Is it possible to change your life forever ? Really change your habits through massive disruption on the way you act daily. I think that anything is possible. Very often, a trigger is the root cause of a change and a frustration or a huge aspiration to a better life. The first and most important thing that any human being needs is recognition, not money.
6 steps to radically change your life forever
If you, like many people, question yourself, then you might feel a need to change your life, or simply evolve for the best. These few and simple steps will help you plan and see what you could become if you decide to. Typically, a life-changing event happens, and people become more than motivated for change.
1. First thing to understand: TOMORROW STARTS TODAY
Do not forget, tomorrow starts today.
This sentence is somehow strange and though to understand. You need to change today, really, not tomorrow, because it you always wait for tomorrow, you will never achieve anything important in your life.
To illustrate this, this is a life quote about how some people are way more effective than others : Some people do in one week what others do in one year. Sometime simply because they decided to be effective.
2. Plan your future to drastically change your life forever
First step is to plan, take a moment with a simple notebook and a pen, nothing more, no laptops, no mobile. Before that take a walk in the morning, early, if possible, to have your head clear. And just think. Then write down all your most ambitious dreams you want to accomplish and the important things for you in your life.
It can be anything that matters to you.
- Become a better person
- Build a new business
- Quit smoking
- Lose weight
- Make your family proud
- Get a job
- Get a degree
- Take online trainings and course
- Returning to sport
- Improve your health
- Stop drinking alcohol
- Get out of debt
- Invest in real estate
- Set up and manage a charity
Be bold and ambitious, do not hesitate.
Then right down what you will achieve in:
- 3 months
- 6 months
- 1 year
- 5 years
3. Change your day-to-day habits step by step
I give you an example, if your goal is to lose weight, you literally can through all the sugar right away in the bean, sodas, sweets snacks, etc.
Small habits lead to big changes
And from now on, change your grocery list and stick to it. Only fruits instead of snacks and only water as sodas. No more ice creams. Buy chocolate with low added sugar, it tastes better actually!
As simple as that.
One way to achieve this, is also to get high quality food so snaking and low-quality snacks doesn’t look tasty to you anymore.
A great quote from Richard Branson about small things that matters: If you do not have time for the small things, you will not have time for the big things.
These tiny habits allow you to lose weight and to save money on the long run.
Change your life forever and do not go back to the bad habits. If your goal is to get healthier and to get more sleep. Check out what is taking so much time om your typical day. If you spend too much time on TV, then cancel your Netflix subscription and put the TV in the basement.
This way you will change your day-to-day life with tiny habits, once at the time, and you will feel better.
4. Start reading books on the topic to get inspiration
You’ll get inspiration and a practical advice and a proven way to do whatever is your project. Though it doesn’t mean the path is easy!
In almost any fields, what you are trying to accomplish as already be done by someone else. You can buy years of experiences simply by reading their feedback.
Buying used books is a very cheap and effective way to learn new things.
For example, there are excellent books on how to build a business, a small local business, or an e-commerce website for example.
The 4-hour work week is available on Amazon in various formats : this bold, best seller book is really a life changer. It’s about lifestyle, time management and business. You will never see your time and your work the same after reading this book, I highly recommend it, and it’s :
The Lean Startup : How Today’s Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses : One of the best books on how to build a business from scratch and how to measure progress with real numbers, with a method. I can only recommend this book. It shows examples of startup creation and ways to innovate that you can never imagine.
5. Share your goals with friends and family on how you change your life
When you share your goals and ambitions, you become accountable because you do not want to disappoint them. Simply because you announced it. And it will be a huge motivation for you. Maybe someone around you will start the same journey with you.
It is always better to struggle with a friend that alone. It can also be a team effort in training for example with a running partner.
6. Track your progress once a week on Monday
It’s an important routine to take a moment, for example Monday morning, alone, for example with a good cup of coffee or tea and write down what worked last week and what didn’t work.
It all about reaching your full potential today, and this week ? If you feel you can make more on a weekly basis, it means you can do more.
And the detailed reasons of why it worked.
Also, the actual time you spent on the goals last week will show the dedication.
And write down the current week goals.
To conclude, through these 6 simple steps, if you decide so, you can drastically change your life, forever.
