5 Tips for Achieving and Living Your Best Life


If you wish to live your best life possible Ė and who wouldnít? There are several simple steps you can take to make it materialize.

Tip #1: Put Yourself First

Putting yourself first may sound selfish on the surface. In reality, it is not selfish at all. Putting yourself first does not mean you do not care about others. In addition, it does not mean that you hurt others in order to achieve your goals. Rather, it means that you do not allow others to selfishly interfere with your goals and with your priorities. If you hope to live your best life, you need to make your dreams and goals a priority. The more you allow yourself to be separated from that goal and the path toward the goal, the less likely you will be to achieve it.

Tip #2: Donít Give Up

Along the path toward achieving the life you have always wanted, you will inevitably run into some roadblocks. This doesnít mean you turn around and go back home. Rather, look for a way to work around that roadblock or to use it to your advantage. Never focus on the obstacles in your way Ė allowing all of your attention to be drawn to a problem is really just your self-critical voice speaking to you out of fear. Continue focusing on your desired outcomes and working toward your goals.

Tip #3: Learn From Others

Everyone around you provides you with a learning experience. Watch them and learn from them. By being observant and open, you can learn what to do and what to avoid in order to achieve your desired outcomes.

Tip #4: Work from Your Strengths

No one can do everything. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Donít waste your time and energy beating yourself down, worrying about the things you donít do well. Instead, recognize your strengths, take full advantage of them, and ask others who have counterbalanced strengths to do the things that you donít do well.

Tip #5: Follow Your Passion and be Happy Now.

Perhaps the most important thing you can do in this life is to follow your passion. But donít make your happiness conditional on achieving your goals. Be happy now, no matter what the outcome. With this attitude, you will not lose motivation for your goals, but instead, will gain increased clarity, energy and desire to achieve them.
