10 Tiny Ways To Massively Level Up And Transform Your Life
[This will have an impact]
Know Your Worth. Don’t let anybody discount you, take you for granted, or tell you that you aren’t worth what you know you are. Understand and never sell out your value.
Develop Flexibility. Find a way to respond positively to things that are difficult, and unexpected. A great eway to do this is to copy what improv artists do; never say No, But…always say, Yes, And!
Recognise Your Ego. My ego has stopped me from being able to make money doing what I love, being able to sleep at night, and being able to just enjoy my life. You have to recognise the times your ego is telling you that you’re too good for something. And then realise your ego is wrong.

Make Continuous Learning a Priority. This is the best advice I have to give for anybody. Always. Be. Learning. Because when you learn, you’re suiting up and arming yourself to be prepared for any catastrophe that life can throw at you.
Stop Flinching Whenever Something Happens. The key to white knuckling it through any tough shit, is to be able to face it without flinching. The key to that, I’ve always found, is to always ask, what is the worst that could happen? Once you know how to deal with it, you won’t flinch…
