It’s so easy nowadays to become caught up in the monotony of daily life that you become unaware of your minds capabilities.
Going to and from work, the gym, cooking dinner and hobbies sometimes become a routine, but it does not have to be.
It’s incredibly easy to shake things up in your life and to add in some variety. The kind of variety that will allow your mind to flourish. The kind that will help you grow and prosper in all areas of your life
Let’s go through some of the things you can do to promote the prosperity and growth of your mind.
Never Compare Yourself to Others
It is absolutely essential that you never compare yourself to others. No matter what. Comparing your achievements, family, social standing or bank account with that of other’s is a great way to land you mixed feelings, feelings which are completely our of place.
You have never been in their shoe’s and you never will be. You don’t know what their life is like or what they have been through. The path they have taken to get to a particular point is completely different to your own, and so, there is no accurate comparison to be made.
The only person you should compare yourself with, is the person you were yesterday, last week or some other time in the past. You are the maker of your own future and everything you base your goals and aspirations on should be considering what you have accomplished in the past and what it meant for you.
When you truly decide that you will be a better person… well guess what? YOU WILL.
Age Is Nothing But A Number
One of the most important concepts we should all keep in mind is that age is just a number. The day you decide to take your age in your stride is the day you become unstoppable. Age can be an extremely powerful asset for you.
Embrace your youth wholeheartedly, accept that you are the young gun everyone wants to be and use your stamina and adolescent innocence to ask for forgiveness rather than permission.
If you are not young anymore, well then you’ve got a mountain of wisdom on your side. You’ve been there and done that. You can assess a situation far better than 95% of the younger generations due to experience, and you can do it twice as fast as they can.
If you believe that you can make it, well guess what? You will. It’s the Placebo Effect. Forget Murphy’s Law. You can and will use your age, education, intelligence, looks and anything else you can to achieve your goals. There is nothing that people want to see more than hard working, talented & intelligent individuals paving the way of the future.
Create A Happy Brain
It is very easy sometimes to become unhappy for any amount of reasons, but it doesn’t have to be that way. You can just as easily train your emotions as you train your body or form a new habit. This takes time but it is definitely a worthy investment.
Next time your feel a negative thought creep into your mind, why not replace that thought instead with a positive one. Why not link negative events to positive experiences? Why not link negative occurrences to positive lessons learned?
The fact is even though you may have had a negative experience, there is very often if not always a positive lesson or side to the experience. You simply need to become used to finding the positivity.
Be Positive About Yourself
Get a big mirror in your room. If anybody says your just being vain, well all you have to do is ignore them and prove them wrong in your unstoppable waves of confidence that never loose strength. Use that mirror to look into your own eyes & recite all the things that make you unique.
All the things that make you special and all the things that other’s wish they had.
You are an amazing person, no matter what anybody says. You have unique qualities and you are a treasure to have in this world. The sooner you humbly accept this fact and let it take hold of you, I guarantee you will create an aurora of incredible light. and. you, will shine.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”– Marianne Williamson
Focus On What’s Important
How aware are you of whats happening around you? Are you often in the middle of performing one task, but thinking about another?
You should focus on staying in the moment. Focus on the present, on whatever you are doing right now. Don’t multitask or think about too many things simultaneously.
Finish one thing to a great degree of satisfaction, and then move on to the next. This keeps your mind calm and focused on what has to be done right now, rather than adding unnecessary pressure on itself by thinking too many thoughts at once.
Think Big And That’s Exactly What You Will Be
There is a lot of science backed proof that has established how important goal setting is. It’s your best way to determine what you want and to ensure that you are always moving in the direction of achievement. If you have not already, you should immediately write down your one, five and ten year goals and stick them to the wall. Right above your desk.
Not only write them down, but write down bullet points on how you are going to achieve those goals. What are you going to do to get to where you want to be? What’s the knock on affect on one task or goal? How will it improve your future and help you reach supplementary heights?
The power of acknowledging a goal reached, one you previously thought was unreachable, is ultimately the driving factor in creating waves of momentum and motivation. Be sure to reward yourself for each goal reached while keeping an eye on how achieving this goal has improved your life.
