How To Be Awesome All The Time
Being incredibly awesome takes a lot of hard work and dedication. But it will all pay off! I am not telling you it is going to be an easy journey, but I am telling you it is going to be worth it. Give these seven tips a try and you will not be disappointed.
How To Be Awesome All The Time 🙂
Focus on being awesome.
Instead of focusing on the negative, concentrate on the positive. Positive thinking should become your way of life. This is not simply a cliché. When you are able to focus on the good there is an actual tangible benefit – your mind becomes more open to possibilities. Positive thinking stimulates the exploration and creation of new abilities that you can then harness to improve your life and generally enhance your awesomeness. Tell yourself to always remember that you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think you are and twice as attractive as you have ever imagined. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
Actively seek awesomeness.
Do whatever you need to do to take control of your life, whether it’s taking a walk, adopting healthier eating habits, meditating, spending some time with a close friend or simply drinking a cup of tea. Some people want it to happen, some people wish that it would happen, and other people make it happen. Strive to make awesomeness happen – but don’t just go through the motions. Give it your one hundred percent, best, all-out effort. Remember that the difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.
If you are occupied with negative emotions, unhappiness will follow. Negative thoughts eat away at you and leave no room for positive feelings. You close off your mind when you focus on the downside. First figure out what is dragging you down – you have already taken the first step to overcoming negative thinking.
It will be difficult at first, but you can learn to turn negative thoughts and emotions into positive ones. Treat this exercise in the same way you would treat any problem: assess, determine a plan of action and execute. This technique applies to any goal you have – whether it is finding a new job, losing weight or sticking to a budget. Constantly worrying without taking action is not productive. Take small, manageable baby steps at first, and set realistic, achievable goals. Let those small successes feed into your positive outlook and be the building blocks to your larger victory. Stay motivated – the moment that you are ready to quit is usually the moment right before the miracle happens. Do not give up on your path to incredible awesomeness.
Surround yourself with awesome people.
Consider who you want to have in your life, and how they may influence your well-being. If you feel that you are stuck in a negative spiral, talk to people who can help you put things into perspective and provide constructive, empathetic feedback.
Model yourself after awesome people. Learn about their achievements, and even more important – learn whatever you can from their mistakes. Chances are that they achieved awesomeness in their life through persistence and hard work, and you can do the same. Try to emulate their behavior as much as you can, and awesomeness will follow.
Remember that the grass is not always greener on the other side.
Try to always be grateful for what you have. Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you do not have. Try not to forget that what you now have was once among the things you had only hoped for. If you can learn to appreciate what you have you will naturally be happier and be well on your way to ultimate awesomeness.
Do awesome things.
Be kind to your friends and family, whether it is reaching out to a loved one you have not spoken to who would love to hear from you, or offering to babysit your young nieces and nephews to help out their parents. Be kind to strangers. Pay attention to the needs and feelings of others, and offer help where you can. There are many simple things that you can do for others, from volunteering at a soup kitchen to just helping someone cross the street or shoveling their sidewalk. Doing these tasks will make you happier and feel better about yourself, as well as make the world a better place. It is always beneficial to take the focus off of yourself and think of others. Remember that something that costs you next to nothing may be a priceless gesture to the next person, and really make a meaningful difference in their life. Think your small act will not make a difference? Well – you definitely will not make a difference by doing nothing. Do something today that your future will thank you for.
It is such an easy thing to do. It may seem silly, but this simple act can take a small negative moment and turn it into a small positive moment. When you smile at the world, the world smiles back at you, and everyone feels better and more awesome than they were just a moment ago.
Here’s to having an awesome day!
