Change is inevitable but progress is optional. If you want to live life on a higher level you have to step up and demand more from yourself. Here are 8 things that you can do today to change your life for the better.
1. Identify Where You Are In Life And Where You Are Going
In your journal write out where you are in life currently in all aspects. Take a good damn look at your life and see where you truly are and where you are heading if you persist on the same road, doing the same things day after day, surrounding yourself with the same old people, making the same old excuses, watching the same old TV programs, and reading the same old news. Where are you going to be in 5 years time if continue like this? And is this the life that you want to live forever?
“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”
2. Identify What Your Dreams Are
In your journal start writing out what your dream life will look like. Write out every single aspect of your dream life in detail. Make this one to two pages. Use your imagination here and dream like you have never dreamed before.
“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
3. Write Out Your Top 5 Goals For The Year
In your journal start writing out your top 5 goals for the year. These goals must be the most important ones that will make the most difference to your life in regards to spirituality, health, wealth, family, love and happiness. In my opinion, these are the 6 six major areas in life, all else is irrelevant. Set big goals, you will grow into them, and focus on what matters most and everything else will fall away. Review your goals twice a day, first thing in the morning and at night before you rest.
Goals + Deadlines + Action Steps To Accomplish Your Goals
“Goals; they help you stay focused on where you truly want to go.”
4.Write Out The Top 10 Things That You Need To Get Done This Month
In your journal write out the top 10 things that you need to get done this month. What you schedule gets done. If you don’t write down what you need to get done you will forget about it. Make a list of the things that you have been putting off and take action on those things that will help move your life in the direction that you want it to go.
“Action expresses priorities.”
5. Make A List Of The Activities To Engage In Daily
In your journal write out a list of activities that you need to engage in daily so that you can take your life to a new level. Examples can include action, reading books on success, listening to motivation and personal development videos, praying, staying fit and healthy, and spending time with family and friends.
“Engage in the key aspects daily that will help move your life in the right direction.”
6. Make A List Of The Activities To NOT-Engage In Daily
In your journal write out a list of activities that you need to stop engaging in daily. If you do not check your daily habits you will just end up living a mediocre life in the future. Examples can include inaction, reading negative newspapers, watching TV and the News, watching excess amounts of entertainment, listening to music videos, sitting around doing nothing, and wasting time with people who are not serious about success. There are countless activities that you can stop engaging in daily. Make the list and stop doing those things.
“Get rid of the BS and focus on what matters most.”
7. Ask God For All The Good That You Want
Take 10 minutes from your day and ask God for all the good that you want. People like to use the term ‘asking the universe’. It is God who gives to us limitlessly. Don’t be fooled by people claiming that there is no God. So ask, do good, be patient and put in the work, and you shall receive from places that you never thought possible.
“Wake up. Say a prayer. And Hustle.”
8. Take Action
This is the most important one of them all. Take action today on what want. Action is what conquers fear. Action is what breaks down those fear barriers that are imposed upon the mind. What action can you take today that will take your life to a new level?
“Action is the only thing that matters.”
