- Ask questions. If you don’t understand, ask for someone to clarify. If you don’t know, learn. Asking questions is absolutely necessary for growth and development.
- Read as much Coelho as you can get your hands on. After reading The Alchemist months ago, I’ve finally fed my reading bug by continuing on my Coelho journey. I started with The Witch of Portobello (which was incredible and I did a small reading from HERE), then moved onto The Devil and Miss Prym (also amazing), and Friday I picked up The Pilgrimage.
- Battle your demons. If you feel lazy this week, get up off your ass and do something. If you feel insecure or unconfident, look in the mirror and reassure yourself how awesome you are. If you are faced with a demon, no matter how big or small, tackle them with all your might and overcome them. You’re stronger than you think you are.
- “You can’t talk yourself out of problems you behave yourself into.” / Stephen Covey. Don’t repeat bad behaviors and make excuses for why you do them. Actions speak louder than words.
- Remind yourself that you’re sitting in the driver’s seat of your life and yours only. Often we waste time and energy judging or ridiculing how others are living, when that should be the least of your concerns (unless, of course, that person is poorly influencing your life).
- Practice faith. Whether or not you believe in a God or higher power. Whether you are religious or spiritual. Believe in endless possibilities. Believe in ghosts, UFO’s or parallel dimensions. Believe in the unbelievable. Believe in yourself.
- Reanalyze negative forces as blessing in disguise. When something unfavorable happens, ask yourself what you could learn from the situation. The bus you just missed could have change your fate completely. The screaming child at the supermarket could be a friendly reminder to pick up birth control, or perhaps they are a lesson in patience or tolerance. Dissect your “bad” days and find the good in them.
