“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
Ernest Hemingway

.
There are many of us who strive to improve our selves and our lives. The good news is, contrary to popular belief, we do not have to make drastic changes in order to notice an improvement in the quality of our life.

.
At the same time, we do not need to wait a long period of time to see the measurable results that come from taking positive action. All you have to do is take small steps, and take them consistently.

.
Make a list of 20 small things that you enjoy doing, and make sure that you do at least one of these things every day for the next 100 days. Your list can include things such as the following:

.
Eating your lunch outside.

.
Calling your best friend to chat.

.
Taking the time to sit down and read a novel by your favourite author for a few minutes .

.
Stop complaining for the next 100 days. A few of years ago, Will Bowen gave a purple rubber bracelet to each person in his congregation to remind them to stop complaining.“Negative talk produces negative thoughts; negative thoughts produce negative results”, says Bowen. For the next 100 days, whenever you find yourself complaining about anything, stop yourself.

.
Decide to set your alarm one minute earlier every day for the next month. On waking up make sure that you get out of bed as soon as your alarm rings, open the windows to let in some air, and do some light stretching.By the end of the month you will have gained an extra 30 minutes to start  your day.

.
Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Create a list of 20 healthy, easy to prepare meals which you like that can be eaten for lunch or dinner. For the next 100 days, instead of sugary, fizzy drinks, drink water.

.
Choose a book that requires effort and concentration and read a little of it every day, so that you read it from cover to cover in 100 days.

.
Improving your life for the better begins with You. Taking small steps in the right direction can bring about important changes…..Commit to starting today.

.
“If you will change everything will change for you. Don’t wait for things to change. Change doesn’t start out there, change starts within.…All change starts with you.”
Jim Rohn
