Day #167: Just Be Enthusiastic

Practicing gratitude is a powerful way to help stay enthusiastic in life, especially when it try’s to drown you. So even in the thick, the dark and the hard, here are 10 tips to help you stay enthusiastic, even when you are crazy busy.

“Every man is enthusiastic at times. One man has enthusiasm for 30 minutes, another for 30 days, but it is the man who has it for 30 years that makes a success out of his life.” — Edward B. Butler

Act Enthusiastic

Force yourself to act enthusiastic, and you’ll become more enthusiastic,” was Frank Bettgers’ number one rule. He challenged people to try this for just 30 days because this one change could easily revolutionize your life. He went on to become one of the most successful salesmen of his day and a best-selling self-help author.

Take 15 minutes a day to do something you love

If you can’t put fifteen minutes into doing what you love, you’re making an excuse. Try this yourself. Make a list of everything you love to do. What’s calling to you right now? No matter how busy you are, take 15 minutes to do something that gives you joy, and in the end, you should see your enthusiasm return.

Get enough sleep!

Learning and memory, metabolism and weight, cardiovascular health, and immune function all suffer when you don’t get enough sleep, and so does mood. Need I say no more…

Surround yourself with the enthused!

Enthusiasm is contagious. Follow it and share it.

Hopefully, some if not all of these enthusiastic tips will help you make your life that extra exciting!

Day #166: Optimism Rocks

Another day. Another chance for Optimism. Are you pumped? Are you excited? Are you ready? Are you willing? Are you determined? Are you positive?

I know over and over, people tend to dread a new day and the grind of 9 to 5 or restless routine. But I have reminded you again and again, that if a new day is making you feel “unmotivated” then maybe you’re not doing the exciting thing you should be. Your passion or joy. 

If there is one thing, that will entice and reshape your perspective of any day, it is optimism. No, it may not be a natural state for some, but with the application, the right mindset and determination, you will be surprised where this positive stubbornness can take you. As per Brian Tracy’s quote; If you want success and happiness, then Optimism is the one quality that is more likely to be associated with this result.

In the case you are unfamiliar with ‘Optimism’, it goes a little something like this:  hopefulness and confidence about the future or the success of something.

So today as you walk into a new adventure, will you take hopefulness and confidence with the plan to conquer not only today but as the week progresses!

Set the level and set the bar, make today the new baseline for your tomorrow. So make sure you make it a good one!

Take hold of optimism and just see where you can go!

“Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other.”— Brian Tracy

Day #165: Choose Richness

Life is full of choices, which can dictate the fullness and richness of your life. Do you choose where to go or do you let someone else decide for you?

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go… – Dr Seuss

Take that first step. Whatever you do, don’t stand still. Dr. Seuss warns us about a universal law called inertia. This means that things keep doing what they’re doing. So, if you’re standing still, you’re likely to stay still. But if you’re moving forward, you’re more likely to keep moving forward. Keep moving towards fulfillment. Richness isn’t money more so your happiness. We can be rich, yet have nothing. 

You’re off to great places! Today is your today. Your mountain is waiting, so you get on your way!

So, what are you waiting for? Get on your way!

Some people base life on the accumulation of wealth, but there is always something better than a rich man’s treasure chest,  a man’s rich life.

Below is a quick link to The A to Z Guide to a Rich Life, which will advise you and encourage you to own and to learn to live richly.

Day #164: Fresh Beginnings

I shouldn’t need to state the obvious, but I will anyway! Today is a fresh start, a new beginning in itself. You have a chance to do, be and take action with whatever you want. But you have to make the choice to do whatever it is you want to do.

With this all in mind, I want to not only remind you that today is a fresh start for a new day, but it can be a fresh start for something more if you want it to be. You can change your life, you can do whatever you want really. But most of all, I want to touch on the opportunity.

Every day is a new day of opportunity, some days you will have more to choose from, but the when it comes to deciding what to do, here are some points to consider, while at the same time, they may even help make opportunities. Regardless, have a think about them and see where they fit in your life.

“Anyone who has ever made anything of importance was disciplined.” — Andrew Hendrixson

  1. Don’t waste your time worrying about what other people think of you.
  2. If you don’t know your passion, follow your heart instead.
  3. Cultivate a hobby.
  4. Let go of friendships that are not working, and focus on the ones that are.
  5. Trust yourself more.
  6. Take care of your body.

Take these 6 points, think about them, detail them and identify how you can apply these into the next day, week, or even season of your life.

Day #163: Jump & Awake

It’s Friday and most people will be ready to jump for joy in celebration that it is the end of the work week. Awake, It’s time to appreciate a great well-deserved break, but let me ask you one thing.

Why is it that you are so happy for Friday to be here? I mean yes obviously it is because you want to do something other that what you have been doing all week. You want to be able to enjoy your time doing the things you want to be doing. Right?

So why on earth are you not doing this every day?

Oh but, I need to work in order to do this or to pay for that. Yes, you do, but why don’t you do something you actually enjoy, love and are passionate about?

But before we get into the debate of following your dreams and being the hero to yourself you have always wanted to be.

Let’s take it back to something a little more basic. Setting a goal each day that will inspire you to jump out of bed.

For some, this will be easy, but others not so easy. 

For me, it is the opportunity of each day, embracing it knowing that you can go into it giving it your best and the best part is, you finish the day knowing you did your best. Which would mean you will always have the best kind of day!

So my challenge to you today is; now that you are already awake, you have already missed the setting of your daily goal, but how about you plan for tomorrow. Plan what it is you are going to jump out of bed for? Then write it down. Capture your adventure, your achievements each day and then you can use this to reflect a little later. You will be surprised at how encouraging it can be.

Monday to Friday are the best kind of days. Saturday and Sunday, are just the same!

So remember!! 

Set a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning. – The Colour Run

Day #162: Steps Of Clarity

It takes time to get to the top of your game and it takes clarity. There is no quick win, other than to keep working towards your end goal each and every day. 

Today I want to give you 3 quick, yet important quotes which you can dwell over and hopefully encourage and inspire you to keep on keeping on! These three steps of clarity will do the trick:

“The most dangerous risk of all – The risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later” – Randy Komisar

“The person that you will spend the most time with in your life is yourself, so you better try to make yourself as interesting as possible.” – Unknown

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing.. that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

Do they give you some clarity? These 3 quotes are important elements in your journey to success. Whether you like it or not, sometimes in order to get through to the top, we will need to go through the tough, but in the end, you should be able to say it was worth the risk, you’re a better person because of it and that your daily diligence and persistence paid off.

So what will you do? Are you willing to apply these 3 to your life?

Day #161: Grand Adventure

Life is full of adventure, full of moments and full of excitement. Life is also full of plenty of things which are the complete opposite of these as well… and when they come rushing down, do you know what you need to do? You just need to remember that life is full of adventures, it is full of moments and full of excitement and it will only be this if you let it be exactly that.

You see, you can choose to accept defeat, you can choose to worry yourself to sleep, or stress so much you don’t sleep at all. You can be fearful of tomorrow, or you can be scared of what is to come…

Or simply; you can be adaptive, strategic and positive and put each one of these times and obstacles into a bucket of either an adventure, a moment or excitement. Either way, regardless of how you categorize these ‘sections’ of your life, this will grow you, make you and create you into something bigger and better than before, even if it does take you a few years to even realize it.

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it. – Kevyn Aucoin

So don’t be such a spoil sport and think of the worst, or mope because you didn’t get to sleep in. Embrace the day and embrace its challenge as one day, you may just find yourself on the edge of life and you will remember the times you could have been or should have been and that you will never have a chance to rise up and be the superstar you are… again.

So why not be a superstar today and be the writer of your own adventure, your own moments and your own excitement. Adventure is waiting. Adventure is ready for you.

Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they’re making to win. Losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that’s the difference. – Lou Holtz

Day #160: A True Calling

What is your calling? Your true calling? What makes you tick? For too long I hear people saying they will do this and conquer that when really all they are doing is reacting to some impulsive ideas and then giving up as soon as they hit a wall. Yes, just like an impulsive shopping spree!

People, you need to understand you are not perfect, you never will be. In doing so, the things that you create and do, won’t also be perfect.

I want to give you a friendly nudge that when you decide to embrace your passion and take ownership of it, you will not only enter a journey, but you will basically be jumping out of your known comfort bubble and into something new. What’s that? Don’t you know what your passion is? Don’t you know what your calling is? Well, why don’t you ask yourself a couple of simple questions…

1. What is it you do that you seem to lose all sense of time?

2. What are you naturally really good at, even if you are not spending hours and hours doing it?

3. What do you like to do in your free time?

These are some simple/basic questions you can use as a base to help prompt the locking down of your passion. 

The real point I want to make today is… If you have decided to do something about your passion, don’t give up. Don’t start than finish. Stay consistent and stay true to yourself, even if it is a small dosage of effort each day. As the small steps will eventually create big enough footprints for others to notice.

“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.” —Neil Gaiman

Day #159: Check Your Attitude

Be ready for anything, be ready for the best to happen and be ready for the worst to happen. Regardless, have your mind in the game and switched on ready to take on whatever comes your way. Attitude will ultimately make you or break you. Remember that. 

If this means taking an attitude check, then so be it. If you go into today with a lousy expectation, you will automatically be looking for the worst, as your mind will have become accustomed to finding the negative. Hence why it is so crucial to have your attitude in the right place. Check yourself before your wreck yourself. Attitude and expectation will define the flow of the day, the week and so on. So make sure you have it in the right place.

Are you ready? 

With this, all in mind, remember that each day is a new day to step it up. Each day you can show improvement, and work harder than you did the day before. This doesn’t mean to spend longer on whatever you are doing, it just means to be more receptive and focused. Applying lessons learned and skills adapted, ensuring you are really putting in your best.

Work harder than you think you did yesterday. – Unknown

Day #158: A Little Care

You don’t need to care about what other people think of you. But at the end of the day, you need to make sure you care about how you think of yourself. 

This is a big step up towards growing up. Remember at school you’d always want to “look cool” or hang out with the popular crowd? When you start to grow up, you’ll learn that other people’s opinions of you and what they think don’t really fit in your life anymore. They become less relevant, or at least they should.

You’ll be so much happier going your own path in life, and once you start that journey you’ll not want to look back!

Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve. – Mary Kay Ash
