Stuck in a rut? If you feel it’s time to make a fresh start then take a look at our 20 big Life Changing ideas that might point you in the right direction, initiate change, and raise your overall awareness up a notch or two.
You might be a wise person, but still, you know nothing. You can learn from everything and everyone. Each of us are unique individuals with our own lives, hence, we’re all special in our own way. We might learn things quickly, but we often forget things at the same rate and sometimes we need to remind ourselves of the things we’ve learned.
20 Radically Simple Life Changing Ideas
1.What’s your focus, really?
First things first, if you’re not getting what you want out of your life or training then you must be willing to face yourself. Remember this- You’re not what you say you are, you’re what you do. So, start your big change by being honest with yourself. What are you actually doing with your time? Where is your effort going? Are you trying to do too much? Are you spread too thin to really effect a real change? Maybe so.
If your life looks generic, unfocused and undisciplined on paper then your life will follow. It doesn’t matter what you say you want. So, back up, reset, and commit fully to what matters most to you. If you find that something, anything is draining away your energy, focus then burn it down, Cut it back.
2.Money Is Not The Most Important Thing
Most people have the mindset that to get richer, they need to work harder. This is wrong! Sure, working harder will increase your income, but taxes and expenses usually increase at the same time to eat away the benefits. To get rich, learn to have money work for you.
You have to train yourself not to care about money and focus on providing value instead. Also, don’t become too dependent on the stuff you own . Otherwise, the stuff will own you.
The Poor Work for Money, The Rich Have Money Work For Them.
3.Struggle Is Good
Never say “I can’t take it anymore.” Say “Bring it on!”
4.Learn Every Day
You’ve got to train your brain to stay alert. You don’t have to read a book a day to learn every day. Learn from your mistakes. Learn from the people around you , be open to what they can teach you.
5.Give Without Expecting Something In Return
Don’t keep score. You will become a bitter person if you do that. Give solely for the joy of giving. If you get something in return, great, if you don’t, great.
Complaining is the biggest waste of time there is. Either do something about it, and if you can’t, shut up about it.
7.Spend Time With People You Love
That’s your family and best friends. If you don’t have a family, create one. Most people in life are only visitors. Family is for life.
I didn’t get this until recently. A healthy body is where you have to start everything in life. If you can’t build a healthy and strong body, what CAN you build in life?
9.Change your routine
Having a regular routine can be a safe option, but can make your life a little more exciting as well. Try changing something in your routine, such as taking a different route or method of commuting into work. If you’re one of those people who usually says ‘I can’t do that on Tuesday because I normally do …’, then break that cycle and try to do things in a more spontaneous manner. Just because it’s Friday doesn’t mean you always have to eat fish!
10.Do something that scares you
There’s nothing that quite makes you feel as good about yourself as overcoming a fear by completing a challenge. If there’s something that you’ve perhaps always fancied doing but have been too scared to do it, then just go for it! There are many people out there who have been skydiving, for example, and described leaping out of a plane as a ‘life-changing experience.
Say ‘thank you’ to everyone and everything. “Thank you for this beautiful day.” “Thank you for your email.” “Thank you for being there for me.”
12.Don’t Care About What People Think
We all die in the end, do you really think it matters what people think of you?
I don’t mean you should be a pushover. You can be someone that doesn’t take shit and be nice about it. Just don’t insult people, think you’re better than them, or act like an idiot.
14.Don’t Blame People
What’s the point? Do you want to punish them? You don’t do that to people. Also don’t blame yourself — you’re only human.
15.Life Is A Miracle
Take a moment to close your eyes and take a big, deep breath. Now consider everything that just happened. You used your eyes to read a series of words on your computer screen. Your brain interpreted these words so that they meant something to you and you sent a signal to your body to close your eyes and take a deep breath. The human body, and life in general, is an amazing thing that so often we take for granted. Take a moment each day to appreciate the miracle that is life.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is.”
Don’t just sit there, do something. Without action, there is no outcome.
17.Enjoy Small Things
I like clichés because they are true. Especially this one. You know why? Everyone says they know it, but no one lives up to it. They just chase big things.
18.Don’t Take Yourself So Seriously
Yeah, yeah, you’re an individual, and people have to take you seriously, I get it. But at the end of the day, we’re all a bunch of ants trying to chase the same things. Lighten up.
19.Change your outlook
If you think negative thoughts all the time then that’s exactly how you’ll feel! Smiling a lot and being positive will transform you into a more optimistic person. It has been said that people are only as happy as they allow themselves to be-and if you can put aside negative thoughts and be more optimistic, then that will transfer itself to how you feel about life in general. There is even evidence to suggest that people who smile a lot actually live longer!
20.The Power of Belief
There is no more powerful directing force in your life than your beliefs. All too often we limit ourselves by not believing in our ability to succeed. How often have you looked at an outcome – for example being fit, being rich, having lots of friends, or being a successful blogger- and decided, whether consciously or unconsciously, that is it too hard or that it will never happen.
Rather than being limited by your beliefs, you should be empowered by them. What sets the people apart who get to world class is that they have a dream and they believe in themselves. They may not have achieved their desired outcome yet, but they can already envision themselves there, and this is what drives them on.
You might know a lot. But like Socrates, you and I know nothing at all. So we have to keep learning.
I hope these life changing ideas are helpful for you. Press on. You’re going to be just fine.
