I know it’s cringe-worthy, but the whole concept of ‘YOLO’ is true. At the end of the day, you only get one life, and the outcome of it all completely depends on whether you grab life by the horns, or not. We all have good and bad days, but it’s paramount that you only focus on the good. Every day, we have awful things happening in the world, and whilst you should definitely grieve upon these moments and ensure that you take note of the tragedies in the world, you can’t dwell on the negative too much. Be grateful for life, appreciate what you’ve got and go out there with every ounce of life that you have by following these five steps!
- Ignore Things That You Can’t Change
This doesn’t mean adopt a poor attitude convinced that nothing in life can be determined by you, because it can. However, there are some things in life that can’t be changed, such as a loved one passing away or being born with a disability. You just need to make light of it!

In hard times, seeing the positive is always very challenging, but you should always remember that after a hurricane comes a rainbow.
- Make a Bucketlist
Life can literally flash before your eyes, with months passing by before we even had a chance to acknowledge them. This can become quite frightening, especially when you notice an entire season has been and gone and you’ve hardly done anything outside the box the entire time. Therefore, we highly suggest creating a bucketlist, as this way, you can keep track of what you want to do to keep your life exciting. It can be as short or as long as you like, from 10 items to over 100 – it completely depends on how much adventure you want to have in your life!
- Do Something Every Day That Makes You Happy
Most of the time, bucketlists are full of very extravagant things, from bungee jumps to swimming with sharks, but you don’t always need to travel far or push yourself to live your life to the fullest. In fact, the little things in life are just as important. Every day, try to do something that makes you happy, such as wearing your all-time favourite jumper or buying your favourite fancy coffee from the café on the corner. These are very small acts, but they can provide you with just as much fulfilment as a giant excursion in the Amazon. Plus, to make the most out of these little things, why not keep a journal and update it with five things that have made you happy that day? That way, you can truly appreciate all aspects of life.
- Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
When stuck in your own ways, it can become second nature to say no to big, overwhelming opportunities. But, some of the best experiences in life come from agreeing to things that you’d normally reject. Stepping out of your comfort zone can seem terrifying, especially when you’re a comfort fiend who lives off of feeling confident within their own zone. It’s crucial to start saying yes to big opportunities! Do you want to start managing the company? Yes! Want to come to Australia and back pack around the country with us? Definitely! You might never get those chances ever again!
- Live in the Moment
We live in a world now where digital gadgets are stuck to us 24/7, and most people aren’t able to leave the house without their mobile phones. Because of this, we can often get distracted from what’s really important – living life! Even when visiting a completely new country, you can get carried away by the gorgeous landscapes and just snap away with your camera for hours. Sure, take a few photos! But, you need to find that balance of putting the gadgets away and fully absorbing the beauty of this Earth in person. After all, you do only live once.
