I wanted to share with you 11 Tips That I Believe Will Help you significantly Improve your life going into 2016.
1.Stop being constantly disappointed. Everyday I see on social media and even in my inbox people being disappointed. People are disappointed that they missed a webinar, disappointed their friend or family member rejected their business idea, heck, some people are even exerting energy over their disappointment with the freaking shape of Reese Pieces Christmas trees or Starbucks Holiday Coffee cup! Carrying around an air of being constantly disappointed trains your mind to FIND disappointment. Disappointment means you are addicted to the way you wish things were and not how they actually are. Stop having time to step into the energy of disappointment and find ways to APPRECIATE. One of my mentors, Dani Johnson taught me to trade my expectations for appreciations and it was life changing.
2.Kids grow up fast, do the things you want to do with them NOW. If you always wanted to take them on a particular trip, take them. I look at my 3 sons and I remember how little they used to be, and although we have a great relationship and they are amazing young men, there are a LOT of things I wish I would have done when they were younger. I don’t have regrets but it has me determined to do everything I want to with our sons Eni, Abi and Yori . Time flies, spend it wisely, especially with your kids and family.
3.Forgive. We are all human and we ALL make mistakes. I’ve certainly made my fair share. It is never worth holding a grudge as it eats away at parts of you way more than it hurts the person you have a grudge against. Forgiving people is easier, than in the times where you have NOT forgiven them. What if that person passed away tonight? If that thought leaves you questioning if you should have a grudge then drop it.
4.Be willing to do the work to build your dreams, and the life you love. It is NOT easy and you will probably have to work harder than you have ever dreamed of but it will be worth it. You CAN have the life of your dreams IF you are willing to put in the effort long enough without a whole lot of payoffs in the beginning.
5.Show gratitude more often. If someone stops their car to let you walk past, THANK them. If someone holds the door open for you, thank them. If your spouse makes you dinner thank them even if they have made you dinner the last 37 years. Showing gratitude never gets old and the more grateful you are, the more things you will train your mind to locate to be grateful about.
6.Get a Massage Or Give a Gift of Massage Therapy Regularly. It’s tempting to only give a gift of Massage Therapy during the holiday months. But the fact is good health is not reserved just for those special occasions. It should be done all the time. Best of all its fat free, does not require shipping and you can purchase it online RIGHT NOW
7.Keep showing and telling your significant other how much you love them. Send a random text to them right now and tell them how grateful you are to have them in your life and how sexy and amazing they are. This text, especially if this is something you never do, will probably go over better than buying them some fancy gift. Do SOMETHING daily to show your significant other that you think about them and love them. If you don’t have a significant other and want one, take a minute right now to write down all the traits you would want in your perfect person, I did this after I had been married for over 12 years to my spouse. Before this I totally hated my wife, and thought she did not have any of these traits. I started to treat Nikki really special like she was my dream Girl. Through these steps Nikki has totally become that person that I always wanted:-)
8.Work on your education every single day. There is not one day that goes by that I am not reading a chapter or two in a book and listening to 30-45 minutes minimum of an audio of some sort. This adds up. Doing this for a few days will not matter much but doing this for the next 5- 15 years will totally change your life. Go get signed up for a Free 30 day Bootcamp right now. There is a free audio to listen to daily that will help you to have more success in all areas of your life.
9.Don’t major in minor things. Yes I believe in understanding politics and I personally love getting on FAceBook and Pinterest but neither should consume every minute of your day unless that is your actual business and career. Too many people are so distracted by what others are doing that they don’t have time to focus on their own home and their own life.
10.Stop worrying about what others think about you. We are all walking around worrying about what others are thinking about us and afraid to look stupid. Guess what? If someone thinks you are stupid, it really isn’t that big of a deal. I have been told that what I was doing was stupid almost my whole life UNTIL we created some success of course. Thank god I never listened to them!
11.You will grossly overestimate what you can do in 90 days but way underestimate what you can do in 5 years. In six years I went from living stressfully pay-check to broke-check to happily supporting our family without monster debt. I had no idea that was really possible but I just kept going and not quitting when the going got tough. Keep going and know that you can completely alter your life and the lives of your entire family tree over a few years, not a few months. Don’t wait till next year to start doing these things. Get started NOW!
