A few weeks ago we had reviewed some powerful steps to help us all achieve a healthy and happy state of mind!
Top 3 tips that can help you live life with intentionality
1. Give up on negative self-talk. We’ve said it before, everyone talks to themselves, even though we don’t want to admit it. The truth is not every thought that crosses our mind is healthy or beneficial and we have to stop the ones that are destroying us by eliminating them.
2. Stop complaining! There are unlikeable people, traffic jams, financial concerns, and many other situations that will always exist. Complaining just sucks the life out of you . It’s not those situations that trigger sadness or worry or frustration, it is how you choose to respond to each. Once again, giving up negative self-talk and its cousin, complaining, are the first steps to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Or the silver lining behind the next rainbow.
3. Give up Criticism. Criticism is only one’s way of attempting to keep others down in a poor attempt to raise your own self worth. It’s a pitiful characteristic and one that turns others off. Everyone wants to succeed. Everyone wants a chance at their dreams. Not everyone goes about it the same way…so be it. Expend your energy on making your choices the best ones, instead of focusing on others’ apparent failure or indiscretions.
