10 Tips to Make Your Life Better, Starting TODAY!
Be Grateful for What You Have. Make a list of 5 things you are truly grateful for, and then (this is the most important part) write down WHY you are grateful for them. When you stop to remember what you have instead of worrying about what you may not be getting, it changes your perspective for the better. Gratitude brings you into the present moment and connects you to your heart and soul.
Start Your Day the Night Before. Review your day and, without judgment, acknowledge what went well and what didn't go so well. Set an intention to do it differently next time. Make a list of what you will do tomorrow. This allows the subconscious to work on things while you sleep.
Be Ready to Grow Up. You can't control what happens but you can control how you handle it. Look at the facts, without judgment and be clear about the approach that will bring you to the best possible outcome. Take Action. Take responsibility for yourself and the way you address the challenges in your life. Handle Change Like a Master!
Change Your Mind and Your Attitude. The only thing standing between you and life you truly want is thoughts, beliefs, and blocked emotions. If things are not going your way ask yourself, "What do I believe about myself or this situation that is creating this outcome? What would I need to believe and how would I need to feel to create the outcome I want? Get this right and it will literally blow your MIND how quickly you can turn things around.
Don’t Ignore Your Emotions, but remember that feelings aren’t facts. If you want to experience a transformation (if you want your life to be better, you do) you would be wise to learn how to identify, and clear blocked emotions. This step the often overlooked and it is THE PLACE where most progress can be made. Where Real Change can take place. Emotions need to be honored—they don’t have to be justified—but just because you have a feeling doesn’t mean that you are right.
Watch Out for Negative Thinking. Sometimes we get into negative feedback loops and don’t even know it. Those negative thoughts are created by beliefs which create negative emotions which cause you to behave in ways that sabotage your success in all areas of life. You can change your mind, you can release those negative emotions, you have the power to get yourself out of a negative feedback loop. Look at the facts, acknowledge how you are feeling, allow yourself to experience the emotion, breathe and be with it - you'll be surprised how it will dissolve.
Set Up and Stick to a Routine. We are creatures of habit; and good habits, such as getting regular exercise, make us feel better. Maintaining good habits also helps us feel that we have some control over our lives. Just do it. Focus and work in 90 minute intervals. Take a 15 minute break, get a glass of water, some fresh air, do a few sun salutations, then focus for another 90 minutes. You'll be amazed at how much more you will get done and you'll be more efficient.
Let Go of Your Resentments. We all have them and they are a big barrier to your happiness and progress in life. List the five closest people in your life, then list five things you resent about each of them. You'll find them. This is not about them, it's about you. Parents, partners, peers, children, employees, colleagues...resentments take up too much psychic space to allow us to function properly. Set a clear intention that you are ready to release these resentments and set yourself free. Let them Go!!
Know Who You Really Are, and learn to honor yourself. What is most important to YOU? What is your Life's Purpose? What are your deepest core values? What brings you joy? What breaks your heart? Never compromise your personal values and always strive to be The Best Version of YOU!
Enjoy a Part of Every Day. When you are living your Life's Purpose you will naturally enjoy each day more. You'll create more of those bright moments, every day. Make a point of seeing some good in every day, and you will change your life.
Handle Change Like a Master!
To Your Brilliant Future!
With Gratitude and Grace,
