Look, I get it – we all want stuff. We want a bigger and more badass car, more adventure, more money, more trips, more whatever. We also want the real stuff: more love, better relationships, and real friends. But, it’s not fate or destiny standing in your way – it’s you! If you’re like most people, then you’ve tried and failed at least a hundred times and are still left waiting and wanting. Well, here is where we change your life – NOW!
Listed below are 5 ways to bring whatever you want into your life immediately.
1. Get Up Earlier
Why? Because the people that are successful in the area that you want to be successful in all get up early. So, do it! “But what do I do when I’m up?”, you say. You’ll figure it out. Just get up! Go and read, workout, run, get to the gym, meditate, do yoga! I don’t care what it is that you do – just get up early and spend some time with yourself while the rest of the world is still sleeping. Wake up early every day and watch the magic of the morning do its thing and change your life.
My mom always makes fun of me whenever we go out together because I will greet and talk to everyone. She laughs and says, “if you’re not networking, you’re not working.” I laugh back because it’s so true! The way to make better connections and networks is by talking to people! Get out there and try new things, go to new places, and most importantly, TALK TO PEOPLE! Talk to everyone! Stop playing it so cool – who do you think you are? Talk to the grocery clerk, the waitress, your Uber driver – I don’t care who it is – just talk to new people. You never know how one person could be the missing piece that changes your life and solves your puzzle. Get out there an open your orifice and talk to people (and yes I said orifice)!
3. Have a Habit of Never Breaking Your Word
How is this going to bring you more money, better relationships, or help you get into shape? What does this have to do with your success? It has everything to do with it! Get into the habit of saying what you mean and meaning what you say. Don’t flake, don’t cancel plans last minute – just don’t be that guy. Be the person whose word is golden. If you need help moving, you can bet Johnny is going be there and not flake. Be like Johnny. But, people like Johnny don’t exist anymore. So, set a goal and simply follow through on your word: “I’m getting up at 5 am to work out dammit!”, or “I’m reading a new book every month.” See how sticking to your word can drastically change your life?
4. Tell that Crew BYE!
Look, I mean no offense to you and your rave buddies, but I can bet you right now that all of you are in the exact same boat. What does that mean? It means you all make the same amount of money, you all have similar vacation time, and you all have similar relationships. If you want more from life, then you’re going to have to tell that crew BYE! You can’t hang with chickens if you want to soar with eagles. Yes, ouch, I know it’s hard to hear but trust me – it’s your life we’re talking about here! Hang out with people who have what you want. Do you want a better relationship? Then hang out with couples who actually like each other. Do you want to make more money? Hang out with successful, goal-driven people! It’s science! Your tribe attracts your vibe. Look it up. It’s in the Geneva Convention.
5. Never Ever Complain Ever Again – Ever!
Words are more powerful than you think – so shut up! You’re tired, you work too hard, you don’t have enough money, you’re alone, Steve from accounting is annoying. Blah, blah, blah. No one wants to hear it and you can’t afford to keep slowing down your progress by complaining. Speak with power, speak with positivity, and be happy! Be the one that everyone describes as always smiling, happy-go-lucky, and filled with joy. People with a positive outlook on life attract great things. These people live with optimism and expect happiness. So, be one of those people – and do it now!
There you have it.
Five extraordinarily simple ways to bring whatever you want into your life at lightning-fast speed! Do these things every day and continue to do them until you look around one day and notice your life has done a 180-degree turn for the better. Then once you look around at how awesome your life is, reach out a helping hand to those that need you. This will bring you a million times more satisfaction than all your accomplishments and successes combined (funny how that works, eh?).
