You search something on the internet. You click on a promising result. You visit the site.
Only to be disappointed with the same piece of information which you might have read probably hundreds of times on the internet.
It sucks! Right?
What you need is some refreshing, rejuvenating knowledge. Isn’t it?
While the content here is not 100% original, chances are slim you might have read this before. (except for two sub-headings).
Enough with the talks. You are here for Improving your life!
Let’s Jump right into the steps!
5 Small Steps to Improve your life Starting Today
1. Balance Your Circadian Rhythm
Your circadian rhythm is basically a 24-hour internal clock that is running in the background of your brain and cycles between sleepiness and alertness at regular intervals. It’s also known as your sleep/wake cycle. 
How to balance it?
|Set meal frequency. Schedule and eat your meals at the same time daily.|
|Keeping good sleep hygiene.|
|Avoid excessive exercises. (Doesn’t mean you avoid it totally)|
|Get first lights in the morning. (wake up early)|
2. Let the “Spillover Effect” take you over
A spillover effect is a “secondary effect that follows from a primary effect and may be far removed in time or place from the event that caused the primary effect”. 
Let me explain:
Say, for example, you like to play chess. You tend to play it every day for a year.
What follows next is, gradually you start developing critical thinking skills—this skill then spills over into the rest of your life.
|Your reading improves.|
|You inadvertently become more strategic about your career, sports or even conversation.|
|Maybe you focus on your dating life and this, in turn, causes your social skills to improve.|
|Subsequently, your performance at work improves.|
This is what is called Spill-over effect. Through playing chess, there is an “accumulation of spillover effects”.
Basically, invest your time into building habits which “Spills over”.

3. Accept Failure
Failures are part of life.
You are going to fail many times.
It is OK. Take it with a pinch of salt. Failure is not a statement, it’s a choice. Don’t fall for the lie that failing is bad. Even if you fail, having a positive outlook on it wouldn’t hurt.
It is only a bad thing if you never learn from it.
Learn. Try. Fail. Learn from it. Try Again. Fail Again. Fail Better. Repeat until Success.
Failures are bound to happen when you expand your comfort zone. Accept it.
4. Expand Your Comfort Zone
Ever tried public speaking?
The first time you do it, nervousness wrecks you, you feel utter discomfort.
The second time, you’ll be better…
Third, fourth, fifth time it keeps on getting better. Sooner than later it becomes your familiar territory.
Here, you are expanding your comfort zone.
When you venture out of your zone, it expands.
The idea is to have an ever-growing territory where you can be confident.
The initiation is anxiety-striking. The execution is thrill-filled. The result – priceless growth.
|Take small steps to challenge yourself daily.|
|Visualize yourself succeeding.|
|Invent new ways to do things.|
Keep on expanding your comfort zone and nobody can stop you from reaching the Top 1%.
5. Keep a “Success Book”
What exactly is “Success Book”?
It is nothing but an ordinary notebook/diary/journal wherein you keep tabs on every step you take, that improves any aspect of your being.
The “Book of success” serves as a medium to track, plan and achieve your goals. Statistics show people who write down their goals have an 80% higher success rate of achieving them.
Update it once a week, if not daily.
Not only do they help you achieve your goals, they can also double up as an evergreen motivator.
Whenever you feel low, just have a look at all your achievements. It can provide the much-needed boost to morale.
This not only ensures that your daily agenda is really moving you forward, but it’s also an inspiration to you.
Bonus Tip: –
Start this new year with an empty jar. Get some paper notes.
Each week, add a note with a good thing that happened.
Next New Year’s Eve, empty the jar and read about the amazing year you had. 😊
You’ll cherish the good times.
