Don't fall into the trap of never being satisfied with what you have. It's easy to continually distract yourself with bigger goals, but it can be difficult to appreciate your life as it is right now.

This tendency is natural. For 99% of the time that humans have existed on this planet, being happy or at peace meant danger or death. We had to stay on our toes just to stay alive.

Even though we're no longer being chased by saber tooth tigers, that part of our brain hasn't changed. Practicing gratitude can help remind us that our life is actually pretty damn good, all things considered.

A PERSONAL EXAMPLE:
Ever since I was introduced to entrepreneurship by my first mentor when I was 18, it's been my goal to not only work for myself, but also have freedom of time and location.

When I finally reached that goal in 2014, I was SO excited. But eventually, the novelty and newness of the accomplishment wore off and I adjusted to a new normal. In fact, most of my peers and friends that I had made along the way were doing even “better” than I was!

It would've been easy for me to slip into a place where I was always dissatisfied with where I was at. But I caught myself before I fell into that trap. I reminded myself that I had achieved something I had been fantasizing about for a decade!

Once I really let that thought sink in, I was instantly filled with gratitude. And although I sometimes still have challenging days, I always go back to gratitude. Gratitude for how far I've come. Gratitude for where I'm at. Gratitude for where I'm going.

If you always think “success” is just around the corner with the next job, the next lover, the next achievement, it will never come. Make it a habit to celebrate small wins and milestones along the way to your larger goals.

This isn't about being naive or pretending that negative things don't happen. It's about being aware that negative things happen but still having the courage to be positive in spite of them. Don't ever become so jaded with the world that you forget to notice all the good in it.

No matter where you are in life, celebrate it. It's either a product of your growth or a place that will help you grow. We are all works in progress and every season serves its purpose.

When you start to embrace and appreciate who you are and where you are in life rather than always wishing you were someone or someplace else, you paradoxically take on a more attractive and creative energy that you can use to propel yourself forward toward your goals.

Trust that things will work out. Maybe not immediately, but eventually. Learn to relax and enjoy your process. One day you'll look back fondly on this phase in your life.

What's crazy is that many of these “stories” we tell ourselves are not objectively true. They're just things we make up through our assumptions. Or they're beliefs we've unconsciously accepted from others.

Thing is, when we accept something as true, our brain immediately goes to work to find evidence that supports it. That's why our stories and beliefs seem so real to us!

Bottom line:
If you want to change your life, you must first change your stories and beliefs about yourself, your circumstances, and the world around you.

I created the Mindset Shifts Masterclass to help you do just that. Registration is OPEN NOW and will remain open only through 6pm PST on Sunday, May 21.

Don't go looking for the person of your dreams. Instead, focus on becoming the person of your dreams and you'll be more likely to find the right person.

Don't chase riches. Instead, work on creating value for others and mastering your craft, thereby increasing your value.

You must match the energy of your desires before you can manifest them in your life. Work on being the best version of yourself possible and the rest will fall into place.
