32 Sensible Tips to (Finally) Improve Your Life

We are all aware that last year was a bit of a railroad disaster.

For many, this is a year of turmoil, loss, hardship, and failure. The world scene has been, we must say, less than optimistic.

It can be frustrating, worrying, and a big cause of stress.

If you’re like most people, you probably want a chance to improve your life.

Let me tell you, first of all, that it’s okay if your life falls apart right now, for whatever reason.

It’s okay if you’re having trouble even taking something one day at a time. You are not alone.

But you don’t have to be a victim. Just because it’s a disaster right now doesn’t mean it always has to be this way.

There’s something you can do about it.

There are actually a few things you can do about it. I’m going to show you the 32 best things you can start doing right now to improve your life.

However, before we dive into those things, I’d like to briefly discuss the pitfalls of being reactive (and what that means).

The hard truth about reacting

Although the past year has been very difficult, the fact is this: life will not only stop being difficult, or miraculously one day it will begin to go your way all the time.

So, are you a reactive person or a proactive person?

This can be a difficult question to answer honestly.

A truly successful person will tell you that one of the most important keys to living a successful life is to be proactive, not reactive.

Steven Covey identified in 1989 that being proactive is an important character trait of highly effective people:

“People who end up with good work are proactive people who are solutions to problems, not problems themselves, who take the initiative to do whatever is necessary, according to the correct principles, to get the job done.” – Stephen R. Covey,

If you constantly react to the negative things in your life, you will always deal with the adverse effects of such reactions.

On the contrary, if you think and act proactively, those negative things will become smaller and easier obstacles: problems to solve, small obstacles to navigate.

You will not deviate from the path because of your negative reaction to misfortune.

Having this mindset in the first place will help you every step of the journey towards building your life and achieving your goals.

Let yourself go with the flow, as they say. Be flexible, roll up with bumps. Take decisive and affirmative action, regardless of the circumstances.

The plan will fail, but moving with goals will allow you to face life in life terms and take proactive steps no matter your circumstances.

Because the truth is:

Many people sit around waiting for things to happen to them, good and bad.

Stop waiting and start doing. It’s not just internet memes that sound interesting. It’s real life.

So what things can you start doing now to improve your life? Let’s dive into those 31 things.

32 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Life

1) Identify the chaos

People will often say that we all have the same number of hours in a day, but individual circumstances invalidate that claim. That’s not true.

Some people have major obligations or setbacks specific to class, race, health issues, or family situations.

Despite this, there are still ways to remove unnecessary burdens and clutter from your life.

Look at your personal situation honestly. Do you run frantically every day trying to do all sorts of things? Do you always seem to be busy?

If you run everything frantically, you will find yourself at the end of your life faster than if you took the time to walk slowly.

Understanding what keeps you too busy and identifying the source of the chaos is an important first step in organizing your life.

Being panicked is not the way to achieve your goals. Calm and proactive actions will put you on the fast track to an orderly and successful life.

If your life seems like a total disaster right now, identify each of the elements that make it so.

Once you’ve identified the mess, you can start organizing it and start eliminating what’s unnecessary.

2) Don’t waste energy complaining

So your life sucks.

It can be very bad. Like very bad. “You don’t even want to know” is bad.

Then what?

If your life is ruined, it may be tempting to complain about it all the time. And it doesn’t matter.

It is legitimate to weep over all the terrible things that have happened to us, the things we have lost, and how difficult our lives are.

But there is a difference between acknowledging our difficulties and complaining about them.

Adopting a “woe to me” attitude won’t get you anywhere quickly.

Having a victim mentality is far from healthy, and it is not constructive.

Here are some great ways to understand this mindset and the people who have it.

Instead, focus your energy on constructive things, taking proactive and non-reactive steps to organize your life and achieve your goals. Complaining never took me anywhere.

Stop blaming other people or situations and look for ways your problem can be solved. Don’t focus on things you can’t control.

Once you have solved a problem or solution that you can control, it is up to you to take the initiative and start acting.

This is where you need to figure out your steps first. If you have a big problem, it won’t be solved in a day. You should use your analytical skills to plan what steps you should take.

Make sure to set realistic steps as well. If you give yourself a series of unrealistic tasks that you will have to complete one day, it will only cause disappointment.

But setting tasks that you can actually do will give you the motivation to keep going and finally achieve what you need to achieve.

And remember, consistency is essential if you want to be proactive.

3) Be grateful

It may not seem like an important step in organizing your life, but being grateful will go a long way in life, no matter what stage you are at and no matter the circumstances of the disorder.

Practicing gratitude will help you when times are tough. This will prevent you from giving up in the face of adversity and falling into a spiral of distractions.

Also, being scientifically grateful is very good for you. There is a wide variety of positive benefits, both mental and physical.

Showing gratitude will help you make positive decisions and be proactive (non-reactive) at every step of life in order.

This will change your attitude, which will create a new reality full of positivity and opportunity.

Here are many great things you can do in times of depression.

4) Find your resilience

When your life falls around you, it is easy to compare it with others. I once felt like you, unable to come forward, watching everyone around me build their lives.

So what makes them different? How come others seem to have a very well-done life?

One word:

They’re holding it. They survive and stay on top of themselves, even as life continues to bring them down.

Without resilience, most of us let go of the things we want. Most of us strive to create a life worth living.

I know this because until recently I had a hard time improving my own life. I was in a mess, and I had gotten into a pit so deep that it seemed impossible to reverse everything.

Through years of experience as a life coach, Jeanette has discovered the unique secret to building a formidable mindset, using methods so easy that you’ll kick yourself for not trying it out sooner.

And the best part?

Unlike many other life coaches, Jeanette’s entire focus is on putting you in the driver’s seat of your life.

5) Organized

If you can not understand where everything went wrong, or where to start putting your life together, start with a list.

Start writing down what you do in a week: how much time you spend doing things like watching TV, playing video games, etc. If you haven’t tracked your expenses and what you’re buying, this is always a good time to start.

Once you have an idea of where your time is going, where your resources are going, and what you devote your energy to, you can start organizing your life.

Eliminate anything that isn’t beneficial and start making proactive lifestyle choices.

Your life is a mess because you let it fall apart. That’s not to say you’re the only reason. External difficulties can, and do, play an important role, but in the end you are responsible for your own destiny.

There is no room to make excuses if you want to improve your life.

6) Find the starting point

If you’ve read this far, and you’re still not sure how to proceed, that’s fine.

Finding a place to start is often the hardest part of the journey to improve yourself and your life.

It’s okay not to be sure where to start.

However, think about it carefully. Think about your future. What kind of things do you want to achieve? What kind of lifestyle do you dream of achieving?

Imagining life for yourself, what’s the matter with that life that will make you happy?

Think about the details.

These elements will start to give you an idea of where you will end up and where to launch from.

If you wanted to change your career, what career would you want? And what stands between you and gets it?

If you want to make more friends, how can you be more social?

Breaking that desire down into practical steps will get you to square one. If they still look too big, divide them even smaller.

Even the smallest step forward counts as a start. And once you have a starting point, nothing can stand in the way of your journey, only problems to be solved and work to be done.

Here are many great personal development goals that you can use as a starting point.

7) Think about your dreams constantly

There is a lot of power in mind. We are made of our thoughts, good and bad; What we think has a direct effect on our perspective, our happiness, and our success in the real world.

Self-realization, the full realization of one’s potential, begins with your thoughts.

And when you constantly think about your goals and dreams, you are much more likely to achieve them.

So think about them all the time, it will help you focus your energy, stay on track and stay away from distractions.

The subconscious mind is powerful, and so is the way we think.

Studies at Yale have shown that the subconscious mind is much more active than previously thought.

This suggests that elements in our lives can selectively activate goals or motives that already exist.

Thinking about your dreams constantly will keep them focused, no matter the external input.

Never underestimate the power of your mind.

8) Turn those dreams into goals

Dreams exist as ideas, in our minds. Hope for the future, something theoretically possible.

However, a goal has a goal and a path to achieve it.

Having dreams is a big part of bringing your life together. Without dreams, nothing in your life changes.

But if they keep dreaming, your life will remain the same. No genius grants your wish.

But if you turn that wish into a goal, you can grant it yourself, with hard work and proactive (not reactive) actions.

Think about the details involved in achieving your dreams. Start exposing what will be needed, and then start making gestures.

When there is a real way to achieve your dream, it is no longer a dream, it is a goal that you can achieve.

You will be surprised how quickly focused efforts will help you organize your life and achieve your dreams.

Here are 4 golden rules for setting goals (you know, so you actually achieve them):

1) Set goals that really motivate you:

This means setting goals that matter to you. If you are not interested in what you are doing, or do not care much about the result, then you will have a hard time taking action.

Focus on setting goals that are a high priority in your life. Otherwise, you will end up with too many goals and will not take action. To find out what is important to you, write down why your goals are valuable.

2) Set SMART goals.

You’ve probably heard this acronym before. It is popular because it works. Here’s what it means:

Specialization: Your goals should be clear and well-defined.

Mesurable: Label the exact quantity and date. For example, if you want to reduce expenses, how much do you want to reduce?

Ttainable: Your goals should be achievable. If they are too difficult, you will lose motivation.

Lift: Your goals should align with where you want to go and what you want to do.

Time-bound: Set a deadline for your goal. Deadlines force you to do something and not procrastinate.

3) Set your goals in writing

Don’t rely on your own brain to remember your goals. Write down each goal physically, no matter how small. Putting a line through your goals will give you the motivation to keep going.

4) Create an action plan.

You won’t reach your big goal in one day. You need to write down individual steps to get there. Cross them out as you complete them to give you more motivation.

9) Work hard

Don’t underestimate the value of hard work.

As John C. Maxwell said,

“Dreams won’t work unless you do.”

If you are going to improve your life, you must be willing to work to get there.

No one said it would be easy.

So don’t shy away from the hard work you’ll need to achieve the kind of life you want.

And remember, hard work doesn’t just mean “running frantically trying to do too many things.” It causes rash disease, and it is not beneficial.

Focus your efforts and don’t leave if things get a little tough. The reward is an orderly life, with your goals always getting closer.

10) Focus your energy

There’s no point wasting energy on something that won’t get you closer to your goals.

So when you start putting your life together, ask yourself: Will this bring me closer to achieving my goals? Otherwise, there is no need to waste your energy and time on it.

Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your quality of life just to achieve your goals. Life is more about what happens on the way. That should be the definition of our success, not just the goal.

The main reason you want to improve your life may be that you are currently unhappy about it. If you don’t do things that make you happy along the way, then it really doesn’t make sense.

Make sure you do what you love, whatever your goals are, and keep that energy focused on what’s important.

11) Surround yourself with positivity

We already talked about the power of positive thinking in point 6, but positivity is more than just thoughts.

Our environment can have a powerful effect on our perspective. In many ways, it shapes who we are.

If we choose to surround ourselves with like-minded people, or who are always pessimistic, it will be difficult to rebuild their lives.

As you think more and more positively about your future, your goals, and your life, make sure you surround yourself with positive things.

Locking yourself in positive energy will lead to less stress, better coping ability, and tend to be limitless.

Always try to see yourself in a positive light. A positive and caring person is essential to finding success. Inspirational books and uplifting music are a great way to build positive energy into your life.

Make sure your living room is bright, clean, organized, and gives you joy. Otherwise, it will be even more difficult to improve their lives.

Here are some great ways to find inner peace.

12) Sacrifice

It’s not always easy to put your life together. There may be several important reasons behind why you haven’t done so to date.

These obstacles and obstacles may seem impossible to overcome.

Achieving the kind of life you want will not be without sacrifice. Don’t be afraid to sacrifice and do whatever it takes to reach a good point in your life. Success most of the time requires sacrifice.

That might mean making some pretty tough decisions. Remove the vices of your life. Ending a toxic relationship. Allowing yourself to heal from the trauma, even if it hurts. These things require sacrifice.

It’s not easy, but when you let go of that burden, those negative things, you can spread your wings and fly.

13) Reevaluate your habits

Good habits lead to success. Sometimes the first step in organizing your life is to rework your habits.

I’ve always wondered where my bad habits came from. Suddenly, it seems, there is another one, or the same one coming back.

There are many interesting psychology behind habits, how they are formed, and how to stop them. Here’s a very interesting NPR article about it.

Redefining your habits will not be easy, but one day at a time, with a little self-discipline, you will reap the benefits that come from having a life full of good habits, not bad ones.

Developing conscious habits will bring you happiness and satisfaction through every part of your life.  This book, The Art of Mindfulness, is a wonderful practical guide to help you develop a life full of consciousness.

14) Define and face your fears

Many of the problems in our lives, and our society, come from fear-based reactions. Anxiety is instinctive, and something that, without proper awareness, can ultimately dictate our lives.

Many problems in our society are based on fear. Fear of something different, fear of perceived (unreal) threats, fear of race, and so on.

In your life, what are you afraid of? What makes you hesitate to achieve your goals?

Understanding and defining your fears is a big step in overcoming them.

Once you understand fear, it is much easier to change your response to it. Facing your fears will lead you to success.

Fear can prevent you from improving your life. Facing your fears is a big step in the right direction.

15) Accept setbacks

No matter how proactive, sober, prepared, and dedicated you are to improving your life, there will be setbacks.

There is no other way. Life is full of contingencies; There is no guarantee of how things will turn out.

That’s not a reason to be disappointed or give up.

Proactive decision-making can lead you to success. As we talked about at the beginning, rolling around with bumps and going with the flow will help you improve your life, no matter the external circumstances.

However, being reactive is not going to happen.

So accept the setbacks when they come. Don’t let them delay you or stop you in your lane.

There is always a way to overcome it and continue to approach life in order.

If everything seems too much, remember to take one step at a time. Even the smallest step forward is still progress.

It’s only a matter of time before you have your life together and make all your dreams come true.

16) Hang out with the people they add to your life

Stop spending time with people who make you depressed. That doesn’t add anything to your life.

You will live a much more successful and fulfilling life if you choose to associate with positive and uplifting people.

So how do you find out who you should spend time with?

It’s pretty simple. Ask yourself these 2 questions:

Do they make you feel better after spending time with them?

Do you feel more optimistic and positive about life?

If you can answer yes to those questions, make a conscious effort to spend more time with them. Positivity will infect you.

If you continue to date toxic people who look down on you and want to get something from you, you will not benefit at all. In fact, you will lose and not realize your potential.

Plus, according to a 75-year-old Harvard study, our closest relationships may have the biggest impact on our overall happiness in life.

So, if you want to improve your life, pay close attention to who you spend most of your time with and make the necessary changes.

“You’re the average of the five people who spend the most time with you.” – Jim Rohn

17) Write your own speech

If you really want to improve your life, here’s something a little unusual that I highly recommend: write your own speech.

Okay, this may sound a little scary.

But listen to me. Because it can be a very powerful thing to do.

I learned about this exercise from professional life coach Jeanette Devine.

And I did it myself recently.

I wrote a speech describing my future life that I didn’t know about.

At first it scared me. I don’t want to think about death. But the more I think about it, the more sense it makes sense. My life is limited. If I’m going to live a purposeful life, I have to embrace this.

I have to choose to live my life to the fullest.

So I started writing.

I wrote the most complete and complete compliments I could gathered. Everything I want someone to say about me, I throw away.

And in the end: I’m stuck with that: my vision for the future.

18) Get a pet and take care of it

You may not expect this, but there are several reasons why you should get a cat, dog, rabbit, or whatever animal you want.

The most important reason is that it will teach you responsibility. After all, you have to take care of another live animal and make sure it survives, thrives and leads a happy life.

It will not only teach you to be more responsible, but it will also show you that there is more to life than what is going on inside your head. Your actions really have an impact on others.

In addition, having a pet is also healthy for you. According to research, having a dog nearby can cause lower stress levels for both adults and children.

19) Stop pursuing happiness with external attachments

This is difficult to achieve and I don’t blame anyone for thinking that happiness is beyond themselves.

After all, aren’t we happier when we make more money or buy that shiny new iPhone?

While these experiences may give us a temporary boost in happiness, they may not last long.

And once that temporary joy is gone, we’ll return to the cycle of wanting that high again so we can be happy.

Although it is okay to enjoy temporary joy when it presents itself, we should not rely on it for lasting happiness.

An extreme example that highlights the problem with this is drug addicts. They are happy when they use drugs, but miserable and angry when they are not. It’s a cycle that no one wants to miss.

True happiness can only come from within.

“Happiness comes from within. To be happy is to know yourself. It is not in the material things we have, it is the love we have and show to the world.” – Angie Karan

Happiness is our inner feeling, along with how we interpret life events, which brings us to the next point…

20) Find yourself

Having a concrete sense of self is an important part of your being. Without it, you will find goals that are more difficult to determine and your needs more difficult to understand.

Understanding what your strengths are and what you love gives you the confidence and empowerment to reach your potential.

So, if you are looking for ways to improve your life, then know yourself and what motivates you.

If you allow yourself to be happy about who you are, you will find that you are much happier in all areas of your life.

A practical exercise to find out what your unique characteristics are is to make a list of 10 traits about yourself that you are proud of.

This could be your kindness, your loyalty, or the fact that you’re an expert at knitting!

Please note:

Before you can do any work on yourself in the future, you need to reconcile who you are today.

It’s easy to throw away the good things you think of yourself and let negative thoughts take over.

But understanding what your positive traits are and what makes you unique will help you get rid of the negativity and accept yourself.

And if you’re going to find yourself, you have to accept who you are now.

Change, whatever seems to you, will really come from a place of understanding and love.

Here is a beautiful piece from Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh on the power of self-acceptance:

“To be beautiful is to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You have to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit who the other person wants, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true strength lie in understanding oneself, accepting oneself, having self-confidence.

21) Start saving your money

No matter what stage of life you are in, it is always a good idea to focus on building your savings.

In the future, you want financial independence and savings to depend on it.

Making your own decisions, financially, gives you the freedom to make decisions in your life apart from your weekly salary.

Having this kind of freedom means you can change careers whenever you want, go on vacation whenever you want, and help cash-strapped family members.

It also means that if you have a family, or plan to have a family, you can take care of them and help them achieve whatever they want to achieve.

This does not mean that you have to get rich. Achieving financial independence is possible by saving a little money every month and letting it accumulate.

So what’s the best strategy for doing that?

The board popular in financial circles is the 50/30/20 rule. This means that at least 20% of your income must be used for savings. Meanwhile, the other 50% should be allocated for basic needs, while 30% should be used for discretionary items.

22) What makes your juices flow?

One surefire way to organize your life is to find what enlightens you and follow it.

We’re not saying quit your job and start a charity, but if charity is what makes you feel good about yourself, do more.

Stop wasting time watching programs on the Internet. Don’t listen to others who want to offer suggestions for endless episodes of comedy.

Avoid noise. Find your passion, be willing to explore other passions, and do more than what makes you feel alive.

You will start to see positive results from all these amazing steps when you apply them, and not a second before. So close your web browser and get to work!

And remember:

We are all unique and we all have special talents.

You have a better chance of succeeding and making a difference in the world if you do what you love.

And if you are unhappy at work, then it is more difficult to be happy in other areas of your life.

Doing what you love is the basic ingredient to get the best out of yourself. This will help you grow and become as you can.

Being motivated and having a sense of meaning and purpose is essential to live a fulfilling life.

So how can you find what you really like?

According to Ideapod, asking yourself these 8 weird questions will help you figure out what you really want to do in life:

1) What did you like as a child?

2) If you don’t have a job, how do you choose to fill your working hours?

3) What makes you forget the world around you?

4) What topics are close to your heart?

5) Who do you spend time with and what are you talking about?

6) What’s on your wish list?

7) If you have a dream, can you make it happen?

8) What feelings do you want right now?

23) Accept yourself and all your emotions (even negative ones)

According to Psychology Today, one of the main causes of many psychological problems is the habit of emotional avoidance.

However, there is no denying that we all do. After all, no one wants to experience negative emotions.

And in the short term, it may be beneficial, but in the long run, it becomes a bigger problem than avoided in the first place.

The problem with avoidance is that each of us will experience negative emotions. We will all experience suffering.

These emotions are just part of being a living human being.

By accepting your emotional life, you affirm your full humanity.

By accepting who you are and what you are going through, you don’t have to waste energy avoiding anything.

You can accept emotions, clear your mind, and then move forward with your actions.

Negative emotions will not kill you, they are annoying but harmless, and accepting them is much less an obstacle than a continuous attempt to avoid them.

Let me explain how accepting my emotions helped me change my own life.

Did you know that 6 years ago I was miserable, anxious and working in a warehouse?

I never felt at peace because of a recurring problem: I couldn’t learn to “accept” where I was without expecting it to be different.

I used to wish I had a better job, a more fulfilling relationship, and a sense of calm deep within me.

But avoiding and fighting what happened inside only made it worse.

It was only after stumbling upon Buddhism and Eastern philosophy that I realized that I had to accept being “in” the present, even when I didn’t like the present.

I stopped worrying about my work in the warehouse (and what I perceived as a lack of progress in life) and my daily worries and insecurities.

Nowadays, I am rarely anxious and have never been happier.

I live my life moment after moment while focusing on my passion: writing for two million monthly readers of Hack Spirit.

I wrote this book for a reason…

When I first discovered Eastern philosophy, I had to wade through very convoluted writing.

No book filters all this valuable wisdom in a clear and easy-to-follow way, with practical techniques and strategies.

So I decided to write this book myself. Which I want to read when I start.

24) Do what you would say you will do

Doing what you say you will do is a matter of integrity. How do you feel when someone says they’re going to do something and then doesn’t do it? In my opinion, they are losing credibility.

Every time you do what you say you will do, you build credibility. Part of getting your life back on track involves being recognizable and living your life with integrity.

And the fact is this: it is difficult to improve your life if you do not do what you say you will do.

So how can you be sure you’re going to do what you’re going to say you’re going to do?

Follow these 4 principles:

1) Never accept or promise anything unless you are 100% sure you can do it.  Treat “yes” as a contract.

2) Have a schedule: Whenever you say “yes” to someone, or even yourself, put it on the calendar.

3) Don’t make excuses: Sometimes things happen that are out of our control. If you’re forced to break a commitment, don’t make excuses. Take care of it and try to do the right things in the future.

4) Be honest: The truth isn’t always easy to say, but if you’re not rude about it, it will help everyone in the long run. Being perfect with your words means you are honest with yourself and others. You will be a boy or girl that people can trust.

25) Experience everything life has to offer

Don’t be afraid of new experiences. The more experience you have, the more mature and thoughtful you will become.

We only have life once, so enjoy life in every possible way: the good, the bad, the bitter, the love, the heartache, everything!

We only have one chance, so we can also make the most of it.

Here is a great quote from an Osho Spirit Master:

“Experience life in every possible way: good-bad, bitter, dark light, summer-winter. Feel all the duality. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you are.”

26) Take care of your body

If you want to change your life, you have to change more than just the clothes you wear and the words you let yourself think.

Taking better care of yourself will have dramatic results in your life.

Not only from a health perspective, but also from an energy perspective.

When your body is well nourished and in your best condition, you will feel that you can face the world.

When you donate your throat whenever you feel bad about yourself, you can imagine where it takes you, and the answer is not a better life.

And at the end of the day, there is a great connection between body and mind and physical and spiritual.

By listening to the needs of your body, we can become more aware of our emotions and desires.

Make sure the body gets enough vitamins, minerals and is functioning as well as possible.

Having a healthy body and mind will certainly help you get your life back on track.

 

27) Living in the present moment

I thought you’d agree with me when I said:

Life is better when you live in the present moment easily. There are no regrets about the past and no worries about the future. You just focus on the task at hand.

Not only does this make you more productive and focused, but it can also make you happier.

But the question is, how do we reach this state more often when our overactive minds get in the way?

Well, according to the spiritual teacher Osho, we need to practice taking a step back and observing the mind and realizing that we are not our thoughts.

Once we stop identifying with each thought we generate, they will become weaker and weaker and we will be able to live more easily in the present moment, instead of being distracted by future worries or past regrets:

“Your mind has to understand one thing: that you’re not interested in them. When you make this point, you have achieved an amazing victory. Just look at it. Don’t say anything to the mind. Don’t judge. Don’t be punished. Don’t tell them to move. Let them do what they do, any gymnastics allows them to do it; You just watch, you enjoy. It’s just a beautiful movie. And you will be surprised: just looking, there comes a time when the mind is not there, nothing can be seen.”

28) Get rid of fat

When it comes to improving your life, you have to be ruthless by eliminating noise or oil.

Choose your analogy. This can come in the form of someone else, your own thoughts, your lack of ambition, your mother’s relentless pressure to get married, or a host of other things that may appear that prevent you from getting where you want to be.

To improve your life, you need to be a mower.

Do it with your best interests in mind and don’t apologize for it. You may find that you really inspire others to bring their lives together in the process.

One example is your own negative thoughts. Stop it because it just makes life more stressful.

According to Karen Lawson, MD, “Negative attitudes and feelings of helplessness and hopelessness can create chronic stress, which disrupts the body’s hormonal balance, depletes brain chemicals needed for happiness, and damages the immune system.”

So every time you complain, it’s time to pinch yourself and stop it.

Over time, you may stop being negative as you learn to adopt a more positive and optimistic attitude. You will also be more loved and tolerated.

29) Spend time on your relationship

Humans are social creatures. Managing your relationship is an important part of acting together.

According to a 75-year Harvard study, your closest relationship may be the most important factor in a successful and happy life.

Like everything, it takes time to fix it. Make sure you invest enough time in your family and friends and you will definitely thank them later.

30) Focus on getting the job done

We all have goals and ambitions, but without action, they will not be achieved.

So, if you want to take responsibility for your life and get it back on track, start taking action today.

They are even small steps, as long as you keep getting better with your actions, you will eventually get to where you want to be.

31) Organize your belongings

I mean all your stuff, from your sock drawer to your car. Organize your belongings and unite your life as a result.

You don’t have to make drastic changes in your life to see dramatically different results.

You just need to turn a lot of the little things that will accumulate into bigger and more incredible things.

Organizing your belongings is a one-way ticket to reunite you and live a better life, right away.

Here are 5 little tips to organize your life:

  1. Write it all down: Trying to remember things won’t help you stay organized. Write it all down. Shopping list, important dates, tasks, names.
  2. Create schedules and deadlines: Don’t waste time. Maintain a schedule of what you need to do and set goals.
  3. Don’t procrastinate: The longer you wait to do something, the harder it is to do it.
  4. Give the whole house: If you want to be arranged, it means that you need to know where the things you have are. Give your key and wallet a designated place in your home. Keep everything right with tags.
  5. Declutter: Set aside time each week to organize and get rid of things you don’t need.

“For every minute spent organizing, you get an hour.” – Benjamin Franklin

32) At the end of the day, it’s about taking responsibility

I know that no one chooses to be unhappy.

But if you go through a hard time in life, will you be responsible for getting out of this funk?

I believe that taking responsibility is the most powerful attribute we can have.

Because the reality is that YOU are ultimately responsible for everything that happens in your life, including your happiness and unhappiness, successes and failures, and for acting together.

I want to briefly share with you how taking on the responsibility has changed my own life.

Did you know that 6 years ago I was anxious, miserable and worked every day in the warehouse?

I was stuck in a hopeless cycle and didn’t know how to get out of it.

My solution is to destroy my victim mentality and take personal responsibility for everything in my life.

Fast forward to today and my Hack Spirit website helps millions of people make radical changes in their own lives. We have become one of the largest websites in the world on mindfulness and practical psychology.

It’s not about bragging, but about showing how powerful it is to be responsible…

… Because you can also change your own life by taking full ownership of it.

To help you do this, I’ve collaborated with my brother Justin Brown to create an online personal responsibility workshop. We give you a unique framework to find your best self and achieve strong things.

If you want to take control of your life, as I did 6 years ago, then this is the online resource you need.
