8 Ways You Can Change Your Life and Business Today

Change your life. At the beginning of the year I thought about all the typical
resolutions people make. They say “ I am going to lose x amount
of pounds,” “I am going to be financially responsible,” etc…
After awhile I thought why can’t people just start the new year
off with some life changing resolutions like these:

change your life
change your life

1. Be grateful & change the attitude: Start each day off the
right way by thinking of all the things you are grateful for.
Wake up, grab a notebook with plenty of blank pages, and start
writing. Each day does not have to be a detailed page. Just
write how you feel and the things that you are grateful for. If
you are in a hurry jot down a few brief points. This behavior
will make you feel better every single day. The 1st day you are
full of glee and happiness, the 2nd day you have even more to be
grateful for, and by day 30 you have 102 things to be happy
about. Truly a life changing technique to change your outlook on

2. Redefine who you are: At first this might sound like a
tedious process, but really it boils down to some introspection
and some analysis of the following questions. First, “what is
your purpose in life?” Second, “what values define you and sit
closest to your heart?” Lastly, “why are you doing what you are
doing?” If you analyze these three questions and immediately
know the answers, then you are on the right track. Use those as
your fuel every day. If these questions are not exactly coming
to you right away put them in the previously mentioned notebook
and expand on them every day. Eventually, you will be jumping
out of bed because you realize that you are on a mission to
fulfill your unique purpose.

Helping others

3. Help those around you: It might sound corny, but helping
others is another way to help yourself. Just think about how
motivated you can become when you know that people are waiting
to see your face and your contribution.

4. Don’t conform too much: Everyone will tell you to just keep
pushing and working until you become a zombie that just bumbles
through each day. Clearly, that is not a healthy behavior for
progress because it takes the free will out of YOUR life. The
best way to fix this problem is to just do what you want to do
every once in a while. For example, you might want to create a
crazy new product that you thought of the other day, or you
might want to seek out a new business opportunity. Don’t be
afraid to just do it. A good rule of thumb is to think 80/20.
Work 80% of the time and do whatever YOU want to do that other
20% of the time. Maybe that crazy idea that has been in your
head for ages might pay off. Even if it doesn’t then you are
still better off because your mind will be free to explore other

5. Expand your mind: At first, you might think to yourself “my
mind does not really need to be expanded because I am already
doing fine.” That is a popular opinion, but the mind should
never be closed off and restricted from new experiences and
information because that will do the opposite of help you
exceling in life. Think of life as a game show where you never
know what is going to be asked and the tens of millions of
dollars are literally sitting right in front of you. Would you
be comfortable missing the ten million dollar question because
you did not spend the extra 5 minutes reading a book?

Become an expert

6. Become an expert in your niche: It should not be too
surprising to hear that the most successful people are the
people who do one thing better than everyone else in their
field. So if you are investing your time and effort in a
particular niche, you might as well try to be the best. Being
the best is simply a matter of perseverance and time. Spend 1-2
hours a day working when everyone else is sleeping, and the
results will speak for themselves.

7. Known your customers: Once again, the most successful people
are the people who invest more time in their particular field.
Perhaps the best way to excel at what you do is to talk to
customers and understand their mindset. Once you fully
understand what makes them tick you can act accordingly. Talking
to customers is also a great way to come up with revolutionary

8. Don’t be afraid to say yes: This is similar to the point
about expanding your mind. A person that says yes is very
similar to a person that chooses to constantly inject new
information into their brain. No is like a door that closes and
leaves you in the same boring situation, while yes is a room
filled with endless possibilities. Remember, no is boring and
close-minded, while yes is fun and open-minded.

To Your Success,
