3 Powerful Life-Hacks To 10x Your Happiness & Success

If you want to change your reality, start by changing your inner dialogue.

If you want to upgrade your life, you have to upgrade yourself.

But this is easier said than done.

Where do you start? What do you change?

That’s why, in this article, I’ll share three life hacks that have helped me significantly improve the quality of my life — both professionally and personally.

1. Upgrade Your Self-Talk

Practicing empowering self-talk is crucial. Over years, the things you repeatedly tell yourself turn into beliefs. And your beliefs shape your reality.

As Muhammad Ali once said, “It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.”

One of the best things you can do in life is to become your own best friend. I know, it sounds a little sad, but it’s not.

Imagine a person who’s with you 24/7, often doubting you, talking you down, and giving you all kinds of disempowering labels. You wouldn’t allow this person near you, right? You’d kick their ass.

Then why do we allow ourselves to be this person?

Most people have such negative self-talk that it keeps them from working towards their dreams and living a fulfilling life.

Stop it.

Yes, it’s good to be real with yourself — you don’t have to make things better than they are — but you really need to stop doubting yourself, talking yourself down, and giving yourself all kinds of disempowering labels.

Become your own best friend. Change the way you talk to yourself. Use empowering self-talk instead of limiting self-talk. Remember, your self-talk turns into beliefs — and your beliefs turn into reality.

If you want to change your reality, start by changing your inner dialogue.

2. Upgrade Your Social Circle

Your social circle has a big influence on your beliefs, habits, and behavior. Especially your inner circle — the few people closest to you.

For example, studies have shown that:

Smokers who have more friends that smoke are less likely to quit compared to those who have fewer friends that smoke
The more alcohol your friends consume, the more alcohol you are likely to consume
Your chance of becoming obese increases 57% if a close friend becomes obese
What these studies have found is no surprise. Learning from others is deeply rooted in our psychology.

As kids, we learn by looking at what other people are doing — our parents, friends, or the idols we admire. We mimic their habits, words, and even clothing.

As adults, this behavior continues. It’s often subconscious, but we look at our inner circle for guidance on our lifestyle, habits, and beliefs.

This doesn’t mean you automatically agree with everything your inner circle does — but it does influence your thoughts and behavior, whether you like it or not.

Remember, other people’s behavior is infectious. This can either make your life better or worse, depending on who’s in your inner circle. Choose wisely.

“You are the average of the five people you associate with most, so do not underestimate the effects of your pessimistic, unambitious, or disorganized friends.” — Tim Ferriss

Truth is, some of you reading this are not living the life you want because your social circle is toxic.

You have big goals — maybe you want to start a business, become fit, or retire early — only for your friends to quickly make fun of these ideas.

They don’t do this because they don’t believe in you, they do this because they don’t believe it’s possible themselves.

Therefore, one of the most profound changes you can make in your life is to spend more time with people who spread positivity, have big goals, take massive action, and see opportunities instead of limitations.

If you don’t have these people in your environment, go find them.

Sign up for a business mastermind. Join a badass gym and talk to people. Connect with like-minded people online and meet them in real life.

3. Upgrade Your Skillset

In my years as an entrepreneur, I learned that the amount of money you make is a reflection of the amount of value you bring. And the amount of value you bring is a reflection of the skills you’ve developed.

In other words, if you want to make more money, focus on building skills.

You can kinda view it as a video game. When you play a character in a video game, you usually need to level up before you can defeat the most difficult levels of the game.

Real life works in the same way. You need to level up your character (aka, you) so you can move to the next levels in your career and personal life.

In the real world, leveling up means learning new skills — especially high-value skills. The better you master these high-value skills, the more valuable you become to your organization, clients, or audience.

Examples of high-value skills are:

Coding
Copywriting
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
Email marketing
Social media marketing
Video editing
Sales
Finance
Investing
Blockchain
Entrepreneurship

When you master some of these high-value skills, you’ll be in a strong position to make good money — whether you work for a company, as a freelancer, or as an entrepreneur.

And no, you don’t need formal education from a university to develop these skills.

You can learn these skills for free on YouTube, Medium, or even Twitter.

You can learn them by reading books from top experts in these fields.

And you can learn them by signing up for educational platforms such as SkillShare — where you can learn pretty much any skill you want.

The knowledge is there — waiting for you to be learned.

You see, most people want to make more money. But only a few are willing to invest time and effort into developing the high-value skills that help them make more money.

Be one of those few.
