“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.” - Ferdinand Foch
Are you tired of the “status quo?” Do you want to take your life to the next level?
It is quite easy to get caught up in the everyday “hum drum” routine of life. Most of us have a daily, tightly fitted routine. If anything goes wrong or falls out of place, many times it will cost us our entire day. Let’s be honest, no one is exempt from the daily “grind.”
However, what if there was a way to add some spice to your life? What if you could add some simple strategies that would help progress your life in a positive direction?
What Fires You Up?
When you look at your daily routine, what fires you up?
What peaks your interest? What puts a smile on your face? What moves you to do things you never thought would have been possible?
For my athletes and those who love athletics, think about the excitement surrounding the sport. Whether you are a producer or listener of music, what types of feelings come to mind when you think of your favorite song? If you are techie, what feelings do you embody when new, sensational technology hits the market?
We all get fired up about something, but why should it be a seasonal deal?
I would like to share 3 easy ways you can fire up your life daily. The key word is daily!
3 Easy Ways to Fire Up Your Life Daily
1. Start your day with positive energy
Waking up at the last minute and making a mad dash for your job may not be the right way to start you day. Of course, we all want as much sleep as possible. Matter fact, we need our sleep. Don’t believe me, check out the The Benefits of Sleep.
With a little planning, you may find some extra time to fire up your life. I like to start my day with prayer, reading my Bible, or both. It is the best way to start my day. After consulting with the Creator of all things, I feel more equipped to handle the challenges of the day.
Here are a few other ways to start your day off with positive energy:
- Read a motivational quote or blog every morning,
- Conversation with our spouse (if he or she is awake),
- Cuddle with your spouse or kids (if they are he or she is sleep),
- A few minutes reading your favorite book,
- Enjoying nature while walking your dog, cat, or just walking by yourself,
- Watching a few minutes of your favorite morning show,
- Calling another friend who is awake (please do not call someone who is sleep, unless it is necessary),
- Exercising first thing in the morning,
- Spend a few minutes listening to your favorite music,
- Kiss those you love before leaving the house.
2. Help someone other than yourself
Are you helping anyone other than yourself?
One of the greatest feelings in the world is helping someone else. We help ourselves everyday, but there will always be someone in need.
“We were created to serve.”
One reason why serving someone else is a big deal is because teaches you that it is not about you. Also, it gives the server a better sense of humility. With humility comes better perspective. Better perspective will allow you to see your day in a positive light. With your day now in more of a positive light, now it is time to get fired up about life.
3. Review your life goals
Where are you plan on going in life? Do you have life goals?
If you don’t have life goals, you will need to create your life goals. It may sound complicated, but creating or reviewing your life goals is a great way to infuse some fire into your life. Why?
There is nothing like knowing if you are headed in the right direction or not.
If you are headed in the right direction, reviewing your life goals should spark some excitement for you to do more of what has already made you successful. If you are not headed in the right direction, reviewing your life goals should stimulate some urgency for you to do something difference to obtain success.
No matter how successful you are, you will always need some fire in your life. Fire stimulates, triggers, and incites. What needs stimulating in your life?
