Most people want to live their best life — they want a happier, healthier and richer, more meaningful life. However, there are major barriers to doing this. Most people don’t have enough time, money or energy to make changes and start living a better lifestyle.
In today’s society, most people are stressed out, time-starved and budget-challenged. It can be overwhelming to even think about making changes in their life.
Transforming your life doesn’t have to be such a long and involved process — it doesn’t have to take months or years to accomplish. Otherwise, you’re more likely to get discouraged and give up.
Many people end up failing to achieve their goals even when they have good ideas and good intentions. Working harder, faster or longer to achieve your goals is not enough to become successful.
Working smarter can help in dealing with barriers to successfully living a better quality life. This involves finding creative solutions to problems and using shortcuts. However, knowledge is not enough. New knowledge is useless unless it’s implemented.
Positive thinking is only half the battle — it can only take you so far. It will take good ideas and practical steps to make things happen. In order to be successful, you have to make things happen… you have to take action.
By taking action, you’re taking advantage of new scientific findings in brain plasticity or neuroplasticity. Your brain changes when you take action — it changes when you change your mind and change your life.
Brain plasticity is a good reason why consistently taking action can dramatically improve your chances of success. The brain changes with increase in knowledge. However, dramatic changes will not take place unless new information is applied repeatedly and new skill is practiced.
Anyone who wants to overcome barriers to living a better quality of life and develop life-changing habits can apply the new findings in brain plasticity. Just learning about new ways of eating healthy or reducing stress will not effectively lead to long-term lifestyle changes. The new knowledge needs to be practiced repeatedly until it becomes a habit.
What are you longing for? Do you want to live your best life?
Start taking action and you can start achieving your goals: you can achieve lasting weight control… you can build satisfying relationships… you can live a happier, healthier and richer, more satisfying life.
