1. Keep written goals

Do you ever feel like you’re just going through the motions of life without any real direction? It’s a familiar feeling that can be easily remedied by setting written goals.

Writing down your goals is a small habit that can significantly impact your life. When you have clear goals in mind, you’re more likely to take action toward achieving them. You’ll have a sense of purpose and direction and are less likely to get sidetracked by distractions or obstacles.

But it’s not just about writing down your goals; it’s about making them specific, measurable, and achievable. Instead of saying,

2. Say “no” to almost everything

Learning to say “no” is a small habit that can significantly impact your life. By saying no to things that don’t align with your goals, priorities, or values, you create space for what’s important to you to focus on. You can prioritize your time and energy on things that bring you prosperity, joy, and fulfillment and feel more in control of your life.

3. Follow your energy

Following your energy is about doing what feels right for you instead of what you think you should be doing. It’s about listening to your intuition and inner voice and trusting yourself to make the right decisions.

One way to follow your energy is to identify what activities bring you purpose and fulfillment. It could be anything from reading a book, walking in nature, or spending time with loved ones. Make time for these activities, and notice how you feel afterward. Feeling energized, you’ll be more productive, creative, and happier.

4. Positive thinking

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” – Proverbs 23:7.

We often find it hard to stay positive when only facing adversity but it does have an impact on our energy and abilty to push through. It's the law of attraction.

Trying reframing negativity e.g. instead of saying, “I can’t do this,” try saying, “I’ll do my best and see what happens.”

All great things that have been done started with the belief that they could be. A positive mindset doesn’t guarantee success; a negative mindset almost guarantees failure. Realism usually guarantees stagnation and staying where you are in life.

5. Stay Mindful

Mindfulness is being present and fully engaged in the current moment without judgment or distraction. It’s about being aware of your thoughts, feelings, and surroundings and noticing what’s happening without reacting. It can make you more aware of how you affect others by creating emotional intelligence through awareness.

One way to stay mindful is to maintain awareness of the present moment, practice meditation daily, or do deep breathing exercises. Set aside a few minutes daily to sit quietly and focus on your breath.

Mindfulness helps you bring all your energy and focus into the present moment to accomplish your goals. Mindfulness stops the mental and emotional time-traveling into the past and future.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
