By following the eight tips below, you can achieve significant results this year that you will be thankful for at the end of 2022. At Midway Gentleman, we regularly write about topics that help you improve your lifestyle. In a previous article, we wrote about ten things everyone needs to know about etiquette.
1. Cliche, but start focusing on your body
Taking care of your body is not just about training but also about dieting. The sooner you start taking care of your body, the sooner the result will come. The best time to start was yesterday. The second-best day is today.
Many people recommend you start going to the gym. If you want to achieve the best results, we advise it as well – but if you don’t like going to the gym, you won’t be consistent, and you won’t achieve great results. Start doing an exercise you enjoy, and you will achieve your goals with joy.
Dieting is another aspect of life where many people have a problem. Making your food at home is not only cheaper but healthier and tastier too than the usual takeaway food. There are dozens of recipes and tutorials online where you can learn new ways to make your everyday dishes healthier.
2. Start doing challenges
If you have difficulty in certain areas, start doing it more. The more you are doing difficult tasks that are outside your comfort zone, the more you will grow. One goal for me was to set up 12 challenges for 2022. These challenges include various self-improvement and environmental-related challenges.
I will write more about my progression with these challenges. The first challenge for me is to read more. Nowadays, we like to get everything instantly, from the food at restaurants to the information on social media. That’s why I want to take a step back, slow down, and read more books to digest information in the old-fashioned, more detailed way.
3. Stop worrying about what others are thinking – be more confident
The older I get, the more I realize that the more you think about what others are thinking, the worse you will feel about yourself. Stop worrying about what others think about you, and do what makes you happy. In most cases, people don’t even think about you. They have their own life and problems. If you would like to improve your confidence, we wrote about nine tips that you can do to improve it.
4. Dress better
Dress to impress. We are confident that you want people to think about you in a certain way. Style is the best way to show a piece of your personality without saying a word. If you want to look intelligent and confident, wear formal clothes and accessories.
If you want to dress more youthful, wear jeans and a T-shirt. Buying new clothes will make you more confident. Now is the time to experiment with different styles and items. Develop your fresh style and stick to it the whole year. If you feel confident in the clothes you wear, it will affect your overall self-confidence.
5. Start a side hustle
I bet you were dreaming about starting a side hustle or small business at least once in your life. If you were waiting for a sign, now’s the time. You might not believe, but Midway Gentleman was started as a side hustle too, and now it is our main source of income, thanks to you and our partners. In the age of data, you can learn a new skill that you can sell online, either as a service or a product. Learn something you’ve always been interested in and start doing it as a side hustle. There are many websites offering great online classes, but if you are just starting out, YouTube can be the perfect place.
6. Write down and start to execute your goals
I always write a lot of goals at the end of each year that I will execute next year. I highly recommend this to you. Write big goals, write small goals, break down big goals into steps, and start completing them.
Writing down your goals is beneficial not only at the end of the year but throughout the year too. When goals are written down you are more likely to intellectually engage and emotionally connect with the result of the goal you want to achieve. Hence, you are more likely to achieve them.
7. Start learning more
You can never know enough about the world. Especially now when data and information are the most important assets of life. Start reading books, listening to podcasts, watching videos, reading articles about topics you already know and topics you know nothing about.
The more knowledge you are familiar with, the more your worth is. Who knows, you may find a new job thanks to your new understanding, or at least have some interesting facts that your friends will like.
8. Start taking risks
There’s no reward in life without risks. So many people are afraid of taking risks because they are fearing failure. Failures can be beneficial if you deal with them the right way. Successful people usually fail hundreds of times before they succeed. Yet, many people tend to forget it and only focus on their success. Start taking risks and see what life holds you outside your comfort zone. Remember – the comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.
At last, if you follow the tips above, you will achieve significant results by the end of the year, and this will be your best year ever. If you like what you read, check out our social media pages for more content like this, you’ll find the links below.
