Ready to change your life?
In this article you will learn 16 simple things you can do to move your life in a positive direction.
Step 1 – Accept 100% Responsibility For Your Life
The first step in this process is to stop playing the victim role and accept 100% responsibility for your life.
People who live unhappy lives believe that life happens to them. People who live joyful lives know that they are in control and that life happens through them.
Take control of your life and know that you are creating your reality.
Step 2 – Know What You Want
The second thing you need to do if you want to change your life is have a Clear Vision for what you want your life to look like, feel like, and sound like.
You need to have a clear vision of what it is you want to accomplish.
You could call this a goal, but it’s more of a vision of your future self.
Take the time to write down all of the characteristics of what you want your ideal life to look like.
Step 3 – Release Old Baggage
“Out with the old and in with the new.”
Before you can bring in new energy, you must release old baggage.
This usually means old negative beliefs and emotions about yourself and other people.
It is important that you forgive everyone that has had any negative effect on your life.
But most importantly, you must forgive yourself.
Step 4 – Love Yourself
The only way you will truly be able to change your life is when you Love yourself unconditionally.
No one can love you unless you love yourself.
This may sound like a simple task but if your life feels unfulfilled or stuck, then you probably have some unconscious beliefs that do not allow you to truly love yourself.
If you want to “get what you want”, you must first believe you “deserve” it.
Step 5 – Find The Positive In Every Situation
The hardest part in changing your life will be to find the positive in every Situation and welcome the challenges into your life.
You are going to need to work on your old beliefs and definitions about life and every circumstance that presents itself.
Life is completely neutral and meaningless.
You get to assign meaning to any situation that presents itself.
Therefore the only way you can extract a positive experience from something is by choosing to find the positive in it.
This is where your true power comes from.
Because your life is currently filled with “negative things,” you need to be able to turn those lemons into lemonade and extract a positive meaning no matter how bad it may look.
Step 6 – Stop Complaining
In continuing with the idea of finding positive in every situation, you must never complain about the circumstances in your life.
Complaining is the fastest way to hand your power over and lower your energy.
People who complain are playing the victim role.
Step 7 – Be Grateful
Before you can truly change your life, you must be grateful for what you do have.
All too often people who are unhappy with their life focus on what they don’t have.
You need to focus on what you do have and be grateful for it.
Remember, no matter how bad your situation is, there is always someone out there who has it worse.
What you choose to focus on expands.
By remaining in the state of gratitude, you make it easier for good things to come your way.
But you must do this with no expectations. It must come from an authentic place.
Step 8 – Get Organized & Simplify Your Life
A cluttered house is a cluttered mind.
You need to create the space for new energy to come into your life.
Therefore, you need to clean up and get organized.
If you are messy in any way, you need to get rid of all the junk you don’t need and simplify your life.
Step 9 – Find Your Life Purpose
Without having meaning in your life, you will wander around aimlessly not sure what the point of living is.
You need to take the time to figure out what your life means to you.
> What do you want to accomplish?
> What excites you?
> What are you passionate about?
Once you find your purpose, you will get energized and this will motivate you to make more change in your life.
Step 10 – Eat Healthy
You are what you eat.
Junk foods bring your energy down and then will attract low vibration circumstances.
Clean high vibration foods will attract positive circumstances.
It also allows you to think clearly and respond to life challenges in a much more loving way.
Your body is a vessel for your life experience. Therefore if it is toxic, you will attract toxic circumstances.
Clean out your body and only input good foods.
Step 11 – Surround Yourself With Positive People
For the time being, you need to remove all toxic people from your life.
You are not strong enough (yet) to hang around with them.
You need to surround yourself with people who are creating the type of life you say you want to create for yourself so it will “rub off on you.”
By surrounding yourself with these people, it will make it easier for you to change your life.
And once your new life has taken form and has become your “normal” routine, then you can (on occasion) hang out with people who are having issues because now you can help them change their life (if they want it.)
Step 12 – Consume Positive Information Only
Information is food too.
Stop watching the news and junk TV or internet media.
You need to ONLY be putting in healthy, positive, and uplifting information.
Surround yourself with good books and subscribe to social feeds that are only uplifting.
Stay away from any information that is considered negative (especially if it is gossip.)
Remember, this is just for now.
Once you find your center and become strong enough, then you can re-engage the negative information to help transform it into positive.
But for now, you are not strong enough.
Step 13 – Find A Job You Love
You spend half your life at work.
You need to find something you can do that uplifts your spirit and brings you joy.
Sometimes it may not be what you are doing but how you are doing it.
It does not have to be some big life changing project (although it can be.)
It can be something as simple as being a cashier so long as you do it in a positive and uplifting way that brings joy to you and the people around you.
Step 14 – Take Massive Action Every Day
Don’t just expect things to change because you did a few things here or there.
Until you build up a new momentum, you need to take massive action each and every day.
Become obsessed and relentless with taking action if you want to change your life.
Step 15 – Find A Mentor
Mentors and coaches (some of them) are great people who have walked down the path you are on and understand the twists and turns of this process.
Because the journey you are on is not easy, it’s important that you find someone who can help guide you along the way.
Don’t be stubborn or talk yourself out of asking for help.
We all need it.
Step 16 – Be Patient
Because you will still be manifesting your “old self” (because in a sense, it is still being generated from your old beliefs and definitions,) this means that for some time you are going to have to know that even though you are making changes in your life, the “old life” is still showing up.
Be patient, it does take some time before your new life can start to “show up” from the changes you are making on a more consistent basis.
