Your Action Plan is a monthly to-do list of tips straight from SUCCESS magazine—10 things you can do right now to improve yourself and your life.
This month, take a hard look at where you stand in life and renovate where necessary. Get intentional about the things you want to change and take the first step today!
1. Stay strong.
Exercise is crucial for a healthy heart. This week, aim to walk 10,000 steps per day, and try to hit the weights twice per week.
Stay alert by taking time out of your day to meditate or do a yoga routine—anything that will help you recharge.
3. Change language.
If negative thinking is keeping you down, rewire your thought patterns by using positive phrases such as “I can” or “I believe.”
4. Get intentional.
Are you being purposeful? Write down your goals and take time to examine your intent behind each one.
5. Fuel creativity.
To get your creative juices flowing, allow yourself to be bored. Taking a step back can give you a fresh perspective.
6. Deal with it.
When you face inconveniences, how do you handle them? When problems come your way, make the best of them rather than allowing them to defeat you.
7. Learn more.
Reading is the best investment you can make in your personal development. Set a reading goal for yourself and stick to it.
8. Be courageous.
Do risks scare you? When faced with a risk, make a pros and cons list, then tap into your courage to tackle them with confidence.
9. Own up to it.
Leaders must take responsibility for any problems a group faces. Create a plan for what to do when a crisis occurs.
10. Aim high.
What’s your New Year’s resolution? Write it down, then break down that goal into smaller steps to make it more attainable.
