Day after day it’s the same thing. And not even in a good way.
It’s the same crap. You’re stuck repeatedly doing things you don’t want to do anymore, but you have to.
You’re so sick of it. You can’t wait until the day it all changes. The day when your life is dramatically different, like the polar opposite of now.
Until then you just continue on.
But why really? You know what you have to change, you think about it regularly. It pops in your head whenever you think about all the crap you have to deal with.
There are even times when you’re so fed up with it all that you actually start to take action on that change, just a little.
Soon enough your anger fades, you become tired and the little that you were doing dwindles down to nothing at all.
Why It’s Not Working
You know that you want to make a change. You’re reminded of it almost every, single, day.
You’ve even tried to do a little something. But then just like that, in the blink of an eye you’re doing nothing again.
It just won’t stick.
Changing the way you do things, the way you live your life is hard.
I mean even changing something pretty insignificant is challenging. Once something becomes a natural habit to you, like the way you’ve been living your life, that’s difficult to shake.
But now we’re talking about something colossal, something that impacts your whole life. So doing a 180 isn’t exactly going to be a small feat.
Clearly what you’ve done in the past hasn’t worked so from now on you’re going to have to change your approach.
The way you went about it before continued to bring you back to where you were originally. You’re done being there.
And honestly, it makes no sense to leave there just to immediately come back. You’re just playing yourself.
Stop looping around in endless circles. You need a real course of action that’s going to get you from the start to the finish line.
After successfully making a huge life change you’ll be a pro. Every change you make after that will be a cakewalk.
But more importantly, you’ll finally be happy.
8 Steps to Be Incredibly Successful
1. Be clear about it
For the most part when you want something your idea of it is very general. It’s too vague to really sort out.
You just know the overall look of it. And that’s what you end up trying to chase.
But when you’re not clear on what it is you’re after you can’t really get it. It’s like trying to repaint the image from an inkblot test. You don’t really know what you’re looking at.
Dig deep and uncover exactly what you want, being as specific as possible.
2. Figure out why you want it
When your idea of your dream is vague your reason behind it can be just as vague, or nonexistent.
Sometimes you realize that you want things because other people do, because they seem happy. But it doesn’t matter how other people feel about what you want. What matters is how you feel about it.
Figure out why you really want it and make sure that it’s about you. You’ll learn more about yourself and become connected with what you’re after.
3. Develop a realistic plan
When things don’t work out the way you thought it’s because you didn’t have a plan, you weren’t being realistic or a combination of the two.
Having a realistic plan of action can save you a lot of disappointment and time in the long run.
We would all like to go from 0-60 in a single sweep but life doesn’t work like that.
Create a practical step by step plan and you’ll make progress, not excuses.
4. Believe in yourself
If you don’t believe you can pull something off then you never will.
There will always be something that pulls you back, keeping you from going forward. Even if it’s from within.
If there’s ever a time when you need to be confident in your abilities, this is it.
When you’re taking things to the next level your confidence needs to be at its peak.
Maybe you could even be a little conceited. J
5. Take it easy
I know you’ve wanted this for a long time. So much so that you can feel it.
And there are probably is so much more that you want to do. This would just be the beginning, the breakthrough that you’ve waited ages for.
You can’t rush things though. Take it easy and do one thing at a time.
Focus on one task. Do it right so you don’t have to do it again and you’ll be successful.
Besides, the last thing you need to be is overwhelmed after coming this far.
6. Don’t back down
Whether you tell them or not the people around you are going to see a change in you and what you’re doing.
Not everyone is going to understand it or agree with it. But don’t let that stop you.
They’re going to give you opinions you didn’t ask for and make comments you could’ve lived without. But don’t make your decisions solely on their feedback.
Remember why you’re doing it. And if there’s any merit in their concerns consider them and prepare for it but continue on as planned.
7. Get support
As I said, everyone around you may not be supportive the way you need them to be. That’s why it’s important for you to create your own circle of support.
Connect with at least one person who is supportive and can provide you with the encouragement you need.
You can do it all on your own but it’s easier when you have someone in your corner.
8. Do it every day
This is typically the biggest mistake.
When you’re trying to make a life change it has to become a habit. In order for it to become a habit, you have to do it daily.
Even if it starts out as a few minutes a day you have to get yourself used to it. That’s the only way you’re going to keep it up long enough to see progress.
Otherwise, you’ll miss a day here and there then you’ll forget about your plan altogether.
Make Your Life Changes Stick
No matter how fast you’re going, when you’re driving in circles you’re always going to end up in the same place you started.
It’s time to let go of processes and things that are making it harder for you to change. You want better for yourself, this is the only way you’re going to get it.
Put that dreadful lifestyle behind you starting now.
You can do it.
