The world is a busy place and we are caught up in this hectic pace. Most of us lack sleep from trying to work hard in order to live the life we want or from worrying that we are not working hard enough or doing enough to achieve our goals.

The New Year is all about changes. It is about taking baby steps that can lead to big improvements in your health, wealth and happiness.
Dear Present Me,
You did it! You were able to go through 2018 with flying colours. You thought it was impossible at first but you have overcome all the challenges.
It is human nature to be jealous of others. However, before you even begin comparing yourself with others, think again. We all have different talents and gifts. Each of us is destined to be great. You may not be good in math but you can be an excellent artist. You may be poor in communication skills but you may be a good athlete. Just because you got bad grades in school, it does not mean that you will fail in life. You are more than your report card. You are talented. All you need to do is to find the genius within you.
How many athletes, movie stars, heirs and lottery winners do you know who have gone from filthy rich to flat broke? Although it is hard to create massive wealth, it is even harder to maintain wealth over a long period of time. Whether it is creating or maintaining wealth, the secret behind it is having the correct mentality. The truth is that rich people think differently than the average person. So, if you want to be wealthy, you got to have the correct mindset.
Do you want to become wealthy? The key to wealth is to master the wealth mindset. The difference between the rich and poor has nothing to do with the amount of money that they have in the bank; rather, it is all about their mindset. Your mindset is your set of beliefs and attitudes about certain areas in your life. If money is your concern, then chances are you have symptoms of a poverty mindset.
Look at the photo above. Do you see the glass as half full or half empty?
Some of you will probably say it is half full while some will say it is half empty. Your answer will depend on your attitude and perception of reality.
It is amazing how a single photo can be perceived in two completely opposite point of views. This simple test is actually used by psychologists to determine whether a person is an optimist or a pessimist.
