Day #130: A Full Potential

Your potential is as far as you want it to go. Today is a new day, a day with the opportunity to say you are willing! You can do it! You can do so much more if you are willing to put in the effort, to dedicate, to focus and push for greatness. The question is what is your goal? Where do you want your greatness to go? 

In our busy lives, we become lost between what we know, what we lack and the in between. In order to grow our potential, we need to take what we know, be willing to push into the unknown and work through whatever it requires getting there. Obstacles seem to be the reality check, giving us a challenge to whether or not we have the willpower to take on anything and everything. We should never give up on ourselves when we hit a wall. We just need to find a way to navigate through or around it. Once again… your potential is dependent on how far you want to go. 

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence. – Confucius

Day #129: Overall Consistency

Consistency is key. Especially when we combine this with an overall perspective.

If your morning routine is setting the tone for your whole day then imagine what would happen if you do each morning right, for the rest of your life…

People, including yourself, may find it bizarre that the idea of relaxing could be productive. For example; running or blogging. Personally, I have found that a strong and effective routine, can bring happiness in the weirdest ways. Simplifying your life down to the details and time boxed, enables you to focus and stay true to your own goals as well as break down and eliminate excuses. I don’t fill out my calendar, nor should I have to. I say to myself, this is when I will do it, this is how I will do it and that is that. The plan is set. Any alteration from this set plan is when I become restless and unfocused, even to the extents of being aggravated or easily annoyed. As any slip or lacking to complete a scheduled routine – to me comes as a failure, or that I am not staying consistent with my plan to move forward and if I am failing to move forward, I am letting my old self or lazy self, win and I am essentially becoming less of a greater me.

 “Action is the foundational key to all success.” – Pablo Picasso

If you are consistent you will keep it. Not just what you have achieved, but the mindset, the discipline, and the attitude. So when you work for something do it consistently.

Day #128: Great Includes You

We are all GREAT and that includes you! The people in your life whether it be one, three, five, twenty, fifty or more. These people stick around because of who you are.

And it is very much possible that you inspire them without you even knowing in one way or another. They probably do the same to you.  Don’t doubt your ability to have an impact on another. Don’t doubt about just how important you are, as we are all greater than we think. Don’t underestimate yourself.

We are all on a journey, some of us at the end of the timeline while others are still learning. Whichever point you are on the timelines, is greater than another. You should and you can inspire those yet to be there, while at the same time you should be inspired by those further along the timeline! Even if you don’t realize it now – in time you’ll see just how and who you inspire. So keep at it! Keep being the great you and keep inspiring!

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit – Aristotle

Day #127: A Life Approach

Today I ask you to ask yourself what will you be? What is your approach…

Will you be a wolf, a lone warrior taking on the world?

Will you be a lion, the king of your jungle?

What goals have you set? Will you smash them and beat them? Or will you hardly attempt them?

Today, will you be stronger than yesterday?

Will you be better than yesterday?

Will you be yourself and show the world just how AWESOME you are?

Will you be positive or negative?

But most of all will you stay the course of your dreams, will you stay on target?

Will you conquer?

I dare you to get out there and be motivated!

What approach will you take to get to where you want to go. What approach will you take to be what you want to be?

Day #126: Push Through

Sometimes the only way out is through.

To make it through a day you must go from start to finish – regardless of the end result. However, the journey through the day can be taken through multiple routes.

The people, the places and the experiences each day will test your decision and your sense of judgment. You will need to be snappy and make on the spot decisions. Other times you will have what feels likes all the time in the world to decide your next steps.

Regardless, you should be prepared for one and or the other or even both. This is not a perfect world, there is the perfect world scenario, in which everything just seems to fall into place when it needs to. But if this was to happen – how would we ever learn? How would we grow? How would beat our very own competition of the person we were yesterday?

Everything is hard before it is easy ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sometimes, all it takes to put you back on the path to success is the right attitude… and the right song! So how about you put on your bounciest tune and kick off your path!

Day #125: Nostalgia Brings Focus

If you are looking for a focus hype or a way to motivate yourself, my go to place is nostalgia. You will be surprised just how much of an impact the hobbies, the fun, the memories and the experiences you had as a child can and will have an effect on you. Not even as a child, but memories from further back. Times you cherished and times you will never forget. 

Music itself has the ability open your mind into a deeper imagination, and into a deeper focus. It takes me back to a moment the song is related to.

Through nostalgia, we’re reminded of the places we grew up, our families, the wondrous curiosity of our childhood, the joy of our favorite moments, past romances and the many places we have ventured to.

As John Tierney puts it for the New York Times:

Nostalgia has been shown to counteract loneliness, boredom and anxiety. It makes people more generous to strangers and more tolerant of outsiders.

Nostalgia does have its painful side, but the net effect is to make life seem more meaningful and death less frightening. When people speak wistfully of the past, they typically become more optimistic and inspired about the future.

I have found that while utilizing the effects of nostalgia, I am becoming more and more empowered, motivated and even happier as this literally like reliving highlights of my childhood.

I encourage you to find your sweet spots of nostalgia and to see what wonders it can do for you. You will be surprised at what it can do and you will be even more excited once it reopens some lost memories, some personal interests, and hobbies you had forgotten all about.

So what has this done for me:

  • It feels like a holiday in the mind
  • It releases endorphin’s
  • It creates a bounce or rush of happiness
  • Wants me to want to relive the experience even more
  • Increases my focus and productivity
  • Reminds me of when things were so much simpler
  • I feel more optimistic
  • Relaxes my mind
  • Reminds me of just how far I have come
  • Reopens lost dreams, ideas and personal interests

Day #124: Take A Jump

Are you struggling to jump out of bed and do what you need to do? Are you tired of surviving and not living? Most of your time it is that 9 to 5 thing you call a job. For some, this is longer… But what if the thing you are doing is your passion… would it really be a struggle to jump out of bed?

1. THIS IS YOUR LIFE! OWN IT!

If you continue to tell yourself that somehow, somewhere, life is going to take care of itself. Absolutely NOTHING is going to change for the better for you. Unless you take action to do so. Life is not a rehearsal, and no one owes you anything. It’s time to start owning your life and start making better quality choices, and that begins with thinking better quality thoughts. Own your circumstances and change them. 

2. FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT IS BUGGING YOU!

The most comforting thing is finding someone, even better, several people who relate to your struggle. It is so easy to sit and complain about them about everything that is wrong. I suggest that you figure out what exactly the problem is and work on changing it for YOUR own good. 

3. TIME TO MAKE A PLAN!

It’s going to make you feel instantly better to take out a piece of paper and plan out how you are going to make a change that will be more fulfilling to you. Or if you have some goals, or want to change this or do that, then what you need is a Push Factor! Are you sick of where you are? Then use that as a burning motivator to DO something about your situation! Your cause has to be greater than your fears!

4. REST AND SLEEP BEFORE

Sleep earlier so that you can wake up well rested. I realize this is far easier said than done when you have children and a family but do your best to take care of yourself on Sunday. However you do it – make sure you have a relaxing routine Sunday evening to get your head in a rest mode before your back into the week mode.

5. TAKE BREAKS!

Take a walk, speak to a colleague, get a drink of water. Do something to just blow off some steam! Connecting with another human being always helps redirect certain internal energies, especially when talking to someone you like. Grab a coffee, read the paper, you could even do some stretches. Whatever it is (even if it is quick) do something for a moment to reboot your mind.

6. BE THANKFUL!

Be truly and sincerely thankful for what you have. Each day is a new opportunity and that in itself we should be thankful for. It is sad of just how quickly we forget! Remind yourself of the blessings in your life, over and over again if you must. It’s so easy to lose sight and focus of what really, truly matters. 

Keeping in mind the above 6 points – think about how you can take a jump in your life and with the addition of adapting the above and making some new choices for yourself, that will better enable your lifestyle.

Day #123: The Intention To Grow

The intention to grow is self-sufficient and can be cultivated through a healthy challenge or goal setting.  When we are given a challenge which coincides with something we wish to accomplish we hit a sweet spot which will benefit us by fuelling our priorities, our motivation and focus.

However, at the same time there’s always going to be something trying to grab your attention and raise your stress levels. But you have the choice to react or to respond. The key is to get ahead and to get a handle on things before they become out of hand. Even if you are unsure of how things will play out, taking action, taking control and having something to work with, is better than simply having an idea. Cultivating, pruning and reiterating the solution to the challenge is a great way to continue to move forward, innovate and keep you honest with progression, while at the same time maintaining a growth aspect. 

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Day #122: Setbacks Are Growth

Do not lose sight of your motivation, your goals, and dreams due to setbacks. Yes, I understand, this is easier said than done, but you need to fight it. As setbacks come and go, some will be easier than others to conquer, while others will require you to give it everything you’ve got and then some more. Pushing forward each day requires you to conquer excuses, and to challenge the games your mind will play. Train your mind to be stronger than excuses!

Setbacks require you to grow a little, stretch a little and be willing to go or do the things we didn’t think we could or would be doing. 

On a side note, do not take for granted what you have, or how far you have come. Just because you hit a setback, this does not mean you have not achieved anything. Someone else is looking up to you for something you have already accomplished. They are motivated due to your motivation and determination. So if you’re in a rut, remember you were in a rut before you started. If you don’t think you are an inspiration, you are dead wrong.

Day #121: Your Mind Games

The games you play with your mind, the challenges your mind has to confront and every decision you need to make are all things you must learn to manage. Will you let your mind choose a POSITIVE or a NEGATIVE reaction?

It’s a simple choice really. But each decision will require work, hard work actually.

“A negative mind will never give you a positive life.” ― Ziad K. Abdelnour

If you choose to take the POSITIVE side, this requires you to think optimistically and spread joy and happiness around you. I guarantee you, that if you make those around you feel good about themselves and happy, you will always be happy. But don’t get me wrong.. this will require some effort to keep your attitude and mind in the right place. Especially when the day goes south… will you cave and give into being negative, or will you choose to look on the bright side of things?

If you choose to take the NEGATIVE side, this means you won’t be thinking of the positives, but being the critical one. When things get tough, rough and unfair, you won’t look for the positives but accept the negatives. Accepting the negatives diminishes your mentality to look for solutions, it exercises your mind to lower yourself and your ability to comprehend the good things, even in the worst of situations. You can either choose to dwell on it or choose to fight it and find that light of happiness…

I choose POSITIVE.

What will you choose?
