We all want to grow and become the best versions of ourselves, but we often don’t know where to start, I didn’t know where to start, I had to seek advice from the ones that are close to me who I felt would give me the best advice with no agenda and for nothing else but to help and see me grow.
Here are seven steps to help you lead a life you’ll love and be happy!
Don’t dwell on your past. Let your thoughts be consumed with possibilities rather than defeat and limitations. Each new day is a chance to better yourself. Don’t define yourself by who you once were.
It’s easy to run away or distract yourself from negative emotions. But allowing yourself to feel and work through difficult times is the only way you will really experience transformational growth.
Boundaries are put in place to protect yourself, not to control other people. Don’t create unnecessary drama in your life because you aren’t able to effectively set boundaries.
Drink more water. Stop eating when you’re full. Give your body movement and fresh air each day. Practice self-care to avoid burnout.
Replace your usual complaints with expressions of gratitude. Among all the things that are wrong, point out the things in your life that are right! You’ll be surprised how many you can find when you look!
Step outside of yourself and cultivate a spirit of generous service not only deepens relationships but also makes you an overall happier person!
Stop being so hard on yourself. The key to experiencing growth and becoming the best version of yourself is to give grace to who you already are and love yourself along your journey.

For most of my adulthood and childhood I can honestly say I was not happy, I was depressed and even at point suicidal. Much of these feeling stems from my childhood and how I was raised. Having a daughter who is now nine years old I relish at being her father and always there for […]
In our lifetime we will experience success, failures, and milestones. These are the things that make up a good part of our life and we should recognize each of them as they are all . Throughout my life I honestly did not recognize any of these, but I did focus on my failures mostly although […]
