Many of us spend our days trying to achieve some ideal version of ourselves that has little to do with who we are at our core. We do things in an attempt to attain some sort of external reward and approval only to end up feeling hurt and rejected.
Enough of that crap. The only person in life that we owe anything to is ourselves. You wake up awesome but how do you get even more awesome
? Keep reading!
1. Be Awesome At What You Do
Do your job and do it well. Find ways to learn and grow in your field because it will enrich your life. Make it a goal to not only complete your tasks but to be in service to others when you can. Making someone smile or otherwise helping them along enriches the both of you.
2. Do What You Love And Hone Your Craft
We all have lists of things we've always wanted to do. What's stopping you? Whether it is learning to speak another language or running a marathon, develop your skills until you have mastered them. You've got this.
3. Be Determined And Achieve Your Goals
Use any anger, resentment or negative feelings you have to fuel your forward movement. Wanting to be better makes you more passionate about achieving your goals. There is nothing more satisfying than being proud and happy for yourself without needing external gratification or validation.
4. Eliminate the Negatives
Look at the things in your life, your lifestyle, your relationships, and ask if they are benefitting you. If the answer is no, time to move on. If it doesn't make you feel good, you don't need to be doing it. You are the only person responsible for your happiness.
5. Stop Relying On Your Phone To Make You Happy
It is okay if you don't get any texts or notifications. It doesn't make you any less valuable. We are often so focused on our social media connections that we forget about the people right in front of us. Maybe your friends are just busy. Why not talk to your coworker or the person sitting beside you on the bus. It really isn't that hard to connect.
6. Have Fun
Stop taking yourself so seriously. Have some fun. What's the point if you aren't having fun doing what you do? And guess what, if you're having fun, people will naturally be drawn to you!
You know you're awesome. Why not be even more awesome? Do it for you and I promise you will not regret it.
