Seven Daily Top Tips
that have helped me on my journey of life
These are some of the things that have helped me to live my best life, and overcome obstacles in my way.
1. Have a positive attitude
I choose to have a positive attitude of gratitude, every single day. Each day is the first day of the rest of my life, so I want to make it count.
2. Plan & set goals
I have created an ever evolving and morphing plan of what I want my future vision of my life to be (including long, medium and short term goals, covering all areas of my life together with immediate family members through our family’s yearly goals & vision book).
3. Exercise regularly
I made myself fall in love with exercise, even if I had to trick myself to become an early person. Strategies to help me keep this up including eating fresh healthy whole food to fuel my body, putting a fitness plan on the fridge, I have walking & running buddies to hold me accountable and I also regularly enter charity run/walk/cycle events. Exercise is my free hit of endorphins every day.
4. Follow the law of reciprocity
I work daily to keep open, positive, honest, vulnerable communication with the people in my life that matter, focusing on where I can help them and not me. I follow the law of reciprocity every day, the giver’s gain philosophy.
5. Challenge my brain
I regularly assess where I need to be focusing my learning, and what I should be researching to develop myself more. Always learning is my way of keeping my brain active and challenged.
6. Tackle challenges head on
6. I tackle challenges head on. As Gabrielle Bernstein says in her book Daring Greatly, ‘Our challenges in life are just life’s assignments and we are never given an assignment we can’t handle.’
7. Meditate daily
I make it mandatory to do daily mediation both upon waking and before I go to sleep, focusing on all the things I am grateful for. I also mediate during the day when fear comes knocking on the door, and within minutes my fear runs away and my heart rates slows.
I recommend that you too should sit down and think about your core values, and what motivates you to be the best person you can be. If you are regularly going against your beliefs and not living your life in line with your true essence of being, then it’s time to reflect on that and make better daily choices to live your best life possible.
