Three Key Actions to Level Up Your Life

If you want to reach your full potential, you need to level up your life. You need to take your life to the next level. And you need to do that constantly.

I know this is easier said than done, but the reward makes it well worth the effort. You will have a fulfilling life. You won’t have any lifetime regret.

So, how can we level up our lives?

I believe there are three key actions you should take for that. The three actions are:

  1. Upgrade your beliefs
  2. Be disciplined
  3. Take risks

Let’s look at them one by one.

1. Upgrade Your Beliefs

Your beliefs are the force behind your actions. They are powerful because they influence your actions subconsciously.

Your beliefs are like trees and your actions are like the fruits. As long as the tree is there, it will keep bearing fruit. That’s why it’s important that you change your beliefs if you want to change your actions.

To do that, you need to identify the negative beliefs that hinder you. The beliefs could be about your ability (“I can never do that”) or your environment (“the situation is hopeless”). What are they in your case?

Next, you need to replace them with positive beliefs. A good way to do that is by changing your self-talk. Make affirmations that fit the positive beliefs.

2. Be Disciplined

Your habits can make you or break you. That’s why it’s essential that you build good habits in your life.

Building good habits requires self-discipline. Why? Because you will need to overcome your mood. That way you will do what you are supposed to do regardless of how you feel.

So build your self-discipline. Learn how to be miserable. As Mark Twain once said:

“Do something every day that you don’t want to do; this is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain.”

3. Take Risks

While being disciplined is about doing regular things, taking risks is about doing new things. Being disciplined is like making your root grow deeper, but taking risks is like spreading your branches to new places. You need both of them to live a full life.

Without taking risks, you will only stay in your comfort zone. You will only do things that you are comfortable with.

Let’s say you don’t feel comfortable meeting new people. In this case, taking risks means going out there and meeting new people. That’s uncomfortable, but you do it anyway.

Your belief plays an important role here. If you see taking risks as a way to embarrass yourself, you wouldn’t do anything. But if you see it as an adventure, you would be eager to do new things.

***

Those are the three key actions to level up your life: upgrade your beliefs, be disciplined, and take risks. Do them and you will be on your way to reaching your full potential.

  5. Hi Donald, thank you once again for the super easy-to-read and to-the-point post.

    I particularly like your analogy with the beliefs being like the tree and action being the fruits. And what I’d love to add is that those fruits are what we consume, we are what we eat and our actions form habits, which control our lives.

    I look forward to your next post, until next time!
