Day #085: What’s Driving You?

What is driving you?

Today I want to prompt your thinking, challenge your motives and encourage you!

Let’s start with your morning:

  • What makes you get out of bed?
  • Why do you have/do not have breakfast? Is there a reason for either?
  • Are you a morning person? What would one word define why you are?
  • What would one word define you if you’re a night owl?
  • How long does it take you to smile?
  • What’re the first thoughts on your mind?

Your daily do:

  • Why do you do the job you do?
  • Would you do it for free?
  • If you don’t have a job, then what would you want to do?
  • Are you ever stressed?
  • Does stress motivate or hinder you?
  • Challenges or no challenges?
  • Are you stretching your comfort zone?
  • How often?

Spare time: 

  • How do you spend it?
  • How much spare time do you have?
  • Weekdays compared to weekends?
  • Do you exercise?
  • At home or gym?

The above are just some prompt questions to get you thinking about your drive and or motivation.

Motivation comes from looking at the things you want and realizing what it takes to get it – Unknown

What I would suggest is you take the same idea and ask yourself about all areas of your life.

The more direct yet open questions you ask the more you will need to think about it.

Try writing these down with a pen and paper as a better way to work that brain of yours.

DO IT!

Day #084: Keep On Going!

You just got to keep on going! I’m no swimmer but I am persistent. I’m constantly fighting myself about the idea of being where I want to be.

I can see the end, I can see what I want and I know what I want.

However, I also see the present and I don’t entirely see how I am going to get to where I want to go or I don’t always see the results coming through.

But what I do know, is if I continue to push, continue to step it up, to bounce back, to fight harder, I will get there… I will get there.

No matter what comes my way, I need to adjust, I need to embrace and I need to conquer any hindrance. If I fail, I shall try again.

Regardless – I will learn and pivot and go after my goals with a new perspective!

SO CAN YOU!

My challenge to you today is to challenge your fears, be willing to grow and just see what you are really capable of!

 “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it.” — Maya Angelou

And whenever something gets in the way, hinders you and creates a setback. No matter what…

JUST KEEP SWIMMING

Day #083: React And Act

How we react and act in the moments we encounter can change things in an instant. We all make mistakes in life and there is no point giving yourself the guilt trip about it.

All the guilt in the world cannot change it, however, what you can do is reclaim your confidence moving forward by applying yourself into forgiveness, work to rebuild, and work to make a difference!

Today is a new day and so is tomorrow.

Don’t go into either of these stressed!

 “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it.” — Maya Angelou

Worrying won’t make it easier or better, it won’t change a thing. All it will do is scare you, bring fear and lower your confidence.

Utilize this into a fuel towards making yourself better, prepping yourself, working harder, growing and to be willing to step out of comfort zone!

Embrace these opportunities of creating negatives into positive outcomes.
It ain’t easy, but the hard effort will reap the rewards of self-growth and returns for the future!

Rethink your thoughts today!

Day #082: Kill Self-Doubt

If you struggle with self-doubt, you will know that it is you biggest competition. Yes, your peers, your friends or other people may challenge your skills and how you progress, but self-doubt trumps that. Competition can be healthy and so can a good challenge. Funny enough, there is no greater challenge than yourself, however, there comes a limit and a line in which if we pass it can consume us. 

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose. – Wayne Dyer

When you start to self-doubt remember, you didn’t get to where you are today by chance or luck. You have hustled your way here and that speaks for itself. So whatever it is your doubting now, remember you’ve got this and you just need to decide if you will face the opportunity to grow or accept an obstacle and don’t grow at all. Choose wisely as GROWTH will also trump being static or linear.

Day #081: Today Is A Zero Day

I have news for you! Each and every day you have a chance to make things happen. You have zero excuses! Surprisingly and I am sorry to disappoint you… but things are not just going to fall into your lap. Twon’twont just happen – even if an opportunity comes your way which could ignite these things to happen… The opportunity still needs to be addressed and acted on.

That’s all on you. 

But to counter this problem and to ensure you are making things happen on a daily basis. We can apply the zero-day thinking.

“A zero day is the day when you don’t do a single thing towards your goal.” – Be Limitless

Regardless of what your goal is this is how it works. Each day you do 1 thing (at least) which is related to your goal. One thing closer. 

The best part is, you can have multiple goals, which means you can have a system to keep you motivated, or changing it up on a regular basis. As long as each day you’re doing that little something towards something greater. 

Example:

  • Maybe you missed your GYM routine due to a long night at work? = Do 1 push up. / Do 1 something – before going to bed.
  • Didn’t get to read my book today = Read one page / Read one sentence
  • Didn’t write in my journal today = Write one sentence / Write one word to define the day

You get the idea.

If you want to change it up you can go ULTIMATE and do a 365 Challenge picking one thing and do it every day. 100% commitment.

Are you up for it?

Day #080: A Future Glimpse

It is always healthy to stop for a moment and envision what and how your future endgame looks. Without getting caught up in the specifics or into a fantasy land, taking a moment to pause and glimpse into the future, can work as a key motivator towards your success as well as help keep you remain focused and on track. 

Take a moment today to envision yourself at the end of your goal. 

How does it look? Describe it.

  • What is it you are doing?
  • What can you do?
  • What is new?
  • How do you feel?

Think about the achievements you potentially received.

Visualize these and then apply them as bouncing boards to inspire you to greater things.

A small task you can do to facilitate with your journey to your goal is to write down the goals or the dream you have then work backward.

List all the things that would have needed to happen in order for you to get there.

Of course, your won’t knows everything, but an outlined or high-level guide will go a long way. But where you can add detail, do so.

See what you can check off in that list, or see what you can actually take action on already, and plan to do so!

“The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and have the faith that it is possible.” – Richard M. DeVos

Day #079: Lessons To Learn

What we encounter today should be the lessons for tomorrow. The knowledge we accumulate day in and day out should be the continuous fuel we require to motivate our willpower to adapt and learn. Learning is not just the experience, but it is the choice to understand and take action. 

Choosing to acknowledge that we must learn is enabling ourselves to be a better version of ourselves. We can stick to being linear, or we can take hold of the opportunities and the things around us to learn and to start to spread our wings beyond the linear world. 

Imagine if all your problems were solved, what would you do?

Day #078: Best Is Yet To Come

Even after you have experienced the best thing yet, the best is still yet to come. We will never be perfect, but we can strive to be better or experience better. You can wait around for things to happen, you can wait around expecting the cup to one day overflow.  BUT, if you decide to start pouring for yourself and filling the cup yourself, things will start to flow. You as you grow, you as you develop and you as you impact the world around you will soon enough be a cup overflowing.

You are in control of your life, your ambitions, your goals and most of all your attitude.

Every morning as I commute to work, I am constantly reminded that regardless if the day is looking half-empty or half full…

I need to take action and make sure I am pouring the water. But less about me and more about you!

But if you don’t start from a cup half empty, how will you ever get to a cup half full?

Doesn’t matter if the glass is half-empty or half-full. All that matters is that you are the one pouring the water – Mark Cuban

Day #077: Direction Of Your Dreams

Trying to navigate our lives into the direction of dreams can seem easier said than done… 

Whether you are young, old or in between, I know you have dreams. Dreams to do something better, to live differently, to have this or to have that or to be here or there. Regardless, what if I told you that you could have these. What if you can start heading in this direction today. We live day by day in fear of not keeping up with the Joneses. Well, you don’t have to. Those dreams you have, those aspirations and those passions can all be true. Why not take a stand in confidence to follow those dreams. Why not work every day to get closer to these dreams, goals, aspirations and passions…

You know that nervous feeling you get just before you’re about to do something new before you take a chance? That my friend is you stepping out of your comfort zone. Whether it is closer to your goals or not, this is growing you.

Go now and grow and go in the direction of your dreams.

Day #076: Step Up To Yourself

If you can’t learn to trust, love and care for yourself, then how can you expect to step up and become the greatest you can be?

Growing up sometimes isn’t about taking on the new and unknown, but sometimes it is stepping up and taking controls of the skills and talents we have already. 

Think back to the happy moments, when time didn’t seem to be bound by the busy world we live in.

Time was just you and your imagination and a life full of adventure.

Think back to your original aspirations and dreams of who and what you wanted to be and do when you grew up?

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” – Michelangelo

Questions to ask yourself:

  1. Are you doing or chasing that dream today?
  2. If you are not doing or chasing the dream, what do you need to do to start?
  3. Is that childhood dream still the same passion today?
  4. If your dream has changed, then what is it?

The bigger questions to ask yourself are:

  1. Are you sculpting and creating yourself into that future aspiration?
  2. Are you encouraging yourself, pushing yourself and striving for the next taste of success?

Find what it is you, love, find what it is you are good at and find what it is that you would want to do every day.

Don’t let life kick you into the the adult you don’t want to become – Chris Hadfield
