1 . Travel
The percentage of people who never see the outside world is staggering. If you want to understand how the world works, you need to get outside your bubble.
2 . Get out of your comfort zone
Do something every day that scares you. Better yet, put yourself in the position where you have no choice but to be scared. The higher your tolerance for fear and uncertainty, the more likely you are to be remarkable.
3 . Get inspired daily
Most people go through life without ever getting their heart pumping. Figure out what makes you tick what gets you going and drink from that well daily.
4 . Make yourself wealthy not someone else
Who owns the company you work for? If its not you, then you are working to make someone else wealthy. If youre going to work hard, why not work hard for yourself?
5 . Think Big
Most people aim for what they think is attainable, but in reality, they are only giving in to limiting beliefs. Its just as easy to think big as it is to think small it only takes a small shift in your mindset. Besides, when you think small, you have to compete with everyone else who thinks that way. Think big, and youll be in a class of your own.
6 . Refuse planned obsolescence
Consumer electronics companies make it seem like they worked all fiscal year to come up with these brilliant innovations for the next product release. The truth is that its all a ploy to get you to wait in line for a few lousy gigabytes of memory. These companies purposely release new features very, very slowly.
7 . Explore medical tourism
Guess what? The best doctors in the world are not necessarily in your country. I had $3,000 worth of simple dental work done for $400 in Costa Rica. My dentist spoke perfect English, studied under American professors, and used the same materials as my dentist in New York. Better yet, he gave me a free initial consultation and was open to negotiating on price.
8 . Stop commuting 9 to 5
Sit in traffic? Be jammed into the subway? That sounds like the rat race to me. Find out when you are most productive and where. Go to that place at that time. Maybe it means youre in bed on your laptop until 10 a.m.
9 . Dont rely on doctors
Health professionals with PhDs are products of the machine a reactionary health care system designed to make a profit. Its not their fault they were taught in school how to fix you once youre already broken. True health means being proactive.
10 . Dont rely on the government
Want to take life into your own hands? Dont leave it up to a bureaucracy. If you expect the government to take care of you, its simply not going to happen. If you want to live differently, remember that nobody will look out for your well being like you will.
