your life. Read more self help articles and books. Watch motivational videos. They might help you figure out some things that are puzzling you.

6. Remember gratitude. Count your blessings literally. What is working right in you life? Make a list. Set aside a bit of time everyday to acknowledge what or who you are grateful for. The more you practice gratitude, the more you attract into your life things to be grateful for.

7. Court your passion. You still have your passions though it has been a while since you may have felt it flow. When are you the most alive and joyful in your life? Who do you most admire and what do they inspire in you? Give back by volunteering.

8. Take action and take a risk. All the inspiration in the world is not enough to make you move your life to the next level. It takes inspired action to do that.

9. Keep breathing. You probably forget to take deep full breaths. We have all learned to constrict our breathing in response to stress. According to many self improvement articles, we not only need oxygen to stay alive, we need oxygen to give us energy and keep us healthy. Right now take 5 deep, full breaths.

10. Have fun and laugh. Call a friend, take a bubble bath, take yourself to an art museum or schedule a whole day out in nature. Put on some great music and dance till you drop. Watch a funny movie.

It may not always be easy, but you better believe you are worth it!
