10 Steps to More Money, More Health and More Happiness

Aug 17, 2007
If you are serious about changing your life, you have to have a plan. You can use the following ten steps to help you educate your self and form such a plan.

1. Change the way you feel.

Emotions are very important in our life. When we feel down, our life seems bleak and we feel unmotivated to do anything. Good news is that you can change your mood simply by thinking of pleasant memories from the past. Our mind is incredibly powerful. We just need to be able to steer it in the direction we want it to go.

2. Change the way you think

This one is tricky. Here I am not talking about simply forcing your self to be unnaturally positive about everything. I am talking about developing an understanding of things around you, so you will be able not to be negative. Through understanding why things happen, you will be able to not get mad at unimportant things. You will simply let them go.

3. Change the way you relate to other people.

When we relate to others it is highly important to understand where they are coming from. Just think how many times you were upset at someone simply because you did not understand them or their point of view. If we will start looking for understanding first, in any situation, instead of simply reacting, we will avoid half of the problems that we have in our lives today.

4. Change the way you think about money.

Money is a sticky subject. People, from the time immemorial, had issues with money. Be it, calling money evil, or putting it on a pedestal, there was always a lot of drama surrounding this subject. The fact is though - money by it self is natural. People do good or bad things with money. But in it self money is just an energy that flows from one person to another. It also plays an incredibly important role in our lives. It is like glue that allows everything to work in this physical world. And just as glue isn't the most important part of any object, money isn't be all and end all. However, it is so important that without an idea of some sort of an exchange of currency, this world would not be able to function. So with that in mind, money is another vital skill that we need to learn, to fully participate in this worlds affairs. We need to know how to ear it, save it and spend it. All of that is very important to our existence.

5. Change the way you think about your self.

You can't affect any sort of change in your life if you do not like your self. Your self worth will influence everything you do. If you do not think you are worth it, your chances for success in anything diminish significantly.

One of the ways of increasing your self esteem would be to pay attention to any success that you achieved, however small. Learn how to forgive your self when you fail. This is a way of conditioning your mind to look at your self as a valuable being.

6. Use creativity in every aspect of your life.

One of the greatest and most fulfilling things we can do to change our life is to use our own creativity as much as possible in our daily life. Being creative is one of those things that is integral in our life yet we pay almost no conscious attention to it. If you feel that your life became a drag, all you have to do is to awaken your creativity again and it will be transformed in an instant.

One of the surest ways to awaken your creative ability is to simply use it as much as possible. You can also check out a program where you go through an intense boot-camp to do the same. Whichever way you do it however, you must do it, if you want to sky rocket your satisfaction in life.

7. Change the way you think about your body.

You probably heard many times that our bodies are our temples. Even though we often don't treat our bodies as such, it is worthwhile to make an effort in that department. You see one of the best arguments I know for this is simply that everything in life is interconnected. If we don't take care of our bodies, both from physical exercise and nutrition point of view, they simply will not function very well. And if we don't feel well physically, you can bet that we will not feel well emotionally, neither. Another point to bring up is the reverse of the previous statement - you can easily improve your out look on life by taking the time to improve how you take care of your self. It is not difficult to start feeling great if you haven't exercised in a while or you are eating really badly.

8. Change what you eat.

Nutrition, although previously mentioned, definitely deserves more emphasis. Today obesity is one of the biggest problems in North America. If we don't change that soon it will become catastrophic as the population ages. So how do we actually improve our eating habits? We educate our selves. The best tip I know in changing the way you eat is ... (drum roll) ... learn from an expert. Go see a nutritionist. Not only a good nutritionist will be able to craft an ultimate way for you to eat, but they would do it in a customized way specifically made for your body and situation.

9. Pay attention to what is happening around you.

We lead very busy lives. Work, kids - it seems that every minute of the day is taken by something important. In this constant rollercoaster it is easy to get "stuck on yourself". We sometimes loose perspective and stop seeing what is happening around us, as we are trying to deal with our own problems. If we do, it can cause innumerable problems and friction with people around us.

The best practice to avoid that is, from time to time, to become an observer. Develop the ability to view your life from the third person perspective. This may be a difficult concept to understand, but getting help in this department is easy. Most meditation traditions teach exactly this principal.

10. Give only what you would like to receive.
Give on to others what you would like for your self - is one of those ancient Christian sayings that rings true in our modern time. To bring it to the modern era, let's look at it from a business perspective. Psychology that applies to sales process also applies in many other areas of our life. In sales in order to persuade the prospect to buy, we use such techniques as mimicking, sincerity and others designed to make that person trust us. But in reality all we are doing is practicing that old principal of making others feel how we want to feel. We are creating an emotional experience for another person and they reward us with a sale. This as well as all the other principals we discussed is very simple. All we need to do is apply them one by one and we will become happier better human being.
