10-steps-living-a-wonderful-life

Do you ever feel like you are stuck in a rut? Do you ever feel that deep down you are capable of so much more. I honestly believe that if we actually realized what we were capable of, we would really astound ourselves. I have put the following steps together to help you to take action today and start living the wonderful life that you deserve.

1. Take Action Right Now

The first and most important step to long lasting life change is to decide what you want, and to do something about it right now! Not tomorrow when you get home from work, not at the weekend when you will have more time, and not waiting until the summer when the sun is shining. Decide what you want, believe that it is possible for you and take action today! You owe it to yourself. Follow these steps to get into the right mindset and help to keep you on track with your exciting goals and dreams of the future.

2. Seek And You Will Find

Do you have a list of exciting goals for your future? Read this article about goal setting and take the time to complete this empowering exercise. Get the help from friends and family members with any advice that can help you, invest in a great book, DVD or audio program from one of the many personal development giants such as Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy or many others. There is a wealth of knowledge available that will help you and keep you on track with your goals.

3. Get Ready For Change

Just like the world around us is changing, we too need to change. Not just to change for the sake of change, but change due the conscious decision you have made to live a better life. It can be so easy to let days, weeks and perhaps even years drift past as we put off our goals for another year or until the time is ‘perfect’. Today is the perfect day. Decide that enough is enough and today is your day to change. By creating a solid personal development plan for yourself, you will have more control over the changes that will have a positive influence in your life.

4. Take Ownership Of Your Plan

When you create a list of exciting goals and dreams for your future, make the decision to take ownership of your plan. Make the decision to take control of your life and the wonderful journey ahead of you. Make the positive choice that the rest of your life is going to be the best of your life. Remember, the action that you take today will influence the person that you will become tomorrow.

5. Enjoy Your Journey

There are many different paths that we can choose that can make up a journey, and when you have a choice, always try to choose the path that you will enjoy the most. Make the decision to do more things that appeal to you, and in return the wonderful changes that you are looking for will become so much more fun and enjoyable. Choose the people who you enjoy to be with, that can help you change along the way. Grow great friendships with people that you already know and nurture new friendships with others that you do not not know that well yet.

6. Keep Moving

On your journey in life there will be many road bumps along the way. You need to keep going and push on through when you are faced with a difficult part of your journey in life. Keep focused on your exciting goals, stay committed to your journey, and keep your positive momentum going. With the right frame of mind you will reach your journey sooner than you think. Self development is an exciting life long journey. Always remember to stay focused on your destination, but be sure to enjoy the journey along the way. The journey of life is not a race but rather a wonderful adventure full of experiences, made up of many steps. Each step along the way is a chance for personal growth, happiness and a rich life.

7. What Are Your Goals?

Your goals that you have for yourself form a powerful image of the person that you are and also that of the person that you want to become. It is very important that you keep your thoughts and mindset in line with your goals. Are you really sure what you want to achieve are really your goals? Or is society telling you what you must have, and what you must become to be happy? Be true to yourself and your journey will become more real and more true to who you really are. When you and your thoughts are working together, that is when real long lasting progress will be made.

8. Inspire Others

As you begin to make progress along the way, try to help and motivate others to do the same. Why not encourage others to set goals for themselves and to feel more positive about their future. Suggest great books for others to read that might change their habits and inspire them to grow and flourish. By helping others to grow and develop, you will be more likely to also grow and bloom into the person that you wish to become.

Each of us need all of us, and all of us need each of us. ~ Jim Rohn

9. One Step At A Time

We have all heard of the famous saying “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” This is so true, and these are wise words to remember as you take the first step on your exciting journey to a new life and a new you. The size of your goals are only limited by the size of your thoughts. Break free from the past, take the empowering decision to take one step at a time, no matter how small towards the person that you wish to become and the life that you want to live.

10. Show Gratitude

Get into the positive daily habit of writing down three things in your life that you are grateful for. When I started this wonderful habit, I began to really appreciate my life, my health and the people who I love around me. I made this a daily habit after using the Five Minute Journal.

The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, it starts feeling like one.

 
I hope that these 10 steps will inspire you to take positive action and start living the life that you really deserve. Starting today, why not start your own gratitude journal, write out a list of your goals, make the decision now to change and enjoy the wonderful journey ahead of you.

6 Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

The term ‘bucket list’ has become quite popular in recent years. It has been used in pop culture references and as a casual topic of conversation when someone wants to do something. Chances are, you have heard someone say, “Oh, that’s on my bucket list!” But, a bucket list is more than just a fantasy, an out of reach dream or an excuse to say that you want to do many things, only to never follow through on them.

There are actually many benefits to creating a bucket list, if you just put in the time, the thought and the dedication into it. Making a bucket list is a perfect way to set your life goals and to stay focused on making them a reality. Still not 100% convinced? Let’s take a look at six reasons why you really should create a bucket list. Maybe, by the end of this article, you will be ready to put together one of your very own.

1. It Gives You a Purpose

While putting together a bucket list won’t tell you what the meaning of your life is, it can help to give you a purpose to your life. A bucket list should be more about the major goals that you have for yourself, rather than a bunch of fun little things that you might want to do. A bucket list gives you something to get out of life and allows you to stay focused while you are doing it.

Have you ever been bored, wondering what you’re going to do this weekend to fill up your free time? A bucket list can give you that answer, encouraging you to always work towards the things that you truly want to do and experience in life.

2. It Brings Your Goals to Life

As stated above, a bucket list should be about exciting goals that you have for yourself. But, it is also an opportunity to hone in on those goals. Many people have ambitions and even make goals or resolutions for themselves each year only to be forgotten a few days later. But, when you have a specific list of goals written down, it can help to make you more motivated and focused to achieve them.

Goals are incredibly important to have, and the fact that your bucket list can make those goals clearer and more tangible is really important.

3. You Will Create Lasting Memories

Memories are one of life’s greatest treasures. As you start to accomplish the things on your bucket list, you will also be making wonderful memories each time. Since you are doing the things you really want to do, those memories will bring you comfort, a sense of achievement and give you something positive to look back on and share with others.

4. It Will Pull You Forward

Have you ever been in a “funk” in life, or maybe you have had bouts of feeling down or depressed that have kept you from doing the things you typically enjoy? No one wants to stay in that kind of mindset for long. Because a bucket list can help to give you a sense of purpose, it can also give you the motivation to pull yourself out of a funk. It can call you to do something new, something different, or something that even challenges you. Sometimes, that’s all a person needs to be pulled out of a tired or depressed state.

Additionally, doing something on your bucket list will help to distract you for a while. That can be a great solution for someone who has anxiety or tends to focus too much on the negative things in life. Sometimes, a distraction can be a welcomed reprieve.

5. You Will Experience Life-Long Learning

When you commit yourself to having new experiences, you are also committing yourself to learning something new. So many people think that learning stops when you finish school, but you can learn so much more simply by living and trying more new things throughout your life. People who embrace this type of lifestyle are called “lifelong learners”. The reality is this; you will never be able to learn everything there is to know. But, because all of us have such a short time on this planet to figure things out, the more experiences we participate in, the more that we will learn and grow. Not only can a bucket list help you to learn things about different cultures, skills, situations, people and personalities.

It can also help you to learn more about yourself. Closing your mind off to the idea of lifelong learning will cause you to become stagnant with your thoughts and your growth. As a human being, you should have a desire to continue to grow and achieve as much as you possibly can throughout your life. Working through your bucket list can help you to achieve that.

6. You Will Never Run Out of Things to Do

If you sit down to make a bucket list, you might write down anywhere from 10-100 things that you really want to do. But, it doesn’t have to stop there. Chances are, as you start to work through some of the things on your list, you will come up with more ideas.

Experiencing new things, and even challenging things, is a great way to get inspired and motivated to continue on that trend. A bucket list can truly be never-ending as you come up with more exciting new ideas and goals for yourself.

Building Your Bucket List and Bettering Your Life

There are so many additional reasons why you should create a bucket list for yourself. Remember, a bucket list is a very personal thing, and the experiences you put on the list should be things that you truly want to do or accomplish. Don’t make them  so unrealistic that you will never plan on committing to. Instead, promise yourself that you will immerse yourself in those experiences.

A bucket list might be something you create to accomplish things before you pass on, but in creating one and diving into new experiences, there is a good chance you will feel more alive than ever!
