Things aren’t going quite the way you’d like them to?

When things aren’t going quite the way you’d like them to, it’s often the result of not asking yourself the right questions. Some questions are hard to answer because you’re afraid you won’t get the answer you want, others because you really don’t want to know the answer.

Want to see changes in your life? be brave and answer the following questions

What/whom did I make better today?

Ending each day by asking yourself what or whom you made better is a great way to keep yourself grounded and focused on what really matters.

Am I being true to my values?

Do you ever get that feeling that something is a little off in your life? This often happens when little behaviors creep up on you that violate your values. If spending quality time with your family is one of your primary values, but you keep working every weekend, there’s a conflict. If you want that little voice to go away, you’re going to have to do something about it.

If I achieved all of my goals, how would I feel? What can I do to feel that way as I work to achieve them?

The ability to delay gratification in pursuit of your goals is one of the most fundamental prerequisites for success, but delaying gratification doesn’t have to mean being miserable until you cross that finish line. You can achieve more—and have fun doing it!

In what areas of my life am I settling?

When you settle, you accept less than you’re capable of. Sometimes we settle in dead-end jobs. If you don’t ask yourself where and why you’re settling, it’s hard to stop it.

What do I want my life to be like in five years?

Five years is the perfect timeframe: It’s not so far in the future that you can’t imagine yourself there, but it’s not so close that you can’t do anything about it.

What would I do if I wasn’t scared?

From a survival perspective, fear has its purpose. It’s what keeps us from any of the million things that could get us hurt or killed. But fear has a tendency to get carried away. Instead of keeping you safe, it keeps you from improving your life and living your dreams.

Asking the hard questions can be extremely uncomfortable. But we don’t learn and grow by sticking with what’s comfortable.

Habits that have a HUGE impact

Everyone can adopt any habit they want. There’s only one condition though: You need a good reason to make a change

And in 99% of cases, the reason to change comes from personal suffering, sadness, and hurt. At some point, you can’t stand your current behavior anymore.

Don’t worry about how you will change. Focus on what habits you want to form and why.

Someone recently asked me about my current habits, I decided to share them here — with a brief explanation of why the habits are good for.

1. Do a full-body workout with weights 3 times a week

Strength training has several benefits. It protects bone health, muscle mass, keeps you lean, increases energy levels, and prevents injuries.

2. Set 3-4 daily priorities

This is one of the best productivity strategies there is. We all know that focus is what brings us results.

No focus? No results. So how do you focus? By limiting your options and tasks. Elimination is the key.

Be very clear about what you want to achieve every single day, week, and year

3. Read 60 minutes a day

I get it, you’re too busy to read. Or maybe you just don’t like to read.

Reading is essential for your cognition. Reading will also turn you into a better thinker and writer.

4. Sleep 7-8 hours a night

Never sacrifice sleep for anything

5. Walk 30 minutes a day

If you can’t MAKE the time to go for a daily walk, you’re not in control of your life.

But I go for a daily walk because it breaks the pattern of our mundane lives. Look, we can’t deny that life is routine. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

But when you walk outside, you’re forced to be one with the world. It heightens your senses. You can go alone or with someone else. You can have a good conversation. Or you can simply enjoy the surroundings.

6. Follow the intermittent fasting eating pattern

There are some health benefits associated with intermittent fasting.

7. Be present

We’re so focused on our goals that we forget to enjoy the present moment. This is one of my biggest pitfalls.

I really need to remind myself EVERY SINGLE day that I should enjoy the now

8. Practice kindness & love

We all treat our love like it’s a depletable resource. That’s false. Love is unlimited and never runs out. You can give it away as much as you like.

So give this a try. Realize that you have an unlimited resource. Give some of your love and kindness away every day.

9. Journal or write every day

I need to get my thoughts in order every day. I do that by writing. That helps me to focus on what matters to me. That’s why I journal.

10. Drink at least 10 glasses of water

Don’t think that I need to explain the benefits, do I?

The secret to these 10 habits. They are all small. And the daily progress you make seems insignificant.

You will only see the return it has on your life over time. You must stick to these habits until your life gets better.

And when that happens, you’ll keep going — not because you have to, but because you want to.

5 must do’s if you want to be healthy, wealthy and happy?

Small things — if not corrected — become big things.

If you don’t track you can’t correct.

What feedback are you receiving to correct your course?

Where is your destination?

When are you going to get there?

Are you currently off-course? How long have you been off-course?

How would you know if you are on the right course?

How can you minimize the conditions distracting your path?

Organizing Your Life

It’s hard to keep everything organized. And maybe you don’t want to have an organized life. But moving forward will require far less energy if you remove the excess baggage and tension. Everything in your life is energy. If you’re carrying too much — physical or emotional — your progress will be hampered.

1. Organize Your Environment

Is your living space cluttered and messy or simple and neat?

Do you keep stuff (like clothes) you no longer use?

Is your car clean or is it just another place to keep your clutter?

Does your environment drain or improve your energy?

2. Organize Your Money (and become wealthy)

Do you have unnecessary debt?

Do you know how many dollars you spend each month?

Do you know how many dollars you make each month?

Are you making as much money as you’d like to be?

What’s holding you back from creating more value in other people’s lives?

Most people don’t track their expenses. But if they did, they’d be shocked how much money they waste on stuff like eating out.

Invest Big In Your Relationships

Are your relationships the most meaningful and enjoyable part of your life?

Do you spend enough time nurturing the relationships that really matter?

Do you maintain toxic relationships that no longer serve you?

Are you authentic and honest in your relationships?

4. Become Extremely Healthy And Fit

Do you eat with the end in mind?

Are you conscious of and in control of the foods you put in your body?

Does the food you eat improve or worsen the other areas of your life?

Does your body reflect your highest ideals?

Is your body as strong and fit as you want it to be?

Are you healthier now than you were three months ago?

5. Connect Deeply With Your Spiritual Side And Develop A Clear Purpose For Your Life

Do you have a sense of purpose in life?

How much power do you have in designing your future?

When you organize your spiritual life, you become clear on what your life is about. You become clear on what you stand for, and how you want to spend each day. You develop a conviction for what really matters to you, and what is a “distraction.”

6. Become A Master Of Your Time

How much of your time do you feel in complete control of?

Is your time being wasted on things you don’t intrinsically enjoy?

Are the activities you spend your time doing moving you toward your ideal future?

Are you spending most of your time furthering your own agenda or someone else’s?

What activities should you remove from your life?

What would your ideal day look like?

What activities could you outsource or automate that take up your time?

Until you organize your time, it will disappear and move quickly. Before you know it, you’ll wonder where all the time went.

Once you organize your time, it will slow down. You’ll be able to live more presently. You’ll be able to experience time as you want to. You’ll control your time rather than the other way around.

Look back on all the things you did today. Did you act like the person you wish to become?

If you repeated today every day for the next year, realistically, where would you end up?

What activities must happen daily for you to live exactly how you want to be living? You may have several things in the way of your ideal day right now, but are you getting closer?

If you were to consistently live your ideal day, where would you be in one year from now? Where would you be in five years?

Stop What You’re Doing and Get Organized

The fastest way to move forward in life is not doing more. It starts with stopping the behaviors holding you back.

Do you worry?

IMG_5377
IN WHAT SITUATION DO YOU WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHERS ARE THINKING?
When you post something on Facebook?
How you run your business?
With your parenting?
Your body image?
Anything and Everything all the time?
WHEN WE WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK, WE’RE GUESSING. THERE’S NO WAY WE COULD EVER KNOW. NO MATTER HOW MUCH WE THINK WE DO, WE DON’T! 
Why?
Because you don’t know what triggers anybody. What past experiences are responsible for making them think the way they think.
You’ve done this before where you’re wondering, “Are they from the right party or the left party?” You don’t care, but you’re like, “I need to process this…Wonder whats their background? Do they live here? Do they always…”
We want to know more information because our brain hates the unknown. It likes very specific things so that we can process. It’s not to judge. I mean, well, maybe that’s for some people. But, for most of us, the reason why we want to know more is about having information to process.
NOW, WHAT I’M ABOUT TO TELL YOU IS GOING TO HURT A LITTLE BIT, BUT IT’S ONLY BECAUSE I LOVE YOU. THE REASON WHY WE WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK IS BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE SOMETHING ELSE TO WORRY ABOUT…LET THAT SINK IN FOR A SECOND.
People who are very busy with their own lives and dreams worry very little about what other people think.
THE REASON WHY WE DO THAT – AND THIS IS GOING TO HURT A LITTLE BIT, TOO –  IS WE’RE UNDERDEVELOPED. THIS IS JUST THE TRUTH. AN UNDERDEVELOPED INDIVIDUAL WILL WORRY ABOUT WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK BECAUSE IT’S WHERE THEY GO FOR INSTANT GRATIFICATION.
We often say that we worry about what others think because we’re people pleasers, right? But I don’t want you to confuse people pleasing with kindness. People pleasers are dream chasers. You’re never going to accomplish that dream. It’s an underdeveloped way of being – because you’re so worried about pleasing other people simply because it’s instant gratification.
There’s nothing you can do to change what other people think. So, when you start focusing on doing that impossible task, guess what creeps in? Self-doubt. And when we have self-doubt, we get weak.
Self-doubt is weakness. Meaning, boundaries come down. And then we let other people’s agendas become our focus.
You can’t please everyone. You have to allow people not to like you. You have to allow people to be upset with you.
At the end of the day, it’s not about stopping to care about what people think. Rather, it’s about being free from caring about something you simply cannot know. That something – worry – robs you of your own dreams and instill fears in you.
And who has  time for that?

Whats your purpose

IMG_6915Search the word purpose on google and you’ll get over 100,000 results! Clearly, this is a super hot topic. Millions of people around the world are constantly searching for more, for better, for SOMETHING meaningful.

But the idea that we were each born with one thing that’s our purpose, is silly, and limiting. That’s why we get so caught up in asking ourselves: “Is this my purpose? Is that my purpose?” We’ve made such a big deal about the fact you have a singular life’s purpose, it’s no wonder people get freaked out about identifying the right thing to take action on.

WE DON’T NEED TO SEARCH FOR OUR LIFE’S PURPOSE. IT’S ALL ABOUT EMBRACING THE FACT THAT OUR LIFE SERVES A PURPOSE. AND THAT IS… SERVING OTHERS..

QUESTION: What do you get so wrapped in that you forget all other things? I mean, you’re so consumed with this passion that, all of a sudden, basic everyday life events are taking a back seat! You barely remember to:

  • Eat
  • Check your phone
  • Sleep

This thing – whether hobby or topic or activity – just results in you losing all track of time!

Perhaps it’s something you’ve read about. Or a cause you stumbled across on YouTube. Maybe it’s a daily hobby that goes back to your childhood. Whatever it is… you can’t get enough of it!

WELL, THAT’S ONE OF THE MEASURES (HOW TIME FLIES!)

I’ve had many purposes (and so have you), and I know I have many more (so do you) to serve in the time that I have here on earth.

REMEMBER, WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TODAY, MAY NOT BE THE SAME AS YESTERDAY.

Hopefully, we’re all growing, changing and evolving right?
