Simple things to do to be successful.
Becoming the best version of yourself takes a lot of persistence, patience, and the willingness to adopt good habits. Do not let your goals be just goals, instead, work hard every day to achieve them. And the best way to do this is to form habits that will help you get to where you want to be. Without action, all your goals will be just mere ideas.
Truth is, all people regardless of age and status have the ability to be big in life. We all have so much potential in ourselves. The only difference is that successful people have really worked hard to pursue their dreams in life. They have uncovered their potential through discipline and hard work.
While it’s true that they are lucky, but it’s possibly fair enough to say that both luck and hard work, play a role in their success. Although you can’t essentially have power over the ‘luck’ that you obtain, there are habits that you can embrace and take on to help you become successful and be the best version of yourself.
Here are three of them:
Optimize your mind
The mind is perhaps the most important resource that you have. It’s capable of doing amazing things, and yet often under appreciated. In order to maintain a healthy mind to win in life, you must know how to feed it.
Before rushing out the door and jumpstarting your day, it would be best to consider feeding it with a hearty breakfast. This will help you become more energetic, focused, and be able to make intelligent decisions. Skipping meals will only run the risk of you over eating on your next meal.
There is evidence that the brain does different things at different times of day. It is during morning that the brain is said to be more active. This is considered an ideal time to do work that mainly involves thorough thinking and analysis. A person’s cognitive alertness is activated between two to four hours upon waking up. Therefore, to boost the brain’s effectiveness during this time, it is best to pair it with a good and nourishing breakfast.
Goal, List, Action
How hard it may sound, deciding on your goal is the easiest part. We set goals everyday. Making sure that goal turns into a reality takes a few steps. After you have decided what you want, write it down. Seeing it on paper is real. All the details clearly stated bring the energy of the goal into a feasible reality.
Set a deadline for your goal. Pure motivation to insure your goal becomes a reality.
Make the list of all the activities it will take, every steps, scenarios necessary to accomplish your goal. Do not concern yourself if it looks pretty or not, you are brainstorming at this point and fret not on mentally organizing the written list. Your thoughts need to be focusing on all the actions that needs to be taken, the simpler your task will become.
Once all your ideas and steps are on paper, organize the list. What needs to be done first, that is important what it is not.
The fun begins by taking action on your goal. Do something everyday. It does not have to be eight hours a day, although sometimes the flow comes and you will sit at your desk for twelve and never noticing it all. If you reach a wall, stop and regroup. A cup of tea or coffee on hand can work magic. The important part is to move in the right direction. However, beware of the distractions. Therefore doing something every day it teaches you to develop a discipline. That discipline is what your goal needs to come alive.
Find Someone To Keep You Accountable
This is a hard one, founding someone who is passionate about you being successful and making sure you hit your goal as you are. Someone who is going to call on you, nag you if you are not working and let the distractions take over. Someone that will be your accountability partner. The constant check in with you to make sure it happens with you.
These are just three of the many things we can do to be more successful in life. Remember, it’s now how big the steps are. Even the smallest steps and habits can do big wonders. After all, Rome was not built in one day, therefore, go out there and seize the moment.
