15 Tipping Points For 2018 To Make Life Easier
These below are far from resolutions, they are more or less aids in making you change your lifestyle and also your ideology. Most time we might not know this but we are own banes and we are the ones who use our actions and ideologies to limit ourselves in life. We use fear, self doubt, over/under doing things to stop the blessing and awesomeness life has to offer us.
If you start doing these things mentioned below i can guarantee you that by the end the year you’d end up laughing with no major regrets.
1. Question yourself, and honor your doubt. People who aren’t secure enough to do this stagnate.
2. Be willing to live the way other people won’t, so you can live the way other people can’t.
3. Learn how to budget your money in a way that makes you feel responsible and liberated, not restricted.
4. Be friends with different types of people. Don’t insulate your worldview by only socializing with those who are fundamentally the same as you.
5. Read. Do you know how few people are reading anything other than a few lines of an article here and there? Few. Do you know why it matters? Because a book you read in a few days this week can change the way you think about something for decades to come.
6. Take yourself as seriously as you want the world to. Behave accordingly.
7. Do things intentionally. Date intentionally. Work intentionally. Don’t let your life be a series of mindless, random actions that just seemed nice at the time, but are ultimately meaningless.
8. If you commit to nothing else, commit to a daily routine that consists of actions that, over time, will lead you to where you want to be.
9. Reflect on your life, and ask yourself what your single most compelling motive is. Construct your narrative about it carefully – the way you justify your past actions will become your philosophy for future ones.
10. Do your soul-searching. Make lists of what you like and what you dislike; what you value and what you don’t; what you’re skilled at and what you’re not. Start cohering an idea of who you fundamentally are, but allow yourself to be open to that idea changing over time.
11. Clean out your space, then work on adopting an attitude of “enough.” Do you really want to spend the next 10 years accumulating things? No, you don’t. Imagine what else all of that money and time and worry could have gone toward.
12. Get comfortable admitting when you’re wrong. There is no failure in making mistakes. There is failure in making mistakes and having too much pride to fix them.
13. Get addicted to healthy pain. The kind that comes from clocking in hours of practice or maneuvering through the discomfort of training your mind to focus on one task until it’s complete. The more you channel your pain into something productive, the less you’ll be tempted to ruminate.
14. Put away a bit of money each month, however much you can afford (and don’t worry if there are setbacks along the way). Compounded interest is no joke.
15. Learn how to budget your money in a way that makes you feel responsible and liberated, not restricted.
