4 “No Brainer” Ways to Change your Life…
2 years ago, when I was on vacation in Agadir, Morocco, I was sitting in a local coffee shop by the beachfront Marina with my family, I started to think about what was the BIG change that made me successful in my own online business?
After some thought, I came up with 4 principles that I thought were the main kick-starter for me…
Maybe only those with a certain mindset will be able to truly see it. This is just one of several ways lucky people create their own fortunes.
To put these simple principles into action, here are four tips, (if you like) for creating more luck …
Expect Good Things to Happen. This is so powerful and rewires your brain. It programs you to find good things.
In many cases, those good things were already there, just waiting to be discovered…
But mental programming is strong. It makes us overlook “treasures” that are right in front of our noses.
The brain has to process a ton of input every day — and not everything we see makes its way to our conscious mind.
So, we have to choose what to focus on …
Fortunately, by focusing your conscious attention on the good rather than the bad, you can “train” your mind to find things that contribute positively to your life.
This actually becomes a great habit to have in your locker. Because there are things you may have otherwise overlooked.
2. Be Grateful.
When you start looking for things to be thankful for, you’re likely to find more and more reasons to feel grateful.
And really, gratitude is just another word for feeling lucky.
In my experience, gratitude leads to more energy and motivation. As such, it’s much easier to create positive changes in life when you have a firm foundation of gratitude.
A daily gratitude journal (which can be as simple as writing down one thing you’re grateful for) is a great place to start.
3. Be Generous.
What goes around comes around. You never know if someone you help may find their way to success, or how that favor might be returned to you in an unexpected way.
That doesn’t mean you should do nice things with the intent of someone owing you a favor, though. Instead, developing genuine relationships is key.
It also doesn’t mean you should overextend yourself, trying to help everyone to the point where you’re exhausted. and not making time for yourself Instead, it’s about finding balance.
That balance will look a little different for everyone, depending on your life and obligations.
But even when life is busy, you’re likely to find occasions now and again when you feel inspired and capable of giving someone else a helping hand.
4. Trying New Things.
If what you’re currently doing hasn’t gotten you closer to where you want to be, then take a long look at yourself, isn’t it time to take 2021 by the horns.
Don’t get stuck in a rut. Do something different.
I don’t know why people are constantly doing the same thing over, and over again, and expecting different results?
Several life coaches I know argue that by changing up your routine, you open yourself to new possibilities.
There are both emotional and practical factors at play here …the brain needs new challenges.
On the practical side, trying something new will introduce you to new people, places, and ideas. Any of these things could lead to a totally unexpected opportunity in your professional or personal life.
On the emotional side, consider this: Often, we get stuck in our routines. Even if we think we’re open to change, it’s hard to get out of our comfort zone and change our habits. (And yes, I’ve been guilty of this myself in the past.)
By changing our routine, we mentally open up to positive changes and look at challenges from new angles.
To start, this change can be as big or as small as you’d like.
For example, is it time to change your job?
Or is it time to start small, with taking a new route home from work, reading in the evening instead of watching the news, or signing up for that art class, what about that home business you’ve been considering?
If you’re not sure where to begin, I’d recommend a small change to your daily schedule (like a short morning walk) or picking up a new hobby just for fun.
So, there you go, 4 “No Brainer” ways to change your life. After a year where many have felt powerless or overwhelmed, I hope you find these tips useful for writing a new story for yourself in 2021.
