Here are 10 ways that you can achieve just that, and change your life in 2018.
1. Create a Vision Board
A vision board is generally a collage that features visuals — images and snippets — depicting the goals and dreams you want to attract in your life. They can also be composed of daily goals and inspirations that bring you one step closer to success a day at a time. Creating a vision board will fuel your motivation in new ways and push you to formulate an action plan for your LIMU business.
2. Eat Healthier
Not everything requires a complicated plan or spreadsheet to begin. You can start living better and building a healthier you right now. Choose your meals wisely (even when dining out) and try to reduce the number of unhealthy snacks you consume in between meals, or just can your cravings altogether. If you find you’re hungry all. the. time., one thing you can also do is drink a lot of water. If you don’t stay hydrated throughout the day, you can suffer from headaches, fatigue and joint aches.
3. Initiate Conversations
Be social and be confident! By embracing your self-confidence when you engage and speak to others, you’ll become more effective in approaching potential prospects. If you make it a goal to get out there and make at least one new meaningful connection a day, you’ll see your network grow. Whether it’s at a coffee shop, on Facebook and Instagram, or through our powerful new LIMU Share App — you can’t be afraid to initiate conversations.
4. Invest in Yourself
Great opportunities come to people who invest in their personal development, health, network and knowledge. When you grow, people are more likely to follow your lead and invest in you and your business. If you trade your time and effort now for elevated and enhanced skills, know-how, relationships and fitness, your results will multiply in the future. And the best thing? Making yourself a priority doesn’t require much money! It’s a mindset and matter of commitment.
5. Travel More
This year, resolve to see and do more, instead of buying more. Even better, go big with a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Many travelers agree that the very act of visiting someplace new makes them feel happier, healthier, relaxed and more successful. If time and money are issues, even weekend getaways can fill your adventurous void. Or work toward qualifying for one of our luxurious all-expenses-paid Reward Trips designed to pamper you and push you to dream even bigger and achieve even more!
6. Get Fit
Improving your physical fitness can work wonders not only on your overall health, but also significantly impact your quality of life and self-confidence. It will also make you a walking billboard for your LIMU success because you’ll be a product of the products! Making your physical wellbeing one of your top priorities each week is crucial towards reaching both your fitness and business goals. Just ease yourself into your initial fitness routines. Even simple exercises such as jogging, walking and calisthenics are solid ways to get started. If you’re constantly traveling and on the go, here are some easy ways to stay fit on the fly.
7. Create a Personal Business Plan
Budgeting, saving and investing may not necessarily sound like much fun, but the rewards are always worth it. It’s a proven way to build success and reach new levels of stability. But, how do you get started on a business plan? Start by detailing all of your goals and assign daily action items and milestones for how you plan to achieve them. This will help clarify daily steps you need to take to hit the mark.
8. Follow a Routine
Our daily routines can make a huge difference on how healthy, happy and successful we are. They can make the difference between getting more done and wasting less time in between tasks or activities. Peak productivity is not about luck. It’s about devotion. So, remember to start the year off right by following effective routines that are simple to follow and repeat. After all, everything you need to LIMU you learned in Kindergarten! Before you know it, you’ll be achieving more than you thought possible.
9. Wake Up Early
Often times, waking up early is one of the hardest habits to put into practice, but it doesn’t have to be. Most attempts to wake up early fail because there isn’t a strong enough reason established to drive the change of habit. Why do you want to wake up early? To get more work done? To workout before work and get healthier? To have time to make breakfast or a quick LIMU LEAN shake? Once you have a clear reason, it becomes easier.
10. Smile More
Smiles can relieve stress, spark new friendships and make you healthier. Really! Even a smile in the shape of an emoji can lighten the mood. Smiling also makes you look friendlier and more approachable, which is extremely important when interacting with new potential prospects. Plus, it shows excitement and confidence in whatever topics you’re discussing with that person; and people want to be around uplifting people with positive energy!
