You don’t like your life? Change it! Change your life for the better! Don’t have any clue on how to do it? Here’s a list of 100 ways in which you can improve your life. Feel free to add yours in the comments. This post is a response from a challenge I got from from Mike King in this great post 100 Ways To Be A Better Leader, which in turn got inspired by this one Tackle Any Issue With A List Of 100 , from Luciano Passuello. [Later edit: you may also be interested in this sequel 100 Ways To Screw Up Your Life. [ Update: There is an ebook based on this! Go ahead and read the post, or scroll down to the end of it for more details! ] Without further ado, let’s go.

1. Accept Your Mistakes
You’re human. We, humans, are making mistakes. Accept what you did wrong and try to do better next time. No need to punish yourself forever. In fact, accepting your mistakes is the only way to make them disappear.

2. Accept Your Friends Mistakes
Maybe you got hurt by somebody. Happens. Just accept it and deal with it. People are making mistakes and if you can accept that for yourself, accept it for your friends too. In the end, all you need from them is their love.

3. Create A New Habit
We’re doing a lot of stuff on autopilot. Try to integrate in this category new things you want to attract into your life. Habits are powerful. Harness their energy for your own good. Start by creating a habit in 15 days.

4. Build Self Discipline
Don’t wait for other people to impose discipline on you. Start early. Create your own discipline. Although it sounds a little bit harsh, self discipline is a facilitator for many things in your life. It’s hard to get but great to have.

5. Make New Friends

Reach out. Don’t be afraid. Establish new contacts. The worst thing that may happen to you is to be rejected. Well, if that’s the case, move on. The reward of having true, long-lasting friendship is worth all the potential rejection.

6. Get A New Job
Shaking your comfort zone will often create a lot of value in your life. If you’re not satisfied with your job, just get a new one. The pitfall of not having money for a limited period of time is temporary, get over it.

7. Start A New Diet
You are, in a vast proportion, what you eat. Trying a new diet would often be the only needed change for a dramatic boost of your health and energy. Don’t necessarily have to be raw food, or even vegetarian, whatever works for you.

8. Keep A Journal
Write down you feelings, your ideas, your goals, your activity. Journaling is by far one of the most useful things I’ve done to change my life for the best. It works in such a silent, yet effective way. All you need is pen and paper.

9. Create And Keep A Morning Phrase
Whatever you say to yourself in the morning, it will most likely come true during the day. Why not taking advantage of it? Create a simple morning phrase and say it to yourself first thing in the morning. Is that simple.

10. Travel Far Away From Your Home
Traveling long distance is incredibly rewarding. It’s so exciting and full with unknown events. I only recently started to travel really far away from my home, but I do wonder how could I ever made it until now without this.

11. Learn To Take Risks
Your life may be so boring and fade because… err, you made it like this? When was the last time your tried something really difficult? When was the last time you challenged the odds doing something risky? Do it now.

12. Start Your Own Business

Be your own boss. Work your own hours. I know, it sounds so shallow, for you, who hate your job but still have to stay there because of that mortgage. Well, unless you make the first step, nothing is going to change. That’s for sure.

13. Change Your Work Space
Clean up your desk. Re-arrange furniture. Add some color to that space. Make the place where you work really enjoyable. So enjoyable that work there won’t be perceived as work anymore. It will be something you love to do.

14. Learn A New Language
Challenge your mind. Constantly. If you’re going to do number 10, you’re going to learn some new languages too. From my experience, learning a new language is a fantastic mind opener. Sometimes you don’t even have to travel there.

15. Find Reasons To Agree
Rather than disagree. We have this mindset of competition which makes constantly arguing over things. Well, stop that. You don’t have to force yourself into agreement, if it’s not the case, just trying to find some reasons will be enough.

16. Pay Yourself First
You can’t give something if you don’t have it. You can’t spread light onto others if you don’t have light from within. You can’t give wealth to others if you don’t have it for yourself first. Make yourself a service and pay yourself first.

17. Wake Up Early
This is not a habit, this is a lifestyle. Don’t just wake up early without a purpose. Be early. Be there before others. Look for opportunities and embrace them. Waking up early means keeping your eye open to every available opportunity.

18. Train Your Focus
Your focus is in fact your reality. Use it wisely. Train it constantly for it will enhance your reality in ways you never imagined. Keep your focus sharp as a razor blade and be prepared to experience life in fantastic shapes and colors.

19. Start A Blog

Leave the passion out of your life and become an empty carcass. Every time you envy somebody you’re in fact lowering yourself. at everything. Leaving passion out of your life is living a life of a walking dead man. although providing a little bit of safety. gray and futureless life. 79. Envy is a form of worship: only instead of praising its object it’s diminishing its performer. Being a follower will amputate your bravery and guts. their richness.

Do things that are not valuable. Stop Walking . Chose to be exceptional. That will be enough to live a life of no meaning. The past is just a mark in the sand and the future an uncertain promise. Confrontation requires courage. always in search of something that doesn’t really exists. You don’t really live. Be in the middle. you managed to be in for something. Live in the middle. Revenge will never make things even. Be Resentful Even if you don’t use revenge. Resentment is like drinking poison while waiting for your enemies to die. No matter at whom your negative emotion is directed. 83. Just stay away from the present moment. Living only in “potential” means not living at all. 84. All you have is now. not too silent. either not. That’s one way to lose the most valuable feed-back you can get. you’ll never really know what are you up to. Be Averagish Not too much. hide and don’t face your phobias. keep some bad vibe about that person who insulted you. 82. When Going Through Hell.

Carefully plan and implement your revenge. not too little. holding it long enough inside yourself will eventually screw up your life. Avoid your rivals. And you’ll soon become a predictable and much too easy to manipulate machine. You’re either up to something. Don’t waste it. 85. It will make things worse. Creating genuine value is at the core of our life purpose.

Don’t Clean Up Your Lenses Your life could be blurred at times. not to mention that it will shift your focus from what you’re doing to what you’re … talking about. as Winston Churchill said. sleep by the news. Talking too much. 92. If you keep them dirty. you’ll get sucked. We tend to value things based on how much we “spend” for them. and they say that for a reason. instead of practicing information overload. 90. if only you keep going and don’t stop. they say. Cleaning up your lenses should be a habit for anyone who really wants to adapt to change. Every time you bump into some hard times. Happens. Be An Information Junkie Live by the news. How much are you really going to use out of what you’re exposing yourself to? Being an information junkie will give you the illusion of control. Fall For “Free Stuff” There is no such thing as a free lunch. You’ll be much better if you master the art of ignoring. Chasing your goals the same way dogs are chasing mechanical rabbits at a dog race is just stupid. Nothing really worth having is free in this world. what would you chase next? Do you really want to live a life of a racing dog? 91. Because the only real thing we have in this life is change. as harmless as it can seem. Information is supposed to be useful. Talking should be a way to connect. as undeserved at it might seem. Anything presented as “free” is in fact a trap. The others may serve as a comparison at times. wake up by the news. Hence. Talk More Than You Have To And piss off everyone else in the process. a freebie will be worthless. of course. just keep going. a trap which will require more from you than you are willing to pay. otherwise you’ll get burned. Race Against Others The only real competition is with you. Be Late . but you can only win against yourself. talk less. Even hell can be passed. 88. If you stop. Your life lenses got stuck or you have some dirt on them. 89. 93. you won’t change your perspective and will keep stumble until you fall. could really cut off from your social circle.And you’ll get stuck forever. to express your feelings and creativity. Once the race is over. The only way to get out from it is to keep going. Do more.

Accept Frustration Yes. Frustration is from the same family with regret and share one very nasty family trait: it will dry you up and puts you in a no man’s land territory.

And objects are inconsistent. will have only one possible end: you’ll get dumped. Yes. I’ve been there too. 96. If something went bad. We all do. There are people who are making a living out of rejecting joy. Pain is unavoidable. Happiness is the journey. It can’t be your family. 99. 97. 95. I know it’s way more difficult to do this than it is to write about it. At your social gatherings. acknowledge and move on. Yes. as it is for spotting and grabbing opportunities.At your job. of course. your kids. Butsuffering is optional. Reject Joy Don’t enjoy because joy is a silly way to behave. your friends. It’s a continuous state of mind. it can make you want to cry out loud. be happy it happened. Be Jealous Do like many other people and think jealousy is a form of love. Because it’s a useless emotion. But there’s no need to give in to frustration. you’re going to be hit hard. it will make you vulnerable. fluctuant and unstable. Happiness is a process. Give In To Pain At some point in your life. life can be a bitch. you transform happiness into an object. At informal meetings. Being punctual is an art. 94. Panic . Jealousy is a variation of the “control freak” syndrome. If you give in to pain. But being vulnerable is the only way to really experiment life in all its dimensions. your new house. with a little bit of panic disorder. Because it could make you vulnerable. And I really know that suffering is just another choice. Show up later and you’ll slowly get out of touch with everything else around you. your new career. And totally screw up your life in the process.

Yes. . Don’t allow any feeling of love to reach to you. just panic. or even days. your life will be useless. Whenever something is out of your normal routine. follow the crowd and think the world will collapse. 100. You won’t need months to screw up your life when you do this. Don’t Love Turn your soul into a stone. You let some unexpected events to control your response. unexpected stuff can happen. You won’t need weeks. Be happy: every unpredicted event in your life it’s an opportunity. Lose your head.Give your power to circumstances. The moment you forbid love to reach to you. Frost your heart. Panic is the ultimate form of submission.
