#1 Be a doer
Platitudes and quotes from the great philosophers and thinkers will inspire.
But without discipline and commitment – you will not achieve meaningful results.
As Leonardo Da Vinci said…
“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.”
When it comes to a life well lived – being a doer beats being a thinker!
All the positive thinking in the world will count for little with out implementation.
#2 Feel Comfortable Saying No
If you want to get more of the important things done – you need to say NO more often.
Especially to energy sapping acquaintances…
Most of us, especially in friendships, hate to offend.
But the truth is that true friends understand and respect your position and priorities.
#3 Turn off the TV
I love this pearl of wisdom from Gavin Nascimento
“Rebellion is not what most people think it is, rebellion is when you turn off the TV [ iphone / socialmedia ] and start educating yourself and thinking for yourself.”
#4 Deal with the stuff going on in your Heart and your Head
You can eat the kale… Drink the alkaline water…. Take the supplements… Do the yoga… Hit the gym. …but if you don’t deal with the stuff going on in your heart and your head, you’re still just as unhealthy ~ Daniel Rengering
#5 Simplifying your life is about having more…
#6 More compassion, less judgment
Live a good life. More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed. More love, less hate. ―
#7 Blessed are the gypsies
Blessed are the gypsies. The makers of music, artists, writers, dreamers of dreams, wanderers and vagabonds, children and misfits: for they teach us to see the world through beautiful eyes.
#8 Stop Complaining
Your complaints, your drama, your victim mentality, your whining, your blaming, and all of your excuses have NEVER gotten you even a single step closer to your goals or dreams. Let go of your nonsense. Let go of the delusion that you DESERVE better and go EARN it! Today is a new day! ~
#9 Successful entrepreneurs make every second count
#10 Take responsibility for your actions
If a person doesn’t want to take responsibility for their actions, they may try to blame others. Don’t accept blame or try to fix things when you’ve done nothing wrong. They need to learn that if they want different outcomes, they will have to make different choices. If you fix things for them, it deprives them from learning to take responsibility and their actions will repeat with different circumstances. You’ll then be the first they’ll blame or try to have fix things for them because you did before. That can lead to a very destructive cycle which will only stop when you do ~ Doe Zantamata
#11 Accept responsibility
Accept responsibility for your actions. Be accountable for your results. Take ownership for your mistakes
