1. Don’t avoid or ignore negativity.
In order to conquer and overcome, it must be acknowledged. This can include people in your life who may be bringing you down, a hostile workplace environment or even a personal stressor that you haven’t conquered quite yet.
2. Take care of yourself and your needs.
In order to feel compelled to live a powerful and meaningful life, you must love you. Take care of your actions and how you live each day, and this will be reflected in your thoughts and emotional state of mind.
3. Mend what’s broken or get rid of it.
Determining what is worth your time and effort and what is not can be challenging. If situations are toxic and beyond repair, it’s time to let go. Are there relationships or friendships that remain damaged but you know are worth the time? Fix them and find peace.
4. Give back.
Giving our time, energy, love, mentorship and sometimes money is what life is about. Everything we put out into the world comes back to us. At the end of the day, no matter what you have you are likely in a position to give something small to someone else who needs it. Don’t hesitate.
5. Things that make us smile, laugh and feel good are just awesome.
