Change Your Life Forever With 10 Actionable Steps

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

      There’s an unbeatable sense of triumph and fulfilment that comes from achieving personal goals. Witnessing progress and feeling transformations naturally fuels us with the motivation we need to continue.

      Take advantage of this powerful mind-hack by setting an ascending series of small short-term goals. Set achievable milestones that progressively stack up to reach your ultimate goals.

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

      3. Dream Big – Gravitate Towards It

        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

            Regret is absolutely useless. It’s negative perception of the past that prevents you from moving on into the future. As we learn through experience it’s natural to make mistakes, lessons learnt the hard way being the strongest!

            Transform your regrets into life lessons, use them as rich soil from which you can grow. Release yourself from the prison grudges, regrets, and bad feelings, you will reach a brighter future!

            6. Align Yourself With Those on Similar Paths – Succeed Together

              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.

              7. Change What You Can – Accept What Cannot Be Changed

                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!

                8. Practice a Discipline – Express Yourself

                  Spending time on yourself or your interest is both rewarding and revitalizing for the soul. It’s not just about having fun, many interests and hobbies also offer great benefits for the mind and body.

                  Follow your calling, challenge yourself physically or mentally. These activities are therapeutic and bound to bring interesting opportunities into your life!

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

                      We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

                      On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

                      Advertising

                      Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

                      1. Smart Door Locks

                      A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

                      2. Smart Kitchen Tools

                      Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

                      3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

                      If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

                      5. Nest Thermostat

                      This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.
