How is your life doing today? Would you say that there have been changes or do you feel that you are stuck and don’t know where to go? The Lotto prize may have been the biggest dream of most people. Dreaming that it is the only way that one can be drawn out of poverty, most people would be setting aside a portion of their earnings just to be able to place a bet and pray so hard that they win. Unfortunately, not everyone that bets on it becomes a millionaire. Why? Plainly because it is a game of chance. And to rely your future on this is just like reaching the impossible.
So, why do you think that are you still in the same place as you were years ago? There are actually certain things and events that you should avoid in order for you to finally have the chance to live a much better life. So, here they are:
As much as possible, create a bigger circle.
Never confine yourself with having the same group of people. It is not like you need to avoid your family and friends, but at least, meet new people. Allow yourself to be surrounded by people who can motivate you.
Employees may tend to be with each other during break time. Although this may be unavoidable, you should learn to reach out to other people from different departments. You must realize that when you confine yourself in the same spot, you may be missing a lot of opportunities. For sure, among your close friends, one or two of them may be contradicting everything that you say. They may seem to have a different perspective on life. And although they have the right to their own opinion, it doesn’t mean that you should be living the same life as they have. Explore and discover!
Get rid of your daily routine.
If you start your day exactly the same way as you have always done 10, 20 years ago, STOP! This could be tiring and you may be missing out so much! Why? There are so many things that you can do aside from the usual. Remember that you should allow yourself to learn more. It’s probably time to discover yourself. Always think of it this way — you have the potential to do extra-ordinary things which can be life-changing not only to your own life, but as well as to others.
Be productive! If you are used to sleeping until almost noon, change the bad habit! Learn to sleep at the right time, so you can wake up early and be able to accomplish many things during the day. Go out and see how you can make a difference in your life so that you would no longer be at the same spot as you are 10 years ago.
Never settle for what you have now.
It may be a contradicting statement of what the Church tells us. But I assure you that I am not trying to divert your faith in any way. What I mean by the statement is that you should not allow yourself to stop from dreaming and pursuing your dream. You may be born poor, but do you really have to die poor? I believe that success does not only come to those who have College Degrees. More than the title, one should have the initiative to make things better for his life.
If you are working for a company for the past 10 years and until this time you still experience being short of finances, then there is something that you should do about it. Resigning may be such a brutal move. And I don’t recommend that. The best way to take you out of that hole is to look for another income that can help you sustain your needs and that of your family. Start with something small. Learn how you can make this small business of yours to become profitable. If at first, you don’t succeed, there is always another chance to get things straightened out. Sometimes, it takes a few shots before you finally hit on the right kind of business that can make you successful.
The Ultimate Goal
While entrepreneurs may have their eyes on fame and fortune, there is one thing that can completely make one’s life a success — and that is happiness. If you have become successful with the kind of business that you have, what was the motivation? Was it because you pursued to sustain the legacy left behind by your parents? Is it because you wanted to be recognized as one of the most successful entrepreneurs? Or is it because you want to give a better life for your family and be the instrument of providing jobs to others?
Regretting the things that you were not able to do may make you feel unforgiving about yourself. What you need to do is that once you have thought about something, think it through if it would make a positive effect on your life. Seek other’s opinion about it and weigh things out. Sometimes fear steps in and we just sit down and think about all the “what if’s”. Get rid of all the doubts and explore.
Happiness is very important because even though you may have all the money in the world, but you do not have anyone to offer your success, then it means nothing. But of course, never fail to give thanks to your Creator who has guided you all these years.
Money is important in our lives. But, we don’t have to make our lives revolve around money. Recognize it as a means in order to live, however, one should also be nourished spiritually.
To improve your life means changing your lifestyle, but it should not be the cause of losing your connection to others. Remain humble and become someone who can be a great example in order to motivate and inspire many.
These are just a few of the many things that you need to avoid if you want to start having an improved life.
