How to Get Unstuck In Life & Out Of A Dead End Job

Getting stuck in life can happen to anyone for a number of reasons. In fact most of us have had certain times in our lives of sadness, disappoint, and regret. One common hardship is financial problems. When you’re working hard at a dead end job, and barely surviving it’s easy to feel stuck.

dead end jobIt’s hard to imagine a life of success when you don’t have an avenue to get there. Deep down there’s a competitive nature in us all to excel at whatever we do. Most of us are passionate about our work, and want the best life for ourselves, and our family.

Passion is what motivates us to work hard and take pride in doing a quality job well done regardless of pay. Sadly many will work harder at a dead end job then on their personal development. We should always be grateful for any job despite the pay, but we don’t have to get stuck there for life.

“Work hard at your job and you can make a living. Work hard on yourself and you can make a fortune”. Jim Rohn

Getting unstuck from life & work

Dead End JobGetting unstuck is a mindset. We are all creatures of habit, and we don’t like change which makes it easy to get stuck. We can’t continue doing the same old thing, and expect a different result.

When we feel there’s no other options it’s easy to become withdrawn, and depressed. Allowing these feelings to fester in our mind long, and they will sabotage our entire life. So what choice is really out there? When we feel powerless our inner potential is usually never challenged.

Several people today are overqualified and underpaid at their jobs. As a result many have lost dreams that faded long ago. Life becomes more about survival then a life of success. Remember it’s our competitive nature that drives us to success. To get unstuck it’s best to find ways to spark that inner drive with a dose of desire. Start thinking about how things can get better.

3 starting points to avoid dead end jobs

Here’s three things to do when you’re stuck in life, and feel there’s no way out of your dead end job.

  • Reclaim your passion: What is it that you loved doing in the past that you’re not doing now? There are hidden layers of treasure in our past that can remind us of our true passion in life. Reclaim it with an open mind, and some adventure. To get unstuck we need some imagination to expand our mind.
  • Develop a brilliant game plan: You need a brilliant detailed plan of action. How? Train your mind for success by finding out what motivates you, moves you, and inspires your inner drive to make things happen. Use your time wisely to broaden your knowledge in business.
  • Learn the art of making money: Every situation is different, but there are far better ways to earn money then a job. For example a business system that generates residual passive income streams whether you’re working, playing golf, or on vacation. There is an art to making money which puts the probability factor of future success in your hands.

New ways to make money in the information age

The traditional ways to make money is a broken system. There is a new philosophical business model that is generating more multi millionaires than ever before in history. The opportunities are endless for those who learn to adapt to new ideas, new innovations, and a little creativity. There is a new science to making money which can bring you lots of success in this environment. There is more information than ever to expand our learning curb, and to create any life we desire. But we are overwhelmed with information, and starved for new ways to use it. Here’s a few tips below.

Develop a laser focus: The mind is a powerful tool that can absorb, and learn new information faster when we develop a laser focus. The beginning to every dream, and ambition starts in the mind. Get focused on learning, growing, and expanding your game plan with more knowledge. This will build more self-confidence which is necessary to move forward.

Learn knowledge incrementally: Avoid information overload by taking in information incrementally. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Absorbing knowledge with a deeper understanding, and comprehension will make you very smart overtime. Knowledge in action equals power, and power equals more money, time, and freedom to do the things you want in life.

“We are drowning in information, but starving for wisdom.”

Tony Robbins

Using automated tools online to create passive income

Successful entrepreneurs know the power of automation well. Some have created millions of dollars from scratch using a small website, some online tools, and a little creativity. Others have used social media exclusively to generate impressive residual income without a website. Most of them simply plug into an automated system already in place, and duplicate those that are successful.

Growing an automated business that makes money while you sleep is just smart. Once the system is in place, it can run in motion continuously whether you fine tune it or not. From the earnings you can invest more time and energy to increase more income. This formula has revolutionized the way we do business in many industries.

Breaking free from a dead end job

There are still those uninformed souls who believe a job is the safer secure way to earn money. Even though the signs are everywhere that things are changing fast. Social perceptions cause people to work hard, but think wrong. With this frame of mind we can never break free, and make positive changes. It wasn’t until I quit my $60,000 per year job trap that I began to experience real success.

I was working in retail management six days a week for just under 20 years. Within 4 years of quitting I was making more in one day then I made in a whole week at my old job. I found new skills I didn’t know I had. These skills were small but significant. I learned to make a lot more money with less energy. This new found skill motivated a relentless determination deep down.

I learned to outsource, and use my time efficiently to make myself successful. This caused an inner shift that gave me more purpose to rise and start the day with more enthusiasm. There are far better ways to make money then a place you don’t want to be, and people you don’t want to see. The greatest feeling was the day I decided to break free from a dead end job that kept me stuck in life for years. We all have cross roads where we can rise above mediocrity, or stay stagnant getting nowhere.

Making smart job choices 

Job choices are usually made with little thought outside the social conditioned mind-set. Influence can cause people to make bad choices. For example family, and friends can unintentionally cause a disastrous job choice with lasting effects. Many are good people with good intentions, but lack insights of the new economy. They are still operating under the old system that cannot sustain itself much longer.

This is why I started out with three important things to get unstuck in life, and avoid a job trap. The mistake many of us make when making career choices is to follow dollar signs without considering the cost. The time away from the family, and level of stress could come with a heavy price. Taking a step back to think things through is wise. Reclaiming things you’re passionate about will help balance your perspective in decision making. If you’re content having a job then make sure you enjoy your life in the process..

“The biggest mistake people make in life is not doing what they enjoy”. Malcolm S. Forbes

Final Thoughts

People will stay at a job they hate for several reasons. Maybe all those years of college would be wasted, or they just can’t see themselves doing something else. Whatever the reasons putting a business in motion that generates passive income is not a bad choice. Starting a local business doing something you love maybe better than a job trap that leads to a dead end road. Either way it all comes down to our ability to think, and make smart choices that make life more enjoyable.

Getting unstuck from a bad situation is an adventure. Opportunities are endless everywhere for those who learn new ways to make money this information age. Getting out of a dead end job is a good choice. The first step is always the hardest, but it’s never too late for new beginnings.

5 Essentials to Making a Positive Change In Your Life

Usually the People in life who experience positive change follow personal development principles that have been around since the dawn of thought. The life we now have has enormous potential when we learn to utilize the resources available within us. So how can this inner potential be harnessed to create the life you truly want?

Everything around us, and within us are in constant cycles of change creating new challenges and opportunities as we evolve. However one thing that seems to never change is human nature. Our primitive instincts to survive, and thrive cannot be ignored. The one common denominator we all have despite every cultural diversity is a deep desire for wealth, health, and happiness. But for any of these things to truly happen we must make some positive changes in our lives. 

We all have areas in our life that need improvement, but the reasons vary! Maybe it’s time to start a new business, make new friends, get into a new relationship, or out of an old one. Usually it’s our intuition that lets us know when our life needs to change.

5 Essential skillsets for positive change

1 – Master Your Time Wisely

Every person on the planet has 24 hours each day to use wisely, or waste it away. We can easily find ourselves habitually wasting away time on things that don’t matter.

The choices we make everyday determines how we spend our time which determines our present state we find ourselves in. This reflects our true priorities, and measures our incentives. Time is priceless. We can either build our dreams, or waste them away on endless distractions that get us nowhere. Learn to increase your daily productivity, and eliminate time killer’s.

“Time= Life, Therefore, waste your time and waste your life, or master your time and master your life”. Alan Lakein

2 – Create a Dynamic DMO ( Daily Method Of Operation): 

The Art of Personal DevelopmentWhen you put your dreams into action your daily routines become detrimental to your success. We should know where we are, where we’re going, and how we plan to get there. Have you ever noticed how we get less done when we have no direction, organization, or plan in our life. Creating an Organized daily planner with a method of operation is a great tool that shows exactly what you want to achieve. Here’s some suggestions below.

  • Develop a dream
  • Find a mentor that has what you want
  • Duplicate what they do
  • Organize a daily method of operation
  • Avoid time killer’s

3 – Develop better people skills

Without people skills we simply don’t get far in life which makes positive change much harder. This one skill-set is what separates high income earners from low income earners in every industry. In most cases the better people skills we learn the more money we earn. At a deeper level this same skillset has an enormous affect on our marriage, family, and friends. The more energy, and effort we put into our relationships the more friends, resources, and opportunities pour back into our lives. Developing better people skills is not very complicating. Here’s 3 simple effective ways to make a positive change in the way others perceive you.

3 people skills that will make, or break you

  1. Train Yourself to Smile More – A simple smile signals to other people that you are approachable, and likeable. On the hand when you don’t smile you seem unapproachable, and unlikable. Another good thing about smiling more often is it changes your mood from …. Ok another day ….. To … Wow, I’m smiling… Today I feel fantastic! When you feel good, others feel good around you.
  2. Make Casual Eye Contact – Eye contact suggests that you’re honest, and trustworthy. When you look down, or away when people are talking with you they feel disrespected, unimportant, and ignored. To get anywhere with people they must feel respected. Learn to smile with your eyes, and nod slightly as to say ….. I like you …. You’re very interesting. Ask questions with your eyes engaged with curiosity, and interest. You can learn a lot about a person by looking into their eyes. The eye is a window to the soul. However don’t stare intently at them. This makes people feel uncomfortable. The whole idea is to connect with people at a deeper level.
  3. Learn to Listen – Developing a keen ear to listen to other people talk takes practice because it’s our nature to premeditate what we’re going to say next. As a result we’re not paying attention to what’s being said to us. Learn to listen, and you’ll be praised by others without hardly saying a word. People are much more interested in how much you care then how much you know.

I have always wanted to be a catalyst for bringing about positive change, inspiring others to choose goodness. Shari Arison

4 – Grow your life in personal development

Personal development is not about perfection, but growing despite imperfections. Applying a few simple things daily can grow your self -confidence, and success enormously. Here’s some examples below:

  • Develop a Plan of Action – Having a life plan on paper is helpful, but without action it’s worthless. The more we put off what needs to be done the easier it gets to procrastinate on our dreams.
  •  Put Goals Into Perspective – Writing down your goals is easy! The hard part is living it out once the ink dries. Knowing what you want will sharpen your clarity, but the power of change is in your mind not a piece of paper.
  • Make small changes – Small consistent changes create big results overtime. If you feel overwhelmed doing big things, try doing small things in a big way. The main thing is to stay consistent as you grow your life in personal development.

5  – Transform your power into positive change

Information without transformation is worthless. Ask yourself what really matters then move your daily activities in that direction. We can choose at any moment to either build our dreams or ignore them. To do what’s important, or waste time on things that aren’t. We can transform bad habits into good habits or do the opposite. It’s in our power to make positive changes, and once we do it can literally transform our life.

How to Know Yourself Better & Recreate Your Life Story

One of the most effective ways to go a new direction, and recreate your life story is to get to know yourself better. Creating a positive life usually only happens the moment we choose to take a hard look inside ourselves for answers. Many of us go through life being told who we are from every source imaginable, directly and indirectly. We enter this world with no concept of who we are or why were here.

Soon afterwards our life becomes a living story that reflects how we feel about ourselves, and others. We become a living open book to the outside world whether we like it or not. People read the headlines every day. Our character speaks volumes about who we are inwardly. The outside world is only a self reflection of the inward heart.

Research has shown that most of us simply don’t like ourselves not to mention realize our inner potential. We are uniquely created with unimaginable power, and potential. We can rewrite our life story at any time, and create any life we envision. Yet for many of us we never get to experience that awaking moment when everything changes for the better. To experience that driving force that motivates us inwardly to get up each day with a feeling of expectation. To gain a deeper understanding of ourselves with more clarity, and surety. Do you want more positive things to happen in your daily life? The more you get to know yourself the easier it is to have success in whatever you do.

Get to know yourself better internally

Getting to know yourself better at a deeper level is not what most average people experience. In fact quite opposite. Without a deeper understanding of who you are it’s easy to lose sight of your intention, purpose, and direction. To accept mediocrity without any expectation that things can get better. Under this frame of mind we can easily find ourselves feeling out of place in most social circles unable to relate, or connect with other people.


Please receive my free eBook to you personally  the Art of Personal Development which shares the habits, routines, and strategies of highly successful people. The tips & techniques illustrated can literally change your life. Read my personal story on the about page.

When you get to know yourself better internally it will save you a lifetime of disappointments.  Everything you think, know, and believe is a mirrored reflection of how you think about yourself. We are all curious how people see us, and it can be both healthy, and unhealthy. If you don’t like your life story then change it. How? Despite your circumstance it’s never too late to start over, and recreate your life story.  

How outside influence can make you better

Outside influence is usually not the best place to find out more about ourselves, or even what others might think about us, but we do need a circle of friends who pull no punches. They tell us exactly what we don’t want to hear. These are generally those who know us best, and see through our charm, our weakness, or anything other flaws we may have with a critical eye. These people are actually necessary because they help sharpen our people skills, but they don’t define us, or truly know us deep down inwardly. Only you have the power to truly get to know yourself better, and the more you do, the more success you’ll gain in life.

know yourself better

know yourself better by defining who you are

Whenever you know yourself better inwardly outside noise will have less impact on your emotional state. Before accepting constructive criticism as fact, always consider the source. For example: is this coming from coworkers who don’t know you personally, or from family and friends who care with good intentions, but don’t understand a new direction you’re taking. This is why it’s so important to know yourself better intimately so you’re not swayed by empty words that mislead, or misrepresent who you are as a person. Most of us know exactly what that feels like.

What most people think about you

Believe me ….. what most people think about you is not near as important as what you think about yourself. Make it a point to know your self-identity, and be wise enough to accept constructive criticism even if you feel it’s unfair. But there is a limit to this. Only you have the capacity to know your identity better than anyone else.

Imagine if your whole life experience was what others thought about you? Yet for many people this is exactly what leads to a confused life with no purpose, or direction. Knowing your identity will give you inner strength, and insight to every challenge you’ll ever face.

“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates. Basically we are all looking for someone who knows who we are and will break it to us gently”. Robert Brault.

Developing a deeper understanding of yourself

Developing a deeper understanding of yourself is critical in the growing stages of defining yourself, and creating a better life. Whenever you define who you are others around may not always like it, or accept it. Living in your own skin will cause a shift in the way others perceive and treat you, especially those who have dominated over you in the past. It will be much harder to be controlled when you are defined, and confident.

The more in tune you are inwardly the less outer influence will have dominion over your life. At this point your life story is now being shaped but so is your wisdom. Early influences can have lasting effects, but a definite purpose, with determination can overcome any challenge, and shape our destiny.

Knowing your inner call

We must learn to listen to that inner call that vibrates truth in every cell of our body. That gut feeling that assures us we’re doing the right thing regardless of how it may seem to the outside world. It’s easy to define ourselves when everything feels perfect, but what about when it’s not? What about when everything around us is literally falling apart? That’s when you’re actually defining who you are, and building strength…. It’s like your character is being crushed, pressurized like a diamond before its beauty is revealed. This is the moment when life takes on a whole new shape, as you endeavor to get to know yourself better with a deeper level of understanding.

Living life on purpose

Don’t be tossed like a leaf in the wind without reason and purpose. If you spend your life trying to please everybody you’ll never experience happiness, or have the capacity to define yourself as a human being.

When you look inside yourself what do you see? Most people in general don’t know who they are themselves, so can they tell you who you are? Only you can answer that. There are several problems when you look to other people for an opinion about yourself. We live in a materialistic world, and people naturally try to define you based on your possessions, and outward appearance. (Examples)

  • Your career: the first thing many people want to know about you is your business, or career. Basically how much your worth.
  • Your appearance: Try putting on some old wrinkled clothes, and going into public to see if people treat you the same.
  • Where you live: Unfortunately people may determine your worth by where you live.
  • The car you drive: if you’re driving an old beat up car you’re probably not going to be very popular.
  • Your popularity: Many of us are defined in social circles by how popular we are.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does put things into perspective.

Recreate your life story

Basically we are conditioned to keep up with the Jones. Ask yourself this?Are you some kind of robotic cookie cutter humanoid living on a planet, or created by God with unique attributes, and extraordinary potential. I believe the latter is much more accurate. And his love for each of us has no end. You can recreate your story, and reclaim your life passion with confidence.

No person on earth has the power, or insight to define who you are. The pen that writes your story is in your own hand, and knowing who holds it may take a lifetime. These are only the basics to get to know yourself better, and rewrite your legacy, your life story, and your ultimate destiny.

Final thoughts

Hopefully these tips & techniques will add value on your personal journey toward a better life. We should always live life on purpose, and find out what puts energy in our bones. This is what makes you get up each day excited to be alive. Start your day with purpose, and intention in everything you do. Develop a dream, and everything around you will have new meaning.

Doing this will develop more confidence as you grow, and get to know yourself better. Soon you’ll be well on your way to living a dream with intention, purpose, and direction as your life story unfolds.

Simple Daily Habits For A Better Life

Sometimes it’s the simple daily habits that can either improve our life, or make it much harder. Below are some ideas to make life a little easier, and enjoyable, while you move toward that big dream, and create a better life for yourself.

Daily Habits to Make Life Simple

  • Get present. Studies find the best way to stay cheerful is to stay centered in the present—even when it’s not all that pleasant. In contrast, a wandering mind and daydreaming can bring people down. The best way to re-center? Sit quietly for a few minutes and try some deep, calming breaths. Focus on the breath moving in and out of the body and gently guide attention back to the breath if the mind starts to wander.
  • Count your blessings. Think about or write down what you’re thankful for. Even if there’s not time to write down everything,expressing gratitude creates an instant mood boost.
  • Snuggle up. Climbing under a soft blanket for a few minutes might make us more relaxed and flexible. Researchers found there’s something about contact with soft things that just makes us feel better.
  • Do something nice for somebody else. Yep, being nice can help us feel nicer. Small actions—holding the door for the person behind you, sending a quick love text to a partner or friend, or donating ten bucks to a favorite charity—count, so there’s no excuse not to get your nice on.
  • Listen to a happy song. It’s quick; it’s easy; it’s an instant mood-lifter. Sing along (perfect pitch not required) for extra benefit.
  • Go somewhere quiet. Even if it’s just the office bathroom, taking a few minutes to sit in a quiet space with no external stimulation can do wonders for a bad mood.
  • Cuddle. Physical touch can decrease stress, make us feel happier, and even improve our health. For the single folks among us, don’t fret: Even a quick hug with a friend or acquaintance can yield benefits.
  • Hang out with a pet. Cuddling, playing, or just chillin’ with Fido can help us feel happier and less stressed .
  • Achieve a goal. Even small successes can have big mood payoffs. Toss a crumpled ball of paper into the trash can Michael Jordan style, win a game of Solitaire, pick up a pencil off the floor using only your toes—in moments you’ll be basking in the glory of accomplishment.
  • Give yourself a massage. A quick rubdown (focus on the neck, shoulders, lower back, and feet) can improve mood and release stress.
  • Meditate. Meditation is a quick, effective way to chill out and improve our outlook, and it might even make us smarter . Just a few minutes of sitting quietly, focusing on the breath, and maybe chanting a few Oms (silently or out loud) can snap us out of a funk.
  • Laugh. Laughter can cheer us up and decrease anxiety—and the best news is it doesn’t have to be “genuine” to have a positive effect. So even when it seems like there’s absolutely nothing funny in all of this world, busting out a big guffaw might just change your mind . Need help getting started? Check out the latest viral youtube videos, the Greatest tumblr, or anything said by Zack Galifianakis.
  • Do something new. We know, you’ve only got a few minutes; it’s not like you can change careers or fly to Iceland. The good news is even adding something small to a normal routine can brighten up a day. Order a chai if you normally drink coffee, take a different route to the bathroom at work, wear something you would normally never wear.
  • Dress up. Speaking of clothing: Buying new garb can amp up mood, but a person doesn’t have to drop cash to reap clothes’ benefits. Wearing the color red can boost confidence and self-esteem—which might just be the pick-me-up you were looking for.
  • Notice small miracles. Cultivating positivity and a sense of wonder can build positive outlook . Feeling stuck? Look around for small wonders (a butterfly, an act of kindness, something beautiful) or check out sites like Happy News, Good News Network, and Daily Good for a happier outlook on the world.

 

These are only a few daily habits that can help enhance your mood, and provide a better life. The point is not to try doing all of them in one day, but do some of them in your daily routine. I think they will make a big difference in your overall well-being. They can also help bring more structure, mental clarity, and balance with new things, new ideas, and new daily habits. This is the entire 34-ways to bust a bad mood in ten-minutes, or less.

7 More Daily Habits to Improve Your Mood

Below is 7 simple daily habits to help increase happiness, improve your mood, and ultimately bring a better life.

1. Munch on nuts.
For a mood-lifting snack, stash walnuts in your desk drawer. Or sneak salmon into your salad for lunch. They’re both packed with omega-3 fats, which may make people less prone to depression, and easier to get along with, say researchers from the University of Pittsburgh. They measured the blood levels of omega-3 fats (a reliable indicator of consumption) of 106 healthy adults and gave them psychological tests. Those with the highest omega-3 blood levels scored 49 to 58% better on the tests than those with the lowest blood levels.

2. Flip through old photos.

When you’re feeling down, break out your kids’ baby albums or pics from your favorite vacation. It may actually make you feel happier than a square of Godiva chocolate would. That’s what researchers at the United Kingdom’s Open University found after they examined how much people’s moods rose after eating a chocolate snack, sipping an alcoholic drink, watching TV, listening to music, or looking at personal photos. The music and chocolate left most people’s moods unchanged; alcohol and TV gave a slight lift (1%), but viewing pictures made people feel 11% better. To keep your spirits high at work, upload your favorite pics to your computer and set them as a rotating screensaver. Or splurge on a frame that flips through digital photos.

3. Inhale a calming scent.
Fill your office with a fragrant candle or diffuser to calm down during a deadline-packed day. In an Austrian study, researchers wafted the smell of oranges before some participants and lavender before others. The two groups felt less anxious, more positive, and calmer when compared with participants who were exposed no fragrance at all. Add a few drops of either oil to a room diffuser (we like the Scentball, available at amazon.com) and use in your office on stressful days.

4. Open your shades.
To feel happier in seconds, let the sunlight stream in when you first wake up. One study of more than 450 women found that those who got the most light, particularly in the morning, reported better moods and sleep. Got more time? Eat breakfast near a window that gets plenty of daylight, and put exercise equipment near a bright view. Some researchers speculate that combining exercise with morning light exposure may amplify light’s beneficial effects on mood, sleep, and alertness, says Anthony Levitt, MD, a University of Toronto light researcher.

5. Walk around the block.
If you work in a windowless office, make sure you step out to see the sun a few times throughout the day. “Studies show that people who get more light exposure during the day have fewer sleep problems and less depression, and evidence suggests that light can keep you alert and productive,” says Daniel Kripke, MD, a University of California, San Diego, light and sleep expert.

If you have more time, a longer bout of exercise may also spark a smile. “Lots of people skip working out when their moods aren’t ideal because they don’t have the mental energy to switch gears,” says mental health and exercise expert Jack Raglin, PhD, of Indiana University. “But the trick lies in finding the right workout to match the mood you’re in.” When you’re battling blues, try something low-key and mindless. “Studies have shown that even mild exercise, about 40% of your max heart rate, can lift your mood,” says Raglin. “So if you’re not up for the usual high-energy stuff, do some leisure activity you enjoy, such as digging in your garden or walking in a park. View it as mental recreation, not exercise.” If you’re angry, pick something that makes you focus. “As tempting as it may be, skip the kickboxing,” Raglin advises. “You can’t punch away anger. Instead, do something that involves your mind and keeps you from focusing and ruminating on what has you angry. Play racquetball, or take an aerobics class you’ve never tried. Learning new moves will free your mind from what’s upsetting you.”

6. Clear away clutter.

Disorganized heaps of paper in your cube or on the kitchen counter can make you anxious. For some, “clutter is a reminder of things that should be getting done but aren’t,” says Elaine Aron, PhD, author of The Highly Sensitive Person. “It can make you feel like a failure.” For a quick fix, straighten up a few surfaces in your office or in the areas of the house where you spend the most time. “It’s when every bit of space is messy that it’s most disturbing,” says Aron. Don’t bother to organize unless you have a chunk of time. Instead, arrange papers, books, and other detritus of daily living in neat piles or store them in baskets. “Just the illusion of order is enough to ease the mind,” she says.

7. Think fast.
Turn your thoughts into a race—it can lift the blues in minutes, says Princeton University psychologist Emily Pronin, PhD. For example, when your mother-in-law is driving you crazy, give yourself 30 seconds to make a list of all the ways she’s been helpful to you in the past—you’ll feel better fast. (If nothing nice comes to mind, quickly jot down other ways she bugs you; speed thinking negative thoughts can still improve your mood, Pronin found.) Researchers believe that rapid thinking may release feel-good brain chemicals—or it could just be a helpful distraction.  Here’s 2 minutes to a happier you.

Final Thoughts

All of these tips & tricks are an excellent way to bring more happiness, and improve your life. Hopefully some of these daily habits will help organize, and put some structure into your projects, and daily tasks. The best ways to avoid to0 much stress, and overload is to start out small. After all it’s the small things we do everyday that mold a better life.

7 Ways to Condition Your Life For Success

Success does not usually happen by chance, or with some random string of luck. We must take certain steps that condition us for more abundance. Without a plan we can easily find ourselves stuck in life. The financial system is broke, and those who don’t adapt to news ways of making money will probably never experience financial success.

The irony is that it’s not doom, and gloom for those who learn. Some of us have lost our desire to win in life. That’s not even the worst part. When we begin to lower our expectations, and settle for a life of mediocrity we never discover our full potential. This happens more often than we like to admit.

Yet deep down most of us still want to achieve more in our lives. That small inner voice from within speaks volumes to the core of our being saying ……What are you doing with your life…..  The voice of truth who reminds us who we are, and what we are capable of. And the truth is that your future can be brighter than you ever imagined possible. Here’s 7 ways that can help condition your life for success.

1. Avoid information overload

Most of the information we gather today is useless. In fact you must avoid information overload at all cost if you’re going to keep your sanity. There are two kinds of knowledge. One that is useful, and another that is useless.

Learn to sift through what’s important, and spit out what’s not. In other words keep your eye on the big picture without getting bogged down with minor details. Take some time out …… Step back….. And think about what you want to achieve. Then start moving in that direction one step at a time.

“We are drowning in information, but starving for wisdom.” Tony Robbins

2. Get organized

When we remove the clutter in our life we think better, feel better, and perform better. Putting more organization into our daily lives helps condition us for success. The more organized we are the more self-confident we become. As our confidence grows our energy levels increase.

Living organized is not just about cleaning everything around you. You probably know people who can only keep a clean house a few hours before everything’s a mess again. Why? Because organization is a lifestyle.

If we don’t clean up as we go along we accumulate a mess. We should always make it a point to live our life in a clean environment. More organization improves our mood, and our emotional state. It also saves time, and makes our lives much more productive.

For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned. Benjamin Franklin

3. Stop dwelling on the past

The only power we have is NOW. We can decide at any moment that our story is not going to end like this. Dwelling on the past drains your energy, and keeps you in a powerless state. Successful people know that our emotions drive everything.

When we dwell on the past our brain is less resourceful. We have less ability to make clear decisions. For successful better results we must live in the moment. Life is a miracle in motion. The past is gone, and the future is yet to come. The only power we have to make positive changes is now. When you do it will energize your projects, your business, your relationships, and your entire life.

The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power. Unknown

4. Go a new direction

We are taught to never give up, or quit something we started, but sometimes continuing down the same path is not smart. Over time it usually becomes more, and more clear when we’re going the wrong direction. Never allow anyone to try, and mold you into something you’re not. It will only lead to a life of misery.

Decide exactly what you want your life to look like then put one foot in front of the other to make it happen. One simple step forward may be just enough to put in motion a better life with new beginnings, and a new direction.

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.  Jimmy Dean

5. Develop a vision for complete success

Visualize yourself having complete success. When a vision is born inside us it produces hope, and hope produces desire, and desire produces a dream, and a dream produces energy, and energy produces action, and action produces results. It’s what makes dreams come true.

To every action there’s a reaction in the universe, Without a vision our life becomes repetitious, and meaningless with nothing to hope for. We are not created to live in a defeated state of mindlessness. We are designed to win. And once we know what’s important we can start developing a vision for success.

Whatever that idea lifestyle looks like, we have to take action and set some goals in place to make it a reality. To have complete success visualize in detail your vision then act on it at once.

Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build. Robert Collier

6. Condition your life for positive change

Everything around us is constantly changing including our mind, body, likes, dislikes, and habits. All these and more… are in cycles of change. For example our family, friends, relationships, and careers are all changing around us creating new challenges and opportunities as we evolve and grow together.

We all have unique areas to change in life, but the reasons vary! For many of us it’s time to start a new business, make new friends, get into a new relationship, or out of an old one. Usually it’s your intuition that lets you know when you need to condition your life for success, or positive change.

Since we cannot stop things from changing we should learn to embrace it. We should become more adaptive, flexible, and resourceful. After all change is a part of life so since we can’t change it we should embrace it, let it go, and let whatever happens happen.

Change your thoughts and you change your world. Norman Vincent Peale

7. Smell the coffee along the way

Science has proven that when we don’t take time out in life we become less productive, more susceptible to depression, anxiety, and illnesses. We simply need to stop, and smell the coffee along the way. Don’t get so preoccupied that you lose sight of who you are, and what that dream looks like in your life.

Whenever we lose sight of why we do what we do it’s probably time to make changes. Or if we get so preoccupied in our work that we lose interest in people some changes are needed.

Every moment of life is a gift from God, and if we never enjoy small moments, we lose sight of the most important things that life has to offer. We can literally become so robotic, and repetitious that we lose our humanity.

Yes we need to work hard to move us toward our dreams, but let us never forget why we’re doing it in the first place. All seven of these tips, and techniques will help condition your life for success in everything you do.

We want to do a lot of stuff; we’re not in great shape. We didn’t get a good night’s sleep. We’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup. Jerry Seinfeld

The Art of A Million Dollar Business Plan

One of the fastest ways to turn a small business into a multi million dollar business is with a culture of people who are united for the same cause. But how can you build such a business team? It takes a lot of money, time, and energy, not to mention experience right? That sounds logical, but you may be surprised at how many million dollar businesses started with very little investment.

As a business owner myself,  I have launched several low investment start-up businesses that have made me a fortune, and have lost money on businesses that cost more to run than worth. One big reason for my success or failure in any business is how well I build my business team.

It is a crucial part of ensuring success within the business framework, where all decisions, ideas, and other processes are formed and implemented. There are several steps that are necessary before you can build a million dollar business. Here are some tips & tricks to help build an unstoppable multi million dollar business that can make lots of money.

Building a million dollar business

million dollar businessThe idea business is to create value that customers are willing to pay for, and make lots of money in the process. Before you can build such a dynamic business you need a solid plan. This plan should include both short and long-term scenarios. For instance a map that details where you want to start, and where you see the company in the future. Here your vision is outlined to make the journey easier and more complete when it’s time to take action.

All this information will help decide how and what course your business needs in order to achieve the success intended. It also contributes to challenges you’ll most likely face along the way. The more detail the better. But don’t make things to complicating.

Keep it simple. Don’t get to caught up in the small stuff. You can eventually outsource, or hire people to do that for you. Think big, and always stay focused on what matters most, and you’ll be well on your way to building a multi million dollar business that can make you a ton of money.

 Having a solid plan

million dollar businessWhether you own several businesses, or never owned a business in your life, a solid business plan will increase your chances of success.  Before you invest your time, money, and energy into any business find out the basics. This can save you a lifetime of frustration simply by doing some math to see if it’s worth your efforts.

  • How profitable is the market? Stay away from a business that has little profitability.
  • How much money realistically to get started? If this is your first time going in business choose a business with low investment start-ups.
  • How much risk is involved? If you have to sell the farm to get started it’s probably way to risky.
  • Find out how much competition you will have: Try to have a small niche that is unique so it distinguishes you from your competition. It’s not always a negative to have a competitive market, but advertising campaigns will cost more.

The more organized, and detailed your business plan is, the easier it will be to engage talented prospects to come on board with your business.

Skill-sets for a million dollar business

Obviously the more you develop your skill-sets as a leader, the more likely you will have a million dollar business. Your character, moral campus, and determination will also be a huge success factor. Here are some examples below:

  • Choose the right people: Choosing the right people for your business team is a crucial skill-set that you need to master. Lets face it, you don’t want just anyone to represent your company. You need people who are trainable, attentive, and who pay close attention to detail. They also need to be honest, and likable.
  • Develop communication skills:  Developing effective communication skills is perhaps what will either make, or break your business. Creating a clear and concise outline should not be information overload. Try to delegate with simplicity regardless of how complex the information may be. Boring someone with unnecessary information is not going to motivate them to make you money. Use power points when you are trying to give the necessary information they need to make your business successful.
  • Provide the right training & tools: Providing the necessary training and tools is one way of addressing the ever-changing and evolving business environment of today. Your work force should have the lasted tools or material so they can do their job effectively. To motivate your business team they need to be equipped to face challenges, and stay focused on success.

The best opportunities for business

My own personal advice is to find the best business opportunity already in place, so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Usually in such a scenario you can find business teams who are highly trained that will help you build your business. This method has proven over the years to make people very rich. As I mentioned earlier, you may be surprised at how many million dollar businesses started out with very little money. These opportunities were not as available in the past.
