Personal Development, Finance, and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
To change your life, you have to change yourself. To change yourself, you have to change your mindset.
How to change your life in 1 year? You cannot grow unless you are willing to change. Every day is another chance to change your life
Do A Life Audit
Doing a life audit is crucial for pinpointing where to make adjustments and jumpstarting your new journey.
Start by figuring out when you stand in the 8 areas of life—health, finances, personal development, career, relationships, self-care, home life, and free time.
What changes would make the biggest impact in your life for each area?
Make A Mindset Shift
Your mindset is what sets the tone for everything in your life. Changing your mindset is what will change your life. What we think and believe is what we act upon.
Change your perspective—from now on anytime anything negative happens, instead of feeling like a victim, ask yourself what you can control or change.
Create A Vision
Having a vision means we have a clear sense of purpose. It means we have a much larger picture of our business or our life than simply setting and reaching short term goals and tackling problems as they come along.
Visions are driven by passion and dreams, and they are reflected through real efforts to create real results.
Work On Yourself Daily
Once you have your vision, the fog lifts and your road map starts to become clear again.
But nobody is going to drive the car for you—you've got to put in the work to achieve your goals and change your own life.
Consistent, daily practice is how you make that happen. If you watered the plants just a little each day, over time your garden always grew.
Design Your Environment For Success
If you want to change your life, you aren't the only thing that has to change—your environment has to change too. For example, if you always hang out with negative thinking friends, you'll tend to believe the limitations they're setting for you.
However, if you hang out with other "doers" and people who want to see you succeed, there's a much higher chance that you will.
Learn New Skills And Improve Upon Your Existing Ones
Nothing will change your life faster than building new skills. Whatever the case, imagine a year where you start out having a limited skill-set.
Dedicate time during your day to build your skills. Learn them via books, videos, and podcasts, but don't forget to physically practice your skills too.
Enjoy The Process
The whole point of this exercise is to change. That means your thoughts and behaviors, in addition to your surroundings, will change throughout the year.
You may realize that what you initially sought isn't what you want anymore.
Don't get so focused on the process that you lose sight of what you want and most important having fun.
Choose to change. Be serious about change.
Stay safe and healthy! God bless!
To a better you!
