“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
Getting started with doing what you deep down want to do in life can be hard.
No matter if what you want is to start exercising, create your own business on the side, write a book, see other parts of the world, improve your relationship with yourself or something entirely else.
But often we make getting started a lot harder than it needs to be by standing in our own way.
So in today’s article I’d like to share 3 things you need to stop doing to step out of your own way and make it so much easier to actually get started instead of just keep dreaming about it.
When you fail, make a mistake or things simply don’t go as well as you had hoped then how do you feel?
Do you feel sorry for yourself? Well, that’s natural in some situations and too an extent.
But do you get stuck in that mental state too often and for far too long?
If that’s the case then this guide is for you.
One of the most powerful habits that I’ve picked up in the past 10+ years is to stop being pessimistic and to think in a more optimistic and constructive way instead.
It makes life feel lighter and not so burdensome.
It opens up new paths towards where you want to go and it helps you to more easily overcome setbacks (and often get something good out of them).
You’ll feel less worried and sorry for yourself and more motivated to keep taking action.
So the benefits of optimism are great.
But how do you adopt this habit?
“Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week.”
There are many important things in life.
Your family and friends. A hobby perhaps. Working out and staying healthy. The most important relationship in your life. And reading, learning and growing as a person.
But finding the time for what is most important in life is not always easy. It sometimes feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day.
But even if it may not feel like it, there are often ways to improve how you use your attention and your time. This week I’d like to share 6 of the best questions I have found for doing just that and for shaking yourself out of a rut.
