#1. Understand The Power Of Belief

First and foremost, we must discuss the undeniable power of belief.

The magnitude of how quickly your life can change is a measurement of how much you believe in the power of your mind.

This is science, folks.

Dr. Bruce Lipton’s The Biology of Belief studies have shown that the brain of a cell is not found in the nucleus or within the genes of DNA like we are so often led to believe.

In fact, the brain of a cell is found in the cellular membrane, the very outer layer of the cell.

This shows that our biology is not limited to, or a victim of, our genes, but instead controlled by signals from outside the cell.

Meaning the chemical messages sent from the brain.

Who do you think is in charge of the chemical messages sent from the brain?

Certainly not a magical gypsy. YOU are in control of those messages.

What you choose to believe and how you perceive the world around you is what controls your entire biology, and your world.

#2. Only Compare Yourself With Who You Were Yesterday

It’s easy to get caught up in the trap of constantly comparing ourselves with others, especially in this era of social media where everyone’s highlight reel is on display. However, this unhealthy habit often leads to feelings of inadequacy and deep-rooted insecurities that hinder personal growth.

Instead of constantly seeking external validation and measuring your worth based on others’ achievements, try shifting your focus inward.

Embrace the journey of becoming the best version of yourself by setting daily challenges and consistently investing in self-improvement.

By dedicating yourself to constant growth and learning, you’ll not only develop valuable skills but also cultivate a sense of self-assurance and confidence that comes from within.

This way, you can rise above the suffocating weight of comparisons and foster your own path to success, authentic to who you truly are.

#3. Look Around You

You’re going to miss this (I frequently write this on my arm as a reminder).

In life, we hardly ever take the time to stop and look around at the magic that is already happening.

Life is constantly changing, and we often wait until a moment is over to realize its greatness.

Someday we might be looking back on the times we are having right now (I generally do this when I hear music), thinking to ourselves, “man, that was great.”

With regret, we often then realize that we had been sitting like bystanders, watching it all go by.

Not truly living in it, or recognizing it for what it is.

The times in life that I have been the most happy, I knew I was happy.

Stop, look around you, and be in the present moment. Take a deep breath, and feel it for what it is.

#4. Look At Troubles Differently

One immediate and sure way to improve your life instantly is to change your perception of troubles and difficulties.

As Paulo Coelho brilliantly said, “‘Difficulty is the name of an ancient tool that was created purely to help us define who we are.”

Meaning difficulty helps build our character, and it is how we respond to it that shapes who we are.

Rather than looking at difficulties as tormentors, try looking at them as teachers.

Know that every time you are uncomfortable, it means you are growing.

So when faced with a difficult situation, focus on how it is helping you grow, and how you are becoming a stronger person because of it.

#5. Fill Up Your Own Cup

Appreciation, happiness, validation, and love are all things we commonly look outside of ourselves to find.

Our lives begin to become a struggle because we are relying on other people to fill up our metaphorical “cups.”

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned so far in my life is that absolutely no one should be responsible for filling up your cup.

Your self-appreciation, happiness, validation, and love all need to come from within you.

After you have filled up your own cup, you can let it overflow into the cups of others.

No one else can possibly be responsible for filling up your cup, as well as their own.

#6. Be Mindful

I was in line at a grocery store once and this lady frantically cut in front of me, continuing forth to be very curt and demanding to the clerk.

“Whoa, how rude, I can’t believe that! Ugh! Can you believe some people?” I rhetorically asked my friend, obviously venting.

My friend took a deep breath and said calmly, “I heard her on the phone in the bathroom. She just found out that her sister got into a terrible car accident and might not make it, she’s probably trying to get to the hospital.”

Boy did I feel terrible.

No wonder she felt rushed and frantic. I felt like such a jerk for not even considering what her world must be like.

That feeling I had, accompanied by the realization that the world exists outside my own personal universe, is what David Foster Wallace described as “water.”

What he means by that is sometimes in life, the most obvious, important realities, the things that are happening all around us, are oftentimes the most difficult to see, and usually go unnoticed.

Believing that we are the most important and only thing in our worlds, we tend to think the worst of others.

The trick to being mindful is deciding how to think, and what to think, especially throughout all of our most monotonous routines like going to the grocery store.

It is our natural default setting to think selfishly, but if we just snap out of that and choose what we want to consider and how we want to feel about the situation, our worlds can change.

For example, road rage is a real thing. But in your life, it doesn’t have to be.

When a person cuts you off, perhaps consider that maybe they just found out their sister got into a serious car accident and might not make it, or maybe consider that their wife is in the passenger seat going into labor.

It doesn’t matter if these things are true or not.

It’s a matter of making a conscious decision of how to think about them.

#7. Create A Story Of Your Day

This is a fantastic way to start visualizing.

Physically or mentally write a story of your day before it happens.

Think about how you would like it to go. Think about the energy you want to have and the energy you want to put out into the world.

What you want to accomplish and how you want to affect people.

At first this exercise might seem silly.

But once you get going with it, you will begin to notice the little things in life and all of the joy and happiness that we tend to overlook as we go about our day.

And as time passes, you will find yourself in a better mood and happier with life..

#8. Visualization

Through visualization, your imagination acts as an incubator for your dreams.

You could call the visualizations “pre-matter,” because what we are visualizing is what will be materialized in the world we see outside of ourselves.

Our thoughts and inner images all have a consciousness of their own, and they yearn to be manifested physically, acting as cogs in a reality machine.

The biggest road block people come across with visualization is in their limited thinking.

It is not the power of thought that is limited, it is our belief systems.

Perhaps by starting with something small, and seeing it manifested, we can begin to work our way up to bigger and greater things.

This of course, is the slow way to bring greatness into our lives.

The more deeply you understand your power, the quicker things will manifest.

My most prominent limited thought is that I have to work really hard to get things in life, which means that money can’t flow easily to me and that I must be somewhat of a slave to “the system.”

Since this belief system has been ingrained in me by society since I was a wee little tot, it is difficult to let go of.

What I do instead is just focus on and visualize self-worth and abundance.

I close my eyes and see myself walking in a bright light with my head held high, and I feel this big expansion in my chest.

The feeling represents my worthiness equal to everyone else’s and everything flowing into my life easily and effortlessly.

I don’t imagine certain things happening, I simply imagine the feeling I want to have, and the more and more I do so, the more I feel self-worth and abundance radiating in and out of all the inner workings of my life.

Dream and visualize as far as your beliefs will let you, and don’t be afraid to dream BIG.

With the power of belief, it will begin to manifest.

#9. Crank The Tunes

You heard me correctly.

Studies show that when we are listening to and enjoying a song we like, our blood pressure and stress reduce, and our moods are instantly improved.

Did you know that cortisol, the stress hormone, shuts down many parts of the prefrontal cortex?

It makes sense.

If we are in a “fight or flight” situation, we need our instincts.

So if you are stressed out about a test for example, it will greatly increase your test score to listen to a song you love and dance around a bit instead of cramming at the last second

#10. Empty Your Head

Want to feel clear-headed and free all the time?

Carry a notebook around with you and write down important thoughts throughout the day as they pop into your head.

These thoughts could be genius ideas, inventions, things you need to get done, things you are worried about, two words that rhyme, it doesn’t matter.

Your notebook will take care of them for you, so you don’t have this background stress of trying to hold on to all of these thoughts.

When you clear your mind, you leave space for new, brilliant thoughts to walk in.

This is how geniuses are made!

Personally, journaling is my go to stress reliever.

It is great to get the worries and thoughts out of my head and on to paper. Plus it serves as a healthy reminder and puts things into perspective.

When I read back over what I’ve written, I realize not all of the “end of the world” situations were that big after all.

And the ones that were big and stressful show me that I can get through and overcome most anything.

#11. Be Alert, Evolve, Adapt

As a nomad, it is sometimes really difficult to not continuously look back on where I’ve been and miss it, especially when I leave somewhere great.

What has helped me get through the hardships of my nomadic lifestyle more than anything is remembering to be alert, evolve, and adapt.

Anytime life has me feeling crazy, like I just took some giant steps from where I felt comfortable, it is important that I become alert to the process and what is happening.

Then I remind myself that I am constantly evolving and moving forward.

I may look back and miss the person I was in Nicaragua, or the life I had there, but now I am someone bigger.

I am bigger from the experiences I had, the lessons I learned, the people I met, and the person I was.

Now I am stepping into a new, more evolved self.

The mindset of “I’m moving forward, I’m evolving,” gives me so much room to gain new experiences, learn new lessons, meet new people, and become a new, wiser, more evolved person.

Lastly, I adapt accordingly, and live life through this new, fresh lens.

When life shakes you and you feel as though you might fall over, take a deep breath, reminisce with clarity and appreciation, and take a step into that new, reborn person.

Create that peace of mind and confidence in your ability to grow.

The more conscious we are of our evolution, the more quickly we evolve.

#12. Breathe

No matter what situation I find myself in, I am always saved by remembering that my state of mind and my rate of breathing are completely entangled.

The slower I am breathing, the slower my mind is working and the more control I have over it.

On the contrary, the more rapidly my breathing becomes, the more erratic my mind is.

Gaining control over your breath means gaining control over your mind, and control over your mind means control over your body.

It all begins with the breath.

I often notice myself breathing quickly and shortly, finding that my thoughts become frantic and muddled.

As soon as I correct my breathing, I feel my entire self becoming a lot lighter and clearer.

Seven big, deep breaths will usually do the job.

It’s the simplest, quickest trick to instantly improve your life.

#13. Don’t Forget to Have Fun

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that life is not just about achieving goals, but also about enjoying the process.

The journey of becoming our best selves should be full of laughter and joy!

It’s important to take some time off from work and obligations to relax, spend time with friends and family, or do something completely outside of your comfort zone.

This will help to create a healthy balance between achieving your goals and having fun, so you can find joy in the present moment.

By making sure that you take breaks from work, enjoy yourself, and stay connected with the people who matter most to you, you’ll be able to make your journey of personal growth even more fulfilling.

#14. Set Goals and Make a Plan

The first step to self-improvement is setting clear, achievable goals. 

Without knowing where you want to go, it’s impossible to take the right steps towards your destination.

Take some time to write down your short-term and long-term goals so that you have a clear direction for where you’re heading. 

Once you have your goals, create a plan that details what steps you need to take in order to accomplish those goals.

Having an actionable plan will help keep you focused and motivated as you work towards reaching your desired outcomes.

#15. Get Organized

Organization is essential for making progress in life, so make sure to develop a system or method that allows you to stay organized.

Whether that means creating a calendar or using an app, it’s important to find a system that works for you and helps keep your tasks in order.

Organization will not only help you streamline your workflow but also give you more time to focus on self-improvement.
