The first step to building a successful lifestyle is creating the foundations. This is where you make your decisions about what’s important in your life and how you allocate your time, energy, and money. The foundation of any home needs to be strong enough to withstand all the challenges that it will face over its lifetime. The same goes for lifestyle success! Loveshayarii provides many lifestyle blog ideas that lead to success.
There are a number of ways to create the right foundations, but at its core it needs three key ingredients:
- planning and
First you need to commit to your desired lifestyle; this means that despite any barriers life throws in front of you, you keep on going with your long-term plan for success. You also need a good plan. Without one there is no way to measure progress or hold yourself accountable when things go wrong. And lastly, if all else fails make sure someone knows what your goals are! That person can help as both an accountability partner and cheerleader along the way.
Why having a strong foundation matters:
Strong foundations provide stability when faced with difficulties or chaos in our lives. If we have nothing else supporting us, it’s almost impossible not to break down or give up under pressure. Building these pillars of confidence will help you feel like you can do anything and everything!
Mindsets are built from habit over time so if one day I decided my goal was to be more confident today, but had no idea how I would go about doing this because every other day of my life I had felt like a shy and insecure person, I would have to change my habits.
The first step is to identify what type of confidence you want in your life:
This comes from within yourself without any external influence so it’s the most stable form of self-confidence. This can be learned by mastering skills or competencies that provide us with feelings of mastery such as cooking a new recipe, starting up a business, learning an instrument etcetera.
These are our beliefs about how others perceive us which makes this much more fragile than internal confidence because we need outside validation for these thoughts; people like our friends’ opinions on their Instagram feed or someone telling us at work that we’re a good worker
So if I was looking for external confidence, the first thing to do would be build my self-confidence while also focusing on building my social skills.
How can you start working towards your goals? Begin by setting SMART Goals
Write down what it is you want and who it’s benefiting without being too vague (e.g., “I will lose weight”)
Establish how much progress has been made with daily or weekly measurements so there are clear benchmarks of success (E.G., When I have lost X pounds)
Make sure these goals are mutually agreed upon between yourself and whoever you’re accountable to
Your goals should be realistic and not too difficult or impossible; it’s important for the goal to seem attainable so there is motivation (E.G., My SMART Goal is to lose weight by running on a treadmill every other day)
Make sure your goals have an end date with a specific time when they need to be completed, this forces you into action and helps create urgency around the goal being accomplished.”
