Stop Procrastinating NowThat’s a question I’ve asked myself many times.

And I’ve spent many, many hours in the past dreaming about where such a change could take me in life and in the world.

I know many others out there have done that too.

Still – after close to 9 years – one of the absolutely most common issues I get emails and comments about is how to stop procrastinating.

So since the first day of this year I have been working on a new course filled with all the best things I have learned in the past decade and I use almost every day and week.

These are the strategies, exercises and simple step-by-step methods that have helped me to stop putting so many things off. The habits that have been a real life-changer for me.

Don’t Compare Your Life to Someone’s High-Light Reel“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”
Lao Tzu

Today I’d like to focus on a negative habit that creates insecurity within, erodes self-esteem and can make you feel quite unhappy with your own life .

It’s something that has sprung up as we have moved a part of our lives on to the internet and social media.

And that habit is to compare yourself and your life to other people’s high-light reels.

What do I mean by that?

That it’s so easy to start comparing your life to the lives of friends, old classmates or celebrities of all sizes as you each day see how perfect their homes, kids, love lives are and how filled their lives are with wonderful moments.

But is that their whole lives that is shared on Facebook and Instagram?

Victim Thinking“Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.”
Helen Keller

How do you react if something in your life doesn’t go as you wish?

Well, at first you’ll probably feel pain of some sort.

But what happens after that? What do you do after the initial pain?

Do you think of yourself as a victim, as someone with little or no control or power?

Do you slip back into a familiar headspace where you feel sorry for yourself and where you feel like someone – or the whole world – is against you?

I used to get stuck in that destructive and self-esteem sucking way of thinking quite often. And I know that many people get stuck in it from time to time. Or more often than that.

So this week I’d like to share 3 steps that helps me to move out of that headspace and replace it with something better.

“Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.”
Albert Schweitzer

“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”
Henry James

Kindness is often a pretty simple thing to spread in the world.

But we sometimes forget about it. Or don’t remember how it can help us all.

Three things that I like to keep in mind and that help me to try to be a kinder person are these:

  • I get what I give. Yep, some people will be ungrateful, miserable and not reciprocating no matter what you may do. But most people will over time treat you as you treat them.
  • By being kinder to others I am more likely to be kinder to myself. It may sound a bit odd but my experience is that when I am kinder towards others then my self-esteem goes up and I think more highly about myself.
  • It creates a happier place to live in. Being kinder simply makes my own little world a nicer and happier place to live in.

So how can you start spreading the kindness in your daily life?

Here are 15 simple ways to do it.
