LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE
Whose life is this anyway?! We spend way too much time worrying about other people. We want to fit in. We want what the other person has. The internet has made it so easy to fall into comparing yourself to others. There's a lot of reasons to want to consider others, but it isn’t always good for us. Too much time spent worrying about what other people are thinking or doing takes away from your life. You start losing authenticity. Your goals and dreams start looking like everyone else's. You lose who you were created to be. It's time to break out of this cycle. When you live life on your terms, you find yourself accomplishing more and being happier in your day. You become more you than you ever were before and are free to live your BEST life.
Here are 6 ways to help you do this.
Create a Better Focus
If you have frequently been in the habit of looking to see what other people are doing, it's time to shift your attention to you. Forget keeping up with the Joneses. What are your goals for the day? What are you trying to accomplish? What is the work which needs to be done by your hands? Paying attention to you means you don't have time to worry about anyone else. I’m not talking about neglecting your responsibilities. I’m talking about making time to remember yourself as well.
Weed Out Your Friends List
I say it all the time, cultivate your circle! When you're busy being worried about what other people think of you, it's easy to put up with behavior, which isn't excellent for you to be around. Quite frankly, some people are toxic. These are people who put you down, steal your energy, make you feel bad about yourself, and sometimes even hurt you. When you're true to yourself, you don't hang around people who hurt you. Protect your energy and peace. Honor your personal boundaries.
Hone Your Gifts
It's not uncommon to have something which you are particularly good at. But how often do you indulge in this? Are you using your gifts and talents? When you are true to yourself, this means making frequent use of your gifts and even sharing them with the world. Your gifts are meant to be shared.
Forget the Money
Do you make decisions based upon what will give you the most money? It's an easy trap to fall into. Consider this: sometimes we need to do the things which are the most fulfilling over which are the most rewarding. Your bank account might not thank you, but your most genuine self will. It’s cliche, but the best things in life really are free.
So, you did a thing. Rather than wasting time trying to impress other people with your accomplishments, step back. People will notice the results of your work and appreciate it without your pointing it out. Pro tip? You'll appreciate the compliment more when you're not fishing for it. In the meantime, learn to celebrate yourself.
Shine, Shine, Shine!
Most of all, live outside the lines! Be who you are and all your magnificent, fantastic glory. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. When you embrace who you are, you're finally living your BEST life. It's a great place to be!
