10 Tips To Make This Year Better! Being great isn’t about achieving your goals, it’s about becoming the kind of individual who knows how!

1, Adopt ONE new habit this year.

What one new habit would you like to have built-in to your personality? Acknowledge what new behavior will serve you best. In what area of your life would you like to improve most; relationships, financial, social, physical, spiritual? Take your time and discover what is absolutely essential in developing this new habit; knowledge, beliefs, skills and the physiology. Then, begin each day to focus 5 minutes to run through this new strategy. Once you can do it without much thought, run the program 3 times a day until it becomes a habit. If you can do this, you’ll now have a behavior that will enhance your overall personality and attitudes.

2. Forgive someone you’ve been holding emotional hostage.

You have a huge decision to produce Forgive or hold on! An essential part of forgiveness and moving forward after you want to forgive is always to love and forgive yourself FIRST! Perhaps you are harder on yourself then you’re with others. You might sometimes feel unlovable or like you’re too much from case to case who hurt you. Realize that you have done the best you may before the ability and begin to simply accept the events that occurred.

If you’re feeling really hurt and upset as to what happened, speaking with another person about it can help you gain some valuable perspective. As opposed to mulling it over by yourself or isolating yourself, speak to someone else that may help you gain some insight and to seem like you’re less alone. You may want to get some good valuable advice which can help you use a better understanding of the problem, and a stronger sense of the direction to move.

3. Drink more water daily.

Because it is 75% of your brain and body, It regulates your body temperature, It keeps your skin looking good, It protects your heart, It helps burn FAT, It prevents constipation, It decreases fatigue, It carries oxygen to cells, It flushes out toxins.
It helps you control calorie intake. Wondering how much you do need?

Your weight (lbs) Divide by 2 = Number of Ozs.
Ex: 130 Lb woman = 65 ozs = 8 glasses a day.

4. Eat more healthy & be mouth conscious.

You’re smart and you know what real food is, so stop eating crap!  You know what real food is: things that grew in the ground, on a tree, came out of the sea, ran on the land, or flew through the air. Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts are all great examples of REAL food.

On top of that, you know what crap food is: food that comes from a drive-thru window, a vending machine, box, bag, or wrapper. If it has an ingredient list longer than A Game of Thrones, it’s probably not good for you. If it started out as real food and then went through fourteen steps to get to the point where you’re about to eat it, it’s probably not good for you.

The key is NOT what you eat, its’ the MOTIVATION to eat what is best for you!

5. Organized a space you’ve know needs it.

Less Stress, Relax More – Less time spent running around means more time. Just, more time to do what I want to do, like …More Freedom – Getting clean and clear professionally and personally means to spend with the kids, family and the things you truly want to live your life enjoying.

Manageable Tasks – Goals are NOT accomplished by doing only one thing. It’s easier to achieve what you want when you break them down into manageable tasks. Time is the number one resource we can use and but never create more of it. DONT WATSE YOUR VALUABLE RESOURCE!

Improved Health – Stress which happens when things get out of control. Studies demonstrate a link between sustained high levels of stress and a variety of health problems. the more organized you are, the more relaxed you are!

Greater productivity – When you know where things are, what your goals are, and take care of the busy work, you’ve got significantly more time and energy for the big goals in life.

6. Be conscious of the words you choose to express yourself.

Be conscious of your words, especially when you’re not in the best mood. You never want to mix bad words with a bad mood. You can always reverse your mood but your words can’t be replaced. Remember that your words are a reflection of your inner world, thus reflect your thoughts, and thoughts become reality. Mind your words, because words mind!

7. Exercise… even if it’s one sit-up a day.

This is something I need to convince you of… Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to disregard. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex or physical ability. The easiest is; WALKING!

8. Educate your mind… a book, a class, an online course.

Lifelong learning can enhance your self-esteem which help your home is a fuller and more well-rounded life. By continuing to learn after your school days are gone, you are able to develop greater understanding and more breadth of knowledge in the fields that appeal to you. It is possible to master old hobbies, renew old passions, hone your abilities, and help the richness you will ever have. By broadening your horizons through lifelong learning, you put in more expertise in methods that bear fruit in every facet of your life, regardless of your actual age.

9. Set 10 (small) goals, Yes, SMALL!

Breaking down your big goals into smaller, easier-to-accomplish ones makes the impossible, now possible. The Chinese philosopher Lau-tzu said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” This may be true—but in order to travel those thousand miles, you have to keep on moving every day. The more consistent your efforts, the sooner you’ll reach your destination.

10. Be GREAT! Committed, Integritable & Positive!

Are you just participating in your life or are you committed?

The chicken and the pig were discussing the topic of commitment through the barnyard fence. The chicken said proudly, “I give eggs every morning, I’m committed.”  Then the pig says, “Giving eggs isn’t commitment, That’s participation.   Giving bacon, now that’s commitment!”

Do what you say, say what you mean! Most people have such a tough time being honest, especially with themselves. Do you wish you could say what you mean? The secret is to say things in a way that they understand what you mean but you get your point across and feel good about it. Yes?

And positive thinking doesn’t mean that you keep your head in the sand and ignore life’s less pleasant situations. Positive thinking just means that you approach unpleasantness or challenges in a more positive and productive way. You think the best is going to happen, not the worst.

Positive thinking begins with self-talk. Self-talk is the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head. These automatic thoughts can be positive or negative. Some of your self-talk comes from logic and reason. Other self-talk may arise from misconceptions that you create because of lack of information.

If the thoughts that run through your head are mostly negative, your outlook on life is more likely pessimistic. If your thoughts are mostly positive, you’re likely an optimist — someone who practices positive thinking. Again the secret is to be more mindful of your inner dialogue. Once you become aware of the thoughts and feelings associated with the way you process your reality, you will begin to change it if your WHY you desire to make the change is stronger than your desire to not want to take action. Just notice your results!
