3 Ways to Improve Your Life Quickly

When it comes to growth and expanding our life, some of my favorite tools and strategies are the ones that don’t require a ton of effort (just small shifts) and have big payoff. I’m often asked about simple shifts even people who are busy or stressed (or both) can make to improve things. So, I thought I’d share three of my favorite shifts that, when made with intention, can have a huge positive impact on your life fairly quickly. 

1. Raise Your Standards.

What’s mediocre in your life? What has the energy of “tolerating”? Notice these things and decide not to settle for them anymore. Big or small. Three of my newer standards include higher quality sheets, 60+ grams of healthy protein per day, and higher quality conversations about positive, inspiring topics. Once something becomes a standard in your mindset and you stick to it, your entire life levels up.

Where can you raise your standards (and stick to them without apology)? When you elevate your standards to match the life you desire and deserve, you get to start living it NOW. How cool is that?

2. Keep Promises to Yourself.

Show up for YOU. When you make promises to yourself and keep them, you show your brain that you’re a person who follows through. This will inspire more confidence, bigger goals, and more great energy in your life. Make a positive promise to yourself today and vow to show up for it consistently. The results are powerful!

3. Make sure your choices are in alignment with the life you desire.

Using alignment as a foundation for choices and decisions is a game changer. It will inspire you to be more intentional and mindful about the things you’re doing in your life – big and small – from food choices to the people you spend time with. Start today and you’ll level up your life immediately.

Ask yourself before any choice or decision, “Is this in alignment with my goals and the life I’m creating?” The guidance you’ll receive from connecting with yourself like this is invaluable. 

These three strategies will give you nearly immediate (and long term) positive results and powerful momentum. Remember, you are worth the effort and deserve amazing things!
