Life is all about progress. You have to constantly improve. In order to become better than you were yesterday, you need to form constructive habits.
After all, your habits give rise to your actions and hence make improvement possible.
With that stated, below are seven habits you should engage in daily in order to become that much better.
1. Spend some time working on something that moves you
Greatness is small things done well. If you want to be great and in return escape mediocrity, you have to engage in something that truly moves you.
It’s your job to leave your mark on the world. No one can stop you. You create the effects, others just feel them. You shoot the last shot at the buzzer to win the game, whereas others just watch.
As a result, greatness is reached more readily when we find ourselves engaged in tasks that truly move us.
Life can get pretty repetitive, that’s why it’s so important to break out of this funk. You do this by working on something that truly moves you. Something that gets your mind thinking and your heart beating. Something that makes you feel alive.
If it doesn’t move you, it’s pretty hard to become great at it.
There’s tons of knowledge to be found in books. Knowledge which will not only make you better, but will in return improve your chances of succeeding in life.
There’s been thousands and thousands of successful people who have walked this earth and more importantly majority of them have written about their endeavors alongside what it takes to become a success, you’d be a fool not to learn from them.
As a result, I highly recommend you spend at least one hour of your time reading.
Invest in yourself today because it’ll pay off tomorrow. Believe me.
3. Live on the edge
Escape your comfort zone. Every day aim to do something that the ordinary you wouldn’t do.
Success comes from being uncomfortable and the way you become uncomfortable is by living on the edge of your comfort zone because this is where everything happens.
4. Work on your goals
You know those goals you have written down on paper? WORK ON THEM.
They’re not just going to magically come true.
Every single day, aim to become a step closer to completing a goal.
Just keep crawling away at it. Give it everything you have, every drop of sweat.
Wake up in the morning and read your list of goals and pick one and attack like a raging pit bull. Lock in.
5. Talk to yourself…the right way
Whatever you say to yourself, impacts you in one way or another.
Become your own self motivator. Tell yourself the right things.
Encourage yourself and take yourself to new heights.
Become your own best friend.
6. Avoid people who hold you back
You’re like a train, when you’re moving forward with speed, you are unstoppable, however once you begin to associate with the wrong people and in return begin to spend time on the wrong things that same train begins to slow down. In due time, it will stop completely.
As a result, you need to eliminate negative influences and keep moving forward.
There’s no holding me back. Take on this mentality and when you find yourself in the wrath of someone else’s influence and it’s beginning to slow you down, cut them off.
7. Spend some alone time and just think
Spend at least ten minutes alone and just think.
Give yourself peace.
This is very important because it’ll keep you from getting sucked up in the daily hassles which life brings forth. By doing so, you’ll keep your goals and dreams alive.
So I encourage you to think about your life and what you intend to do and more importantly visualize yourself doing it.
