I was wondering if anybody has experience they could share of making a substantial permanent change to their life for the better? To keep things concise, I’m currently in a position of life where deteriorating health and finances have led me to an uncontrolled stream of failure in my responsibilities to my livelihood and to my loved ones. I am contemplating taking what financial savings I have to try and self-correct myself for a more positive livelihood than the life I lead now.
My personal plan consists of meeting rigorously with mental/physical health professionals, exercise, meditation, medication, sobriety, and trying to learn how to manage time in a constructive manner over a couple months. I believe change comes from within and only the individual can find the answer they need to make change for the better. Nonetheless, I think it would be invaluable advice for a lot of us to hear from people who have undergone an experience to shift from their worst to on the way to their best.
Recommended reading, habits/rituals, groups, and stories would make good suggestions. Hopefully if people respond, the thread may yield relevant steps for others looking to reinvent themselves for the better.
