[success]One of the tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon – instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today. ~ Dale Carnegie[/success]
If you’re struggling with anything right now, remember this you don’t get a harvest without plowing the land.
One of the beautiful things in life is that our most difficult challenges can be the most fulfilling. Some of the most amazing people in the world have known struggle and defeat and found their way to success and happiness and so can you.
You already have everything you need to do more than survive but you can never have too many power tools to support you to struggle less and succeed more.
It’s time you discovered you have wings and can fly. You can discover real joy and happiness and achieve wonderful things. Make up your mind that you can do it and you’ll be well on your way to less stress and more success.
1. Don’t cheat yourself out of today
Live today, it’s all you’ve got. Stop looking ahead for the next moment.
You don’t want to wake up one morning and look back on a life filled with things you forgot to enjoy and cherish all because you were busily focused on what might be on the horizon.
Life is short and filled with truly precious moments, some of which have incredible things in store for you, but you’ll never know if you let today fade away because your attention is on tomorrow.
2. Don’t make life harder than it needs to be
We make life complicated, we’re told success is hard, life is hard and our focus turns to getting the hard things done.
Life seems like one endless struggle.
Change the goal and begin with the easy things like calling people back when you say you will, being on time for your meetings, staying in integrity, eating healthily. You’ll discover it’s the easy things you haven’t done that have made life harder than it needs to be.
3. Let go when you should
There is an ideal person for you. Don’t hang on when you can see that the person you’re with isn’t the one. If all you get out of the relationship is one big headache without much fulfillment, then you know it’s time to walk away.
Don’t hesitate. Your better future awaits. Value yourself and you will be valued. It is no small gift.
4. Don’t worry about getting more stuff
What really counts in life is how well it’s lived. As you fill each day with kindness and love and compassion, you’ll find you receive more of what you want and that every little thing really does add up to bigger things in your world.
Create a habit of saying ‘this is a great day’ and before too long you’ll look back at a string of good days and be thankful.
5. Make friends with your problems
Don’t expect to go through life without a problem. Everyone gets them.
Bring a positive mental attitude towards every problem and you’ll become a bigger, greater and more successful person. Face your struggles more successfully by acknowledging how much you really can do and then do something.
Remember how you spend your days is how you spend your life.
6. Don’t miss the point of helping others
Helping others helps you. The beauty of it is that whenever you help others experience their dreams, you will experience yours.
These are the things that give life it’s magic.
Never underestimate the difference you can make in the world, don’t give back, just give.
Don’t be kind because you think someone is worthy. Be kind because it’s who you are, and because you understand the vital difference your kindness makes in smoothing over a rough patch on another’s path.
7. Resist getting caught in other people’s bad moments
If someone is having a bad moment, don’t allow them to drag you into it with them. Refuse to have bad days just because your friend is having one, you’ll be doing them a big favor.
Remind them they could choose to believe that in each day, in all things, no matter how black they seem, there are fragments of beauty if they look for them.
8. Discover who you are
Choose to wake up every morning being the person you’d like to be.
If you’re not aware of becoming who you want to be, chances are high that you’re busily becoming the person you don’t want to be. Take the time to learn who you are and surround yourself with others who see the brightness that is you.
9. Your success blueprint to struggle less
Once you’ve decided what success means to you, make sure that the choices you make every day are leading you in it’s direction.
Like it or not we’re creatures of habit. And the choices and actions you take over and over become the blueprint for your future.
Concentrate on the things that matter the most to you each day and your lifetime success will be assured. And if you mess up remember every day brings a new beginning and a new ending.
Within you is a bright and shining, wonderful being. As bright as any that’s gone before.
10. Don’t lose hope
You can have what you want. The biggest dreams arrive when the timing is right, when your heart is in it, when the passion is there and when you’re willing to risk it all.
Don’t fall for the lie that there’s not enough to go around. The truth is that if you believe in your capabilities, if you accept in your heart the unlimited possibilities that await you, if you behave as if you’re a powerful, creative being, it becomes your truth.
