The Best Ways To Improve Your Personal Life

In life, we have a formula to use that helps us to create goals that assist us in improving our personal life.

The inner qualities include skills, ability to commit, ability to set priorities, ability to accept failure, will to say no, and so on.

We have self-awareness, personality and other details within as well that helps us to find ways to improve our personal life.

Consider brainstorming, long-term goals, short-term goals, evaluation of these goals, and see where you can make positive changes.

Get rid of resentment

You need a 7 Day BrainwashIf you resent others for having the things you want in your life, you won’t attract them, as resentment is a lack-based emotion which will be vibrating at a much lower frequency than your desires. You may have seen people with large houses and driving fancy cars, and thought to yourself It’s not fair! They have all that when I have nothing!’

Unfortunately by thinking this way, you are coming from a lack-based mindset and instead of attracting the means of purchasing a similar house or car, you are pushing it away.

If you see someone with something you would love to manifest into your own life, don’t feel envious because they have it and you don’t. Instead, smile and think that they obviously deserve to have it in their lives, and will be getting a lot of pleasure from it. Remind yourself that there is more than enough of everything to go around, and that just because they have one, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t any left for you. Just remind yourself that yours is on its way to you, and feel appreciation for it.

Here’s an example to illustrate what I mean. Suppose you saw someone drive past in the exact make and model of the car you want to own- same color, same alloy wheels, everything. If you don’t yet have the same car, you may be tempted to feel a little jealous- Look at him, showing off- I want that car, why should he have it and I don’t- It’s not fair!’

Now, imagine that you have placed an order and paid for that very same make, model and color car and it is being delivered to you in three days time. You wouldn’t feel jealous then, would you? There would be no need- yours is on its way! Seeing your dream car drive past would make you feel excited, as it would remind you of the joys to come when yours is delivered. You would probably feel a little jumpy feeling in your tummy and may even be tempted to give the driver a little wave and a smile!

Do you see the difference?

You can’t please everybody all the time

You need a 7 Day Brainwash“I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.” — Bill Cosby

Nothing is more harmful to your own growth and development than being a “people pleaser”. We all crave acceptance and approval from family, friends, co-workers, and so on. It is a natural human instinct.

Be sure to not allow your need for acceptance hold you back when it comes to your life and your dreams.

There may be new projects you want to embark on, a new career you want to start, an old friend you want to reconnect with. These kind of decisions will not always be looked upon as “positive” by the people in your life.

Ultimately you need to ask yourself, “Is this idea important to me? If I pursue this idea, will my life gain more meaning and happiness?”

If the answer is yes then you MUST act, despite any negative opinions or judgments from the people around you.

Use this day to focus on giving yourself approval and GO FOR WHAT YOU WANT.

Are you living life to the fullest?

You need a 7 Day Brainwash“There is no passion to be found in playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” — Nelson Mandela

Are you playing full out in life?

Are you playing full out sometimes and holding back at other times?

Are you not playing at all?

Whichever of the 3 categories you fit into, use today to think about how you want to “play” the game of life.

Picture yourself when you are very old and you have very little time left in your life. When you look back at your life, what do you want to see.

How does that person life their life? At what level do they play?

Now, make sure that your actions today, and every day moving forward, match the vision of that old person that you will ultimately become.

Positive living

You need a 7 Day BrainwashI’ve never really addressed the question of what positive living is, have I?

Part of the reason for that I suppose is that it’s going to be different for everyone – at least in the detail, but perhaps in general there are things we all want.

We all want to be loved, for example. (Don’t try and hide, I know you do too!). We all want to feel safe and secure, and we all need that spice of life – variety, don’t we?

But the bottom line is, we feel we’re living positively when we feel we’re getting somewhere. And in order to feel that, we have to have an idea where we think we want to get to, right? Just getting by doesn’t feed the soul. Paying the bills may be necessary, but it won’t warm the heart.

Today, in case you’ve lost the knack, dare to dream. Where do you want to be in a year’s time? In five or ten? And before you dismiss this with thoughts of “it’s for others, but not for me,” remember that old Chinese proverb: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” And, I would add, often with a simple step too.

What single, simple step could you take today that would start your odyssey? It needn’t be expensive or expansive, just personal and definite.

And who knows, once you’ve taken it, tomorrow you may find it so much easier to take the second.

Always create value

You need a 7 Day Brainwash“Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing useful service.” — Henry Ford

Whatever vocation you have chosen for yourself, one of the main goals we all have is to earn an income.

To some people, income is more important than it is to others. The bottom line is that we all need an income to survive in the world today and our desire for material wealth is a healthy desire to have.

However, we have to remember, at all times, that the amount of money we earn will always come in direct proportion to the quality and quantity of useful service we provide.

Make sure that you can get your heart into your work. Make sure that you care about the people who are on the receiving end of whatever it is you produce.

The higher the quality and usefulness, the more value you are creating. And with more value creation will naturally follow a greater income… either directly through your business or indirectly through the positive reputation and future projects you are assigned with.

YOU are perfect just as you are

You need a 7 Day BrainwashAs you look around you, perhaps contemplating what will become of you as life ticks by, think on this.

Everywhere you look you will find people, living or dead, who have achieved more than you. Some are more intelligent, more talented, more beautiful. Others will be the opposite.

There are people who achieve very little compared to, say, Gandhi or Churchill, but who bring up loving families. There are some who cannot tell a joke to save their lives, let alone sing or dance, but who will do anything to help a hungry animal.

And as you contemplate the myriad pieces of the mosaic called humanity, realise that in the perception of others, YOU are included. Each will have a view of you as more or less talented, more or less beautiful and so on.

No one is right or wrong. There are no “betters” or “worses” in the world. Only lots of me’s and you’s. Everyone is perfectly themselves, just as they are. YOU are perfect just as you are.

Only when you see yourself from the perspective of perfection can you grow.
