 You don’t have to settle for things that suck in your lifetime.


Stop telling yourself the job you hate is just how it is, or other people are in debt so it’s okay that i can be, or I don’t know what I want in life so I’ll just keep settling for what I am doing. You do not have to settle for less than you deserve. Stop brainwashing yourself and allowing others to influence you to keep living an average life. Be which team you want to be and do what you were meant to do, success and happiness follows. You need to change your perspective or improve your situation. For instance in the event you don’t like your job and also you often complain about it to friends, family or whomever will listen; you've two options. The first it to sit down making a list of everything you don’t like, (easy enough), and the things you really like. Don’t say there isn’t much you don’t like, begin with, you get paid frequently, maybe you have benefits, you want your boss or coworkers, you learn innovative skills, I practically wrote that for you personally. Make a complete list of “likes” and “don’t likes” and if you can find aspects of your job you want try to do really that in your job. You can volunteer to do really what you like, take a seat on committees, swap tasks using a coworker; there are ways to do that. If you still hate your task its time for option number 2. Are you ready?… Quit! Shocking I know, but you can find another job doing more of what you like or employed by a company more aligned together with your values. Lots of information mill looking; waiting for you. You need to simply make a plan and begin your journey.


 You are more than adequate, you have greatness in the human body.

Yup, you may not wish to hear it, but you are awesome, talented, and you've got gifts to offer your family and the world. The mirror will probably be your best friend or your worst enemy the treatment depends on what you see and say once you look into it. Try positive affirmations in the morning and each day. Say things like, “I am great…”, Or “no it's possible to do my job generate an income can, I am talented, knowledgeable, and talented.” how about, “I am an excellent parent or partner, I'm loving, supportive, empathetic, and caring.” Stuck in debt, tell yourself, ” I am completely debt free because I have the power and tools to complete so” when you change the way you speak to yourself, you change your point of view and you will move towards living your better life.

 Set goals, write them down, and do something positive about them everyday!

Obvious I am aware, but most people don’t set goals, they make wishes and we are all aware there aren’t that many genies on earth to grant them. Stop being lazy to make the commitment to living your very best life. Now I know a number of you may believe in the law of attraction, ask, believe and also you shall receive; in my opinion there is some truth to that particular, however, you need to add another layer, commitment. Take time to formulate S.M.A.R.T(S) Goals, write them down, visualize them, and work on them daily. You will be amazed at what opens up for you, your goals will come to life.

 Exercise, exercise, exercise.

Didn’t I already say stop being lazy. Well I'm saying it again. Look, I understand it is difficult to find time for you to exercise, but it is important keep your health. You need to exercise, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Physically speaking, everybody knows the benefits of exercise, it promotes better health, gives you more energy, reduces the possibility of health risks. Exercising likewise helps to promote a positive self-image, the higher you physically feel about yourself the more you are mentally energized and the more swag you've. It will also translate to other parts of your life. Let’s talk mental workouts. You have to take some time for yourself each day to recharge your batteries and produce a deeper understanding of whom you are. What I mean is you'll want to take some time each day to sit down quietly, or meditate, or relax for connecting with yourself, to break without any the stresses and pressures at work, family, and financial responsibilities. This gives you more clarity on where you are now and where you need to go in life. Lastly, spiritual exercises. I'm not really necessarily speaking about religion, it’s much more about connecting with something greater than yourself. This why not a little deep, but it’s linked to taking time out, it’s about being aware of what the universe or more spiritual being is telling you. We often ignore little messages which come our way, we right them off as unimportant, however, sometimes they can be messages for us to behave upon something, you have to listen. Set time each week to exercise physically, mentally, and spiritually.

 Stop spending time with “losers”

Oops, did I say that? (Steve Urkle voice. Google it if you don’t know), I certainly did! There are different types of losers, the sort of people who try to achieve their goals and fall short. I'm not talking about those type of losers. I am talking about people who try to hold to carry you down, they are unsupportive.

My grandmother use to “Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are” that has always bound to me. You are whom you associate with, if you accompany negative people who are stuck within their lives and have no motivation to improve their situation, you will end up the same. They will hold you when you try to move forward whilst you stuck. Should you associate with positive, motivated, inspiring people, you'll be the same and you will begin to move towards living living you want.

In order to live your better life you have to be honest with yourself, treat yourself well, feel that you deserve more, and take action. Surround yourself with positive, supportive people, and also the possibilities will open for you. It’s time to replace those negative opinions with positive mantras, you have the keys now drive.
