Life is hard, amazing and inspiring at the same time. At some point we all want the change in our lives. Maybe you are working a corporate job and you don’t want to work anymore or maybe you want to start a side business yourself. Change is important, sometimes even uncomfortable. In order to change your life, you need to start looking at things differently. It’s 2020 and it’s the beginning of a new year so this is the best time for you to decide, take action and change your life for the better.

You want to level up your career and build something great? Do you really want to create something awesome from your life? It’s going to be hard and easy at the same time. Life is ups and downs. If you can accept that life is only as good as you are then you will start appreciating moments more. You will start appreciating money, happiness & your friends and family more. It’s about putting in the work to make your life the best life ever.

Start By Creating a Plan For Your Life

What is your plan? Your plan is your vision for this year and more upcoming years. But let’s focus on this year, 2020. What do you want to achieve? Do you want to earn more money or do you maybe want to buy a car? Have a plan in your head. Attract the vision with the law of attraction. It works if you work. Start by having a clear vision and path towards success. If you want to level up in your business, start learning your business model step by step each day. Sacrifice your time with friends and family because you will need to invest your time wisely. If you really want to change your life in one year or less, you will need to do this. Know that whatever your plan is it’s going to take time to achieve it, so be patient.

Start With “WHY”

Why do you want to change? Do you want to change because you will get something out of it? For example, if you are overweight and you want to build muscle and lose fat your goal is most likely to be shredded or to have a good body, that’s your “WHY”. Chase your “WHY” because it’s really important why you are doing things in the first place. Create a vision aligned with your goals. While most of the people only look at the bare surface of their goals, what you really need to do is break your goals into small pieces and steps. For example: I want to lose fat and build muscle, for that I will need to be consistent, eat healthier and workout at least 4 to 5 times per week. If you do small things each day, it will add up and you will achieve more. When it comes to big goals and ambitions you got to be able to wait and be patient for that.

The same thing goes for your passion or career. Why are you working that job? Is it because it pays good but you don’t really like it? Or is it because you really enjoy doing it? Find things that you will appreciate each day because you never know where that could lead you to. If you don’t have a passion or a “WHY” yet, keep searching, try things. Be a rapper, try writing songs, try making music, go out there try building a business and see if it works. The only thing you will get is feedback, nothing else. With a good feedback system you can get far in life. You only need to know one thing and that is regret is poison. At the end of your life, you will only regret the things you didn’t do, so keep that in mind.

Consistency Beats Everything & Everyone

If you’re trying to build something great we already said that patience is the key, but the second “SECRET” to success is consistency combined with your work ethic. Work ethic is the key that’s undeniably the key to success, but when it comes to consistency it’s definitely a huge part of success. If you truly want to transform your life in any shape or form, you need to be consistent. For example, if you try to post on Instagram or on any other social media for at least 90 days, you could easily build a brand. You can literally post every day something that you are passionate about and you can build an audience from that. It’s simple as that.

You need to know that success is simple, but people are overcomplicating it to the point that other people don’t even know what is the “SECRET” anymore. There is NO SECRET that success is not just the talent, but also obsession and consistency combined with work ethic. If you want to change in 2020, you better start now because it will be the same thing as 2019 and 2018 etc. It’s important to visualize your success every day and if it’s possible to surround yourself with people who are obsessed with their craft.

Surround Yourself With Greatness

As we already said surrounding yourself with people who are on the same mission as you is vital. It’s important to seek help when you need it. Find mentors, people who are obsessed with their craft and connect with them. Make friends and business connections, that’s the most important thing. It’s not easy to find people like that, but it’s way easier today than 20 years ago when social media was not even here. Find people who are on the same mission as you and start searching that type of people online on social media. Find great people who are willing to share their experiences and who are willing to help you. Surround yourself with greatness because when you surround yourself with great people, you will start noticing when you are not progressing and when you need to step up your game. It will be really hard to compete and that’s the beauty of it.

Chase Passion, Not The Money

After earning a lot of money, you will see that this isn’t a true definition of happiness. It’s what you do daily that inspires you and motivates you even more to do it. Passion is always first and it should be because when you love your work, you don’t even look at the money aspect of it. One tip that you can apply is that when you truly want to build something great, change your life then it’s way better to do it because you want to build something great, not because of the money. Because in life, building something, whatever that is will make you feel great because you are actually starting something and building something great instead of consuming something that others build. If you want to change your life in one year, this needs to be on your aim. Keep that in mind while changing your life one step at the time.

Your Energy Is Your Fuel

Stop wasting time on bullsh*t because that will cost you a lot. If you have some toxic friends that are constantly pulling you down in life, start getting rid of them. Your energy is everything. If you lose your energy on drama and things that will only bring you hatred and bad life then it’s probably not worth it. You could easily invest that energy back into your business or personal life. Good and positive energy is what you need in order to win in life. It’s nothing more than that.

Just like wasting time this will cost you money and in the end your life. Change is important in life so if you are willing to change your bad energy for a positive one, you will have a much better life. Whenever you see something bad in life, try to at least look at one positive thing about it that way you will see more positivity in your life. For some life is all ups and no downs but then one down can hurt them so bad. For some, it’s all downs but then one up can change their whole life so whenever you think about something negative, flip that into a positive and start over, plan and take action on it. It sounds crazy but with positivity, you can change your life much faster and make this year a great one.
