2019 is finally here and we would like to share some habits we think would help you to triumphantly get through this year. It is time to get to be where you always dreamed you could be but have maybe strayed from the path. In times of great difficulty, you don’t rise to the occasion, you fall to the level of your training. The more training you have the more opportunity you will achieve. Luck is a series of two things coming into fruition at one time, opportunity and preparation. These habits will prepare you for the opportunities that will appear in this New Year.
Say yes more often than saying no. Saying yes to something you previously would have been uninclined to do will move you out of your comfort zone and into new territory. In this landscape, we learn so much more about ourselves and how our insecurities hold us back from the life we were destined to live. The more frequently we can be out of our element the more we will grow. Say yes to asking out your crush, taking on more than your share at work, getting up earlier to go to the gym. We are all so much more capable than we think.
Make your bed in the morning. By performing this simple task you start the day off by having a win. You performed a task that you did not think to be important or having much merit, but in contrast, you have actually trained yourself to go the extra mile. This behavior also gives you ownership over the situation you have created and take pride in rectifying them. The U.S military makes their boot camp soldiers make their bed every morning and is where this philosophy has been developed from.
Take ownership of your problems in life. When you own the problem you also own the win you get from the solution. Playing the victim of your life will not develop any form of success, only hardship, and sorrow. Take some time out of your day whether that be in the shower or in the car on the way to work and state, out loud, 5 things you are thankful for. We all get caught up in the problems that affect us each day and somehow forget the things we have that are positive in our life. Hate your boss? Be happy for your home, your family, or any other sort of benefit you have. No matter what circumstance you find yourself in, just remember how good you actually have it.
A powerful perspective and growth fueled mindset will propel you farther into a more well-developed character than carrying on in the mundane trenches of fear.
