We all want to get ahead, right? The first thing we need to decide is what we are willing to let go of. Yes, changing ones life is about letting go of what is not working, but also having the courage to make a change in your habits. I can’t tell you how many times I have done that, but you already know that is one of the hardest things to do in life. But, we must do it and I am serious about that if you know me at all.
It takes courage to make changes
Making changes is paramount to getting ahead in any endeavor whether it is personal or business change, doesn’t matter. You can call it growth for new success, or letting go of personal fear, but, you must do it, make that minor change in order to get to a better life.
Sometimes we get stuck in a rut complaining about what other people are doing or not doing. But, we control ourselves everyday in every way. Suck it up and get started, this is your kick in the pants, now just go out and do it.
Respect Your Personal and Work Life Obligations
If you are often late for family functions, or to work, set an alarm earlier to make sure you make a good attempt to honor your commitments. Be on time that shows that you respect your obligations and the people around you. At work it even means you respect your boss, or position at work. Otherwise you might lose your job. Come on shake it up, work on being better day to day. Do the work to advance the change you really want.
Number 1. Save yourself some money,
Stop procrastinating, don’t call the food take out palace, go to the store and buy your own ingredients for a meal. Fix it yourself, you will get more for your money because depending on what you are cooking most likely you will get double to amount of food for the same price as takeout (sometimes three times the amount).
If you are on a diet, change one thing a week, cut out sugars. Use natural sugar instead of regular. Stop drinking soda, immediately, especially diet soda. Diet soda is killing people and they don’t know why they feel bad. It is extremely bad for your kidneys. Drink herbal teas, black and green teas are great for your body. Don’t stop drinking coffee, it’s really good for you, but don’t overdo it. Four cups a day is great if you can handle that. Stop adding the high calorie creamers, check the labels when buying them in the store. Use natural sugar, not the blue or pink sugars. The pink and blue packages are just another diet no no because they do more harm than good, like diet sodas.
