38. Do What You Love
If money were no object, what would you like to do? How would you really enjoy spending your life? If you think that getting money is the most important thing you will spend your life completely wasting your time.
If you truly like what you do, eventually you will master it and at some point, you will make money from it. Do what you love first, the money will follow.
37. Face Your Fears
When you let fear interfere with your life, you end up sitting on the sidelines. The only way to overcome fear is to face it. When you face your fears you realize that what your mind built up, wasn’t anything close to the reality of the situation.
Take a breath, count to three and do it.
36. Accept and Embrace Yourself
By exploring yourself, you find your innermost beliefs, values, ideas, and emotions. This gives us an understanding of how we carry ourselves in everyday life. You gain a better idea of understanding why you behave a certain way and once you understand yourself, you can accept and embrace all aspects of your being.
Embracing yourself means accepting your strengths and weaknesses, your dark and light, yin, and yang polarities. Without acceptance, you can’t flourish.
35. Don’t Hold Onto Anger
When you hold anger, you will get burned. You may think that your anger to punish another, but you are only punishing yourself.
34. Change Your Perspective
When situations arise you may immediately feel emotions arising, whether you feel slighted, agitated, or downright annoyed. Look for a new angle. By putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, you’ll be able to see it from a different view-point.
33. End Hurtful Relationships
Life is too short to stick around somewhere you are unhappy. If you are in a relationship that is not healthy, break it off. Clear your head, get some alone time. Do whatever it is you have to do to remove yourself from the situation to process your own thoughts and emotions.
32. Let Go of Control
The idea that you have control is a fallacy. Life is an adventure and is meant to be experienced as you flow with the ups and downs of life. The more you try to control, the more “pushy” you become, and the only thing you will do is push everything and everyone away.
31. Live in the Present Moment
There is nothing like the present moment. There is no point in dreaming about the future or regretting the past. What you have is today, so make the most of it.
30. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
The older we get the more our comfort zones shrink. Things become regular, routine, and stale. The rest of our lives are spent on schedule, following the same patterns. While it is comfortable, it doesn’t allow for growth.
Experiencing new things catapults us and gives new-found freedom and confidence.
29. Go with the Flow
When you are rigid it’s like trying to swim upriver. You are going to struggle. When you are easy-going you’re flowing like water, letting whatever the day might bring, flow with you. Life flows, energy flows, the music flows, dance flows, listen to the rhythm and the flow, and dance with it.
28. Push Your Boundaries
Know your limits but don’t ever accept them.
27. Explore Yourself
Do you know who you truly are? Can you look in a mirror and say in one sentence more than just what defines you?
26. Make Heartfelt Connections
Never underestimate the impact you can have on someone else’s life.
25. Love What You Do
Your greatest work will come from loving what you do. When you don’t love what you do, you have settled for less and have given up on your dreams. Don’t settle for less, create your masterpiece.
