Day #095: Personal Efforts

When it comes to reviewing our personal efforts, we tend to look at ourselves too harsh being our own worst critic, making us our own worse enemy. 

Did you ever think of it this way? If you wouldn’t say it to someone else, then you shouldn’t be saying it to yourself?

Yes it is great to be tough and hard on ourselves, as this pushes us to do more and outside our comfort zones. However being too hard or tough on ourselves to the point in which we destroy any self-worth let alone motivation to progress further is not advocated! We should be personal with ourselves, but we should also take note of the efforts we have achieved and be careful with how we value ourselves. 

Most people start off with little or low self-confidence, but as a result of their own efforts, they become bold and brave and outgoing. – Brian Tracy

Most of us will start off with little or very low-self confidence, however as noted above it is due to the result of OUR OWN EFFORTS that we become bold and brave and outgoing.

OUR OWN EFFORTS.

You need to get out there and push yourself enough for you to you need to believe in yourself.

If you don’t believe in yourself, how can you expect others too? You need to set the bar and take these personal efforts to help others exceed in their own.

Day #094: You Are Good Enough

Amongst the busy lives we live, we forget to take the time and realize that we are good enough. Ever had the feeling you needed to keep on proving yourself or keep on striving towards something? In the midst of this pursuit, we lose focus of why we were doing this in the first place. Similarly, sometimes we have a very clear view of the things we are pursuing, yet we struggle to hit the goals, the targets or the steps we planned for. We struggle due to numerous reasons, but most of the time you will find it is not your fault. 

Yes, we need to prepare ourselves. Yes, we need to be willing and ready to do what we do best. But sometimes even being good enough, means we still will have struggles. There will be room for growth, we will have doubt, we will face challenges and there will be uncontrollable elements which cause delay. But don’t you ever doubt for a second that you are not good enough. 

We are expected to have setbacks, we are expected to have delays – but what makes us good enough is our ability to recover, our ability to come back for another shot. So do not fall victim to giving up and do not fall victim of doubt. Take hold of how far you have come and take this further than ever before. 

Go. Simply because you are good enough.

Day #093: Serenity Before Us

Sometimes all we have to inspire us is the serenity before us. While at the same time, looking ahead towards our destination can stir quite the scare.

Not always knowing how things are going to pan out can cause unnecessary stress and increase pressure.

But fear not, as whenever something is coming your way, rather than trying to give up, try to find ways to push further.

I understand that looking forward can seem overwhelming and I know that it can all seem a little too much.

But in time, in strength, effort and with a solid mind you will be pushing your way further than you could have imagined.

I know for me – When I look ahead and I can see a pile of work/tasks or challenges to complete. This is where I need to be positive about it.

Being Positive About It

  • Look at the situation and redefine it through a positive perspective
  • Smile about it – embrace the challenge
  • Know your limits, but know you will grow too

Apply a lens which inspires serenity. Easy said than done, I know. But that is why you need to practice. 

“The only way to feel better about myself is to go out… and do it.” – Susan Jeffers

It will always seem impossible in the beginning, but that is because you have no idea of what it yet to come.

But soon enough you will see just how MORE THAN CAPABLE you are and you will feel even better about it once it is done.

So will you apply a positive perspective? Will you seek serenity?

Day #092: Routine Is Key

Routine is what makes things light and easy. They become consistent and remove the overwhelming of decision making. We’re 25% through the year.  A quarter is done and dusted.

Where has it gone? What have you achieved? What are you yet to do?

Is life busy, is life overwhelming? Are you keeping up with what you have chosen to do for the year?

Education? Study? Working? Work? Family? Love?

We have so much going on, when and where can we breathe and reflect let alone let loose and live a little or just have some me time?

Well if it helps – just remember you are not the only one with all these things going on – so don’t think for one second that you have it tougher than someone else. As there will always be someone else who is going through more and worse than you.

With this said though – you are allowed to feel overwhelmed; for if you are feeling overwhelmed, the positive way to view this is that it is your body and mind telling you that you are growing. You have reached a new point outside your bubble of comfort and you are feeling it! Like all the hard work you do at the gym, (you better be going) the next day is when you feel the growth… the good pain.

This overwhelming time may be stressful, full of pressure and scary… but it is growing you and you will get through it.

My trick towards taking on a full on week, a full load of work or in any case, to be honest, is to have a regular routine.

The best way I stay honest, dedicated and motivated is by setting aside the time in my week to do my regulars, making a routine. We are all creatures of habit, some more than others, but we all tend to work better with a set schedule as it is a sense of security.

You can have one big routine, or you can multiple routines in a day. Regardless, build a consistent schedule and create your routine down to the details. Yes, that includes, the meals you make for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, to the times you commute to work, to the music types you listen to at certain times. The list goes on…

Build and create your own, make it a shadow of your existence and make it automated by doing it regularly – soon enough it will come second nature.

With this all in mind, I guess the most important thing is to take a break once in a while. Even if this means 30 mins out of a busy day. A BREAK is a BREAK.

As taking a breather will do these 5 things:

  • Give yourself a perspective on what really matters
  • Lower overall stress levels
  • Raise self-awareness
  • Focus on the present
  • Reduce Negative Emotions

Day #091: It’s All About Pace

A pace is all about keeping yourself steady enough to progress but slow enough to control. Like anything, if we rush it we can make mistakes, however, if we pace ourselves we can take control and speed through something with ease. 

In this busy world, in order for us to speed up and hustle on through, we need to learn to pace ourselves into a new and into a challenge. Yes, it can be great to be thrown into a deep end as it forces us to make decisions and keep ourselves afloat. However, when we pace ourselves into things, we are doing it at a consistent speed of growth, while ensuring we are moving forward at the same time.  Progress over perfection, even if it means slow and steady.

I challenge you to pace yourself! Take control of things, before you jump right in and see how it can benefit you!

Day #090: Creative Exploring

When you are trying to figure out what it is you like to be, be creative and go full force into exploring life, questions will always help jolt your thinking.

Below I have collated the top 8 questions that reignite your thinking to figuring out what you want to do with your life.

  1. What did you dream of becoming when you were a child?
  2. Where do you spend your free time?
  3. Listen to your mind wander – What does it really wish it could be doing?
  4. What is an activity you do that makes you feel so happy, that when you do it, the time flies by?
  5. What type of activities, events, shows, books, media and even people are you attracted to?
  6. Letting go of the past – if you let go of any limitations you have placed upon yourself, what would you do?
  7. What does success really mean to you? Define your perfect life…
  8. You can have any exact amount of money for the rest of your life. How much would you take and how would you use it?

So from the above – have you found yourself closer to identifying what it is you want to do?

Get creative with the above. There is no right or wrong answer, there is just your answer. 

With this, all in mind keep in mind your goals.

Goals are one of the most important parts of any journey, they set the tone for your mission.
Goals provide clarity when times get tough. They reinforce why you are doing, whatever it is you are choosing to do.
Setting goals and visiting them often will keep you motivated.

Day #089: Time For Virtue

There is a great saying which reminds us that the importance of virtue…

“There is virtue in work and there is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook neither.” — Alan Cohen

We work to make a living, we work to survive and we work to make a difference. 

We should also rest to live, rest to survive and rest to make a difference. 

Work and rest go hand in hand. The more of the one, then unevenly yoked will be the other. 

The challenge we face is why do we feel so belittled when resting but are always striving to work…

Day #088: Make Change

Too many times and repeatedly I hear people say they want things to change… well in order for change, you need to get up and take action.

Whether it be the kg’s you weigh, the people in your life, the addictions you carry or simply your laziness. If you want something to change, you need to get up and start making the changes. There is no remote to life, there is no quick win, there is nothing which will do this all for you. Ultimately it comes down to you and the choice you have to choose to make a change. Build the lifestyle, the

Why not build the lifestyle? Cut out the problems, work out and work off those kg’s, stand up to those addictions, say no to laziness. Your time is now!!!

Day #087: Positive Mindset

To remain positive in the chaos and the stress driven lives we face on a daily basis – presents itself as a true challenge. We all have our tough moments and difficulties in which sometimes it is easier to give up or surrender…

We all have our tough moments and difficulties in which sometimes it is easier to give up or surrender…

But, I find the best way to stay positive is to build and create your mindset for optimism and opportunity.

Being positive can be overwhelming for others, but it can also inspire and challenge others – let alone yourself.

Sometimes the difficulties we face in life come from situations out of our control, and other times our difficulties are a direct consequence of the decisions we make.
In life, we cannot change events or their outcome.  We can, however, choose the emotion and meaning we attach to them.

Especially when you are fighting for a goal or working towards a target. You may be stuck to move forward, so find another way but remain positive.

If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan but never the goal. – Unknown

Day #086: The Journey Timeline

In each journey, there is a timeline. Some are long and some are short…

It is common to be frustrated when you feel like you’re just not good enough, successful or simply not making the impact you dreamed of. Let me remind you that every expert was a beginner and today you are somewhere on that journey between a beginner and an expert. Your timeline now can not be compared to an experts timeline which is at their peak.

Keep on your journey and one day you will be at that point on your timeline you have always dreamed of. You will be the expert!!!

Until you are the expert, you need to absorb, learn, grow, understand, listen and take your time in becoming who you are meant to be.
