we make that list but how often do we stick to it?
I am a happy, positive person although I have not always been this way, through trial and error, through pain and a bit of suffering I have found what works for me;
- Self discipline for me is key to everything else
- Be dedicated & motivated & prepared for change
- Do the things that others don't want to do
- Reduce material possession - I am always much freer and less stressed without clutter, grasping, fixing or holding.
- Be original don't be afraid to follow your own path as long as your heart is full of good intention
- Surround yourself with positive, interesting & motivated people
- Refrain from ALL intoxicants; you don't need them if you live a satisfied whole existence. You will always lose they will always win.
- Stop watching TV; this device corrupted, manipulated and infested my free thought for years.
- Walk more often and leave the car at home - whilst walking my mind is super active and alert.
- Immerse yourself in nature as often as you can.
- Consume organic, locally produced, non packaged, no GMO food - one of the many reasons I now live in Portugal.
- Take a back seat - sometimes its good to sit back and listen to friends or watch the world go on around you.
- Think more local, act more local - supporting my fellows, a good word here, directing people there always works. Banging your head against the walls around international politics is pointless; be the seeds of change.
- Seek out visionaries of the future - change will come and those who adapt quickest will thrive and be able to help others.
- Keep physical exercise & activity a priority in your life - you will never regret a healthier life.
- Encourage, Support and be the facilitator of positivity in those around you
- Be compassionate but distance yourself from those that act or talk about others in a negative way
- Give people your views on how to make their lives happier, more content they will pretend not to listen but they actually will.
- Seek knowledge & learn new things; with the internet it is possible to study subjects & interests without ever paying a University fee, after all who cares about a degree certificate, education is truly free.
