3 Steps to Change Your Life for the Better in One Day

Some believe that nothing great can happen in one day. I think that many great things can happen in one single day. Nothing occurs, of course, without effort, positivity, and a plan. With these three things, you can create your new forward-thinking, thought-provoking, success-seeking life in only one day.


You can twist and turn this in any direction you would like, but if you are not positive, you are already thwarting your efforts to live your very best life ever. Think of positivity as one of the habits that you cannot live without such as brushing your teeth or getting dressed in the morning!. Add positivity to the mix. Wake up, brush teeth, and greet the day with positivity.

Positivity will open doors to opportunities and give you the flexibility of mind to try new things. It will help you with confidence and also guide you effortlessly past nuisances and small barriers.

Your very first task in changing your life for the better in one day is to eliminate your negative mindset because it will do nothing but hold you back! You will not soar if you allow negativity to suppress your true desires! Decide right now that positivity must be a part of your life from this day forward. This step is the most important, and if you do it, you will already have changed your life for the better in one day.


Brainstorm all of your goals and write them down, big or small. They can range from personal to financial to social to professional. This is your road map and direction. There may be similar components  or an overall theme to different goals.

Once you make the list, pick one. Yes, I know. Choosing one from a list of many can seem confusing and impossible. For you to change your life in one day, picking one goal, and only one, is necessary. If nothing else, close your eyes and let your finger land on one of them.

Recently, I had a small goal of setting up my desk and writing accessories in a new location. This goal was important because as a professional writer, I rely on the organization of the area where I work. I took a small amount of time to hang few small pictures, clean the desk, add a lamp, and organize folders. I completely set up shop in record time because it was the one goal on which I was focused. I set this one and finished it in one day, which is miraculous!

The reason it was an efficient accomplishment is because I made it my one goal for that day. I decided exactly what I wanted to accomplish. I now have a good writing area with appropriate lighting and comfort to perform my writing jobs. It affects not just today, but my future as a writer. This goal literally changed my life for the better in one day.

If you choose a bigger goal, then tackle one milestone or piece of it. Then, do another piece tomorrow. Follow through and be diligent until it is completed. Whether it is a small goal or a large one, continue to be proactive and recognize that completing the goal is essential and important to who you are.

If you want to be a martial artist, like me, add it to your goals.  Then, make a few calls and inquiries, ask around, and find a school or program that seems to suit you. Set up a visit or a free class, and you’re finished! You have taken an incredible and brave step toward the person you want to be. In one day, or maybe just a few hours, you have changed your life for the better by putting your goals and dreams into action.

If you want to be an actor, singer, musician, or artist, you can follow the very same methodology. There is nothing difficult about these steps. They require action, which is where most people get stuck. People assume their dreams are too big or not possible to achieve, so they never take action.


It is all well and good to read this post and think that there are some valuable and simple ideas here that can change your life for the better in one day, but as I said above, the critical piece is taking action. You already know that if you set a goal that it can improve your life, and that remaining positive and focused will allow you to move closer and closer to the person you truly want to be. None of it happens if you do not begin, or take action. The simplest direction I can give you is to believe in yourself and follow through.

Goals can be achieved in pieces. In my example above, there is research, phone calls, decisions, and then the actual commitment. These pieces of the goal work together until you secure the final acceptance – commitment. This is all you need to change your life for the better in just one day.

The next time you are wondering where your life is headed, or you feel like you are not achieving or accomplishing goals, there is something you can do to remedy it. I have outlined the very simple steps, now all you need to do is create a plan of your own.

Treat this as a challenge. I know you can do it, because I have done it. From writing, to life coaching, motivating and speaking, I am finally living the life that I have always wanted to live because I decided, one day, to change my life for the better. I pushed fear and complacency aside, and began to tackle goals one at a time.

I found out what I had been missing all along. Every day is the chance for me to set new goals and put new dreams into action, and now my life is full of opportunities and blessings because of it.

Don’t wait any longer.  You can change your life for the better in one day.
