Do you find yourself stuck on a plateau and growing bored of the same routine? Are you angered by or jealous of the success of others? Here are some tips on how you can reclaim your life and reach those goals you have been hoping to attain.

It is a fact that the happier you are with your own success, the less likely you will foster hatred for the successful. Familiarize yourself with these tips on how to better yourself and you’ll find yourself impressed with your improved performance.

10. Taking care of your health is a crucial factor in reclaiming your life.

It is scientifically proven that individuals who engage in physical training at least twice a week and maintain a healthy diet have marked improved levels of performance in their pursuits. When you’re feeling well, you work well–bottom line. Although sleep may not always be an option, try to get at least 6 hours daily. The whole “Sleep when you’re dead” routine will eventually begin to detract from your performance and leave you with the telltale sign of dark circles under your eyes.

9. Set goals for yourself.

Construct a vision board of the goals you wish to accomplish in the long-term and short-term. The idea of “The Secret” is relevant here because if you can envision your goals and aspirations—literally seeing them every day—then you are more likely, by the forces of nature, to attract that positivity into your life. This has happened numerous times and I can swear by this method.

8. Make a “To Do” list and update your progress daily.

The satisfaction of crossing a goal off your list is more than rewarding; it is an incentive in itself. Although your list will be constantly updated with additions despite your progress, making a list will help you prioritize your most urgent tasks and work more efficiently.

7. Do not multi-task.

If you multi-task with important matters, you are unlikely to fully address each project. This will eventually show in your work. If you focus on one task and see it to completion you will work more efficiently and improve your organization skills. One method of action I always find useful is turning my Internet off until all my tasks for the day have been completed; there are simply too many distractions on the web. If you continue to start and stop, the task will far longer than necessary and your motivation will diminish over time.

6. Take pride in and believe in your work.

If you are not proud of your work and have no successes to share with your friends, family, colleagues, or co-workers then you will be unsatisfied with yourself. Know that your work does make a difference each day and what you are contributing is worthwhile. Confidence is key; without it you will not succeed. Your self-esteem is what defines you. Know your purpose and remind yourself each day and night. Love what you do so that you can do it well.

5. Dress to impress. Literally.

When you are well dressed will feel more confident when meeting important figures and while doing your weekly routines. First impressions are crucial in myriad backgrounds. When you are going into a meeting you want your confidence at it’s peak; it is of the utmost importance to ensure that you look as good as you feel.

4. Be optimistic.

No matter how many negative things happen in a day, remember that tomorrow can always bring improvements. Positive thinking means understanding that setbacks are transient; you have ability to combat your setbacks and overcome the challenges you face. Focus on the future and take action with a positive mindset.

3. Surround yourself with a supporting social network.

Having positive people around you who are dependable and care for your well-being is vital. You need someone to whom you can vent your problems. Even though venting will not eliminate the problems, it allows you to receive positive feedback and come up with helpful solutions. Brainstorming ideas and organizing your thoughts will always be beneficial. However, try and surround yourself with smart and creative people who can positively impact you.

2. Never settle or become complacent; there is ALWAYS room for improvement.

Practice literally makes perfect. You need to be constantly bettering yourself and wanting to learn more. You are not a wise man until you can accept that you know nothing; this is true in every aspect of life. Set high expectations that seem impossible. Once you meet these expectation, you will receive great satisfaction as your reward. Once you have reached those goals, simply continue to surpass the competition.

1. Learn problem solving skills.

Do not take no for an answer; find a way to circumvent your roadblocks. You need to learn how to adapt and find solutions to problems are preventative of you thriving in life. Research suggests that people with well-polished problem solving skills are more capable of coping with issues. Experiment with different strategies and focus on developing a logical approach to common problems. Taking action is the best way to get what you desire on your own schedule. You cannot simply wait around for problems to resolve themselves; this wastes too much time. Act quickly and efficiently.
