5 Tips to Becoming a Better You

By  | 

Each second presents an opportunity for transformation. Often trapped inside of our own prisons mentally, we allow that opportunity to pass us. As we allow mainstream mentalities to consume and control us, we lose sight of ourselves and our specific purposes while here on earth. Have you ever considered the effects of eliminating the non necessities in your life? Have you considered that there are actually areas in your life that aren’t necessities? It’s essential to take a step back and allow yourself to be a little selfish sometimes. It’s needed to reach the Nirvana we all dream of. If you’re stressed out, depressed, and you simply need refreshment, here are a few tips on how to take the next step to transform into a person that makes you happy.

Create a New Mindset

To prosper in any aspect of your life, you must be willing to alter the way you think. Open your mind to other people’s perspectives, challenge the way you process the simplest of things, even take a new route to work today. Whether it is changing the way you eat, changing your views on entrepreneurial advances, or changing the way you evaluate the world around you, you must create a mindset that challenges the norm. Creating that challenge within you provokes some of the tiniest, yet most relevant ideas and innovations that lie in your mind! You could be the next Bill Gates, but if you don’t change the way you think, you’ll never know! Your purpose is determined by the way you think. If you think “oh I guess I’ll work this 9-5 today, and for the rest of my life” then that’s what you’ll settle for. But if you think “today I’ll start a business plan to start my own entrepreneurship” that is what you’ll settle for. Which do you choose?

Build a Spiritual Foundation

We are a diversified set of beings; each individual having their own customs and beliefs, each varying from the next, but we all share the need for a solid spiritual foundation. For the sake of your sanity, create that foundation; build your strength through prayer. There’s a need for equilibrium between reality and the unknown.

Eliminate the nay-sayers

There is no possible way to remove everyone who doesn’t believe in you from this planet, but it is possible for you to remove them from the group you socialize with regularly. When you surround yourself with positivity, the result of any action you take is usually positive. But when you allow negative energies to surround you, you begin to doubt your dreams, your aspirations, and all of your set goals because your environment forces you to do so. Prosperity is reached when one realizes that for growth to occur, some things have to be released.

Follow Your Dreams

“When I grow up I want to be a model,” dreamer says. Everyone around the dreamer starts to laugh. Use your doubters as fuel. Nothing is impossible and “can’t” is merely a word created to oppress those who have drive but no push. You must learn to push yourself. Create your own American Dream. Those dreams that you have can become your reality. Believe that you can, and you will.

Make it happen NOW

There is no time like the present. If you have goals to pursue anything in your life, DO IT NOW. Planned on taking a walk today? Go! Contemplating going back to college? Go! Thinking of starting a business? Do it! Make decisions that positively mold your future. There is no greater pain than regret. Don’t victimize yourself to the prison of self pity. You have the ability to obtain anything you want; you just have to go for it! Make it happen.


My wit is my power. Writing is my life. I'm from this often stereotyped place called Mississippi. I like green eggs with my ham and pancakes without bacon. I enjoy cups of green tea and James Patterson books. I'm ultimately here to share my gift. The rest is still unwritten.
