How to take a step back and look at things differently

As we’re getting into the last part of the year, what I’ve been thinking about lately is how simple life can really be. And there’s a quote I love by Jim Rohn when he says, “Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better.”

Here are some simple solutions I’ve been pondering to common problems people face:

Not happy?

Write down everything you’re grateful for. If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of the world.

If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

Once you express your gratitude, write down activities and people that make you happy and schedule it in your calendar!

Not satisfied with your health?

Start counting your calories, put a large deposit down to someone saying you’ll do a workout plan for a month and if you don’t you forfeit your deposit to a charity you DESPISE. Also, check out HealthyWage. Personally, for the month of November I’ve taken on the challenge of going without alcohol, and it was easier thanks to the advice of The Life Coach School to be in the mindset of someone who doesn’t desire things that are bad for you. It wasn’t even a question whether I wanted it or not.

Not making enough money?

Ask yourself what’s your specialty? Read blogs/books/ask people who are experts on how to charge for more for it. Don’t know your specialty? Read how to invest in the stock market. Don’t want to do that? Make a specialty up and read 10 books on the subject!
