  • Facing Your Fears this Year- The Year of Growth

    Facing Your Fears in 2023: The Year of Growth

    After the disastrous year of 2020, millions of people will be desperate to do great things in 2023. And if you are determined to push yourself from now on, learning to face your fears is one of the most important steps you’ll take.

    When you regularly overcome those challenges, nothing can stop you from continued growth. While it will scare you at the start, there’s no looking back once the progress starts to occur. Here are seven of the most effective ways to make things happen in 2023 and beyond.

    #1. Get rejected

    The fear of rejection is something that naturally burdens most people’s lives. However, the 100-day rejection challenge is one that encourages you to go out and actively hear the word no. This can take many forms, such as asking companies to give you freebies or applying for a job that you aren’t qualified for. Or it can mean putting yourself in public arenas where people will critique you. 

    Either way, growing a thick skin in this way delivers great results.

    #2. Face a rational fear

    Even the most fanatical thrillseekers get a little scared when facing parachute jumps and other challenges. If you’re not a natural adrenaline junkie, though, even the big rides at your local theme park are daunting. Nobody is telling you to do one of the biggest bungee jumps in the world.  Nonetheless, putting yourself in the position to do one of the tasks that you rationally fear can work wonders.

    Aside from the magical memories, it’ll provide a future source of confidence.

    #3. Check out your health concerns

    If there’s only one step that you follow from this guide, make sure it’s this one. Bodily changes are scary, but it’s best to investigate them early. It may be nothing, or it may require professional help. Whether it’s curing a disease or managing hearing loss, early intervention is crucial for your health and happiness. You can learn more about hearing aid types, for example, to remove the fear of confusion.

    It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Even if you think it’s a minor issue, get it checked.

    #4. Free yourself 

    Accepting that a relationship isn’t working isn’t easy on anyone. Nonetheless, the benefits of doing it are plentiful in the long run. The longer you stay in the wrong relationship, the longer it will be before you find the right one. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that life is too short to be unhappy. For similar reasons, you may wish to step back from friendships that you have outgrown in recent years.

    Surrounding yourself with the right people is vital. Removing bad influences is a big part of it.

    #5. Try a new look

    Sometimes in life, the seemingly small steps have the biggest impact. Switching up your look after years of following a certain style is scary. However, when you find out the best hairstyle or color, for example, it can change your life. New clothing styles are another issue to consider while makeup applications can enter your mindset too. You don’t have to abandon your old look forever. It just adds versatility.

    In turn, the idea of presenting yourself in a different way can extend to other parts of your life.

    #6. Perform

    If you are prepared to present yourself in a different way to friends and family, you should be able to do it in public too. Whether it’s signing up for local open mic music spots, joining a comedy club, or doing a street dance is up to you. There is always a fear of what people will think. In reality, anything that the handful of critics have to say will pale compared to the self-satisfaction. You’ll be happier and more confident too.

    Not everyone has the desire to do this. But those that do can experience life-changing results.

    #7. Stand Up For Yourself

    This is probably the hardest step by far, but it can have the biggest impact. Standing up for your political, humanitarian, and cultural beliefs isn’t easy. However, being on the right side of history is a truly incredible thing. Aside from the issues that impact the world, you may want to consider personal battles. Standing up to a workplace bully or a sibling who tries to control you can be equally telling. And if you can do this, you can do anything.

    Only you can have your back until the very end. So, start doing it in 2023. You will not regret it.

    Making a Fresh Start: How To Face Big Life Changes

    Facing the future is something we all have to do at some point; as much as we can listen to people insisting on living for the “now”, there is only so long one can do that. While living in the moment is liberating, continuing to do it is simply living on borrowed time, and you can enjoy being free and liberated right up to the point where all the choices involved in that come back on you, and leave you with nowhere to go.

  • Why You Never Seem To Get What You Want

    Why You Never Seem To Get What You Want

    Do you ever go through life wondering whether you’re ever going to get what you want? With your thirtieth birthday in the rear-view mirror, it suddenly becomes clear that the clock is ticking, and life is shorter than you thought it was. You want to achieve your goals desperately, but you find yourself floundering about, like a bird stuck in oily water. 

    Getting what you want from life, though, isn’t a brute force activity. You don’t wake up one day, suddenly determined that this is the day everything is going to happen, and you’re going to make a change in your life. That’s not how it works. 

    Life-changing results begin with small building blocks – little changes you make today that compound over time to generate results for tomorrow. There are all sorts of areas in your life where small changes can make a big difference.

    For instance, if you spend many evenings in front of Netflix eating snacks, you can resolve to stop eating after dinner. Think about the positive impact this small change in habits could have on your life. You’re no longer spending money on junk food that’s eating into your budget. You’re not harming your body, you have more energy, and you’re sleeping better because you aren’t eating before you go to bed.

    The same applies to money and your career. While taking massive risks is something that some people do to achieve success, it isn’t the path the majority of financially secure people take. Instead, they make commitments early in their lives to be prudent and then watch the fruits of their labor compound over time. 

    Personal accountability is necessary too. Becoming successful is about surrounding yourself with people who will challenge you if you fall off the bandwagon. Ideally, you want to create a situation where the social costs of reneging on your commitments are high. 

    Powering through to get what you want, though, isn’t the whole story. While you can keep your motivation levels high for a few months, most people will inevitably struggle to stay on track for the long-haul. Eventually, our desires for pleasure in the here and now overcome the intention to construct a brighter future ten years from now. 

    Fighting that part of your psychology is the hardest part of getting what you want. Building a dream life is something that takes time – otherwise, it would be something everyone achieved. 

    Preparing yourself for sacrifice, therefore, is inevitable. You have to get comfortable with it – embrace it even. You have to figure out ways of enjoying less more. It’s tough, but if you can stick it out, the rewards will be yours. Eventually, your efforts will compound, and you’ll launch yourself to the stars.

    Success isn’t an all-or-nothing event. It is a runaway phenomenon. Things always start as a trickle. Then slowly, they become a stream and then a torrent. It doesn’t matter whether it is your investment portfolio or your piano-playing skills – small changes in your life lead to massive, outsized outcomes you could never imagine.
