7 Uncommon Tips for Success

No comments

1. Do what you hate…sometimes. Often the thing we dread doing most brings us the most benefit. Staring down the things we fear doing is challenging but ultimately leaves us better prepared for success.

2. Scare yourself. Comfort zones are nice but many of the greatest things in life lie just outside of that zone. Regularly challenge yourself to leave your comfort zone and you’ll notice what you once saw as difficult or impossible no longer is.

3. Find motivation. Spending too much time in our own heads detracts from all the great stuff around us. If you take the time to notice, there will be motivation everywhere that you can use to fuel yourself. I regularly see stories online, read books and meet people that motivate me in every aspect of my life.

4. Stay committed. As I mentioned above, motivation is a wonderful thing. However, once motivation runs out only commitment remains. Commitment requires a vision of where you want to go, why and what you’re willing to sacrifice to get there.

5. Push further. I am a big proponent of trying to push your boundaries so far that it changes what you view as normal. It often only takes one more bit of effort to turn the corner into a whole new level of success.

6. Forget the past. Our past has a tendency to either create complacency or sadness. That is why it’s crucial to focus on the present and future if we want to succeed.

7. Suit up and show up. In life, sometimes the toughest part is just showing up and moving forward after things have gotten difficult. There are athletes, businesses and people from every walk of life that win by attrition, refusing to quit when everyone else does.

Use these tips to improve your health within 1 month

1. Choose an unhealthy food or drink you regularly consume and cut it down to at least 50% within 30 days. This will create physical results and discipline.

2. Learn to cook and prepare at least 2 healthy meals. Simple recipes are perfect and an easy way to begin eating better.

3. Don’t skip breakfast. If you start the day with breakfast you’ll have greater energy and be less prone to overeating at night.

4. Increase your water intake. Whatever you’re ingesting now, shoot for at least 1/3 more.

5. Take a good multivitamin. The best multivitamins are food-based (come from food), the worst kinds are synthetic and will be sold in drug stores for the same price you pay for coffee.

6. If you’re currently exercising, increase your intensity. Upping the intensity prevents stagnation and leads to faster results.

7. If you’re not working out, start performing exercise a minimum of 3 times a week for at least 20 minutes per session. If you don’t move it, you’ll lose it.

8. Complain less. Whining, complaining and fighting on Facebook are all examples of directing your energy toward negativity instead of results.

9. Listen more. Most people are great at talking, learn to listen more and you’ll be shocked at what you can achieve as a result.

10. Schedule an appointment to improve your health within 30 days. For example, visit a chiropractor or personal trainer.
