  • Hey guys!

  • Welcome back to Lavendaire.

  • I am sweaty from dancing around for that intro, so I hope you liked it.

  • Today I'm going to talk about positive habits that will change your life.

  • I thought I'd do this one standing, have a little more energy.

  • As you know, we're doing the Habits mini-series right now,

  • and I've shared a ton of habits that have changed my life.

  • I'll list my entire Positive Habits playlist down below.

  • Today I'm going to share five positive habits that I know, for sure, will change your life.

  • And if you've heard some of these before,

  • it's because they're that important that they're worth repeating again and again.

  • And I will keep repeating it until every single person in the world

  • will live with habits like these, okay?

  • So the first positive habit that will change your life is to: Stop playing the victim.

  • Stop complaining.

  • Stop blaming others for your problems or for anything that happens in your life.

  • At the end of the day, no one's life is perfect.

  • We're all dealt a different set of cards,

  • and it really is up to you to do what you can with what you have including your problems or your shortcomings and any of that.

  • It's up to you to use everythingyour gifts, your strengths, and your problems

  • to create something of value, to create something good and beautiful in the world.

  • And it's up to you to be kind despite anything horrible that's happened to you.

  • Another way to say this is: You have to take responsibility for yourself

  • and for your life because you are in control.

  • You are in power of your life and you can shape your life as much as you want to shape it.

  • Some people just live in that mindset of "I'm poor" or "I'm broke".

  • "I wasn't born with all of these things."

  • "Life gave me a bad hand."

  • And they complain and they blame others for their problems.

  • But at the end of the day, nobody's going to change your life but you.

  • So you can either complain about it and do nothing.

  • Or go out there, learn, experience, and improve yourself so that you can get better,

  • create a better self, and create a better life for yourself.

  • One resource that I highly, highly recommend that you guys check out is

  • Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith, and it features the whole Smith family.

  • I'll link the episode down below where they talk about stepping into your control

  • and learning to take responsibility for your life.

  • It's so good.

  • The second positive habit that will absolutely change your life is: Reading books.

  • Okay, I know it's a little obvious and I've said this many times,

  • but honestly: Who is reading every single day?

  • Comment below if you have a habit of reading every single day.

  • I'll be honest.

  • I've been on and off of reading, but when I do, and when I'm consistent with it,

  • I'm impressed with how many books I can get through in a month or a year.

  • And it really isSmall, consistent actions will add up to a huge amount.

  • If you told me to read 50 books at once,

  • I'd be like, "Oh my god, I can't do that. That's impossible."

  • But if you told me to read 10 pages a day, every day, I could do thatit's doable.

  • And eventually, you will have read 50 books.

  • And within even one book is a lifetime of knowledge.

  • There's so much wealth in one book, and there's so many great books out there.

  • I'll list my Favorite Books website page where I list my favorite books,

  • and you can start there.

  • There's just so much out there to learn, so much to

  • No other word for it, but reading is amazing.

  • Go read some more, it will change your lifepositive.

  • The book that I'm currently reading, I highly recommend.

  • It's called "The Richest Man in Babylon".

  • I mentioned this on my Instagram, if you follow me.

  • It is a book that is actually pretty old.

  • It was written in the 1900s or something, and it is set in ancient Babylon.

  • It teaches you all of these financial habits, financial wisdom.

  • And it's a book that I truly believe every person out there must read,

  • because I feel like a lot of people complain that they're poor.

  • They don't know how to make money.

  • They don't know how to keep money.

  • They don't understand why some people are so wealthy and some people are not.

  • And it really is knowledge.

  • The money is out there for you to make,

  • and if you have the knowledge of how to get it, how to keep it, how to grow it,

  • then you'll be so much better off than most people in this world.

  • You'll be financially free, which is what I want for all of you out there.

  • So read this book: The Richest Man in Babylon.

  • The third positive habit that will change your life is: Cultivating more gratitude in your everyday life.

  • This is the one that I repeat over and over again,

  • because if you are not practicing daily gratitude, you need to,

  • because if you wake up grateful for each day and end your day grateful for your day,

  • grateful for your life, everything that you have, you'll be infinitely happier of a person,

  • just because gratitude is the key to happiness.

  • It is just something that we forget sometimes.

  • We brush over gratitude sometimes like,

  • "Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm thankful BUT I want more, more, more.

  • I want to get this, and I want to get that."

  • We're so focused on our desires and what our ego wants.

  • But if you take a step back and truly take time to be grateful every single day,

  • it will definitely change your life, and that's why,

  • in my Artist of Life Workbook and in my Daily Planner,

  • I have a gratitude journal page, I have the gratitude section.

  • It's so important to do gratitude journaling.

  • And it doesn't have to be hard.

  • It could just be like, in the morning you state three things you're grateful for

  • or you do that in the evening,

  • where you just write in your journal, a few things you're grateful for each day.

  • And each day, come up with different things.

  • Be specific.

  • And you find that, the more that you list that you're grateful for,

  • the more you have to be grateful for.

  • What you focus on grows.

  • So if you focus on your gratitude, it's gonna grow,

  • and it naturally will bring more abundance and positivity into your life.

  • #4 is Meditation.

  • This is habit that I've been doing for the past five or six years,

  • but it's still tough for me to do it consistently each day.

  • But when I am good at meditating, I notice I sleep better, I'm less stressed,

  • I'm more in-tune with my body and my purpose, I'm more aligned to what I want,

  • I get creative ideas more often, and I'm able to enter the creative flow and be really productive.

  • There are so many benefits to meditating.

  • And if you feel off, if you just feel distracted and you find yourself being on social media a lot,

  • wasting a lot of time, try meditation because that will help you hone your mind.

  • If we don't hone our mindit's like a muscleyou lose it.

  • And if your mind is not strong, you give in to distractions easier.

  • You give in to your ego easier.

  • I find that it gets easier to emotionally eat

  • or get stuck on Instagram when I haven't meditated.

  • That's because you haven't trained your mind.

  • You want to develop this habit to train your mind,

  • to be zen, peace, bring it all back to yourself.

  • I keep doing this motion because you want to be grounded.

  • Meditation helps you ground yourself, and there a billion benefits, guys.

  • You should try it if you're not doing it already.

  • Not to mention that meditation helps you strengthen your intuition.

  • If you're an indecisive person or if you're lost or frustrated about your life,

  • then meditating will help you get to know your inner voice,

  • and that true inner voice will become stronger and louder

  • so that you'll for sure know what is the next right decision for yourself.

  • And the fifth positive habit that will change your life is

  • to stop taking yourself and your life so seriously.

  • We tend to overthink, overanalyze, and worry so much.

  • We get stressed out so much and we think that it's the end of the world if this doesn't happen.

  • And we're so caught up in the little things of life that we forget that,

  • in the bigger picture, if you zoom out, many things are insignificant.

  • Most things are insignificant.

  • The only things that matter are love, the people you love,

  • the things you love, and finding joy in your life.

  • We all just want happiness.

  • And if you just want to be happy, then have more fun in life.

  • To have more fun, don't take things so seriously.

  • Be carefree, be more light-hearted.

  • And I know this is easier for some people than others,

  • but I think you can really cultivate that as a muscle too:

  • the muscle of being more carefree and relaxed

  • and finding joy and humor in all the little things in life.

  • Have you ever seen those videos of monks laughing

  • at the most minute things or finding joy in the most little things?

  • I think it's because, when you truly are attuned with yourself and your spirit,

  • then you find that life is not as serious as most people make it out to be.

  • And more things are funny and fun.

  • What I'm trying to say is: Have more fun, stop caring so much about what other people think,

  • stop caring about how you look to others.

  • Just enjoy your time here.

  • Sing, dance, do all the things that make you happy, and that's that.

  • That's what life is about.

  • And honestly guys, you might notice that my energy is more light-hearted here

  • because I literally did a five-minute dance session before filming this video.

  • Do you see the difference that dancing and just living in your joy makes?

  • I care less for this video, but I'm having more fun,

  • and that just emphasizes my last point in this video: Do not take yourself seriously.

  • Alright, I love you guys.

  • Let me know what you think of these habits.

  • What are the positive habits that have changed your life?

  • Let me know down below.

  • My favoritesand I'm going to list them over and over again

  • are journaling, meditating, reading, doing yoga.

  • Anyway, subscribe if you haven't already.

  • Give this video a thumbs up if you liked it.

  • And I will see you guys next time.

  • Bye!
