“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results.” — Albert Einstein

Are you tired of doing the same thing over and over again? Do you finally want better results? I’ve been guilty of hitting a wall many times in the past. My biggest problem often (and still today) is that I’m never happy with my results. I always want more. I always want better. I never feel like I’m doing enough.

If you want greater results you can try doing one of the tips mentioned below. Whenever I really want to push things to the next level, I go to this list of tips. Today I’m going to share this list with you guys.

A few tips on how you can change your behavior to improve your financial (and overall) life:

Stop talking, start doing.

What you’re talking about doing isn’t important. What’s important is what’s actually happening. Nobody cares about how you’re going to gain 20 lbs of muscle by the time August rolls around. Your plan to start a profitable business is useless until you actually start making money. It’s flat out pathetic when I hear friends stake claim to such audacious goals. It really is simple. When you want better results, you need to start doing. Talking about some huge plans is fine if you’re in the planning stage. You eventually need to start doing something.

Do something different.

You need to stop following the same routine. If your results suck it’s because you need to try something new. You need to get out of your comfort zone. You need to slap that comfort zone in the face and branch out for once.

How can you do something different?

  • Go to new places.
  • Take a new course.
  • Go on a trip.
  • Visit a new part of town.

Which method will you try?

Change social circles.

I’ve heard the saying that if you’re the smartest person in the room, you need to leave the room. This is true in my experience. I find that when I’m not impressed with my result it’s usually because of the circle of friends that I associate with. I’m much more motivated when I’m around individuals that are more successful than me or better than me at something. I apply this philosophy all the way from kick boxing to blogging.

Read less, apply more.

You can consume a new book on personal finance/personal development every day. You can follow every single industry leader on Twitter and read their blogs on a daily basis. You can overload on information all day every day. Eventually you need to do something about it. I actually cut back on my reading recently because I want to get more done. My suggestion is that you try the same when you want better results. Instead of looking for more information, consider applying the information you already have stored.

Just wait it out.

“Tough times never last, but tough people do.” — Robert Schuller

Sometimes the only solution to our problems is time. There will often be times where you just need to wait it out. There’s often no substitute for consistently working hard with ruthless focus.

That’s how you can get better results. Are you ready to try out some of the tips from this list?  You never know what can work for you. We all need a little something different to help us find the better results that we’re chasing after.

‘Read less, apply more’ is the best advice I could think of. What is the point of all that reading if you don’t put it into practice?

All of the big names on the net are out there doing stuff, experimenting and creating the things we read. If you want to be a part of it, then you have to get amongst it!

I’d say start something new and then start talking! As you say, planning without execution is a waste of time.

Stop talking, start doing. Amen. When I’m in a rut this is usually the answer out for me. A good reminder for me on a morning where I have been feeling stuck.

It is all about execution. The people that suceed are the ones that can execute their plan!

Great post, but it makes me think about all the “perpetual victims” that I meet on the day to day basis. I think some people that get a bad break are in that spot in life due to circumstance…… but I think that most are their just because that is where they belong! They just keep making excuses

Thanks for this awesome post! I think it’s actually sad that so much people spend 99% of their time reading when in fact they have twice the knowledge needed to make a really good monthly passive income… I probably spend maximum 10% of my time reading and learning new things and 90% of my time DOING and implementing stuff I learn.

A really good way to get out of such behaviors, from my experience, is to get out and network with people. Joining a skype group of like minded individuals that wants to succeed or a community that will help you (tips and being accountable to a community make awesome results for a lot of people!)

Thanks again for the post! Hope it will help people realize they need to start doing!

I am always trying different things! Most of the time it works. I keep using what works and change the others.I find action always help solve a problem.

Agreed!! It’s time to stop talking and start doing. Go somewhere completely new and meet a whole host of people. It’s amazing what you can learn from different people and how they can impact your life.

There are a lot of angry bloggers out there who are frustrated about their lack of progress. They have nobody to blame but themselves.

@Financial Samurai,

The biggest source of a blog success or failure is always the person behind the blog! well said, but I don’t know if there are that many frustrated bloggers, you have talked to many?
