4 Things Successful people do before Bed
Day comes and night falls. Every day we wake up with some new hope for the future. Every night we sleep regretting about the things that did not go well today. Every day, we make promise to ourselves to do something for a better life. However, as day starts we simply get lost in daily activities.
We are doing same things again and hoping for a better life. If we do same things every day, how can we suppose to get different result? Success does not come overnight. It takes constant effort and improvements.
“You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.” ~ Mike Murdock
How can we track that where we are going in life? How can we take control of our life and get what we want?
Again, the answer is to do little every day. Analyze yourself and remind yourself the real purpose of your life before you going to bed every day. If you want to get ahead of crowd, learn to make at least slight improvements in daily life.
The Importance of daily Self Evaluation:
No matter what is your dream, you already have some potential and skills to achieve them. However, no matter how talented you are, you have to take some actions. Evaluate yourself at the end of the day and look over the actions that you made or that you should have made.
“To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.” ~ Henri L. Bergson
Do you evaluate yourself at the end of every day? Do you take time to remind yourself the purpose of your life? Do you grab lessons from mistakes you are making every day?
You cannot change everything in a single day. You have to make progress every day. Make it a habit. Successful people constantly keep track of their progress and keep learning throughout their life.
Check everyday where are you going. You can take control of your life if you can spare 10 minutes for yourself before sleep. Get some time to see if you did something differently today than yesterday. Let us go through the few important things before having a peaceful sleep:
4 Things Successful people do before Bed:
- Realize the purpose of your life: What are your dreams? What is the purpose of your living in this universe? Before you sleep, imagine your life. Have you done anything to get closer to your destination today?
“Champions know there are no shortcuts to the top. They climb the mountain one step at a time. They have no use for helicopters!” ~ Judi Adler
Take a step. What areas of your life ask improvements? It could be your career, relationships, business, finance or health. Pick up your long term goals, plan for it and do it each day.
If you are waiting for more time to start working on your dreams, you will never get it. There will be no time when everything seems to perfect. It is essential to take one-step ahead every day. Small efforts made everyday turns into big achievements.
- Learn from mistakes: Everyone make mistakes but not everyone learn from it. It is human tendency to do the same things everyday to avoid the pain of un-comfort zone. At the end of the day, close your eyes and check what has gone wrong today. What mistake you have made and do you make this mistake constantly?
“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” ~ John Powell
It could be getting up late every day. It could be your harsh words of anger with your family members. It could be having problem while dealing with client or manager. Identify the area of improvement. Until, you are not aware of your mistakes there is no chance to get rid of them.
- Celebrate and Give rewards to yourself: A wise man knows how to live every day. Once moment goes, it never comes back. Think once about your day before sleep. Have you enjoyed? Or you were too busy to find happiness moments? Celebrate each little achievement and give rewards to yourself every day.
“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
Give yourself a pat on the back for whatever good you have done today. Whatever you do, you do for happiness. Therefore, enjoy every single day of your life.
- Let it go: Last but not the least, let your mind be peaceful before sleep. There is no use of regretting for whatever happened today. Once you identify and learn from mistakes, just let it go and forgive your-self.
Do you think about people who treated you bad today? Mahatma Gandhi said, “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong”. Accept as they are. Forgive them and move on.Do not give space to grudges, revenge and hatred in your mind. By thinking a lot about them, you simply waste your energy on the wrong things. As you still have a lot to accomplish in your life, why not to use your energy wisely on important things.
“Every day is one step closer to being stronger than you were yesterday. Now is the time to be strong, so forget what happened in the past and live in the moment. Yes, the past is what made you who you are today, but it doesn’t decide who you will be tomorrow.” ~ alheck
