30 Years of Life Lessons ♥
Be thankful, be grateful –It shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance of what is already present. It is the ultimate happiness.
Change can be a blessing or a curse – Either way you decide.
“If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” —Henry Ford
Stop searching for love – Focus on loving yourself. You are enough.
Never settle for less than you deserve – You are worth everything you desire in life and in love.
Stop worrying and analyzing everything – It does nothing more than make you more miserable. Be thankful for what is going right in your life.
Stop comparing yourself or your life to others – Don’t allow your own insecurities to hinder your potential to achieve anything.
Become aware of your own thought traps, and put them to rest – Turn “what ifs, I can’t, I failed, I never will” into “What is, I can, I succeeded, I will”.
Believe in the power of your positive thoughts – Thoughts produce feelings. You are in control of your thoughts. Positive thoughts bring positive feelings – complete bliss and happiness.
Create your own happiness – Support from family and friends is a bonus, but you should not rely on them for your sole happiness. You are the only person that can make yourself happy.
Practice Mindfulness – Become self-aware by living in the present moment. Relax and meditate.
If opportunity presents – TAKE IT, don’t be afraid of taking a risk. Believe in the impossible and you will receive it.
Don’t wait for things to fall into place – You have to put them where you want them, and know that anything worthwhile takes time and effort.
“Adaptability is about the powerful difference between adapting to cope and adapting to win.” —Max McKeown
You can’t please everyone – Do what you feel is right for you.
Strike a balance between saving, investing, and experiencing. – The last thing anyone should be worrying about is debt. Debt is inevitable. If there is an investment opportunity, take it! If you want to vacation on a tropical island, GO! If you want something, anything, go for it!
“Work to live, but don’t live to work.”
Believe in yourself – You can truly accomplish anything you put your mind too. Have faith. Envision the life you want; ask for it, believe it, and receive it!
Declutter – Decluttering your work space, home, car, or any personal space really helps to declutter your brain.
Learn a new hobby or skill – Discovering a new passion is such a happy high, it brings instant joy to your life, and gives you something that you can always look forward to.
Surround yourself with positive influencers – When you surround yourself with positive people, you will feed off of each other’s happiness. Seek relationships that build you up. Detach from relationships that bring negative vibes, and bring you down.
LET IT GO – “Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.” And “if it’s truly meant to be, it will just be.”
Nurture your Soul – Learn to truly love yourself by setting yourself on an endless path of self-discovery, and practicing self-care daily.
No one is a mind reader – Speak up. If you have something on your mind, communicate it. Be kind, and respond with kindness.
Make the most of each day – Those are minutes you will never get back. Make a daily plan. Create a list of 3 to 5 daily goals, prioritize them, and then seek to complete.
Be a Goalgetter – Goals keep your mind and life on track.
Exercise and eat healthy – Because it will make your mind, body and soul feel great.
Practice self-reflection – A part of self-discovery, getting to know You by evaluating yourself (or a situations), and identifying your strengths and weaknesses. Ask yourself “How can I do it better?” There is always room to improve.
Be Respectful – This speaks to so many different levels. Be respectful of other people’s realities. People view life different through their eyes. Respect boundaries, values and beliefs. Do not judge. Be honest, loyal, and kind.
Believe in the Law of Attraction – Seriously, it has changed my life, for the absolute better. “It is the ability to attract into our lives whatever we are focusing on. … The Law uses the power of the mind to translate whatever is in our thoughts and materializes them into reality.” Thoughts become Things. I recommend everyone read the book, “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne.
