As we move into the new year, we must think of ways to transform so that the upcoming year is different and has better results than the previous year; especially when building a profitable practice. Sometimes making changes that you want to see in your life, feels nearly impossible. It takes a willingness to step outside of your comfort zone to make significant changes that will transform your year and your life.

If you want to start your year out right, these subtle changes can be the beginning of a happier healthier life:

1. Listen to your intuition. We like to think life is linear and rational, but more often than not, we make blind decisions based on what we know at the time. But what if you started following your intuition more often than your brain? Often the right choice is the one we don’t fully understand at the time. Your intuition can lead you down a path you least expect, but that can change your life in exciting ways. Worry less about connecting the dots and spend more time riding the wave.

2. Understand your why. You want to make changes, but find year after year you have yet to make it happen. One reason for this is because you don’t understand why you want to make the change. Or you understand it, but you focus on how hard it will be to make the change. Look at the big goal you have and ask yourself why you want it. Will it free up time, make you happier, or make retirement more comfortable? If the answer is yes, you should keep your thoughts on how much better your life will be when you’ve made the change, and then take action. Always start with your why.

3. Take action. Often, we humans wait until the time is right to do something meaningful. For this reason, many of us have regrets later in life. What do you genuinely want? If you can answer that question automatically, it’s time to take action. Any action, it doesn’t have to be the right action. But making that first step will lead you to discover the right next steps to take that will lead you to where you want to go.

4. Stay shortsighted. Have you ever thought you’d like to make a significant change in your life but then thought yourself out of it? When you look too far into the future, you can get overwhelmed and end up doing nothing. Ask yourself what the first step would be to make that change, then the next step, and the next one. Most successful people didn’t know exactly where they’d end up. They just knew they wanted to change their lives, and so they did, step-by-step. Don’t let the fear of the unknown future steal your happiness today and keep you paralyzed.
