We’re only about two weeks away before 2024 starts, which means that we can already prepare to apply our future plans for the new year. Each and every one of us has the will to improve himself, and each person has a vast potential given by God. But if we don’t harness that potential, it can go right into oblivion.
Becoming the best version of yourself surely sounds like a fairytale or something many bloggers and YouTubers say just to gather views and money. No, nothing good in life won’t happen to you if you don’t invest time, work, and knowledge. No briefcase full of money won’t magically fall from the sky, regardless of how much you may want it.
We’re not here to tell you that you will indeed achieve success in 2024 just because you want it. We’re here to tell you how you can achieve success only if you’ll be investing enough knowledge, time, and work. It’s all up to you, in the end. Behold our tips:
Take care of your health
It surely sounds like a boring old cliche, but how could you possibly become the best version of yourself if you don’t exist anymore? In other words, if you don’t take good care of your own health, various diseases could kick in, and you can die. That’s why it’s always important to eat as healthy as possible, get enough sleep at night (not in the afternoon), and train your body at the gym or even at home with a few weights and pushups.
Never stop learning
Knowledge is power, and any information you get can be used in one way or another to your advantage. Any small detail about a person could tell you if it’s worth collaborating with that person or not. Therefore, you should always keep learning from any source you can get, whether it’s from a vlog, a book, a documentary, a movie, and so on. Always be curious to find out more about the things you use. For instance, if you like a certain book, don’t hesitate to Google the author’s name to see what else he has done.
You may never know when the information from a book or movie can help you much later in life in ways that you didn’t even dream of.
Share with others
Having empathy is important; it’s what makes us humans. Even sharing your knowledge with the world is a good idea. You may never know when a person can benefit from it. Donate blood at least once every few months if you’re healthy and young. Donate what you do not use anymore instead of selling them for almost nothing. Donate clothes, old gadgets, and even food. You can live very well without the money that you could have earned from selling those items. God will find ways to reward you for everything you give to others for free. You might even find a lot of pleasure in sharing with others.
Stay away from vices
Alcohol, smoking, and drugs can only damage your health, so it’s best to stay as far away from them as you can. Don’t be afraid of saying “no” when someone invites you to a drink. It’s better to stay healthy than for a person to laugh at you. Sure, moderate drinking may be okay, but it’s best not to drink at all.
At the same time, avoiding gambling and sports betting is also very important in life, as such customs could easily become addictions. Numerous people are addicted to gambling and sports betting, which is why they become depressed, broke, and even have suicidal thoughts in some cases.
It’s much better to have something you’ve truly worked for than to risk losing your money for something you don’t deserve.
Whether you’re a believer or an atheist, you must know that science recognizes the power of praying. Praying refers to the hope that a higher power listens and cares about your demands and wishes. If you believe in God, you know very well why you should pray. In Christianity, prayer is an absolute necessity, as you should do it as often as possible. From a scientific standpoint, prayer can renew your body, improve your focus, reduce stress, improve mental health, enhance emotional well-being, make positive changes in brain function, and more.
Learn to invest
Whether we like it or not, we all live in a world governed by money. That means that it’s a must to learn as much about money as possible in order to control them and not be controlled by them. The famous American entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki often manifested his discontent with the fact that we’re not being taught anything about how money works while we’re in school. As a result, most people out there are brainwashed when it comes to money, and they have a very poor financial education. Another major mistake that people make when it comes to money is that they react by emotions. They’re afraid of failure, while when you come to think of it, any successful person out there has failed to some degree. I highly recommend Kiyosaki’s book called “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” as it’s a true financial education textbook.
Investing may be scary at first, but it’s an absolute “must.” Whether you invest in the stock market, real estate, precious metals, or anything else, that’s all up to you. You just need to do it.
