20 Tips for a Positive New Year

•1.       Take a 10-30 minute "Thank You" walk every day.  While walking practice gratitude.  It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

•2.      Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.  Buy a lock if you have to.

•3.      Buy a TIVO, tape your late night shows and get more sleep-it's the ultimate energizer.

•4.      When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement:  My purpose is to ________________ today.

•5.      Live with the 3 E's.  Energy, Enthusiasm, Empathy.

•6.      Read more books than you did in 2009.

•7.      Make time to practice meditation, yoga, tai chi, qigong and prayer.  They provide us with daily fuel for our busy lives.

•8.      Do the "one thing" you have always wanted to do.

•9.      Dream more while you are awake.

•10.  Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less foods that are manufactured in plants.

•11.  Mentor someone and be mentored by someone.

•12.  Engage in daily random acts of kindness.

•13.  Clear your clutter from your house, your car, your desk and let new and flowing positive energy into your life.

•14.  Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control.  Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

•15.  Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn.  Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.

•16.  Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

•17.  Smile and laugh more.  It will keep the energy vampires away.

•18.  Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements:

I am thankful for ________________.

Today I accomplished _______________________________________.

•19.   Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

•20.  Enjoy the ride.  You only have one ride through life so make the most of it and enjoy it.

Have an awesome 2010!

Exercise is one of my keys to real estate success. Forcing myself to get away from the daily rat race of real estate to spend 90-minutes of my day on myself is refreshing. It is great for the mind as well as it clears my mind.
