Tips to Live Your Best Life
Understand Your Why.
When you know why you’re doing something, the motivation to continue doing it continues to build. When you feel lost, that why will help guide you back to that point where clarity of purpose exists.
Connect with People.
In today’s world, we’re more isolated. Many of us have lost that connection with folks. We have to find ways to reconnect because we’re a tribal species at heart. And, to move this point even further forward, connect with people who lift and encourage you. Seek people who are on the path or the direction that you want to go and learn from them.
Learn at every opportunity.
Look at the world as a classroom willing to teach you everything you want to know as long as you open your eyes to it.
Be Open and Flexible to Change to live your best life.
2020 has thrown so many curveballs. We’ve had to adapt and change to them. And this openness to bend with the curves will help keep us supple and able to deal with blows. We’ve all experienced massive changes this past year, and those who are coping well are the ones looking for the bright light behind the clouds. Every curve offers a lesson to get us to higher ground. But you’ve got to seek it.
Embrace the lessons in the highs and lows.
Life is full of highs and lows. There are lessons to be learned in both. When dealing with a low, it may feel like it’s never going to end. But realize this, everything is temporary in life. If you can get to a place where you can embrace the lessons that the highs and lows offer, you’ll find your way to middle ground, eventually. And once there, you’ll be able to glance around and realize how much you appreciate it. But without the highs and lows, you’d never fully appreciate the beauty in those rest stops along the way. If you stand on a hill for your whole life, you’re never going to appreciate the beauty that the valleys offer. The real power is, regardless where you find yourself, you need to seek the beauty of the lessons. It seldom comes to you unless you seek it.
