8 Remarkable Things to Do with Your Life

8 Remarkable Things to Do with Your Life

We can all live life to the fullest, be happy and successful, leave a great legacy and be legendary.

You may doubt it and think only the lucky ones live like that, but the following list is going to change your mind.
You can build the ideal lifestyle and turn your dreams into a reality, if you do these remarkable things with your life (and stick to them).

It takes time, energy, courage and dedication. But you’re not alone. Everyone else has goals like these and fights a thousand small battles each day. But whether or not you become a winner depends on your consistency.

Start by doing these 8 things. They are what can change the course of your life and take you in the direction you’re meant to follow.

1. Find your passion

One of the most beautiful things for me is to see the look of a person who’s found their passion.
There’s such contentment, determination and peace in their eyes that you just can’t help but stay there and admire them.

People who follow their passion live a life of satisfaction, inspiration and joy. They’ve managed to find it, do something in order to make it a permanent part of their lives and, hopefully, make money and help others at the same time.

Your passion is what makes you feel alive and forget about time, it’s the thing you love doing and the activity that makes you happy.

To find it, you need to follow your heart and listen to your instincts, to notice the things that move and inspire you. Then make the best of it.

2. Do everything with a purpose

There’s no point in the things we do if there’s no purpose behind them, if we don’t really want to do them and just feel obligated to.

So think again before you keep doing what others tell you, before you complete all the tasks on your to-do list and before you do what others do or what is considered right, although you don’t agree with it.

If you do something it must have a purpose: it may help you improve and grow, help you or others live a better life, etc.

3. Get in the best shape possible

We can spend centuries going from one diet to another, buying gym memberships, reading about nutrition and healthy lifestyle, hiring people to help us stick to our programs, buying supplements and other stuff that is known for helping people get fit fast, losing some weight then gaining it again, starving for days then overeating, etc.

But without committing to getting in shape and taking control over our habits, we will never become successful in other areas of our life or feel happy and satisfied in general.

So take the decision to do it right this time. Plan, start small and do something each day to get 1% closer to your goal.

4. Give

In good and bad times, when you have a lot and when you have nothing, when you are happy and when you are depressed, remember to be there for others.

Life is nothing if we don’t share, help and give. That’s the ultimate contentment. Because after that we get twice as much.

Become a remarkable person – someone people would love to be with and will respect and be inspired by – by always giving instead of taking.

There’s always something to give. And expecting nothing in return makes it the ultimate good deed. Not to mention the unbelievable bliss you feel once you see how you help people, how you change their lives and how grateful they are.

5. Break free from your comfort zone

We are all used to doing the same thing every day, to living in a safe environment, to being average but being alright with that.

But all that security and peace are an illusion. And nothing new and exciting ever happens in that circle.

So go out there and challenge yourself whenever you meet the opportunity. Each day try something new, do something that scares you or just accept challenges. This way you’ll expand your limits and see things from another point of view. You’ll become an interesting person, who’s not afraid of anything and is always ready for adventures.

6. Hack your life

For everything in life there’s a simpler, easier and faster way to do it.

Learning new languages, getting fit, achieving your goals, making money, changing your habits, conquering your fears, becoming an extrovert, etc. – these are just some of the things you can do in no time and with less effort than you think.

You will need total dedication, of course, but there are so many resources out there that are absolutely free, which can help you with that. Also, so many people that have done it before you share their tips, the steps they took and the problems they encountered.

7. Learn how to enjoy life

Living in the moment, truly experiencing it, being grateful about it and focusing on what you have right now is an attitude that can change your world.

Just concentrating on your current activity and doing it with joy is something that can give you a much better result and make you a happier person.

Never take anything for granted and learn how to enjoy each moment and live in the now. Then you’ll have a fulfilling life.

8. Use the power of attraction

Everything in the world consists of energy, and we are human magnets. So the moment you focus your thoughts on something, the whole universe does everything possible to give you events, things and people that are at the same energy level.

So if you are positive, know exactly what you want and concentrate on that all the time, you can make your dreams come true.

Never underestimate the law of attraction as it’s the most powerful law in the universe. What you think, you attract and become. So let go of fears, doubts, negative thoughts and worries. And focus on the good things and goals of yours.

Think about these 8 items and decide whether you’re ready to make these changes and start living a remarkable life. But always know that it’s up to you.

You can be happy, and you can be miserable. It’s all a matter of choice.

And I believe we can all make the right choice.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
