Everyone dies, but not everyone truly lives. Today we will show you the other 50 ways to live your life to the fullest.
If you’re existing and not living, then it’s time to do so. Do you want to be remembered how you died or how you lived? We live in a time that’s filled with abundance, prosperity, and infinite opportunities. Don’t let this God-given gift turn to ash. Take it while it’s still fresh.
50) Plant A Garden
Planting a garden can have loads of benefits. It is one of the top stress-relieving activities. You get a good workout and healthy sunlight. You also get to eat fresh and healthy veggies and fruits. That’s 3-in-1. I’ll take that any day. Planting a garden can help you cope with loneliness. Research shows that being around plants increases our mood and can make one feel joyful. It can also lower dementia. Now it’s 7-in-1. Just take my money already!
51) Have Plants In Your House
Take everything from #50 minus the exercising and sunlight part. That’s 5-in-1 for free except where you have to buy the plants. That will cost some money, but the benefits outweigh the con by a far margin. Want to increase work productivity, then have plants near your work area. Plants also make the air quality better, healthier, and fresher around you.
52) Forgive Yourself And Others
Stop holding grudges and vengeance. It’s only hindering you from fully enjoying life to the fullest. I’ve lived with a gigantic grudge-filled with vengeance, blood, wickedness, and pure hatred. The moment I forgave those who sinned against me, I felt a surge of bad energy just vanished from my body. I’m telling you from experience. The strong are the ones that forgive. The weak hold on because they believe it gives them meaning but in reality, it’s causing more harm than they realize.
53) Be Confident
Being confident means that you believe in your abilities and/or appearances. It shows strength, assertiveness, and dominance. Women love this trait in men, and weak men bend to their knees when they see a confident woman. Having confidence takes time and effort. It’s kind of rare to be born with such a trait. One must learn and develop this skill over time. Of course being born tall, good looking, smart, and the likes can give one a huge advantage, but nothing beats hard work.
54) F%&$ Death
Over and over again. Once the fear of death has left your mind, then only the fear of regret starts to replace its presence. Now the only thing you can do is live your life to the fullest. The worst thing in life isn’t living with the fear of death. No, that’s nothing compared to dying with regret. The wealthiest man who dies with regrets is poorer than the poorest man who has died with no regrets. When death becomes the least of your worries or problems, then you will know the true meaning of life. If you live life fearing death then how can you enjoy living? You can’t!
55) Work For Love Not Money
A poll in 2017 conducted by Gallup poll stated that 85% of people hated their job or weren’t content with it. Just like 95% of people are just existing and not truly living. Do you see why and how things correlate themselves? If you dislike your job, then quit. Save your money to open a business or work for yourself. Things probably won’t get any better. Remember, the boss is paying you just enough so you don’t quit while they are racking in most of the profits. I know you have bills and a family to support, but there’s more to life than just slaving your time so someone else can profit off you. You spend about 1/3 of your life working, that’s actually half of your life living in misery if you exclude sleeping. No wonder you’re not living life to the fullest!
56) Do What You Want
Money, luxuries, lust, unlimited booze, and all the pleasures you can consume in one lifetime can be yours if you want it. Who’s going to stop you from such commodities. You, of course. If you really want it that bad then, you’ll find a way to earn it. Busting your ass, sacrificing some things, and going above and beyond may be a requirement but if it’s worth it then go for it. I’ve already found the two things that give me the most value. That is life and me. Don’t listen to anyone that says you can’t have it. This is your life. Write your book and fill it with captivating chapters. You’re the author, no one else is.
57) Stop Caring About What Others Think of You
There are over 7.6 billion people on planet earth. That’s a lot of worrying and caring to do. You better start now so you can please everyone. When you die, make sure you die with full of regrets and self-hatred. What a life! Who gives a flying F about what Sarah or Bob thinks of you. Unless they are going to hand you a suitcase full of freshly baked Benjamin or 3 wishes then to hell with them. If you really want to feel worthy and impressed, then start impressing yourself. Believe me, once you stop giving an F about what others think, then your life will have even more significant meaning.
58) Please Yourself Not Others
Like #57 but this time work on yourself. Do you value other people’s appearances, life, and business? You should not, and if you do, then that’s just weird as hell. Start working out. Read a book every day. Educate yourself and explore the unknown. It amazes me how people want to impress others because they think that affection from others gives them happiness and a sense of meaning or pride. You can find all that within yourself. I am never content with myself, you know why? It is because I strive for perfection or at least to go beyond my natural God-given limits. Only death can stop me from improving myself. Live life for you, not for others.
59) Lose Weight (If You’re Overweight)
You know it’s killing you and causing numerous mental and physical anguish, yet you continue to do as it commands. I’m talking about surrendering your life and willpower to food, laziness, and comfort. Everyone wants glory, but not everyone will die for it. If you like being overweight then more power to you. However, here are the 59.5 trillion negative health effects of being overweight. Big bones don’t jiggle, so don’t get your hopes up. I’ve seen some very joyful beings who are overweight, but that could be a disguise.
60) Listen To Music Every Day
Music is life. Music has been a part of our lives since who knows. Even animals love music. It just goes to show how powerful music really is. Listening to music can increase your work out 15% more efficiently, reduce stress, makes you feel joy, and can help with work or studies. To date, I’ve never met or knew anyone that didn’t like music. To be honest, I can’t fathom living in a music-less world. Would you? Listening to music every day is good for you. I guess some things in excess can be ok.
61) Embrace Change
The world is changing as we speak. It is inevitable. Accept change and live for the future, or don’t and live in suffering. What is inevitable cannot be stopped especially if it is a way of life. If you want the ’70s or ’80s to come back, then you’re incredibly delusional. Such a thing will never happen. If you expect to live a good life, then embrace change. I love change, you can ask Obama!
62) Work On Your Dreams
The best dreams are the ones that give us meaning. The others are useless and clutter up our minds. If you haven’t figure out what the meaning of life is, then try chasing your dreams. Make it happen, make it a reality. There, you shall find meaning and purpose to your life. We all have dreams. Some of us keep dreaming while the rest of us get up and make it real.
63) Don’t Listen To Everything You Hear
CNN and Fox News are worth multi-billions of dollars. They’re also owned by our government, so that right there is a big red flag. Would you rather hear a good lie or a hurtful truth but here’s the thing. You actually don’t know if it’s a lie or the truth. So you just accept it as the truth. There are 4200 religions in the world. The bible has so many stories that were excluded in the book. The story of Judas in the bible vs. the story of Judas as a stand-alone have two different versions? HMMMMPPPPHHHH. (I’ve read both versions) People write and show you want they think you want to hear, not what needs to be heard.
64) Take Risk
Life itself is a gamble, and we all are winners. The chances of you being born are 1 in 400 trillion or 0%. So if anyone asks you have you ever won the lottery, the better say yes. If you take small risk, you get rewarded with small rewards, but at the same time, you won’t lose much. However, if you take significant risk them be prepared to win big or lose big. Don’t be a fool either. Know your odds and take your earnings before you lose it all. Every day, 150,000 people take a risk that cost them their lives. I’ve already won the biggest risk in life, so there’s no risk too big for me anymore. (Being born.) To make it to the very top, you must take risk. That’s a billion dollar advice I just gave you, for free without tax!
65) Don’t Let The Bad Things Affect You
$hit happens every day. If you’re still alive and well then you’re lucky. Now, if you’ve lost a limb or have been hurt physically and mentally, then that’s another story. Good things happen, and bad things happen. Every day to everyone. Enjoy the good vibes and use the bad ones to shape and improve yourself. Some people are blind, deaf, missing limbs, and so on, yet they are happy and live life without complaint. And then there are others who have everything, yet never satisfied. It all comes down to the individual, not our surroundings or circumstances.
66) Be Selfish
There’s nothing wrong with being selfish. Using and hurting others for your selfish reasons, now that’s wrong. This is your life. You have every right to do and live as you please. Just don’t hurt or cause pain to others, please. For one to live to their fullest, one must think about and work on themselves. If other people want wealth and to live life to the fullest, then they can. Just show me the proof, through execution. Stop talking and make it happen. People are good, no, really good at communicating. Only a very few can walk. Wealthy and successful people are wealthy and successful for a reason. They worked on themselves and turned their words into action. I care 0% on how much people think about me. I will continue to selfishly love, improve, and work on myself 100%.
67) Forget The Past, Live The Moment, Better The Future
Are you ready for the obvious? The past is gone, forever! The present only happens once. However, the future can be shaped by your actions and thoughts of today. Screw the past. Whatever bad things happened to you, let it go. Enjoy your present moment. It only comes once in a lifetime. So be content and filled until you are filled no more, but don’t make foolish mistakes that can hurt or ruin your future. The future may be impossible to predict, yet, we all have the power to shape and make it as we please. That is our own future. Don’t get so caught up in the past or moment that you forget to live. For today and for the future.
68) Realize You Are In Full Control Of Life
Men who let Gods, outside forces and the words and action of other men dictate their life will never get what they want. Men who know that they and they alone have the full power to control every aspect of their lives usually end up getting what they want. As long as they apply action and put in massive amount of work. Believe in your God/Religion. That doesn’t concern me one bit. What does concern me is that 95% of us are just merely existing. This could very well be one of the reason. Here’s a trillion dollar advice. Continue to believe in your God, however, start taking control and responsibility for all your actions immediately. When things happen for a reason. Don’t blame your God. Stop thinking that your destiny and future has already been decided. 10 years from now, where do you stand?
69) Be The Hero That You Want To Be
Who was your childhood hero? Do you still look up to such figures? I still do, the same hero, even after 20 years. His name is Vegeta. One of the protagonists of an anime called Dragonball Z. I have made my life in his honor. I am my very own hero. I strive for perfection. To be better than who I was yesterday. Be in absolute control of my destiny and forge my own path to greatness, with my own two hands. Vegeta is the same way. My value is the same as his. We can all be our very own hero. If you look up to yourself, then you can be your personal hero.
70) Never Strive For Contentment, Strive For Perfection
If you want an ok life, then you’ll get exactly that. You wonder why you’re just average. Look in the mirror. What or who do you see? There’s your answer. If you want a perfect life, then you’ll never stop working. Being content is not living your life to the fullest. Being perfect is. Perfection may be impossible. However, it will always give you something to strive for.
71) Don’t Make To Many Careless Decisions
Just one careless and foolish decision can end your life or career. A good one can transform your life for the better. Mistakes can cost you valuable time and money. To recuperate such things, you will have to put in even more tireless work. Almost everything in life requires decisions. Some are more significant than others, and some can be dangerous or life-changing. Is it better to be intelligent or wise? If you don’t know the difference, then you’re intelligent.
72) Don’t Allow Mistakes Or Failures To Ruin You
All it takes is one failure to end you if you allow such a thing to happen. The road to success isn’t a straight line. It’s more like a stock market graph. No one cares about how many times you failed or how hard you worked. They only care about results. What can it do for them or how does it help them? With that being said, it is your duty to keep pushing yourself. Never give up. Men who stand out are the ones that know failure and mistakes are inevitable, yet they don’t let it affect them. Weak men succumb to failure and let it rule over them. Everyone has failed at one point or another in their life, and we all make mistakes every day. Just keep pushing, you’ll eventually reach your destination.
73) It’s OK To Be Single
You’ll forget in about 15-45 minutes, so it does not even matter. I was a virgin for 26.5 years, and to this day, I’ve never had a girlfriend. Every year my goal was to get laid, legitimately without paying for it. On August 2018, it happened. Anyways, it’s OK to be single. I thought sex was this heavenly sensation that could instantly transform me into a Demi-God. It actually failed to meet my expectation. Too many people depend on others for happiness. Learn to create your own happiness. Happiness is a by-product. People use external factors and the material world to make themselves happy. Nothing wrong with that. When you’re alone, who are you going depend on for joy and comfort? You, you, you.
74) Only Make Promises You Can Keep.
Be True To Your Words. Nothing speaks louder than words. Promise are words in the form of action. Promises are not meant to be broken. A promise is an oral binding agreement between two parties. It’s like marriage. You only get a few chances. A man who can keep his words even if it’s not a promise has true values. When a man has nothing, then his words are his everything. Just don’t make promises if you can’t keep them. People will mistrust you and believe you’re a liar which is the same as a cheater. If you keep breaking promises, it will devalue you. You won’t be the same person as you once were.
75) Educate And Increase Your Knowledge
In today’s time. You are worth just as much as you know. If you really want to live then learn. There is an endless supply of knowledge, for everyone. Keep learning and never stop learning. You’ll discover and understand new things. The human brain has never stopped evolving since the time of man. You don’t know what you want to do? You fear the unknown? You’re stuck and not sure where to go with life? Then educate yourself. There’s free wifi, library, books, and all the unlimited resources and knowledge you can feast upon.
76) Think Long Term
Pleasure is short and temporary, yet there are billions of things that can be pleasurable. Happiness can last forever, yet only a few things can be called happiness. Eating an ice-cream cone isn’t happiness because the effect is only temporary. Being thankful that you’re alive is happiness. This can last indefinitely. My point here is that people want quick fixes and solutions. It’s faster, easier, and more convenient. What’s hard takes effort, sweat, blood, tears, and time. People don’t like that. Therefore they want no part of it. It takes 2-3 years to see a business grow. After that, it’s just passive income. However, millions if not billions prefer a weekly paycheck. That’s why 3% of the world employs 97% of the other. Think long-term, even 50 years. It will pay off unless you prefer to live paycheck to paycheck for the rest of your life?
77) How You Start Your Day Is How You End It
That means every day. If you wake up grumpy, complaining about how the A/C was too cold or how the bacon and eggs were under-cooked, then the beginning of your day will determine the rest of your day. Start each morning with meditation, exercise, or do something positive. It really does make a huge difference. I learned this from Tony Robbins which I’m 101% certain he learned it from someone else. #77 is quite important since it’s an everyday thing. If you want to be in the best spirit, then be as happy and uplifting as you can immediately upon rising from your slumber.
78) Don’t Feel Sorry For The Less Fortunate
Whenever I see blind people or really disfigure people, I start to tear up like a kid eating broccoli. The feeling of extreme sadness and appreciation mere into one. I felt sad because they have to live like that for the rest of their lives. The definition of gratitude really became apparent. The reality is, no matter how much tears I shed for them, it doesn’t benefit or change them in any way. They were probably born or grew up that way, so they are completely used to it. When I compared my life to the less fortunate, it makes me appreciate who I am and to be content with what I have and just live my life as is. That’s not how it works. Whether you do nothing or everything, it still doesn’t change a thing. Like I said early, $hit happens to everyone. It’s just some really get the crappy end of the stick. If anything, feel sorry for yourself for not having lived the life that you deem worthy.
79) Live Your World, Not Others
Your mom wants you to be a doctor. Your dad wants you to be a lawyer. Your sister/brother wants you to be a homeless drug addict. That’s their wish, what about yours? When your last breath is being drawn, is that breath going to be filled with regrets or happiness? Your parents either want you to follow in their footstep or to be successful. What they don’t realize is that this isn’t about them, it’s about you. If others really want what is best for you, then they will support you on your journey, not enforce judgment on you.
80) Be Extraordinary
Don’t settle for average. 95% of us are average. This world doesn’t need more ordinary people. We need extraordinary people. I believe that more of us could be extraordinary if we never give up. Every journey begins with a step; however some journey may require a million steps while others require a billion. Many give up or falter on their path because many choose the path of least resistance and only the extraordinary are willing to put in that “extra” work. Everyone is doing it, so it must be cool! No one is doing it, so it must be hard and extraordinary.
81) Compliment Yourself Every Day
You. You are a sexy, amazing, and attractive human being. When someone compliments you, doesn’t it feel exquisite? Want to cheat life? Try it on yourself. Look in the mirror and say something kind to yourself. Do it with force, power, and actually, mean it. Add visualization. How do you feel? Just 5 minutes of this every day works like magic. You’ll start to feel the things that you say to yourself.
82) Never Compare Yourself To Others
Jeff Bezos made be the wealthiest man alive, but he’s bald. Elon Musk may be a genius, but he can’t keep a stable marriage. Everyone has issues. But you know what you have that no one has? Yourself! You can be as great and as unique as you wish to be. Who cares how successful your friends or how attractive your grandpa is. They’re not you. Start comparing yourself to yourself. What? Be better than you were 24 hours ago. Keep improving and bettering yourself. If you do that, then you’ll be incomparable.
83) Give Up, NEVER!
There will be times, maybe many times when you feel like giving up is the only choice. Whatever you do, don’t give up. You can retreat, fail, use a backup plan, and the likes. Just don’t give up, it degrades your worth and who you are. If you’re a quitter, then you’re definitely not living life to the fullest. You just want to half-ass do everything, and that’s what you’ll be, a half-asser.
84) Take Negative Things And Use Them To Your Advantage
Bad and negative things are a part of life, maybe every day. Get used to them but don’t let them control or brainwash you. Learn from them. Why do they happen? What did you do that caused them to arise? Learn from them and the next time they occur, take what you’ve learned and assess the situation.
85) Be Happy, It’s A Choice
Anyone can be sad and angry. It’s a choice, not a requirement. The same goes for happiness. Let’s say for instance you can only choose to be happy for the rest of your life or to be sad. Obviously, you would choose to be happy. You have a choice in every matter that you do.
86) Only You Can Create Your Life
When you’re 70 years old and live in misery, it’s because you chose that path. No one has ever purposely made your life miserable. Time is precious, even more valuable than all the money in this world. Successful people are too busy creating their own wonderful life. If nothing has ever gone your way, then try forcing it too. To do so, take control and make it happen. If you really want it that bad then, you’ll find a way, anyway.
87) Get Used To Disappointment
This isn’t paradise. Not everything will go as plan, ever. It’s one thing to expect perfection and another to work for it. The cure for disappointment is a plan of action. When you get used to disappointment, then everything becomes easier to deal with. It will take less to please.
88) Never Settle For Less Than 100%
If you want to live your life to the fullest, then lead by example. 99% is good, but it’s still not 100%. It may take some time to get everything you desire, but if it is probable, then it’s possible. Be the best, get the best, and live your best. Give 100% to everything, and you’ll get 100% in return.
89) Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You
Karma is real, and it’s the most magnificent and baddest b!tch. Treat others with kindness and respect. In turn, they will treat you like such. Do something good every day, even if they don’t return the favor. Eventually, after receiving many good deeds, people are bound to return the favor. Most humans are followers, so they will practice what they see or know. Good deeds get recognize. It may take a while but like I said, as long as you keep going, you’ll eventually get what you wish for.
90) Give 10-30 Minutes Each Day To Yourself
We are talking about living “your” life to the fullest. If you want to live then live for yourself, right? We work, cook, clean, play, and whatever it is that we do, but how many of us actually take the time to devote to ourselves entirely? Reflect on who you are. Why are you here? What do you love about yourself? What can you do to improve yourself? No one knows you better than you do. If you don’t know yourself, then that’s a big issue.
91) Quit Stressing Out So Much
Studies show that 85% of the things we stress over never happens. Great way to waste time, cause more stress, and wreck havoc on your health. I used to have anxiety (12 years) and social anxiety (8 years). They were a b!tch. I couldn’t even enjoy life. Eventually, I got so fed up with it that I just gave up and overcame it. I know I can die any moment so why stress about useless matters. Don’t you want to enjoy life or stress over it? Who knows? You’re going to die, stress over that when you’re dead, but not anytime before that.
92) Take Naps
Napping is very beneficial and productive. Huh? Yes, you read it correctly. Napping increases brain power, alertness, energy, focus, and loads more. If you’re tired and dozing off; do you honestly think it is wise to continue to work or study? Instead of sipping on energy drinks which is so toxic, try a quick 20-minute nap. It’s free, more effective, and quite healthy. No tax included!
93) You Don’t Have It That Bad
Here are the facts. Approximately 85% of Americans dislike or aren’t content with where they work. As a human being, we have to contribute to society. There are paralyzed, disabled, blind, and ill people who continue to work despite their disabilities. Until they die! In America, the government will hand you free stuff, once in a while. However, that is not the case if you live elsewhere. I’ve been to Vietnam and Thailand. I’ve seen people with missing limbs, deformed beyond recognition, and other extremely dishearten appearances. They still work. They have to help themselves because no one is willing or going to help the disabled. If you think living in America is miserable, then you wouldn’t last half a lunch break abroad. If you have no disabilities at all, then you are one of the most fortunate beings that has ever walked this earth.
94) Execution Over Communication
There’s a lot of talking and not much to back it up. Is God real? Do you love your spouse? Have you kept all your promises? Don’t tell me, show me. If you want people to trust and look up to you, then lead by example. There is no greater evidence than the action itself. It takes a few seconds to get to the point. It can take years or even a lifetime to make evident of your words. How does one live, with words or actions? You can tell anyone that you’re living life to the fullest, but when they see it, then they’ll believe it.
95) Use Talent To Your Advantage
Some of us are born tall, attractive, smart, gifted in strength, and the likes. There are so many people out there who don’t use their talent wisely. What takes the average being 5 or even 50 years to master has been handed to you. Don’t let such a fantastic gift go to waste, especially if you still have youth. Make the best of what life gave you. Nothing last forever. One day you or someone may need your talent, but don’t wait for that day. Use it today and every day.
96) Know Your Worth.
You are worth as much as you want to be or should I say, as much as you think you are. Billions of us think we are just average or even below average. Therefore, we become what we believe. If you think or practice something for long enough. It becomes permanent. Jeff Bezos may be the wealthiest person alive, physically. However, who is the wealthiest person alive, mentally? That answer should be you. Never settle for less than what you’re worth. Most of us are worth $7.75/hr. That’s the minimum wage in America.
97) Thank The Maker Everyday
#97 Is one ultra important, do well to remember it. It doesn’t matter who or what you believe in, just thank them that you are alive and well. It gives me great joy to know that I am special to be alive and living. I could have been born 1,000 years ago, and maybe I was, or I may be reincarnated in another 222 years, but I am living today. I have health, wealth, love, and the greatest gift of all, life. Sometimes I forget, but I try to thank The Maker every single day.
98) Live Your Life To The Fullest
#98 is just as crucial as #97. You have a choice. Live in the absolute fullest that you can, or live in misery without purpose. Some disabled people are living life more than the super rich and the superable. It’s not where you come from or what you are. It’s about where you’re going and who you are. Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth? Do this. From now on live your life to the fullest. You’ve lived the way you are, and nothing has changed. Incorporate everything you’ve read so far and see how changed your life is. Give it some time but don’t revert back to your bad habits. The journey may be difficult, but the destination is well worth it.
99) Die Without A Single F$#@ing Regret
This is the #1 most critical way to live your life. How well you live your life will determine how you accept your death. For me, if I were to die tomorrow, then that would be OK. I do wish to live longer and educate more people, but I hold no regrets. I’m living my life to the fullest. I am thankful for everything and everyone. How about you? Forget about everything and ask yourself this question. If you were to die tomorrow for 100% certain. Will you embrace death with fully open arms like a father greeting his long lost son, or will you succumb to death and beg at its mercy for just another day? There is nothing worse than dying with regret. Seize today. Conquer tomorrow. And live forever!
