导读: 1 You spend too much time doing things you shouldn’t be doing 你在不应该做的事情上浪费了太多的时间 Video games


1. You spend too much time doing things you shouldn’t be doing


Video games. Reality TV. Surfing the ‘net. Stuffing your face with too much food. Drinking too much. And the list goes on. Take a serious look at your life. Where are you spending the majority of your time? And does it serve you well? Is it leading to a better life? Is it laying the foundation for a bright future? If not, then you need to reevaluate your routine activities and make changes.


2. You find yourself complaining a lot


I know people who are constantly overwhelmed with life, and they never cease to tell me. Are you one of those people? Do you complain about your job, your boss, your salary, your neighbors or your spouse? If you do, then you are doing nothing but exuding negative energy. Negativity doesn’t change things. It keeps you stuck. So change your thoughts and talk about what you appreciate about your life, not what you don’t like.


3. You don’t feed your mind


If you’re not continually growing and learning as a person, then you are stagnant. That’s what your mind does if you don’t keep it active and learn new things. Positive challenges in your life will expand your mind, not send it backwards.


4. You have a lot of negative self-talk


Self-talk can make or break your life. As Henry Ford said, "Whether you think you can, or think you can’t… either way, you’re right". If you tell yourself that you’re not smart enough to get that promotion or start a business, then you’re right. If you tell yourself you’re too exhausted to put effort into changing your life, then you’re right. Whatever you tell yourself becomes your reality. So closely monitor what you say to yourself, because you will find that your life matches your thoughts.

自我暗示会成就你的生活也会毁掉你的生活。亨利-福特说过:“无论你认为自己能做到还是认为自己不能做到…..这就要看你怎么暗示自己了。” 如果你暗示自己不够聪明、不能晋升、不能创业,那么你就会变成你自己所暗示的状态。如果你暗示自己太累了,无法努力改变自己目前的生活状态,那么,结果你目前的生活状态就会一成不变。你暗示自己的话,会变成你的现状。所以,要密切监视自己对自己的暗示,因为你会发现你的想法决定你的生活状态。

5. You feel uninspired


Do you have a passion for anything? I know a lot of people who think they don’t have a passion. But that’s never the case. There has to be something that you enjoy doing. So you need to rediscover what excites you, and then do more of it.


6. You don’t plan for your future


If you don’t have a goal or a plan, then you are like a boat that is wandering aimlessly in the ocean hoping to end up somewhere good. But you can’t do that. You have to make a step-by-step guide to get where you want to go. Just like a GPS gets you to a destination, you need your own inner GPS to guide you.


7. You spend too much time with people who don’t contribute to your growth


It’s easy to get stuck hanging out with people who are not making you feel like a better person. But if you keep doing that, then you will stay stagnant or get pulled down with them. I like to call them "Energy Vampires". They suck the life out of you and give you nothing positive in return. Instead, go find growth-oriented people to be around.


8. You’re addicted to your phone


Sure, cell phones are super cool gadgets that can leave us entranced when we use them. While that’s fun, think about all the time you are wasting with your phone. Even worse, think about all the relationships that might be affected. Maybe you’re texting or searching the internet while you’re having dinner with your spouse or kids. If you are, you’re missing out on meaningful time you can spend with your loved ones – or time you could devote to making a plan for your future.


9. You spend money on things that don’t matter


In fact, I know people who can’t pay their mortgage, but still have the fanciest gadgets on the planet. If you stop to think about it, there is very little that we actually need. Food, water, shelter and love are some of those things. All the rest are just bonuses. So look at what you’re spending your money on and see if you can make adjustments. Maybe you can use the money you save to invest in your future.


10. You don’t get enough sleep


I’m not a medical doctor, but I have read enough books to know how vitally important sleep is. Sleep is crucial for good health. If you’re too busy to get enough sleep or if you simply have a bad habit of staying up until the wee hours of the morning, you should re-evaluate your habits.


11. You’re not taking care of your body


Not only is sleep essential to your health, so is food and exercise. I know I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. But eating a balanced, healthy diet and moving your body around truly does have more positive effects other than weight loss. So take a look at your diet and level of activity. You might find that making a few small changes will greatly improve your life.


12. You don’t leave your comfort zone


I know how easy it is to live in a comfort zone. In fact, when I go to a familiar restaurant, I always order the same thing. Not because I’m afraid to try something new, but because I like the food I normally order. But that’s not the kind of comfort zone I’m talking about. I’m talking about taking a risk that will improve your life. And keep in mind, there is a difference between a "risk" and a "calculated risk". Any risk has the possibility to be deadly, but a calculated risk is one in which you’ve weighed all options and thus come up with a good, sensible plan of action.


13. You’re living a life you don’t like


The way I measure success is by someone’s level of happiness. Are you happy? If not, then you should change something! Even a feeling of contentment or satisfaction doesn’t tell you that you’re living life to the fullest. Life should be exciting! So if you’re not enjoying life, take a look at some of the changes you can make to get you to a better place.


If any of these 13 points sounded like you, don’t despair. You can make changes. But the first change you need to make is getting rid of the idea that you can’t do it. Many times, your biggest obstacle is your own thought process. So start there. Change your thinking – then change your life!

如果你的生活状态恰巧与这13点有类似之处,那也不要绝望。你可以自己做出改变来改变自己的生活状态。但是,首先需要自己改变的一点是:你要摆脱“我做不了” 的这种想法。很多时候,你最大的障碍是你自己的思维过程。所以,从改变自己的思维开始。改变你的思维角度,那么,你的生活状态就会随之改变!
