Tips to become successful in life

Don’t we all want to become successful in life? Yes, this would be the goal of many. But unfortunately, we often get in our own way.

Whether it be values we learned in childhood or repeating the same unproductive behavior patterns, there are ways to change and still become successful in life if you are willing to do the work.

Many successful people did not turn into huge successes overnight. They failed, got back up, worked hard and now they are crushing it.

One key component in your quest to becoming successful is to remember that your circumstances do not define you. YOU make you.

So in order to become more successful, you have to look inside yourself. You have to believe in yourself and you must -above all- stay positive.

It is true, you can choose to look at things from any perspective you wish. But why not choose to look for the silver lining and be a “glass half full” type of person.

If you want to stay strong, you can’t sit around feeling sorry for yourself. You have to push through adversity and become the “you” you have always dreamed you would be.

Its true excuses will get in your way and you will feel uncomfortable for a while as you push out of your comfort zone.

Even if you want to talk yourself out of it and you can think of 50 reasons why you can’t be successful, you must push through your negative thoughts and make your life the life you have always dreamed of.

Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Decor Ideas Under $25

Rustic Farmhouse Christmas decor reminds me of my childhood. My grandma always had a Christmas city, a wreath on her door, and cute little wooden signs around her house. I remember how warm and inviting her house felt at Christmas time.

What Christmas decor look are you going for this year?

I personally love all of the rustic farmhouse Christmas decor ideas I keep seeing in stores and magazines. However, if you aren’t careful, you could end up spending WAY more than planned and blow your Christmas budget because decorating your house for Christmas can really add up.

And most of us are already spending more than usual on Christmas presents, Holiday parties, and travel so spending a lot on decorations isn’t going to work.

I personally prefer to buy items after Christmas when store sales are at their lowest. I have started to build up a collection of Christmas decorations shopping this way.

However, all the items included in my list below are under $25 so it should be easy to find something affordable.

Therefore, if you are just starting out or changing up your look to farmhouse rustic, these budget decorations can definitely get you started this year. 

The best part, they are all under $25 and can be shipped right to your front farmhouse porch.

Elf on the Shelf has become so popular in the last few years that it is hard not to participate in all the Elf on the Shelf craziness.

My son came home from school last year and asked why we don’t have an elf. I tried to avoid it as long as possible, but this year our little elf is going to make his appearance.

It is a nice reminder that Santa is watching and can help with discipline at least for the month of December. -maybe I should leave it out all year! hehe

So since I’m going to join in on this “Elf on the Shelf” craze, I along with you, need some ideas because I like to plan ahead.

My fellow bloggers have come up with some super cute and creative ideas in this roundup post.

Many of these ideas are simple and cute. They will have your little ones talking about their elf all day and give them something to look forward to each morning.

Just remember to keep it simple and have fun with it! Don’t let this little elf stress you out this year and use these Elf on the Shelf ideas to make your life easier.
