40 Life SECRETS + TIP | 11-20




11. Think positive thoughts. When you find yourself thinking a negative thought, stop it immediately by any means necessary. Slap yourself in the face, yell something positive at the top of your lungs or jump up and down. Do whatever it takes to get back to a positive mindset as such is essential for continual happiness and success.

12. Read more. No explanation needed.

13. Get in the sun. Superman was completely re-energised when he flew out to space and soaked in some rays and you can do the same right outside your front door. The sun feels amazing: your entire body will be coursing with warmth and life ~ just remember your SPF.

14. Help others. Here's a plethora of reasons why this is a MUST 
- Helping people has a ripple effect. If you help someone they will feel more obliged to help someone else, and so on. Pay it forward. 
- You grow by giving and helping others. It can change you in ways you never expected. 
- Your relationship with that person will become stronger. 
- It’s the most fulfilling thing you can do on this planet. It not only feels amazing physically, you also feel like a good person. 
- You might be able to call in a favour later when you need some help. 
- Karma {if you believe in it}.
- Because there are more people in this world than just you.

15. Set aside a specific time to worry each day. Ponder all of your problems and anxieties during that time so that they will not distract you during work or moments of pleasure. This way you can be extremely efficient with your time and avoid focusing on negative things as much as possible. If you get all of your worry out of the way and have the mental fortitude to keep from reverting back to them, you will be much happier on the daily.

16. Be honest at all times. Lies lead to nothing but trouble. Being known as trustworthy is an excellent trait to maintain and essential to having integrity.

17. Figure out what your goals and dreams are. So many people wander aimlessly through life simply go for whatever small thing they want moment by moment. Instead, decide what your perfect life consists of and begin to put the steps in motion to reach that place. The most satisfying thing in the world is overcoming a challenge and reaching a goal. We are the happiest when we are growing and working towards something better.

18. Start your day off right. Wake up and set aside an hour for personal development activities {meditation, self-introspection, observing nature, etc.} Do the things that make you feel blissful, optimistic and empowered so that you can set a positive tone for your day. Once you start doing this, your days will be more enjoyable and fulfilling. Today is going to be the best day of your life.

19. Travel. Anyone who has ever gone anywhere will tell you that traveling is one of the most exciting and life-changing activities that you can do. Observing a different culture will expand your mind while making you further appreciate the life you already live. This goes back to becoming an explorer: this world is your jungle so go explore! Who knows, maybe you’ll find a place you love so much that you decide to move. Imagine the positive repercussions a new environment could have on your life.

20. Learn to be unaffected by the words of others. Most people get very upset when they are called negative names by others, but there is a simple trick to overcoming this. Here it is: If you were called you a fire hydrant, would you be upset? Of course not. Obviously you are not a fire hydrant, you are a human being. The same concept applies to when someone calls you something that you know you are not. They are foolish for saying such things, so why would you react with such anger? The only exception is when someone calls you something that is true! In this case, you should thank them for alerting you to a weakness, one that you can now work on changing.
