Hold Yourself Accountable (Be Hard On Yourself)
This may not be the easiest method on this list; however, it is one of the most important. It helps if you start to see yourself as a parent and a child. And it helps if you do this simultaneously. What do I Mean? It would be best if you were to treat yourself like a loving parent. Just as you would not want your kid to be unsuccessful in life, you should want the same thing for yourself. By being hard on yourself, you will live a much more comfortable and simpler life.
Reward Yourself (Do This When You Have Reached A Milestone)
When you have accomplished a particular goal, reward yourself. You deserve it. Achieving goals is a great thing, and by rewarding yourself, you place your mind and consciousness in an area where you will want to keep on accomplishing new goals.
Set Alarms (Be More Aware Of Time)
Time is all we have. Learning to manage your time more effectively will give you so much more time to do other things. What successful people do is use their time as productively and effectively as possible. When you learn to have better control of your time, you will start to see significant changes in your life. By waking up earlier, coming to work earlier, or starting your projects earlier, you will begin to see monumental changes in your life.
Invest In a Planner
This complements our previous method. By having a planner, you will better manage your life so that you can be more successful.
Having a planner helps you better control the day that you have ahead of you. Most people allow the day to control them. Whatever life throws their way, they just accept. But by planning what YOU want to do, you control the day.
Decluttering your life means removing things in your life that are taking up too much of your time. And this method may hurt many of you, but if you want to get your life back on track, you will need to do these things.
- Old clothes you aren’t using (No need to horde)
- Old Friendships that have waned
- Old relationships (love interest) that have gotten toxic
- Family members who only want to stay stagnant
This part will probably be the most difficult, but it is one of the most transformative methods that you will have to undergo in order to live the life that you want.
Create Weekly and Monthly Goals
Create weekly goals that you accomplish will do wonders for your self-esteem. The feeling of accomplishing something is fantastic. By sticking to weekly goals, you will better be strengthening your will so that you can later achieve your monthly goals. The more you accomplish goals, the easier it will be to start changing your life for the better.
Learn and Practice Saying “NO”
