5 Principles to Live by Today to Create a Better Tomorrow 🎞️

Your future self will thank you.

I’m a firm believer that opportunities don’t come to people by coincidence.

I’m convinced that you’re responsible for creating your own opportunities every single day.

How you spend today defines the person you’ll be tomorrow. What you do one day at a time eventually makes up your entire life. And ignoring this simple yet crucial rule is why most people live unhappy, unfulfilled lives for decades.

They want to have a healthier body and be in better shape by summer, but they don’t get their ass up in winter. They want to build a profitable digital business and quit their 9-to-5, but they choose Netflix over hustle on weekends. They want a happy, healthy relationship, but don’t go the extra mile for their partner.

They never achieve their dreams, because they choose to get back to sleep instead of getting up and doing the work. I don’t believe that we’re meant to stay the same and live boring lives. As Lou Holtz once said:

“In this world, you’re either growing or you’re dying. So get in motion and grow.”

At our core, boredom is not what we desire. We all want to live meaningful, rich lives. Rich of experiences, love, and fulfillment. But this richness comes at a cost. And the majority isn’t willing to pay the price.

Final Thoughts

Too often, we make life harder than it needs to be.

During the past three years, I read more than 100 self-help books. And I realized that quite often, we ignore the simple yet effective rules to live happier, more fulfilled lives.

You don’t need to waste hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to become a better you. All you need to do is embrace the fact that there’s always room for improvement and tackle once small change at a time.

These five principles are certainly not a cure to everything, but they can indeed be a solution to many of the problems you might be facing:

  • Play the long game: Create a vision that excites you to give your best every single day.
  • Avoid analysis paralysis: Train yourself to be a quick decision-maker and choose to do something over doing nothing.
  • Allow mistakes to be your biggest teacher: Embrace your mistakes and learn from your defeats.
  • Conquer your mornings: Allow yourself to tackle one day at a time and start by creating an energizing morning routine.
  • Treat your body like a temple: Every single day, appreciate the magic of being alive and treat your body accordingly.
