If you realise you want to make the most out of your life – it’s about time! Your life is whatever you make it, and the possibilities are endless. The first thing you need to do is figure out what you want to accomplish. What are your hopes and desires? Remember that there is no right or wrong answer, and if you don’t know – that’s fine too. It just means your journey will be even more exciting because you have no idea where you may end up!
Whatever it is you end up doing, here are all the tips you need to remember, to help you get exactly what you want out of life.
No one is any better than you.
That person you see as being inferior to you? They’re not; they’re just another simple human being surviving in this world. Their brain isn’t any different to yours, nor their heart, or their blood. They have not been blessed with a set of skills that you’re incapable of developing, nor do they deserve anything more than you do.
Remember this; you can’t lose until you quit… So just don’t quit.
Creativity wins every time.
Albert Einstein said it first – “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” and indeed it is. The most magnificent minds weren’t full of facts, but creativity instead. Anyone can be factful nowadays (thanks, Google), so don’t waste your time on the little things when you could be building up your creativity. That on the other hand, is something that not everybody has, so if you have it – be ready to rise above and use it to your advantage.
The rules are meant to be broken.
Let’s put it this way, if you stick by all of the rules that are set, you’ll end up missing out on a whole bunch of fun. Sure, rules have been put in place for a reason, but why should you follow them without questioning their validity first? Don’t ever be put down or put off for questioning things. It shows strength and curiosity, and that’s what everyone needs within their lives. How else are you going to learn?
Don’t be scared to ask for help.
Whether you’re battling an inner demon, or can’t manage your thoughts and feelings – ask for help. People get it into their heads that doing so is a sign of weakness – but it isn’t at all. There are plenty of ways you can get the help you need, click here for more information. The most important thing to remember is that you’re human, and if you’re struggling, just ask.
Slow down and enjoy.
Why is everyone always in a hurry? Before you know it, you’ll be ninety years old and wishing that you looked at the trees properly, counting every leaf it owned.
Speeding down the road in your car to knock two minutes off your journey time really won’t make any difference. Neither will pushing in line at the grocery store. – Take time out to see all the beautiful things in this world! Who knows how long they’ll last for, so take a chill pill.
Go all out and never regret a thing. Talk to that person you can’t take your eyes off at work. Quit the job you hate and try something new. Decide to be an artist for a year. Travel around the world alone. Get up on stage and sing Whitney Houston like you know you can. – Whatever it may be, go out and enjoy. Who cares if you fail miserably – it was fun while it lasted. Now onto the next.
Upset about something? Do something about it.
If something is eating you up inside, do something to make a difference. It’s no good whining about it on social media – you need to get out and take a stand. Join a movement that you’re passionate about, or create a website, or a vlog about the issue and what you’re trying to do. If you’re not willing to make the effort, stop complaining.
Be grateful for what you already have.
It’s very easy sometimes to forget how lucky you actually are. The biggest thing being – you’re breathing. Sure, we all look around us and compare our lives to one another, but what advantage actually comes out of that? Be grateful for what you have, and cherish it, because you don’t know how long you’ll have it for. If you’re thankful for your family, or the relationships you have within your life, it doesn’t hurt to be vocal and tell them. It will surely come to them as a surprise to hear, and it will mean an awful lot.
Stay true to yourself.
One of the most important things, and also one of the hardest, is to stay true to yourself. This means owning who you are, and not being ashamed, embarrassed or scared to reveal your true self. You’re amazing, and people are lucky if they get to know you even a little, so never feel as though you can’t be yourself. Some people are rude and arrogant, and they aren’t trying to hide themselves away from the world, so why should you?
Less thinking, more doing.
Who cares what people are going to think of you. The ‘what if’ words are the most harmful thing you can say to yourself, because it has the potential to hold you back from the things you want to do in your life. What. If. You took too long stressing about it, and now the opportunity that was once right in front of you, is gone forever? You’ll be so disappointed that you didn’t just take the leap. You don’t want to spend your life being stuck in a state of limbo. So when making a decision, get the essential information you need, and then just go for it. Swap out what if to why not. That’s a damn lot more exciting.
