Do you feel like you’re not getting what you want out of life? Or, that you don’t feel super fulfilled and satisfied at the end of the day? It’s not a fun feeling, but there is something you can do about it. And simply giving yourself powerful principles can help you get what you want out of life and here are five to get you started.
Brad Stulberg, author and coach, has spent lots of time with elite performers and he’s discovered the principles that keep these individuals living big.
Stress and rest leads to growth
This principle applies to both body and mind. So, if you want to grow, get smarter and become more creative, the best way to do so is by pushing yourself to the very limit (stress) and then rest and reflect on what you just did.
The process is more important than the results
When you pressure yourself to always and only achieve top results, you set yourself up for failure and defeat. Instead, always concentrate on improving yourself. And research has found that this approach is good for mental health, too.
Staying humble isn’t the same as being shy or feeling inadequate. Being humble means being open to improving and learning more. And this openness can really help you get out of your comfort zone and grow.
Small steps lead to big gains
Significant change doesn’t happen over night. Instead, it happens over time when you take small and consistent steps toward a big goal. Sooner or later, you’ll end up with massive gains.
Minimize to Maximize
For some reason, we place a lot of value on being stressed out, multi-tasking and “doing it all”. But all of this busyness doesn’t always lead to high quality work. Instead, focus on getting really good at one thing. That’s how you become a master or an expert.
