Let's face it, we all want to be that person that everyone wants to be around. That person everyone talks about in a positive way. When your name is brought up in conversation, others say that you are living your best life.

Who doesn't want to be that person? Some people have this natural ability at being a complete badass, while others have to take an extra mile just to be accepted.

Here are some of these tips that will help you live your best life.  Living your best life is really about being you and living up to your full potential. One of the best ways to do that is to find the key habits that will move you towards your goals and mission. 

Courage is the ability to act despite fears.

To Live Your Best Life You Must Be a Little Afraid 

Do you know those moments where you are uncomfortable? This is where the magic happens. Once you are slightly out of your comfort zone, and you challenge yourself to grow, whether that is professionally or spiritually, you can feel the change happening.

And sometimes you will have that feeling deep in your stomach; you know that one where you feel sick? Embrace that feeling; it'll leave eventually.

To live your best life, you have to be a risk-taker. Even if the outcome isn't necessarily what you want, you take the bull by the horns and make it happen, or make it a learning experience. Courage is the ability to act despite fears.

Allow yourself to feel fear and to be afraid. Learning to have these feelings is entirely reasonable, and no matter how scary the situation, it's in overcoming it where all of the growth happens.

  • Growth happens outside your comfort zone 
  • Embrace fear and use it to move forward
  • Overcome all the garbage

Be Calm, Patient, Quiet and Live Your Best Life With Key Habits

Some situations are stressful, and being able to stay calm in the middle of chaos can prove to be astronomically beneficial to you. While others are stressed beyond belief, you have a sense of calm about you that will only make those that are around you, feel a sense of peace as well.

Being patient with what is going on around you is the key for living your best life. Things will not always go your way but you can see the best in anything that happens.

Sometimes silence is the answer. When too many chefs are in the kitchen and screaming back and forth at each other no-one, and I mean no-one can genuinely understand what anyone is saying and what is said is laid on deaf ears anyway.

Allow yourself to be quiet for the time being, and once the time is right, say what you feel. Sometimes listening is more powerful.

  • Always calm and cool 
  • Know when silence is the answer
  • Know the power in listening 

Be Passionate, Original and Live Your Best Life 

It's not what you do, but how you do it. People gravitate towards those who have a sense of confidence about themselves.

When others see someone doing something they are passionate about, they can see it, they can feel it, it's kind of like a moth to a flame. People want to be around those who exude a positive energy, and they want to be around people who make them feel better.

Be an original - no-one likes a carbon copy of something that is already being done. Have an idea that's outside of the box? Bring it up, do it. Make it happen.

  • Do things in a way that only you could 
  • Passion is contagious 
  • Be your unique self

Start Living, Be Funny and Live Your Best Lie

Let's say you are in a circumstance that isn't necessarily what people would consider fun. Imagine being in a meeting all day, talking about mundane things, anything that sucks the life out of you.

Why not be the person who brings a little fun to those situations? Now I'm not talking about being a class clown, but I am talking about being the fun one. Lighten up the mood a little bit, all while not taking away from the importance of what you are doing.

Sometimes all we need is 5 minutes of talking about something else, that brings people back together when the time is right. Be the hero; make people laugh.

Always Greet People With Your Best Smile

Who has been walking down the street, minding their own business, listening to their music and you are walking into a store, and for no reason, someone greets you with an authentic smile? You can't help but smile back and say hello and thank you.

Because it's such a rarity nowadays, but I think it's critical to start smiling and greeting people to live your best life. Usually, they are taken back by this, but more often than not, you'll get a huge smile back.

Be Exceptional and Live Your Best Life

If you found out Lebron James was practicing close by you would probably go and watch. The reason is that we are hard-wired to be attracted to what is exceptional. Do something that will make people want to watch and learn from you.

At first glance, this sounds really selfish and almost arrogant. Think about the process to be great though, it requires building up a lot of skill.

Wear that crazy tie, that insane hat, or suite. You'll either get some awkward looks, but you know that you are being yourself. The combination of standing out by your personality and standing out with your skill is killer.

Be The Best Version Of Yourself

This is important - do NOT stray from being your true self. People will not like you, no matter what you do. Changing to please others is a waste of time. You'll find your tribe eventually. Be a good person and the rest will work itself out.

Treat others how you would like to be treated. Don't talk down to people. Pretty standard, but you could let go of simple manners all while trying to live your best life. Be who you are, and be the best version of yourself.

Make An Effort To Be More Present 

Make this a habit, no matter what you are doing. Put the phone down when someone is talking to you. Leave the phone in your pocket when you are over for dinner at anyone's house. Relish in the fact that people want to be around you to interact with you.

This is also important for when you are alone. Be present at the moment. Take deep breaths, and remember you have a body that needs to be taken care of.

We all want to live our best life but taking some steps to make sure you are not arrogant once you get there is critical. Take the time to realize that living your best life starts with little changes. That is how you lived a fulfilled life taking advantage of your key habits.
