Often, we all focus too much on other people’s needs, problems, progress, etc, yet forget our own issues that could need urgent consideration. We then find ourselves so stressed out about other people’s issues, and ironically, ours.
There are times when we’ve got to become positively selfish; meaning that we give ourselves guilty-free permission to focus on ourselves.
In the preceding process, we need to examine our physical, emotional and spiritual beings in order to establish where we need to stretch and heal; or how we can change and grow. Once we are done examining these areas of our lives, we then discover that we actually don’t have a lot of time dealing with other people’s businesses. Also, considering that the better we become, the more attractive we become to ourselves and to the outside world, it is imperative to take time out for ourselves.
So, how do you become positively selfish?
- Establish how you can improve your physical, emotional and spiritual states.
- Start out by exercising for at least 20 minutes a day. Remember that exercising releases endorphins that reduce stress.
- Come up with a simple daily to-do list that indicates the things that you will do to improve or elevate your emotional and spiritual states
- Spend at least 10 minutes a day, less of interruptions such as TV, cell phones, and think about the things that you WANT to happen in your life.
- Read an empowerment or self-help book for at least 15 minutes every night before you go to sleep. Try Do Not Force It, Tap The Good: an inspirational philosophical book that shares lessons the whole world can live by.
You can take charge of your life my friend by focusing on yourself. Remember that we all deserve to be on top of our game.
