You want something to change in your life? Do you want to improve life? You are here because you are not satisfied with your life. Good things are not happening by themself, you must change something to overscale status quo.
Here are 10 things you can do to improve your life and start living.
1. Believe in yourself.
You’ve got to believe in the possibilities. You’ve got to believe that tomorrow can be better than today. Believe in yourself. There isn’t a skill you can’t learn; there isn’t a discipline you can’t try; there isn’t a class you can’t take; there isn’t a book you couldn’t read.
2. Identify what’s keeping you stuck
According to Deborah Serani, Psy.D, a clinical psychologist and author of the book Living with Depression, “This approach gets you to be both reflective and active, [which are] two steps necessary for change.”
- ) Stop and see what it is that’s keeping you stuck right now. Oftentimes it’s a blind spot you can’t see, so taking time to mull things over helps you see more clearly. Is it a decision you’re afraid to make? Are certain people bringing you down? Are you in a cycle of negative thinking?
- ) Look around you to how this blind spot is touching your life. Is it only at home? Or just at work [or] school? and finally
- ) Listen to what your heart and mind tell you about what you need to do. Learning to reflect on your inner thoughts and feelings will help you trust putting them into action.
3. Admit your mistakes
Sometimes you have to admit them to others. Here’s one of the best phrases in the English language: “I’m sorry.” Those words could start a whole new relationship.
They could start two people going in a whole new direction. Admit your mistakes to yourself. You don’t have to babble about them to everyone in the neighborhood.
But it doesn’t hurt you to sit down and have a conversation with yourself and say, There’s no use kidding myself. Here’s where I am. I’ve got pennies in my pocket and I’ve got nothing in the bank.
That’s what I said after a Girl Scout left my door. I had a conversation with myself and I said, I don’t want this to happen anymore.
4. Get to bed earlier tonight
It’s easy to steal time from sleep by staying up “just a little longer,” whether it’s to finish the laundry or finish a TV show. There’s always something that needs to be done or some fun temptation that keeps us from getting into bed on time.
The problem is that the reward is had immediately — which makes it hard to resist — but the price is paid tomorrow.
Get into bed on time and you’ll feel better all the next day and hopefully get more work done, too. Of course, if you have someone that you sleep next to, then you should both get into bed even a little earlier and try to make some things happen.
This will help both of you sleep better.
5. Exercise your willpower to change direction.
You don’t have to keep doing what you’ve been doing the last six years if it’s not yielding the benefits you want. Pick a new destination and go that way.
Use your willpower to start the process. You don’t have to repeat last year. Clean up the errors. Invest it now in the next year. Watch it make the difference.
6.Refine your goals
Start the process. If you like to improve life set some higher goals. Reach for some higher purpose. Go for something beyond what you thought you could do.
7.Participate in a physical activity you enjoy
Regular exercise is an important part of not just physical health, but also mental health. It’s also one of the first things to go when we get busy.
To prevent it from getting squeezed out, make it sacred and don’t let anything else intrude.
Otherwise, there will always be some other demand on your time and you’ll never get that workout in. A walk around the neighborhood is better than nothing if that’s all you have time for, but for the most benefit, you need to break a sweat.
Working out with someone else can make it more enjoyable…
8.Focus on right now
This is difficult for everyone, even therapists. It can be very difficult to focus on what is directly in front of you and ensure that you are fully present.
Today’s technology and expectation to be connected or available to work at all times is one of the most prominent challenges people face when trying to be present in the “here and now.”
9.Conserve your time
Sometimes we get faked out. Motivational speaker Bill Bailey says the average person says, “I’ve got 20 more years.” But Bill says you’ve got 20 more times. If you go fishing once a year, you’ve only got 20 more times to go fishing, not 20 years. That fakes you out.
10. Welcome the disciplines
I can’t give you much better advice than that because disciplines create reality. Disciplines build cities. A well-disciplined activity creates abundance, uniqueness, and productivity.
From all said, you must first change the way you look at things to improve your life. Then you must take action, nothing is happening by itself. Change your mind to take action and things will start moving forward.
