Your life is a bunch of habits. Health, way of thinking and success: them all are just results of your actions. And actions are formed by habits. Life simplicity is in getting rid of harmful habits and cultivating positive ones. The difficulty is in persistence that bad habits have.
Getting Up Earlier
Even if you are an “owl”, you probably notice that people who wake up early in the morning are more disciplined and motivated. Plus to this, they are less inflicted by stress. It is not clear why things happen that way, but one of the reasons can be hidden in the fact, that when you wake up in the afternoon, you get into a rush at once. Everyone is busy, the world lives its active life. And you just woke up and didn’t have enough time where to start and what to do.
Live to Learn
Great people studied new things till the end of their lives. They found out something new every day and never stopped moving forward. So learn, both in everyday situations and in studying activities: read books, go in for courses. But remember that you have to do that every day.
There are many words said and written about priorities. Choose three things that are the most important for you and dare to become perfect in them. Exclude doing things that make you waste your time in vain.
Once you meet resistance, you should always think about finding another way and not to push your opinion or solution forward with force. Of course you need to know how to stand your ground. But does it always make sense, especially if to talk about relationships with other people?
This skill is always the first one for people who investigate the topic of happiness. So if you want to be happy, be thankful every day. Be glad with what you have. This does not exclude your wish to live and be better.
Learn to Motivate Yourself
Self-motivation is that habit or skill every person who wants to reach their goal needs to master. Without it, any goal will seem to be empty, and life will be looking dull. To learn that, you need to know your values.
Visualization is a process when a person places himself or herself into the wanted future and tries to believe in that future through activation of their sense organs. This really works. At least, it helps you deny fear before the speech or a complicated emotional situation.
The way human thinks can make them better or destroy them as well. Positive thinking is doubtfully popular all over the world, but many people start to acknowledge its value.
Learn to Say “No”
Our time gives us too much possibilities to catch every single one. Plus, the ability to say “no” is a feature of a strong person who knows what they want and understands how to reach that.
Reading should become your habit till the end of your life. Just think about it: you have the opportunity to read things another person had written for years within a couple days! As soon as you start reading a lot, you’ll be able to differ good books form bad ones.
Accept Newbie Thinking
People want to seem to be clever, make conclusions from nothing and often make mistakes. Accept the fact that you can fail to know something and many possibilities to know more will open for you.
You can’t know where to move without goals. They let you concentrate on important things and to look for new methods of achieving them. Set both small goals and great ones.
Meditation is one of the most underestimated habits nowadays. People are usually so busy that they can’t devote 15 minutes to just stop the flow of thoughts and to live every minute devoted to meditation consciously. Meditation cleans one’s mind, and that is very important today.
Learn to Find Right People
You can’t change your life significantly without other people. Learn to create connections, to join up and to create new useful things for the world.
