Attitude is key. I am an optimist, even in the worse cases I somehow think positively. You have to set goals for yourself and decide that you are going to be determined enough to completely them. If you truly want change you can make it happen. Never be afraid to ask for help if you need it, but you still have to do the work for yourself. Stop holding back and settling for less when you are worth and deserve so much more.
The first step would be to firmly decide that you need to change your life. The second would be to stop yourself from feeling bad about yourself and others that may prevent your progress. The final would be to deny yourself certain things, which may include your current beliefs, desires, wants and goals. In depth, try to talk to people with different opinions than yours and from other cultures and beliefs. This will help you understand things from their viewpoint, consequently giving you a different outlook. Once you find out what you need to change, I'm sure you will find ways to get it done too.
That's a tough one. It depends on what you want to change, I guess. I would start by creating a list of things you would like to do differently, and prioritize them in order of importance. After you do that, you can develop a plan to work towards implementing those changes.
so lets start to change my life i have to change my thoughts and once i have changed my thoughts i will change my habits and follow my heart
First of all, you need to decide and sort out the important things in your life. If you just start 'bringing your life on track' without any plan or a rough idea, it will be like going on a road trip without GPS or a map or asking people beforehand. Once you have your ideas and your priorities sorted, you can begin with the ones which are easier; which do not really take much effort or are somewhat in your comfort zone. It will give you encouragement and make you feel good, which in turn will make you want to go for the 'bigger' or the 'tougher' steps in your plan. Just like how you would not start exercising with 100 squats per day. You will slowly build yourself from 10 squats. Then 20. Then 30, and so on. You cross the beginner level, then intermediate and finally advanced. I hope this somewhat helped! Stay safe and take care!
