Change Your Life Forever With 10 Actionable Steps

Life is the ultimate journey of unforeseen twists and turns, ups and downs. Focusing too greatly on its negative aspects only prolongs a sense of dissatisfaction and misfortune.

Excitingly, nothing in life stays the same forever. In fact, it has the potential to radically change for the better, by just stepping outside and interacting with the world.

But rather than simply waiting for your fortune to unfold, why not take fate into your own hands? While we cannot control everything, our thoughts and actions will dramatically influence our destiny.

Ready to try this for yourself? Follow these 10 empowering steps and you could just change your life forever!

1. Change Your Self-belief – Change Your Reality

    Our minds help us perceive the world around us and as a result, our reality. Over time, we develop strong self-beliefs, some which support us and others that hold us back. Ultimately, they can reflect heavily upon our perception of reality, clouding and restricting us.

    Re-wiring limiting/negative beliefs to work in your favour can provide you with a sense of freedom, limitlessness. Identify the greatest self-beliefs that hold you back. Disregard them and adopt new ones that support, empower, motivate you.

    2. Climb One Step At a Time – Attainable Short-term Goals

      Feel the rush achievement by knowing each goal brings you one step closer to the top!

        You need to develop a vision, dream or fantasy of your perfect future. Ask yourself what you truly want out of life, don’t worry if this takes a long time to discover, or changes throughout your life.

        Once you have a dream, make it as vivid as possible, from day-to-day activities down to how you would feel. Most importantly you must start to believe that it will come true.

        When this belief becomes strong enough, it will begin to influence your everyday actions without you even knowing. Once the law of attraction is on your side, you will gravitate towards achieving it!

        4. Take Risks – Overcome Your Fears

          Fear has always been present in all of us. In the beginning, fear of the unknown served us well as a basic survival instinct. But these days, the fear of failure only holds us back from our true potential.

          Don’t allow fear to trap you in your comfort zone, seek out new discoveries and the wisdom only comes from these experiences. Trust your intuition and take a risk, if you win you will be happy; if you lose you will be wise!

          5. Banish Regrets – Experience a Brighter Future

              Take notice and avoid anyone who discourages, dissuades or holds you back from your aspirations. Secretly, many of these people do not want you to succeed out of jealousy.

              Seek out and align yourself people who hold the same values you do. You’ll be amazed how they will make an effort to help, empower and motivate you to reach success together.

                There few things in life that simply cannot be changed, an event such as losing your job can be painful. But since this cannot be changed, why dwell? Accept it, learn from it, allow it to make you a better person!

                In other cases, we get stuck even though change is still within reach. For example, if you are happy with your bodyweight, it’s totally within your control. Spring into action by learning how to change it, working on it and sweating it out!

                If it’s out of your control, accept and own it. If it’s within your control, get up and change it!

                      5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

                      5 Reasons Why You Should Always Be Yourself

                      When it comes to being yourself, there can be a lot of pressure from the outside world as it tries to influence who you are. Living in a society that is constantly developing, it’s important for you to always be yourself from the inside out. When you deeply know yourself and the boundaries that you have set, you are more likely to experience a fulfilling and rewarding life. Without knowing yourself and establishing those boundaries, you can easily be pushed around and end up on a dirt path.

                      “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” – Matthew 7:13-14

                      You have the option of taking the path that is broad or taking the path that is narrow. You can either conform to what life wants you to be, or have the courage to remain true to yourself throughout the years. It’s definitely a challenge to have a strong sense of self when we are constantly getting distracted and being influenced by the media and society’s way of life. But if you want to reach your fullest potential in life, it all starts with being yourself.

                      Advertising

                      Why should you always be yourself?

                      Because you will:

                      1. Live in alignment with your values and beliefs. Being yourself is all about knowing what you believe in and the values that you live by. When you are not yourself, you will take on the values and beliefs of others. This is when you start conforming to other people’s expectations and way of thinking. When you know your values and why you do what you do, you will live according to your own values and beliefs.
                      2. Establish your own identity. When you are able to have a solid foundation of being you, you are establishing your own sense of identity. No matter what happens in your life, you will always know who you are. There will be times where you may feel lost or distracted, but if you have your own identity you’ll be able to get back on the right path. Without establishing your own identity, you may easily conform and lose yourself.
                      3. Build courage. It takes a great amount of courage when you decide to take the path that goes against the crowd. The reason why the majority of people take the broad path is because it’s easy. It’s easy to just follow the crowd. It’s more of a challenge when you stay true to yourself and establish your own identity. This challenge of always being yourself takes courage and inner strength. No matter what comes your way, you’ll know how to handle it.
                      4. Establish boundaries. When you are always yourself, you know what your limits are and the boundaries that you have set for yourself. When people cross your boundaries, you will know. But if you don’t establish boundaries, people may very well walk all over you and take advantage of you. If you are always yourself and you establish boundaries, you are more likely to be aware when people start taking advantage of you. Create and establish your boundaries.
                      5. Find focus and direction. When you are always yourself, you are more likely to have focus and direction in your life. Imagine someone who is constantly conforming to other people’s expectations. Do you think this person has focus and direction? I don’t think so. When you stay true to who you are, you are more likely to know the goals you want to accomplish and how to go about accomplishing them. You are able to stay focused and know which direction to take in order for you to accomplish your goals.

                      No matter what you experience in life, the only person that will always remain constant is you.
