  1. Reflect on Your Day – What could you learn from your day. How can you learn from scenarios that you can do better in next time? Better yet, what did you do good and how can you do better. This will provoke more positive responses.
  2. When You Find Coins On The Ground Say To Yourself You Are a Money Magnet – This is a tip I learned from Secrets of A Millionaire Mind. It seems silly but it can allow you to draw more money into your life because you are appreciating it more.
  3. Do Something Spontaneous Each Day – There is a cool article talking about this and the benefits it will bring you including; keeping your mind sharp, less stress because you will now be adapting to the unknown and add variety to your day. In order to integrate more spontanaeity into your life, you should do so after you have had a successful day, be naughty when you do it, actually schedule it since it isn’t part of your daily life yet and look for ideas online of how people live more spontaneous.
  4. Ask For Help More Often – Nobody can do it alone. Even “self made” people are not really self made at all. They have had massive amounts of help on the way. Also the smartest people know that it takes hiring smarter people than them is the best and fastest way to success!

This can even be in the form of reading the same author over and over or watching podcasts of an expert in your field.
  10. Allow A Negative Feeling To Be There Instead of Resisting It – What you resists persists, so if you have been trying to escape a negative feeling or emotion, stop. The only way through it is straight through it. If you are having trouble letting go of unwanted emotions. I wrote an article on how to do so here.
  11. Join A Workout Group – Often times we refrain from working out alone because we are intimidated or don’t want to look dumb in front of people when we mess up. Well first of all people that go to the gym are some of the most secure people in the world because they are creating higher self confidence, so they won’t judge you if you mess up. But you can also workout around others who are in the same situation as you by joining a gym that offers group classes. It can allow you to get a host of different types of workouts and styles and help you on your journey to one day working out on your own.

  17. Stop Hitting The Snooze Button – This is going to take effort, but the best way to stop hitting the snooze button is to have something so exciting waiting for you that it pulls you out of bed.
