7 Tips to Recreate Your Life In 3 Months and Change Your Destiny

Do you feel disappointed by a lack of achievement in your life? If so, it is time to start looking at your daily habits and choices, and start working on it. Most people are unable to do anything great in life not because they don’t have the talent for it, but because their behavior and mindset tend to pull them back into an average existence. 

Today, we will look at a few tips which can help you overcome these negative tendencies while developing new habits that will recreate your life in as little as three months. 

1. Sleep and Wake Up Early

7 Tips to Recreate Your Life In 3 Months and Change Your Destiny

The first habit you have to cultivate is to sleep and wake up early. Unfortunately, today’s culture is more focused on sleeping late and rising early, which essentially means that you won’t get a good enough sleep that your body demands. A few others sleep and wake up late, which is even worse. In order to be successful, you have to make it a habit to wake up early, preferably around 5:30 AM to 6 AM in the morning. This gives you a head start and you can accomplish a lot by 9am, which is when most people start their day.

Anything later than that is not recommended. You can use the initial hours for exercise, meditation, writing, and planning, that will help you remain active and focused all day long. You will also be in a better mood and will feel less irritated, which will result in better decisions at work or in personal life.

2. Set Goals

Just as driving your car without knowing the right destination only leads to waste of time and fuel, living your life without knowing exactly what you want to achieve will only result in wasting time and energy. Time is precious – you may believe you have enough especially if you’re young; but in fact, you do not. If you want to change your destiny, you must be sure of two things – where you currently are, and where you want to be. 

Knowing your current position in all honesty will help you understand your capabilities, potentials, and limitations. And once you understand them, you can set up specific goals as to the things you wish to achieve. For example, when you analyze yourself, you might realize that you are very good at presenting ideas and concepts. As such, you may come up with an idea of starting a YouTube channel where you can teach viewers about some cool concepts. Writing down your goals gives you the extra motivation to go after them.

3. Schedule Tasks

If you have a habit of taking up a bunch of tasks and finishing them up randomly as you wish, then you should start developing a more systematic approach. Try to schedule your tasks and finish them based on priority. This will not only help save time, but you can also use the extra time for other constructive purposes. 

For example, suppose that you have to finish up a work report by the weekend. But in the meantime, you also want to binge watch your favorite TV show and also visit the nearby trade fair. Now, of all these three activities, finishing the work report is of paramount importance. So, make sure to complete it first. 

Then, you can visit the fair since it might be there only for a few more days. Finally, you can watch the show if you have any time left. Try to develop this habit of categorizing and scheduling tasks, and you will soon see that your personal and professional life becomes much easier.

4. Be in Good Company

Start developing a wide range of friendships which can benefit you mentally and psychologically. The psychological development of a person is not only affected by how they think but also by how the people they associate with think. Someone who is constantly in a group where everyone indulges in partying and spends less time studying is very likely to adopt similar behaviors. 

Likewise, someone whose peers give importance to studying over partying will also see their own drive to study increase. After all, it is normal for people to want to do exactly what their friends do. Even in older ages. And this is why the company you keep is important. Try to spend time with people who are ambitious, driven, and are dreamers who aim to do something productive with their lives. Over time, you will see that your drive to achieve something will also be higher.

5. Acquire Knowledge

7 Tips to Recreate Your Life In 3 Months and Change Your Destiny

One of the cornerstones of success is the acquisition of knowledge. Look at every successful person in the world, and you will see that they have a large knowledge base about many things and a thirst for more. Their knowledge is not just limited to a particular field of expertise, but stretches into other areas as well. 

Acquiring knowledge helps broaden your viewpoint of the world, making you think differently. So, start learning about new things from today onwards. Look at subject matters that are hot today and are expected to trend in the future, and begin learning as much as you can about it.

6. Be More Social

If you are the type of person who feels comfortable being by yourself rather than with others, then you need to work on your social skills. Go out and start interacting with people more. Until you do this, your perception of the world will remain skewed and will remain colored by your prejudices. 

Inevitably, such a person will have a hard time trying to progress in life since people generally tend to associate with those who have a wide social circle than those who keep to themselves. And this will hurt your growth prospects, both at a personal and professional level.

7. Finances

7 Tips to Recreate Your Life In 3 Months and Change Your Destiny

Finally, be sure to manage your finances in a way that you are never in debt. When you get into debt, your entire life will revolve around paying off the debts, which essentially will block you from exploring life fully. So, always create a monthly budget as to how much money you can afford to spend, and make sure you keep your monthly expenses within those limitations. 

And if you do have debt, then create a plan on how to pay it off in full while restraining yourself from taking on any additional debt. When you eventually become debt-free, you will realize that your life changes – you will have the confidence to try out new things.

Final Thoughts

Changing your destiny or the direction that your life is heading is completely in your hands. When you decide to take the wheels of your life, you make changes for a smooth ride, and these changes are what help you recreate your life the way you want it to be.

The Impact of Deep Melody

Published

melody

Music is a form of art that has the power to touch your soul. Through this universal language, countless emotions have been depicted over the ages. The human mind grasps music differently under different circumstances. Even the same tune can be interpreted variedly from person to person. 

From Beethoven to Bach, Mozart to Yo Yo Ma, Einaudi to Mischka, the depth of soulful music is beyond the power of perception. The music created by these artists resonates deep within our souls through every note, every beat. 

If you close your eyes and listen to Yo Yo Ma’s rendition of the Prelude, irrespective of your mood, you will get absorbed into a moment of tranquil hard to describe in words. Or take, for example, Einaudi’s composition called “Waterways,” the sense of a pristine aura that lasts long after he finishes the piece, is simply beautiful.

Every note, chord, and tune affects your brain in a way you can’t even imagine. So here, we will try to explore some of the powers of music and the impacts of deep melodies.

Memory 

Since the 20th century numerous studies have been conducted to research the power of music over memory functioning of the human brain. Certain music can take your mind back decades in an instant. 

In a study conducted with dementia patients, it was found that music improves general well being, mood, orientation, and episodic memory recalls. It was shown to have an overall positive effect on life.

Stress Relief

Music can lower the cortisol levels in your body and can alleviate the symptoms of stress. 

According to the American Psychological Society, “In a trial conducted by University of Alberta, with 42 children aged between 3-11, it was found that while getting an IV inserted, patients who listened to relaxing music reported significantly less pain, and some demonstrated significantly less distress, compared with patients who did not listen to music.”

Alleviation of Pain 

Martin Luther King had famously said, “My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.”

This statement, in fact, is quite true to an extent, as researchers now believe that listening to music triggers the release of opioids in our body. The same chemical comes into action when the body is in pain, acting as a natural antidote.  

Seizures

Christine Charyton, of the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, said that “Persons with epilepsy synchronize before a seizure. By listening to music, many patients reported that they felt relaxed.” 

Concluding Words

Music has the power to heal. It reaches the deepest corners of our soul and affects us in unprecedented ways. However, the depth of melody is without any boundaries of prefixed notes and scales. It is an eternal journey of understanding and perception beyond our senses.

“Music… will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Why Should You Stop Being Hard on Yourself

Why Should You Stop Being Hard on Yourself

Growing up, we are often subjected to comparisons drawn by adults. You are always in competition with children in your society, children in your school, children in your parent’s friend circle, and so on. Eventually, you start comparing yourself to everyone else as well.

This becomes a subconscious habit that can be really detrimental to your mental health. Constantly making comparisons puts undue stress on ourselves in addition to the amount we already have from work and life in general.

We get so caught up in proving ourselves that we often forget to give ourselves credit for the things that we have done and milestones we have achieved. There comes the point when we have had enough, and we start losing motivation; as a result, we start spiraling.

When people say “life is too short,” what they mean is that it is too short to spend trying to impress others. The years you have should be spent on doing things you like and learning stuff that you want to. You don’t have to prove yourself to anyone, and you don’t need to be better than anyone. The only person you should be in competition with is your past self. Aim on being better than yourself, that’s it.

It is Okay to be Yourself

One thing we are never told is that it is okay to be ourselves. We often try too hard to be like someone else, to impress others, to make our families proud, but the price we pay is too high. We lose ourselves in the process. Sooner or later, it catches up to us, and we start feeling unsatisfied with our lives, no matter how great it is.

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” – Friedrich Nietzsche

Our peace of mind and state of health is not worth compromising, our happiness is not worth giving up, our motivation is not worth losing; be yourself, that is who you can be the best version of.

It is Okay to Put Yourself First

Every person has their own strengths and weaknesses – no person is the same. No one is perfect, even if they seem like they are. What meets the eye is just the tip of the iceberg. If they seem insanely good at something, chances are they have sacrificed something else in their life to get to where they are.

“Faithless To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you want to learn something and master something, then it is okay to say “no” to other people. It is okay to put yourself first. Doesn’t matter if it is for you to focus on your craft or your mental health. At the end of the day, if you don’t value yourself enough to put yourself first, why would someone else?

It is Okay to Make Mistakes

Don’t beat yourself up for mistakes, embarrassments, and having negative thoughts when things don’t go your way. It is natural to feel beaten up when you face failure or make mistakes. All of these things, though, contribute to the uniqueness of your character. The moment you start being yourself, you will start noticing that a lot of people are like you, lost and isolated in the big world – thinking about things they could have done differently.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” – Maya Angelou

You have to learn to make the most of what you have already achieved and build on the lessons that you learned because of those mistakes and failures. People are afraid to try new things because they are afraid to fail in front of someone else. But, if you do not take those leaps, then you will never reach where you want to be. One thing to remember is that when things go wrong, it is US who have to face the brunt of it, not THEM, so do things and make mistakes with only you in mind.

It is Okay to Have Bad Days

We feel success is when we do not have problems and are always happy. It cannot be farther from the truth. No matter how much you earn or how successful you are, life will also be a sequence of ups and downs because, without downs, there are no ups.

“Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is.” – Dita Von Tesse

Without experiencing bad days, you won’t be able to appreciate the good days. Bad days also make us who we are, more than the good days ever will. We learn and grow from them. Remember, if it is a really bad one today, you do not have to do today again. Tomorrow brings a new day and new opportunities.

It is Okay to be Less Than Perfect

This is the one area that I have struggled with the most. The need to be perfect has been ingrained in us since childhood. Being compared to children who were good in other areas always made us feel inadequate. Some children learned to cancel the noise, while some couldn’t take it. It became a part of them, eating them out with every passing day. When thoughts like these are ingrained in you, no matter what you do, you will never feel satisfied.

“People are not perfect… very often the relationships that are strongest are those where people have worked through big crises, but they’ve had to work through them. So the challenge to us is to work through that.” – Patricia Hewitt

You have to learn to be okay with not being perfect in every single thing. It is okay to strive for perfection, but do not make that your goal. Your goal should be learning and achieving. That is what makes the process perfect.

Final Thoughts

Life already throws a lot of curveballs at us. We do not need to add ourselves to the mix. Be your own cheerleader, and go easy on yourself from time to time. Understand that not all days are going to be the same. You are going to achieve a lot one day and nothing the other day. On the days when nothing seems to be going your way, remember to be kind to yourselves.

Keep reminding yourself that it is okay to do things for yourself, and it is okay to stop for a moment and gather your wits. Take care of your wellbeing, and everything else will follow.
