Implement 6 Steps into Your Life to Improve Happiness
- Use the 80/20 Rule
This is one of the best ways to make better use of your time. The 80/20 rule is also known as The Pareto Principle and basically states that 80 percent of the value you will receive will come from 20 percent of your activities.
So a lot of what you do is probably not as useful or even necessary to do as you may think. You can just drop, or decrease, the time you spend on a whole bunch of things. And if you do that you will have more time and energy to spend on those things that really brings your value, happiness, fulfilment and so on.
- GIVE Value, then GET Value
There is an idea trending in today’s society that someone should give us something, or do something for us, before we give back. The problem here is just that – a lot of people think that way and less than possible is given either way.
If you want to increase the value you receive (money, love, kindness, opportunities etc.) you have to increase the value you give. Over time, you will get what you give.
- Be proactive, not reactive.
Proactivity as the act of taking charge of your life, being responsible for it, and taking action to master your life.
If everyone is reactive then very little will get done. Simply be the one to take the first practical action and get the ball rolling. This not only saves you a lot of waiting, but is also more pleasurable since you feel like you have the power over your life, instead of feeling like you are run by outside forces.
- Don’t be afraid to fail.
Mistakes and failure help you discover who you really are, they teach you valuable life lessons, and help you get over your fear.
Success in life often comes from not giving up despite mistakes and failure. It comes from being persistent.
- Assume Rapport
Instead of going into a conversation or meeting nervously and thinking “how will this go?” you take different approach. You assume that you and the person(s) will establish a good connection (rapport). Simply pretend that you are meeting one of your best friends. Then you start the interaction in that frame of mind instead of the nervous one.
- Your attitude changes your reality.
When you change your attitude you change what you focus on. And all things in your world can now be seen in a different light.The mind is everything. What you think is what you become.
