Nicole's Tips, Tricks and More
My name is Nicole. I love writing. I want to help motivate you to get active, and apply yourself in real life. Maybe listen to my tips, you might find them handy.
Love Life. Do Good. Live Well
You often have to go beyond what you thought you were capable of. That’s how we grow. Achieving goals isn't just about getting what you’re going after. It’s also about forcing yourself to become better, wiser, and stronger so that you can take on even bigger goals.

Most people don’t experience the life of their dreams simply because they quit way too easily. Not giving up on your dreams also means to be smart however. You can try all you want but if you’re taking the wrong set of actions, you’re not going to get very far.

Life is going to find way to test you. At times, you may feel that life is unfair. The urge to quit during these times are the highest but don’t give in. Whatever your dream is, if it’s important to you, then fight for it. Just remember that there is more than one way to achieve your dreams. If one way doesn't work, just change your strategy. Never giving up doesn't mean you keep doing the wrong things over and over, it means to be smart and figure out the correct actions to take and then taking them until you achieve your dreams.



“Don’t give up. There are too many nay-sayers out there who will try to discourage you. Don’t listen to them. The only one who can make you give up is yourself.”

-Sidney Sheldon




Love Life

In essence, to me this means to love everything around me, people, nature, moments, experiences, and so on. It’s about realizing that life is a gift. It’s about cherishing the relationships and bonds that I have with the people in my life. It’s about remembering that life would be pretty lame without them. It’s about loving myself for who I am and seeing enough in myself to follow my dreams.

It’s often easy to forget these things with all of the challenges and stress that goes on in every day life. But if you’ve ever had the experience of seeing a loved one going through their final days, you all of the sudden realize that most of the little things people fuss about isn’t all that significant in the whole grand scheme of things and even the little moments of happiness can mean the world to you.


Do Good
To me, This basically means to give back. Whether it’s donating time, money, sharing my knowledge or anything else, as long as I’m making some positive impact, then I feel like I’m doing something to contribute to the world no matter how small.

You may be in a position where giving is tough. Whether you don’t have much money or much time, giving isn’t always an easy thing to do. If you’re in this situation, then work hard on improving your life and putting yourself in a better position to help others. Some people just do enough to help themselves and that’s fine. However, if you ever have the urge to do so, consider reaching beyond your own needs. The feeling of making a positive impact on someone’s life is just amazing.


Live Well
To me, this means to live a healthy as well as a financially successful life. You could have lots of money but if your health isn’t great, you’ll have a hard time enjoying life. If you have great health but no money, you’ll be working all day just to pay the bills

I realize that money isn’t everything but people with money can do a lot more in terms of inspiring and helping others than people who are flat out broke and are solely focused on making ends meet. Imagine being in a position where money wasn’t an issue. Think about how much more you can do with an extra 40 hours a week. You could do what you have a passion for. You could learn new skills. You could travel and explore new places, meet new people, and create moments that will last a life time.
Being in a position where you work because you want to instead of working because you have to will make life a lot more enjoyable.


Love Life. Do Good. Live Well- These are the words that remind me each day what’s truly important to me.
