20 Tips for A Positive New Year

From http://www.jongordon.com/thenocomplainingrule.html

Stay Positive. You can listen to the cynics and doubters and believe
that success is impossible or you can know that with faith and an
optimistic attitude all things are possible.

When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement:
        “My purpose is_________________________________”

Take a morning walk of gratitude. I call it a “thank you walk.” It will
create a fertile mind ready for success.

Instead of being disappointed about where you think optimistically
about where you are going.

Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a
college kid with a maxed out charge card.

Remember that adversity is not a dead-end but a detour to
a better outcome.

Focus on learning, loving, growing and serving.

Believe that everything happens for a reason and expect good
things to come out of challenging experiences.

Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires,
issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control.
Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

Mentor someone and be mentored by someone.

Live with the 3 E’s. Energy. Enthusiasm. Empathy.

Remember there’s no substitute for hard work.

Zoom Focus. Each day when you wake up in the morning ask:
“What are the three most important things I need to do today
that will help me create the success I desire?” Then tune out all
the distractions and focus on these actions.

Implement the www.NoComplainingRule.com . Complaining is
like vomiting. Afterwards you feel better but everyone around you
feels sick.

Read more books than you did in 2013.

Get more sleep. You can’t replace sleep with a double latte.

Focus on “Get to” vs. “Have to.” Each day focus on what you get to do, not what you have to do. Life is a gift not an obligation.

Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements: 

        “I am thankful for_______________________________________”

        “Today I accomplished__________________________________”

Smile and laugh more. They are natural anti-depressants.

Enjoy the ride. You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy it.
