8 Life Reminders That Will Make You Rethink Your Priorities

10:23 PM

As time passes by, our priorities are changing some gradually, some drastically. And since I'll be turning 30 few years from now, reevaluating my priorities in life is a must. Take a moment to pause and remember who you truly are. Take the time to reflect on the things that have real and lasting meaning in your life. Besides, rethinking and/or reworking our priorities would never harm us.

1. Do little things with great love. The quality of your life in the long run directly depends upon how you set and respect your priorities today. By saying no to more things that sound slightly “exciting,” you get to say yes to more of what’s truly important. 

2. Every moment gives you a new beginning and a new ending. Sometimes life will not go as you planned.  When this happens, breathe and remember that life’s richness often comes from its unpredictability.   Be thankful to start from where you are now.  Wishing for a different past will only waste your present.

3.
Be your hero, not your victim. As long as you think that the cause of your problem is “out there” somewhere else as long as you think that someone or something else is responsible for your aches and pains your situation is hopeless.  It means that you are forever in the victim role that you’re suffering even in paradise.

4. We are often our own worst enemies  and the biggest challenges we face are our own negative thoughts and habits, and our refusal to admit what’s not working well.  Recognizing what’s NOT working in your life can be painful, yet it’s the key to shaping the life you want.  By eliminating what’s not working, you give yourself the space to refocus your attention on what IS working, and exploit it to the best of your ability.
 
5. The mind is your battleground.  It’s the place where the greatest conflict resides.  It’s where half of the things you thought were going to happen, never did happen.  But if you allow these thoughts to dwell in your mind, they will succeed in robbing you of peace, joy, and ultimately your life. You are what you think and you can’t change anything if you can’t change your thinking.  A beautiful day, and thus a beautiful life, always begins with a beautiful mindset.  

6. Frustration and stress come from the way you respond, not the way life is.  Adjust your attitude, and the frustration and stress is gone. Even if you have a good reason to be angry and resentful, don’t.  Channel your energy into thoughts and actions that actually benefit your life.  

7. Being positive doesn’t mean ignoring the negative.  Being positive means overcoming the negative.  There’s a big difference between the two.  Regardless of what happens, the situation does not determine your response – YOU determine your response.  And it never pays to get discouraged.  Taking the next step and making positivity a way of life will help you restore your faith in yourself.  Work through the challenges so you can gradually turn them into opportunities and blessings.
 
8. You can’t lift 1,000 pounds all at once, but you can easily lift one pound 1,000 times. In repetition, your little actions have great power.  You become highly skilled at whatever you do again and again. Remember the last six letters in the word “attraction” are “action.”  If you want to attract positive changes into your life, you can’t only work on your internal world (your knowledge) – you must also take action (do something with your knowledge).
