4 steps to help you invest in yourself the right way!

This is how you Invest in Yourself in Four Easy Steps

 

Nowadays, we hear ‘invest’ and various other similar terms constantly. So much so, the word is automatically linked to employees and more efficient techniques within manufacturing, and everything business-related. However, there is one place that the term is rarely used – on ourselves. At some point, we all reach a stage where we just need to invest in ourselves, but it can be hard knowing where to start.Today, we have four easy steps that you can complete to invest in yourself for a brighter future.

 

Create a List – To start, you have to sit yourself down with a pen and paper and write down all the goals you want to achieve. Whether they are huge life ambitions or small targets you have in life. For example, you might want to write a book, reach a certain weight, learn how to play an instrument, learn a second language, or anything that requires skills developed over time. Although this might sound crazy at first, we want you to write down 30+ things. Don’t worry you won’t be able to stop once you get going.

 

When writing, keep them in three categories where one you need skills to complete, one you can do immediately, and the last you need a little time to complete. By doing this, you are finding your true desires as long as you remember to take your time and take breaks.

 

Create a Chart – As you can see, this is all about letting your creative juices flow with hopes that your mind will do the same. Here, we want you to be honest about your skills. At first, this will not feel natural, but it will be a good experience to learn what skills we have and what skills we lack. In order to achieve some of the goals on your list, you may need to learn some new skills, and there is nothing wrong with this. Here, try and utilize a chart or table of some sort including what research you need to do for the skills, what courses may help you, etc. At the end of it all, you should be left with columns for research, action, and then progress.

 

Take Action – Hopefully, you will feel motivated at this point, and you will want to get started on your list. As soon as you get that first tick on the table, you will feel great, and the motivation should then keep coming. If you followed our tips in the first step, you should have some goals that can be done straight away so get a couple of these ticked off as soon as possible. Once the ticks keep coming, the list will become less intimidating by the day. If you leave the chart with no ticks whatsoever, it will look daunting, and you will eventually give up.

 

Don’t Forget Long-Term Goals – Whenever you get some spare time, you can then start working towards the goals that will take a little longer. Over time, try to remove procrastination and work on your list if you have nothing better to do. As long as you do this, and remember to keep ticking the short-term goals, you will keep making progress.

 

There we have it, four fantastic steps to achieve 30+ goals and continually invest in yourself for years to come. If your list changes, this is absolutely fine. Also, even just four ticks a year is fine because this means 25 years of successful progression!

7 MORNING TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL DAY

Here are 7 daily morning routines that will set a positive tone to your day.

 

The world’s most successful people are early birds. They set their day for success with these practices:

 

Healthy Sleep – In truth, every day starts the night before, so you need to achieve at least seven hours of sleep. In life, we tend to try and eat healthily, get exercise, and develop all sorts of habits but all of this becomes harder when we don’t achieve enough sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, there are around 70 sleep disorders that affect 40 million Americans. Therefore, you need to spend some time getting to know your body and receiving help if you cannot get a good night’s rest.

Meditation – If you are religious, you can pray and if not just indulge in a short meditation session. Even if it is just 10-15 minutes, this quiet time by yourself should be focusing on gratitude for what you have as well as the desire for what you want to achieve both short- and long-term.

 

Physical Activity –  Even if you can’t make it to the gym in the mornings, go for a short run, walk, or workout in the garden. Once you get the heart pumping, you will improve your mood and get ready for the day ahead. Working out first thing in the morning will help kickstart your metabolism and overall energy levels.

Consume Protein – According to experts, around 30 grams of protein after waking prevents hunger spikes later in the day and keeps you full for longer. Rather than going for the toast or bagels, try and look towards eggs and meats. Even if you don’t eat dairy or meat, you will find your fix from greens, nuts, seeds, and so on.

Cold Shower – In 2007, a study revealed that cold water is better in the shower because it promotes physical and mental wellbeing. Why? According to the research, the cold water activates neuro-chemicals that improve your mood which sets you up for the day.

 

Get Inspired – Rather than scrolling through social media, find something that inspires you and does it in the early morning. For example, you might prefer an audiobook, a book, music, or whatever it may be. To save time, you could do this while exercising.

 

Review Your Vision – By now, your goals should be written down on paper, and you should read them every morning. If you read these goals and your plan in the morning, you will be less inclined to procrastinate through the day.

Here’s how to Pull Through in Tough Situations

We all need a reminder on what to do when tough situations arise..

 

In life, there is going to be tough times. Whether you are currently going through something right now or are trying to prepare if something was to happen, shit will happen. However, there is something we can control – how we react. Ultimately, the key is often not to let the tough times get the better of you. Of course, the key question is – how do we do that?

tough-times iwontlose

Accept that people make mistakes – When you think of tricky times you have been through before, it is likely to bring back anxiety and sadness. With this in mind, it means that you’re still attached and affected by some ideal. At first, it can be hard to notice this, but you have to if you want to move forward. If a family member hurt you, this still hurts because they aren’t supposed to do this (in theory). To progress, you have to notice this and then let it go. How? By realizing that every human makes mistakes and that, even though it hurts, it has to be accepted.

 

Be overly Grateful – Secondly, you must always find something to be grateful for in every single moment. When life kicks us to the ground, it can be hard to be grateful, but this is a powerful technique if you can master it correctly. How? Above all else, you have to live in the present because this is the only way you can recognize what’s in front of you. As soon as you do this, you can accept reality and make the best of a bad situation.

 

Judge much less – If you continue to judge something or someone, there is no way you will ever move on. If you still hold onto blame (even towards yourself), you have to let go of this judgment otherwise, the pain will stay with you for years to come. Even if you aren’t pleased with what happened, you can still relieve yourself of the burden by letting go of judgments. If you manage to do this, it doesn’t mean that you support what happened but rather you want to release the negativity and accept it to then move on.

tough-situations

Attend to others – Finally, place your focus on someone else rather than thinking you are the center of the universe. By doing this, you are getting out of the ‘how does it affect me’ mindset. Once we have someone to focus on, we stop feeling sorry for ourselves and realize that we were over-worrying about something that isn’t important. Again, this will lead to a removal of negativity and will allow you to accept and move on.

 

As mentioned at the beginning, it is all about how we react and how we pick ourselves up from the ground. By following these simple tips, you will be putting yourself in the best possible position for happiness.

Keep Your Distance From These Types of People

Look out for these 6 types of people to avoid becoming one of them..

In life, we are told to be happy because this can influence other people too. Does this mean it reflects in the opposite way? Yes, people around you will feel negative if you project it onto them. However, rather than looking at how you can affect people, we are going to look at how other people can influence you. For this reason, we have six types of people you should avoid if you want to keep the right mindset in life.

 

Note: The names used do not reflect real people, focus on removing the types of people not everyone you know with the names we will use!

 

Negative Nigel – Sooner or later, you will come across people who will only talk about the negative things in their life, and you need to keep your distance from them entirely. If you spend too much time around them, their negative mood will affect you and distract you from your goals.

 

Gossip Gloria – Some people just love to gossip, and although it is natural to a point, you should never spend your time with people who gossip all day long. Rather than focusing on other lives, focus on your own and you will make more progress.

 

Party Peter – now and then, we all need to spend some time away from work and let our hair down. However, this doesn’t mean that you need to go out every night. Not only will this drain your body and mind of all energy, but your wallet will also see the consequences. As soon as you can walk away from this type of person, you can start to introduce healthy habits like getting up early in the morning.

 

Judge Julia – At no point in your life should you feel as though someone is beneath you; for this reason, you need to be around people who don’t judge. Every person on this planet is unique, and so the only acts you should be questioning are your own; after all, these are the only ones you can control and change.

 

Complaining Carl – Just like the negative person we discussed previously, the complainer likes to whine about every little thing. From the weather to the price of a loaf of bread, they make it their life’s ambition to complain every day. If you fall into this habit, you will struggle to see the bright side of situations and your positive mindset will be gone.

 

Bully Brenda – Finally, you should also stay away from those who like to bully. Regardless of whether they are bullying you or someone else, you want to be around people that are genuinely pleasant and are happy not to change other people. Over time, they will change, and they will see that it is themselves with the problem, but you don’t have to be a part of this.

 

These are six types of people you should try and keep your distance from; if you can do this, you will be keeping all unnecessary negativity away from your life which will then allow you to stay positive and focus on growth and progress.
