5 Radical Things You Can Do Right Now To Change Your Life

It’s time to quit bitching about all the things that are going wrong in your life and do something drastic to change it.

Here are 5 radical things you can do right now to change your life:

1. Pummel a mission statement into your psyche – Whether you want to be an established writer, or the pioneer of a warp drives and faster than light travel, ingrain your mission statement into your brain! If you keep forgetting it, put reminders all over your house, car and even stick a post it on your dogs nose so every time you look into it’s cute eyes, you’ll be reminded of it. When you do this you’ll find that laziness and lethargy disappear.

2. Be bold and just frickin’ do it – An amazing friend of mine recently quit her job, put her flat on rent and went to China to TEFL. Of course she was scared; she had doubts towards the end; but I get regular emails from her and she’s loving it. What would’ve happened if she didn’t take that big step?

3. You know that business you’ve always wanted to start? Well, here’s a novel idea, START IT! – These days setting up a company takes about 5 minutes and barely requires any effort. But if you’re going to do it seriously have a game plan but just make sure you start. Reserve your new company name today!

4. Where you’ve been rejected repeatedly…here’s another new concept for wo/mankind…try again! I finally got my ballot place in the London Marathon after 5 continuous years of trying. I didn’t give up and even though this year they decided to stop the old ballot system, I still managed to get my place. I kept the faith and I persevered like a stalker!

5. If you’re down you really do need to think about those with less than you! – I want you to try and see how long you can survive with a blindfold on. Go on, try your daily chores. Or, tie both hands behind your back, and see how you survive without assistance…try and find a way to brush your teeth!?! It will radically change your perspective on life.

What are you waiting for?

What else have you done to change your life in a radical way?

    Hi Amit,
    I admire your tenacity on finally being accepted into the London Marathon. Most would have given up. I’m also very appreciative of the times we live in when entry into starting a business has never been easier.

    • Amit Sodha says:

      Thanks Gordie, I genuinely thought I’d never make it, especially when I got the email about the changes to the system but I thought I’d try one more time and what d’ya know, I got my place!

      Thanks so much for the message!

  2. Congratulations on getting into the marathon, you’ve been after that a while, it must really feel great to finally have that desire satisfied.

    Been reading your blog nearly 2 years now, and you never cease to amazing and inspire me. I look forward to your blog posts each week. If I finally make it to London to visit my family I’ve got to see you perform on stage someplace.

    Namaste

    Yeah, just go ahead and do it. If it’s something you really want then you WILL succeed…I’m talking from experience! The reason you WILL succeed is simple. You desire it more than anything so you are working hard to make it work. Add a little faith, confidence, courage and positivity. That’s life!

  4. Amit,

    Congratulations on making it in to marathon finally! I knew you could do it. I like #2, just do it advice. Many time we will not know outcome until we do it.

    I like the changes to website also, looks neat! How is life?

    • Amit Sodha says:

      Hey Preeti, life is awesome as you can tell and I’m glad you like the changes, you’re the first to mention it. I deliberately didn’t say anything so it’s good to know they’ve been received well. I’ve just filmed my first part in a TV show and I’ve got a few in the pipeline coming up soon! How about you?

  5. Samuel says:

    Good for you on your marathon. It should make you a better person because you won’t have that wall of fear holding you back from other things. Maybe sky diving or bungee jumping is the next thing you’ll do? I know doing that really helped me break down that wall.

    You’re right about starting a business. Ownership and being productive is important in life, especially for men. Plus, it will hopefully teach you how to be thrifty in your personal life. Unfortunately, lots of people think that they should spend their way into debt with their business.
