Follow These 5 Life Hacks & You Will Have What You Want

You’re tired.

You’re wondering.

You’re waiting.

And oh my, are you WORRYING.

When is it going to happen?

If it’s this challenging, what’s the point?

“When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

I don’t know who initially said this, but the words couldn’t be more accurate.

Going after what you want for your life can feel uncomfortable. It’s because you’re going after something you’ve yet to experience.

Our mind tells us we need to play it safe, to stick with what we know.

Many studies say that the heart generates an electromagnetic field up to 5,000 times stronger than the brain. So why not follow our heart?

Because we’ve been programmed to follow our head, to follow what we can explain.

Following your heart can, and often does, defy logic. This is why it can be challenging for many of us to pursue what it is we want.

I’ve been there.

I’ve been where you are; wondering, waiting, and worrying.

I still go there on occasion, but I don’t stay.

Because I know how to keep going, to NEVER give up.

And now I’m going to share with you five life hacks that will help you persevere and achieve your dreams.


Get clear and map out actionable steps to achieve what you want.

Then take action, and keep taking action!

Self Discipline

Make sure how you’re spending your time is in alignment with what you want for your life.

As an example, if you want to lose weight but you often eat cupcakes, then achieving your ideal weight won’t happen as quickly, right?


How do you feel about what you want?

What is your “why”? Stay focused on what lights you up!


When you feel yourself becoming discouraged, choose to shift your feelings.

Choose to focus on how you feel already having achieved what you want. This will help keep you in a positive mindset.


You won’t have what you want in life if you don’t believe you can have it. Period.

Believe not only that you can achieve it, but that you also deserve it — Because you do!

There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING that your heart desires that you are not capable of achieving.

It’s important to focus on your journey, not just the destination. The steps along the way are what create the result.

Don’t EVER give up, because you can have EVERYTHING you want.

Now that you’re going to set yourself up for success by following these life hacks, guess what?


Are you ready to do what it takes to achieve what you want for your life?
