6 Steps to Mastering the Move Forward Game

Mastering the Move Forward Game

Step 1:  Master Your Mindset

I see people become victims of their circumstances and life challenges all of the time.  When life gets tough or depressing, most will adopt a negative perspective and think to themselves about how unfair life is: how they should have been born into better circumstances with more money; or how they should have been given better opportunities; or how things should have happened differently.  

Well, the truth of the matter is that life is going to happen – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.  The one true thing that you will always have 100% control over is your response to these events.  When you adopt a positive attitude and always look for the good in any given circumstance – how could you not move forward…?  Below are some of our most popular posts on mastering your mindset!  Start by reading these:

Step 2:  Set Yourself Up For Success

Remember that in order to best handle the challenges that you’re facing in your life, you’ll need to be updated to your latest version.  What does that even mean?  It means, if you never spend time on yourself growing mentally, physically, and spiritually – you’ll slowly start to become less and less capable of handling the challenges life presents.  It would be the equivalent of trying to use an Apple-1 (the first computer released by Apple in 1976) instead of an iMac in todays crazy world.

If you genuinely want to help and influence others to the best of your ability, you need to start by helping and influencing yourself to the best of your ability first.  Otherwise, not only will you be limiting yourself in achieving and becoming all that you are capable of, but you’ll be limiting what influence and impact you are capable of having on the lives of others too.  Now, continue your journey forward by reading the posts that follow and get yourself set up for success!

—— —— ——

Step 3:  Take Action, Reflect, and Repeat!

Intentions don’t make a difference in the world – actions do.  You can have the best intentions of growing the most beautiful flowers, but if you forget to water them, don’t plant them in the right soil, and keep them out of the sun – your flowers won’t stand a chance.

Actions are everything when it comes to growth.  To know and not to do is the same as not to know!  …I’m going to write that again:  To know and not to do is the same as not to know.  Life is not a spectator sport – it’s a full contact, get your clothes dirty, and leave it all on the field – kind of sport.  Below, you’ll find some of our most popular posts on taking action but don’t spend too much time on them! …We want you to get off of our site and interacting with the world ASAP after all 😉

—— —— ——

Step 4:  Build Amazing Habits!

Staying consistent with a lifestyle change or healthy habit over the long run can be very difficult.  How many times have you started a new workout routine that you said you would be 100% committed to no matter what – only to find yourself quitting it a few months later?

…Or jumped on the latest dieting trend and decided you were going to follow it ‘to the tee‘ so that you could get maximum results?  …Or set a new goal of reading for a half hour every day which never lasted?  Too many to count?  Yup, me too.  But with the simple hacks listed below, you’ll start to understand how habits work and you’ll start to build the life you’ve always wanted.  Will it be easy?  Most certainly not.  Will it be worth it?  Absolutely so.  Good luck!

—— —— ——

Step 5:  Never Stop Learning.

Regardless of what problems/ challenges you’re facing in life – the reason that they are there and affecting you the way they are, is because you haven’t expanded your consciousness enough to the point where they can be resolved.  No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

Therefore, the mastery mindset here is, if you keep learning and growing – you’ll keep solving more and more of your problems!  Remain the same and you’ll keep facing the same issues.  All problems/ challenges are solved twice – first in the mind and second in reality.  So if you get your mind right first, your life will follow.  Below, you’ll find five of our favorite quotes lists that will help you expand your mind for deeper understanding.  Brace yourself!

—— —— ——

Step 6:  Always Give Back.

Life is really about cultivating happiness and creating meaning. And meaning does not come from what you get, it comes from what you give.  When we master the art of happiness and learn how to unleash the best version of ourself every day – touching lives and changing our world becomes inevitable.

One of the most memorable lines I have ever heard from a movie came from Into the Wild when Chris McCandless said, “Happiness is only real when shared.”  You only need to think about what you do when you get good news or find out something exciting to confirm the truth in that line… You immediately want to tell somebody and share what you learned!

Sharing enhances everything we experience.  And once you master steps 1 – 5 and take control of your life and your potential – step 6 becomes the icing on the cake that brings to you a wave of fulfillment that can’t be matched by anything you accomplish or achieve (and celebrate) on your own.  Our final five lists below will get you in the mood to give back and help others and we look forward to hearing about your successes in the future 😉 – Cheers!

Keep Moving Forward!!

  • Hi Matt
    Just love your motivations .Awesome work.

  • Hi Matt, at the TKD banquet on March 12th, you closed with some very powerful words. Can you tell me where I can find a copy of them?

  • Thanks a lot Matt. I am having a bad time and fortunate enough, I found your blog. I personally always try to motivate the fallen, but sometimes even I fell down and find no one around. Thank you so much for motivating people. It feels glad that there are people who care for other’s happiness.

    I will be glad if I can contribute in any manner towards motivation.

  • To give credit where credit is due, you have a quotation attributed to ‘unknown’. It’s a line from a poem by Edmund Vance Cooke with the off-putting title of “How Did You Die”:

    Did you tackle that trouble that came your way
    With a resolute heart and cheerful?
    Or hide your face from the light of day
    With a craven soul and fearful?
    Oh, a trouble’s a ton, or a trouble’s an ounce,
    Or a trouble is what you make it,
    And it isn’t the fact that you’re hurt that counts,
    But only how did you take it?

    You are beaten to earth? Well, well, what’s that?
    Come up with a smiling face.
    It’s nothing against you to fall down flat,
    But to lie there — that’s disgrace.
    The harder you’re thrown, why the higher you bounce;
    Be proud of your blackened eye!
    It isn’t the fact that you’re licked that counts,
    It’s how did you fight — and why?

    And though you be done to the death, what then?
    If you battled the best you could,
    If you played your part in the world of men,
    Why, the Critic will call it good.
    Death comes with a crawl, or comes with a pounce,
    And whether he’s slow or spry,
    It isn’t the fact that you’re dead that counts,
    But only how did you die?

    I was always a little perplexed by the last stanza ’til life stepped in with the answer. A student at our college was studying social work. He had been evicted by his folks because he was gay. His apartment was in a rough section of town. One of his elderly neighbours was being robbed of her monthly pension by resident drug dealers. He intervened and was bludgeoned with a broken bottle. His wounds proved fatal. He died walking the talk!

    • Hi mathew im jus new in this site and i found that reading quotes is so interesting,it somehow gives you new ideas and also makes you think of the qualitys in ur entire life. I also want to share mi thoughts to inspire people.

    • Quotes have changed my life. They are the absolute essence of wisdom and are concise and easy to read. They have helped me to find my voice, to identify my values, to take positive action, and to gain a better understanding of how things in the world work. A quote a day keeps ignorance away (ha!) – and when you really dedicate yourself to immersing yourself in them, reflecting on them, and applying them to your everyday life (on a regular basis) – powerful things can happen! I hope you will join our quote tribe and share your thoughts, inspire others, and keep moving forward towards your best life! Thank you for your thought 🙂
