P365 2018: Day #168: Sometimes When You…

Sometimes in order to win, we may just need to lose, to give us the motivation and drive to push further next time.

If you are failing, you are actually progressing more than those you are choosing to stay comfortable. To fail is to learn and to grow, adapt and try again. To be comfortable is to remain the same, static and without growth. The problem is, in order to grow (regardless if you fail or not), one must take a risk and face the fear of vulnerability and put something on the line, even if it is your confidence. The best part of taking small steps and stretches from outside of your comfort zones is the safety net it provides around you. I am not suggesting you go jump outside of your comfort zone, to a degree that you are throwing yourself under a bus, but drip feeds your growth, slow and steady or at a rate, you can be comfortable with.

Just don’t fall into the trap of becoming constant and being stuck in another comfort zone.

P365 2018: Day #167: Practicing Gratitude

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.

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 watch 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…

Feed yourself well

When your body doesn’t get the nutrients it needs, it affects brain chemistry, which impacts mood, memory, and cognitive function. The right diet actually changes how the brain functions, which can boost your mood, help you deal with stress, and make it easier to stay enthusiastic.

Move your body

When you’re feeling unenthusiastic, you may want to head for the couch, but instead of lying around go do something that will make you sweat. Take a walk, swim, dance, go throw a football around with a friend. Anything that gets your body doing what it was made for (i.e., moving!). This will make it easier for you to find your enthusiasm again, heck you might even surprise yourself. I did.

Own self-compassion

Self-compassion is the practice of noticing what you’re feeling, remembering that you’re human. If you practice responding to yourself with self-compassion rather than aggression, you’ll discover it’s a much more pleasant way to live, and when life is better, it’s so much easier to stay enthusiastic.

Meditation

This will vary for many, but spending the time with your creator even just 10 minutes a day can spur on a positive change!

See “whats going well’

Human beings seem to be wired to focus on what’s not going well. It’s important to notice this, of course, so we can make adjustments, but it’s equally important to notice what’s going well.

De-clutter

It is hard to be enthusiastic, when you are weighed down. This is an internal and external element too. Keep your environment de-cluttered as well as your heart.

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!

P365 2018: Day #166: We Wait.

The problem is we all wait for Friday as if it is mystically better than all the other days. We wait a year for summer, or we put things off because of the weather, and we wait around waiting for happiness to jump into our laps.

Well, this is what you need to do!

– Treat each day like it better than every other day. This comes through attitude!
– Stop making excuses and start creating solutions! If you can’t run because of the rain. 1. Run in the rain or 2. Run inside – make it happen people!
– Happiness is already in our laps, we just need to turn it on, let it out and set it free. Be happy because you can!

P365 2018: Day #165: Small Snippet

Today I am going to share with you a small snippet from the well-known Dr Seuss:

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…

Life is full of choices. Do you choose where to go or do you let someone else decide for you?

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

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.

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

P365 2018: Day #163: Get Back Up

When the day has you down, you get back up and give it another go. When it all seems too tough, you get back up and give it another go. When everything around you is crumbling, you get back out there and start rebuilding. You see happiness shouldn’t be based on the external things around you – but it should be from your inner mental attitude. Fight back today and reclaim your happiness.

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!

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

P365 2018: Day #161: Living Forward

What if you walked away from it all. Walked away from the constant routine of trying to become something in a race to riches. Living to survive and living to do enough to be enough, is not living. Living to please, living to prove and living to show, is not living. Living is of freedom. Living is of passion. Living is of purpose. Are you living?

What if you could walk away from the usual expectation of a modern lifestyle? Step away from the ‘9 to 5’ grind or the 12 hour days and strip back to the simpler things in life.

What if you could step away, live and worry-free of doing, being and earning to survive in an endless routine to hopefully one day pay off debt and become a somewhat known individual for potentially something or someone who really represents nothing.

What if you asked yourself:

“What do I really, really want?”

P365 2018: Day #160: Call For Passion

What about passion? For too long I hear people saying they will do this and conquer that when really all they are doing is giving it there best shot for a small period of time and giving up as soon as they hit a wall. It is almost 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. Whats that? Don’t you know what your passion 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. If you are still unsure, shoot me a mail at contact.clfurlong@gmail.com and I’ll be more than happy to help!

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 then 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

P365 2018: Day #159: ACTION NOW

Today is the day to TAKE ACTION! The right time is now! Don’t start tomorrow, or the next day but start today! Start working for the dreams, the goals, the lifestyle, the future you wish to endure. Take a step of faith or take a leap… but if you don’t start how can it ever happen??

P365 2018: Day #158: When Training

When you are training your mind to follow a habit, routine or build consistency, actually keeping the consistency, regardless of the outcome is what will help you in the long run.

Now, this doesn’t only apply for exercise or running, it applies to anything and everything you are working for. If you blog like me, if you draw or create art, or whatever it may be. If you make a commitment to yourself, to your body and mind, you need to keep that promise and prove to yourself and convince your willpower that you have what it takes.

So next time:

  • When you don’t feel like doing it, this is the time you need to do it!
  • When you think you cannot do it, give it a go anyway!
  • When you have less time to do it, make time to do it later, or do a smaller effort of it, but regardless just do it!
  • When you feel too tired, do it anyway!
  • When you are scared, give it a go anyway!
  • When the weather or another object is prohibiting you to, then find a workaround!
  • When you find there are excuses, don’t accept them and still do it!

Keep on keeping on!

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
