Reframe past “failures”

Thinking about our past mistakes usually brings us feelings of despair.

You can stop this by reframing your past failures by recognizing that you did the best you could with the information that you had at that time.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Putting yourself out there is very uncomfortable for most of us.

But try to remember that discomfort is pretty normal. It's just a feeling, nothing more. So allow yourself to feel uncomfortable and accept that the feeling doesn’t mean you should stop trying that new thing your considering.

New projects can feel overwhelming, so imagining how you will get from start to finish it hard.

But you don't have to do it all in a day. Pick one small thing that will take you closer to your goal. And focus on that.

Everyone has a dream. But not everyone is brave enough to act on it.

Be proud of your courage to start a new project.

Force yourself to do things

Our mind has muscles. It memorizes patterns. By doing this over and over, you're building your willpower and self-discipline. 

Forcing yourself to do things that you don't feel like doing (but you know you should be doing) is a habit you can learn.

1. Decide what you want.

First, you’ll need to figure out what goals would make yourself and your life better. What is it that kills you inside every day? How can you solve this?

Do you want to start a company? Move to a new state? Lose some weight? Do you want to declutter your house or office? So, grab a notebook and brainstorm for a few minutes. Whatever you think would improve your life, write it down in detail.
