Assume you’re getting near to the limit of your days. Perhaps the ticking of your monthly period has become too much for you at this point in your life. You are once again afflicted with a terminal ailment and are aware that your time runs out. Your family members are at your side, attempting to assist you in every way they can. You’re reflecting on your life’s events. You’ve lived long enough on this world to be considered “enough time” — perhaps 80 years. In any case, you have the impression that time has been spent. You wish you had been able to accomplish more. Let me walk you through how I went about making some of the most drastic changes in my life.
Step 1: When I was 18, a friend informed me about a book called Visualize Your Desires: 365 Ways To Make Your Dreams A Reality.
To clarify things, I didn’t use the internet until I was 18years old, and then only to read gaming blogs. But I was having problems in my first year of college, and a friend told me that if I read one page a day and spent 5–10 minutes thinking deeply about what that page said, my thoughts would begin to change: about the world, about myself, and even about being open to the concept of reading. (And no, this isn’t a promotion for a book.) It has based on a true story.) I woke up every day for two years, silently in my room, and read a page from this book. After that, I either sat (sitting in quiet) or note-taker about what the site had prompted me to consider. There are no correct answers, and there is no time limit. I just wrote down whatever came to me. Even if it didn’t make sense how I was thinking something seemingly unrelated, I wrote it nevertheless. Eventually, I’d establish a connection — and it’d make sense why I’d thought about what I had.
Step 2: As I already stated, I performed this for two years.
It’s been two years. Not in three days. It won’t be a couple of weeks. It’s been two years. I began to see that the folks I was around with were not supportive of me and what I wanted to become. I go ahead to realize that while I was good at coming up with ideas, I was awful at following through on them. I began to see why I struggled to make friends and how isolated I was from the rest of the world. Still, I stuck with it, reading my page every morning and thinking carefully about whatever came up.
Step 3: As time went on, I became increasingly conscious of my fears.
I was terrified of speaking with someone I’d never met or didn’t know well. I was frightened of declaring to almost anyone. When I realized this, I began to set goals for myself. When I lived in a large apartment complex with a single student, there was always someone on the elevator. I’d a target for myself to chat with one person on the elevator every day. Even if I only said “Hey,” it was a start. I had a lot of failures. I had a slew of hilarious conversations in which I sounded total stupid. With time, though, I became more at ease — and could strike up a conversation with anyone.
Step 4: After you learn to listen to yourself and trust yourself, you will realize that you are good enough.
Whatever it is that you want to achieve in life, you are deserving of it. However, before you can be your best self, you must first master basic principles. Another thing that helped me seriously was taking 5 minutes before going to bed every day, irrespective of if I went out now and returned home at three a.m. or called it a night and was in bed by 10 p.m., and saying out loud what I was grateful for that day. I didn’t do this for a week or a month, either. For two years, I did it. It is something that I continue to do. Daily, Regardless of the circumstances, Before going asleep, I still spend a few moments glancing out the window and say to myself, “Thank you for ‘whatever.’” It encourages the mind to go to bed with a grateful and open mindset. I’ve found that it helps me wake up more focused and cheerful.
These are my strategies; however, you may devise your own. I fair keep trying out new routines in the hopes of finding something that would help me work on the next aspect of myself that needs attention. I highly urge you to continue in my footsteps. In the process of self-improvement, there is no correct response. Consistency, on the other hand, is a requirement. Allowing oneself to become fatigued is not a good idea. Don’t use the phrase “tomorrow.” Go for it. Do it right now.
Remember to complete this before it’s too late. Do it before becoming sidetracked. Do it while you’re still caring — before another voice tells you that you shouldn’t. Accept that you’ll be as “blah, but I don’t want to!” for a tiny period. Attempt, regardless. You’ll be in it in a matter of seconds, and you’ll be glad you did. Follow that routine every day, and you’ll notice a difference in your life.
