Any Change Should Be Small

Leo Babauta, the founder of Zen Habits, says that any change should be small; not a goal, but a tiny first step.

It could be running for 10 minutes, drawing for 2 minutes, etc.

Respect.........

The beauty of doing hard things for God is the blessing that follows. When we sow respect into the lives around us, those seeds are not fruitless. Respect multiplies!

When you respect someone who doesn’t deserve it, you attribute value to them. Many people are so unaccustomed to being treated with honor that they return the favor. Some of the most hardened people you’ve met may blossom when given undeserving respect—this is the nature of grace! Give grace, give honor and watch God work.....

Write 3 Things You're Grateful  For

Gratitude promotes optimism and helps us to develop a more positive outlook. It lets us pause for a moment to reflect on something we have in our life right now instead of always striving for more … the next goal, the new dress, the new toy, the new car, or the house renovation …

One single minute. Nothing more. Even in your busy life, you can find the time for that, right?

Tend To Your Spiritual Needs

We cannot ignore our spiritual needs and truly live a full and rewarding life.  We must recognize that there is a higher power and pursue our faith regularly.  We may not exercise our beliefs in exactly the same way, but I encourage you to find what works for you and explore it to itse depths.  A solid spiritual life will serve you well.

Invest in Yourself!!!!

The importance of personal development can’t be overstated. It’s the secret to separating yourself from the pack, the bridge that carries you toward the goals you have yet to reach.

Entertainment is fun, but how much time do we save for ourselves? How often do we set aside dedicated time for personal development, where we are learning and growing in a way that defines our existence?

Learn To Refuse......

If you accept everything coming your way, you’ll never have time for yourself. So learn to refuse whatever you’re not excited about during the week.

Don't be disappointed if people refuse to help you. Remember the words of "Einstein"........

~~"I am thankful to all those who said NO. Because of them, I did it myself"~

Pretend To Be A Hero

When you’re faced with a challenging situation, an intimidating project, a new career leap, an important meeting, think about a hero in your industry or career. Then ask yourself what this person would do in your situation. How would she handle it? Would he be intimidated? Fearful? Or confident and calm? Now imagine yourself doing exactly what you think you would do. This helps to clarify what the right actions are for you by removing the self-doubt and negative self-talk that can bog you down in uncertainty.

Ask For What You Want

Develop the habit of asking for what you want.  How else are you going to get it?  It is really that simple.  Often, when I ask, I am amazed at how quickly I get exactly what I wanted.  Just give this one a try.  If you are a parent, teach your children to ask others for what they want.  This is truly a behavior you want to come naturally.  It will build confidence and self-esteem...........

Stop Lying Yourself

People tend to let themselves off the hook and take the easy way out much more often than they realize. Often, we hold on to an image or identity that we have of ourselves and let that image distort our reality.

When you track yourself you have factual evidence of your slip-ups, making you less likely to mindlessly justify them or pretend they didn’t happen.

Free up Closet Space

If you’ve been thinking that you need bigger closets, maybe all you need to do is right-size your wardrobe—and your closet will feel bigger overnight.

Plus, donating unused clothing to a local charity is a simple but meaningful way to help others.

Spend a Minute a Day With Yourself......

Just one, come on. I know you can do it. No phone. No computer. No tablet, nor friends or pets around. Just you and your thoughts. Doing this a minute won’t change your life either but it’ll help you start being aware of what you think, instead of being on autopilot.

Being Productive Through Tracking Habits

When you don’t track your habits you’re more likely to talk yourself out of certain activities when you don’t feel like doing them. Tracking reminds and confronts you with your failures, effectively punishing you.

Tracking also gamified your habits, providing extra motivation to being consistent. That sets a chain reaction of benefits in motion that starts to become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Reading For 15mins A Day

I know this one takes a bit longer but it’s worth it. As Jim Kwik says all the time, “Leaders are readers.” It’s not just leaders, it’s everybody who wants to live a better life. Whether you read fiction or non-fiction doesn’t matter. Both have their advantages. What matters is that you read.

Turn off Notifications

Start for an hour a day. If you can last longer, do it. This isn’t as hard as you think it is. The only reason you’re not doing it is that “being reachable” has become a habit. That’s one you need to change.

Write three things you're grateful for

Hell start with one if need be. The goal is to always be looking for the positive in each day. Yes, that's also for when you had the worst day and want to punch the next person who even dares to look at you.

It's easy and helps reframe the bad days. When you struggle to find a postive aspect in the day, you should say i'm grateful for being alive with a furture full of possibilities. Simple but does the trick in the long run.

Why right habits are important

Success requires consistent aligned action... and the right habits ensure you keep taking meaningful action even when feeling unmotivated or uninspired.

Habit-

  • frees up focus for other things by putting actions on autopilot.
  • cuts back the 'need' for motivation to be consistent.
  • makes every day productive & meanigful.

It's easier to replace than to break an old habit.
