31 Ways To Make Your Life Great Again.

  1. Talk less than you listen. Think more than you do either of those.
  2. Write down your goals. Make them an indelible part of your daily motivation.
  3. Worry less about what other people think about you and more about how hard you are working.
  4. Call it as you see it. Don’t be unkind and don’t be passive aggressive.  Just be candid.
  5. Correct yourself when you could be doing better. Get serious about being the best version of you possible.
  6. Receive criticism for what it is — the opinions of other people. Use what helps you best.
  7. Separate facts from fear. Don’t make decisions based on how things “might go”. Live inspired.
  8. Work as hard as you can. And then keep working. Working smarter won’t help you be amazing.
  9. Buy books. Buy a great coach. Invest in a great team to help you get to where you want to be.
  10. Drop anything (or anyone) who is holding you back from where you want to be.
  11. Knock out tasks every time you have a free moment. Waste less time watching television.
  12. Need to be better. Don’t just try to be better, ache because you’re not better already.
  13. Read great books. Readers are leaders. People who don’t read are idiots.
  14. Sell better. All of life is a sales pitch. Get better at the craft of influencing other people.
  15. Wish your way to a better life. Work your way to actually getting there.
  16. Drink less. Exercise more. Develop better financial skills.
  17. Kill fear with kindness. Kill cynicism with results.
  18. Raise the bar. Do better tomorrow than you did yesterday.
  19. Remind yourself to see the powerful, positive side of any situation.
  20. Invest in something that matters – YOU. Invest in others. Give to great causes.
  21. Continue doing what you’re doing now. It takes time to deliver big results.
  22. Dress for success. More importantly — live like you want to be successful.
  23. Form your own opinions. Don’t let other people force their bias on you.
  24. Keep your head in the game. What you think about you become.
  25. Put your priorities in order. Don’t let the small details fall through the cracks
  26. Mind your manners. No one likes to be around a slob.
  27. Push past the pain you feel. You’ll feel better when you get to where you want to be.
  28. Forgive those who do you wrong. Don’t let negativity cripple your ability to be amazing.
  29. Do what needs to be done. Do it each day. Until you’re done
  30. Stop complaining. Stop whining. Stop wasting your time with things that don’t matter.
  31. Start doing what you’ve been scared to do up until now.
