Self Help: Two Parts To Embracing Your LIfe
Embracing your life to be happy and have a healthy point-of-view about yourself, involves two parts.
The first is to build your self-confidence and self-control, and the second is to get motivated and make things happen.
Unfortunately, these skills have to be learned, they're not something that come naturally.
Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem
Some people are taught as children to create self-confidence and self-esteem. If this isn't the case in your situation, it's never too late to learn - even as an adult. You can develop these skills, at any point in your life.
The more positive changes you make and the more stuff you accomplish will naturally build your self-esteem.
Motivation To Make Things Happen
The second step to embracing your life involves motivation to make things happen. When you see yourself as successful in anything, you begin to take the steps needed to build a life you will want to embrace.
Ten Ways To Embrace Your Life and Feel Good About Yourself
Below are ten ways to embrace your life to not just exist, but to strive to reach your fullest potential:
Top 10 Ways to Embrace Life
1. Constantly Strive To Learn New Things
Your brain is a muscle and needs to be exercised, otherwise it will begin to stagnate.
Make it a goal, and a habit to learn something new each day. Then implement what you learn to improve your life.
To keep track of what you find, and analyze how you feel, start keeping a journal.
2. Always Question Everything
Whenever you are frustrated with a task, ask yourself how it fits into your life's goals for yourself.
Question how you can accomplish the task in a manner that is simpler, faster, easier, and even enjoyable.
3. Embrace Your Weaknesses
Embrace your weaknesses, and remember everyone has them.
Rather than spend all your time and energy thinking of ways to overcome your short falls, embrace them.
Make them your best friend and find ways to work with them. Use them to make you stronger, or turn them into something that is productive and positive.
4. Be Honest With Yourself
If you lie to yourself, you are only disrespecting yourself. How can you correct unhealthy patterns or habits in your life if you don't face them?
This includes, only telling yourself half truths, or omitting negative elements.
An easy way to make sure you are being honest with yourself is whether or not you make excuses. If something is wrong and we know it, we tend to start making exuces to justify it. Something that is right, needs no explanation.
5. Never Give Up On Life
Always be curious and interested about others as well as yourself.
- Never assume that anything has to stay the way it is
- Look for all the choices available behind the results you want.
- Think of why people do what they do
- Look for ways to help others
- Always remember that there is something amazing in your future
- Good things come out of bad things happening
- Problems make you stronger - learn from them
- Relish good things when they happen
- Be grateful for everything - good and bad
Think of the Future - Don't Live in the Past
6. Live In The Present And Think Of The Future
- Don't miss out on the beautiful things happening in your life right now by focusing all your thoughts and energy on the future.
- Don't let the past cloud the present, or the future
- Always stay in motion - mentally and physically
If procrastination is holding you back from moving ahead in life, these tips on how to become a person of action will get you headed in the right direction.
7. Willingly Reap What You Sow
The majority of what's is in your life is there because you put it there with your thoughts and actions.
This includes things such as your job, your home, lifestyle and people in your life.
Don't try to hide them because they never stay hidden and will always haunt you. You can't be happy when you have things in your life that don't make you happy, or if you have a guilty conscience.
If you've made bad choices:
- Face them
- Accept them
- Learn from them, but don't dwell on them
The past can't be changed, and wishing it won't make it happen. All you can do is learn from it and rectify negative results caused by your actions.
If you've wronged someone in the past, and they have passed away, you can make amends to someone else or a specific group of people in their place.
For example, if you said unkind words to your mother and didn't have the chance to apologize, make a point to go out of your way to be kind to other mothers. Volunteer at a senior citizen's home, or a women's shelter.
8. Only Stand For What You Believe In
Stand up for what you believe in, and that includes yourself.
Pick your battles - save your energy to fight for the things that are truly important in your life. Don't fight just for the sake of fighting.
10. Don't Swim Against The Tide
Concentrate your efforts on things you have control over such as, what you think about, how much you laugh, and who you hug.
Forget about things and people that bother you, because you can't control them.
