    Change your life by changing the small things you do.
    This is what i've started and my day has a different ring to it.

    1. I wake up an hour earlier each day (I loved sleeping in and being late to work each day)

    2. Now that i'm awake earlier, I've started walking and jogging for 30 minutes every morning.
    This makes me feel great, invigorated in two ways - I've managed to action an idea I had (to walk/jog in the morning), and i'm being physically better for it (I wanna tone up before the Australian summer).

    3. By getting up earlier, I dont have an excuse to get to work late, in fact i've been getting in before everyone else.
    I now feel better in that (even though I hate my job at the moment), i'm sticking it to the other staff here by beating them in, i'm also having more free time by finishing stuff earlier - no interruptions when no-one is here which mean more www.sosuave.com time.

    4. I'm losing more weight by walking/jogging - which means i've decided to eat better. I'm looking better, and by looking better i'm feeling better about myself.
    It doesnt change my looks, what matters is that i'm happy I look better.
    Now that I feel i'm looking better, i'm happier and I feel more confident about MYSELF. No-one else.

    5. With all this confidence about myself, I dont seem to care that much what other people think at the moment. I feel like i'm my own man with a mission (dont know what the mission is yet, but i'm laying the foundation for something BIG), and I act like it.

    6. With this look of a man on a mission, people are taking notice. Workmates, friends etc. I look like I have ambition, I look like i'm happy, I look like i've got a lot to offer and I really dont look like I need anyone.

    7. With this look I'm now portraying, people want to get to know me, not everyone wants to know me for long - i'm still a human and I still have my flaws - part of being a perfect man is to have flaws. So not everyone is interested in me, but alot of people are. But that doesnt matter, as I dont care what other people think of me. I'm happy being myself.

    8. So being happy with being myself, i've decided to start accomplishing other stuff i've kept putting off, and by doing this - i've increased my confidence in myself (is there anything I CANT DO? - I just installed a new kitchen in my house with no instructions and I have no carpentry skills! - and yeaas, it does look good, just like the catalogue)

    There are still heaps I have to do with my life for me to consider it lived worthwhile with no regrets.
    Many things I want to try.
    But i've made a small start...a simple start, I decided I was going to wake up an hour earlier and go for a jog and walk.
    The little things you do lead to bigger things, and its the little things you plan that are easier to start on.
    Start on something new today, no matter how small - but its gotta be somthing you've been putting off for a long time. Then watch your enthusiasm and confidence in yourself grow as you accomplish it.

    This information is absolutely magnificent in that it tells people to be concerned with their selves, which is probably the main purpose of this club! The more individuals focus on themselves, the greater confidence they will achieve to do whatever it is they desire to do with their lives.

    Good Post DonJoey,

    I am trying the same thing. Focus on yourself with doing small things first then expanding on to greater things. I like the hour earlier wake up to do a jog/walk, great idea.

    Good luck in your pursuits,

    Great motivational speech. You would make a great motivationalist.

    You're a man on a mission friend, good thing you've helped some of us other Don Juans put our life into track by a simple changing.

    Small changes do matter, they can affect our life as we know it.

    Just trying to give back a little something...they say youth is wasted on the young, but I say "Experience is wasted on the experienced" especially if they dont try and pass it on. The simple stuff makes sense.

    Good post.
    This is the very first thing that a DJ should accomplish. Get the motivation and the control of your own life and as the most important thing: Enjoy it!
