We all want to live a lavish lifestyle am I right ? or at least a lifestyle where we ourselves can feel content in our own devices but how bad do we really want it, how far are we really willing to go in order to achieve the riches that we so desire or rather not riches or wealth but that life of finally being free of worries and woes, doubt and fear, burden and ordeal ?
Well that is the winning question, isn’t it? we all want freedom, wealth and contentment but are we really willing to do what it takes to get all that?
Working on oneself
Now I know this will seem like a no-brainer but I can’t get across how important it is for you to look after yourself if you truly want to be happy and to live successfully whether it be through financial success, success of one’s inner self or just to simply stave away all of those bad thoughts that linger through our minds here and there, well I know all too well about how those thoughts can take over and eat at your soul, yes i know all to well how it feels to be left out, to feel alone in a world full of people, to have a loss of identity, to feel let down and ashamed or abandoned but here I am doing my best to get by and live life to the fullest or at least make the best of what’s been given to me. I want to share with you what I think it takes to really live a life of peace? Don’t you want that ? to finally be free of the worries of the world? if so then I implore you to continue reading and practice what I am about to tell you so you to can be at peace with yourself.
Improving in all aspects
By all aspects I mean working on your body (Physically), improving your mindset (Mentally) & finding peace within your soul (spiritually).
MENTAL SELF IMPROVEMENT
1. Complete a challenging puzzle or solve a challenging problem early in the day.
Apart from recent findings linking it to staving off aging-related dementia, doing a mental puzzle early in the day benefits the mind like exercise benefits the body; it’s a strengthening workout, which, in the case of a mental puzzle completed early in the day, keeps the mind sharp and warms it up to prepare it to face the cognitive rigors everyone deals with daily.
2. Get moving on something you’ve always wanted to learn.
Whether it be knitting, baking, or computer programming, there’s always something you’ve always wanted to learn but have never found the time for because of your daily preoccupations. Well, you don’t need to wait for your next vacation just to get started on learning a new skill. Instead, you can learn it a little each day by slowly reading a book on it or enrolling in an online course that allows you to work at your own pace.
What’s important is that you’re progressing a little each time towards a new skill that you’ve always wanted to acquire. Before you know it, you’ve learned something you’ve always wanted to, and it’s time to move on to the next learning goal for your continued self-improvement.
PHYSICAL SELF IMPROVEMENT
Resistance exercise is any physical activity that involves a significant amount of exertion by your muscles. While cardiovascular exercises like walking are certainly beneficial to the health, resistance exercises, even simple ones such as climbing up the stairs or doing push-ups against a wall, have the added benefit of firming up your muscles and boosting your metabolism throughout the rest of the day — certainly benefiting your health and even your appearance.
Replace unhealthy foods with healthy favorites.
Sometimes, leaving out unhealthy foods from your diet seems painful because the healthy alternatives just don’t seem to compare in flavor. But surely, you have your own favorite fruits and vegetables, so why not make an effort to use them to replace the unhealthy foods in your diet?
EMOTIONAL SELF IMPROVEMENT
Let someone know that they’re doing good.
There’s hardly anything that compares with sharing positivity and reaping your own rewards from doing so. This is what letting someone know about the good that they’re doing does for others and perhaps, more importantly, for you.
And it doesn’t have to be big accomplishments. In fact, appreciating little things like a good meal prepared or a desk neatly arranged goes a long way in making someone feel good and making you realize how easy it is for you to contribute something positive to the world.
Smile when negative feelings are trying to take its control over you.
Of course, negative thoughts will try to creep into your mind daily — they’re normal. However, they don’t have to consume you and take over your mood for the whole day.
Often, the simple act of smiling, even forcing yourself to smile, brings those positives thoughts back to you, even forcing a smile can lead to positive thinking.
SPIRITUAL SELF IMPROVEMENT
Start your day by thinking about one good thing you can do for the day.
Most often people forget what it means to do something good for another either because they get too caught up in their own bearing’s or because they are to busy and get sidetracked. When you wake up to think about one good thing you can do today that you didn’t do the previous day.
Usually, it’s just a matter of deciding to do good, and that’s what developing the habit of identifying a good deed to do each day fosters.
End your day by writing down one thing you were thankful for.
The line “It’s not about having what you want, but wanting what you have” says it all. Most often the feeling of unsatisfactory with one’s life is brought about by not being able to recognize how valuable the small things are in our lives.
If you were to make a habit of writing down a positive thing that transpired throughout the day when you start to feel upset or unhappy, disappointed then you will start developing a knack of turning that negativity into something of a more positive and lively energy, thus making your road to success that much easier.
In his talk from TEDGlobal 2013, Br. David addresses how grateful living can change the world in which we live, and shares a simple formula for a personal grateful living practice: stop, look and go.
In this TED Talk, Steindl-Rast reveals the true meaning of gratefulness an even shares a few tips on how to live a grateful life. He says it all starts with the realization of true value. Realizing that every moment of life offers not only the chance to appreciate the things we have but also the opportunity to enjoy them. Steindl-Rast says the actual gift is only a small part of the experience. A gift that no one has the opportunity to enjoy doesn’t encourage gratefulness.
“It”s a very simple method,” he says. “It”s so simple that it”s actually what we were told as children when we learned to cross the street. Stop. Look. Go. That”s all.”
“If you”re grateful, you act out of a sense of enough and not of a sense of scarcity, and you are willing to share,” he says. “If you are grateful, you are enjoying the differences between people, and you are respectful to everybody, and that changes this power pyramid under which we live. And it doesn’t”t make for equality, but it makes for equal respect, and that is the important thing.”
