We have the ability to choose how to live our life, right? Sure, the benefits of making the right choices are immense and the feeling of fulfillment even better. Are you living a life with purpose? While living with purpose won’t guarantee higher paychecks and fancy property, there is a desire to be something bigger than yourself. You want to be part of movements that positively impact the world and leave a legacy behind for future generation.
Call it faith, mindfulness, or whatever it is you wish to align yourself with. This sense of anchor makes it possible to navigate through life by when you are able to visualize your existence on earth for a specific reason, which in turn enables you to spend more time to find your calling.
Now I want to tell you about the changes you should to practice in order to give your Life happiness and fulfilling:
1. STOP comparing yourself with other people
First of all, if you want to change your life or achieve something you don’t have now you need to actually get off your but and do something about it! Don’t waste your time and energy by looking what your neighbor has, but work on what can give you and your family happiness and fulfilling.
Second, you need to remember that if you want to have more you have to give more. Live in the moment, stop regretting the past, it’s in the past and cannot be altered. Stop fearing the future because today is what we have, live it and make the most of it!
Stop trying to live up to some false standard of perfection because that has no basis in reality. Just enjoy what you have and work hard if you want more! You will achieve it!
2. Be “All in” what you do
If you’re at work, focus on doing your job the best you can. It will be noticed. If you are outside with your family, than be there and enjoy this time together, do not touch your smartphone (this is a illness of these days, that I don’t want to talk about it in this post).
Stop trying to multi-task and dividing your attention in a hundred places. Whatever you’re doing at the moment, give it your full focus and be all in.
3. Learn the difference between needs and wants
If you want to take control of your finances you need to understand the difference between needs and wants.
Needs are things that you can’t live without, primary ones – such as food, water and a roof over your head.
Wants are as like upgrades. They sure are nice to have but you’ll pay a premium for them. I am pretty sure that you are quite understand me. Here are a few examples:
You need food to stay alive, but you want to go out to eat at a fancy restaurant in the corner of your street, instead of cooking at home. You got it, going out to eat will cost far more than eating at home.
You need a car to get to and from work, but you want the high end model with leather seats and moon-roof. You can bet your but you’ll pay more for those fancier features.
If money is tight and you’re looking to cut expenses, look to scale back some of those things you want but don’t really need.
4. Prepare yourself for unexpected situations
You fave to take that risks. In fact, I know a thought that said: “Bad things happen to good people.” It’s not a happy thought but unfortunately it’s the truth.
It has happened to us more than once and you can bet it will happen to you. You need to be prepared for whatever life decides to throw at you.
That means taking care of your health, of your body to ward off disease and injury. It means having enough insurance to take care of your family if something happens to you.
It means having an emergency kit packed and ready to go at a moment’s notice and it means building up a healthy emergency fund to cover unexpected expenses.
5. Build multiple streams of income
So how do you start creating multiple streams of income?
There are plenty of options to choose from: You can start your own small business, invest in dividend paying stocks, rent out part of your home or sell things you don’t need anymore.
When you have multiple streams of income, you’ll be less reliant on your salary and better able to weather any financial storm that comes on your way.
6. Develop good habits and more empathy for others
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, it is not an act, but a habit.
What do you choose to do when you get home from work every night? Hope you use your time by doing some exercise or build up a side business for yourself!
The habits you’ve already formed have a profound influence on your life and if you want to make a change you need to break down those old habits and form newer, more productive ones.
Well all have parts of our life that we wish we could change, but changing deeply ingrained habits is easier said than done. True change will take time and effort, and you have to identify the bad habits and reshaping withe the good ones.
7. Be a positive & optimistic person
Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Research shows that optimists tend to live longer and less likely to became depressive than their pessimistic friends. If you always see the glad half full, you’ll have more energy and you’ll be less likely to give up when the going gets tough. You’ll also be more fun to be around.
We all get pullen in so many directions. But through it all we need is to remember to enjoy life and our loved ones while we have them. So many people are torn apart over money and it is important to remember that money isn’t everything.
