P365 2018: Day #178: The Distance

There is a distance between here and where you are going. I will be the first one to admit that when it comes to reflecting on life, I can agree that is not “easy”, the “struggle is real” and that “things won’t always go as planned”. Failure is sitting behind every door ready to pounce, however, what is more, is our fear is emphasizing the impact even before we have even potentially failed in the first place. Could it be possible that society is set up to fail? Is it at all possible that society is giving as a false hope?

Let’s not forget that the world is constantly flashing us a glimpse of instant gratification through the social media lenses that people produce. (images of their perfect and good life moments). Similarly, the world also suggests that things come easy and are just that good, once again this is suggested and projected through the use of viral media of the rich and famous or the handy work of a critiqued photo-shopper. This further leads on to the whole idea of a viral success. How many times have you seen the one hit wonders come up out of nowhere simply because they did one thing and society reacted in a way which has unexpectedly made these individuals superstars and celebrities, all because they posted a vine or YouTube video.

I guess what I am trying to say is, let us not become part of the constant cycle of chasing an expectation and idea that the answers we are looking for, that the results we are wanting and that the success we have fought for is just going to be sitting around the corner and simply land in our laps. For some, it may, but for the majority it won’t. So you need to get up and do something about it.

I have three statements for you – I suggest you take them, read them and apply them. If you want a tangible result you better GRIT up and pull yourself together, as no one else is going to do it for you.

The distance between you and your goal is the one you make. 

The longer you wait, the further the distance will be.

The distance between you and your goal is the walk you didn’t make. 

The journey to the top, the journey to your goal and the success you are longing for, was never intended to be a race. It is a walk. If you’re not confident enough to walk through it all, how can you be worthy to have it all.

The distance between you and your goal is the limit you set. 

The only thing stopping you is your lack of starting. So just start.

P365 2018: Day #177: Value. Self-Value.

Self-value, the very core of an individual. Over the years, society has lowered the expectation of self-value, and in some cases, you can see clearly it has disappeared, almost like it has been forgotten. It has become lost in today’s society. However, there is still hope. You have the power to control you, and you should stand tall and not be dictated by what people think of you. You should own up to being yourself, live being you and embrace the person you are. Learn to love your strengths and weaknesses and understand how you can leverage these every day.

You are worth so much more than you could ever imagine! You just need to realize it! You need to claim it, own it and take it wherever you go.

“Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. ”– M. Scott Peck

Maybe you have problems identifying who you are? Maybe you need to ask yourself some questions?

  • Who are you?
  • What motivates you?
  • What saddens you?
  • Why are you driven by one thing but not another thing?
  • Why do you feel upset in one situation and not in another situation?
  • What are your values and beliefs?
  • Where did they come from?

Do these questions challenge you? Prompt you?

Take a pen, write these down. Answer them. Elaborate on them. Understand who you are and what makes you tick.

P365 2018: Day #176: Checkpoint

We are so close of hitting the halfway point for the year and I figured that now is better than ever to take a quick checkpoint before really analyzing how the first 6 months of the year has progressed.

Looking back over the past months, 2018 is ticking on quickly and soon enough we will be knocking on 2019. The scary fact is, people are planning next year already and we haven’t even finished this year, let alone hit half way. So it is important you make your next 6 months better than the ones before.

If you think you’ve already made it, that’s when you can fall short and go backwards. I’m constantly pushing forward and chasing the element of perfection. – Jason Derulo

But in all honesty, this quick checkpoint should tell you one of two things. Either you need to up your game for the next 6 months, or you need to keep on keeping on. Regardless, there is no backing down. So either way, you need to be moving forward.

On paper, my year is progressing well. I am learning lots, growing lots, achieving lots and majority of this is in my work life. This is great as I have had a goal to set a deep foundation in my career, setting me up for the long years ahead. Likewise, I have also achieved some things this year in my personal life which I have been trying to do for a while. So in all honesty, I should be proud!

But if I have done all this in the first 6 months, what do I have to aim for in the next? I know exactly what. For the next 6 months, I want to up the anti. Recently, I have had to focus on work, which I have loved and will continue to do so. However, I also want to grow things outside of work too. I want to ensure that my work skills don’t only reflect there, but reflect on my entire life. And vice versa.

So what am I going to do?

I’m going to push harder. I will look at the next 6 months just like another day. And each day I strive to do and be better than the day before. If I don’t end up coming out better, than the experience itself is worth it. I still have some goals and things I want to knock out and I still have 6 months to do it. But my plan is to overcome these goals and go greater.

The question I have for you is; what are you going to do for the next 6 months. Checkpoint today and take a high-level evaluation of what you have done for the past 6 months. Are you happy?

We can all improve, but if you are not happy, what are you going to do about it. That is the ultimate question. What are you going to do about your next 6 months?

Will you step it up, keep it going or maybe you won’t do anything?

P365 2018: Day #175: Each Morning

Each morning as the sun rises, or even before, we lie waiting for the sound of what we call the ‘wretched alarm’.

If you’re an iPhone lover, then the mention of the classic alarm ringtone will give you anxiety every time.

Anyway, each morning you’re alarm goes off and you are given a split moment to make a decision. As you open your eyes you know what needs to be done, but within the first 5 seconds of waking you fight every urge to decide shall you snooze or shall you get up.

For me, this is 4:45AM sharp. My back up alarm is 4:50AM, just in case.

As you make this decision and depending on the day, you are reminded of the places you have to be, the job you have and the responsibilities you have.

WHAT WILL YOU DECIDE?

P365 2018: Day #174: Momentum

A few months back I wrote about one’s ability to combine habit and willpower to create further motivation. Like Momentum. Yesterday I noted that step by step you will pick up momentum and if you want results, you need to apply some action to keep momentum.

I’ve always been one to aspire further and higher than the day before. The urge and drive I have to move forward, higher, further, deeper and closer towards my goals, grows stronger each day as I apply daily discipline. This creates a new habit through willpower, which further proves to myself that I can and that I will conquer. In doing so, I am motivated more and more by the result

The sooner you give up, the sooner you accept defeat.

My challenge to you is; before you start moving forward, why not take a moment to identify the next step it is you need to take. What will it require from you and what will you do about it? Sometimes, we can be so caught up in moving forward we miss what we are actually trying to achieve.

Regardless, each day is a chance to start fresh, start clean and a chance to start again. Will you be willing to take today as that chance? Are you up for it?

Start now. Start where you are. Start with fear. Start with pain. Start with doubt. Start with hands shaking. Start with voice trembling but start. Start and don’t stop. Start where you are, with what you have. Just … start. —Ijeoma Umebinyuo

P365 2018: Day #173: Learn & Apply

Don’t beat yourself up! Learn. Reapply, then get back out there and do better this time!

We all make mistakes, it’s only a problem when you keep making the same mistake. The idea is to overcome and do better!

Forgiveness provides the closure and the peace at mind to make it happen!!!

P365 2018: Day #172: Time Focusing

If we spent more time focusing on fixing ourselves, trusting ourselves, believing in ourselves and learning to be confident, then we would have the characteristics to enable and equip us to change the world.

I’m not trying to say that we are all not wise, but sometimes, we think we are making a difference doing something when really all we are doing is exactly that; thinking that we are. Being clever is great, but being wiser will always supersede being clever.

Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself. – Rumi

P365 2018: Day #171: The Challenge

The biggest struggle and the biggest challenge we face is that of ourselves. We are the decision makers, the dictators and the ones who are going drive us to our end. In any given moment, we are living in pursuit of something more. We are living to be more. In primary school, we are striving to make it to the next grade, then in secondary school, we begin to pursue deeper results to land us into a college course, which should enable us to land into the career we have been convinced is our destiny and our ultimate goal. But soon enough, you will wake one morning and will realize, what you are chasing is never going to be living, but only static, as you will be always chasing and striving for the next thing. Stop for a moment. What about now. Think about the now. In order to land into the goal or the dream you need to be equipped, ready and enabled to do so. To do so, you need to have a clear and focused mind daily. If you are too focused on the future, how can you grow in the present to actually reach the future? Take a step back, slow it down and regroup your thoughts, regroup your plan and identify what you need to do in order to successfully move on to the next step.

P365 2018: Day #170: Constant Change

Change is always around the corner, ready to pounce at any time. Most of the time we run from the very thought of change. However, from time to time we will accept it and move on with it. What I suggest is when change comes, it is better to embrace, adapt and adjust, rather than trying to fight it. As constant change is here to stay.

P365 2018: Day #169: Get That Passion

I know I am like a broken record when it comes to chasing your dreams and planning and practicing your passions. But the fact is, these are important elements to one’s life and the sooner you realize it and take action, the sooner you will understand even more. Plus I think you will be a whole lot happier, energetic and enthusiastic.

If you are still trying to figure it all out, today I have a few contextual points which may help you identify what it is you should be doing as your passion.

I would suggest having a read and asking yourself these. Maybe do it alone and write it down, then explore deeper into what these mean to you. If you want to be very detailed, try writing down 10 separate points for each of these, expanding your thinking and really locking down your passion.

  • Is there something you already love doing?  If there’s already something you love doing, you’re ahead of the game. What is it? What are 10 things?
  • What do you spend hours reading about? This will mean you love or enjoy knowing more about it.
  • Brainstorm. Nothing comes to mind right away? Well, get out a sheet of paper, and start writing down ideas. Anything that comes to mind, write it down. Look around your house, on your computer, on your bookshelf, for inspirations, and just write them down. There are no bad ideas at this stage. Write everything down, and evaluate them later.
  • Ask around, and surf for possibilities. Ask other people for ideas. See what others have discovered as their passions. Look all over the Internet for ideas. The more possibilities you find, the more likely your chances of finding your true passion. Find 10 sources of inspiration.
  • Give it a try first. It’s best to actually test your new idea before jumping into it as a career. You may be passionate about it for a few days, but where the rubber meets the road is whether you’re passionate about it for at least a few months. If you pass this test, you have probably found it. So write down things you would like to dive into regarding this passion.
  • Do as much research as possible. Know as much about your passion as possible. If this has been a passion for a while, you may have already been doing this. You can always learn more, so be willing to grow.
  • Practice, and practice, and practice some more. Don’t go into it with amateur skill level. If you want to make money — to be a professional — you need to have professional skills. What 10 ways you will keep yourself committed to practicing?
  • Never quit trying. Can’t find your passion at first? Give up after a few days and you’re sure to fail. Keep trying, for months on end if necessary, and you’ll find it eventually. There may be more than one passion in your lifetime, so explore all the possibilities.

Keep trying, and try again, until you succeed. Success doesn’t come easy, so giving up early is a sure way to fail. Keep trying, and you’ll get there. – Unknown
