Create a Better You With These 21-day Challenges

You may remember that this resurgence in blogging, and the  viewing of Social Media in a different way began at the start of this year (2017).

The lady responsible for helping me make the shift is M J Robertson, the founder of the blog and the author of The Fearless Life Guide (see the link on the shopping page)

Molly had invited me to take part in a 30-day challenge, the object of which was to record a video each day over 30 days and then post it onto Facebook.  

The purpose of these videos was to provide insights into my life, so that people began to get to know the person they were friends with on Social Media. 

I challenge you to do the same thing – it really is good fun!  If you accept the challenge please include me in the tags when you post the videos to your Facebook page (and the Under Blue Skies page, I hope).

In addition and because I enjoyed that challenge so much I have researched further about how it could be used in an even more positive way.

That research has led me to a set of 21-day challenges designed to change your life and help to create a better you.

It is a proven fact that if you start something like the challenges listed below and continue to follow the actions detailed for 21 consecutive days, what you are doing will become a habit.

If you follow the 8 challenges detailed then you have the potential to become a completely changed person –

So, are you prepared to take part? 

Are your ready to make significant changes to your life?

The Challenges

Challenge 1
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

For 21 days do something you have never done before.   Travel; test your fears; meet new people – do something that scares you!! 

Challenge 2
Turn Off The Negatives

For 21 days stick to being optimistic and positive.  If you don’t like the situation you are in, instead of being negative about it do something to change it.  If you can’t change it move through it with faith, turn off you negativity and press on.

Challenge 3
Set A Budget

For 21 days set yourself a daily budget and follow it.  Many hardships come about through stressing about money. However, if you set yourself a budget it opens the way to an awareness of what your spend your money on and helps you to fix the situation.  Set the budget, follow it and observe what happens

Challenge 4
Become More Accepting

For 21 days don’t judge other people for something that  they did, even if it was unethical, immoral or simply wrong.  Put yourself in their shoes, love them throughout the situation, do not judge them even if you may not agree with the things they are doing.  Accept situations, people and outcomes.

Challenge 5
Stop Putting Things Off

For 21 days avoid putting things off.  Set goals, commit to them and follow them through to the end.  If necessary start with the worst thing, make yourself a to-do list.  Don’t put things off and get them completed early

Challenge 6
Volunteer / Be Of Service To Others

For 21 days be of service to your partner; your family and your friends.  Join a volunteer group, helping people less fortunate than you are (even if it is only for 1 day a week).  For this challenge serve others and volunteer often

Challenge 7
Spread Kindness

For 21 days be friendly to everyone around you and to yourself. When you wake up in the morning compliment yourself in the mirror.  Compliment the people you work with, your partner, your family and friends.  These compliments will often make someone’s day.  Aim to compliment at least three people a day for the 21 day period.

Challenge 8
Don’t Complain

For 21 days stop complaining that you are tired, that there is too much washing to do, or moaning about the weather. These complaints are not helping or doing anything constructive, they are simply making you feel down and miserable.  Create a daily “no complaint” routine
