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.
Which one are you going to action first? Remember it’s all down to you to make the difference now not me, not your friends or words on paper. It starts with you making action.

Let’s face it, asking for help sometimes can be tough. It may feel like we are admitting that we don’t know something that we feel we should. Or perhaps we are nervous that someone will laugh at our question. Or be bothered by it. The reality is actually quite different. Most people LOVE to be […]
