# Monslay : Keys to a successful life

Tip #1 : Get yourself a Planner / Agenda

Whether you are at school or not, your "must-have" has to be your Planner. Why? Because this is by writing things down that you can get things done. In order to be successful in life, you have to be organized. I can not stress enough how important it is. Write down every day of the week, the things you want to accomplish: your meetings, important days, deadlines, tasks ... And highlight gradually each of the tasks you've completed.

Writing things down allows you to :

  • Have a clear and tangible vision of your weekly goals
  • Not to be caught off guard
  • Reach your deadlines on time
  • Get things done little by little
  • Be less stressed out about what you need to accomplish

You can get a nice planner on Esty, Amazon, or you can create your own!

Tip #2 : Exercice

Maybe you don't like to exercice because you don't work out for the right reasons.

It's not a secret that working out not only helps you to get fit, but exercising is good for your mind and this has to be your reason number 1 to exercice. Have you ever experienced that post-workout feeling where everything seems to be clearer, more organized et brighter afterwards? Nothing really happened during that workout time, you're grades didn't go higher and your wallet is not heavier, but all the endorphins released by your brain have created that feeling of euphoria.

To conclude: working out improves your mood, help you sleep better, boost your creativity, give you more energy and make you more confident.

Tip #3 : Save money $

« Money looks better in the bank than on your feet ». Sophia Amoruso.

Cash is king, so if you are planning on buying a car, buying a house or creating a business, the number 1 thing you will need is money $$. So ask yourself twice about buying that new luxury bag and think on the long term, and what you will be able to get buy saving money. Look at the bigger picture once again!

Tip #4 : Be curious

Get out of your confort zone once in a while and be curious. Whether it's by meeting new people, buying a new inspirational book, going to an event or asking people, go out there and don't be afraid to take a step forward in something new. You may learn something.

Tip #5 : Dream big

Don't be afraid or ashamed to have big dreams or big projects for you because you are capable to succeed only if you believe it ( and with hard work too). Careful,having big life projects and big dreams, with a vision too precise can be « dangerous » because you will ultimately wait for an obligation of result and this can be disappointing if everything doesn't go exactly how you've planned it. Let time do things and if plan A didn't go as planned, don't worry there are 25 other letters in the alphabet. Some of your failure will bring you to success so don't be afraid to fail " If the plan changes, that can be even better. There are secret opportunities hidden inside every failure" Sophia Amoruso. You have to perceive this as a project where you will surpass yourself and as a source of happiness and creativity. So, you can have big dreams, but you need to be aware that you will fail, things will come with hard work and perseverance, things will take time too but you will get there one feet after the other ...eventually I am sure.
