1. Let Go Of Your Past

The past is dry cement. We cannot change it, however the choices we make today can change our future. So, next time your thoughts drift back, and you start to self-judge. Be like Elsa from the movie Frozen and start singing “Let it Go!”.

2. Do Something 

“An inch of action will always get you further than miles of your best intentions”. Click to Tweet

You do not have to do a marathon immediately, just put your shoes on and go for a walk. If you want more financial security, start saving a little. If you want better relationships and business, you can start by making one phone call a day to someone important. Find something that sparks your passion and take your first step. Remember motion begets motion.

3. Get Out Of Your Head And Go For A Walk

Sitting all day at your desk is not only unhealthy, it arches our back, slopes our shoulders, and shortens our breath. If you want to feel better, think more clearly, problem solve better and be more creative, then go for a walk with your head up and your shoulders back.

4. Write It Down 

“If it’s in your head, it’s dead’. Fact, ninety two percent of people do not achieve their goals. The eight percent who do achieve their goals, all have their goals written down and their goals are specific, motivational, aspirational, realistic and time bound AKA SMART goals.

5. Decide

Do it. Drop it. Delay it or Delegate it. Click to Tweet

Deciding to do something or not, helps us prioritise and act. It also gives your brain more capacity to process your “Do it now” tasks that we have chosen to focus on. Deciding increases your chance of success along with less distracting thoughts.

6. Be Accountable To Someone 

Ever hit the snooze button on your alarm clock after telling yourself you were going to go for that run? Now imagine if you had a friend who had also gotten up super early to exercise with you. Would you have more motivation to get out of bed or hit that snooze button? Accountability works, so draw on its power, to create your ideal life.

7. Declutter Everything 

If it does not serve you or spark your inner joy, it is holding you back. Click to Tweet

This includes relationships, your career, your lifestyle, finances and whatever else that may be hurting you or hindering you from being your true self and supporting you to live your ideal life.

Not sure how to start to declutter your mind but keen to learn some strategies to help you?

8. Live By Your Own Expectations 

Not the Jones’s, not your parents, your bosses, your friends, or even your partner. Lose the temptation to compare yourself to others. Be true to yourself and discover your own joy. Authenticity attracts as much as it liberates you at the same time.

9. Make It Your Thing 

“Choose an occupation you love, and you’ll never have to work a day in your life”. Click to Tweet

Chances are if you can make your passion financially viable you will be more successful, be given more opportunities, and inspire a greater number of people who have a similar passion. Once you achieve this you can start to shift your life into a state of flow.

10. Live With Gratitude 

Although difficult, you need to have gratitude for others and for your own hurt and pains. It is from this pain that you have grown to become who you are today. If you can start to notice the good things, appreciate them and express your gratitude more frequently then you will start to find joy from more things in your life, and experience greater peace.
