We all do it, we wish for a better life, pray for times to get better, for things to change and then decide that we will take those huge steps... Tomorrow. But tomorrow really never comes and pushing back the change only stops us from ever making it. So here are the 4 things you need to promise yourself TODAY, right now, to achieve the life you want.
1. Promise yourself you will stop wasting your own time. No one has enough time and there is nothing we can do about that. But let's talk about controlling what we can. Your time is precious and wasting it is a capital crime. And no, I don't mean a day of laying on the couch watching TV and relaxing is a waste. I'm talking about spending your time and energy on people who don't do the same for you. Im talking about doing things because you feel like you're suppose to, not because you want to. It's your time, own it.
2. Promise yourself you'll look in the mirror and stop seeing ONLY changes. We all have image issues, even if their small. Improvements we want to make that glare at us from the mirror. But to be honest, changing how you look is only about 10% of the battle. You need to change the way you love yourself, so start actually doing it. Look in the mirror and decide that you are amazing, and beautiful, and exactly who you need to be at this moment in time.
3. Promise yourself you won't ever lose your voice. All to often we take the back seat to our life, our decisions, even our opinions. Stop! This is your life, do not let anyone else's words fall out of your mouth. Your thoughts are so uniquely yours that you are actually doing the world a disservice not voicing them.
4. Promise to start thinking in the today. Obviously we plan for the future, what's the point of doing anything if there is no affect on the future right? But let's stop thinking about change and happiness in a tomorrow sense. This can all be achieved today, all it takes is one small step. Promise yourself you'll seize your day.
