Sometimes events occur that make people take a hard look at the reality of their life. It may be that a person had a birthday and nobody noticed. They take a good look at how they live and realize they have become estranged from family and friends due to concentrating on their career. For some people, major life changes occur when they lose a limb in a vehicle wreck or industrial accident. No matter what the cause, these people generally want to make major life changes.
Even small changes can be difficult for people to make. When it comes to making major changes, they often require massive effort. What matters is working toward change without expecting it to happen overnight. A person can reconnect with friends and family. They can dial back the hours they spend working. Even people that have lost a limb can often find ways to compensate and live a full and happy life.
