3 Things That Have Made My Life Better
Life always has its ups and downs. I remember when I used to wake up in the middle of the night and ask myself what I am doing with my life. I would break out in sweat. I would begin to tear up and question the purpose I had in life.
Have you ever been in the spot that I have been in? Are you tired of being stuck? I know I did. It was not until I did three things that truly helped me grow in life. These things really helped me become everything that I am today.
Maybe this can help you. I know that some of this stuff can definitely help you in your life journey. I want to help you.

I have been thinking about the things that have impacted my life. It was not until I did these things that my life started to get better. I recommned that you follow these guidelines if you want to have a better life. Here are three things that have helped improve my life.
I SPEND TIME LEARNING NEW THINGS BY EDUCATING MYSELF
If there is one thing I can tell you that is that you must always educate yourself. There is a popular quote that comes to mind, “Do not let school get in the way of your education”. What I take from this is that we must always pursue knowledge. We must pursue to better ourselves constantly. What you put into your mind is what will come out. This is why I always commit myself to learn at least one thing new every single day. There is no day where I do not either read, listen, or watch something that is educational.
Start today by challenging yourself with something that you can learn today. Those who are successful in life spend at least 30min a day learning new things from their particular craft.
I SURROUND MYSELF WITH LIKE MINDED INDIVIDUALS
It is true what they say you are the average of the 5 people you spend time with. After understanding this principle, I began to think about the people in my life and those that I know will influence me in the right direction that I want to go. I learned that it is far better for me to find the people in my life that will push me. This is why I started a mastermind group of 6 entrepreneurs who want to grow their business. This is why I surrounded myself with people who are Christian’s and spent time at the church. This is why I decided to have friendships with people who are hungry and want to learn. What are three characteristics that you want to grow in? Mine are these three
I want to own a multimillion dollar business
I want to love and grow in my relationship with God
I want to be a person who people can rely on and depend on
What are you three things? Once you think about those things begin surrounding yourself with people who have similar goals and you will begin to see something. You will begin to see your passion grow.
I TOOK OWNERSHIP OF MY LIFE
I had every excuse in the book ready for me to use as arsenal whenever someone asked me how my life was. I would always complain and think about the negatives. Sometimes I think about the negatives, but I have learned to fight those urges of blaming my circumstance. It wasn’t until I had enough. It wasn’t until the day came when I said to myself I’m tired of feeling sorry for myself and thinking of so many excuses on why I am not where I want to be.
Take ownership of your life today. The place right now that you are in is all dependent on those choices you have made in life. Take control of your life and tell yourself how you can make your days better. Find ways to live a life of full control of yourself.
If you truly want to improve take ownership of where you are and where you want to be. It is up to your if you want to be a person who makes things happen and is proactive or reactive.
