Change – Your key to a better life
The other day while I was reading, I came across a few words. It goes like this: Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results. It instantly struck my mind because it is also meant to say that if you do not make changes to your life, how can you expect your life to be different? How true it is. How do you make changes: Here are the suggestions:
Health: When you do not lead an active lifestyle, you don’t expect your health to change for the better. To be healthy and fit you need to move your body more often. When you always skip breakfast and you enjoy a quick lunch at KFC, you don’t expect your body to be slim. You need to change to healthy eating habits like taking your breakfast and avoiding fast food.
Work: When you work the same way day in and day out, you do not expect yourself to be more effective and efficient. You have to be creative and think of better working methods to improve productivity.
Money: If overspending is your habit, do not expect your debt to be reduced. It can only pile up. Change your spending habit to live within your means to reduce your debt.
Goals: When you don’t set goals in life you don’t expect to go where you are going when you don’t know where you are going. Goals give you focus and direction and take you to your predetermined destination.
Positive emotions: Can you be happy if you are thinking only of miserable thoughts? Your thoughts dictate your emotions. If you want to be happy, think of happy thoughts instead. If you don’t change your negative feelings, you cannot be cheerful and smiling.
Mental attitude: If you think you can’t, mostly likely you won’t make it. Change your mindset, you will change your outlook in life. When you think confidently, problems do not deter you from getting successful. When you change your mental attitude, you change from impossibility to possibility
Relationships: What is your perception of people? You don’t often trust people and you do not have confidence in them? Your negative thoughts of other people manifests itself and you are naturally not friendly towards others. When you are not likable, people find it difficult to approach you and the situation gets worse and the more you tell yourself that you are right about people. However, when you change your thinking and your attitude towards others, people welcome you because you are friendly and smiling and you are interested in others.
The most important thing to change your life for the better is to change your thinking. When you change your thoughts, you do things differently and you can expect to get a different and better result.
