18 mindset shifts that will change you for the better.

To manage your energy, manage your stress. With less stress, your energy will feel limitless. (Dale Carnegie)

Take the leap. People regret inaction more than action. (Daniel Pink & Daniel Gilbert)

Feel negative emotions. Pain goes away faster when you accept it. (David Hawkins)

Look forward to old age. Happiness usually peaks in our 70s and 80s. (Gallup)

Take care of relationships. They’re the #1 predictor of life satisfaction. (Harvard Study of Adult Development)

Surrender to the flow of life. You’ll be pleasantly surprised where the currents take you. (Michael Singer)

Accept your insignificance. In contrast to the billions of years the universe has existed, we don’t matter much. Hopefully that takes the pressure off. (Oliver Burkeman)

Appreciate the journey. None of this had to happen. (Oliver Burkeman)

Create systems, NOT goals. Goals are arbitrary, systems enforce actions that actual move you in the right direction. (Scott Adams)

Deny your nature at your own risk. If you hear a calling, you better answer it. (Steven Pressfield)

When it comes to ethics, listen to your gut. There’s no such thing as a difficult ethical decision. You immediately know what to do, the only question is if you choose to do it. (a stranger from Dallas)

Question expertise and think for yourself. No one knows what they’re doing. (Tim Ferriss)
